Q ACOUSTICS Q Acoustics 3010 Compact Bookshelf Speakers – Jolly useful for convenient, serious, wrapping jobs.

Happy with it thanks 👍🏻.

I was looking to upgrade my hi fi speakers and decided to buy these, it’s now like i’ve got a complete new system. These speakers are absolutely brilliant and well worth the money, highly recommended.

Insanely cheap for it’s premium build quality & sounding. A perfect choice for small spaces. An ideal pick for those who into jazz or electronica. Still gives a great punch for rock or metal genre. Best describes as a compact speakers that’s doesn’t screams but crisps.

Well detailed sound but needs a subwoofer in my opinion.

Excellent response good bass and treble. Matched with mission rears and centre and all go together to create a good ambience in my particular living room. Very well suited to my sony amp. If you are looking for a nice set of fairly small bookshelf speakers or even (as is my case) front speakers for a 5. 1 set up and you don’t have unlimited funds, these are well worth considering.

Jolly useful for convenient, serious, wrapping jobs.

  • Great sounding & looking speakers.
  • Unreal sound quality, for the money.
  • Five stars are not enough for these little speakers – Absolutely superb and worth the money

Bought the q acoustics 3010’s to upgrade my sony cd/dab music centre. The speakers are absolutely fantastic improved the sound 100%. Would recommend for sound, build and quality.

Very nice design and finish. The packing is very nice also. Sound wise very happy with this. Magnetic cloth screen makes it easy to remove.

I have just replaced my pair of jbl control 1’s with these speakers and what a difference is all i can say. They definitely bring out a new dimension to my old and trusted pioneer amplifier which i’ve owned for 24 years now. I also recommend the q acoustic shelves for the 3010’s too. Worth every penny if you want to bring your amplifier to life with small, punchy bookshelf speakers that really do sound great.

1 surround system and for music in stereo mode. Paired with a pioneer 100w amp. Very good, i used to work in a hi fi store for five years so got to hear lots of speakers. These stack up well, you then take in to account the price and they are an absolute gem.

These speakers are exceptional value for money, i have been using a friends pair of very expensive floor standing speakers for the last few years but buying my own setup for the first time he suggested these as a starting point. For the admittedly smallish room that they are in the sound is incredibly good. As the smallest bookshelf speakers in the range they are incredibly powerful, i am powering them through a sony sdr-dn1050 for music and home theatre, for several months i was using only two speakers as they were so impressive without any centre speakers or rears at all. Eventually i couldn’t resist buying a second pair to make a surround sound setup, a centre too, but there is no need for a sub the bass from these really small speakers is already plenty for me. They benefit a lot from being mounted properly on good stands or wall mounts, other things to mention are the nice minimalist design, good quality case, it’s walnut veneer of course but it looks good. Connectors are on the back which is better than the 2010s underside and the grills are held on nicely with magnets.

Great build quality fantastic sound delivered in 2 days even when we had snow .

The balance between high,middle & bass is spot on. They are well made & finished to a high standard. I use mine connected to a brennan b2 & are ideal for it. They are larger than i expected. If these are classed as compact & i would like to see what they would call large. I can highly reccomend them. You well not get a better set of speakers unless you pay much more. The sizes very from web site to web site, so the actual size is 150mm wide, 235mm high & 200mm deep.

I love my music, but i’m no tedious audiophile. I bought these to replace some original speakers from a 20 year old mini system. Whilst there was nothing wrong with the old ones, where i had them they were too bulky and i wanted something to fit the decor better. These speakers are nicely compact, but noticeably more competent than the ones they replaced. I’m hearing new subtleties and nuances in music i’ve known for years. For the size and price i really don’t think you can do much better.

Bought to replace my q acoustics 2020i, which were wonderful, but too heavy for my cantilevered bookshelves, which were starting to sag. These sound every bit as good, if not better, and are significantly smaller, so i’m well pleasedhighly recommended.

Lovely small compact size speakers, i chose the graphite colour qa3010 (but other finishes i”m sure would look nice too). Great sound on my vintage technics hi-fi.

Great speakers that give much more expensive ones a run for the money. Small compact size but a sound that simply shouldn’t come from speakers that cost less than £100. Just buy them, use as main stereo speakers or as surrounds in a multi channel set up.

Ultra compact, audiophile-filtering; 100mm subwoofer.

Made my souround sound so much better.

Fantastic sound, great build quality for the money toodelighted with this purchase to replace my old hifi speakers.

. So much so that i’m hearing musical nuances for the first time. The only downside is what i would describe as a boxy or hollow midrange. I’m hopeful some messing with the amp settings will sort this. Very happy with build quality.

A lot of base despite their size. Look stylish and feature a magnetic front cover.

Excellent speakers with solid base and wide range but with a size that doesn’t impose on even a small room.

Great value, fairly compact bookshelf type speaker with excellent sound clarity. If this is what you’re looking for, then i would say look no further than the q acoustics 3010 (or 3020 which is a bit bigger). The speakers are well built and deliver a nicely balanced and detailed sound, with plenty of bass for a small/medium sized room. Importantly for me, they also sound great at fairly low levels for everyday listening, but turn them up for your favourite tracks and you’ll be amazed at the brilliant sound quality relative to their compact size and price. I went for the matte finish as we didn’t want to see finger prints etc. I cannot recommend these speakers enough, delighted with purchase. Ps re other comments on fitting the rubber feet, they are slightly fiddly, but just need to be screwed in as per the instructions, mine went in without any problems once i got them started.

Small size.

Unreal sound out of these, i purchased the lepy 2024a+ amp to go with these and it’s a perfect setup. Magnetic speaker grills are a nice touch making it easy to remove when needed. They’re a nice size for a medium to large desktop. Would recommend to anyone looking for amazing sound quality for the price.

Superb sound, nice compact design.

