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.
2020i Bookshelf / Wallmount Speaker What Hi-Fi? award winner; the medium sized 2020i bookshelf design exudes quality. The beautifully finished, low resonance cabinet encapsulates the new 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 2020i to be stand or wall mounted.
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 NEW CONCEPT 40 LOUDSPEAKER
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.
This ‘Five Star’ ultra compact bookshelf speaker sets new standards for sonic performance in its class. Boasting class leading distortion levels, it is suitable for both hi-fi music and home cinema use and is an ideal match for the 2000Ci centre speaker and 2070Si subwoofer. The 2010i can also be stand or wall mounted, using the dedicated 2000ST stand or 2000WB wall bracket.
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 amplifier MAP102 represents a true technological achievement.
It meets the classical functions and technological requirements of an audiophile amplifier, and also has new functions such as PC input, i-Pod input, and a MP3 input by USB key. With the MAP102, nothing was left to chance. All the componenets are sound-friendly and its large toroidal transformer guarantees a high reserve of power, as well as a delicate and subtle rendering of your favorite music.
Besides,award winning design in its category, the MAP102 has a "HIGH BIAS3 switch on the rear panel of the device. This enables it to commute the amplifier in class A* up to 16 Watts. Beyond this limit, the amplifier commutes automatically in class AB** to reach an output of 80 Watts per channel. A tone control Bass/Medium/Treble ( can be disconnected) permits one to adjust the different frequencies for those who want.4 equalization curves for i-Pod and USB inputs, as a manual High Level function to optimize the i-Pod level. The number of plugs enable numerous connections to different sources, such as a phono input for a turntable equipped with a magnet moving coil as well as a plug for a headset. It is also possible to disconnect the pre amplifier section, from the amplifier section, to use a subwoofer.
