    Excellent speakers!

    Got these speakers as an open box. Used them first with an old Onkyo surround receiver. They sounded quite good, especially when paired with my BIC F12 subwoofer. Mid range and bass were crisp and clear. Classical and Jazz music were reproduced faithfully with a 3D soundstage. However, high frequency stuff like cymbals etc. sounded just a bit strained. Not bad at all but a bit bright. This observation has been reported in other reviews on the web, especially for metal music. When I replaced the Onkyo receiver with a vintage NAD 2400 amplifier and 1300 pre amp, this all went away. These speakers need a really quality stereo amp/receiver to fulfill their potential. With the current setup of the CM1s, NAD components, and the BIC F12 sub, I am in music heaven. The speakers are really amazing and I am loving them!

    Our Magnolia rep was spot on when he suggested these B&W's. They sound like you're in a recording studio. Nice option to have the white color which blends well with our white cabinets. We're pretty excited to listen to music and watch tv, sports and movies. Highly suggest a Sub for extra bass.

    Hearing is very subjective, that said I have very good hearing, and these speakers were the best of all that I sampled at the Magnolia listening room at Best Buys. They handle power well, very low distortion, good high and mid range, have good bass for the size. Perfect when used with a subwoofer. A little pricey but worth the money. Nice cabinet finish and quality control is excellent. Enjoy!
