Bowers & Wilkins updates their M-1 speakers and PV1D subwoofer

The Bowers & Wilkins are in the process of remodeling their equipment, and so began with one of its most veterans products, the M-1. This unit will receive new drivers that promise to offer an “audio system with an improved yield, for playing all kinds of audio frequency”.

The PV1D subwoofer received an even more deep change, and now has the same digital platform as the DB1 model, besides a new OLED panel and new specifications, such as a dynamic equalizer, for example. The only member of Theater Mini line that remains intact is the ASW608 subwoofer, which only suffered a color change (to white) to match the M-1.

They all start to be sold in early 2012.
