    Congratulation with you awards. TOO bad you dont produce a subwoofer for you CM9 speakers in wenge… piano black sucks!

    To the previous commentator. Lay back,close your eyes and listen.Then the colour will not matter

  • stewart johnstone says:

    No PV1 and no details on its replacement, really bad timing from you

  • Tim Fitzsimmons says:

    A floor standing bigger brother to the PM1, please!

  • Truls Håvard K. Miljeteig says:

    Congratulations an all awards! Pleased to see that the CM9’s still winning prizes! I never regretted buying mine! And with the CM8 as rear speakers, I’m really pleased with my home cinema! Love your Cm series, and won’t change them until I can get money and permission from the mrs’s to buy the pleasurable 803D! Keep up the good work!

  • Truls Håvard K. Miljeteig says:

    Btw, mine are gloss black, very stilish:) But the wenge is very pretty in the right setting…

  • Michael V. says:

    Please tell me a little more, I have the DM602 S3 speakers. The performances of them are they good & what to you have that’s better and outstanding?

    The model number?


  • Bowers and Wilkins says:

    Dear Michael,

    Consider the 685’s being a side-step improvement, further more, the CM5’s offering a more mature accurate sound.

    Hope this helps,
    Kind regards

  • Mikael N says:

    Great work. Love B&W speakers!

  • Adriano says:

    Congratulations for well deserved awards. I am a big fan of B&W speakers and have enjoyed my 804D.

    Would the 805D work well as a center speaker instead of HTM4?

    Thank you!

  • Bowers and Wilkins says:

    Dear Adriano,

    A single 805 Diamond can work well for centre channel duties if height is of no issue, however would be considered to err on the tall side for some, therefore the HTM4 Diamond is usually installed as its height is less.

    Hope this helps,
    Kind regards
