    Hey All, I have a 5.1 B&W CM9 setup with Towers in the front / bookshelf's in the rear. Do I need a dedicated amp? I have been using my RX-Z7 Yamaha receiver which supplies 140 watts per channel, but I wanted to know if I would see a big increase in quality with an Amp. Thanks!
  2. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I have a 5.1 system comprised of B & W cm9's , cm series surround and a Yamaha rx-v863 avr. I am upgrading to separates for more power. I was considering Marantz mm7055 amp and related pre amp. But a friend recommended the Yamaha mx-a5000. The Yamaha is twice the price and amp. Is it twice as...

  4. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    So I've finally decided that I want to go with a pair of Bowers and Wilkins CM10 speakers. Currently I am running CM9 speakers with a Yamaha Aventage RX-A3010. I wanted to go with a new amplifier and pre-amp instead of using an AVR. My system is probably used for 90% music and 10% theater. I...

     I listened to B&W Cm9s and 10s. 10s did sound richer and fuller but they were considerably brighter than the 9. I would still consider the 9's to be bright. Would you agree with this assessment, probably having listened to many more speakers than i have?  Can you recommend any brands/models...

     A week ago I demoed these speakers for a good hour and compared them to BW CM9. They both sounded terrific. The electrostats though you have to sit down rather than stand to be in the sweet spot. The difference is huge, when standing you only hear 50% of the sound. I wonder if this is a best...

    thoughts and reviews please. i really like the CM9's, and would say to compare it to the R700. i have DEMOED all the CM series and they are very tight and crisp sounding speaker. i have not heard any KEF speakers but the look very well built and from what i hear they are VERY nice sounding...

    Hi, I have almost decided to pick the B&W CM9, the only thing that is holding me back (beside the price) is the room size. Right now I have a small living room, so I am concerned about the CM9 not performing good due to the room size. In a future I will probably move to a bigger place. One...

    Hi guys. Some of you may be familiar with my current speaker-quest to find some great speakers. I've been looking at B&W CM9s, CM10s, 804s, and I've been intrigued by reviews of KEFs and Aperion Verus Grands. About 10 years ago, when I got out of the home theater game... I had NHT 3.3s as...

    Hi All, So I'm going to be building a home theater from scratch pretty soon. I recently auditioned the B&W CM9 speakers at Best Buy (the best speakers in Magnolia room), driven by the Denon X4000 receiver, and I really liked the B&Ws. I liked the receiver too. I'm pretty sure I'd be happy...

    I was reading a review lately of a B&W speaker, I believe it was the CM9 speaker. The reviewer stated that the speakers were a good sounding speaker, and a great value. He also stated that they were really good if you liked the "B&W sound". Just what exactly, was he referring to ?

    I have a B&W CM9 powered by Anthem MRX 700. I was in a condo before and my set up was a little bit cramp (pic below). When I moved to a bigger place, I noticed the volume is louder compared when I was in a condo, like 5 db louder. The condo had an 8 foot ceiling and the new place is at least...

    Hello gentleman, I am currently running a 2.0 home theater system and just purchased a center channel. I will be picking it up tomorrow. Understanding that it is a bit late to ask this question but before I go through with the setup I wanted to ask before hand to see if I should be prepared...

    I am ready to build my first 2 channel system for music only. I'm pretty well set on getting B&W CM9s. As good as the low end performance is on these speakers, I'm a bass nut and won't just be playing jazz and classical on these suckers. Anyway there are a million threads on how to integrate a...
