”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 5 out of 5 by from Great Sounding Speakers We bought these to upgrade our old speakers. For under £200 they are fabulous and sound great, just the right amount of bass - well defined mids and no harsh toppy nonsense at all. You could spend more money. Don’t. Buy these and spend the rest on some more Vinyl LP’s.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small powerful good looking speakers They sound great and are unobtrusive in a small room. They are an upgrade for home cinema satellite speakers and we can really hear the difference when watching films and listening to music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded Surround to 3010i, Difference is Sizeable Bought these to replace my trusted q acoustics cinema 2000 5.1 package surrounds, I thought those were good, these are amazing, have definitely bought a whole new level to my surround sound movie watching experience. I am thinking these would also .ale good fronts if on a budget compared to 3020i speakers. The choice is there and thats what its all about ultimately. I have a normal sized front room, the speakers are set approx 5m apart. The effects over dolby digital and DTS surround tracks has definitely gone up a level with these and I would thoroughly recommend to have these in your demo list. They look amazingly good in English Walnut too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best speakers I bought this speakers, two weeks back. Good speakers for the price. But i recommend to buy center speaker and subwoofer for better sound effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful little speakers that pack a punch Beautiful little speakers, develop good bass for such small units. Small enough for a desktop set up but punchy enough for a living room too. The curved edges give them a sleek elegant look. I have the walnut and don't know why you would consider anything else, but each to their own!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound! I bought 4 of these along with the Q3090Ci centre speaker for my Sony Amp, surround sound system replacing my dated Wharfedale speakers. The sound quality is amazing. Just need to upgrade the subwoofer...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big, rosy sound I bought these speakers a few weeks ago and absolutely love them. Really smooth big sound which fills the room. They are paired with the Cambridge Audio One. I hear different elements in music tracks I've been listening to for years - it's fantastic. I would highly recommend the Q Acoustics 3010i speakers (paired with the Cambridge Audio One). Big, rosy and very smooth sound. A real joy and pleasure to listen to - I can't stop playing music! The speakers are placed in the kitchen which has hard surfaces and flagstone floor yet the speakers give a really rich, deep and full sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but packs a punch First of all, I'm very grateful for the customer service, these guys at Richer Sounds really know their products and are really helpful. I ordered before 4 and it came the very next day, so kudos to you! I decided to go for these speakers purely based on a lot of research and reviews, and it didn't let me down. I easily connected them to my Yamaha A-S500 amp and they sounds great! I honestly can't belive the sound quality. Great for Low-end, Jazz, Funk and even guitar-lead music. Really good quality build too. If you're aiming to hook it up to an amp, I recommend you're amp to have decent Watts (around 100), the speker (being 75W) really benefit from the power supply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-round excellence The size is ideal and the walnut surround blends well with the surrounding furniture but most importantly the sound is great. I could not have wished for better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown away.. Wow. As a professional musician for a very long time. I have heard so many speakers over the years. Not that easily impressed but these speakers have blown me away. Couldnt believe the price as these are special little units. Rigged them up at home paired with just a denon amp. And the clarity and power is phenomenal it has renewed my listening pleasure all over again. I believe in listening to songs without messing with graphics as they were originally recorded and these speakers replicate that way beyond. I will be buying another set to put on the other side of the room to get that surround sound. Thanks to richersounds norwich for your knowledge and patience while going through the speakers in the shop. No selling needed as they sold themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely built great looking and sound excellent I wanted some small bookshelf speakers for my kitchen diner and eventually decided on the Q Acoustics 3010is which I've wall mounted on the compays own brackets which are also great, the speakers are hooked up to the Denon Dm41 mini system and I am delighted with the whole package. The customer service I recieved was the icing on the cake thanks Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, can’t fault them, and a bargain price. Have just connected these speakers to a new tangent a poster amplifier and have to say the sound is excellent, good bass and treble. In fact the sound is as good as other speakers I have costing 3x as much. I am very pleased with my choice and highly recommend them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looks and rich sound I bought a pair of Q Acoustics Q3010i speakers in walnut two weeks ago. They look stylish on the sideboard and deliver a deep, rich sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound, small package. Sound brilliant hooked up to an old Technics SU-7300 amplifier. Very big sound for a small pair of speakers. They have a pleasant tenancy to stay warm even at high volumes - never getting harsh in their delivery. Plenty of power that fills a medium sized room. Very nicely put together cabinets and for those placing these near a wall, they don't tend to get boomy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grown up sound, tiny stature. I was looking for some small speakers for three bedroom and was absolutely blown away by the quality of the sound these small boxes produced during the audition and I'm happy to say they sound just as good in a home setting (after a bit of playing in). I'm used to the room filling sound of floor standing speakers so I wasn't expecting that much from a relatively cheap pair of boxes with modest driver sizes and while the Q acoustics wouldn't do the job in large rooms they are amazingly capable and thoroughly enjoyable to listen to with a wide range of music and don't need a hugely expensive amp to get good results either. Compared to some other bookshelf size speakers which tend to be a bit over bright and too forward sounding, the 3010is have a fantastically rounded and well balanced presentation with sweet detailed treble and a surprisingly deep and controlled bass response for such small cabinets. Overall, if you're looking for some speakers for a smaller space, I recommend giving a pair of 3010i a listen. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound and design I wanted a relatively compact pair of speakers for my office. Matched with the Denon DM41, the sound is excellent (for all sources, incl Bluetooth). The Q3010i speakers look superb too. The speakers are about as big as I could go for the space but it was worth it - they sound great with clarity, detail and a good bass response.
