Full Description

3050 Floorstanding Speaker:

One of the best floor standing Speakers you can buy. Visually striking floor standing speakers in four beautiful finishes; including Lacquered Gloss Black and Lacquered Gloss White, the perfectly proportioned 3050 speaker is the flagship of the new 3000 Series speakers. Improved twin 165mm Aramid Fibre/Paper cone drivers deliver exceptional bass extension and midrange openness, whilst the new '2 in 1', Concentric Ring Dome tweeter adds astonishingly clear and smooth high frequencies. Performance is further enhanced, both sonically and aesthetically, by its integral steel 'outrigger' plinth with floor spikes.

The flagship 3050 Floorstanding speakers are the perfect loudspeaker for larger rooms. It boasts the ultra-low levels of distortion, typically found of speakers costing three or four times its price. Not surprisingly, as a result it delivers truly unrivalled sound quality and value.

Soulful pair of speakers that do pleaseReview by jrbrown
Transitioned from Wharfedale diamond 220s to the Q 3050. Very different sound signatures. Love my Warfies but these Q's add a dimension to the music, especially the vocals, that the Wharfies just did not have. The Q's seem brighter and are poppy. The vocal a bit more pronounced. The Wharfies are solid and delightful but when Friday night comes around and all 40 watts of my NAD are called upon, the Q's deliver the party and hence, justify the upgrade. The only downer is that they are big and rear ported so back walls are an issue. The bung (what a name) seems to effect the Qs by being less warm and expressive. The Wharfies can be placed against the wall all will thank you for it. (Posted on 2/17/2018)
Outstanding value!Review by Nigel
I purchased the Q Acoustics 3050. After careful set-up and hours of listening, I'm surprised anyone would give the 3050's less than five stars. Let's start with the bass and mid-bass: These speakers go low and are very defined. Bass is tight. I ran test tones and was getting good low end down to 35 hertz. Now for the mid-range: Very open and natural. Excellent imaging in regards to vocals coming from dead center. The high end: Extended and detailed. The real kicker is that these speakers don't lose their composure when played at high volumes. Highly recommended! (Posted on 1/30/2018)
Lively and cleanReview by Salter
I paired the 3050's with the SVS SB-2000 sub (crossed over at 50hz) and the sound this setup produces is simply "delicious". That said you should first try the 3050's on their own - they have plenty of bass. I only listen to music with this setup, and I'm very pleased with their ability to accurately render a variety of musical styles such as Indie, Rock, HipHop and classical. (Posted on 9/12/2017)
These are specialReview by Julian
I have had several different speakers over time, paradigm, klipsch heritage, polk, etc...

These are special, detailed and joyful, smooth as silk. I paired them with a sub crossed over at 60hz, just fabulous... (Posted on 7/31/2017)
Quite surprising!Review by WJZ
I had stopped critical listening to my music and sold my Stereophile class "A" rated components. Within a year I realized it was a mistake on my part and I needed to fill the void again. I just didn't have the $ anymore to get into class "A" again, so I started looking at modestly priced stereo components. Well, lo and behold, I auditioned these Q3050s and realize now you do not have to go broke to obtain superb sound. Sure, I've given up a bit when all is said and done, but these speakers give much back (and in the end, for the $, they're quite amazing). With the right ancillaries, I've wrung out so much goodness, it's a joy to spend hours listening critically again. These speakers are immensely capable and should satisfy all but the most jaded listeners! (Posted on 7/19/2017)
Great speakers. I am very picky about the quality (accuracy, clarity, presence.spacial dimensionality, etc.) of sound. These speakers checked all the "boxes"Review by carl m
Great speakers. Read the reviews from English sites, even before this company came to the US, and was really impressed. I was very happy when this company came to our side of the pond, and was one of the first to purchase a pair of these speakers. I listen mainly to DSD files. Amazing sound.

Be aware that they need a break-in period. In the beginning from one day to next I noticed a great difference in quality. Really palpable. The sound that was already great the day before, became to my amazement even great the next day.

Also, small changes in placement result in differences in sound. Play around with positioning and let them break in. You will be rewarded with sound that you will find amazing. Well, I do. (Posted on 7/5/2017)
They Gave Me the "Chills" Again!Review by Michael
First, I am very picky about the way music sounds to me, and these Q acoustics are unlike anything I have ever heard! They are rhythmic, clear, have a sense of excitement while being subtle. Hooked up to my Denon x3300w, I tried these speakers with all kinds of music from the Beatles, to Electronica and for each genre they did not disappoint.

The sound from the speakers was very pure, unadulterated, and crisp (also, no treble fatigue), and the bass was so smooth and almost had a groove type feel to it. I was even hearing new subtleties in songs I had heard hundreds of times before. And for the first time in a while, music sounded so good and it gave me "chills" something I haven't experienced with any other speaker. Do yourself a favor and buy these. Really though, just stop researching and purchase these..

