    I Love these speakers but keep in mind ...

    Posted .

    I love these speakers. They are gorgeous and compact. Their ability to render the highs is exceptional. The drawback is that they don't do much bass and I would deduct a half star if I could do that because of this. I knew this going in however and paired it with an SVS sub specifically which is just incredible at rendering a wide range of all frequencies in the low end so it doesn't just go "boom boom". I set the receiver at LFE+Main for the sub and set the low pass filter near the SVS's upper range at 220. The result? It puts a big smile on my face every time I power up!

    Bought as open box...said "excellent" but not quite. Visible marks...but sounds fantastic! Really astonishing sound, especially considering how small these speakers really are.

    Bought these speakers after listening to a LOT of different ones at the Best Buy store. Even though they're small, they have BIG sound. They're a little pricey, but I think they'll last the rest of our lives, then someone else can enjoy them for many more years.

    Because of these speakers, I can enjoy music in a way that I have never heard it from a recording. I have floor standing Bowers and Wilkins speakers, but this pair provide the "icing on the cake" that I have been missing for so many years. Definitely keepers for life.

    best bookshelf speaker at this price point

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Size, Sound quality, Space

    Started with the Elac UB5 and let me just say if you do not have a subwoofer this speaker really packs a punch. It fills a room with a wall of sound and some nice warm bass for a speaker of its size. However, the highs suffer from dryness some might say "softness" and some distortion at moderate listening levels. Enter the 700's at more than twice the price. Of course they should sound better and they do. With percussion, saxophones and piano the UB5 is not even in the discussion. Nuanced but with size defying dynamics these little guys play loud and clean. Amen.

    overkill for my desk set up but I am amazed on the clarity and imaging of these mid sized speakers! I’m currently powering it with a Rotel A12 partnered with a REL T7i sub woofer.

    I have waited to review these. I wanted to give myself time to get over the initial "new car smell" It may never happen! After a year, I'm still amazed by the sound that comes out of these. The clarity is ridiculous, the same old songs are somehow new again. Bottom line, my words cannot convey what your own ears will. If you're thinking about purchasing new speakers these will not disappoint.

    Mids

    The trouble is, I bought these to replace a pair of JBL 4400 studio monitors that had died, not being willing to pay the $4,000 or so in order to get comparable sound. An unfair standard, for sure. The bass and midrange out of these tiny speakers is remarkably good. The high-end, not so much. I had expected the opposite. I’ve kept these speakers, confident that they are at least as good as any others at this price.

    Sound quality

    Purchased a pair of the 707 s2 recently from best buy. I just can't say enough about these speakers. I have owned many speakers over the years. Most recently, a pair of B&W CM5 S1, and Paradigm Prestige 15B. These speakers are addicting. Cant wait to get home at night, sit back, and listen to theses. The highs are perfect. I thought the CM5's were a little on the bright side. the clarity and imagining amazing. Blown away. I've returned quite a few speakers over the years. Best Buy is not going to be getting these back.

    I just hooked these up today and really like the smooth detailed presentation. No problem driving these with the Naim XS3 integrated amp. It is great to be able to visit a local Magnolia and audition the speakers before buying. These are keepers.
