Q Acoustics Q3020i (Walnut)
Speakers Per Pair
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 3020i’s their deep, punchy 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 power and purity of sound at their heart, the 3020i’s are amongst the most dynamic sounding speakers in their class.
Big sound from a small speaker
With a larger diameter bass cone and increased cabinet volume, the Q Acoustics 3020i offers a more powerful sound than its little brother, the 3010i. Ideal for larger rooms and/or lovers of dance, rock and full orchestral music, the 3020i 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.
Four finishes to suit your style
With its distinctively designed, rounded cabinets, the 3020i 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.
Whatever your taste in music, the Q Acoustic 3020i will suit – just choose the colour and prefer to be dazzled.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RJS Devon from Happy with sound, value & advice. Great speakers, good sound paired with a Tangent Ampster for both TV and playing music. Decent bass with enough top-end to prevent sounding top or bottom heavy. Have to say, REL subwoofer does make a difference improving the sound even more. Have used for years a pair of Mission Renaissance speakers bought in the 1980's, and have always loved those. Comparing the two, happy to say the Q3020i stood the test. Richer Sounds Exeter, helpful as ever and delivered with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DMrMidnite from More than capable, just WOW!! Thanks to London Bridge branch. Robin I believe (sorry slipped my mind) . Bought this about 2 week ago. Makes you appreciate the production of good music. My flat is not small and neither is it big. These speakers fill up the room. Running it with the Sony str-dn1080. The combo is amazing. Good cable is a must with good banana plugs (chord company c screen) Did them myself. The speakers are on a cabinet. The sound stage is amazing. Bass on tracks you have heard before but never heard that low, low bass. It can bring that out. The mids are at the fore front. Highs are clean without sounding tinny. I am no audiophile but can appreciate quality sound. If I can describe it I would say they are mature sounding speakers. Definitely a long investment and I know they will give me a long term pleasure of high quality sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Funkamatic44 from Perfect sound Q Acoustics 3020i bookshelf speakers firstly are beautiful to look at in the English walnut finish. The sound is greatly balanced. Previous speakers have been far too bass heavy which led to distortion. We have found beautiful balance of bass treble and overall sound. I am sure this is helped by having quality speaker cables and plugs by Cambridge audio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PungentPewes from Beautiful speakers for the money. Bought these the other week. Sound great from the money. Also having the magnetic dust filters is a great bonus as the face of this speaker is gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JasonL from Nice speakers Bought them to replace an older pair of Qs so I knew what to expect. Nice sound and I agree with the reviews of these, great value for money. Had them a week and they are improving as they settle in. As always, Richer Sounds were great. Who even buys speakers anywhere else!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frank71 from Great little speakers! I purchased the speakers a couple of weeks ago as I needed speakers that would work well in a small room. They look lovely, are well made and sound very clear, with the bass not overwhelming the sound. I would definitely recommend these speakers. Also, Richer Sounds’ online ordering and delivery service was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Richf90 from Great speakers. I bought these as a package along with a Denon M41 mini system. I wanted something that wasn't too expensive and not to big that would deliver rich clean sound for my vinyl and CD collection. These speakers fit the bill perfectly. Very pleased with the whole package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by K2Andy from Great look, great sound Bought these speakers to replace speakers that came with 25 yr old system , I'm no audiophile but they sound great to me a definite improvement on the old ones. Clearer and more punchy, with good base especially for the size of speaker. They look good too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wolf W from Lovely sound and looks to match I already owned the 3010i speakers and the 3020i's live up to expectation. They are perfectly matched to my Marantz amplifier giving a rich, warm sound that I can listen to for hours. Service and delivery from Richer Sounds as excellent as always.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gjcooper from Beautifully made. Solid bass from large cabinets. Didn’t gel with my amp. Sounded a bit hard and metallic at higher end. Gave them a few days to see if any improvement. Was better on some tracks but not my cup of tea ultimately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Revsound from Great look, good sound These are very tidy looking speakers and with the grilles off look far classier than others in the price range. The sound is great - good detail for acoustic music, plenty of bass - a plucked double bass sounds notably good. Though they maybe don't excite when playing more complex rock. Maybe the 3030i bigger brothers would be better for that. They are deep so might cause problems on a bookshelf. But I'm putting them on stands. The only negative is that being so deep, some stands might be have too small a top plate and the Q Acoustic stands to match (the speakers bolt to them) are £130+ which isn't good value for a few metal plates and tubes. (I'm making my own.