5 out of 5 "Bowers & Wilkins Concept 90 CM1/CM2 speakers"
I have owned a pair of Concept 90 CM1/CM2 speakers since May 1988 and have used them almost daily. The speakers are the only part of my Hi-Fi system that I haven’t felt the need to upgrade over the years due to the simple fact that the better my amps and sources have become the better these speakers sound. Currently they are hooked up to a Musical Fidelity KW500 Dual Mono Integrated amp that has been fully upgraded by JS Audio, a Michell Orbe deck with SME Series V arm and Ortofon MC500 cartridge, Trichord Delphini phono stage and JS Audio upgraded Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista 21 DAC with a home built music server. Although the recommended amps for these speakers are 50W-200W they simply thrive with the KW500 Watt amp. The soundstage is vast and all types of music sound truly fabulous. The HF & MF are crystal clear and the base from these relatively small cabinets is nothing short of remarkable. Oh and to top it all I have never had to have any parts replaced on the speakers. A fantastic build quality. What else can you buy that will last you nearly 25 years and still be as good as the day you bought it? Hats off to Kenneth Grange & Bowers & Wilkins.

Easily the best bang for buck along with maggie 1.6, I had many high end speakers and I like these as good as about anything else. They work great in any normal size rooms. Only not a 5 star product when compared to $10000 speakers.
