Another crowd pleaser is the new CM10 from B&W. This model is a crossover between their luxury 800 Diamond series and the CM series, offering technology from both.
The tapered tweeter is mounted on top of the cabinet like the 800 Series. When we first heard these, we thought” “Hmm.., it might be time to put new tech into the 800 Series – these guys are really close!” At $3995 per pair they pack in lots of technology from the Steyning UK team. The sound is typical B&W, very smooth and extended on both ends. Bass response from multiple small low frequency drivers is very fast. Like the Triton 7, the CM10s are also easy to drive with a modest receiver, yet spring to life with more robust power.
