”The 3050is are full of energy and even better than their predecessors – Q Acoustics has come up with the goods once more.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £649

HPE enhanced for a purer sound

Unique to the 3050i model, HPE (Helmholtz Pressure Equalizer) technology reduces distortion. Larger speaker cabinets tend to build up pressure in specific areas, causing resonance and cabinet distortion. By equalising the pressure around the cabinet the pressure is reduced, giving a less distorted sound.

Improved cabinet bracing
Working alongside HPE is new P2P bracing. P2P (Point-to-Point) bracing is now deployed to enhance rigidity and further 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 cones are light, rigid, and helps give the 3050i’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 3050i’s are amongst the most dynamic sounding speakers in their class.

Twin woofers for a big sound with movies or music
The 3050i is a worthy flagship - with twin woofer units the bass depth and dynamics are effortlessly deep and powerful. Despite the exhilarating sound, they’re far from unrefined. Thanks to high quality components and clever design, they still have the same skill with extracting the finer subtleties of music. The big scale sound created by the 3050i’s also makes them ideal as the front speakers in a home cinema set. For a totally cohesive sound, simply add the matching 3000i-Series centre and satellite speakers.

Four finishes to suit your style
With its distinctively designed, rounded cabinets, the 3050i 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.

Whether it’s thrill-a-minute action or soothing Classical music, the Q Acoustic 3050i speakers will have you gripped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers and look great too! I bought these recently as part of the Cinema pack and have to say they are superb. I have traditionally always been a Mission speaker advocate and have owned many pairs over the years but there are truly exceptional speakers. Ordered them on a Friday and they came on the Saturday morning (I didn't even pay extra for next day/Saturday delivery) so great service from Richer Sounds as always. I wouldn't buy my audio from anywhere else. If you are in the market for some floorstanders and/or the cinema pack then don't hesitate to buy these they are great. Richer also price matched as I managed to find them cheaper online, no quibbles at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Q acoustics q3050i I bought these speakers a week ago, and I must say that I'm very impressed with the sound. Crystal clear, lovely finish to the speakers. listening to alot of genre music, but mostly my husband listens to classical music, where he finds they able to produce a large stereo image which is great for big orchestral pieces, even the more complex competition there is alot of good detail of separation. We listen to music without a subwoofer as we find in our medium to large room the speakers produces amble base. We have the speakers pulled out into our room around 80cm, but when we watch movies we do put on the subwoofer just to help with the extra low detail. But the speakers are more than capable with music and show alot of good bottom end detail in our opinion. The delivery from richer sounds was excellent very fast and reliable and good to talk to on the phone for advice. We had our speakers from our Cardiff branch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic upgrade Purchased these to replace My 3020i's which I have moved to the rear. So far they sound amazing and couldn't be happier. Running them along side 2x rel HT1003 subs and they have matched in well. Collected from from the Maidstone all covid safe. Top notch service as normal. Cinema all done... Onto the hifi setup now :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound with Naim power amp and ChorHugo 2 DAC Ordered these speakers in graphite finish. They are quite large - ie deeper - than you may expect, but when placed away from a wall - due to rear port - they sound fantastic

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Part order so only part review I ordered the 3050i 5.1 with Sony STR-DN1080 AV Receiver on 1st July. Unfortunately the reciever was not in stock but I was told it there was a delivery expected early July, maybe even first week. Alas it was I who had to contact Richer Sounds for a delivery update only to be informed that there are further delays in the delivery. This was both annoying but moreover disappointing that I was not kept up to date. This isn't Richer Sounds usual high standard. I however digress. The reason for my upgrade was primarily to replace my 10 year Sony reciever that has eventually given up on most channels, the only healthy channel is front B. To this end, the only speakers I have been able to test have been the front 3050i's and I must say I am impressed. They is a definite step change compared to my (20 plus year old) Mission speakers, the vocals are richer and the bass is more refined. I also have the sub connected using AV control but there is a hum at volumes higher than 50%. This could be related to my failed reciever so can't really comment until I have my new Sony. My gut feel is these will be five star speakers but I can't stretch to that yet because of the uncertainty of the sub and the inability to test the other speakers in the set. Richer Sounds, please keep your customers up to date, even if the news is bad. That way we don't look at every delivery van in anticipation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Sound, even without the Sub running Decided to upgrade our home cinema system from a pedestrian system to something a bit more capable, and capable this system is. can't recommend it highly enough, and i can't wait until the AV Receiver turns up so we can feed these beautiful speakers with a signal they deserve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from big speakers big sound bought these as a replacement for my b&w dm603 s3 and was worried they would not be as good given they were half the original price of the b&ws , i neednt have worried though , they are as good as medium volume and i would say better at lower volumes , the bass is deep enough to fill a large room easily , awsome clarity across the range , would highly recommend if you have the space

