B&W CM8

What Hi-Fi?
11 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Bowers & Wilkins claims the FST drivers in its elegant CM8 floorstanders allow for ‘the cleanest midrange performance in the business'. FST stands for Fixed Suspension Transducer and relates to the bright yellow Kevlar cone only having the smallest of surrounds. The idea is that the surround damps the cone optimally to produce the purest possible sound.
  • Pros: Striking looks, amazing midrange, punchy, weighty bass, detailed treble
  • Cons: Lack of cohesion, requires careful partnering with electronics

17 October 2011
  • Excerpt: CM8 er en krympet version af topmodellen CM9, som vi kårede til årets højttaler i 2009. Arvtageren CM7 har beholdt den samme metaldiskant og det velkendte 5” mellemtoneelement i kevlar, mens 7-tommers bassen fra CM7 er byttet ud med dobbelte 5-tommere. Målet hermed har været at lave højttalere, som er nemme at placere og optager lidt plads.

  • Summary: De elegante CM8 fra Bowers & Wilkins er noe av det lekreste vi har sett – og hørt - på lenge. B&W CM8 er etter vår mening en innertier for deg som leter etter en pen og kompakt gulvhøyttaler med overbevisende lydkvalitet.

Rotel RCX-1500 met B&W CM8 luidsprekers

hifi.nl
28 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Bowers & Wilkins en Rotel horen bij elkaar. Niet alleen omdat de B&W Group Ltd. eigenaar is van het Japanse merk, maar ook omdat het in 1967 opgerichte familiebedrijf een klankmatige signatuur heeft die goed past bij die van het Britse luidsprekermerk. Vandaar ook dat de importeur twee noviteiten (van elk merk één) als set in de luisterruimte van HiFi.nl neerzette voor een recensie. Waarvan akte...
