Q Acoustics 3020 (Graphite)
Speakers Per Pair
The Q Acoustics 2000-Series was one of the most widely praised speaker ranges, picking up numerous awards throughout its life. With revisions to every aspect of that fundamentally assured design, the 3000-Series is set to take the market by storm.
Revised drive units
At the heart of the 3020 are new drive units. Starting at the top, the new Ring Dome tweeter provides a more accurate response, for precise reproduction of even the most subtle aspects of music. The tweeter unit is decoupled from the rest of the cabinet, meaning that it isn't affected by vibration from the bass unit. The new Aramid fibre/paper woofer cone is light, rigid, and helps give the 3010s their punchy, agile sound quality.
More powerful bass
With a larger diameter bass cone and increased cabinet volume, the Q Acoustics 3020 offers a noticeably more powerful sound than its little brother, the 3010. Ideal for larger rooms and/or lovers of dance, rock and full orchestral music, the 3020 brings greater dynamic realism, enhancing the feeling of 'being there'. The improved efficiency also ensures these speakers are easier to drive, making them ideal for less powerful amplifiers.
With revised cabinet bracing, the distinctive Q Acoustics cabinets have been made even better. With reduced cabinet resonance, the sound becomes less coloured and truer to how it sounded in the studio/concert venue. Uprated audiophile grade crossover components improve the transparency of sound still further.
Still distinctively designed with signature rounded cabinets, the new 3000-Series is available in a wider range of finishes than ever. Choose between Matt Graphite, Black Leather Effect or Black Lacquer for a technical look to blend well with your other hi-fi components. Alternatively, White Lacquer looks great in modern interiors. Finally, the American Walnut vinyl finish is the ideal complement for both antique and traditional furniture.
One of the finest all-round speakers available at its price and now available in five individual finishes, the only dilemma you'll have with the 3020 is which one to pick!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Igor from Great speakers! I bought these about two weeks ago, and I am pleasantly surprised. I wasn’t expecting that much from speakers in this price range, but they provide nice rich sound right out of the box. And I imagine that after couple of months they will sound even better. When I played bass heavy song - I could hardly believe what kind of sound they can produce. For a small to medium room - you won’t go wrong buying these. Have them in graphite finish, and they look great in my opinion. Magnetic grills are a nice bonus. Special thanks to very helpful staff in Lichfield, they have ordered them for me, arrived next day. Absolute pleasure dealing with you guys, as always

Rated 5 out of 5 by Onemadmanc from LOOK NO FURTHER FOR THE BARGAIN OF THE CENTURY I'm very much into perfection and decided to change my home cinema speakers as they were getting old plus with the main fronts and rear surrounds being floor standing were hogging valuable floor space in my mid sized apartment so after many months looking around, checking reviews and testing dozens of sets out I decided a trip to my local Richer sounds to look /listen to the Q Acoustics 3000 series (and a few others I'd narrowed my search down to), it was just what I needed as they are always fantastic and CANNOT be beaten in price I went to the Prestwich store and spoke to the very friendly and highly knowledgeable lad called Ben, telling him my requirements, budget and room space etc After a long and detailed discussion I find that we were both pointing at the said Q Acoustics 3020's for the fronts costing £129.99p, the 3010's for rear surrounds at £99.99p and the 3090c centre speaker costing £79.99p so I took the plunge and ordered them on the Sunday, then amazingly 2 days later they arrived at my home using the standard FREE delivery service The packaging was second to none and they all came with awesome screw in rubber mounting feet plus some very smart magnetic grills so first impressions were very good indeed I put the feet on, placed them where they were going to sit and wired them up to my trusty Yamaha Rx-v375 (also from Richer sounds) then turned it on...... WOW..... WOW......and even more..... WOW These speakers are simply stunning in every way, my ears were absolutely loving what was going in them I played a few cds including acid techno, heavy rock, piano house, Michael Jackson and some jungle then watched a few dvd's including a couple from star wars, full metal jacket, Gremlins then the Stone Roses live and was simply blown away by what I was hearing, even Ian Brown's infamously off key and often flat vocals sounded nigh on perfect,.... the detail from these is honestly mind blowing, even plugging a couple of my synths into the amp gave me a perma-smile