I owned and used the DQ-10 for 15 years, it was a fine speaker.
I did do a comparison between them and modern speakers that were roughly the same caliber. What I found out was that the modern speakers were much more flexible as to source and volume level.
While the DQ-10s sounded just as good as modern speakers in certain situations ( a good recording and loud but not extreme volume levels) they were not flexible enough to handle movies, lower volumes, or very loud volumes well.
The modern speakers, on the other hand, handled everything with aplomb.
