This is one highly entertaining pair of speakers. At the top of the CM-series, it is highly regarded by users and reviewers alike. With an original $3000 MSRP, it is a terrific bargain. At this price, you are getting a 3-way speaker that features their outstanding Nautilus tube loaded aluminum dome tweeter that is responsible for the smooth and highly detailed high notes, their iconic Kevlar mid-range driver and twin 6.5″ bass cones. Listening to these speakers, you will be drawn to how balance it sounds. The highs were nicely mated to the slightly punchy mid-range and backed up by tight bass notes. Bass was not particularly deep or voluminous but it was very punchy and tight. In a small or medium size room, it was weighty and can give the impression that it sounded deeper that it is rated for.
These speakers love power and the more powerful the amp they are mated to the more robust they sound. Careful positioning is also a major contributor to how good they can sound. They can create one of the best soundstage found on any speakers costing up to $5,000. Just remember to keep them slightly forward from the rear wall to allow the rear port to breathe some depth to the soundstage.
Speakers are in good condition. Some minor knicks here and there but nothing major. Base plinth has a few small knicks and one corner ding. Not really visible unless up close. Finish is rosenut.