as I could hear every single minute detail that I've only ever heard through my expensive studio monitors.... How do Q Acoustics make such high quality sounding and looking speakers for such a price is all I could think of The only thing that was missing (very much expected) was the ultra low frequencies that give that fantastic rumble of a bass line so I hooked up my studio subwoofer and held on for dear life as the whole sound left me speechless, there is no way I can turn this system on without smiling like a Cheshire cat with a bucket of fish..... It is truly sensational I've listened to many systems costing many thousands that simply do NOT come anywhere near the quality of sound from these speakers, it's left me staggered that for a little over £300 (only from Richer sounds, much dearer elsewhere as I found out) you can have such perfection If you are looking into 5.0 set of speakers (excluding the .1 for the sub) then I can very highly recommend these to anybody as they will blow you away, the clarity, response and definition is truly excellent plus they look beautiful with our without the grills I simply cannot believe that for the price the sound and aesthetics could be possible and neither can my neighbours who are all looking to buy the same set, so if you're considering them, I wouldn't look any further just go and buy them before my neighbours and family buy the rest of the stock A massive thanks again to Ben @ richer sounds and to Q acoustics for creating such a bargain

Rated 5 out of 5 by CM Cannon from Excellent sound I was given excellent advice and now enjoy the QAccoustics 3020 which give excellent balanced full sound, perfect for my flat in a small property. I am thrilled to be hearing the detail of stereophonic music again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bobstar from QAcoustics 3020 The voices are very clear and midrange very good, they don't have a very good bass response or natural sound. Not too good for music but great with movies as long as you throw (not literally) a sub woofer, centre speaker and floor standing speakers, all Q Acoustics of course, into the mix then you'll be rewarded with true cinematic audio bliss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WrongBrother from These will Not disappoint. Didn't have the space for floor standing speakers and after watching about 20 YouTube reviews of various speakers, the Q Acoustics 3020 stood out due to rave reviews. Excellent quality and sound, Great service from Richer Sounds once again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fifer2021 from Coming to life Proof that speakers need a ‘burn-in’ - these were a bit flat to start with but the bass has come to life as they have loosened off. Just listening to Telegraph Road from Love over Gold just now and they’re carrying the range really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SiF1234 from Fantastic value for Money Bought for my wife's study with a Denon micro-system. I have £1K Spendors myself, but I was amazed at the sound from these. They have a real musicality to them, you find yourself foot-tapping to white noise! And the reviews on their imaging are true - they represent a real soundstage even in a small room. And an even-handed frequency response, although I didn't notice any brightness as suggested by some reviews (but not bass heavy either). I also have Dali Opticons and have had Monitor Audios in the past, but these make music really enjoyable across a range of types (tried jazz, electronic, classical, acoustic). Maybe not the most refined drivers that you get as you go up the price range, but a gem at this price. Just makes you smile and enjoy the music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr Delighted from Brilliant speaker I've been running the 3010's for over six months now and was very impressed how such a small book shelf speaker could produce a very good sound. Then the opportunity came up to purchase the bigger brother 3020 and put the 3010 into a small bedroom system. Purchased the speakers Christmas Day 2020 and they were delivered, to my surprise and delight, a couple of days later. Excellent service Richersounds. I can see and hear why these speakers won the What Hifi award for best bookshelf some years ago. They definitely punch above their weight in sound quality. Compared to the 3010: they have the same house sound, however the bottom mids and bass have more authority. Upper mids and treble are more detailed and over all the sound stage is deeper. Dynamic is another word that comes to mind. For example playing Vivaldi four seasons recomposed by Max Richter - the bowing of the strings is better detailed and has that presence about it. When listening to The Japanese House it had a certain ambience, moodiness and feeling that I really liked plus the vocals of Amber Bain were well conveyed - just excellent. I've been trying all sorts of music types and styles