was deciding between a pair of JB3 and Q Acoustics 1010. (won't reveal the final choice)

 

the JB3 speakers definitely has better aesthetics with its piano gloss finish and the nice looking dome.

 

sound-wise, kekeke, i had not auditioned them yet, but i'm no audiophile so i guess that i can't tell the difference much.

How would you know the difference even b4 you tried listening to them?  ;D

 

Audiophile or not - you will only know how you like the speakers after u heard them

 

;D

i think u misread.

i'm trying to say that i'm not an audiophile, so even if i go audition them, i may not be able to tell the difference much anyway.

IMHO, even u r an audiophile or not, u can still hear the difference if there is one. What I meant is that most speakers have different characteristics from 1 another n u can listen n see which one u like best.

 

For me, sometimes the differences will also be measure by price. For example if I am listening to a pair of $200 speakers with a pair of $2000 speakers n I realise that the $2000 speakers r only a little more better than the $200 pair(in my own listening judgement) than I guess I wont invest in the $2000 pair.

 

If I can get the "WOW" effect from the $2000 speakers that I am listening to, than I will definitely buy it if I can spare the cash.

 

Should take some time to audition the speakers yourself rather than asking for peoples opinion cos what others listen may not be what u want.  :)

sound is highly subjective and perceive differently by individuals

 

audition is for whether the sound suit yr personal taste n if u like the look.  for eg i realise i m drawn to a warm sound (but not laid back), so bright speakers (metallic drivers) do not appeal to me, yes they hv the speed and dynamics but long hr listen fatigue my ears,  :P

oh! haha! of course there's a difference between a S$200 pair and a S$2000 one.

 

both the Q Acoustics and JB3 are rather similar in pricing, and hence my assumption. but it will be perfect if both can be found in the same store (which is impossible due to the distributors, but it will be easier to do a comparison side by side).

 

i realise that small bookshelf speakers are indeed a bit lacking in bass, but that's the trade-off i'm willing to take. kekeke

furthermore, the diff electronic and environment also affected the perception of the sound from the spkrs.  One more thing, it's a known fact that some retailers modded their audition spkrs for better sound, so what u heard may not be what u r getting!! ;D

yep, remembered went with a friend to audition a HT system, sounded fantastic in the shop but when set up a home, he said macham panchek.  but good news is can still slowly fine tune sound (speaker position, cable change, etc), may not get 100% but at least can max out based on room setting,  ;)

what i wanted to say is that u have not even heard them - how can u say that you think that there will not be much difference? You will be surprised how much "difference" there is after hearing :p

oh chey, muahhahahahha.... my bad.

 

if there's some dealer bringing in both brands, even better if all famous brands for small bookshelf come together, i'll definitely go for an audition.

hmm i suspect for JB3 u need to go to someone's place to hear them. For Q acoustics i think adelphi got demo rite? Not sure which shop though

 

keke, lukey from the memoir acoustics can offer me the audition, and the Q Acoustics is at the shop on level 1 adelphi... can't remember the shop name! arrrgh!

 

but the variables will be different, like the setup used, room setup and size. so it will be the best of both worlds if both auditions can take place at the same place.

There are some that are neutral. High efficiency with speed and dynamics, then add in tube magic = Audio Bliss :D

... if sell at 90% discount by then what is the age of the speakers... probably need reconing or new rubber lining and if u make any component change, the sound will change...

 

eg i use to own a pair of the infamous Yamaha NS series giant bookshelfs with 10" bass drivers, when it was 10yrs old, one of the mid blow and the rubber linings for the woofers started to giving way... so i end up giving it away to a DIY friend.

 

back to the JB3, at $299, its worth to buy, imho.  :)