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and advice Bought a hi fi package from the Bristol branch just before lockdown. As a novice I had loads of questions which were dealt with without fuss and without making me feel inferior. My suggestions and choices were considered and great advice given as to alternatives. All in all a very pleasant experience. Delivery was prompt and the set up is amazing and better than I expected. Thanks guys you are great at what you do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds and Looks awesome I bought the Cambridge CX Series at Richer Sounds and when I spoke to the advisor/assistant Nathan he guided me straight to the Q305i floor speakers. He told me that these speakers were the best there was in the price budget I was looking at - and he is not wrong. Assembly is straight forward and easy and once connected to the system the sound was unbelievable, it was awesome. I chose the Graphite finish to fit in with the hifi system and the house decor and they blend is so easily irrespective of their size. A very worthwhile purchase which produces an awesome sound. Recommend these bad boys any time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers You won’t get better quality for this price. They have an impressive performance, and the way it merges the sound is remarkable. I compared with even more expensive speakers and they don’t compete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking speakers and great sound Had these for just over a week now. Bought to replace a pair of Rogers ls2 speakers that I got c. 30 years ago and am very impressed with the sound using both a turntable and a streamer as source. Bass is strong, but not overpowering, treble is fine and voices have great presence. Spent more time than I should have since getting them listening to my collection and enjoying every minute. Highly recommended demoing these if you are looking for new, affordable floorstanders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing These speakers sound amazing when paired with a decent amplifier and some good quality OFC cabling. They give a nice warm bass and a crisp treble without any calibration, though using Audyssey MultEQ on my AV Receiver does bring out even more richness. If pairing with a sub-woofer for movies, make sure it can hit those low notes as these speakers can produce audible sound down as low as around 37Hz by my measurements. The Q Acoustics 3060S works well with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent speakers Bought 2 weeks ago to compliment my Denon receiver. Absolutely blown away by the sound quality and ease of setup. The graphite grey colour gives them that modern look which will last long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant, crystal clear clarity! I bought my pair of Q Acoustic 3050i speakers to replace my old B&W 602.5 floorstanders and to say I was a bit apprehensive about letting my ‘old faithfuls’ go, is an understatement. However, I knew I was looking for something ‘extra’ in my listening experience, more depth of sound, more clarity and more range, from top to bottom. The Q Acoustics have exceeded my expectations 100-fold! These stylish and exceptionally sophisticated speakers are first class and I look forward to many hours of highly enjoyable listening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Q Acoustics 3050i Speakers - First Impressions Yesterday I purchased these newly released Q Acoustics 3050i Floorstanding Speakers to replace my smaller 3020 Q Acoustics Speakers on Q Acoustic stands. Early days obviously....but they really improve the bass and middle range frequencies over the 3020's . I highly recommend using the foam inserts supplied to fill the open ports at the back of the speakers. The reason for this is that if you place the speakers too close to the wall at the back, without doing this, the bass is too open and spoils the overall tightness of the bass and middle range sound stage. I feel this is very important as I have tried auditioning them with and without and for me with the foam inserted they sound much better! If you have the space I highly recommended these 3050i Floorstanding Speakers at £650.00 which I think is very good value for mid range Audiophile speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasing on the ears I was persuaded to buy these after returning a pair of Dali speakers. I am so pleased. Seem to perform well with a wide range of music and really bring the best out of well produced albums. Am using with a Yamaha AS-501 amp and appears to be a good match (no problems with bass as has been suggested in some reviews of the amp). Unless you want to spend megabucks then these are an option worth considering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i for incredible I got these from Hanley store, as usual the guys were awesome and helpful. I'd been wanting some floorstanders for sometime, upgrading from stand mounted. I knew that there'd be a difference in sound, but wow, what a difference these have made. The bass on the 3050i generate has made my sub redundant. But they're also very musical too. I'm hearing new things on familiar music and when used as part of my home cinema setup, these speakers are simply jaw dropping. They're quite big, but my other half likes them so that's good. They look far better than the previous model and the improvements made to the cabinets and drivers have created another stunner. **The 3050i are not bi-wireable as stated on the specs on RS web.
