When i was in oversea I used to own a pairs of 602 S3 powered by Rotel RSX 1056. I then demoed a pair of CM1 using the same receiver and felt that, despite less efficient, CM1's sound is more refined than 602 S3, especially in high frequency. Now back in Malaysia, i am starting from zero again. Looking for 685 in the next year or so...

i reckon the 685 will be around rm2.8k..a friend of mine bought it rm2.2k (brand new) sometime last year. He was given special price due to opening day of the shop (if I'm not mistaken)..I've sold my HTM62  for only RM1k (still in excellent condition)...the new price for this center should be around RM1.8k -RM2k....hiway laser is selling B&W ...try over there...gud luck bro...hope this info will help you a bit....cheers

You could save some money by using sea shipping. I am not sure about tax, but I know a shipping company in UK who provides door to door delivery and based on past my experience, most of the used item were delivered and reached Malaysia safely without any tax.

yup...delivery will include cost of shipping (by sea) + insurance of the item..5% of the value (depend of the shipping co if I'm not mistaken)..then you got to pay tax some more..... smile.gif smile.gif

I had just bought the B&W CM8 + CMC speakers. Currently I am using Pioneer 819 AV receiver. I wanted to upgrade the AV receiver, any good recommendation ?

Nice speakers! Any chance of you posting some pix of them and your current setup?

Some American CM users have used a receiver and power amp combo, apparently to great effect. This dude is using a midrange Onkyo with a planned upgrade with for a Rotel power amp. Emotiva amps apparently combine well with the CM series as well and I think one of the sifu forumers is offloading his XPA3. Maybe you can grab tat to combine with your 819 for now?

Other Brit users combine a Pioneer LX83/82s with their CMs, see below:

You got cherry or black? Pioneer should to be a fine choice, but most overseas forumers eventually try to pair a power amp somewhere down the road. You considered the Arcam AVR500 Experts uses to demo their CMs?

congrats bro....nice choice for the amp and speakers....but would be better if you could audition it first with your speakers...as for myself, I have auditioned it with pioneer (entry level but modded with preout + 10 channel DIY power amp) and Marantz SR6003 + Rotel 1075 ( for front + center speaker).... one sure thing I can say is that this speaker really need a good amp to bring out the true meaning of the brand.... I only use Denon 1911 on which is too damn under power to drive the speakers but it still produce a nice sound for me.....its like having a good sports car but only drive in residential area.....just my 2 cents....cheers..
