They say on some sites, that these actually have impedance of 6 Ohms, with minimal 4 Ohms...where is the truth?
When I was searching for speakers that were intended for our living room, my wife said that they had to be compact & white (to suit the furniture). I had a limited budget & thought I was on an impossible mission but saw WhatHifFi's 5* review for the standard 2010's & presumed the "i's" could only better. So glad I bought them, the sound for these small speakers is excpetional.
Whilst a living room (naturally depending on its size) would possibly suit larger speakers if you really want to crank it up, for what I play (mainly Jazz, soundtracks, latin) & at the volume I play them at, then these are perfect. I've put them together with a Marantz MCR603, connected with QED Evolution XT cable & also a Q Acoustics Q2070Si sub (mainly switched on for viewing Sky or BluRay films - but does add some useful bass with music too).
I really don' think you can argue with them at this price (although chosing them in "white" does add an annoying £30+ premium over standard black or walnut colours)

Chord’s QBD76 HDSD is a top-class converter that delivers a brilliant sound from a well-built package. It has plenty of visual appeal, too
There are more talented rivals on the scene, but the veterans are enduring greats
Cracking value for an all-in-one home cinema system with only a few spec and performance gripes qualifying our praise
