that will help with the music too.  Do you have a source for HD sound? I currently have the yamaha Z9 which is a great amp but looking to add HD codecs to the mix as well.

RE: Ken Kreisel Quattro Series

My Denon can accept HD audio via LPCM, so I use a Sony bluray player that decodes HD audio, can't remember the model, its a few years old now though.  You should try and get to Coventry for a demo of Ken's new speakers, they really are absolutely superb  It didn't take long for me to get my credit card out after a short demo there!

RE: Ken Kreisel Quattro Series

Seems it is going to be relentless, as I know that isn't all we're going to get coming to these shores from Ken!

It's a shame you can't make it v1c - I tried to pick a non public holiday weekend, non sporting Saturday, and most people still can't make it! Still, it'll be good that it won't be too busy as it'll be the first open day I'll be hosting myself!

RE: Ken Kreisel Quattro Series

Im ordering one of the ken kriesel subs  DXD 808 next week  from HIFIX, my room is also small 5m x 3,5m 

Ive check speakers specs for a later upgrade,  and the Q85 seems to work has L / C / R  but they are being sold has pair, what is used for center speaker with Q85? another single Q85 ? 

Can one  Q85 unit be sold individually? or the Q125 center  will match the Q85? 

And what about surround ? the Q125 TriFIX will match the Q85 Left  and  Q85 Right ? or will se another range of Q85 center and  Q85 TriFix surround ? 

 

Ps : the L/R  Q85 will be fall apart about 2, 20 m, if they are really good,  i doubt i will need any center speaker in sweet spot.

Just give me a call the day before delivery is required - and if you place the order via myself rather than via the website, it will also have some extra protective layers round it in order to make sure it gets to you safe and sound.

As the Q85's are only available in pairs from the distributor, I think the intention is still to use the Q125c as a dedicated centre. All the speakers are timbre matched, so mixing and matching isn't an issue. The centre generally has to deal with the majority of the signal, so using the Q125c will have clear advantages over a single Q85.

Again, they're all timbre matched, so you can use the Q125TriFX for a more enveloping surround experience, or the Q125 or Q85 for more precise and direct surround information. As far as I know, the current range of Quattro will be it, although there will be Quattro Slim, which will be the same driver layout but less depth to the cabinet.

They do image eexcellently in this respect. When I'm listening to music in stereo, you'd swear blind the centre channel was on. And a few times I have had to check my processor to make sure a surround format hasn't been selected! The only drawback with the no centre approach is that you can't change the volume of the centre channel information in relation to everything else, as it doesn't exist. Some action movies can sometimes swamp dialogue with effects if they're not mastered to a particularly high standard, and some movies do have very quiet dialogue in some scenes, like Se7en, No Country For Old Men, and Zodiac. Obviously you can start with no centre and see how you get on.

Ken is an extremely helpful guy, and it is impressive that he answers all technical queries directly.

Nothing other than what he has already released via the likes of Facebook.

The details of the pre/power can be revealed at the end of this month after their product launch at their HO. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend, but I should have details as soon as it happens.

RE: Ken Kreisel Quattro Series

Time to resurrect this thread.

Spoke to Ken via email yesterday and the Quattro series will not be around much longer (Limited editions). The new speakers on his facebook page are coming in the next few months. That is from the man himself

Incorrect. They are not being discontinued. Contact L Sound the distributor.

Copied from another forum.

 

Just an update for you guys about a rumor that was posted on AVForums yesterday and I thought I would update you, Ken has given me permission to use this email  :) 

Is there a Limited Edition version that is possibly being phased out? 

Someone emailed me yesterday asking if they should buy the 7.1 QUATTRO system and here is exactly what I emailed him about the QUATTRO Q125’s: 

“You might know that all the QUATTRO Q125 models in wood cabinets are special limited edition versions so if you are interested in buying some you might not want to wait too long. Russell can give you more information about availability of the models you want as it sounds like you will not be ready to buy speakers for several months. The Q125 SL’s (SLIM’s) will be in aluminum extrusion cabinets which are a little smaller.” 

I never said a new range is imminent unless they are referring to the Q125 aluminum extrusion cabinets or the studio dubbing stage multi-tweeter monitors seen on my Facebook page which is not a secret. 

In reading what I wrote above, I realized I should have said HIGH GLOSS BLACK WOOD CABINETS instead of just wood cabinets. The current high gloss black wood cabinets were a special limited edition run. The next run of Q125 (LCR’s, TFX’s, QFH-Height’s, QMC-Multichannel) wood cabinets will be in a satin gloss finish with an option of grille finishes of high gloss, satin, and cloth over mesh grilles. The new aluminum extrusion Q125’s will be available in high gloss black as well as a variety of other finishes and colors including satin and matt finishes including white.

KEN

So hope that clears any confusion for anyone thinking about that question!