What a great pair of quality speakers. I used to have a pair of tannoy floor standing speakers and a pair of missions that were a similar size to these and the difference is astounding. These q acoustics really open up the sounds with amazing clarity compared to the other two, almost as if you’ve taken your balaclava off. For the size, even the bass is impressive, very tight, but with a wee bit of oomph. It’s the top end and the mid range that is a real revelation. I have them on a shelves at the moment, but have invested in a good pair of 60cm high stands that will bring the tweeters up to ear height, whilst i am sat down, so the sound should be even better. For the money, i can’t rate them highly enough. They remind me when i got my first set of good hifi speakers, tannoy 605s, in the early 90s, which improved my then cd and record collections to new heights. I had a kenwood 3020i amp then, which i wish i had never sold. I’ll be looking to get a new amp soon, to replace my yamaha receiver.

Having been used to much larger and more expensive speakers, these are a disappointment: they just don’t have the concert-hall weight, space, depth, or transparency i was looking for, though they are adequate on less demanding material (i. I have played rock, jazz, easy listening, and various genres of classical through them, and that is my honest conclusion. Good clarity, and may suit a small room better; mine is 75m³.

Wow replaced my old teac speakers which i thought were good but my partner did not like the size. These small speakers are amazing pick up all the different instruments from the music. Now connected them to my tv great for movies.

. Vvery good sound, clear and with immersive bass. Great sound for both music and movies. Aesthetically they are stylish and do not look bad in a living room.

The new 3010 is suitable for both Hifi and home cinema.

I have ever come across, they are in a class of their own. I have several of the range and all absolutely amaze in their performance.

Excellent small speakers with superb clarity, openness, detail and rhythm. As these speakers are only just launched and no professional reviews available, i took somewhat of a gamble and i am so pleased i did. This was based on q acoustics were saying they were better sounding than the very highly acclaimed award winning 2010 model. Beautifully finished and a great speaker at the price.

Good value and were a superior upgrade to my rear surround speakers, sound very very good, mix well with mission speakers on a 7. We’re small enough to replace bookshelf speakers.

I bought these as a short term fix as i have no space for my tannoy dc’s. Paired with audiolab q dac and m-pwr these positively shine. Fantastic detail and strong clear bass. May we leave the tannoy’s boxed up.

Excellent speakers at an affordable price.

Awesome, loud and crispy clear. The amp will reveal loud and clear bass hidden behind crystal clear medium and ever so slightly slightly too high highs.

Works perfectly with the 3090C central port.

These q acoustics 3010 really are the business. Paired with my yamaha mini hi fi the sound is loud and clear.

As good a sound quality as can be had by speakers of this genre.

I was actually advised to avoid these speakers from richer sounds in cheltenham but i’m so glad i bought them. Paired with my denon rcd-m38, they sound awesome producing a clear, crisp and balanced tone. I’m truly blown away with the bass from these small ‘bookshelf’ speakers.

Superb sound and build quality.

Great sound in a small package.

I coupled these 2 speakers with the q acoustics centre speaker q3090c and a good subwoofer. It totally changed the way i listen to music and watch movies.

Absolutely brilliant – the sound is perfect for the space in the study and i suspect they could fill a much larger room.

Q ACOUSTICS Q Acoustics M3 Soundbar – Outstanding sound from the top rated manufacturer of Hifi speakers.

Supposedly the q acoustics m4 has won all the awards and this speaker has not. I have tried the m4 out and i was not as impressed as i was with this m3. I was in a really busy and noisy john lewis though so not the best place to test out speakers. Definitely is uglier than the m3.And you can’t use hdmi with the m4. However, i have been able to test out thoroughly at home the m3 against the samsung hw-ms650, the latter having won a bunch of awards. It has more base, even with samsung’s option to raise the base more manually, which didn’t seem to do much, and the sound has just more depth and clarity. The m3 also gets louder when playing tv and films. The samsung is more high-tech though, with many different settings, that don’t do much, except the smart mode, and has wifi connection and its own app so you can connect up to spotify without bluetooth and thus not have to worry about range.

I have tried the following 3 soundbars before settling with the q3. Samsung jwalthough bose did a perfect job in delivering crystal clear sound, it did lack a bit of bass. The azatom had solid bass but the sound quality wasn’t appealing. But wow, q3 has proved itself to be the top of class. I have had it for about 6 months and i can say that this soundbar excels in delivering powerful music or cinematic experience. Dont expect it to shake your walls.

Enormous sound bar, ordered in error as i’m still an inches and feet person. Decided to move it to a larger room to await a new tv cabinet that would accept the large size sound bar.

A real improvement to tv sound quality. I suffer from tinnitus and this soundbar makes listening to tv much better than the tinny tv speakers.

Nice sound bar and simple to use. Adds a deaper and richer sound quality to the tv which the built in speakers would not be able to achieve. Would recommend arc so it can all be controlled via tv switching on/off and sound channelled from various ext devices.

Researched into so many different sound bars and decided with this one. No regrets as it’s absoutely amazing. We’ve now purchased another one for the living room. Great sound, nice bass and such a huge sound improvement. Cons: only issues are the remote is pretty naff, but it’s really not needed and is just collected dust here. Also the sound bar is actually quite high so in the bedroom does cut off a bit of the screen.

  • Amazing Sound!
  • Fabulous soundbar
  • Good Sound Bar

I recently installed one of these to my tv. The connection options means it can be attached to anything i can think of. The sound quality is spectacular. I have heard the m4 and the 7000 series before and was impressed with those, i like the look of the m3 so chose that over the m4 but there is not much to chose between them sound wise, the m4 may be slightly louder if your ears can stand it.I read a review on a well known hifi mag that complained about the high level of bass, whoever wrote that obviously didn’t figure out that every aspect of the sound output can be controlled from the tv settings, if you don’t like bass just turn it down. Every tv these days comes with a decent sound card, mine is a philips but i’d like to try it on a sony tv which have the best sound cards fitted. It also sounds fantastic from a bluetooth connection and the range is excellent. Very very impressed with this kit.

Easy to set up, tv finally sounds clear. Linked to alexa easily enough.

I have q speakers so i was not surprised by the sound from the sound bar.

Perfect solution for a wall hung tv- sounds great and looks just as good.

