Bowers & Wilkins CM8 Loudspeaker Now Shipping

Posted Wed Dec 8, 2010 at 11:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

The more affordable version of the company's flagship speaker is available now from dealers.

The Bowers & Wilkins CM9 is an incredibly impressive floorstanding loudspeaker, but as a flagship product for a high end speaker company it's out of the price range of most. The CM8 is a less costly and more compact version designed to offer impressive sound without breaking the bank.

It boasts the same one inch aluminum dome tweeter as the CM9, and still uses Nautilus technology to provide you with color-free treble.

The biggest difference in the CM8 is that it drops the 6.5 inch drivers of the flagship, instead opting for five inch drivers. Thanks to a bit of proprietary technology from B&W, those will still get you down to 43Hz.

The B&W CM8 is available now, at $1,100 each.
