Excellent speakers.

Crutchfield customer from Truckee, CA on 7/23/2020

These speakers really are THAT good. Just what I was looking for. Highly detailed without being harsh in the upper frequencies. I sometimes listen to old TV shows (Turner Classic Movies, Perry Mason, etc.) and the sound and dialogue could become strained, leading to an uncomfortable listening situation. But these B&W handle it well. (The associated center channel HTM71 is excellent also. No chestiness or boxy sound. Highly recommend.)

Pros: Good high frequency presentation, detailed, no harshness.

Cons: Some sibilance but not even close to a deal breaker.

Quality B&W purchase

Wayne from Decatur, GA on 6/11/2020

Great speakers! Sound is much more impressive and open, that belie its size. Caveat emptor: Quality of these speakers will expose the quality of your recordings, so then you'll need to buy better versions of your old LP's/CD's etc. Bi-amp/Bi-wire recommended to give your speakers just a little bit more headroom/power, as these speakers like to be played loud. The only negative might be getting that lowest bass "thump" (sub-50Hz) but that's not what these speakers were intended for. Pairing with a good sub, creates a compact, high quality 2.1 system for a small/medium sized space (this was used in a home office/den) that blends away into the decor.

Pros: Quality sound, hi-fi across the stated frequency range. High quality fit,finish, and aesthetic.

Cons: None, really. Look to pair with a agile, powerful sub to get that lowest reach, but otherwise, high quality purchase.

Bowers and Wilkins 705 S2

Crutchfield customer from Glendale, CA on 6/1/2020

Crutchfield shipped very fast. I have my 705 S2 speakers mated to a Marantz SR8012 AV receiver. I use the speakers as bookshelf as sound great. Placing them on stands though does open up the sound nicely. My living room is modest sized and I am currently only listing in stereo for music. Speakers are open , clear, and rich. Still a decent amount of bass, though I will add a sub-woofer in the future, to round things out. I plan on buying the B&W stands from Crutchfield in the near future.

Pros: Amazing looking. Sound great.

Cons: Wish they came with stands.

Sweet

Crutchfield customer from Rapid City, SD on 9/17/2019

For a set of bookshelf speakers its hard to believe so much sound can come out. They are clean and clear. I love how open they are with the tweeters on top. Even my wife noticed.

Pros: Great looking. Outstanding vocals.

Cons: None
