Hey @Canuck31 ,

I bought an entire set in late 2017 (2x3050, 2x3020, 1x 3090c), and I'm located in Toronto. I found QA's shipping rates exorbitant so I ended up using cross border pickups - got it shipped to NY state/Niagara for free by QA and then the border pickups service brought it across for me for a nominal fee. I ended paying around CAD 1650 all in (taxes, duty, shipping included).

The least glowing Q Acoustics review by them in quite a while.

I realize that it's highly unlikely that I'll ever see/hear/own their flagship Concept 300. The review is a fun read, though. It's entertainment...right?

The three-legged stand seems to create some buzz.

That three legged stand simply wouldn't work in my room as it takes up too much real estate.

In larger homes I guess you could park subs under them!

Only the very very young can hear up to 20khz, the majority of people can barely hear 15khz.

I think I'd opt for the 3020s, especially if you are not using a subwoofer.

Of course, your ears are the only arbiter of sound quality vs cost, so you will have to make that decision for yourself.

Good question.

Here is an idea: Buy both speakers and keep the speakers that sound best to you.

Further, consider using an assistant, a helper, to connect one pair of speakers at a time to your hi-fi gear in your listening room. Use your favorite music, well-recorded music, if possible. This is all happens in the dark, of course, because you are blindfolded—you are impartial. Only your assistant knows which loudspeakers are connected to your gear at any given time. This tryout should not take long.

Now my question to you is, do you prefer the 3020 or the 3010i?

Assuming you can find the center at a similar discount it sounds like the SX50s might be the better bet on a very tight budget.

I noticed they finally have a proper sale. Thinking if its time to pick of the 3010i for my small apt. This would be a good upgrade coming from Energy Take Classics 5.1? I could also wait for the Micca's RB42 to come back in stock next month.

3020i's might be too large (deep?) for my small Brooklyn apt. I already stuffed a 65" C9 OLED.
But its something to consider.

Any viewpoints on their sat setup: 7000i ??? Curious how it would fare compared to more expensive Martin Logan 2i or B&W M1 sats?

The Q looks really nice and the drivers seem top notch. And the current sale price seems too good. But never heard of Q before.

Not much in the way of reviews, here on the forum. Saw one "unbox" video that commented on how good the sound was, but he had only had them briefly, so his opinion can probably be chalked up to "honeymoon phase". What HiFi liked them, and I find I often agree with their assessments.

One caveat, that sub (any of the three) is not the best option for HT, but should be fine for music. That said, when the speakers are so small, it requires that the sub be capable up to about 200Hz, which, almost by definition, limits it's low end extension. You won't get much below 40Hz with any of them. Also, the sub must be placed at the front of the room, near the speakers, to avoid localization. What are your bass requirements?

If they are back to the $4xx range for the 5 sats, that is a very tempting offer.

Also, add the new Monitor Audio Mass to your list of options.

Found this relatively new review:

https://h-m-entertainment.com/q-acoustics-7000i-review

and not so new:

The one owner review on Amazon US is positive as are the 8 at "Richer Sounds" which is a UK retailer.

As mentioned, pro reviews are positive as well including WhatHiFi's albeit with the subwoofer being the weak point.

As the $439 current US price thankfully does not include the subwoofer I think they are worth the leap of faith.

I too have found that WhatHiFi's admittedly short and subjective reviews have been on point for the 3 sets of speakers I've auditioned in my own home.

They said the Martin Logan LX16/Motion 15 were very good as were the Q Acoustics Concept 20s and I have to agree.

They said the KLH Albanys sucked and despite that I bought them and boy were they right so back to Crutchfield they went.

I currently have a Bose 525 kit - which has The newer cubes yet no tweeters. In honesty the kit sounds good. But could be happier with a more mid and higher range. The sub is a single 5.25 and is good - again would like a punchier bass.

I have a new Yamaha Advantage 680 AVR which I’m not using since the Bose has its own.


I’d rather not spend $1200 on Bowers M1 speakers. The $500 for the Q 5 speakers is ideal but I will get the M1 if they are worth it.

For a sub - I like the unit with dual 6.5.... again not needing a big sub.

Well, sounds like you are "deal" kind of guy, and the QAs are a real deal right now. So, I would go for it. Frankly, I doubt the M1s are any better. Should be a huge upgrade over your current set. That sub you like is the better choice of the three.

Why don't you contact QA and see if they will allow you to buy the set which includes the sub for $7xx, but substitute the 3070 for the same price? That would be an even more incredible deal.

That sub was measured by Sound & Vision and while it "only" had a -3db point of 34hz and a -6db point of 30hz no question it will be a massive improvement over a Bose Bass "module" and best of all the Q Acoustics sub measured beautifully within its frequency range which extends all the way up, nice and flat, to 174hz.

Very very few subs are that flat within their frequency range.

Certainly the well respected on AVS RSL Speedwoofer 10 they measured at the same price as the Q Acoustics sub did not.

Stupid question, will the Q Acoustics 3000 Series Black Speaker Stands hold the 3020i's? I ask because didn't the newer i series are 25% larger. Not sure if Q updated the stands. Also can someone recommend an alt stand? Since the 3020i are on sale I might treat myself to a pair. Coming from Take Classics 5.1 I think it would be a nice upgrade.

These get recommended often (taller version available):

https://www.amazon.com/Monolith-Inch...SIN=B076HX81WZ

The QA stands should be just fine with the new 3020i ...these are specifically designed for the "i" series:

The 3000i stands Ray linked are actually decently prices as that is what Sanus wants for their somewhat less fancy steel stands.

These are a bit taller and made of wood and MDF if you want to save a few bucks.

https://www.crutchfield.com/p_051NF3...k-lacquer.html

The manual indicates the 3000i stand allows you to screw the speaker into the stand with what seems to be built in screw holes in the bottom of the speakers.

Thanks! As a base for a 5.1 in an 11'x10' room would 3010i's be enough?

For music, home theater or both?

BTW, I have read of peeling vinyl issue in the Polk Signature thread so no manufacturer is immune.
I was excited to setup my S20 signature series Polk's. That is exactly what happened to me. They placed a cardboard placard on the top exactly where the seam is(speaker covered with vinyl wrap). I went to carefully remove it and the speaker wrap came off with it. Back it goes. FWIW I also ordered S35 center speaker. There was an air bubble on the top. I pressed it down and it smoothed out as if it were never there. So much for quality control. How could they be that stupid to put that placard right on the seem? I am sure they have had people complaining but they just don't care I guess.