Just wanted to touch on a review above talking about bluetooth taking priority over tv. The order is hdmi arc, optical, bluetooth, then the analogue inputs including 3. If you are connecting via hdmi which is preferred method you will not have the issues of the above 1 star reviewerm also hdmi arc means unit will turn on when you turn tv on and volume will be controlled by tv remote.

Excellent value for money, pairs well with samsung tv.

Value for money, quality product and nicely packaged. Enhanced our joy of watching netflix and other films on freeview as against the poor quality speakers from our sony tv. Should have made the purchase sooner. Dont expect the sound bar to perform as the quick start instructions suggest – it would not provide any sound when the tv was switched to hd or netflix. Spent a lot of time checking and reading the set up process but had to go online to down load the full manual. Eventually i identified that the sony tv sound had to be switched to pcm mode. Ok where to find the pcm mode was the next question ?. Spent further time reading the tv manual and then locating pcm on the tv. If you haven’t got the patience to do all this then find someone who has. The above comment should not deflect you from buying the product as when set up it is absolutely great.

Works fine so far,sound can be controlled by both my sky and tv remotes. Have only connected to the tv by hdmi so cannot adviscontacted the loe on optical but will buy a lead and try later. Also had a small problem (could not find the soundbar remote, it was under the packing). Contacted the firm by email and they were most helpful.

Good bass, without being overpowering. Works well with films, and tv shows. Able to hear the voices well, which has been a problem with some previous sound bars (roth) and the tv speakers.

What a difference to watching/listening to tv.

Its set-up and integration with our present equipment happened with little help needed from me. Its range of connectivity choices makes it nicely versatile, and the resulting audio output is clean but punchy, whether standard or ‘cinema’ mode.

The M3 is simplicity redefined where beautifully engineered sound meets beautiful design.

I researched eoundbars i this price range extensively and sel fred the m3 for its stylish appearance and recommend d sound quality. The m3 is so easy to install, really and truly plug and play. Great clarity of sound fromtv and bluetooth connection nnection with my iphone 7s. If you’re und cider between m3 and m4 think no further and go for this stylish model and get great sound.

Excellent quality at a great price. You think you are at the movies using it.

Just bought a new tv and decided to go the whole hog and get a sound bar, brings programmes to life, didn’t think it would be so different from the sound just coming from the tv.

Sounds brilliant, makes films come to life, i can finally hear everything on the tv, not just bits. Simple to set up, hdmi, then power and off you go. No problems putting on wall either. I’d heard the q4 before but i think this matches it. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a really top quality soundbar.

I was looking for a sound bar to improve general tv viewing & the occasional movie. I’ve always had bose speakers & for a long time had my eye on one of their offerings. Consumer reviews always rave about the bose sound bars whereas the expert reviews are generally underwhelming, stating cost as a negative. On his basis i decided to give the m3 a try. Not many consumer reviews about there but the experts regard it and the brand highly. I connected it up in minutes via the arc hdmi and it was working straight away. It has massively enhanced my viewing experience. I am not an expert, simply a consumer that was fed up with having to pump the volume up to almost max just to hear speech. I would describe the sound as deep and immersive with a good level of bass for the action movies.

The M3 is a true plug and play soundbar.

Wide dispersion BMR drivers provide room-filling sound and clarity, whilst the inbuilt subwoofer gives a depth of soundscape that will transform your TV sound.

Q ACOUSTICS Q Acoustics 3090c Centre Speaker : amazing centre for the money, and fits perfectly in my tv cabinet

Bought to replace a faulty kef 2005 (also bought 3020’s at same time). Sound is clearer and deeper than kef’s.

Great centre speaker for the rest of the 3000 range.

Well built stylish speaker at a good price.

This central speaker as sharp, clear sound making the dialogues more audible. I’m using it together with the denon avr-x1300w and q acoustics 3010 bookshelf front speakers.

  • Fantastic sound quality
  • Excellent – thoroughly recommended!
  • The sound of music

The speaker was in place in no time and the sound is superb.

Bought this with gift vouchers received at christmas. Lovely sound, used mainly for tv and speech radio with sound pushed through tuner/amp. Some current tv dramas seem to have very muffled sound but this gives clarity and a crisp edge to speech. Size is a lot deeper and taller than a sound bar so you’ll have to bear that in mind when thinking about placement – it’s not unobtrusive and is surprisingly heavy. It looks and sounds like a much more expensive speaker, excellent value. Overall, extremely pleased and will look at adding some more of their speakers later.

I bought this to accompany a set of 4 q acoustics 3020s, to have a matching set as part of a 5. Having used these speakers for a couple of months now, i can’t recommend them enough. I am no audiophile but the set sound excellent and they’re a treat to use. To anyone looking at a set to buy – consider this range, you won’t be disappointed.

I bought this as i have the 3020’s as part of my surround set up. I thought the tannoy had a nice sound, but the q acoustics sounds like i’ve taken some socks out of the speaker. The clarity is amazing for the price.

Absolutely brilliant centre speaker for my 5. It compliments my left and right q acoustics 3020 bookshelf speakers perfectly. Great sound for films and music, and they look very smart too.

Amazing centre for the money, and fits perfectly in my tv cabinet.

Really nice sound couldn’t be happier with it, and at a very good price.

Bought to replace monitor audio radius 180.

Q ACOUSTICS Q Acoustics 3000ST Speaker Stands – Good stands

Fantastic stands well made,arrived on time well packed,very easy to assemble i highly recommended these.

Bought a couple of packs of these to go with my 5. 1 q acoustics speakers (reviewed separately – very good) as i wanted speakers in each corner of the room. The base screws into the stand, the speaker place screws to the other end. It’s all very simple, with two sizes of speaker plate included depending on whether you are using these with the 3010i speakers or 3020i speakers. Carpet grip feet are included to screw into the base, with rubber caps that you can put over the end for wooden floors. The stands are hefty – made of metal and solid quality. The speaker plates are indented to match the rubber feet on the speakers so they sit nice and snug. In terms of cable management, the speaker cable runs up the inside of the tall part from underneath the base.

