Any B&W CM series (the floorstanders) user mind to share their thought?

I have been quite happy with my B&W 700 series but recently considering to relocate to Shanghai after study, very reluctant to sell of my beloved speakers actually, but due to high shipping cost and high import tax in China, i might end up having to sell them off and get a new set in Shanghai, but I am well aware that 700 series is discontinue.

Would not be happy with 600 series, so CM series would be at least something I would like to consider, which is also close to my budget but not sure about the performance if were to compare with B&W 700 series.

Any thought is absolutely welcome  notworthy.gif
Moving from 700 series it's best yous start thinking of the 800 series as the CM might be just a parallel move for you laugh.gif

Hello there,

The 704, 705 and HTM7.

Selling them off would be my very last decision (if I had to)  laugh.gif

In fact I might consider selling my 705 1st if I could get another pair of 704 to replace my surround  drool.gif
Are you still helping the "unlucky" folks in Malaysia to get some B&W stuff in UK??

Hi All B&W fans out there,

Just sharing about B&W PM1 bookshelf speakers here.[attachmentid=2943526]
Come and drop by to have a listen to the amazing PM1 speakers from Bowers and Wilkins. Technology such as "Carbon braced tweeter", "anti-resonance plug" is the latest from B&W famous University of Sound UK, promise a better audio reproduction coming out of a bookshelf speakers. Add with a beautiful Mocha Gloss finish, it looks good and also sound good.

Come drop by for a listen. Call us at 03-79568989 to set an appointment or email [email protected] for more details.

Great..hope to see these technologies in the 800 series soon..and by then do add dipoles models, preferably switchable.

Frankly, i dont give a sh*t if the tweeter is made from the rarest of the rarest earth materials or from furthest outer space alien technologies so long it sounds damn good for the money. After all, if these rare materials are really in significant quantities, then the speakers should be sold from the goldsmith shops instead and TEG needs to get at least a few heavily armored vehicles standing by at the shop for any unwanted robbery or for any other shops that carry them laugh.gif

No offence to B&W nor TEG but merely a joke instead, if it's a dry one and keep up the good work, B&W Group.
