Advice in choosing small bookshelf speakers

Hi folks :)

I am choosing between two small bookshelf speakers:

- Tannoy Mercury V1

- Q Acoustics 2010/2010i

 

They costs more or less the same. I want two of them, later will buy center and surround. But I will use them for music too.

I am able to audition QAs but Tannoys are impossible to hear. So I cannot decide. Which do you think are better? Or more suitable for me?

I want speaker better for music then movies (from my experience, even bad speakers do movies okay). I listen to many kind of styles (except pop, hiphop, hard metal styles, trance).

I do not plan using subwoofer in future (family, neighbours and personaly I never like that big basses from sub). I have small room (2x4 metres)..

I do not think there are any other speaker in this price that fit my needs - speakers must not has more depth than 20cm OR width must be less then 17cm. Hard to explain, it's just the limitation of my shelf :(

 

So, I would like to ask if anyone had hear these two speakers and can compare them?

I can see only that

- Tannoys are bigger (better basses?)

- Tannoys has bassreflex, QAs are closed boxes (don't know what difference it makes..)

 

Thanks for any respond :)

I think I will buy Tannoy

I think I will buy Tannoy V1s, without hearing anything. I like reviews so I hope they will be good :)

TANNOY

 I think the Tannoy speakers are very good.

I am not familiar with the others.

I had demo QAs at home and I

I had demo QAs at home and I found out that they are rear ported! So it's not for me.. 

I found Dali Concept 1 and Tangent EVO E4, will try demo them. Tangents are closed, easier to borrow home, cheaper and not ending model line like Dali's Concept which will be hard to buy surround/center/sub later
