I just put in an order for the 3020i/3090Ci combo in white. 5% off and 3 free pairs of speaker cables normally priced at $85/each. I guess nobody is buying these $85 cables so they are throwing them in free...lol. Anyway, I'll post up when I get these and get a few miles on them. Hopefully by next weekend.

Quite impressive.

https://www.soundstagehifi.com/index...i-loudspeakers

https://www.soundstagenetwork.com/in...nts&Itemid=153

Frequency response and sensitivity
Sensitivity: 87.8dB (averaged 300Hz-3kHz on Listening Window, 2.83V/1m)

Chart A: 20Hz - 20kHz (measured @ 2m, plotted @ 1m)

Top curve: on-axis response
Middle curve: 15 degrees off-axis response
Bottom curve: 30 degrees off-axis response


They had some good things to say about the 3020i which pretty much is my experience with the 3020i's

"The biggest surprise the 3020i’s had in store for me was in the treble. They didn’t sound bright, but they sounded brighter and more extended than the 3050i’s. As a result, voices popped to the fore far more than through the 3050i’s, instruments such as cymbals were much more apparent, and the increase in high-frequency detail made it a bit easier to hear precise positionings of aural images on the soundstage. At first, all of this took me aback -- after all, the same tweeter was used in both speakers. But after some playing around, I hit on what might have caused the difference I heard: that tweeter’s height. Typically, the ideal height for the tweeter of a speaker is 36” to 39” above the floor, which puts the tweeter at about ear level for most seated listeners. I measured 31” from the floor to the center of the 3050i’s’ tweeters -- that’s low. But from the little 3020i’s’ perches on the shelving unit, the centers of their tweeters were 40” above the floor -- a smidgen high, but closer to the ideal. They sounded it. More important, the absolute difference in tweeter heights in these setups was 9”, which is a lot. No wonder these two Q models sounded so different in the highs in the same room and system: the 3050i’s’ tweeters were firing into my chest, but the 3020i’s’ tweeters were aimed at the tops of my ears."

"Hands down, the 3020i is a winner. It’s wonderfully styled, looks beautiful in Artic White, and sounds superb -- dynamic, clean, smooth, open, extended on top, and with as much bass reach as you can expect from so small a speaker. For $299.99/pair, it’s as good a deal as Paradigm’s Monitor Atom SE at a nearly identical price.

My hands go down somewhat more cautiously for the 3050i. "

Looking forward to your impressions as all but one have been positive thus far and nobody has reviewed the 3090ci yet.

Q Acoustics worries me a little now to be honest, but not because of their 3000i series but for the ridiculous pricing of the new Concept 300s and their cable which tells me they might be losing the price/value plot.

The replacements for the Concept 20s and Concept 40s had best not be more of the same in terms of low value and hopefully they'll come out with a dual 5.25" center for the "lower level" Concept series replacement.

I'll be testing the KLH Albany's in the next month or two and if they measure up to the Concept 20s I tested here, (which were excellent), the wood veneer and larger center just might have me telling my friends to get KLH vs the original thought of the 3000is. They should be in there new home by July after losing theirs in the October 2017 Santa Rosa fires.

We'll see.

Yes, mirrors your impressions almost to the T.

Still scratching my head about the lone AVS member who tried them briefly and found them "honky' which nobody else has come close to mentioning.

But, then again, he preferred the JBL 230 which you found just "OK" but a great buy when on heavy discount.

As top the 3050i tweeter location at 31" that is rather low; my Usher V602's are perfect at 36".

Nothing that a small plinth wouldn't fix of course.

I received the 3020i/3090Ci speakers today and have been running them for a little while now to get them loosened up. Out of the box they sound, in comparison to the 2020i, a little smoother on the top end and a little fuller on the bottom end. Not really going to do any serious listening for a while, but eventually I will A/B them directly with the 2020i. I will say the white cabinets with light grey magnetic grilles look pretty slick.

Looking forward to further impressions.

For the life of me I can't find an address for Q Acoustics in the US.

Can you look at the shipping or maybe take a photo so I can add them to my list of ID companies in the US?

Thanks.

Then keep scratching your head. -- as they do honk for me and are boxy sounding -- do we all need to hear the same? There is also another member at another forum who found them boxy sounding. And I still prefer the JBL over the Q A.

I also like them better than the 2020i speakers -- their outside finish beats up a lot of speakers

Thanks.

Yes, it seems they are a customer of these guys not a stand alone Q Acoustic office.

So their physical footprint in the US from an administrative standpoint appears to be zero so will not add them to my list as there's nothing to see/hear there.

Thanks.

Makes sense just to have a small warehouse, fulfillment center in USA rather than a whole big office, warehouse, CS, etc....

Hello Q Acoustics,

I'm curious: Will Q Acoustics be represented at AXPONA (Audio Expo North America) this year? AXPONA is the largest high-end audio show in North America: http://www.axpona.com/.

Thank you.

Hi dbPlan,



The Q Acoustics Concept 500 speakers will be used by Cambridge Audio @ AXPONA this year. Cambridge Audio will be in booth 534 where you pop in and have a listen.

Thanks for your reply, Q Acoustics. Sounds like fun. Will the Concept 500 loudspeakers be connected to a Cambridge Audio Edge Series amplifier? Additionally, do your audio engineers like the more affordable Q Acoustics 3020i and Cambridge Audio CXA60 combo?

By the way, I really enjoyed this recent interview with Mr. Alex Munro (Q Acoustics) at https://www.stereolifemagazine.com/i...ro-q-acoustics.

Hi dbPlan,

The Q Acoustics Concept 500 speakers will be paired with the Cambridge Edge Series we have confirmed.


We have consulted Alex Munro and he confirms the Q Acoustics 3020i paired with the Cambridge Audio CXA60 would be a very good combination.

Concept 20s again just $400 at the moment.

Great speakers, great price.

For some reason when I first saw this pic I thought it looked like a couple of toasters. I think it's because they are about that size and we have a black toaster with a reflective finish like this Concept 20.

Admittedly from the side they do look a little odd but you'd never notice viewing them straight ahead from a couch.

The exaggerated depth I'm guessing is a design choice to present a more compact frontal view.

My friend has them playing without a sub in a 2.0 setup and they sound marvelous even without a sub.

Without a sub they are better than the LX16s that I have and tested them against.

We have consulted Alex Munro and he confirms the Q Acoustics 3020i paired with the Cambridge Audio CXA60 would be a very good combination.

Thank you, Q Acoustics, for answering my questions.

In your opinion, gajCA, why does the Concept 20 sound better than the LX16?

Does your friend use their dedicated stands?

To my ear they are very close but as the Concept 20s are back to just $400/pair I'd recommend them highly.

My friend has his Concept 20s in awful head height position in a large book case and they still sound good playing full range.

No need to get the Concept stands though I do use them with my LX16s!

Is anyone here from Canada who owns this brand of speakers? The website claims that they cannot ship anything over 70 pounds to Canada. Well two of their entry level floor standing speakers would be over 70 pounds. I'm wondering how you were able to order them if that is the case.

Did you try to contact/message their Atlanta, Georgia, address?

It seems shipping rates to other locations are negotiable at Reverb.com.
Here's the link—https://reverb.com/item/4035197-q-ac...k#policies-tab

Note their Special Conditions; maybe QA will chime in.

Not yet. Perhaps I will tomorrow. It's pretty late here now.
