    What size is your tv?

    I was taught that a gentleman does not query another gentleman as to the size of his display.

    Even if measured diagonally.

    That might've been true in the 70's, however nowadays that's perfectly acceptable. :)

    Nice TV! That one or the Samsung 82" are on my radar to replace my SHARP 70" at some point. However, I don't feel a strong need as of yet. No rush for 4K.

    Hi Steve,

    They are smooth. Based on things I heard about the Q100's, I thought they'd be tipped up or bright but, thankfully, they're very well balanced with gobs of detail. Tonal accuracy is quite good. I guess KEF worked hard on changing the reproduction between the previous model & the current model. I like them quite a bit!

    @halo I thought you sold the McCormack.
