Bowers & Wilkins M-1 Compact Speaker and PV1D Sub Preview


If you are looking for small speakers not because you can't afford larger ones but because you don't have the space, the B&W M-1 compact speakers and PV1D subwoofer should definitely be on your list.

The M-1 speakers will run you $250 a pop and the PV1D sub another $1700. For the B&W name, a sub-$3000 5.1 system is pretty reasonable. If you are looking for small speakers, not because you can't afford larger ones, but because you don't have the...

Bowers & Wilkins M-1 Mini Theater 20 Speaker System

Excellent sound from these unobtrusive speakers


I use a pair of these speakers for the rear sound in a 5.0 surround sound system. The sound is very clear and well-defined in the Blu-ray films we watch. The white paint and light aluminum colors fit our room décor well. Highly recommended..

Excellent Speaker for Space Constrained Areas


Though they weren't cheap, I purchased 3 of these for my home theater system - L, R, and Center. I paired them with a Klipsch SW311 sub. Sound quality is excellent and far superior to TV speakers. We considered a sound bar but ultimately went with the...
