    Hey all, just wondering if someone could answer some questions about the CDM NT series.

    I know this line has been discontinued, but does anyone know how much:

    - a pair of CDM 9NTs used to cost
    - a CDM CNT used to cost
    - a pair of CDM SNTs used to cost?

    I understand the CDM 7NTs used to retail at 1250.

    Also, if anyone has heard some combination of this series in an AV system, I would be interested to know if you feel a sub is essential? Of course that may be dependant on which speakers in the series are used :D

    Cheers,

    Gav

    I use a CDM System:
    Front: 2 CDM9NT
    Center: CDMCNT
    Back: 2 CDM1NT (not yet installed:blush: )
    Sback: Boston Ac. VRS PRO
    Sub: B&W AS3000
    I bought the sub before I had any CDM-speakers, because I intended to buy a couple of N805s. I think that, with CDM9NT, one could live without a sub for a while...

    Gavin...for that sort of budget,you should also have a look at the Nautilus 805's,which,whilst being a bit bass-light in comparison with the CDM9NT are a much clearer speaker(IMHO of course!)and with suitable amps also have a surprisingly good bass extension.

    I've got the nt package, using the 9nt's at the front and have found them to be exellent. Clarity is bordering on scary, midrange is superb, however I have found that a sub is essential.
    When I first got them, I was initially disapointed as I didn't have a sub, and they took a fair bit of running in. Once I got my sub though, and after they had been properly run in I loved them.
    I tried a couple of subs that are worth an audition. The M&K MX350 was good but uglier than a bull dog chewing a wasp. The Rel Stentor III was good but as I have a big room the volume had to be turned up pretty high to be effective, but the problem with that was you could start to tell where it was coming from.
    In the end I opted for a pair of cheaper Rel Stadium III's and am really impressed.
    So I would say get the CDM 9NT's, but definetly get a sub or even two smaller subs to go with them.
