    Hi there,

    I have to decide between these two couples of speakers to be connected to a Marantz NR1605 (Home Theatre).

    I would use them for music (turntable and streaming) and of course for films.

    Which ones are better for a home use?

    Thank you!

    look at the bass response of each speaker, that will tell you a lot.

    Either will be fine. The Wharfedales will have a more prominent bass to them, and the Q Acoustics will be more neutral in comparison. Always best to audition a few pairs ideally, as you can also look at the Dali Zensor 1 and Monitor Audio Bronze 1.

    I bet that glowing WhatHifi review of the Wharefdales is going to turn a lot of people that way. As to how credible the review is...

    As said there are lots of alternatives at this point, try a few if at all possible.
