Q Acoustics is not like most other loudspeaker companies.
Q Acoustics is a young brand. No heritage. No tradition. No old black and white photographs. We believe that to be the secret of our success.
Q Acoustics was established in 2006; but not by a wealthy music lover, hobbyist designer or retired rock musician.
No. Q Acoustics was founded by professional engineers and businessmen whose sole aim was to develop a highly successful best in class loudspeaker brand based on outstanding audio performance. It’s that simple, a completely focussed understanding of acoustic engineering and inspirational design has driven our remarkable success. We recognised that the only way Q Acoustics could possibly enjoy commercial success was to design and produce loudspeaker products that were, without question, superior to their similarly priced competitors. So, with that aim in mind, for the last ten years with have enabled audiophiles around the world to enjoy Q Acoustics for its innovative and high performance loudspeakers.
The First 10 Years
2006 – The first product to be launched was the 1000 series, a competitively priced range of Hi-fi and Home Cinema cabinet loudspeakers, which soon became best sellers.
2009 – The 2000 series refined the technologies present in its award-winning 1000 series predecessor, to set a new standard for our celebrated loudspeaker line.
Next came QTV 2. Speakers that were specifically designed to improve the audio performance of flat panel TV’s; a FIRST for the industry utilising BMR, a wide dispersion driver technology perfectly suited to AV products, ensuring the entire room was filled with TV sound.
“Some of the most forward-thinking products in existence.”

2011 – Q Acoustics launched the 7000 series; a 5.1 style speaker system, a triumph of form and function, containing the latest technological acoustic breakthroughs from the Q Acoustics engineering team. It was promptly awarded the What Hi-Fi ultimate accolade as “Product of the Year”. The 2000 series became the 2000i series as we completed an exhaustive overhaul to all audio-sensitive elements. The Q Acoustics team continued to innovate and create loudspeakers with superior acoustic quality, reproducing recordings as naturally as the original performance.
2012 – The Q Acoustics team announced a pioneering range of Install speakers providing pristine, audiophile sound from speakers that fitted seamlessly into a home environment.
2013 – The Concept Series was born, beginning with Concept 20 and showcasing ground-breaking cabinet making skills and introducing another industry first with GelcoreTM technology, which massively reduced cabinet distortion for the purest sound. Recognised by What Hi-Fi with the ultimate accolade as “ Product of the Year” the following year.
This year also saw the launch of the Q Acoustics team’s first Bluetooth enabled active hi-fi speakers with the QBT3.
2014 – The team expanded the Concept series with the Concept 40 floorstanding speaker, one of the most remarkable Q Acoustics loudspeakers to date. To provide the ultimate Home Cinema experience the Concept Centre was added to the growing range.
2014 – also saw the launch of our very first ‘one-piece’ in the shape of the M4 soundbar incorporating BMR driver technology, with that superior room-filling quality. The critically acclaimed M4 soundbar quickly progressed to win What Hi-Fi ‘Product of the Year’ twice!
“It’s amazing what Q Acoustics has accomplished in eight years.”

2015 – The 3000 HiFi and Home Cinema series was launched, once again building on the class-leading innovation and craftsmanship of its predecessors to create a new range of world-class loudspeakers.
Though our history and tradition has been built during just a single decade our success is not simply a matter of excellent sound quality. In the Q Acoustics Design Team we have assembled what we believe to be the world’s best group of loudspeaker engineers, who have access to the most advanced technical facilities.
So here we are, ten years old with world-renowned audiophile speakers for HiFi and Home Cinema, Media speakers for screen sound enhancement and Install speakers, all built around the Q Acoustics commitment to the best quality audio, no matter what the format.
As we approach our teenage years, Q Acoustics is still developing world-class products and we believe that we are just reaching our prime.
