CM8 S2

Floor Standing Speaker


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.

Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2 earns the Editor's Choice award from PC Mag

PC Mag tried out the Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2 and awarded these headphones with the Editor's Choice distinction. 

"They may look identical, but B&W upgraded the P5's drivers to units based on the more expensive P7 model. Because of this, they're both extremely comfortable and output gorgeous audio with deep, rich lows and excellent definition in the highs."
