I’m no audiophile, just enjoy good clear sound. I have recently purchased a pair of handsome piano black R3s to replace a slightly damages set of q300 speakers from 2011.
First observation is that technology has certainly moved on. The q300s were always pleasing but don’t come close to the depth and clarity of the R3s. There is also a lovely bass, just enough impact without any muddy boom.
Occasionally a bit too bright sounding in the vocal frequencies, but this is probably due to the amp I am using a Denon AVR3400. But the overall results are great and I’m very pleased I bought these speakers. It’s opened a new chapter in music listening. They have set my music alight! These speakers also alerted me to the very good sound quality achievable via Apple Music. They convey every detail so well. Details did not even hear before.
