These are amazing! I currently use them on my desktop, but have used them on good stands and they just present vast musical tapestry.... The S2 version is little different from the S1, but will give other small monitors at 10 times their price run for their money... You need to give them at least 300-400 hours of the break in....Their sonic character undergoes quite a few changes during that period. Also if you d like more bass, don't add a sub, get the CM5 model...These are fantastic as well.
I haven't heard the S2 version of the CM5 but I thought the S1 version did not image as well as the S1 version of the CM1. Even if it did, the price difference is pretty large so it would have to have a lot deeper bass to justify. But I don't rule it out.
It's never too late to turn back the clock.
I did own the CM5 S1s as well :) .... Owned both at the same time in different set ups... The CM5 S1 imaged more tangibly, had more body, the CM1s just disappeared better as a point source....
