Just ordered a pair of these, having just moved house and wanting to downsize the stereo. The plan is for the Onkyo TX-NR818 amp to go, likewise the Tannoy DC4s and let the Quads do the work. They're a neat size, a little taller than the Tannoy pair, but not only are they active, they come with an onboard preamp and 24/192 DAC. Connectivity incudes optical, coaxial, USB and line level RCA inputs. Looking forward to hearing these and I'll post some thoughts when I've had a chance to get them up and running.
