B&W 805's VS Quad 12L speakers


Which would be the better bookshelf speaker?

I know the Quads are cheeper, these would be put about one foot from the back wall on stands. Used with a sub too.

My amp is an Accuphase P-300 and C-200 combo, which puts out huge clean power, and will make any woofer bark to it fullest.

Are the Quads in the same league as the 805's

I have not heard either.

Thanks for any comments.
You'll get different sound from these tweeters. The B&W will be punchier with more bass response, and the Quad will be faster with more transparency.

Pick your poison
There is a pair of 805 signatures with Grey/Black tiger striping for sale here on Audiogon. They are $3000 including stands. I would grab these in a heartbeat if I were looking into 805s.

Just a thought
