    Anyone heard these just yet? im planning to do a setup 5.1 with these as my 4 speakers and Q6c for the centre with the the KEF2150 sub. How will this setup compare to the 2005.2?
    i like the eggs... but if i'd pay abit more, i might get this if it indeed sounds better.

    compare them. i would expect the Qcompact setup to sound better. i recently purchased Q5/Q1/Q9c, btw.

    if you can move up to the Q1s and a Q9c across the front (or 3 Q1s), you'll be in business.

    but i want to wall mount them see... and i reckon the Q1s are a little too big for my liking.

    yeah, they're pretty chunky.

    i'd recommend the Qcompacts, although the eggs are probably ready to be wall-mounted out-of-the-box.

    how big is the uniQ driver on the eggs, anyway?

    if you've an idea about how you're going to mount the Qcompacts, it's a no-brainer then, probably

    a "no-brainer" is a decision that doesn't require very much thought
