  • Summary: I feel compelled to answer one of my own burning questions from when I bought these speakers: yes, a subwoofer does indeed improve the sound! I use the 8" sub from the same B&W series to get that extra punch (I think of it as "wetness") in pop-ish stuff and some modern big-band jazz. It really lifts the experience to nirvana! That said: excellent speakers with a wonderful deep bass, yet on the lean side.

  • Summary: For a long time I had owned Linn Keilidh floorstanders which in a few words I would describe as sophisticated, laid back floorstanders with a wide, impressive sound stage, very smooth and easy to listen for long hours. However, they were missing some enthusiasm, had rather weak mid range, and overall were not too much evolving.

  • Summary: I am a drummer and have been listening to many various types of music including classical, over the past 45 years. Having previously also owned the B&W 602s3 speakers, all I can say is that these speakers are mightily impressive. I bought the speakers and a Nad C355BEE amp a couple of months ago and have only felt that the speakers are now on their way to being fully run-in. From week to week, they really do sound better and better.

  • Summary: Fantastiska högtalare, galet nöjd. Bra bas, detaljrikt osv. Lyssnar mycket pÃ¥ Chris Cornell, Daft Punk, Maiden, The Cure, The Mission, mycket akustiskt osv Kör dessa med en gammal (2000) Sony STR-830, funkar klockrent, blir väl ännu bättre när jag byter till en bättre förstärkare :)

  • Summary: Nu efter tvÃ¥ veckor tycker jag de börjar lÃ¥ta lika bra som i butiken. Underbart mellanregister och diskant. Basen är bra för storleken, duger gott till mitt vardagsrum pÃ¥ 30 m2. Vid film kan det saknas lite botten men det kan en eventuell sub fixa. Jag rekommenderar att lyssna pÃ¥ dessa. Tänkte först köpa CM1 men dessa lät bättre enligt mig (dessutom billigare). Snygg finish ocksÃ¥.

  • Excerpt: Колонки звучат на столько хорошо, на сколько хорошую электронику вы используете с ними. Способны выдавать потрясающий, мощный, пульсирующий, в воздухе бас, при подключении к усилителю примерно от 90 вт. подключение би вайринг! Но при таком подключении падает информативность на верхах, по-этому стоит задуматься о кабелях с информативным верхом.
  • Pros: Бас, линейность, широкая сцена. Чистый звук.
  • Cons: Низкое тембровое разрешение на СЧ, почти нет эффекта присутствия. Тихую музыку слушать на них не намного интереснее, чем на музыкальном центре.
