The HTM2 is the more affordable center speaker in a two model lineup. While the HTM1 is a bigger speaker and cost twice as much, the HTM2 is the easier speaker to set over your TV set and sounds just as good with only a small sacrifice in terms of scale, width and depth over the larger HTM1. Like the HTM1, the HTM2 has the same amazingly clear sound. Voice detail was lifelike and the bass was tight with a nice deep “growl” at 49 Hz. We have sold many center channel speakers in our store but this B&W easily ranks amongst the top three in our store now.
Cosmetically, the speaker looks nice. Some scuff marks/nicks from use and a little bit of “wrinkle” on the tweeter’s diaphragm but no impact on performance . We don’t have the original box or jumpers but will securely pack it for safe shipping.