Here are the specifications for the Q ACOUSTICS Q Acoustics 3000ST Speaker Stands:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Laser cut steel
  • Top plates for the 3010 and 3020 loudspeakers included
  • Cable managment
  • Acoustic wadding inserts within columns
  • Textured satin finish

Nice product and well-balanced when the speakers are in place, but the one stand was extremely difficult to put together because the bolts and holes didn’t quite align; it was ok after a bit of work to rectify the problem, but that really shouldn’t be necessary with an item actually designed to fit the speakers and sold by the speaker manufacturer.

Every thing about these speaker stands was great good paint finish and they support the speakers perfectly.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great stands for Q Acoustic Speakers.
  • Good, but not for children
  • Excellent stands

Would recommend these stands to anyone that buys the q acoustic speakers.

Good quality, nice and sturdy.

Used with q acoustics 3020 speakers. Tubes have acoustic wadding inside. Look nice as tubes are not too thick.

These are excellent stands, made exactly for these brilliant speakers. Fit together easily in a few minutes and look good. Ensure you look carefully in the speaker box. The excellent secure fitting is dependant on ensuring the speakers have the rubber feet, they don’t bolt on. I initially didn’t fit mine until i bought the stands a few weeks later.

Specifically made for the 3010 and 3020 speakers, these stands are the correct height for your speakers to be at ear level for perfect listening. The bases are weighted to reduce the chances of toppling over should they be knocked. They are the perfect to accompany the 3020 speakers that i have on my system.

Brilliant, easy to put together and fit the speakers perfectly.

Perfect for q acoustics 3020 speakers.

Made a huge difference to my q3020 speakers. Bass more solid and defined and a more integrated and refined top end.

They really compliment the speakers and have made a big improvement to the bass. A couple of things that aren’t listed in the description:• they come with rubber domes that cover the spikes, perfect for use on wooden floor. • top plates have an indent where rubber feet on speakers sit. Very secure, no need for bolts or blu tac.

Q acoustic speakers are fitted with threaded sockets and i dont understand why the fixing plate supplied was not pre drilled and suitable bolts provided for secure fixing. It appears that the manufacturers expect the speakers just to be balanced on top of the plate?these speakers are heavy, and i think for £99,a fixing kit should be supplied – i had to drill out four holes and source appropriate bolts to ensure my speakers were mounted securely to the pedestal which was really annoying.

The stands feel a bit flimsy but for the satellite speaker however they do their job well.

These speaker stands are great.

Very happy with these paired with 3020 speakers sounds incredible.

I recently purchased a pair of acoustics 3020 speakers and was using them with heybrook stands. They sounded great but were not at ear height when listening from my sofa. These q3000st speaker stands did the job and even improved the bass response performance. If you already have or are considering buying a pair of the excellent acoustics 3020 speakers i urge you to spend the extra £100 on these stands.

Solid stands, well built , shame there nearly as dear as the speakers .

Decent speaker stands, works well with the q3010/3020 they’re supposed to be paired with. Could do with a little heavier wadding inside them; there’s plenty of wadding but it isn’t as dense as it could be. But pretty awesome for the price.

Q ACOUSTICS Q Acoustics M2 Soundbar – Great sound, only minor quibbles

Brought q acoustics m2 as a replacement for my 3 year old burnt out canton dm75. Not only the m2 sound better when being used with tv and bluetooth music being streamed from my ipad but the hdmi connect enables control from the tv remote. Surround sound can be obtained my turning on in the tv setting. The only slight negative is the small and flimsy remote control when compared to the cantons. I can only hope it does not overheat inside and last longer than the canton.

Really pleased with this speaker, has a great depth of sound especially for movies. Also bluetooth music from iphone through apple music, sounds really good. Only marked down as i would like an onscreen display when adjusting volume and could look nicer.

After a lot of research i bought this to upgrade a flat screen tv speakers. The quality of finish is good and solid, with a rich and full sound. Haven’t cranked it up fully, but have not noticed any distortion on about 75% volume. The remote ( as described in a number of reviews) is pretty basic, and i haven’t notice and great difference between the two pre-set equaliser settings. Despite this it is a great improvement on the tv speakers and, for the price, i believe provides good sound.

New style sony tvs with the slim legs facing rearward do not fit this sound base. We have a 2018 49” tv and the 2 legs slip sideways and are not supported by the base. Really annoyingly if the edges of the m2 weren’t curved they would hold it. I’ve had to use a piece of ply to support the back tv legs.

Excellent piece of equipment, makes watching television more pleasurable with excellent sound quality.

If you want to significantly improve the sound from your tv but don’t want a surround sound system then this soundbase is an excellent choice for you. I have an lg 55inch oled ( 2017 model ) and the difference in sound is amazing. Very easy to set up , connect with hdmi ( to arc input ) , make sure your tv audio out is set to 2 speaker setting and that’s it. There are settings on the back to change depending on position of soundbase and a volume boost if needed. The vocals are much clearer , you can hear a lot more detail and those deep based sounds are a wow. You can also connect other devices via bluetooth so great for listening to audio books or music from your ipad. Be aware that q acoustics recommend that the tv stand should not overhang the base ( i can’t put my tv on it ) , but it sits nicely on a shelf underneath. Only downside is the naf remote but i can live with that.

  • A great compromise on a full 5.1 surround sound system
  • a surround sound system then this soundbase is an excellent choice for you
  • Great sound eventually from this M2 – very susceptible to room effects.

I am so happy with my q accoustics m2 soundbase. This is a fabulous piece o equipment. The sound is so clear and non fatiguing. I was watching silent witness last night which has a theme tune that would make most tvs and soundbars shudder. It just sailed brilliantly through this audio test. Never a quiver, never a step out of line. No you don’t get surround sound, fireworks or theatrics (unless they in the plot). What you do get is wonderful sound quality, vocal and instrument separation with no fatigue. As a hifi buff i’ve heard many audio systems and this is the nearest thing i’ve heard to hifi in tv sound. It doesn’t smack you round the ears. It just gently makes you wonder whether you would want to listen to tv any other way. Congratulations to q accoustics who incidentally i’d never heard of before.

