"Powerful and assertive, the 3050s deliver a huge sense of scale and are capable of enveloping our largest test room." What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017

Award-winning predecessors

The Q Acoustics 2000-Series was one of the most widely praised speaker ranges, having picked 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 3050 are brand new speaker units for an even more impressive sound quality. Starting at the top, the new Ring Dome tweeter provides precise reproduction of even the most subtle aspects of music. It's also decoupled from the rest of the cabinet, it isn't affected by vibration from the bass units. The new Aramid Fibre/Paper woofer cones are light and rigid, and help give the 3050s their punchy, agile sound quality.

Twin woofers
The 3050 is a worthy flagship - with twin woofer units the bass depth and dynamics are effortlessly deep and powerful. Yet, despite its exhilarating sound, it's far from uncouth. Thanks to high quality components and design, it still has the same subtle skill with extracting the finer subtleties of music. A new design of plinth not only looks good, but keeps the 3050 firmly planted, helping to promote a cleaner, tighter sound.

Class-leading cross-over
With revised cabinet bracing, the distinctive Q Acoustics cabinets have been made even better. With reduced cabinet resonance, the sound becomes less coloured and closer its studio/concert venue sound. Up-rated audiophile grade crossover components improve the transparency of sound still further.

New range of finishes
Still distinctively designed with signature rounded cabinets, the new 3000-Series is available in a broad range of finishes. Choose between Matt Graphite, Black Leather Effect or Black Lacquer for a technical look. Alternatively, White Lacquer looks great in modern interiors. Finally, the American Walnut vinyl finish is the ideal complement for both antique and traditional furniture.

