Wow, deciding on a pair of speakers is becoming increasingly difficult, made more so by todays visit to my local hi-fi store! Upon asking a staff member about the going rate of the Q Acoustic 1000 series, he immediately questioned my decision, and promtly recommended me the Wharfdale (Diamond 9.1 series I think?) set instead. I got to the store late and therefore could not demo them, but he welcomed me to return anytime to give both sets a spin. Now I know how important it is to demo stuff before purchase, but i also believe that it is very hard to get comprehensive results under such conditions, and there are many factors that cannot be decerned in such haste, hence why I'm calling on you experts!!! Please note that my main concern is music above movies, but require a 5.1 set up for gaming purposes. Thanks in advance!