out (from different sources) and the speakers always rise to the occasion and beyond my expectations - very musical. A five stars thumbs up and well worth an audition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adam2190 from Great Value Speakers I've only had the speakers for a little while but so far it seems pretty good. No distortion or anything at higher volumes and is a vast improvement sitting on my desk over the inbuilt TV speakers I've been used to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by craigsh from Sound great Bought a set of these to replace a pair of Polks. What an upgrade! Clear treble, nice punchy mids and just the right amount of bass for my tastes. If they sound this good out of the box I can't wait to hear them when they are run in :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jw66 from Q Acoustics 3020 I needed some decent speakers for my Denon RCD M41. These are previous award winners at a fair price. I'm really, really pleased with them. Richer Sounds provided good advice over the phone and they were delivered within 48 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Slurms from Nice sound, lovely pair I am no audiophile but I like what I hear from these little beauties. They look the part, are reasonably compact and sound pretty good. I've got a marantz mcr610 and use Spotify connect a lot for music. These speakers are well priced, look the business and do the trick. They are even punchy enough to sound good at low volumes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Q Acoustics makes life easy! Yes you could choose a speaker brand more suited to your taste, but for the price nothing sounds, feels and looks as good as these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MutleyM from Great sound (& they look good) Replaced some 38-year old B&Ws with these - definitely a more coherent and slightly more detailed sound. And they look good as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oldhorse from Great bookshelf's If you're looking for a nice, well priced set of bookshelf speakers, you can't go far wrong with these. Sound is excellent. Have mine as rear surrounds, they hit the mark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Howardj1503 from Nice looking & sounding affordable speaker Bought to go with NAD 316BEE Amp, 516BEE CD & AudioEngine B1 DAC. Sounds great & now punching out tunes in Son’s digs at Uni!! Checked reviews between thIs 3000 model and its more recent 3000i siblings. This more compact size and felt like really good value. Hard to fault at £119 for setting up Son’s first HiFi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by David Ackroyd from Sound great straight out of the box. I was looking for smaller speakers and these fit in well. Look great and sound great straight out of the box. I used the port plugs as only have short distance to the rear panel. So not ideal placing but they've adapted well to my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FK01 from Q Acoustic 3020 Researched the Q acoustics range and it came down to these or the smaller 3010i. Went for the slightly cheaper but bigger 3020 speakers and am so glad I did. Noticed an immediate difference in the range of sound and texture compared to my old Gale monitors. Only played them for a few hours linked up to a Sony receiver and Project turntable but my listening experience has improved dramatically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hercal from Nice looks and sound Bought this as part of my tv sound setup and I have no regrets. They look good and sound good and are a decent price. I ordered them on line and thought they'd be a bit smaller. Im not disappointed though. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChewingTheBars from Great sound for such a small speaker I thought it time to replace my old AV speakers, not that anything was wrong with them. They just big and getting on a bit. So I thought! As soon as these were hooked up you could notice the difference. Crystal clear highs and great mid tones. After some speaker setup, they seemed to get even better. Do not hesitate. A great speaker, great size, stylish and at an amazing price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ARW1 from Top class speakers Needed new speakers for my Marantz M CR611 and these are really suitable. Purchased as a package with the stands. The speakers are heavy and sit well on the stands. Price wise this outfit is low end but they provide a clear powerful sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Twoods from Simple, cheap, amazing These speakers are worth every penny, for the price you pay you get so much more than a simple bookshelf and centre speaker. The clarity, lows, miss, highs are perfect, there have been times I haven't even needed to use my sub with these. Used for movies and games and these took everything in their stride! Don't hesitate, just get them!
