The Q Acoustics Concept 20 are truly remarkable speakers from this award-winning manufacturer, that deliver a level of sonic performance previously unheard of at this price and previously only available to customers spending much more money.
This performance has been achieved by using new technology and carefully applying scientific methodology to overcome the traditional fundamental problems of loudspeaker design. As well as class-leading drive units and crossover, the beautifully lacquered Concept 20 cabinet utilises "Gelcore" construction specifically developed for acoustic enclosures.
In effect this is a ‘cabinet within a cabinet’, separated by a special, resonance-cancelling compound. This enables the drive units to simply reproduce music, unencumbered by cabinet induced colouration. The result is nothing short of sensational!
For the very best results the Concept 20 should be used on its unique dedicated speaker stand, which uses the same "Gelcore" construction technique (available separately).

'Such is their dynamic verve and clarity throughout the frequency range that we were repeatedly drawn into listening to complete albums rather than the more usual short sections of songs during testing...the Concept 20s sound all of a piece – seamless in fact – and have a consistency of character from the deepest bass upwards that’s rarely hear at this (indeed any) price.' (What Hi-Fi? Magazine)
'The presentation is articulate and subtle yet has the punch and attack to satisfy [..] there’s a measured hand when it comes to rhythms, but changes in pace and the underlying momentum of the music is easily heard.' (What Hi-Fi? Magazine)
'You find yourself immersed in the middle of a vast stereo soundstage.' (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine)
'The Concept 20s are immensely composed, even when pushed hard, and can fill most rooms with a scale and volume of sound that seems scarcely credible from such a small cabinet.' (What Hi-Fi? Magazine)
'Another benefit of that cabinet design is stereo imaging: these speakers are brilliantly precise, throwing out a huge soundstage populated by pleasingly focused instruments. With the cabinet not contributing a great deal to the sound, it’s hard to pinpoint the physical location of the speakers within the sound image.' (What Hi-Fi? Magazine)
