Bowers & Wilkins CM8 Series 2 Floorstanding Speakers - One Pair ONLY - Satin White - Ex-Display
Beautiful sound With the new CM Series, beauty is so much more than skin deep. Of course, with their clean lines, high-quality finishes and lack of superfluous detail, these are some of the most elegant speakers we’ve ever built. But look beneath the surface, and you’ll find technologies that set new standards for acoustic performance in the home, revealing unprecedented levels of musical detail and nuance for speakers of this class. You won’t believe how beautiful your music can sound.
Design and craftsmanship As with a musical instrument, the sound of a speaker depends partly on the quality of its materials, and the care that went into its design and construction. The CM Series’ cabinets are made using high-quality materials such as real wood veneers, while concealed screw fixings preserve a clean, uncluttered façade. These design features aren’t just for show: solid cabinet construction and unbroken surfaces all contribute to a sound that’s free of resonance and reflection.
CM Series range From Hi-Fi stereo to home theatre, and from the largest reception rooms to the smallest home offices – whatever your listening requirements, you’ll be sure to find CM Series speakers to suit. With three standmounters, three floorstanders, two centre speakers and a subwoofer in the range, it’s the most comprehensive collection we’ve yet produced.
Home Theatre If you’re looking to enhance your home entertainment experience with a high-quality home theatre speaker set-up, the CM Series will be happy to oblige. We offer two center channel speakers and a powerful subwoofer.
CM Series technology The new CM Series will transform your enjoyment of music, revealing all the depth and detail that ordinary speakers miss. That’s thanks to audiophile design innovations originally pioneered for our flagship 800 Series Diamond reference speakers, combined with new technologies developed especially for the range.
CM8 is the most room-friendly floorstander in the range: a speaker with a slimmed-down profile designed to fit comfortably into most living rooms. Despite its leaner proportions, the CM8 delivers amazing clarity, detail and realism due to technologies it shares with its larger siblings, such as an FST midrange and Decoupled Double Dome tweeter.
