B&W CM6 S2 review


The CM6 S2s produce a regimented, tightly-controlled sound but lack the freedom of expression of the class-leaders

Bowers & Wilkins CM6 S2 loudspeakers REVIEW


The Bowers & Wilkins CM6 S2 loudspeakers delivered such a startlingly realistic performance that occasionally we shivered with the sheer excitement of it all.