Robust yet refined and offering an expansive sound quality, the Q Acoustics 3050 speakers will have you glued to your seat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound with any setup! I was a bit hesitant to get these when I read they had been replaced by the 3050i, however, they are still a great buy! I'm currently saving for a decent amp and using them with a cheap old marantz amp and they sound fantastic! I tried them with my friends onkyo and they are really receptive. Importantly they sound great at any volume so not an issue in a smaller room. Bass is solid for this price and you won't be disappointed by it. It has a well balanced sub range which will most likely be enough for most tastes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown away I treated myself to an early Christmas present, the Q Acoustics 3050's are a super cool design and the sound that comes from them blew me away, tight DEEP bass and crystal clear clarity of each instrument and voices have made me a lifelong fan of the make Also the price they were on sale at was another winner, thank you Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audiophile enjoyment for the masses I bought these from Richer Sounds via Amazon. Very quick dispatch, ordered on Monday and they were delivered on Wednesday, thumbs up for you guys! The first time I layed eyes on Q Acoustics speakers was on 3020 bookshelf models a few years ago and I was immediately captivated by their looks. I knew I had to get some at some point in time. I love floorstanders so it was the 3050 all the way for me. This Summer they were on sale in white for £299 and at that point in time I didn't have the funds and I am still gutted about that but heyho, last week I finally had a bit more leeway and with them being in ever shorter supply due to them having been discontinued and superseded by the 3050i I knew it was now or never. I had Wharfedale Pacific EVO 30's which are sweet sounding, beautiful looking and quite big floorstanders but these are dwarfed by the 3050's who stand a little more than a meter tall. The 3050's are beautiful sound monoliths with their rounded edges, they have a commanding presence, they look SO good, I am absolutely smitten by them. Enough about the looks, how's the sound? In one word: sweet! I have a little more than 40 hours break-in time on them at the moment and they sound excellent. I am driving them from a Marantz NR1200 with Amazon Music HD as high res source with QED XT-25 cables, nothing fancy but certainly up to the task. I thought they already sounded mint right out of the box, maybe a little harsh in the highs and unfocused in the lows but that VERY soon changed into a smooth sounding combo. I have seen reviews lamenting the lack of bass. Put James Blake's 'Limit to your Love' on and the bass just pins you back in your seat and at moderate volume. Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü's 'Mind (feat. Kai) [Ekali & Gravez Remix]' has beautiful big bass and Sevdaliza's album 'Ison' is beautifully produced with rich lows as is FKA Twig's 'LP1' and Underworld's 'Dubnobasswithmyheadman'. If you can't hear the bass in those albums on these speakers there is something wrong in your audio chain and it's not these speakers believe me! I don't use the foam bungs as they inhibit and choke the sound at least in my room, they may have their uses for others but they stay in their little plastic bags in my house. Miles Davis's 'Kind of Blue' and 'Sketches of Spain' in 24-bit/96 kHz is a real treat. 'Leaving meaning' from Swans is huge, wide, epic. David Sylvian's 'Secrets of the Beehive', an album that has been with me for decades now has revealed new layers to me. I can go on and on about the new revelations I hear in albums that I have known for a long time but I am already longwinded as it is. Sound is wide, roomfilling, precise, everything is balanced, the mids are well defined, the feeling of space is so clear and you know where everyone is in that space. Vocals are clear and centered. I once had a high end setup for a year that my audiophile brother had loaned me with a worth of 15.000 euros. I can't remember the brand, they were huge mono blocks with pre-amp and my speakers at the time were Dutch made Aura Pied Pipers. After a year I could purchase the set for 1.500 euros, a fraction of the worth but I just didn't have the money so I had to let them go. After that everything sounded mediocre and I never bothered anymore and was content with mp3's played through my computer on mediocre 5.1 and 7.1 AV Receivers. Until now. The Marantz/Q Acoustics setup I have now coupled with Amazon Music HD have given me the real pleasure of listening to music back, however budget it all may be. Don't get me wrong, I have never stopped listening to music and enjoying it but this set, now beautifully rounded out by the 3050's puts a smile on my face everyday. It is remarkable what QA has done within this price bracket with the 3050. I am truly, truly impressed with the sheer quality of the sound produced by them. It is truly audiophile for the masses and a huge thank you to Q Acoustics to bring quality like that at a price that the common man can afford. If you can get hold of these for a nice price, do it, you will not regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing As of December 20 these are on sale at £329 (about £300 cheaper than the 3050i upgrade) and are incredible. I read the review by the musician below which confirmed my decision. They take up a bit of space but if you like your music worth it. Passed the Kraftwerk test with flying colours. Absolute bargain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful sound I bought these to replace a 25 year old pair of Mission 780se on heavy, rather ugly stands. I went for the 3050 rather than the 3050i simply because the 3050 can be bi-amped as I've always preferred with my Missions; plus they were £250 cheaper! At first I thought I'd made a big mistake; the Missions have always provided excellent control and fidelity but lacked a bass "punch". The 3050s seemed to have too much uncontrolled bass and a rather fuzzy top end but positioning is critical. My speakers have to be fairly close to a rear wall (who can put speakers in the middle of a room!?) and the supplied rear port muffler made all the difference, taking the boom out of the bass. Then I started a simple running in process by playing the radio through them for about 20 - 30 hours over three days and what a difference! The high registers are much clearer and the lower registers much more controlled. They are still improving after another 20 or so hours of mixed listening. At £350 a pair from Richers they were £200 less than the Q Acoustics RRP and an absolute bargain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity, depth and imaging I have had these 3050 for a week now and they are fantastic. The TV has been off for a week and I’ve rekindled my love of music. Clarity across the frequencies is great and the stereo imaging is fantastic. I’ve played all sorts of genres and it handles them all with no issues. The bass is nice and tight and plays low enough to feel it. For the money you can’t go wrong. I wanted to listen to them but lockdown didn’t allow this. Took a pint based on reviews and they weren’t wrong. Couldn’t justify the extra £270 for the 3050i which a few reviews agreed with. Playing through a Denon DRA-800H network player, DAB and turntable. All sounds good as does Hi Res music from USB Ordered on Saturday and delivered on Monday. Fantastic service during lockdown too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built great sounding speakers Ordered them at 3pm on Sunday and they arrived by lunchtime on Monday using the standard delivery option! They are very heavy and appear to be well put together. They sound great straight away and get even better over time. Got to be the bargain of the year at their current price. Great service from Richer Sounds. Very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All round great sound Bought these from the guys at Richer Sounds and they could not have been more helpful. Very polite staff and a real pleasure to deal with. Will definitely be using these guys next time I make a purchase. You should be very proud guys. 10/10
