    Speakers are a very personal thing,so it's hard to make a judgement for you,and your tastes and room,I'm sure the KEFS are very good,but concerning the B&W,if you have the space,the 603 would be the better buy,a good powerful speaker, with great power and scale.

    I havfe the kefs - they're really great, loads of details and the soundstage is amazing...tho, they are a bit light on the bass (for music), but I use a sub so that isn't really a concern...

    I haven't heard the b&w tho - you'll have to demo and see what suits you best.

    the q4's are a damn sight narrower than the b&w's if thats of any use to you! both look rather nice to me, I prefer the look of the kef's myself...

    I actually demo'ed both of these when looking for new fronts, and came home with the Q4's. They are an absolutely lovely speaker - it is true that they are not overly bass heavy, but thats not a bad thing often - for both music and home cinema purposes, they sound absolutely great...

    Thanks a lot,

    I have listened the both now and it looks to me that Q4 is more detail. So the only thing i am waiting for before buying them is Denon 1905.
