The CM8 is a smaller version of the flagship CM9, designed with two purposes in mind. First, it brings the price down, making it more affordable for those that can't shell out for the CM9. Second, it's a more compact speaker for those with more limited space restrictions.
B&W's CM8 keeps the same one inch tweeter as its bigger brother, and still utilizes Nautilus design to keep the high end audio from being colored. It steps down a bit in the mid and low drivers, from 6.5 inches to an even five. Don't let the size worry you though, B&W says you'll still be hitting frequencies as low as 43Hz.
You can pick up the CM8 now from authorized dealers for a recommended price of $2,200 a pair.
