705 Signature Bookshelf Speakers - Pair

The 705 Signature is the bookshelf model in the new Signature Series. The audiophiles at Audio Advice are huge fans of bookshelf speakers. When you put them on a great speaker stand and properly position them, they can give you an amazing three dimensional sound stage. The 705 Signature is finished in exclusive Datuk Gloss and features optimized crossovers, a Continuum cone mid/bass driver and a Carbon Dome tweeter housed in Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top enclosure.

*Stand/s not included.

The 705 Signature, with all of its great driver technology and crossover upgrades has an effortless sound that is almost spooky. When you shut your eyes, the soundstage is incredibly wide and deep.

We think the 705 Signature will be one of the best possible choices you could make for a bookshelf speaker in a small to medium-sized room. Their bass performance reaches down to 50 Hz which is pretty darn low. And you could always augment their bass response with a fast subwoofer like the B&W DB4. If your room is larger than around 13 by 18, you’ll probably want to consider adding a sub or stepping it up to the 702 Signature!

Crafted. Honed. Perfected.
Featuring the Continuum cone and Carbon Dome, this compact standmount loudspeaker is finished in exclusive Datuk Gloss and features optimized crossovers, making it worthy of the Signature nameplate.

Optimized tweeter housing
Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the Solid Body Tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized housing that is exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.

Sharper detail
Carbon Dome tweeters are purpose-built for the 700 Series and deliver pinpoint imaging accuracy and detailed insight in to your music.

Truly amazing sound
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum cone mid-bass driver.
