I have it mind to dig out some poor recordings later today to test how forgiving they are.The design seems to have less (no?) sound deadening materials compared with the Ls3/5a.I see in the review from the Ear that the Q7 has a brighter less forgiving sound too.
Still very interesting speakers though.
Have you given up on the Stirlings ?
Yes, given up on the Stirlings. They were included in the overall LS3/5a-ish plan as the V2 cost less than all the others and hence the used price might have been do-able.
Knowing the sound of the Falcons also helped the decision.
Must get the badges on today and evaluate any sonic improvement
