I disagree that the quads are classic rock speakers. In fact we demoed them with tons of classical and found the quads pretty accurate with complex orchestral peices.
I am referring to the 22L have not heard the new avatar but i guess it must be very similar.
Both these speakers would not be my speaker of choice but i guess they are both versatile enough to suit various needs.
Okay, then difference of opinions.
Btw how much is QUAD 22L2 in India? If ProAc studio 125 is around the same price range, I would add ProAc to the audition list.
Ah, now I see you are in Bangalore. You are so fortunate to be in the midst of India's best speaker manufacturers. I start this post with the disclaimer that i have never been fortunate enough to hear any of the following but just look at the feedback (full of raves) they receive and that speaks volumes. Perhaps you should include Acoustic Portrait in your list (Acoustic Portrait). Also lets not forget Cadence (Welcome to CadenceAudio WebSite) - you have Cadence Aritas and their VA-1 amp in a similar price range. Some day I would like to make a trip to Bangalore just to hear these!
Could any one help me to finalise between quad 22L2 and B & W 684 speakers,
i listen to fusion and classical.
...Consider the combo of Cyrus 8vs2 with the Dali Ikons. Excellent synergy.
If you can extend your budget, then the Proac Studio 140 is a very fine speaker.
Ofcourse you would need better amplification and a better source for the 140s....
