Accurate, transparent,efficient sound imaging


Replaced my 30+ year old McIntosh XR6 4way speakers powered with Denon 100Rms amp. B&Ws running w/Elite THX surround amp of equal power. Initially, thought Macs had better low frequency w/ 12" woofer but after a few weeks of listening to a wide variety...

Bowers and Wilkins have always made fantastic speakers and these just follow suit. These speakers are my favorite speakers I've ever owned, and trust me, I've had plenty speakers under my roof. In my opinion these are the best speakers that are...

Consumer review by:

The CM9s look and sound great.


The B&W front stage with CM9s and the CMC2 is the foundation of a great HT experience. They sounded good with a 100w x 7 receiver but once they were connected to a separate 200 watt per channel amp, they really came alive! Though the woofers sound...

Very accurate and detailed sound

They are addictive. It's tough to leave my HT
