    Finally got the call today from Sevenoaks to tell me that my Kef Q Compacts were in - they certainly look the part. Just hooked them up and they sound similar to the Q1s so mission accomplished!

    One thing to note is that the drivers are not the same size as the Q1s inspite of prvious info indicating that they were the same.

    Need to run them in and check them properly

    How big are they? Might be a serious alternative to sats for some people.

    Anyone got their hands on a Q4 yet? If so, how does it compare to the Q3 and Q5?

    Balders.

    We have the new Q6C in the shop and it's pretty impressive, certainly a lot easier to accomodate than the Q9C.

    Hi Crustyloafer,

    Any chance you could measure the height of the Q6C? I'm interested to know how much shorter it is than the Q9C.

    Cheers,

    Balders.

    Wilber, did you ever take that pic of a Q next to an egg? A lot of egg owners seem to be considering a Q6c as a centre, but I'm not finding it easy imagining a box speaker on top of my TV in place of a silver egg.

    wilber - I'd be interested to know how the compacts sound.. I've got front Q7's and am looking to replace old Q35s (acting as floor standing rears :) ). I'm torn between Q1 and compacts - the compacts look to fit better but I'm worried the Q7's might drown them so I'm keen to see what you think to them re Q1s
