I know I'm replying to a very old post, but I thought I'd chime in because I emailed KEF today and got a response within a couple hours.
I asked if the iQ60 was matched to the iQ7's (which I purchased from accessories4less today). The reply was:
That's the beauty about the Uni-Q driver in all KEF Products - theyre voiced to fit/compliment all models. Even though the newer version iQ series has an updated Uni-Q driver, it was voiced by the same engineer with these types of scenarios in mind.
So you should be fine with the iQ 60 if you wish to purchase one.
Hope you enjoy this system! The iQ 7s were terrific. Let me know if you need further help.
Based on that response, I picked up the iQ60 at a local shop.
So, contrary to my post above, I decided against the C Series, and went with the iQ's. I can't wait for the iQ7's to arrive in about two weeks! I'll buy surrounds in a few months, I think, then finish it off with a Sub (leaning towards SVS). Right now, I'm using very cheap 5.1 Yamaha speakers, so having a KEF system by mid-year will be a much overdue upgrade!
