B&W 705 S2 Signature speakers in super rare Datuk Gloss finish which is simply astounding. I have yet to see a nicer or richer finish on a speaker.

These present and look almost new. You would need to inspect with a magnifier to find any blemishes.

Plus they come complete like the day they left the factory including all packing materials, grills, and paperwork. No stands are included as they were originally only available separately from B&W.

*Because of the gloss finish the speaker is super susceptible to scratching so please plan accordingly.

More from B&W:

705 Signature
Our most compact Tweeter-on-Top model gets the Signature treatment.

Crafted. Honed. Perfected.
Featuring the Continuum cone and Carbon Dome, this compact stand-mount loudspeaker is available in a choice of exclusive finishes and features optimized crossovers, making it worthy of the Signature nameplate.

Optimized tweeter housing
Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the Solid Body Tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized housing that is exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.

Sharper detail
Carbon Dome tweeters are purpose-built for the 700 Series and deliver pinpoint imaging accuracy and detailed insight into your music.

Truly amazing sound
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone midrange driver.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Speakers:

Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.

After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.