Went for this to create an improvement over standard tv speakers. Improvement is massivebuild wise, the unit is weighty and well finished, no panel gaps or cheap feeling plastics, not as well built as something like the canton dm55 (which was also in consideration), but given the lack of connectivity and reliability on the canton units, i am more than happy with my choice. Sound wise, it gives out a ‘balanced yet meaty’ tonality, not an overpowering bass, but enough to make the spitfires in dunkirk sound like they were tearing through my front room. The only reason this is getting 4 rather than 5 stars is the frankly laughable remote, seriously, it is like something you got bundled with a cheap chinese in car tv/dvd combo in the early 2000s and lack of any form of volume indicator on the front of the unit when changing volume.

Improved sound for an older sony bravia, which does not have an hdmi arc output (i. A usual hdmi will not work). Luckily, the bar has phono and toslink inputs, but apparently hdmi arc would provide the ‘best’ experience.

I did loads of research on sound bars and sound bases. This is a new product and it won best soundbase 2017 in what hi-fi magazine, so that, some favourable user reviews and a demo made me choose it. Initially when i brought the unit home, i found it had too much bass and, as you can’t adjust the bass and treble, i was concerned. But then i realised that a switch on the back of the unit (designed to give different sound settings depending on where it is housed) actually does effectively give you three bass settings. I reduced the bass down using this and now i am very happy (but a shame the manual doesn’t tell you that though). After i did this i realised how good the unit sounds. The sound is spacious and not overly treated with showy effects making it a pure and powerful sound. I have tested it with various types of films and it sounds great. The other nice surprise is how good it makes music sound when played through it via bluetooth. The sound is nice and detailed and i have been hearing things i hadn’t before.

Great sound and simple to use but to high for my use.

Installation and set-up very straight- forward. Works well with my eight year old panasonic vieira.

A massive improvement to the tv internal speakers. I’m even considering buying another one for the lounge tv.

Overall sound bar is worth the money. Sound is great and can be heard all around the room. Bluetooth works great along side optical audio and hdmi. Would recommend for a fairly big room as is a bit over kill for a small room.

Easy to manage controls and useful side contacts for additional equipment but with fewer sound options than some competitors.

A wee bit big to sit under my samsung tv, but that’s a minor issue.

We’ll built good sound but sadly the remote is a joke.

What Hi-Fi? 2017 Product of the Year – Best Soundbase. The M2 Soundbase delivers stunning TV and audio sound performance.

Makes my old hi-fi redundant – (i play classical cds through panasonic recorder.

Not the best sound but will do job.

It’s robust and it is a huge improvement on my sony tv sound. With this unit i can listen to the dialogue with the volume much higher, which is super during this current and dramatic world cup. The sound is super clear with virtually no distortion, compared to using this the sony tv without it. I have found that positioning this unit directly under the tv, gives this unit it’s best effect. All in all, i am delighted with this product. I consider it, given the above improvements, excellent value for money. It also looks the bizi recommend this product without hesitation.

This isn’t a surround sound system but it does serve to drastically improve your existing stereo experience from your tv. I have used many surround sound systems at various budgets and from a practicality and clutter point of view i am very pleased with the m2. The sound output is very clear, the dialogue is crisp and the bass is immersive without being overpowering. I set it up out of the box in less than 5 minutes using an optical toslink cable (not supplied) and other than adjusting a couple of switches at the rear of the unit, it was ready to go. Operation is simple and colour coded with an light indicator at the top front of the unit. Pleasingly it automatically turns on and off when i turn on my tv – similar operation can be achieved using the hdmi (arc) cable (included) if compatible with your tv. I didn’t use this option as i didn’t have a spare hdmi input on my tv. This unit is very very loud and may not be for you if you want to use at very low volumes at a night time. Bluetooth/nfc operation is also very simple using the pairing button at the back (which can be a pain to access if you are placing it in a tv cabinet). It also has a very nice natural sound when used as a bluetooth speaker for music.

Could not have expected better, was looking for a soundbar/soundbase for a large tv in my bedroom as-with recent recording techniques the dictation was muffled and overshadowed by background music via tv speakers, i always trust reviews on what hi-fi magazine and this was product of the year 2017 stating that dialogue was firmly fixed at just the right level and sufficient bass provided not to take over. Turn it up and wow what an incredible sound adding a further dimension to films etc. Cannot recommend enough, buy with confidence.

Recommend you check the size before you buy ( was larger than i expected)but highly recommend.

The M2 doubles as an all in one music system for music lovers streaming high quality music via Bluetooth APTX or NFC for Android devices. So when the TV is off, you can stream your favourite music.

Very good sound,quite compatable with a lot more expensive brands,would highly recommend.

Fast delivery, excellent quality.

Easily installed when instructions were followed. Fits neatly under tv within stand. If left on standby no need to use provided clicker. Arrived earlier than expected in well constructed packaging.

Update: downgraded to 3 star from initial 5had this for 9 months now, and a few issues have started to plague me. The auto power off is infuriating, and it won’t always power back on via the remote (batteries are fine) or sometimes even has to be power cycled. This has now started to happen more often – currently about every 3 weeks it needs a full power off. Also just to note, i recently purchased a circa 1990 sony micro stereo (cd/md/tuner) from a heart foundation shop for £16 mainly because the speaker grilles match the decor in my kitchen. Hooked it up to the small tv in the kitchen just for fun initially, and i have to say this 1990’s stereo that had been thrown in the bin by someone is better than this £300 soundbari’ve been living with this for a week and thought i’d update my review accordingly. At the price, there’s nothing better in my opinion. Clear and balanced sound throughout the frequency spectrum. Nor does it fill your room with earth shattering bass, but the bass is still there. There’s also quite a bit of mid range detail that appears to be lacking in many sub £600 sound bars.

The m2 has replaced my denon soundbase which developed random cut-outs and loud “pops”. The denon’s sound was wider with a little more bass and was generally more enveloping. However, as with many others, there was no way i could put up with this apparently common problem. As you would expect, the m2 produces a far superior sound to that of my samsung tv and was easy to set up. Using the hdi lead means the m2 is automatically controlled by the tv remote so no “remote-learning” involved. Hopefully it will last a little longer than the denon.

