Product Information

Studio Sound Comes Home

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.

Solid Body Tweeter

Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimised housing for the tweeter – one 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 aluminum 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.

What stands go with this speaker that one can buy?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The 705 is 7.8 wide by 11.9 deep, making it a bit too large for stands we sell from Sanus., Focal, and Dynaudio. If the top plate on a stand is too narrow or too shallow the speaker is a risk of tipping. A robust stand should have provisions to add sand or shot to increase mass and further stabilize the stand to safely support the 20lb weight of the 705. We
could suggest adding a larger metal top plate but, unfortunately we cannot endorse modifications to products.
