7000i Series 5.1 Cinema Package

The New Q Acoustics ‘7000i’
Best Style Package £700-£1000
What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision, Awards 2013
Home Cinema 5.1 Speaker Package

Award Winning Loudspeaker Company Q Acoustics is pleased to introduce its new ‘7000i’ 5.1 Style Home Cinema Speaker package.

"The Q7000i is a stunning package at this price"

"you wouldn’t think you were listening to a relatively small speaker system"

"Got £900 to spend on a sub sat package? Spend it here"
What Hi-Fi? Sound And Vision October 2013

"The Q Acoustics is a mighty performer."

"The control and smoothness it brings is unusual for such small speakers and especially ones at such a sensible price point."

"build quality is excellent"

"Switch to stereo and the Q7000i is superb not just 'good for a sub sat system' but a seriously convincing piece of stereo, with a soundstage and cohesion that is a world away from 2.1 systems of old. If you are looking for a system that is equally capable for music and movies, I honestly feel that it breaks new ground for sub sat systems running in two channel."

BT3

A hybrid audio solution Q Acoustics' active stereo speaker pair is an alternative to a soundbar. Adrian Justins reports Active bookshelf loudspeakers are an unorthodox alternative to a soundbar. But, assuming you have room for them on or near your TV, there is an obvious advantage in that no compromise has been made to size or shape. And while they look more retro than Gene Hunt sipping a Babycham, their innards are distinctly cutting-edge, with a 50W per-channel power amplifier (in the right speaker), aptX-compatible Bluetooth and a low-distortion DAC. Wired connections run to optical audio, stereo phono and 3.5mm analogue stereo line level inputs, plus a sub output. Each speaker has a 1in tweeter and 4in midrange/bass unit. TV viewing is substantially improved when using the optical hook-up. With ITV's cycling coverage I could comfortably hear the commentary whilst identifying the switch from helicopters to motorbikes, with the sound of spectators’ cheering coming through. Delivery is smoother than Bradley Wiggins’ time trialling action. Muttered dialogue in dramas such as Veep benefits hugely from the extra clarity whilst Blu-ray and DVD playback is punchy and dynamic. The Incredibles soundtrack is deftly handled with the subtle details of Bob Parr’s office activity contrasting with the high-pitched buzzing of the machines chasing Dash through the jungle. And musically, these speakers deliver too – Lady Ga Ga’s mezzo-soprano tones of You and I effortlessly filled my room, showcasing a nicely full-range and fulsome sound. The Q-BT3 does what its makers intend, being both a neat sonic upgrade for a TV and doubling up brilliantly for stereo music. Bit pricey, though.

7000 Series 5.1 Cinema Package

Q Acoustics - Brilliant News! Home Cinema Choice Awards 2012
The Winner is: Q Acoustics 7000 Home Cinema Speakers

We are absolutely delighted to announce that the Q Acoustics 7000 5.1 home cinema speaker package has won another major award. Already the recipient of the What Hi-Fi 'Loudspeaker of the Year' award; the 7000 is now acclaimed by the hugely influential Home Cinema Choice magazine in their 2012 Awards.

Award Winner 2012 - Best Speaker Package under £1000

Describing the 7000 speakers the magazine states:
"As a brand, Q Acoustics has had a short life-span, but it's already earned a legion of fans. With products like the Q7000 it's easy to see why. This is a stylish sub/sat package with a tempting price tag (£800 for a full 5.1) and a performance that needs to heard to be believed. It may even make you wonder if you really need floorstanding speakers. In one of the most fiercely-fought markets in home entertainment, Q Acoustics has the weapon to take on any challengers." The unrivalled Q Acoustics 7000 5.1 speaker package has now won both major home cinema awards - why would your customers buy anything else?

"I was impressed by the power and depth...you might think these were coffin-sized floorstanders"
Home Cinema Choice Magazine, March 2012

"Simply the best pound-for-pound speaker package of any type we've tested"
What Hi-Fi? Sound And Vision, October 2011

"If you genuinely care about audio quality, the difference the 7000 Cinema System can make to your home theatre setup is staggering."

Q Acoustics 7000S Subwoofer

"Removed from the partnering satellite speakers, the 7000 reveals itself to be equally accomplished. The interesting design results in a clever and flexible subwoofer that combines a usefully small footprint with an attractive design and excellent build quality. It is the sonic performance that really stands out however. This is a fabulous balance of depth and speed that really helps bring out the best in a multichannel system. We asked the question whether the Q7000 subwoofer was good enough to be considered outside of a matching Q Acoustics system and the answer is undoubtedly yes."
