sorry if this isn't the place to start asking a new question, but i need a quick response from people who know their BWs.
I bought a new pair of CM8's earlier this year, not knowing the series would be updated, but having the intention to build a surround with cm1's and CM 2 Centre over the years, as my budget would let me.
Now i'm practically obliged to find my surround speakers at this moment before i can't find them anywhere. The biggest issue being that i bought Wenge colour and that's gone now..
These are my dealer's propositions for my rear speakers:
1. his CM1 demo pair for 825 dollars, instead of 1125 dollars. (i'm using euro to dollar conversion here). Of course i would also have to buy a speaker standard (not so cheap as far as i know) to put them on. Also, i don't like the look of most speaker standards.
2. his CM8 demo pair, the same as i use for my fronts, for 1607 dollars instead of 2315 dollars. This seems incredibly overkill to me to also use CM8's for rear speakers (budget wise and "space"wise). But it would look better to my eyes than small speakers on a standard. And it's a killer discount isn't it?
Also, if i choose option 2, he offered to replace - FOR FREE - the dented tweeter of one of my two CM8's i already have.
I'm leaning to option 2 here, thoughts?
