Hi. How does this compare to the Bowers & Wilkins 684 Theatre?
Obviously the price point is miles apart but what about the sound quality?
Are they comparable? Or different leagues?

They are probably very similar. You may hear a difference but this may not necessarily be a good thing.

I would stay clear from B&W in principal. B&W (and several other 'British' speaker manufacturers) are trading as a high-end British speaker manufacturer - yet a lot of their kit (definately the 684s) is made in China). No issue with China but the price does not reflect this.

Speakers made in China are not 'crafted' - they're made by some lowly-paid labourer.

At least Q Acoustics are honest enough and their price reflect the product.

My own opinion would be to go for the Q Acoustics and save a packet with the additional benefit of not supporting B&W making their stuff in China for silly money.

Do audition both though with your music source and music material.

The fact that these B&W speakers are made in China does not bother me.
I care about the performance of the speaker set.

Within a few days there are have been two surround speaker systems reviewed on TR and both have been highly praised. My question is how do they compare?

Hopefully we will here from Danny Phillips who reviewed both sets.

Why is the gloss white an extra £150!

You can't compare those two because of the price difference. It's like comparing a Jaguar with a Maserati. They're both excellent, but the second one is the most expensive.

Apple probably patented "white", and so royalties must be paid per ml of paint used.

Wasn't this package released back in October 2011? Some kind of tech timewarp?
