    I've been toying with the idea of getting the new Kef Q9C center, mainly because it has much better frequency response than my Q95C center since the new one is ported. The old center is spec-ed at 85Hz, with the new one at 50Hz. Anyone have any idea whether the new one would still match my current Q35 mains?

    Also looking for any impressions on the new Kefs, for those who have heard them, and especially curious about comparisons with the older models.

    I have a mixture of Q50's and the 100C reference Center channel. The new Kefs are even MORE laid back than the old ones. I have to say I think a bit too laid back now... I'm selling my Kefs as soon as my Divas arrive. I figured for about the same money I could reoutfit my entire system with all new stuff. I also liked the sound of the Divas a little better than my Kefs. They have a bit more detail.
