B&W 805S vs CM5s


I would like to hear people's experiences with the Bowers & Wilkins 805s vs the newer CM5s.

also, if you have experience with the 805s and the 805D, is it a huge leap up in quality with the newer design?

CM5s are budget speakers IMHO. They are not in the same league as any of the 805's. Lesser build quality, aluminum tweeter, not very involving, and does not have the B&W house sound. (but does have good detail).
My point is this; there are many other better performing speakers at that price point.

And of course speaker performance is amp dependent.
