    I love this center speaker! it sounds awesome at first i was nervous about spending the extra money with the CM series as to the 600 series! after i listened to both i had no reason not to go with the CM center channel! it has great sound, its a beautiful piece that sits in the middle of the room! not to mention is sounds really good music and movies! if you take off the cover then your looking at the amazing design bowers and wilkins left for people. this combined with the other CM series speakers makes my room sound amazing! the quality of the tweeters and the speakers themself! are amazing! Love this center channel!

    I heard the demo in the store and ended up buying the total package from BW. After initial tweaking of the settings this has proved to be well worth the investment. We really like the matte white version. It's clean, modern and the sound is awesome. My living room has 23' ceilings and open concept on 2 sides. Plenty of power and sound to handle the room.

    We selected B&W's CM Center S2 speaker to replace our old Polk center speaker and can now actually hear the actors speaking in movies and TV shows clearly and unmuffled. While this speaker was very pricy, we are quite happy with our choice as it is a solid perfomer and paired nicely with our B&W CM8 loudspeaker system. The piano black case is beautiful and well built - no speaker case vibration or crackling noises.

    I always want to have a nice center speaker for my family room. I'd listened this brand B&W speakers at my friends house and they sound absolutely fantastic. I bought this center speaker at BestBuy at an open box table with a good discount. I asked a sale person at BB for a sound test of this speaker in Magnolia room and it sounded very good to me. I have not hook it up yet but I trust B&W brand.

    So so for the money

    I expected a lot better from a mid level priced speaker. While most movies sound okay, the soundstage is far from where I'd like it to be at. Maybe given some more time and playing with my eq settings I will have a better ratting for this speaker. As of now I'd consider it to be mediocre at best. My RC-64 II that I have in the living room makes this speaker seem like a old boom box speaker from the 80s

    The CM Centre S2 is an excellent speaker for the money. Not quite as hard hitting as the next step in the Bowers & Wilkins line, but not as expensive either. I decided to go with this as it was more than efficient to provide nice crisp sound in my family room. Unless you live in a super sized mansion, this speaker should serve you well.

    A great center channel is worth it's weight in gold for movies. It can mean all the difference. This is a great speaker when matched up to the right front speakers!! My CM8's work well. Great test is the latest Star Wars movie, very busy sound track which can show off your system. It is a great center that replace my Snell center channel.

    I have the B&W 685 S2 speakers in my TV room and this speaker is a much better match to them than my Polk center channel speaker. I haven't balanced the system yet but already I have noticed a big improvement with TV dialog and a fuller sound with movies. It's a bit expensive but a good speaker.
