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.

Stunning sound from a small speaker


The colors couldn't have matched my walls better. Aesthetics are perfect. When you crank up the volume the sound is way above my expectations. Do yourself a favor. Spend the money and by the BW complete set. Anything less is just, well... Less.

B&W M1


Great product thus far. I purchased two of these to be used as surround back speakers mounted in the corner of my living room. Although expensive relative to other products on the market, my research has led me to believe that the B&W brand is...
