What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Q Acoustics 3020i Bookshelf Speakers (Pair) (Graphite Grey)
  • I was looking for modest size speakers with good sound. They are placed on the floor without stands.
  • Really pleased with the sound from these little speakers (ran from Naim amps with qed silver leads) making no exception for their size or price.
  • I’ve had Dynaudio and PMC’s in a stereo setup and Bose with surround sound, but there little gems are brilliant and take a bit of the best from all the previously mentioned, well worth the money.
  • Big clear sounds from these gorgeous little boxes.
  • Nothing has come close to these two little speakers to complete my tv system.

What customers say about "Audio"
Q Acoustics 3020i Bookshelf Speakers (Pair) (Graphite Grey)
  • Very neutral tone, base is present but not excessive, I feel these truly reflect the music being fed into them.
  • They sound as good as speakers costing hundreds of pounds more. And the build quality is equally good.
  • The sound is crisp, once the speakers were 'run in' and the bass not too strong to overpower the mids.
  • Those speakers are incredible. Honestly never heard music so alive in my life.
  • They sound beautiful with my classic Quad pre and power amplifier and a yamaha cdn301.

What customers say about "Features"
Q Acoustics 3020i Bookshelf Speakers (Pair) (Graphite Grey)
  • The increase in cabinet volume has made a huge difference compared to the original 3020's and these are now real room fillers, even from my desk.
  • These are awesome bookshelf speakers for its price (I got them on sale too from local store, I am from Australia). The quality of finish for the speaker cabinet is top notch.
  • I'm not a big expert on sound but I know what I like. That's a nice solid bass that doesn't drown out the trebles. Good clarity, low resonance.
  • At first I was disappointed. For a small speaker I was put off by the depth of the cabinet, and then the generally over blown bass.
  • The cabinet is longer (deeper) than I expected -- but that is a minimal point.
