As I mentioned here before, my BDI Rack can't receive the CMC2, I tried adapting the rack by lowering the middle shelf but my carpenter said that would indeed screw the rack apart. I was stuck with a CMC..

So, I talked to my local B&W Dealer and he had a CMC S1 for a very good price... I asked him if I could demo it in my system (Yamaha CX A5000 PrePro and MX A5000 amp). After some paperwork, he lent me the CMC for a day... like many said, the sound was meh. The voice sounded a little better than my previous Monitor Audio Silver RX Centre but I also had to crank the volume way too hot to avoid my CM10 S2 for drowning it. Overall quite mediocre.

Finally I travelled to Chicago 3 weeks ago and I took a leap of faith and got the CMC S2...

WOW.

The sound of the center, right out of the box, was night and day compared to the Monitor Audio and to the CMC S1. With this one, I do not have to crank the volume leve too much and it plays very well with my existing CM10 S2.
I can only wonder how good the CMC2 S2 must sound.

Still, Im happy with my current configuration which includes:

Yamaha CX A5000 Pre/Pro
Yamaha MX A500 Amp
Oppo BDP 103
Project Carbon Debut with Ortofon Red Cartridge
B&W CM10 S2 front
B&W CMC S2 center
B&W CM5 rear surround
Monitor Audio Bipolar RX Silver Surround
Definitive Tech x2 Prosub 1000 (L&R)

Happy to hear opinions on what to place for side surrounds instead of the MA.
The towers look nice. I am thinking about replacing my Paradigm Signature 2v3's for some CM10's. Not sure how the CM10ls will compare to my Sig2's. This will be in a smaller bedroom.

I do not think I am ready to send 4k+, out of the country. Thank you... it would be cool to see if there is any audible change in sound.

Does anyone have the box that their CM10 speakers came in? I was planning on using my bonus to upgrade my front speakers to CM10S2. I have a 2 door Jeep Wrangler and I'm not sure if the boxs would fit. I assume each speaker comes in a separate box. If anyone can go into their basement and measure the box and give me the dimensions, I would greatly appreciate it. Otherwise I have to borrow a neighbors pick up truck.

What's interesting is he said he could still get brand new ones and the can still make them. Cost $9,000.00 each. I thought they were discontinued? Hmmmm.

Hmmm, indeed. Very interesting.


Patrick, would you please shed some light on this? Is this a case of a misinformed dealer or has something changed recently with respect to the discontinued HTM1D? You have certainly made it clear in posts here that B&W had absolutely zero interest in doing a speaker like this again and you have never given any indication it could be custom ordered.


Given how bad I would like one in current D2 spec I would gladly find a way of handling the $9,000.

I suggest you go listen to the CM10s before making the swap. Preferably in the same room as your S2s. I've got a pair of S2s and listening to additional speakers has just made me appreciate them even more.

I do like my Sig2's Had them 2 years and that is a record for me as i go thru speakers every few months. I had a pair of older Klipsch RF7's before tryng the Millenia 1's, then the Studio10's and now the Sig2'. Just kinda in the mood for some towers again and wanted to try a new brand. This is for a small bedroom as seen in my sig. The RF7's sure had the slam, but were bright and harsh to me. So i was thinking some new CM10's or maybe some new RF7ll's.

My boxes are roughly 45.5" high by 13.5" wide by 18.25" deep and yes it is one speaker per box.

i have cm10s (NOT cm10 S2) so it is possible the S2 boxes are larger but here are the specs

45.5" height
18.5" depth
13.5" width

to be safe I would use 46" x 19" x 14"

hope that helps

My Current 5.2 Setup - for now....
B&W CM10s (FLR), CMC2, CM5 x2 (SLR)
Dual SVS SB2000s

Rack and Display:
Marantz SR7009, Marantz UD7007, T-PC50st60
