Has anyone had a chance for a comparison? People seem to really like the Yamaha DSR line above the DXR, but I cannot find any good comparisons to the newest QSC line.

Sorry to be pedantic, but the QSC KW series doesn't have a .2 revision (yet). Presumably you mean the KW122?

Oops. Yes. Good catch. The QSC K12.2. Will try to edit the title.

Very few head-to-head speaker shootouts these days, I've found. Head-to-head keyboard comparos, occasionally. But not amplification for some reason.

There's a good chance that you can find a K10.2 in a Guitar Center or similar before long. Or find someone like Sweetwater who'll let you send it back if you don't like it. But I'm sure that's not going to be the case.

Any reviews or better yet head to head comparisons of the K10.2 vs other 10s (eg DXR, etc.)?

Anybody here get one yet?

I have a k8.2 and it's not bad.
It seems to not get strident as you get into limiting like the old ones.
But I'm going to take it back. It just doesn't have a natural midrange.
What's a natural midrange? I think I got spoilt using L'Acoustics recently.
JTR Noesis, Fulcrum fa28, Danley anything. $$$$
Coax is the way to go but a real mid high coax is just expensive.
I've heard lots of good things about Yamaha so I may try a DSR 112.
It's one of the last full Neo boxes out there and still tops 50 lbs.
ylAaAunderstanding with this box is that it throws nicely but really wants to
be paired with subs. SOS style. No way am I doing that.
