SOLD: B&W DM5 Speakers

Recommended Posts

Item: B&W DM5 Speakers
Location: Brisbane
Price: $325
Item Condition: Amazing
Reason for selling: Too Many Speakers (so I'm told...)
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: 
1970's B&W Bookshelf speakers in amazing condition - would not look out of place in the B&W museum! All original drivers although the bass drivers have been re-foamed at some stage. Lots of info on the web about these, but in short they have a typically British sound, so not too bright and with great mids. Obviously with a cabinets of this size (455mm H, 227mm W & 241mm D - see last photo for size reference) and with a 5.5" bass driver they are not going to have bass like the DM6. Photos give you a good idea of just how nice this matched set are visually. Can be demo'd Tennyson Qld and can be shipped at buyers expense.

      Item: B&W CM6 S2 Speakers
      Location: Brisbane
      Price: $1500
      Item Condition: Very Good
      Reason for selling: NLR
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only 
      Extra Info: Can be shipped Australia wide as have original boxes.
      Lots of online info if you are not familiar with them - but these are up there with the best in bang for buck. From a personal point of view these are some of the best bookshelf speakers I have owned and their real strengths are detail & sound stage. Grills are magnetic attachment which is nice as it leaves the fronts 'blemish free' when removed. I have the boxes for the speakers so can ship Australia wide at buyers' expense. Can be demo'd in Tennyson, Brisbane. The CM6 S2 has recently been replaced by the B&W 705 speakers that sell (RSP) for $3499 so this set is less than half the price of buying the new version. (Some B&W resellers still have stock of CM6 S2 and have them listed at $2999.) 
      Pics form part of the description and guide to overall condition. The only blemish on the speakers just to the right of the Bowers & Wilkins logo and is shown in the last image.

      Item: NAD D7050 Digital Amplifier and Bowers & Wilkins CM5 S2 bookshelf speakers w. B&W stands
      Location: Surry Hills NSW, close to Central Station
      Price: $2000 (prefer to sell together, but can discuss separating) - happy to make a donation to SN if they sell via the site!
      Item Condition: Amp: very good condition, recently serviced by Len Wallis Audio with brand new power supply installed. Speakers in excellent condition with only minor / hairline swirls visible, as are the stands.
      Reason for selling: Rearranging our sound situation, for reasons of space
      Payment Method: Pickup - cash preferred
      Extra Info: 
      Amp was purchased new from Addicted to Audio in 2016, speakers were purchased from another SN member at the same time. Neither have been driven hard, mostly used for TV/movies and a bit of music while working. It's a great compact system, and should go to a good home! Also have the original box, manual / booklet & packaging for the speakers, and two sets of spikes for the stands (different lengths). We're a no-pets / non-smoking household, so no rogue fur or smells are attached to these.

      Speaker info from Stereophile review:  https://www.stereophile.com/content/bowers-amp-wilkins-cm5-loudspeaker
      "The B&W CM5 touched me in a unique way. With every recording I played, this neutral, dynamic speaker revealed layers of detail that let me hear into the recording process, but in a way that made it easy to forget about that process, kick back, and enjoy the music. Just as paradoxically, its high level of resolution let me differentiate among great, good, and not-so-good recordings, but in a way that didn't lessen my enjoyment of music that had been poorly recorded. If I had to, I could live with this affordable bookshelf model as my only loudspeaker. I can't remember the last time I said that about another speaker in the USD$1500/pair price region. A tremendous achievement by Bowers & Wilkins."

      Item: Pair of B&W CM series speakers in black gloss
      Price Range: 500-2000
      Item Condition: New or Used
      Extra Info: location VIC
      I'm looking for a pair of B&W CM speakers to use as rears to match my CM s2 front end.  Something CM s2 would be my preference but I'm not too fussy about that, model type or cosmetic condition.  I'd be interested in:
      CM1 s1
      CM5 s1
      CM8 s1
      CM9 s1
      CM1 s2
      CM5 s2 
      CM6 s2
      CM8 s2
      CM9 s2 
      CM10 s2
      So if you live in VIC, have any of the above, and are looking to move them on, PM me and maybe we can negotiate a deal.
