    So far I'm swimming straight ahead with ear plugs in place! I have somehow managed not to audition either Qsub yet . . . need to wait until I move to the next room before integrating one into the system . . . yet, irresistible, I think.

    After first hearing the Q3 six years ago, I have finally had the opportunity to audition a pair for two weeks in my own system. I decided to buy them. If interested, you can read more about the decision on my system page:

    Thank you Christian. Perhaps not as full range as your great system, but they do present more of the music. They seem to be an almost perfect match for my room.

    It’s important Peter that you keep all that plastic wrapping on so when you come to trade up they are like new

    Preferably mint in box.....

    Congratulations and enjoy! They look great in your room. Excellent write-up regarding your decision to buy. From reading that a big “THANK YOU” is due to your wife Anne for not exercising her veto powers!
