To Jeff Stockton,
I hope this e-mail finds you. I am responding to the review you did on the B&W CM5s. It was very refreshing to find an article on this particular speaker that didn’t involve very high-end wiring, amplification, and so on. I have an old Yamaha RX-V850 from the mid ‘90s that powered a pair of Polk RTA15s quite well. I had to part with the speakers and use an old set of Bose 301s, but am now in the market to put together a decent "class B" stereo. I’m pretty sure I can use the Yamaha for a while, as it is nothing like the newer ones rated at the same power. It’s a real beast at only 80Wpc. Keep up the good reviews.
