CMS 50

Limited stock available in select stores only

The design of the CMS 50 permits a listening position from 50cm away, while still keeping the possibility of the monitors at a great distance from one another without damaging the soundstage. The 5 mid-woofer reaches down to 55Hz, while offering a controlled bass and a totally linear midrange. The midrange register of the CMS 50 has unequalled neutrality in its price range. The Al-Mg inverted dome tweeter offers outstanding dynamics and a degree of definition in the treble that allow precise measurement of reverb and other effects which are normally very difficult to assess.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreEdmonton Downtown, Alberta
I have had these monitors for a year to the day and i can say i love them. They have some of the most clear high-end I have ever heard, while the mid-tones are excellent I feel the lack a certain clarity(albeit for a 5" woofer it is more then expected) while lowtones our good I use the CSM sub to fill in the sub-base range. all in all they are a amazing set but be warned that they will be hard to get the full potential out of these unless in a well designed listening environment (even to this day i still find myself making micro adjustment to positions). on a final note these monitors are VERY heavy and can be difficult to get proper decoupling i would recommend speaker stands.
