Would like to know what other speakers you Quad owners have auditioned and why you ended up choosing the Quad's?
I did not audition as many as I probably should have.
Revel F32's & M22's which I actually preferred but were out of my price range.
Anthony Gallo nucleus micro's, which I preferred even the L-ite's over.
Polk LSi15's which were nice but pricey and I didn't like the appearance.
A few others including models from JBL, Mirage, Focal, and Martin Logan, none of which I liked as much as the Quad's. And Sonus Faber which were all awesome but way out of $ range.
The Quad's I thought had a very classy appearance, and I liked the neutrality of the sound. Also the price was right.
Going forward I think the sensitivity is a little too low for my big room, so I am considering upgrading in the near future. Also the center is definitely too weak for my tastes. I can barely make out dialogue a lot of the time, and I don't feel it matches the 22L2's perfectly. I loved the Revel's if I want to spend a little more, but have been looking at a lot of the ID brands also, and wondering how they all compare.
FYI I use 22L2's for fronts, L2 center, and 4 L-ite surrounds. I use dual MFW-15 subs. Hooked up to a Sherbourne 7/2100a for power.
