705 is endowed with state of the art features such as the tweeter-ontop design borrowed from the 800 Series Diamond, this uncompromising high performance two-way speaker reveals subtle nuances in music others miss. Even challenging instruments such as the piano are conveyed with uncanny realism, presence and transparency

Replacing the CM Series, the entire 700 range combines studio-grade 800 Series Diamond technologies with purpose-built innovations to elevate home audio to an entirely new level. All of this performance comesfrom room-friendly cabinets designed to fit beautifully into your home environment. Designers often argue that a product's functional and aesthetic qualities are closely related. We couldn't agree more. In fact, the solid body tweeter on top of the 705 and 702 speakers is a case in point. It's an object engineered first and foremost for acoustic performance. But in its minimal simplicity, it's also undeniably beautiful.

The 700 series is quite a step up from the CM series it replaces with much greater detail and resolution along with a more involving presentaion generally. Call us to arrange a demo today!

The following technologies combine to make 700 series very special indeed;

Solid body tweeter The 705 and 702 speakers employ solid body tweeters, a high performance design feature found previously only on the 800 Series Diamond. Its acoustically optimised form is milled from a solid block of aluminium, forming a structure that's exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.

Carbon Dome™ tweeter Carbon Dome tweeters are a brand new technology purpose-built for the 700 Series. Delivering a dramatic improvement on the aluminium Double-dome tweeter, they raise the breakup threshold to 47kHz, for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail.

Continuum™ cone First introduced with the 800 Series Diamond, the Continuum cone represents the biggest step-change in midrange performance since Kevlar® . Its woven coated material provides highly controlled break-up, resulting in a more open, neutral midrange.

Midrange chassis The three floor-standing loudspeakers in the range employ a new FEA-optimised aluminium chassis for the midrange drivers. This new design is stiffer than the zinc chassis of the CM Series, for improved control and cleaner midrange presentation.

Decoupled midrange The midrange drivers in the floor-standers also feature a decoupled design, adapted from a similar system in the 800 Series Diamond. Decoupling reduces cabinet colouration, and further improves midrange clarity.

Aerofoil™ Profile cone The new Aerofoil Profile bass cone has the same variable thickness design as the bass cones in 800 Series Diamond speakers. Developed using advanced computer modeling techniques, it provides stiffness and rigidity where it's needed most, for deep and dynamic bass.

Why is this item collection only?

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.

To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.

Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).

Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.

Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
