I did wonder what the difference was, because on the website specs list, they're identical!Probably still better driver on R-serie, 3rd order audio crossover + higher quality parts (Q serie has 1st or 2nd order), also the cabinet is higher quality (thicker + better braced in bookshelf/tower models) weight difference isn`t big. Specs looks almost identical otherwise.
This also has keyholes at the back so it`s quite easy to wall mount(front wall) just under the ceiling and as the driver is angled it should work nicely there. AVSForum tested some of these upfiring speakers like that and results were great! I think that is a great option if one has wrong type of ceiling. Rather these than the bulky Q150 as height channels.

shame there is only 2 retailers participating in Scotland....and none in Glasgow!
As for the big question....are the R50's better than the Q50a's?
Specs look identical almost, but one could assume there is better version of UniQ driver in R50 and cabinet should be better aswell (like it is in standmount/tower versions), plus it`s 50£ cheaper so quite a no brainer...Did anyone find the answer to this question?
Q50a aestheticlly look so much more pleasing
