Due to lack of space I was forced to get rid of my beloved Mordaunt Short floorstanders, and consider a more compact speaker. I did a lot of research and got it down to the Dali Zensor 1's or the Q Acoustics 2020i's. Opted for the latter on a free next day delivery option, and they duly arrived this morning.
On unpacking them I was struck by the solidity and quality of the finish, together with the attention to detail. The bi-wireable speaker connections are on the underside so you don't have to have cables trailing down the back. Connected them up to my Denon amp, and grabbed the nearest CD to hand, "Tango in the Night" by Fleetwood Mac. As soon as the opening bars of "Big Love" started I knew I had made a good decision.
I had no idea it was possible to get sound this good out of speakers this size. I have a pair of Roth Oli20's upstairs, and I have always been pleased with them, but the 2020i's are on a different level. OK, they're not as good as my Mordaunt Shorts, but they come a close second. The amount of bass they generate for such a small enclosure is hard to believe.
If you are looking for a pair of quality compact speakers, save yourself a load of time and trouble and just buy these - you won't be disappointed!"