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Name from Q Acoustics 3020i Purchased as a combined Christmas and birthday present. Very helpful staff on the phone talked me through what I need, including 3000 series stands which these now sit nicely on. Have paired with QED 79 strand cables. I had a very old pair of Aiwa speakers so I knew this was going to be a step up and I wasn't mistaken. The clarity of the sound via my Sony turntable is beautiful. The richness the base gives my music means I am hearing it better than I ever have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lusengo56 from They look great in the sitting room. Having bought these a couple of weeks ago, l'm still running them in and hopefully the sound is going to get better with time though they do sound sound incredibly good so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JebusListens from Amazing Value Speakers I bought these speakers to pair with my old turntable and amplifier that I recently dusted off. I didn't want to spend a fortune and these 3020i's from Q Acoustics are not only solidly built but also sound fantastic. I was already looking at these as an option when my Brother and a close friend who both love their music told me that they also have Q Acoustics speakers and love them. I took the plunge and am not disappointed. If you are on a budget but want a pair of well constructed and good performing speakers then you will not go wrong with these. Lastly, I love the quality walnut veneer finish too but other finishes are available to suit the style and decor of your room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sj1001 from It works for me I purchased these speakers to go either side of a 9 foot wide shelving unit with my chair some 10 feet in front to listen to my eclectic mix of cd's and radio through a 50 w pc pioneer streaming receiver, Bass sound is more than adequate for my needs and treble is mostly clear and sharp particularly in speech and on radio. My son who puts on gigs thinks the treble is a ' little 'scratchy ' with some distortion at higher frequencies and in short repeated cadences in the type of electronic music he plays ( loudly) at gigs but these aren't designed for blasting dance music across a field. Happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LCinimod from Excellent speakers Bought these to replace older, larger floorstanders. Delighted that these have comparable richness and depth in a smaller box. Great clarity - really good at revealing inner parts in classical music, for example - but also with warmth - so Chick Corea running away with himself in high treble piano is crystal clear but not harsh. Also got enough oomph to be used as front speakers for a movie - not lacking in power for the grand soundstage. And they look neat, so the household member for whom such considerations are an incomprensibly high priority is also happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ZM76 from Sound great and look awesome in English Walnut Bought these to replace my gloss black 2010s, what a difference! Still being run in so hoping it will only get better in terms of the sound detail. Took a bit of a gamble going for the English Walnut but they do look amazing so am so glad I did. However its not about the looks but the sound and havent been able to fault them for the room and use as front speakers in combo with the 3090ci centre. The only thing that may be a downer is the size difference between these and the 2010s, the 3020s are quite larger and you may need to accommodate for this. The stand mount hole is in the front and back centre of the speaker base so not all stands will work. Look for the 3000FSi but be aware there is no integral cable management in these. Lastly, the magentic speaker grills are a huge let down, try not to breathe on them or they will fall off! Apart from that, excellent value for money

Rated 5 out of 5 by msc370 from Sony turntable and QAcostics 3020i speakers Sony turntable was easy to setup and does the job, the speakers are excellent, great sound although the wall brackets I bought mean the speakers are closer to the wall than I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CampPMC from Dream Speakers Bought this online during pandemic. Ordered at 5.00pm and arrived next day. Super efficient on the part of Richer Sounds. Bought these as secondary speakers for my study. Partnering a Cyrus One HD. They really exceed all expectations. The detail, depth and dynamics are totally beyond anything you could reasonably expect. Reccomend without reservation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cameron1983 from Matches 3050i floorstanders I bought this recently to match the 3050i floorstanders and they compliment them well. Despite their depth, they're actually not that prominent once wall mounted in the corners of the room. Finish is excellent, as it was with the 3050i and good clear weighty sound to them. Pleased, particulraly as Richer Sounds price matched and beat a competitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Really happy with these great speakers For the price I think these speakers are great. Physically deeper that I expected (pleasingly so) they're solid and look great in my opinion, although maybe check your shelf depth before you order. The magnetic front covers are a nice touch, and the rounded corners make them appear less boxy. They sound really good; I have a couple of sets of studio monitors so I'm used to a flat, un-hyped sound. They remind me of my (expensive) B&O Play headphones in that regard. There's a decent full frequency range there, but if deep bass is your thing you would want a sub in a larger room. I suspect they are going to fill out a bit more with more play, and I haven't spent long on placement either. I like the rubber feet too, another small touch that I wasn't expecting at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by leander5690 from Clear as a bell! I bought these to replace an ageing pair of speakers, and have no regrets. They have pretty good bass output, the treble is very clear, and will cope with just about anything I can throw at them. Excellent speakers.
