jarledb: Hi-fi is expensive in New Zealand huh?

Not exactly in my budget, but a good example:
http://www.avworld.co.nz/product/bowers-wilkins-cm5/

These speakers cost about 1800 NZD here in Norway. Thats almost half price compared to NZ.


I have the CM9 fronts CM1 rears and a CM Centre 2 and they only cost me $6500 all up at Harvey Norman where as AV World have just the CM9s costing more then that. I would guess that the price listed is full retail but that if you were to actually inquire you will will get a better price.

I have also found this at Sound Expression here in Wellington with a recent purchase of a Yamaha A-S2000 amp and Project Debut Carbon turntable which only cost $3500 which is the retail list for just the amp so the turntable was free (thats how I sold it to the wife anyways).

I've also heard this said of Paul Money that if you contact them with your requirements they will work something out with you.


Wow that's a good deal, do you remember how much you paid for just the cm9?

How do you find the bass on the cm9?


Not sure about individual costs of each speaker sorry, I think it was $4500 for just the CM9 but it dropped further when I said I would like the whole package - the centre alone retails for $2500.

Bass wise they are pretty good, I have them about a foot from the wall. They also come with foam bungs for the bass ports if you need to drop the bass further. The real plus for these speakers is the midrange which is just sublime.


nice setup, i have cm8 and i found its not bassy enough, thinking to upgrade to cm9

what amp are you using to run your theater setup?



I have a fairly old Sony STR-DA1200ES but its only driving centre  rear and sub as the fronts use the Yamaha A-S2000 as a power amp (it has a pass through mode for AVR use).




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

 


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

Have you checked out Rapallo AV? www.rapalloav.co.nz
Bought my Oppo and some speakers from them, quite happy with their service.

Another plug for Paul Money. John is great to deal with. Got my Wharfedale Jade 5s and the beast of a centre off him, great pricing.
