Ex-Display CM Centre in gloss black with all original accessories, 5 year warranty and box

Elegant and yet hugely capable in a home cinema setting, the B&W CM Centre utilises curtting edge B&W drive unit technology trickled down from the top-of-the-line 800 series.

Like its CM1 mini-monitor sibling, the B&W CM Centre speaker borrows design and development features from the 800 Series 805S and similarly shares that model's remarkable musical ability, a key aspect of the CM Centre. While it undoubtedly plays the AV centre channel role to perfection, the B&W CM Centre also extends the CM1's emphasis on accurate, dynamic and revealing music reproduction.

Working together, theB&W CM Centre and B&W CM1 have few equals when it comes to compact multi-channel systems that make music as adeptly as they reproduce home theatre audio.

The B&W CM Centre's symmetrically arranged driver line-up of twin Kevlar cone bass/midrange units and a Nautilus tube-loaded aluminium tweeter are integrated by a minimalist, ear-tuned, first order network made possible by the remarkably wide bandwidth of the drivers.

The B&W CM Centre makes music as a seamless, cohesive whole, and displays a striking ability to resolve fine detail.

Home theatre centre channel speakers need surprising reserves of low frequency power and bandwidth, despite its compact size the B&W CM Centre delivers on both. Flowport technology to minimise turbulence, and twin bass drivers featuring magnet system technology that reduces distortion, mean that B&W CM Centre bass is deep, fast, tuneful and always ready to give more. An optional port sleeve that modifies the low frequency response shape allows positioning of the speaker right up close to walls without compromise.

The B&W CM Centre cabinet is a classically manufactured and exquisitely veneered or lacquered expression of the cabinet makers art and provides a visually understated and mechanically rigid enclosure for the drivers. Real wood finishes in Wenge, Rosenut or piano black lacquer are available. And removing the magnetically attached black or dark grey fabric grille to view the drivers reveals no unsightly grille mounting features. Shelf, wall bracket or furniture mounting is perfectly feasible for the B&W CM Centre but a matching floor-stand, the FS/CM 700, is available and provides optimal performance.
