Q Acoustics has revealed details of its new 3000 speaker range, which will be officially unveiled at the Bristol Sound and Vision Show this weekend.

We've had a sneak preview of the new models, which will sit alongside the current 2000 Series which continues in production throughout 2015.

In typically ebullient style, Q Acoustics' PR Manager Steve Reichert says of the new 3000 range: "Our aim was to make the best loudspeakers on the planet - for the money. We are moving the goalposts again. There is no area of the 3020's performance that has not been improved over the 2020i."

The same team that created the successful Q Acoustics 1000, 2000 and Concept 20 Series has been involved in the development of the new 3000 models. "We have learnt a lot from the Concept 20 Series," says Reichert.

"There's a much thicker baffle on the 3020 (24mm) and we have used an improved paper/Aramid fibre for the cone material, as well as upgrading the components on the crossover."

Interestingly, the 3010 and 3020 models lose the biwire speaker terminals seen on the 2000 Series. "Very few people biwire their speakers at this price level and biwire terminals create a bigger hole in the cabinet, which causes sound problems and reduces the cabinet volume," explains Reichert. Only the 3050 floorstanding speakers get biwire terminals.

A 21mm dome and ring tweeter gives "better dispersion and lower distortion".

I guess the spec is on the website. The 2000i Series has great reviews but maybe Utomo doesn't agree?

This new series looks great

They look better than most speakers in this pricerange, maybe the most beautiful speakers you can get. Hopefully they will sound good as well.
