”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 Sound and look amazing I purchased these from the Weybridge store, the speakers are fantastic and the service from amit was first class. Speakers in the walnut finish look the part and the balance on films, music and gaming is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, just excellent! I’ve only had these a week, so they are barely run in, but I’m discovering hitherto undiscovered detail in long-owned records. I’m playing Hendrix -Axis bold as love right now, and it’s like hearing it for the first time. They’ve replaced a pair of vintage Ruarks, good in their day, but these Q acoustics 3050is are the business!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking speakers. Certainly a talking point. I bought these a week ago and still breaking them in with my Rega io amplifier and Rega Planar two turntable along with a iFi Bluetooth DAC. Incredible bass on tracks where it should be but not overpowering. Gentle on the ear during Chopin’s nocturnes. During Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue” I noticed cymbal work that I’d not before. Great performance across all genres.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference I had thought I was going deaf until I replaced my 40 year old floor standing speakers. What a difference. Don't like a sharp sound, it gives me listening fatigue, but these are wonderful. They may be half the height of me, but worth it. They were reviewed in an audio mag, got good reviews and purchased without listening, because of Covid19 regs. The shop said if I did not like them it would be sorted out, so good service. They made me smile the first time I heard them. So perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance Only a couple of days in but I’m very impressed with the fullness of the sound, stepping up from wharfedale diamonds I’m instantly blown away with the separation these speakers provide. Looking forward to working through my catalogue to find out how they perform in different genres. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Fantastic Bought these as a Christmas present for myself and I am absolutely delighted with them. They look fantastic and sound even better (and getting better the more they run in). The guy I spoke to in telesales was really helpful and knowledgeable and to top it off, they are at the best price on the Internet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Speakers from 5 Star Richer Sounds I bought the Q Acoustic 3050i speakers to accompany my new Cambridge Audio CX series 2 system. They are attached to the CXA81 integrated amplifier using unterminated Chord Company Clearway X speaker cable. It was a choice between these and the Dali Oberon 5 which pipped these to the award this year. Probably due to this the 3050is have come down in price by £100. This and the fact that they are much bigger and far better looking in my opinion is why they are now in my lounge. Wow these are good! I'm listening to CDs, via Cambridge Audios CXC transport, and the matching CXN Network Steamer. Sound is equally good for both sources. Build quality is first rate. They are quite heavy so two people will make unpacking much easier. I mainly listen to Jazz, Blues, and Soul music. Vocals are extremely clear and focused in the sound stage. I sometimes regress to my youth and Pig Bag, The Art of Noise, and New Order’s Blue Monday come on and the volume goes up! The 3050is seems more than able to cope with it all. Initially I noticed some bass boom, I have the speakers the recommended minimum of 200mm from the rear wall but I do not have much space to the side of the left hand speaker (see picture). It was the left speaker that seemed to be booming the most and it is very close the the sideboard, so I think these definitely need breathing space to the sides, 500mm is recommended. I followed the manual in this scenario and inserted the supplied foam bung into the bass port on the back of each speaker. Wow the difference this made was incredible. Absolutely no boom at all and a very tight and punchy bass. I have these stood on a solid wood parquet floor which is over concrete (converted farm building) so there is no vibration at all but you can certainly still feel the bass. I might add the Q B12 subwoofer next year for more grunt, but it's not really necessary for a lot on the music I listen to. I just want to mention that I originally ordered these from Sevenoaks Sound and Vision because they were out of stock at Richer Sounds. I wish I had just phoned Richer Sounds because despite saying they would be delivered free in 3 to 5 days Sevenoakes did not actually have any stock. After finding that they were back in stock at Richer Sounds I placed an order at 3:40 pm, paid for next day delivery, and they arrived the next morning. I'm really glad I bought these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounding soeakers I spent 2 hours in Richer Sounds listening to floor standing speakers and these came out top. The bass is tight and not at all boomy and the mid range is detailed and precise. The upper range is smooth with no harshness and the soundstage is open and huge. They are excellent and good looking floorstanders and unbeatable value for the money. Really very pleased with them!
