I am not a B&W fan. They are generally nice.

My wife bought these while we dated over 30 years ago. Now our bedroom speakers refinished black.



B&W DM110 speakers
We start with a relatively affordable speaker, the DM110 (110 when we reviewed them in June 1984, so around 300 in today's money). These speakers sported a black chipboard cabinet with a silver baffle, a 32mm soft dome tweeter and a 50mm paper mid/bass driver. We described it as, "a mass produced speaker made in very large quantities for export", which sounded then, strangely, like a criticism, but with B&W now shifting large numbers of speakers all over the world, it was something of a trailblazer. Certainly, "powerful yet easy going" with a "striking, stylish finish", successfully set the tone for test verdicts that would apply to B&W speakers for many years to come.

These doing surround and center duty with the main system.