Beautifully balanced stereo sound. Voices are much clearer (my hearing impaired other half no longer needs subtitles). If the source is good enpugh on orchestral music you can pick out every instrument and they sound like they are playing in the room. Really couldn’t ask for more and a bargain at this price point.

Rather than repeat other reviews, for me there’s two issues really. Soundbases tend to be put under the tv so where the tv is sited is where the soundbase goes. Initially this really didn’t work with where the tv was sited originally. The m2 was on top of a av unit with the tv on top of that. The output went very loud but was harsh in the mid range and there was little bass response. Adjusting the bass adjust slider on the rear didn’t do anything to the perceived level of bass in the listening position. After incrementally moving the tv and soundbase about a foot nearer, eventually the sound changed for the better. Movie eq is the default sound and its really good for movies and i was surprised that music (classical and rock) is best left on movie eq too.

BMR speaker drivers provide 180 degree room-filling sound, stunning stereo separation and clarity, but the inbuilt subwoofer gives a depth of soundscape that will transform your listening experience

Had this about two months now. Speaker quality is excellent. My tv is stuck in the corner of my lounge and was always difficult to understand. Only wish i could set the default source. Other than that is thoroughly recommended.

For £ 208 you can not expect more.

Nice sound not too much base, (which i like) clear sound sound and the volume goes pretty big.

“Excellent speaker. When teamed up with my 2020i bookshelf , Good sound, very effective, Clean and controlled”

Good looking speakers with very pleasing sound quality.

If you are missing bass in your life. I was blown away by a sound system i played on earlier this year and on return realised there was a serious lack of bass in my life (sounds ridiculous i know). I received this as a birthday gift to complete the pair of 2020i’s in my kitchen. The sub doesn’t go really low and definitely isn’t a room shaker but what you do get is a superb bass which is deep and well rounded. It is low and powerful enough to experience most music as it should sound and will enhance a set of 2020i’s no end. I find myself spending hours auditioning music and find it hard to leave the kitcheni am running my set up with an old nad 3020 amplifier but will be looking to upgrade soon. Can’t wait to hear the difference.

My music and tv system sounds really exciting now but not perfect at all volumes but i really think i need. My first non-japanese bit of kit. China has come a long way and helped make quality affordable, but i keeping my warranty details safe just in case. Frequency response is 35hz to 200hz so suitable for smaller bookshelf speakers (i have some retro wall mounted teac ones) who’s sound had started to drops off at bass guitars. My music and tv system sounds really exciting now but not perfect at all volumes but i really think i need better bookshelf speakers.

This sw stands out for the way it can be adjusted for different uses (home cinema, parties, classical music, etc. ) and different room acoustics, with continuously variable controls for level, cut-off frequency and phase. Or if that’s too complicated for you there are switches to select standard combinations. It’s also a different shape to most sws, which i found easier to accommodate that the usual cube, despite being quite large. And finally, it does do the job.

I bought this to replace my now dead rel q100 which i had for 15 years. This doesn’t go nearly as low but it is low enough. The base is clean; quite clinical actually but this is a character i like. I fear the sound signature may annoy some because it lacks any distinct character, its just there, cleans and unobtrusive. Setting up the unit is a breeze, with a switch that adjust the character of the sound depending on whether using an dsp processor or traditional stereo amplifiers. This does appear to work as i use a yamaha soundbar and switch was set to stereo. The bass was too unruly and not matter how much adjusting of the frequency crossover fixed it. Worried, i decided to read the manual; changed the switch, adjusted my frequency on my processor to match the unit and it was night and day.

It’s a recommandation of the english review what hifi. The english speakers are very superb.

I bought this subwoofer to help my q acoustics 2010i out in the lower frequencies and it does so wonderfully. The first thing you’ll notice when you take it out of the box is that it has a very odd shape. It is much deeper than most subs and thanks to the two stacked 7′ woofers also a bit higher. On the flip side it is quite narrow, making it feel like a large suitcase. So make sure you have enough room to place it, because the fact you could place a normal, cube-shaped sub, doesn’t necessarily mean that this one will fit. It has a very hefty feel to it and the walnut finish is just as good as on the other speakers in the range. It has both hi-level en low-level inputs. I had turn down the gain level to about 10 o’clock, otherwise it was too loud, my room is quite small, so this sub should have a large enough output to fill a medium sized room with ease, but it might struggle if it is larger than average. This is a ported subwoofer, which means it is best used for films, since it has more of a rumbling sound than it’s sealed brethren, which is preferable for films, but not for music.

My previous sub, with a 10inch driver, had developed a fault. I was unable to find a dealer that actually sold a subwoofer, let alone help in my repair. I could only find sound bar/subwoofer. Or satellite speakers/subwoofer. The new subs colour had to fit in with the rooms decor, but more importantly had to do the job. I actually started off, with 2 a4 sheets taped together, and measureing everything round in the house, pots pans sausepans etc, to get the sizes i wanted. Then drew a circle round a ten inch item. Inside that at the edge,1 7inch/8 inch and 2 17cms (170mm)and then viewed the result. Some subwoofers do only have a 7/8 inch driver.

Impressive, best bang for the buck. Solid build, great sound, being 3 weeks but i keep on smiling everytime i switch them on for a good movie, cannot wait to receive their surround little brothers.

Sound is getting better day by day. These would be five stars if only they had made the cones look prettier. I know its a nit pick but other speakers costing a lot less look so much better but its the sound you pay for and for the money it doesn’t get much better than these. The sound just gets better each day and they have a great finish and lovely weighty quality about them which i like very much.

Music never sounded so good. For some time i’ve been using a surround sound system and speakers to play my music. I decided i needed a dedicated music system so i boughtthe q acoustics 2050i speakers, a yamaha cdn-500 cd / network player and yamaha as500 amp. It’s impossible to say what component has made the biggest difference but the combination sound great. I’ve bi-wired the speakers using studio quality cable. Most of my music resides on a nas drive and wherever possible i play flac encoded files. The sound quality is incredible. The separation between the instruments is very clear and i can hear detail like i never have before. I listen to a wide range of music from punk / hard rock, jazz, folk and country. These speakers improve everything.

