B & W CM5

Often also HiFi old-timers use still the term “Shelf boxes” – but the noble compact today sound usually don’t fit between books: with free installation and stable stand it sounds worlds better. Long gone are the days where, mini monitors satisfied were only silent listeners and bass Denigrators, – the CM 5 B & W is adult and dynamically.

  1. B & W CM5
  2. Data sheet

If there is a speaker series that the high-end world sustainably, changed then the 800 or Nautilus series by Bowers_ & _Wilkins. Their secret star is, therefore not only Stewart & _W fans were looking forward from point of view of the Newsroom, the compact box 805 in the strongest terms, than the English before pointing manufacturer end announced last year of the new CM 5 Although is clad in the conventional rectangular shape, concept and vote here but to come close to the miracle box like no other. Like the round-shaped sister, she is also a classical two-way concept with high separation (4 kHz) and especially flat, real time filtering.
Such an approach goes only if the chassis are world class – or distortions threaten especially from the tweeter. Stewart & _W uses the Nautilus 800 series here and bought a tube housing tapered rear that should completely eliminate harmful resonances of high-quality aluminium dome. Of 17 low-midrange driver on the other hand has a very flexible, stroke-happy beading for dynamic bass, on the other hand a woven diaphragm of Kevlar to radiate in the upper MIDs as evenly as possible to be able to.
All optical differences despite the 805 and the CM 5 in the listening room were hard to tell apart. Their Sonic panoramas were Holst’s “Planets” (Russell Davies, Chesky) so far that the editors in day dreams spontaneously thought of an Open-Air performance of the work. This small miracle accomplished the new without savings on the sound color fidelity or the clarity in the expression. Possibly a touch more resolution and shine the 805 to represent managed, the CM 5 conjured up for it at Runrigs “A Dhinnse na Firinn” (“In Concert”, Zounds-Gold CD) the more dynamic and more contoured in the bass sound.
Who sounds like long relaxed and still seeks a high definition box, hardly passes in this class to the 5 CM: at her silky sound picture you forget smooth, how many hours you have heard and enjoyed.
