Bowers & Wilkins 700 Series 3: All the speakers detailed #Bowers #Wilkins #Series #speakers #detailed Welcome to Americanah Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
After revamping its 800 Series of stereo speakers in 2021, esteemed British hi-fi brand Bowers & Wilkins has detailed its step-down 700 Series, made up of floorstanding, stand-mount and centre channel loudspeakers.
The 700 Series serves the function of being able to adapt to stereo music and home cinema set-ups, featuring technologies that have dripped down from the flagship 800 Series into the 700’s more affordable form.
700 Series 3 design and features
The 700 Series introduces slimmer cabinets for the first time in the range’s history, with a curved front baffle and drive units mounted in external pods. The revised form is said to reduce the impact of the loudspeaker baffle on the speaker’s performance, minimising the cabinet diffraction effect so all you hear is the music and not the cabinet adversely affecting the sound.
The new cabinets will be presented in four finishes, including an all-new Mocha finish that sports a highly grained wood finish. Mocha joins the Gloss Black and Satin White finishes and it’s these three that will be offered to most markets around the world. The fourth, Rosenut, will only be available in Asian and Pacific markets.
Four models within the 700 Series incorporate the Solid Body Tweeter-on-top design, which includes the 702 S3, 703 S3 floorstanders, 705 S3 standmount and HTM71 S3 centre speaker. The range of speakers with the tweeter-on-top design also means a whole home theatre system can be created that utilises the design.
The Tweeter-on-top design has been re-engineered for the 700 Series, with the enclosure lengthened to reduce distortion and two-point decoupling design improved, the tweeter is better isolated from the loudspeaker cabinet for a cleaner, more open soundstage.
All three-way loudspeakers feature the Biomimetic Suspension that was introduced with the 800 Series Diamond range. This suspension replaces the fabric spider found in previous generations, as Bowers & Wilkins claims the new suspension reduces “unwanted noise from the output of the spider as the midrange cone operates.”
Speakers with mid/bass drive units – 707 S3, 706 S3, 705 S3 and HTM72 S3 – benefit from upgrades too, with new motor systems and improved chassis for “cleaner output.” Bass uses B&W’s Aerofoil technology that aims to deliver cleaner, lower distortion bass.
