I guess it's a compromise when the same speakers will be used for music as well as home theater.
I listen to mostly rock music and don't feel the Q100's are bright at all. The drums and cymbals are crisp, the vocals are very clear and everything is well balanced. I could and have listened to music on the Kefs all day without ear fatigue. With Klipsch, I couldn't do more than an hour before my ears start to bleed. The Wharfedale are very laid back and are better suited for jazz and classical. The Q3020 are pretty good, but some members reported they feel a little short from the Kefs in detail and clarity. YMMV
