I think the B&W S2 series is going to be more accurate and revealing than the Sonus Faber, but I agree that those S2 carbon tweeters have a slightly hard edge to the sound. The Sonus Faber is going to be much more pleasing to listen to, but are not as high resolution or revealing. It seems that you want a tower speaker. If you can stretch your budget or get used, maybe look at the 805 D3 bookshelves. The D3 diamond tweeters are absolutely excellent, and the 805 can actually put out some pretty respectable bass.
Never did I think I would own Bowers speakers. I picked up the 702 S2 two weeks ago. They are NOT bright and they are not edgy.
Im really quite happy with them early in. And they are outstanding imagers. I’ve moved them out of their dedicated spots to get to the back of my gear and still get a great center image. When placed back they do a really great job imaging center and front.
i didn’t plan on these. I actually went to audition some Martin Logan’s and listened to them while there. I instantly thought they sounded great with the music I like to audition.
They are lookers too if that matters. In white, it’s matte. Looks incredible.
I’m running them on Simaudio mono blocks. NAD Masters source gear for stereo. Arcam for HT.
Really nice speakers and the imaging has shocked me the most. Not sure how they can be placed the way I’ve had them to do set-up in my rack and still get that insane imaging.
Ive owned Dynaudio, KEF, Sonus Faber etc
