I agree, I think the CMC2 S2 and the CM9 S2 will be the accompaniment to my 1st gen CM5's. I don't think the CM6 is going to be $400 better, especially for a speaker that will eventually find it's way to surround duties. If they made a CMC3 with a tweeter on top, I might change my story. Then they would have 3 full systems to mix and match from. CM10, CM6, CMC3 all tweeter on top, CM9, CM5, CMC2 inboard tweeters, and CM8, CM1, CMC for smaller rooms or lower cost.

The new ones look too smooth and perhaps too generic. They almost look like KRK Rokit monitors now.
Just my opinion.
I agree the 1st gen seemed to have a more industrial design element. The newer version is too smooth and plain.
