    Bit of a late response, but I think this is what hornydagon saw at Bristol, and he was impressed. I'm currently searching for tests/feedback on them.

    I think Essential Home Cinema Magazine gave them a "best buy". I had a look at their website to confirm this but it's less than informative. Perhaps another forum member can confirm this. I mean the award not the website be uninformative:)

    The answer is "pretty good". I had Kef 2005.2 Eggs and did not get on with the voice reproduction for ordinary TV (although they were fine for movies). The Kefs were, in my setup, dry/sibilant/speaker sounding as if he was doing so out of a box. I found a similar effect with a Monitor Audio Radius package that I demo'd. The KEF Q6c was much better, giving a weightier sound.

    Tried the Hexas and found them to give a much clearer soundstage (the drummer is almost touchable) and more natural vocal reproduction. I've kept the woofer and Kefs as rear speakers, but now have a system that I find natural, that doesn't draw attention to itself. Mind you, so it should, at the price...

    No sign of these at the Show unfortunately. The Proac guy said they couldn't be bothered to bring a full 5.1 setup, so just had some high-end stereo floorstanders running instead. :rolleyes:
