Bargain Expired Kef egg upgrade to Kef Q

I just wanted to share my recent experience. I have been looking to upgrade my Kef eggs. They have been fabulous but are now in a larger room and can sound harsh when the volume is turned up. 5 years ago I upgraded the sub to a BK monolith. Wow, what a speaker. Anyway, I was in the process of saving about 2k for the egg upgrade when I came across Superfi's offer on the Kef Q series. To cut a long story short I now have two Q700 as the front speakers, a Q600 as the centre and two Q100s at the rear. What a difference. The sound now fills the room, great clarity in the top and mid range and if the Q series has any shortcomings in the bass, the monolith kicks in. The cost of these 5 speakers was £1150 against the normal retail price of £1900. The choices are limited to rosewood or white. I got the rosewood ones and even my wife likes them. Result. I'm not sure how you could do better for just over a 1k.

I think the 100s will be fine as a surround speaker. I can't see what the 300s would offer much over them. Watched the film 'Fury' last night and noticed a big improvement in the dialogue quality. The 600C is a fab speaker, just big. Make sure you check the size of it. I'm also loving the stereo sound of the 700s. Who said they lacked bass ?
