”It's the baby in Q Acoustics’ recently launched Q3000i range, and among the finest speakers you can buy for this money.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review.

Improved cabinet for even lower distortion

At the heart of these revised speakers is a much-improved cabinet. P2P (Point-to-Point) bracing is now deployed to enhance rigidity and reduce cabinet distortion. Reducing cabinet distortion lets the drive units operate at their optimum, giving a cleaner, purer sound.

Revised drive units
With their newly developed surrounds, the bass units are even more accurate and faster to respond. The coated paper woofer cone is light, rigid, and helps give the 3010i’s their punchy, agile sound quality. The tweeter units are decoupled from the rest of the cabinet, meaning that the treble isn’t affected by vibration from the bass unit. With clarity and purity of sound at their heart, the 3010i’s are amongst the most natural-sounding speakers in their class.

Ideal for smaller rooms and home cinema
At a height and depth of just over 25cm, these compact speakers are perfect for a wide range of applications. Ideal for smaller rooms or even desktop systems, the 3010i’s give an impressively full range sound – even without a separate subwoofer. Alternatively, if you’re looking for top quality home cinema sound, the 3010i’s make ideal satellite speakers – especially when combined with the matching sub and centre speakers from the 3000i-Series.

Four finishes to suit your style
With its distinctively designed, rounded cabinets, the 3010i 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.

One of the finest small stereo speakers in its class and equally impressive as part of a home cinema system, the Q Acoustics 3010i raises the class standard yet again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A step down in size; a step up in quality My previous speakers had done sterling work for a couple of decades. But when the time came to replace them, it was also a chance to opt for something more compact and visually appealing. The big surprise, though, was how much the sound of the new speakers improved upon the old. Details emerged for the first time and the overall cleanliness of the sound and swiftness of the transients were audibly in a different league. These speakers have re-kindled my pleasure in ranging through my CD collection and I look forward to many hours of hearing old friends in a new light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Replaced a set of Tannoy Surround Speakers with these and others of the same range. Should have done it sooner. What a difference in sound quality, not only with music but with films also. I find that the build quality is very good and for the price i find it hard to believe you would get better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking speakers with a nice detailed sound I really like this set of speakers, they're a perfect size for my needs (on a desk for PC use) and look very clean and modern with nice chrome accents. The sound is very detailed, and suitably deep enough bass considering their small size. I have however had an issue with feet being different thicknesses, although Q Acoustics have been quick to acknowledge this and are working at getting a replacement sorted which is also reassuring from a customer service perspective

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound I purchased these speakers to go with my new Yamaha CRXN470 CD player and Project turntable and they suit each other perfectly! The sound quality is great and easy to adjust to suit the various audio inputs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome speaker at a great price I brought the Q Acoustics Q3010i for my dinning room to replace my Cerwin Vega VS10. I’ve had the VS10 for almost 25 years, these have been amazing are still are… but they where just too big for the dinning room… so to find something of equal quality but compact that I could mount on the wall was a challenge, but I decided to go with the Q Acoustics Q3010i with their own mounting brackets Q Acoustics 3000WB. Brackets simple enough to mount, although the speakers themselves are reasonably small they are a reasonable weight, so you can see why these need a bespoke mounting brackets. The speakers are awesome, not as much low end as the VS10, but the VS10 are known for their exceptional base. The Q Acoustics Q3010i pack a punch, and I also love the clarity at the higher end too, although you do need to drive the amp just a litter harder than the VS10, but when you think of the drivers in the Q Acoustics Q3010i, they are smaller (two drivers) so you would need more electrical energy to get the same audio energy from them, compared to the VS10 (with three drivers). For price and quality, very much recommended and always great service from Richer Sounds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Speakers Great sounding speakers to add I to my 5.1 set up. Unfortunately it looks like one of the. Has a slight fault only apparent during certain types of audio. However, customer service have been very helpful in sorting out the problem. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clarity and depth of sound Was looking for a budget pair of speakers to go with my Rega Planer 3 deck. The clarity of sound is impressive even at low sound levels. Turn the volume up and they come into their own working well with my new deck and 40 year old amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and a great look! I’d been looking at Q Acoustics for a while and these are an upgrade on what I had planned to buy. Fabulous purchase - very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, amazing value! What was a £200 speaker just months ago is now only £119 and boy do you get great sound for your money. Sound per British pound these speakers must deliver better sound than any other speaker on the planet. It’s amazing to get something so good for so little!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, looks good and a good price I bought these just before Christmas and they had to fit 3 criteria. First was that they had to look good ! Important in a shared family area. Second, the price had to fit my budget and finally, the quality had to be good. I'm not disappointed on any counts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not bad at all Bought as part of the 5.1 package and weren’t too bad but seemed to be a bit lacking in the front channels, excellent as a rear channel speaker though. Replaced the front speakers in my setup with my MA Bronze 2 and problem solved. Decided to try them hooked up to my receiver as zone 2 speakers and placed further out towards the corners of my room with a slight toe in. It completely changed the sound and for the better, no subwoofer running in zone 2 either and the low end is more than acceptable for a speaker of this size at moderate volume and the mid and higher ranges are impressive. I still feel that they deserve a 5 star review as they are brilliant rear channel speakers in my setup and have redeemed themselves as a stereo pair for enjoying music, I might try the 3020i for my front channels and return my MA speakers back to their rightful place on my Hi-Fi. Still, I’m going to try pushing them a little harder tomorrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love them Bought to replace the front L and R speakers that came with my Canton 75 5.1 package which were great with movies but I just couldn’t stand to listen to music with them, so harsh and tiring. The Q’s sounded great out the box and as the week or so since receiving them has gone on they just sound better and better. I’m spending so much time listening to music I just love listening to them and luckily their sound seems to fit into my surround set up perfectly. i could not be happier with them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good sound and case design Needed new speakers for redecorated lounge, pleasing smooth and neat design of the Q Acoustics was ideal, good sound too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality and sound I purchased these approx 1 month ago and found the staff in the shop very helpful in advise given. As my budget was not on the top end of the scale , I feel the sound on these provided when connected to a Sonos Amplifier is amazing and gives good clarity. I only have the volume at the lower levels normally as I have to resepct my neighbours but if needed these can be quite loud and still remain clear . Good product and an excellent price / service from Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Q Acoustics Q3013l Having read the reviews and listened to them at the Richersounds shop, I bought this pair of speakers a few weeks ago. As they were to heavy for me to carry, they were delivered in quick time free of charge. It is early days, but I am pleased with the looks and sound of them. This is the third time I have dealt with Richersounds and I am always very pleased with the service, advice and price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound brilliant! I've had these speakers for a couple of weeks and I love them. Nice crisp punchy bass and lots of clarity in the mid range. Just a great pair of speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound and Styish Downgraded my speakers as i wanted to move away from floor standing to wall mounted. After setting up using the 3000WB wall brackets they looked great. I really like the curved edges and the graphite colour, very modern and stylish. Now i paired these up with my new Sony amp (SD1080) and wow what a result. The sound from such a small package is amazing. Clear and surprisingly bassy for the size. Very happy i would recommend if looking for small quality speakers.
