With its larger bass/midrange unit, the 706 S2 delivers a sound that feels fully formed and entirely true to life, with outstanding detail, spaciousness and musical insight into recordings.

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 Aramid fiber. Its woven, coated material provides highly controlled break-up, resulting in a more open, neutral midrange.

Recommended amplifier: ARCAM SA20 (Class G)

Why ARCAM Class G? Like a hybrid car engine, Class G implements multiple power supplied rather than just a single supply. If a dynamic signal is received that goes beyond the capability of this first power supply, the secondary supply is gradually brought in up to full rated power output as required. This gives a very efficient design as additional power is only used when required, much like a turbo-charger.
