Bowers & Wilkins’ 700 Series Speaker Lineup Boasts a Slew Of Advancements

Founded in the UK in 1966 by Roy Wilkins and John Bowers, Bowers & Wilkins is an elite audio brand known for producing world-class speakers. And while the West Sussex outfit has been steadily pushing the envelope over the last five and a half decades, the company has now significantly raised the bar in its space yet again with the release of a new range of speakers that aim to bring theater and recording studio-quality sound into the home.

This new range of three-way loudspeakers benefits from six main technological advancements that take B&W’s already stellar audio quality to new heights. In addition to utilizing the 800 Series’ existing Biomimetic Suspension, this also includes the use of a new, more elongated solid body tweeter-on-top housing design using carbon dome tweeters, Aerofoil Profile bass cones, composite construction Continuum cones, and midrange decoupling. Despite the addition of these new features and systems, the B&W’s 700 Series still maintains the British brand’s sleek, signature aesthetic.

The 700 Series lineup is comprised of nine all-new speakers — as well a new stand known as the FS-700 S3. This includes the 1,000-watt DB4S 10” subwoofer, the HTM72 S3 compact center channel speaker, the more robust tweeter-on-top tech-equipped HTM71 S3 center channel speaker, the 707 S3 stand-mount speaker, the 706 S3 stand-mount speaker, and the tweeter-on-top-equipped 705 S3 stand-mount speaker. What’s more, this new speaker lineup is also headlined by a trio of tower floor speakers with the 704 S3, the 703 S3, and Bowers & Wilkins’ new state-of-the-art flagship 702 S3 floor speaker.

Available now in a slew of finish options including gloss black, satin white, silver, or mocha, the Bowers & Wilkins 700 Series Speakers start at $1,499, and can reach $7,000 depending on the model.
