Bowers & Wilkins CM1 Loudspeakers (Series 1)

Bowers & Wilkins CM1 Loudspeakers (Series 1)

Sorry, This product is no longer available



With a little help from Bowers and Wilkins, we've managed to get hold of the last few remaining unopened, unused gloss black CM1s! This is brand new stock of a now discontinued model, but includes the same 5 year warranty, documentation, accessories and original packaging. 

The CM1 from Bowers & Wilkins is the prestigious loudspeaker company's entry model within their mid-range CM series. The CM1 benefits from a 130mm bass/midrange driver cone, built from Kevlar; a light yet highly rigid material. This enables the loudspeaker to offer a more detailed and sonically accurate representation than that of lesser materials. The aluminium dome tweeter features Bowers & Wilkins' world-renowned Nautilus tube-loaded design, which when combined with the icon Kevlar cone, allows the CM1 to play music with an effortless response, while retaining a solid and impressive sound across the entirety of the frequency spectrum. 

The CM1 is not only a sonically superior loudspeaker, but also features a classy aesthetic and thanks to the multitude of finishes the speaker is available in, the CM1 is easily integrated with existing home décor. The grilles are attached via discrete magnets so no unsightly grille-mounting features are present to compromise the simple and sophisticated face of the cabinet. The available finishes of the CM1 include two real wooden veneers (rosenut or wenge), or a beautiful white lacquer, or a highly polished gloss black finish.
