”The 3030is are yet another excellent speaker from Q Acoustics. They deserve a place on the shortlist.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

A new size, from an award-winning range

Pitched between the 3020i and 3050i, both of which are multiple award-winners, the 3030i could prove to be the perfect-sized Q Acoustics speaker for you. Large enough to deliver a smooth, powerful bass but small enough to fit neatly on a stand, the 3030i strikes the ideal compromise between sound and size.

The most powerful-sounding, 3000i standmount speaker
Taking its bass woofer from the larger 3050i, the 3030i delivers a deeper, more powerful bass than any previous 3000-Series standmount speaker. This not only means you get higher volumes and a more spacious sound in larger rooms but also enhanced music dynamics. This makes everything from a full orchestra to a stadium rock concert sound much more true-to-life.

De-coupled tweeter for superior detail
Because the bass woofer is so powerful, the tweeter unit is decoupled from the rest of the cabinet, meaning that it isn't affected by bass vibration. The soft dome tweeter delivers a top-end that’s both smooth and detailed.

Braced cabinet for low distortion
Using CAD (Computer Aided Design), the cabinet makes use of Q Acoustics’ unique point-to-point bracing. This gives the best support, exactly where it’s needed, making the cabinet as rigid as possible. A rigid cabinet means low resonance and low resonance equals low distortion, making your music sound more natural.

Four finishes to suit your style
With its distinctively designed, rounded cabinets, the 3030i is a stylish speaker. Choose between four different finishes and you can get the look that’s perfect for your home. Choose between Graphite Grey and Carbon Black for a technical look to blend well with your other hi-fi components. Alternatively, Arctic White looks great in modern interiors. Finally, the English Walnut vinyl finish is the ideal complement for both antique and contemporary wooden furniture.

Optional stands available
To get the best sound from the 3030i speakers, we recommend the matching 3030i Stands. These not only match the speakers’ style but also complement the acoustics, enhancing the bass timing and sound staging.

If you love a big sound from a smaller speaker, the Q Acoustics 3030i is the speaker for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Dialogue Clarity & An Amazing Improvement My previous budget home audio setup suffered in the dialogue department and it was hard to hear quieter voices especially for those whose struggled to hear in the first place. This resulted in loud volumes, problems with dynamic range and not being able to watch certain content. After speaking to James at the Edinburgh store over a video call (which was very convenient as I live three hours from the store), to see my setup and see if there were any settings or configuration I needed to do, we determined that buying new speakers would provide the needed improvement. He was very helpful and agreed with my desire to upgrade from my budget Jamo speakers to the Q Acoustics 3000 line with two Q3030is and a Q3090Ci since they had good reviews from my research and would fit well with my interior. I booked an appointment in store and went to demo them. While I couldn't demo the exact configuration I wanted (since the 3030is were direct to order), they managed to get as close as possible and the demo experience was excellent. James had everything set up for us and he took care of everything after handing over the USB stick I had preloaded with problematic dialogue content. We were blown away at the difference. Everything was so much clearer even at lower volumes. We could both hear every word and didn't need to turn the volume up. It resulted in a much more pleasurable listening experience since I don't like listening at too high a volume and it was much less fatiguing. There was far more separation from the three speakers even when positioned close to each other. We were convinced this was the upgrade we wanted and the purchase process was very easy. James was great to talk to and chat about music and TV in general as well as helpful about how to configure levels since my AV receiver doesn't have auto callibration. Delivery was so quick. In fact, I had to delay delivery because even though we purchased around 4PM, some of our delivery would be delivered the next day and we were worried we wouldn't be back home in time. Even the direct from manufacturer order was due to be delivered the day after that. All the contents were packaged well. It was easy to unbox and put into place. Once we'd turned on our TV, we will still blown away as we were in the store. Extremely happy with our purchase and it just goes to show you don't need to spend the earth to get an awesome audio experience. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound I purchased these speakers in January on the recommendation of Mac at Preston branch. They have replaced a pair I happily used for nearly 40 years with a Rotel amplifier. I use them mainly for classical music with my cd player and the sound quality is exceptional. I am delighted with my purchase and most satisfied with the advice and service I received from Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great if your not allowed a sub woofer! Had these a couple of weeks now. Really pleased with them. I've tried the monitor audio bronze 100's but these just sound more pleasant overall. The low bass is ever so slightly muddier but they buck the current trend for really bright treble that seems to overpower my ears. They are on the warm side which I love. I found the monitor audios tiring after a while and just a bit empty sounding in the mid range. They look fantastic for cheaper speakers as well which went down well with the wife. Thanks to everybody at RS cheltenham. Really patient, friendly and knowledgeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the extra over 3020i for the bass Really happy with the improvement over the 3020i which are now my rear speakers - worth the space/money difference. I have the subwoofer as well and it sounds a lot more balanced and realistic with the bigger speakers. They look really unique, best looking ones in the store

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic build, beautiful sound Beautiful speakers look fantastic in walnut. Seems relatively unfussy about positioning and have fantastic slightly warm tone. Huge detail and well controlled bass. Best speakers I've ever had. They are quite deep, so beware if putting on a bookshelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real Winner. From the moment I opened the box I knew I had a quality product. I have purchased HiFi equipment for over 50years now and I know quality when I see and hear It. These speakers are produced to a high standard, like the Q Acoustic speakers I have bought in the past. My go to album for initial sounding is Steely Dan Aja. It takes a lot to impress me and for the price you always wonder where they made the cost cuts. From the first track, on vinyl the sound was very impressive, clear and direct throughout the frequency range. I just could not stop playing music of all types and all formats and the sound put a big smile on my face. For the price these speakers are remarkable and as good as some much more expensive units. These are quite new to the marketplace but if you want an excellent sound from a bookshelf speaker then give these a try. Well done Q Acoustics you've managed to give value for money.
