Q Acoustics 2020
Great speakers that have been pushed out by newer, even better rivalsWrite your own review
- Big presentation
- great weight and dynamic fluidity
- smooth, detailed vocals
- Don’t quite match the best in class for punch
Although not particularly tall or wide, the Q Acoustics 2020s have deep cabinets.
That probably won’t make much difference if you’re putting them on stands, but if they’re bookshelf-bound, you’d better make sure they’ll fit first.
The good news is that there’s no right or wrong answer where positioning is concerned.
You get extra weight near a wall and extra speed when in space, but neither is bad, so you can pick what suits.
They’re neat, too, with bi-wirable speaker terminals sited underneath.
The 2020s major in scale and weight, which works wonderfully with the big sweeping soundtrack from Inception. They’ve a lovely, delicate way with vocals, too.
Play some full-on beat-based music from the likes of The XX, though, and the Qs come a touch unstuck, with that slightly rounded-off approach depriving you of a little of the intended impact.
Still, if that kind of thing’s not your bag you can buy the 2020s with confidence.
