only reason for the 8 is a little bit lacking in the low end. Speaker placment is critical

Exceptional detail, very clear and crisp, which I quite like. I'm using the rotel ra-1060 integrated, and a sony 300disk, run thru the perpetual P3A DAC. the sound is nothing less than jaw-dropping. They are bass-lite, which is to be expected. I'll take the dynamics and control of a standmounter anyday, over a heavy-handed floorstander with more bass. When I add a sub (looking at Velodyne HGS-12, martin logan depth, or B&W AWS 750) my system will be complete!
Looks I gave only 8, becouse I like the looks of the new 705's better, but I've heard them, and while nice, I'll keep my CDM's!!!

Sound quality is excellent at the price and size, and that's all that really matters.

I just got my pair, moving up from a pair of B&W 602s. Since I have not listened to a lot of speakers in this price range it is a bit arrogent of me to vote. Take what I say for what it is worth. As a novice, I am incredibly impressed! I did not expect nearly this much improvement in my system from a speaker! Granted, they are still breaking in. The sound is a bit forward, a tad harsh, if not a bit bass light. That said, Even with these short commings, the soundstage is amazing-deep and focused.voices are full and natural sounding, and the mix of voices and instruments have good separation, seeming a whole while having realistic dimensions. clarity is outstanding! Their build is most impressive to someone who has been the budget budget route. I could not believe the solidity and heft of these speakers, thinking the dealer who delivered them to my car on a dolly really squeezing the moment for all its worth.This was much more speaker than I expected to get. Lastly, these speakers are part of a system that includes a Denon integrated amplifier and Rotel cd player, and from all I had read about the CDM 1nts revealing nature I expected to get the full report/sad truth. Well, I am in no doubt that I am hearing it, but I am still unbelievably pleased. Hopefully if this means if I upgrade more thoughtfully than I started out, the rewards could beyond anything I could conceive presently.Very lastly and finally-if my rating in naive, over enthusiastic.shhh....

Very picky on equipment.
You'll need to feed it with a good amp and good CD-player.

Not a forgiving speaker, it requires very good recordings and an amp and cd-player in the same price range to shine, but when it shines it bring tears of joy to your eyes.

I have a pair of CDM1s and haven't looked back.  They are just about run in and the bass extension has improved noticeably over time.

Yes you need to combine it with a good quality amp and sound source.  I've teamed them up with an old Luxman Brig after trying many modern solid state amps.  If the budget stretches try a Classe amp.  With both these types of amps they speakers stand out with good, but not overbearing presences, excellent detail and a an obviously flat and extended range.
