Bowers and Wilkins intros four new CM-series speakers

Steven Kim

Bowers and Wilkins is one of those venerable speaker brands that always gets mentioned when people want to get into high-end speakers (how much only depends on budget), and the company has brought out four new models to its CM-series that sits between its 600 and 800-series lineups. The CM9 ($1,500 each, floorstanding) and CM5 ($750 each, stand-mount) speakers share their 25-mm aluminum tweeter and 165-mm Kevlar drivers with the CM Center 2 ($1,250) model to give you that seamless sonic match across the front, and the CM9 adds in a 150-mm Kevlar midrange to its cabinet as well. Audio purity is all well and good, but HT fun is all what happens when you turn the ASW 10CM subwoofer ($1,500) to eleven -- the 25-cm paper/Kevlar driver backed by 500-Watts should be able to get things moving. These new models should be available in October in gloss black, Rosenut and that trendy Wengé finish making the rounds.
