Beautiful B&W Nautilus
HTM2 Center Channel Speaker in Black Ash.
This center channel
speaker has been meticulously maintained and is in near perfect condition, no
scratches or marks anywhere. Humidity controlled and smoke-free environment its
entire life. I do not have the original packaging and box, but it will be professionally
double boxed for shipping.
This is a two-way design,
with a 6.5 inch woven Kevlar® bass/midrange unit
complementing the free mounted aluminum dome tweeter. The speaker is
magnetically shielded to offer an exceptional audio and visual experience in home
cinema installations. See my other ad
for a pair of matching Nautilus 805's for a killer home theater system.
review of this excellent center channel (http://hometheaterhifi.com/volume_6_4/b&w-nautilus-htm2-speaker-12-99.html):
The overall performance of
the HTM2 is very accurate. Voices sounded smooth, which is critical for a
center channel speaker, rather than chesty which usually muddies up male
dialogue. . . . dialogue sounded clean,
not overly heavy or boomy and most importantly, it was never harsh. . . The
speaker performed admirably, adding none of the usual bass that clumps up
Though the HTM2 does have
its share of bass output, with a frequency response rating of -3 dB at 49 Hz,
and usable bass output to 38 Hz, it could hold its own as a large (full range)
speaker . . . At the higher end of the frequency response, the treble was
smooth, rolling off around 19 kHz to -3 dB at 22 kHz. . . . I was expecting to hear some jagged treble
as the HTM2 uses a metal tweeter, but to my surprise, the high end was very
soft. . . . In fact, I had a hard time
detecting any distortion even at volume levels in excess of 100 dB. The off-axis
response was the best I have ever heard, even from extreme wide positions. People sitting on the floor to the far right
will hear the same thing as being heard from the sweet spot. And since some of us don't have the luxury of
a professional installation, off-axis response is crucial to any amateur home
