Sound fantastic on the end of my naim system. Everybody should hear these speakers once in their lives.
I bought these speakers together, with an nad d 3020 as an amplifier – pretty blindly, just because of the throughout great reviews, for both devices on the internet (here in germany they are pretty much unknown). Till this day i am in love with this sound system and am regularly surprised of the brilliant sound i enjoy. I can only recommend these speakers to anybody, who wants to experience his music with pleasure. I would always choose them again.
I decided to upgrade my mordaunt short avant 902i speakers, which i must say were a brilliant speaker for the price. As it was just too difficult to audition live i decided to read up and buy blind with the intention of selling on ebay if i made the wrong choice. I did consider floor standers but as i am a detail and soundstage freak i decided to look at stand mounted. The q acoustics concept 20 stood out as all the reviews commented on their clarity and detail as well as good bass and fantastic treble. The only negative was they all also said that you would only get the best from these speakers if you placed them on the bespoke stand that is manufactured for them but which retails at around £200 . As i already owned a superb set of atacama stands that was nearly a deal breaker but i decided to go for the combo as the atacamas are a little shorter than the concept 20 stands and may not have been ideal for what is a small box. When i got everything set up and playing my concerns about the cost evaporated. I am not going to say that they blow the avants, sat on the atacamas, out of the water because that would not be strictly true. In fact the avants are , in many areas, not that far behind the qs but the qs are a bit of a step up.
Amazing speakers for the size/price. These speakers really are fantastic for the size and price. They deliver a neutral sound, with punchy, clear bass and great mids and highs. Just after i bought mine, a friend came over to check them out and he was really impressed and he asked me to turn them up to see how they performed at high volume levels and they still sounded just as awesome. The dimensions are 260 x 170 x 280, so they’re quite deep for small bookshelf speakers and in the documentation that comes with them it recommends that you have a gap of 20 cm between the back of the speakers and any walls as they’re rear-ported speakers. I’ve got mine closer to the wall than that and they still sound great. In the box you get the 2 speakers, 2 speaker grilles, 2 bungs you can use to stick in the rear ports should you want to have the speakers up against a wall, 6 rubber feet and the documentation. The speakers can be bi-wired if you wish. If i had to say anything negative, it would be that the glossy finish is an absolute fingerprint magnet and that the rubber feet don’t seem to easily fit into the holes on the bottom of the speakers, but those really are minor complaints. I read a bunch of reviews before i bought these, so i was confident that they would be good and they are.

They sound and look great, come well packaged with clear instructions.
I’m a big fan of live full-on sounds like gary numan, steve hackett and roger waters. These speakers handle it superbly right across the range and at a high volume.
A very articulate and open speaker,clear and refined, amazing for it’s size.
