”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 Fabulous quality speaker with fantastic sound. After some in-depth research with hours of internet searches and also the reading numerous reviews these speakers showed up as the best within my price bracket. The choice was absolutely spot on as these speakers are far better than I could ever imagine, need I say more. Also to add that it a correct choice to purchase them from Richer sounds, the service and speed of delivery was second to non. Further purchases will definitely be on the cards and very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took me by surprise! I’ve had these speakers a matter of weeks and they are fantastic! I’ve come from kef Q550, and let me tell you they are no match for the Q acoustics 3050i. I have been so impressed by them. 100% recommended from me with no hesitation. This is a lot of speaker for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astonishing,crystal clear, complex sounds revealed I am genuinely blown away by these beautiful looking and stunning sounding monoliths. A brief bit of context: I have gradually been converting my music files to high res (16 bit-24 bit and 44kHz) and also streaming in Lossless format. When my old Cambridge audio amp blew, I replaced it with the superior 6000A. The sound quality was leagues ahead, but I felt that my now ancient TDL Saturn 10 speakers were exhibiting distortion and were not maximising on the quality of sound I had anticipated. I did a fair bit of research to find the best speaker for me, that would pair well with my new 6000A. The Q Acoustics stood out as a fantastic budget range (though as others have mentioned, I consider them more mid-budget range), all rounder, as evidenced on various audiophile blog sites and a glowing review in WhatHiFi. And I am happy to say that these reviews are totally accurate. I first tested Mark Pritchard's 'Glass pops', initially on my old TDLs, followed by the Q Acoustics. The quality of sound was phenomenal and vastly improved. The clarity and nuances of the sound structures and complex levels was astonishing. Literally (and you hear this a lot), I was hearing elements and intricacies I had never heard, in my 5 years of frequent play of the track. Seriously stunning! I was transfixed and mesmerised. I have listened to a variety of genres since and I am constantly being amazed by the glorious richness and clarity these speakers bring. For an electronic music lover, this set up is perfect. But they deliver just a wonderfully with Classical, Folk, pop and rock. It's no exaggeration for me to say that these speakers have revealed to me a whole new experience of and love for music. Frankly, I wouldn't hesitate and I'm gobsmacked I have allowed myself to enjoy quality of sound like this for so long. Furthermore, I ordered these on line on a Friday afternoon, and they were delivered to me by Richer sounds, the following afternoon. Amazing product. Amazing service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another good deal Excellent speakers and really fast delivery at a very competitive price. At least Richer Sounds use a good Courier, have had some forgettable experiences shopping elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent bass response, quality sound overall I bought these speakers to replace my vintage Mission 753s. I must say that they certainly delivered on what the Missions lacked, which was a decent bass response. I can’t say that I find the speakers better than the Missions in other respects though. If I could have had just a little more bass out of my Missions, I would say that I prefer them. But these are fine speakers, and they do deliver clear sounds across the whole range of frequencies.