Had these for over a year now. Solid, beautiful, punchy and raw. Used only in stereo at the moment. The complete spectrum of audio coming from these has stopped me buying a centre, sub or rears for just now. Matched them with a pioneer vsx-923-k and ‘qed profile 79 strand’ and terminated them with ‘qed metal airloc’ banana plugs (go to audiovisualonline. Uk for customized speaker cables and terminations). Music never sounded sooo goodthese seem to just get better with age.

Q Acoustics 2020i, Great Speakers, Great Sound and design

Husband delighted with gift. Good quality sound and great value for money.

They are the best speakers i’ve ever owned. I have them on the dedicated qa stands which helps a lot – they actually bolt on and the whole set up is very sturdy.

Change of tone for an old system. I have as yet not had too much time with these speakers. I have, however put a good selection of my music through these boxes. So far i have been pleasantly surprised with the results. I ran quiet mood music by enya to the full blooded massed pipes and drums and brass bands at the edinburgh military tattoo. I did not manage full volume as the neighbors might have complained but the speakers carried all with no effort even from my rather old mediocre old amplifier. I would recommend these speakers to any one who has an elderly system and who would like to refresh the sound in a relatively inexpensive way.

Comments from buyers

“Great Speakers at this price, Fantastic speakers, Fantastic Sound Quality for not much money!”

I use these in a surround system with the matching centre speaker and they perform very well. I do have a sub however they go down fairly deep due to their depth providing a bit more volume so are good at handling most music and effects required. I am very happy with these and i think you’s need to spend a fair amount more to find a noticeable improvement.

Very pleased with these – they perform very well indeed. Very pleased with these – they perform very well indeed. Not sure how they would cope in a large room but perfect in my modest home.

Love the detail and fast response. I use them with a nad amplifier and an old passive canton sub-woofer. Do not get complaints about connectors.

Great buy – excellent service. . Lovely sound on vinyl 🙂 fab purchase. Walnut finish particularly nice. Like the idea that q acoustics are a british company selling quality products.

I’ve been listening to audiophile hi-fi from budget to mid-prices – to a few high-end systems – these little wonders are stunnin. All that really needs to be said about these superb speakers. I’ve been listening to audiophile hi-fi from budget to mid-prices – to a few high-end systems – these little wonders are stunningly good on decent stands (good ones about the same price as the speakers) and fed with a decent front end signal and good amplification. They would shame many others at 3 times the price.

Change of tone for an old system. I have as yet not had too much time with these speakers. I have, however put a good selection of my music through these boxes. So far i have been pleasantly surprised with the results. I ran quiet mood music by enya to the full blooded massed pipes and drums and brass bands at the edinburgh military tattoo. I did not manage full volume as the neighbors might have complained but the speakers carried all with no effort even from my rather old mediocre old amplifier. I would recommend these speakers to any one who has an elderly system and who would like to refresh the sound in a relatively inexpensive way.

They are the best speakers i’ve ever owned. I have them on the dedicated qa stands which helps a lot – they actually bolt on and the whole set up is very sturdy.

Phenomenal sound for the price: work well with cheap amps as well. . I have a couple of these connected to the telly through the headphone socket – via a super-cheap class d amp (£25), and they sound astonishing. They are so good i got a q-acoustics home cinema package (7. 1, using a denon amp) which also sounds stunning. For the price, they are a steal.

Great speakers, great sound and design. Excellent service from the seller peter tyson. Delivered next day via the bet courier imo dpd. The speakers sound superb, i’ve tested them in my system, use them in a 7. 1 setup and used the irene scene in black hawk down, excellent , the speakers are well built, a little bit darker than shown in the picture maybe but this is a good thing.

Fantastic speakers for a decent price. I am no hifi expert but like the sound. I use an fairly ok trio amp from late 70s to power. Changed from a pair of ok pure speakers. I hear a lot of nuances in music i did not hear before.

Great sounding small monitor speakers that are great to have sitting on your desk for high quality, clear sound.

I use these in a surround system with the matching centre speaker and they perform very well.

Great speakers at a terrific price. . Having recently refurbished the living room and cleared out the av receiver and surround speakers, i settled for a soundbase for tv enhanced sound and playing music. It works well for the tvs but not so good for music. So, again not wanting to fill the room with ‘bits’ and cables, i decided on a small, simple but quality amp connected to these speakers. They look good, feel good and most importantly, sound terrific. They cope well with the full frequency range and are quality speakers at an affordable price. The usual great service from amazon, they arrived within two days as promised.

Superb speakers for the price. . The 2020i’s are well built and sound fantastic. They punch well above their price bracket and whathifi are right to grant them a 5* review. Thanks to the deep enclosure design they produce enough bass to be used without an additional sub. Mine are connected to a denon rcd-m39dab using qad micro cable and i couldn’t be happier.

Q Acoustics 2010I Compact Bookshelf Speaker Stereo – Excellent small speakers

Bought for a vinyl setup with a 70’s technics amp and an 80’s dual 501 turntable. The results are lovely, perfect for a small room with plenty of soundscape. They are small speakers but the sound is tight and punchy. I have mine in a bookcase without the foam baffles in the back (a little boxy sounding with them in) and there are little booms sometimes but for my money these are craking little speakers. The finish is top notch too.

Bought a second set for my folks after enjoying so much in own home.

Husband very happy with his xmas gift he wanted it early they. Husband very happy with his xmas gift he wanted it early they are so good value and excellent sound quality.

  • Cracking little speaker.
  • Excellent small speakers

Excellent sound for the size. Excellent sound for the size. I agree with whathifi that they are best value for the price range to £200.

Excellent speakers, excellent delivery.

Good things come in small parcels. 5 big stars for these little fellas. Hooked em up to my nad amp and cd with some nice cable. What a difference from my old tdl’s. Listened to some old faves to check em out, superb. Was like listening to them a fresh, heraing new sounds and excellent clarity of the vocals.

