Bowers & Wilkins PM1 SpeakersBowers & Wilkins’ latest bookshelf speakers, the PM1, attempt to tread the middle ground between the more affordable CM5s and high-end 805 Diamond models. Touted as the most refined small speaker yet created, B&W PM1 speakers, features a carbon braced tweeter that extends well into the mid-range frequency at 20 khz that brightens the instruments and voices of performers with great accuracy.
For the true audiophile the company has created speakers with new technological innovations with a carbon base that makes the B&W aluminum domes even more impressive. Sitting below the Carbon Braced Tweeter is what at first appears to be a regular Bowers & Wilkins Kevlar® cone bass/midrange driver, as found on the likes of the well-regarded CM1, and which is renowned for its ability to deliver clarity and detail at mid frequencies.
Magico, famed loudspeaker builder, will introduce a new line of “Q”speakers, starting with the Q5. The Q5 is a full aluminum-bodied floorstander that fits into the Magico range above the V3 and below the M5. A new in house machine shop with six CNC milling machines allows Magico to build the Q5 at a far lower cost than their previous all aluminum speaker, the M6.
