The CM5s are deeply impressive in parts, but lack the all-round excellence to worry the class leaders

Surprising bass power for size; goes loud with ease; lots of detail; impressive speed and dynamics

High frequencies lack refinement; mid and treble sound insubstantial; fussy about stands

B&W CM5 Loudspeakers Review and Test


B&W's CM5s are quality speakers in every sense of the word. The pedigree is exceptional, the engineering is outstanding, the workmanship impeccable, and the sound quality is everything you could want from a pair of small stand-mount speakers… and more…

Thank you for searching out Australian HI-FI Magazine’s equipment review and laboratory test of the B&W CM5 Loudspeakers originally published in Australian Hi-Fi Magazine, March/April 2011 (Volume 42 Number 2).
