The 700 series rounds off the premium class in the Signature range. It combines the audio qualities of the larger models with sleek, elegant cabinets and a timeless visual appearance. The technical ingredients used are also of the finest variety: In addition to the legendary Hi-Res certified dual tweeter module, the speakers also feature ceramic/aluminum cones for the bass and mid-range frequencies.
The harmonics that are so important for the overall audio impression and are largely responsible for how we perceive a sound, also unfold in ranges above 20,000 Hz. This fact is taken into account by the dual tweeter system, which, in addition to a 30 mm tweeter, also incorporates a second 20 mm fmax dome tweeter in a specially configured aluminum front panel. The duo operates in harmony in the highest registers and is able to reproduce even the finest harmonic nuances, which has been certified by the Japan Audio Society with its Hi-Res seal of approval.
The cones used for the bass and mid-range frequencies are made of no less sophisticated composite material, namely an aluminum/ceramic combination. This combines low weight with maximum strength, as the materials exhibit different resonance frequencies and thus strengthen one another, regardless of the frequencies being reproduced. Non-magnetic die-cast aluminum speaker baskets secure the speakers and drive firmly in place, while the voice coil ventilation ensures a high load capacity. Of course, all of the speakers have been optimized using Klippel laser measurement technology.
A timeless exterior with the finest workmanship
The exterior of the Signature 700 series is perfectly processed, and is timeless and elegant at the same time. The sturdy MDF cabinet is internally braced in multiple locations to prevent any trace of disruptive vibrations. The baffle is screwed in place at six different positions. All of the speakers in the series - including the active subwoofer - are available in black and white. The baffle is executed in the finest high-gloss finish, while the cabinet is provided with a corresponding satin lacquer. This makes it resistant to damage. The removable fabric grille is secured in place with magnets, meaning there are no visible attachment points to disrupt the overall appearance. Resonance-absorbing rubber feet also ensure stoic calmness for the speakers.
Shelf speaker, floorstanding speaker, center and active subwoofer
The Signature 700 series is complete: With a shelf speaker, a floorstanding speaker, a large center speaker with a double 17 cm bass-midrange configuration and an active subwoofer, you are able to combine any system you desire - from a compact stereo system to a fully-fledged hi-fi system and a home cinema setup - so let the planning commence!
