New Carbon Dome tweeter assembly.

Like yourself some Bowers & Wilkins 800 Diamond Series loudspeakers? A bit too pricey for your pocketbook? Relax. Exhale. I’ve got some great news for you… B&W has just announced the 700 Series of loudspeakers (replacing the CM line), and they’re chock full of 800 Diamond technology goodness at a significantly lower price. The line has a total of nine new designs, so there’s something for everybody: three floor standing models, three standmounts, two centre-channel offerings, and a subwoofer for those so inclined.


The 702 S2 comes in at $4,500 USD.

The 700 Series borrows some of the key design elements of the Diamond line such as the Continuum driver material, modified Aerofoil bass drivers, and an all-new Carbon Dome tweeter that’s enclosed in a solid aluminum enclosure. Tell me more, you say?

Finishes on the new line include the legendary Rosenut, the living-room, and lifestyle-friendly satin white, and the coveted gloss black. Pricing ranges from $1,250 USD ($1,520 CAN), to $4,500 USD ($5,500 CAN).
