Bowers & Wilkins have a long history of producing some of the finest speakers in the world. In recent years they have diverged into home theatre with great success, but they still produce some classic stereo speakers too. All their modern stereo speaker ranges have been designed to work within a home theatre system too, so whatever your need you should find a speaker to suit.

The B&W CM1 is part of the CM Series, Bowers & Wilkins mid range of stereo speakers. This range comprises of a choice of different floorstanding and stand mount speakers as well as two centre speakers and a subwoofer. You can build your own home theatre system from these components, or just use your own choice of speakers for stereo music.

This speaker is the smallest in this range, and as such is often used as a rear surround speaker in a home cinema setup using the CM Series. However, it is a capable stereo speaker in its own right and partners well with high quality amplifiers from the likes of Rotel, Cyrus and Denon. Because of its small size and the very attractive finishes it works really well as a bookshelf speaker, although best audio results will be from placing it on a speaker stand.

If you are using it as part of a cinema system, bear in mind you can create a very good compact system by using two pairs of these speakers along with the CM Centre speaker and the ASW10CM subwoofer. This is a great system - one of our favourites and has an outstanding sound quality considering the overall small size of the speakers.

Bowers & Wilkins make a stand for this speaker (pictured in our photos above) called the FS700/CM speaker stands. You can of course use your own choice of stand as well.
