Quad 12L active vs Wharfedale Precision 8D Active

If you have experience with either or both of these speakers I would very much appreciate hearing your opinion. Which would be better for low-mid volume level nearfield desktop listening? Thanks in advance.

I don't know the two you mention and I am sure they are good but to add to your list I suggest you check out NHT SOO/MOO, which is a popular active option for a desktop PC audiophile quality sound.

Chuck Ainlay , Producer/Engineer of Dire Straits etc., endorses them - so don't take my word for it - but they must be pretty good.
