B&W CM10 Floor-Standing Speakers


Introduction to the B&W CM10 Speakers

B&W 601S2s were the first loudspeaker I ever bought for myself. Charged on a credit card in college, and beyond what I should have spent, they wound up saving me hundreds of dollars in the long run. With their intoxicating sound, far beyond anything I'd owned before, I'd spend hours listening to them. With a 300-disc CD changer and a La-Z-Boy recliner, many nights and weekends were spent listening to albums uninterrupted.

While those B&Ws were left behind many upgrades ago, their memory has remained strong. No matter what speaker I have owned since there is a little yearning in my mind for that B&W sound. As soon as the new CM10 tower speaker was introduced, I set out to spend some quality time with it and return to where the audiophile in me was born. Go to Page 2: Design And Setup