To those who are on the fence, see below:

To those who are considering other speakers, here's a quick story. Unfortunately, I learned the hard way about buying speakers online until I finally found these beautiful gems of speakers. Before buying these I bought the a pair of Bic DV-64's (decent enough), then a pair of Fluance XL7F's (did not NOT like the sound at all, very muddy). Essentially, I now have 4 speakers I am now trying to get rid of... Don't make the same mistake I did, buy these and be happy! (Posted on 5/14/2017)
Just superb sounding speaker, believe meReview by Marius
I should say very short:
These speaker sound amazing. Especially is you look at their price.
i have purchased them a week ago and can't be happier. I have listened many speaker before buying and in this price category - these Q acoustics 3050 are one of the best if not the best.
The main thing that you will hear when you will try them -:
completely clear, without resonances, controlled sound (bottom, middle and highs) but at the same time it is full, detailed and musical. As someone wrote in the comments- with these speaker you can listen even not very good quality sources - these speakers are very forgiving. With some other speakers when the music source is not the best quality- you can hear all the shortages of the sound, but not with these. With q acoustics - the sound is still musical and very acceptable. What makes them very versatile with many music sources and music genres. Sound dispersion is also amazing. I will really recommend these 3050 to anyone who doesn't want to spend thousands, but still looking for really good sound. Q acoustics are brilliant new brand, what shows their growing popularity each year. Keep going this way!

Hidden GemReview by Matthew
For months leading up to my birthday, I knew that I wanted to replace my 10 year old entry-level Polk Monitor 30s with great mid-level floor-standers on my home theater setup.

I first started with the Polk RTi A5s. After auditioning them at the local Fry's Electronics, I was not as impressed as I thought I should have been. There just wasn't any energy and excitement to them.

Then I moved on to the Klipsch RP-260F. The clarity was certainly nice, but I found them lacking in warmth, one of the characteristics I do like about Polk speakers. In addition, after listening to them a while, I found them fatiguing.

Then, I got to listen to a pair of Wharfedale Diamond 230s that a friend-of-a-friend had. They were clearer than the Polk's and warmer than the Klipsh's. They sounded very nice. I was sold! Now I just had to wait until September to roll around so I had an excuse to drop some dough.

So, while I waited, I searched the internet for reviews. I came across a British site called What-Hifi? They definitely liked the Wharfedales, but they kept raving about Q Acoustics, specifically their 3050 floor-stander. So, I look and I look and I look. Not sold in the USA!? What terrible luck! Back to the Wharfedales.

Then, just as September approaches, I check What-Hifi? one last time and BAM!, an advertisement that Q Acoustics is now sold in the good ol' US of A. What amazing luck! I put them on order and they arrived in 3 days, even with free shipping. Good job guys. Packaging was excellent, the walnut vinyl veneer looks great, and installation is relatively painless, though they do have a little bit of heft to them.

It has been 7 months and I could not be happier with my choice. I am bi-amping them with a 7.2 channel Onkyo receiver and am using the supplied QED Performance XTC speaker cables for the high frequencies. The clarity meets or exceeds all previous speakers I had considered and they are able to produce a warm, rich sound that I could never get tired listening to. In addition, I regularly get very positive comments from women about how "not boxy" these speakers look, including from the only opinion who really matters, my wife.

Whether watching movies, playing the latest video games, or listening to Hi-Res music, these speakers sound amazing! In fact, I regularly visit friends and family members who have more expensive floor-standers from Klipsch, Definitive Tech, Polk, and Monitor Audio, and I can say, without a doubt, these have them beat.

I was right to trust the rave reviews of What-Hifi? (Posted on 4/18/2017)
Great Sounding Speakers!!!Review by Fred
Just got the 3050 in Graphite, love them so far. Easy to set up, and sound great out of the box. Happy camper so far!!! (Posted on 1/26/2017)
Excellent SpeakersReview by demjame
I took a chance on these based on the rave reviews from the U.K. I put these up against many more expensive speakers, like the KEF Q500, MA Bronze 5/ silver 6, and my old Klipsch floor standers. I tested all the speakers with my old Integra 5.2 receiver and a newer Denon s720w. I have to say I was blown away by their sound quality and value. I ultimately chose to keep the 3050's. They have an amazing soundstage and are warm and full, but still reproduce every detail beautifully. They never become taxing on the ears and are very forgiving if your source material isn't perfect. I also use them for Home Theater and they are excellent. There are not many times I feel compelled to write a review, but they deserve a listen if you are looking for what I consider the best all around speakers I auditioned regardless of price.
