Summary: The KEF iQ60 is a wonderful all around product. It has a stunning finish and the rounded face also sets it apart from the all too common flat faced center channels. But what's really important is the sound, which is where it sets itself apart from the rest. It has a crisp accurate sound, and most importantly for a center channel has wide dispersion characteristics. That means there is a very large sweet spot for critical listening.
Summary: I have been a proud owner of KEF 3005 "eggs" for 4 years now. Two years ago I upgraded to 7.2 by adding in some IQ9 towers and I have never been happier. Since I have always wondered if my center was holding it's own weight against my towers. Time went by and the iq60c went on clearance so I decided to jump on the deal and I am glad I did. In direct comparison, it has similar specs as the center I was replacing, or moving to the bedroom.
Summary: When my wife recently informed me that I had not mentioned to her what I wanted for my birthday, I had to pause and think for a minute; I was happy with my laptop, my sound system had been refreshed over the last 3 years and I just got a new car. What could a techie like me want now? I started thinking about how important the center channel is in a surround sound system and I was off to Amazon to start researching center channel speakers.
Summary: I recently purchased a complete Kef Q series system including (2)iQ50's, (1) iQ60c, (1)Q400b, (2) Ci130QsII's. Construction and sound quality are excellent. I mostly listen to Jazz, Classical guitar and rock. Because the entire system is based on 5.25 speakers, it is also excellent for an extremely well balanced and clear surround sound movie experience. I highly recommend Kef's Q series.
Summary: I got this speaker to replace my KEF Model 100 center speaker which I was using with KEF Q80 as main speaker (yes, these are quite old speakers :) ) iQ60c sounds much better than Model 100 and it blends in better with Q80. Sound is full and robust. Dialogs are very intelligible from this speaker. I am very pleased with its performance.
