Seriously considering this. But it looks like a beast. I’d never hear the end of it. Literally.

Very nice price, but only in the walnut or cherry finish.
I've got the Q200C and it's awesome and rather large!
Ordered, well spotted, thanks.
Well worth it at this price. Discontinued now and never seen it this cheap. Not the smallest centre speaker so worth checking it will fit.
It’s huge

I've never heard the Q series but would have thought 3 of these across the front as L/C/R would be a good start for a nice sounding set up on a budget. Seems like a great price!
Amazing quality, hope you have the space !
From what I understand, this is a centre speaker but is does not perform as a subwoofer. Is that right?
nice find...

Correct although it goes quite low so you could get away without a sub if you aren't into explosions etc.

I just picked up some monitor Audio bronze 2 bookshelves and amp, took a while to get 'the looks' to stop but now she won't watch TV without using them.
Nice. I got a Tannoy Precision 6c in Walnut a couple of years ago. Looks great and sounds great.
I;ve got the R600, no brainer at this price
The smaller Q200c is £129, and comes in white too.
Already on the eBay. Strangely by a seller with the same name as the poster

Interesting discription because you can't transfer warranty

Seriously tempted by that... I have white q500s at the front and white e301s as rears. It already sounds pretty amazing in 4.0 the centre might look odd sitting on the floor as I can't put on a stand. £129 is very cheap though.
Im not an audiophile, but appreciate good sound. Just curious as to why the centre speaker needs to be this big if its dedicated for dialogue mainly on a 5.1 setup?
Couldn't resist... White q200 ordered
Hot, ideal for my Combine Harvester
Tannoy Precision 6C....... that is all!
Great deal
can you attach this to a phone using a 3.5mm to speaker wire (3.5mm one end - speaker wire other)

Man alive! I was seriously tempted until I saw this.

If your phone has a 100w RMS Amplifier built in...
Just wow.

It'd be very quiet. 😬

But not in walnut

I'm not sure how white would look, struggling to find pictures of setups!

Around 70% of the audio in a 5.1 system comes out of the centre speaker not just dialogue.
This is almost like stealing it... Thanks....
Will this work on its own without L/R?

In an ideal world, you would want to use identical drive units on all speakers. That way, sound should pan seamlessly from one speaker to the next and you would hear no change in timbre. Obviously in practise, in a home environment, that's not always an option but in a situation, for example, where someone uses their set up for both music and movie watching and they wish to have large speakers for left/right 2 channel stereo mode, having a tiny little centre speaker when they switch to full surround is far from ideal.

Work for what purpose exactly? If you mean like a soundbar then no. It's a single mono speaker with no internal amplification.

It should. But why?
Oooh, already have the Q700 floorstanders...
Would then need an AV instead of stereo amp tho... Great deal either way
I've got the Q200C to compliment my KEF speakers and it is very good. The 600 model is huge in comparison. Very good price but shame not in black.
Thanks OP just ordered mine and got a free 5 year warranty 😊
Q200c Black showing up at £179. is this a grab or not?
I was interested until I realised the size of this. That's an absolutely idiotic centre speaker size - good luck to anyone who has purchased lol

I'd quite like to slowly upgrade my cheap surround set up so this got my interest. My cabinet will take the q200 but ideally I'd prefer to keep smaller fronts and rears when I get round to upgrading them but will this be too much for them and be more suited to larger or floorstanding speakers? I'm not an audiophile by any means!
