REVOLUTIONARY CABINET DESIGN


Key to the ecstatic reviews of the Q Acoustics Concept 20 speakers is the cabinet design. Unlike any other design, anywhere near this price point, the Concept 20 speakers uses a unique cabinet isolation design. Effectively, the Concept 20 speaker offers a cabinet within a cabinet, separated by a special resonance cancelling compound called Gelcore. This construction style of cabinet massively reduces the resonance or 'voice' of the cabinet, meaning you get far less distortion. Proved to work by laser measurement, the Concept 20 simply sounds clearer, more natural and a whole lot more expensive than its price tag would suggest.

SMOOTH TREBLE RESPONSE

Matching up to such an impressive cabinet is no easy feat, but the driver units don't let the side down. The soft dome tweeter has a smooth and refined sound that, although detailed, never becomes harsh. The tweeter unit is also decoupled from the rest of the cabinet, meaning that it isn't affected by vibration from the bass woofer unit - yet another impressive touch at this price.

CONSISTENT BASS

The bass unit may be small, but its long-throw design also offers up a surprising amount of power for its size. What's more, it's the quality of the bass content that's hard to fault. Precisely timed, textured and consistent, the bass and mid-range response are truthful to the sound at all times.

STYLISH DESIGN

Big enough to fill a room with sound but small enough not to overwhelm it, the Concept 20s are ideally judged speakers. With their rounded corners they further soften their visual impact in your home. Choose between gloss white or gloss black for the perfect match.

Once in a while a hi-fi product comes along that redefines the class standard. The Concept 20 is just that product. If you're looking for speakers around this price, the Concept 20s simply have to be heard!

Speaker Enclosure Type
Type of speaker enclosure. Infinite baffle cabinets are sealed and so are often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power to drive, though. Bass reflex speakers are usually more efficient than infinite baffle designs but may require more care in terms of placement. Rear port designs, in particular, usually need at least 15-30cm (6 - 12 inches) between them and the wall behind, for a balanced bass response.
Bass reflex - rear port
Rated 4.9 out of 5†by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5†by Definitely live up to their 5-star review. The sound is so crisp and clear and combined with the Sony Map S1 they pump out some amazing sound, especially for their size. At full volume the bass could be a little 'larger' but it's only expected for their size. Very pleased though and look great. 30 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Accoustics bookshelf speakers These speakers represent great value for bookshelf speakers. II replaced a pair of aged Celestion Ditton 15's and I am very pleased with the quality of the sound. They may not be great with a really upmarket system but should be good with mid price good quality systems 18 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Superb sounding speakers. Audiophile quality sound from a small footprint speaker. Replaced Dali 1 Zensor with these and now after a few days the difference is noticeable. Vinyl seems more alive, and I'm hearing more from my CDs too. Have bi-wired and am blown away. Mine are wall mounted on brackets so I've used the foam bungs in the rear ports to stop any boomy sound. Very pleased. Richer sounds great as usual. 02 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5†by Beautiful speakers, shame about the damage I have wanted these speakers ever since I heard a demo at Richer's over a year ago. The VIP £50 off voucher gave me the impetus to go and finally get them. So it was with some sadness that upon carefully unpacking them I discovered that one of the tweeter domes was pushed in. Being quite heavy and having walked them back from the store I didn't particularly want to take them back the following weekend having waited so long for them. So I carefully eased the dome back to it's original shape (almost) and decided to live with it. These speakers need a lot of running in, but after a couple of weeks I am already noticing the improvement. I just hope the damaged tweeter doesn't affect the sound too much. But I am disappointed with the quality control on a £350 "quality" speaker. Perhaps next time I should check them in the store. 29 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by dont think about getting these speakers just get them I was not sure about getting these speakers then i got VIP voucher for £50 off speakers over £300.I got them on saturday11april connected them bye wire.running them in about 2 days 48hrs ish.I have not stopped grinning.every part of the music is full tight and detailed .I live in a small flat so you got to play around with posioning just play around with that and you will love them like i do.JUST GET THEM. 13 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Excellent speakers. After I retired I decided to update my Marantz amp, Pioneer CD player and Tannoy speakers for the Marantz 6005 amp and CD player and the Concepts. At first the Concepts were ok but I wondered if I had been rash on my splurge; but by the second and following days they opened up and I could really understand what the raves were all about. Whereas my bigger speakers were great at higher volumes when the mid range, bass and treble equalised, the Concepts are fantastic at all levels. The bass may not be as big as the Tannoys but it is more than adequate and far superior in quality. I am able to pick out individual notes without them resonating into each other. Up the volume and it's wow! I am now listening to my old CDs afresh and even liking the songs I didn't care for earlier. I bought them without a studio hearing but am more than happy with my purchases. Besides, I did get a good deal on the package and excellent service from Richer Sounds. 29 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Brilliant speakers These get better and better. I've owned a pair with matching stands for 6 months and they continue to amaze me. In fact, they seem to improve more over time and I can't think of any reason to upgrade right now. The bass, though not ultra-deep, is beautifully defined and the soundstage is wide and totally immersive. Take care with positioning and you'll be rewarded with a punchy, balanced, well-defined and non-fatiguing sound. Highly recommended! 12 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5†by Excellent These speakers have great clarity, you can really hear each strand of the music. They have great rhythm and timing. They are better than more expensive speakers. Compact yes, that's a benefit. Lack of bass, no way its clear foot tapping bass as opposed to muddy bass which some bigger speakers deliver. 20 January 2015
