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.

  • The tape carry mechanism does not work, will not open. The seller is aware of the situation and has offered a replacement. I may chose to repair locally, but at extra cost to me.
