And no, I'm not willing to spend that kind of money to move up to the R series..., I got the 700's for $799, there are a pair of open box 900's for 1050 but there is some damage to the timber and one of the radiators has a dent in it, so i'm kind of skeptical... the Q700's are new.
The Q900 have bigger drivers which will allow for greater headroom more bass and greater sensitivity.
I just recently upgraded from Q900/q600c to the r700/r600c.
Its been a little over a week and I must say im not 100% sure that it was worth it yet....
Im still getting use to their sound. The r700s are not as efficient as the q900s.
I just cant put my finger on what the issue is...
My room is 14x12.
I mean the R series does sound a little bit better but not leaps and bounds ahead of the q series.
Im just glad that I didnt pay retail...I got a great deal on the r700s used...a deal I couldnt pass up. The r600c I got off of accessories4less.
I'll have to use the outter bungd w the r700s...maybe Im just not used to their sound yet. Its hard to blend the svs sb13 ultras and the r700s. They are very clear and detailed. Very good build quality. Bass is pretty impressive. They are about 2 years old...
To me the r600c is not as clear as the r700s. You can tell this when selecting channel level and switching between fl c fr.
Seems more muddy not as clear. For male voices maybe extra bass driver. Any one else notice this? Q600 seems clearer from memory
I like my speaker set as large and xo at 80hz. I have tried small and 80 xo and just sounds very thin. Not for me. I have the denon sub set up as main+lfe. SSeems to have better bass for subs and r700s. I did have to use the room gain compensation feature on the sb13's and it did help with blending better.
I still have my q900 and q600. I will have to swap them out and see how they sound now that I have had the r series.
I will post some pics of my set up
I really liked the q900, so go for it. You will like them.
