Re: Best speakers for Nexus Q

How about Behringer B2031P Passive Studio Monitor? I think it will be the best for Nexus Q. Features of Behringer B2031P is as followed:
  • It has a passive 2-way 150-Watt nearfield monitor along with Ultra-linear frequency response, high-resolution and ferrofluid-cooled tweeter.
  • It has Long-throw 8 3/4" woofer with special polypropylene diaphragm
  • It is Phase-optimized, low-distortion frequency crossover and has magnetically shielded so that it can be placed near computer monitors without any interruption.
It comes with Low-vibration and environment-friendly E1 MDF cabinet
Behringer B2031P Passive Studio Monitor will cost you around $260.00 and I think that it is better than Triad speakers for Nexus Q.
