Q Acoustics is not like most other loudspeaker companies.
Q Acoustics is a young brand. No heritage. No tradition. No old black and white photographs. We believe that is the secret of our success.
Q Acoustics was established in 2006; not by a wealthy music lover, hobbyist designer or retired rock musician.
No. Q Acoustics was founded by professional engineers and businessmen with the sole aim of developing a highly successful loudspeaker brand based on outstanding audio performance and best in class. It’s that simple, a completely focussed understanding of acoustic engineering and inspirational design has driven our remarkable success. We recognised the only way Q Acoustics could possibly enjoy commercial accomplishment was to design and produce loudspeaker products that were, without question, superior to their similarly priced competitors. So that is what we did and for ten years audiophiles around the world have enjoyed Q Acoustics for its innovative and high performance loudspeakers.
The First 10 Years
2006 The first products to be launched were the 1000 series, a competitively priced range of Hi-fi and Home Cinema cabinet loudspeakers, which soon became best sellers.
2009 The 2000 series introduction brings with it refined technologies of its award-winning 1000 series predecessor, to set a new standard for our celebrated loudspeaker line.Next came QTV 2. Speakers designed to improve the audio performance of flat panel TV’s; a FIRST for the industry utilising BMR, a wide dispersion driver technology perfectly suited to AV products, ensuring the entire room was filled with TV sound.
"Some of the most forward-thinking products in existence."
What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision (November 2009), written when we were just 3 years old.
2011 Q Acoustics launched the 7000 series; a 5.1 style speaker system, a triumph of form marrying function, containing the latest technological acoustic breakthroughs from the Q Acoustics engineering team. It was promptly awarded the What Hi-Fi ultimate accolade as “Product of the Year”. The 2000 series became the 2000i series as we completed an exhaustive overhaul to all audio-sensitive elements. The Q Acoustics team continued to innovate and create loudspeakers with superior acoustic quality, reproducing recordings as natural as the original performance.
2012 The Q Acoustics team announce a pioneering range of Install speakers providing pristine, audiophile sound, from speakers that fit seamlessly into your environment.
2013 The Concept Series was born beginning with Concept 20 showcasing ground-breaking cabinet making skills, introducing another industry first with GelcoreTM technology, massively reducing cabinet distortion for the purest sound. Recognised by What Hi-Fi with the ultimate accolade as “ Product of the Year” the following year.
This year also saw the launch of the Q Acoustic’s team’s first powered Bluetooth hi-fi speakers with the QBT3.
2014 The team expanded the Concept series with the Concept 40 floorstanding speaker, one of the most remarkable Q Acoustic’s loudspeakers to date. To provide the ultimate Home Cinema experience the Concept Centre was added to the growing range.
2014 also saw the launch of our very first ‘one-piece’ in the shape of the M4 soundbar incorporating BMR driver technology, with that superior room-filling quality. The quickly critically acclaimed M4 soundbar progressed to win What Hi-Fi ‘Product of the Year’ twice!
"It’s amazing what Q Acoustics has accomplished in eight years."
What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision (May 2014)
2015 The 3000 HiFi and Home Cinema series are launched once again building on the class-leading innovation and craftsmanship to create world-class loudspeakers.
Our success is not simply a matter of excellent sound quality. Though our history and tradition is built over a single decade, we have created the Q Acoustics team with, we believe, the world’s best loudspeaker designers gaining access to the most advanced design and engineering facilities.
So here we are, ten years old with world-renowned audiophile speakers for HiFi and Home Cinema, Media speakers for screen sound enhancement and Install speakers, all built around the Q Acoustics commitment to the best quality audio, no matter what the format.
As we approach our teenage years, Q Acoustics is still developing world-class products and we believe that we are just reaching our prime.
