As one of the lucky Q-Acoustics 2050 competition winners I just wanted to say thank you to the team after receiving the prize on Monday.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
I'm pairing the speakers with a Cambridge Audio 640aV2, a cheap DAC from Hotaudio and a Pro-Ject 1.2 turntable. In terms of sound quality I agree with the WHF review in that they over a very smooth listen with plenty bass, my only wish is that they had a little more sparkle in the treble but other than that they are a fine speaker. For reference I borrowed a pair of Quad 12L2 speakers for a comparison with the Q-Acoustics and whilst the Quad’s do offer fantastic imaging and a sense of air around the treble the Q-Acoustics more than make up for that lack of sparkle with its richer mid-band, better bass and equally impressive soundstage.
Anyway thanks again and just thought I would share my experience with the speakers.
