I got to listen to the 702S2's last night at an event my dealer held. The 705's were also on display in the room. I must admit, those are a some very impressive speakers to hear. I didn't get a chance to sit near enough to center so I could gauge imaging and soundstage, but did get a good sense of its clean bass output and tweeter response. I think the off-axis performance is better than anything the previous CM series could do with a similar tweeter. These were piano black and a really good-looking speaker. Of course that's subjective and I have to admit that I truly hated the yellow Kevlar drivers. The Continuum mid driver is decidedly classier to my eyes.
The speakers were running off a very high end Luxman integrated amp, from a laptop. I didn't get a chance to ask about what DAC was being used despite getting to meet Mr. Patrick Butler. We spoke briefly for the first time, despite both of us being at previous events at the same dealer. While I was surprised the dealer's 802D3's were just sitting in a hallway next to the KEF Blade II's, I think I understand that if they were in use Patrick would have too much on his hands. Any dealer is going to sell 10x the number of 700 series as they will 800 series, and being new those 700 series are the current focus. They're going to do do really well with them!
