BELOW BOOK VALUE.  B&W CM5 Rosenut.  Sonically 9/10, excellent sound, typical of B&W.  Drivers in like-new, perfect condition.  Price includes:  Express/PayPal fees, shipping, and insurance.  I'm the 2nd owner, purchased in 2014.  7/10 on Audiogon's condition scale.  Drivers are 9/10 perfect, one speaker has a dinged corner at the top left, another speaker has dinged top right edge, bought them this way.  See detailed photos.  Hard to see from > 2 feet away.  Rosenut finish.  While I do not have the original box, they are very well packaged in a nice Elac box.  I have over a decade of 100% positive feedback and am a very fast shipper.

On a bookshelf or a speaker stand, the CM5 will give you a wonderfully big, expansive sound even if you don’t have the floorspace to match. 

It’s a slightly larger speaker than its sibling the CM1, with even higher sensitivity and power handling, and better bass extension. It partners a sizable 165mm Kevlar® cone bass/midrange driver with a NautilusTM tube-loaded aluminum dome tweeter, capable of keeping high frequencies crisp and sharp all the way up to 50kHz and beyond. 

The quality of CM Series drive units has made it possible to use minimalist crossovers throughout the whole range. The resulting gentle transition between drivers avoids the unnaturally rapid changes in dispersion that bedevil more complex designs, while the high quality components, carefully chosen after exhaustive listening tests, ensure that as little as possible gets between you and the sound of the original recording. 

All CM Series speakers come with aluminum driver trims. Grilles attach magnetically, so there are no unsightly grille-mounting features to spoil the clean lines of the speaker’s façade. For the finish, you can choose either one of two real-wood veneers in Rosenut or Wengé, or a highly polished gloss black.
