B&W CDM-1 original ............... opinions wanted

Does anyone know if the original B&W CDM-1 speaker is as good as the 805 Matrix?

Anyone have these speakers? know when they were made around? Circa?

I have them since new, and like them....very neutral, very surprising soundstage considering the size.

At high volumes sure it won't be confused with a full range and the small cabinet size shows, finally, but it's a solid performer. Not the last word on large-scale symphonic music, but for simpler-textured stuff like rock and jazz and acoustic/vocals at moderate volumes they are fantastic. And look awesome too. WAF extremely high especially if you have the grille covers off.

Stereophile did a review on it and John Atkinson though they were very close to his Silver Signatures @ 8X the price.

I owned the CDM 1SE for almost a decade. Good monitors at their price range. I owned the N805 for a short period and find them to sound smoother than the CDM 1SE from top to bottom. The price one is paying for the 805 includes the beautiful curved cabinet apart from improved sound quality.
