Harmonically, the CS 8.2 sounded right. A refreshingly musical alternative experience.
Steven Stone, The Absolute Sound, 2020 Editors' Choice Award
Powerful, dominant, yet subtle and clear sound at reference level.
The sound of the CS 8.2 is hugely satisfying, deceptively easy to enjoy and above all entirely musical. Throw in the flexibility on offer, the build and style, and this is a really special product.
