Q Acoustics introduces ‘Concept 40’, an elegant new floorstanding loudspeaker which sets new standards of sonic performance at its price.
Award-winning pedigree In common with the Concept 20, its award-winning little brother, the new Concept 40’s unparalleled soundstage and sheer
musicality is achieved by incorporating outstanding drive units into a lacquered, State-of-the-Art, ‘GelcoreTM Construction’, ultra-low
‘GelcoreTM Construction, specially developed for acoustic enclosures, is in effect a ‘cabinet within a cabinet’, separated by
a resonance absorbing compound. This enables the drive units to simply reproduce music, unencumbered by the level of cabinet
induced distortions found in conventional designs.
The ‘Concept 20’ is a special loudspeaker which goes beyond anything that Q Acoustics has achieved before. It’s a beautifully styled product which we confidently believe provides a level of sonic performance previously thought impossible at its price point.
The Concept 20 loudspeaker cabinet incorporates ‘Gelcore Construction’TM In effect a ‘cabinet within a cabinet’, with a special resonancecancelling compound adhering between the inner and outer shells. This cabinet is both rigid and exhibits extremely low resonance. The latter is achieved through the resonance-cancelling compound absorbing the kinetic energy (movement) generated within the cabinet by the drive units, then dispersing it by converting it into heat.
The Q Acoustics Q-BT3 is a bookshelf Bluetooth stereo speaker set designed to deliver high fidelity reproduction of music, and high quality audio from a TV or set top box. The Q-BT3 is a result of careful development and winning heritage, designed in the UK by Q Acoustics.
The basis for this is based on a PHO-700 complex additional power supply, which is already used in the PHO-8. We have deliberately omitted an AC adapter and specially designed and developed a power supply. This is connected using a 9-pin DIN cable to the phono section. The voltage is again specially prepared in the power supply, so that ripple and hum of the electricity network play no role and the phono section is supplied with "clean power".
The PHO-700 presents itself in the same dimensions as the power supply. However, is due to the tube lines, combined with the known window which gives a free view to the tube. In the signal path a 12AU7 tube is used as a dual triode, which takes direct influence on the sound. High-quality components (e.g. from Nichicon or Wima) improve the parameters of noise ratio and amplification again. Of course, the PHO-700 is switchable via a switch on the rear panel for MM and MC cartridges.
The integrated amplifier X-i90 is the second model of the new X-Line range. Its sober and pure cosmetics gives it a luxurious and timeless touch.
Technically new and decidedly audiophile design, the integrated
amplifier X-i90 will delight for budget conscious music lovers wanting
to maximise their investment.
Equipped with eight power transistors, the integrated amplifier X-i90 delivers a power of 2 x 90 watts into 8 Ohms and its « Hi Bias » function will allow it to supply easily most of the loudspeakers found on the market.
Offering a DAC, and various analog inputs, the X-i90 will enable to meet the consumers demand.
Its complete remote control device will make it easier to use.
A medium sized bookshelf design that exudes quality. The beautifully finished, low resonance cabinet encapsulates the 25mm ferro-fluid cooled tweeter and precision engineered 125mm bass driver to produce a speaker with extended bass, an open mid-range, astonishing transient response and exceptional high frequency clarity. The 2000ST or 2000WB allow the 2020 to be stand or wall mounted.
