Couple of Waldorf synths here...

I wouldn't really look to the Q for wavetable sounds, as wavetables were added later on in the Q's development cycle, almost as an afterthought. It's better used for glassy, hifi, digital sounds.

The XT has a completely different character entirely, and it is built from the ground up to be a very well specced wavetable synth. It's very raw and in your face, but can also be quite smooth sounding if you want it to be. That all depends on which wavetable/filter/quality combination you throw at the engine. Out of all of the synths in my arsenal, the XTk is the only one that is 100% digital, and I don't see it going anywhere anytime soon.
