Each one's biography almost always tell a story of a company established aeons ago, who undoubtedly thrived on the back of then innovative products. Plenty of audiophiles pledge loyalty to these brands, which is why it's incredibly hard for new companies to gain traction.

watts of Class D amplification. Q Acoustics wanted to the 2000i series to add to a room's
look, and not take away from it. It's for this reason they've concealed the
speaker terminals from plain sight, and this diligence extends beyond the
speakers to their accessories.
