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 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.
Replaced... The most successful Vincent amplifier of all time
Under the leadership of Frank Blöhbaum, who is the developer of the Thorens electronics and the Auto-Bias control of the T.A.C. tube amplifiers, the circuit design was completely revised and improved. Thus, in the output stage section a phase reserve of 90° was reached by making various changes. This phase reserve provides a much better transient response to complex loads (loudspeakers).
Because the amplifier always works virtually during normal operation in state of the transient oscillation - Music represents transient pulses – the improvements can be heard elementary. Musicality and sound are much better than its predecessor. Even the most difficult loudspeakers can be powered easily. The amplifier always dominates the complex load (loudspeaker) without sounding strained.
The preamplifier section was fitted in the second stage with 6N1P tubes. The greater voltage level provides better signal stability. This results in a higher spectral purity of the signal which causes a further improvement in fine detail in the sound. Here, the tube-like musicality is maintained and an analytical coldness never comes in the sound. Another advantage of the improved circuit design is a greatly improved signal to noise ratio. It results in an excellent playback quality also on high efficiency speakers such as the Impulse series of Dynavox: Noise was once. Enjoy explosive live performance as a result of excellent dynamics.
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.
Elegant, timeless, clean technology, perfection for an end stage. Here valves create the typical sound that is amplified in the power area by the transistors. In addition, the new voltage stabilisation works with a 12 AU7 valve and thereby provides a trouble-free 10W in Class A operation. The secret tip.
Description Designed with the true audiophile in mind, the MAP-800II has features and build quality typically found on much more expensive gear. An oversized toroidal transformer, balanced inputs, bi-wiring speaker terminals, bipolar output transistors and isolation spikes with protector pads, all wrapped in an ultra-rigid partitioned metal chassis with a thick solid metal faceplate. The result is an amplifier capable of driving even the most difficult loudspeakers, while reproducing all the subtle details and full dynamics of the music.