Ugly, but reasonable sounding speakers for a small office.

Love these speakers, bought them as a replacement for a pair of jpw sp1’s which were great in their day but were passed their best after 25 years service. I have them in my home office hooked up to my onkyo cr-725dab mini hifi and also my pc, they easily cope with the power of the onkyo and deliver a great sound.

Excellent speakers for price, sound great out the box. I think nice design too, retro modern.

Had these paired with a pioneer a-10-k 50w stereo amplifier and the sound is sick. The exterior quality is also nice.

Very nice product, sturdy build quality and great sound.

Firstly you can connect the speaker cables using the mounting hole and screw terminals. I bought these to replace the same sized denon badged mission speakers which came with my 10yr old denon m31. They were fine but i hoped newer speakers would breath new life into the old kit. To my ears the sound is very noticeably improved. Crisper with speech and a warmer and more pleasing sound to music. I have them in a bookshelf and because they are within 200mm of the rear wall i followed the instructions and fitted the foam bungs in the rear ports.

These speakers were bought as i have a baby and didn’t want to faf around protecting and strapping my floor standees. Endless to say i won’t bother putting my floor standees back as these are absolutely amazing. I have them wired into my av amp for everything in the living room and the sound is crisp, clear and simply beautiful, whether it’s the tv, mp3, turntable or xbox.

I thought i would have to return them and get the bigger ones until thirty seconds into gareki followed by rodney crowell to confirm that these speakers are just what i need in my man-cave. The bass isn’t earth-shattering but strong enough out of those little 100 mm drivers. The overall sound is clear and very pleasing, not to say amazing. They handle the dynamic range of classical music extraordinarily well. I’ve been listening to them all afternoon, playing a variety of material and i haven’t found anything that phases these little giants. Definitely the best buy of the year for me.

Love them easy to hook up and sound great for the size.

The item arrived on monday 3th march. I have been waiting for ten days, since 22th febraury. Mrw’s carrier asked me if i could pick up the parcel at his office, then he would’nt have to go to my house. It looks like someone tried to open the box but the items were there (?). The speakers are small enough for my little room. I would like to buy q2020i and wall supports but this seller doesn’t send to my country. I’m looking for one seller that sends these items to spain.

I can strongly recommend this small speakers. Sound is lively and detailed with a relaxed drive. Choral music and voices it can handle with authority. Complex orchestra music works great too. Enough of bass in the overall soundpicture. I heard many other bookshelves, but these rock.

Q Acoustics 2010 Speakers : Really good sound quality and perfect for a PC setup at

Good sound, all over the range of frequencies & quantity, & for equally speech & audio they thoroughly stay up to the opinions. You will want to get speaker cable independently, the advertisement did not make this extremely clear – but they were pretty valuable in answering my email. Obtaining examine up on speakers /cables (i required to ), i would say it really is worth investing in respectable cable – i observed 10m of outstanding top quality cable from my regional b/q for approx £16 – it is really absolutely well worth the time to shop all around as costs fluctuate wildly, the exact same things from an digital store would have expense £60. Connecting the cable was a small little bit difficult – but not as well poor & it truly is a just one off task. The excellent of the speaker cable (& hence the seem high quality) is proportional to the diameter of the cable (furthermore a few other things). As the cable fixes to the speaker connectors by likely via a hole there is probably a max diameter that will healthy, so if you want mega quality cable – most likely ask for suggestions on max guage or using connector clips. The guide offered helpful information about positioning the speakers to get the best out of them the use of stands or wall mounting is recommended – but not probable in my lounge – but they audio fab anyway. The speakers also look outstanding – v shiny black. A pair of white gloves comes with the speakers so no fingerprints i am incredibly pleased with this order, completely encouraged.

For the selling price and size, no issues.

I acquired these speakers on assistance from previous entrepreneurs of the denon d-m38dab-cd device,irecieved the speakers & was impressed with the the guidance notes , the white gloves for handling(awesome contact), but in truth following close examination these models are extremely wellmade. & search the biz , ,a good fat , & fantastic bottom recessed connection studs,. The sound ,clarity & dynamics are a joy , these speakers are by much the best in their class,& perform close to units two times the price tag , extremely suggested, a winnerrab a.Here are the specifications for the Q Acoustics 2010 Speakers:

Really fantastic sound quality and best for a pc set up at. Truly excellent audio top quality and best for a computer setup at residence. This is not a significant powerful device so not suitable for television room for occasion. But wonderful for my dwelling workplace.

Wonderful audio quality on a spending plan. I recently acquired these speakers as part of the 2000 cinema speaker deal from richer seems (i am going to do a evaluation for that total program together with every little thing else as shortly as i’ve obtained it all connected and operate it in for a superior several hrs). Quickly i will be transferring into a new, significantly bigger bed room in my residence so i determined to get a good house cinema procedure, presently waiting around for my panasonic 50 inch vt20, acquired the no cost 3d bluray participant and a sony strdh810 receiver to push the speakers. As i am waiting for a relative to go to a further aspect of the home so that i can start off work on the space and all of the packing containers for everything have been sitting beside my mattress taunting me i resolved to attempt out a pair of the 2010s on my denon dm31 (related with some hitachi oxygen no cost cables) and the sound from these minor beauties is phenomonal. For what i think is the past 6 many years i’ve been using the mission speakers that arrived with the cd reciever, which have been usually alright and did an alright work of participating in my audio, i have been rather pleased with them due to the fact i purchased them. When i related the 2010s and set on some bruno mars they sounded so significantly extra clear, comprehensive and controlled than the missions. The soundstage is considerably broader than all those speakers, the bass is no for a longer period just a hum that potters alongside, it fits with the music, it isn’t going to stand out as prominently as it did right before and this is just out of the box. The q acoustics also seem louder at decrease volumes, this may possibly be because of to the extra enveloping area of audio the 2010s create. The treble has the proper quantity of sparkle, seems properly pronounced, the mids too are just in which they ought to be. Each individual audio these speakers develop is effectively balanced and entire of depth that i’ve under no circumstances read from my hifi.
