    I know i'ts a difficult question but whats your opinion:

    Are the KEF Q1 better than the MA Bronze 2? In what if possible?
    I have my doubts on the Q1s about bass control... is this true?

    And the Focal Chorus 706S if you know them?

    Thanks! :thumbsup:

    Don't know if that's any help. I like the Kef Q1 but I slightly prefer the Monitor Audi Silver S1. I rate both as good speakers.

    I haven't listened to the B2.

    I like the MA S1 very much!

    My options are:

    Level up - Quad 12L+11L / MA S2+S1
    Level down- Kef Q1+Qcompact / MA B2+B1 / Focal 706s+705s

    front/rear

    Level will depend on room/budget (I've got two options)

    --->Quad 12L+11L

    I really like the Quad, I almost bought some but went Dyns instead. If money is an issue, I don't think you need the 12L. 4 11L would be a great setup.

    ---> MA S2+S1 +SLCR =~ £920

    ---> MA B2+B1 + B centre =~ £420

    May I suggest:

    MA S1 + B1 + SLCR =~ £680

    So £260 more than a Bronze setup but still £240 less than your "level up" setup. I reckon you are due a visit to your dealer to compare :D

    I was allmost decided on the MA Silvers...

    But the Quads here are cheaper... and are amazingly transparent and clean...

    I also had in mind your suggestion... ;-)

    The Dyns are out... an AVReceiver is too weak for their sensitivity...
