I don't like the front face of the new CM bookshelf speakers. The previous version with the overlapping circles and the little bolts around the ring had a high-tech, rugged, yet extremely classy look.

The new ones look too smooth and perhaps too generic. They almost look like KRK Rokit monitors now.

Just my opinion.

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.

I agree the 1st gen seemed to have a more industrial design element. The newer version is too smooth and plain.

Of course. Reviews just give you a general idea.
