Fantastic sounding compact monitor provided with B&W Nautilus technology, made of pristine Red-Ash

Brand: B&W
Type: Set of Speakers
Condition: Like New

Contents of the lot:

A set of B & W (Bowers and Wilkins) type: CDM 1
In as good as new condition.
Only one of both fronts has some fraying (photo 18).
With Manual and B&W flyer as well as all photos and scans on CD-Rom.
Wire bridges for single-wire connection.

The CDM 1 was a big success at its introduction in 1995.
The global trade press was delighted about this miraculous sound in such a compact housing for such a fair price.
Thanks to the application of the tested Matrix and advanced Nautilus technology, B&W managed to get unprecedented sound quality.
Photos 19-25 are scans from STEREO and Stereoplay.
The German testers were like their British and American colleagues "begeistert".
Quote: very powerful and detailed rich sounding compact speaker with a quirky design and thorough finish which easily matches more expensive speakers.

The CDM 1 is a very successful design and an absolute hit in the compact range.
The speaker is very pleasant to the ear and has a lot of audiophile qualities.
The connection terminal is suitable for bi-wiring.
If you do not want that, you can connect the poles for high and low.
The original included bridges for that have been lost.
Wire bridges of good quality are included as a replacement.
The best way of connecting them is with a short piece of speaker wire, preferably the same cable as they are connected to the amplifier.
I will offer a good bi-wire cable at the same time on Catawiki.

Year of production: 1998.
Impedance: 8 ohms
Nominal power: 70 watts max. 120 watts
Efficiency 88 dB
Frequency range: 34 - 27,000 Hz.
Size: 37 x 30 x 22 cm (Height x Width x Depth)
Weight: 9 kg / Box.

All my audio equipment is professionally checked and tested.
At a company in Zuidlaren the equipment always get cleaned and repaired if necessary.

The speakers will be sent worldwide in a double box, boxed twice.
They may also be collected from Haren, near Groningen (NL), of course.

    Αγαπητέ κύριε Κωνσταντίνο Κωνσταντίνου,

    Μόλις επέστρεψα από διακοπές μου διάβασα τα σχόλιά σας.
    Καταλαβαίνω ότι το αριστερό κανάλι δεν καταγράφει σωστά.
    Το άλλο παράπονό σας είναι ασαφές για μένα.
    Έχω συμπεριλάβει λάθος CD-ROM;

    Εν πάση περιπτώσει.
    Θα σας στείλω μια άλλη συσκευή.
    Έχω 4 ίδια αντίγραφα.
    Δώσε μου μια στιγμή.
    Θα το δοκιμάσω επιμελώς πρώτα.
    Η επιστροφή του αντιγράφου σας δεν είναι απαραίτητη.
    Αυτό θα ήταν πολύ ακριβό από την Αθήνα.
    Όπως ακριβώς και την προηγούμενη φορά, θα στείλω μαζί με την Deutsche Post.
    Βασιστείτε σε 14 ημέρες παράδοσης.

    Μη διστάσετε να επικοινωνήσετε μαζί μου αν χρειαστεί.
    Με εύνοια,

    Schetiká me to Akai GX-230D.

    Geachte heer Konstadinos Konstadinou,

    Zojuist terug van vakantie lees ik uw feedback.
    Ik begrijp dat het linker kanaal niet goed opneemt.
    Uw andere klacht is mij onduidelijk.
    Heb ik de verkeerde CD-Rom bijgesloten ?

    Hoe dan ook.
    Ik stuur u een ander apparaat.
    Ik heb nog 4 dezelfde exemplaren.
    Geef mij even de tijd.
    Ik zal hem eerst grondig testen.
    Terug sturen van uw exemplaar is niet nodig.
    Dat zou vanuit Athene ook veel te kostbaar zijn.
    Net als de vorige keer zal ik met Deutsche Post verzenden.
    Reken op 14 dagen levertijd.

    Schroom niet contact met mij te zoeken indien nodig.
    Met vriendelijke groeten,
    Jan G. Hofkamp

    About Akai GX-230D.

    Dear Mr. Konstadinos Konstadinou,

    Just returned from vacation I read your feedback.
    I understand that the left channel is not recording properly.
    Your other complaint is unclear to me.
    Did I include the wrong CD-ROM?

    I will send you another device.
    I have 4 same copies.
    Give me a moment.
    I will thoroughly test it first.
    Returning your copy is not necessary.
    That would be too expensive from Athens.
    Just like last time, I will send with Deutsche Post.
    Count on 14 days delivery time.

    Do not hesitate to contact me if necessary.
    With best regards,
    Jan G. Hofkamp
