Q Acoustics flaggskepp av stativhögtalare gör ett banbrytande designspråk och har avancerade ljudinnovationer för att leverera en prestanda av högsta kvalitet än vad som förväntas av dess prispunkt.
"A pair of elegant loudspeakers with dedicated stands that sound rich, punchy and musical. Outstanding - amongst the best."Hi-Fi World, 5 Globes
"The Concept 300 is a great addition to the standmount market. Highly capable across the board, it’s clear a lot of thought has been put into the design. The result is a charming sound that puts the accent on civility and smoothness – but never at the expense of musical enjoyment – making it excellent value for money."Hi-Fi Choice, 5 Stars, Recommended Award
IntroductionSince its founding in 2006, Q Acoustics has built an unrivalled reputation for designing, engineering and manufacturing innovative, high-performance and class-leading loudspeakers at every price-point. This ongoing and concerted demonstration of excellence has all led to Concept 300.The brief for Concept 300 is simple, yet staggeringly ambitious. Build on the runaway success of the floorstanding Concept 500 and deliver a standmounting alternative that’s at once more affordable, of utterly uncompromised performance and of stylish, understated elegance.There follows a brief explanation of just how Q Acoustics has made this happen and, by extension, why Concept 300 represents the state of the loudspeaker art in the 21st century.While so many of our Elite Dealer showrooms are closed we are offering Concept 300 for sale on this website and we are making the Concept 300 speakers available without stands, too.Concept 300 redefines the relationship between speaker and stand by using a completely new Tensegrity stand designThe Tensegrity stands comprise a structure of load bearing solid stainless steel bars to forming an inherently stable tripodAn Isolation Base Suspension System prevents vibrations moving in either direction through the bottom of the speakerPoint 2 Point™ cabinet bracing damps the speaker cabinet walls eliminating unwanted energy and reducing distortionDual Gelcore™layered cabinet converts higher-frequency vibrations into heat for ultra-quiet cabinet constructionHigh quality drivers, also de-coupled from the cabinet, combine with the crossover to give superior wide dispersion
Cabinet and StandIdeally, the only vibrations a loudspeaker produces are the ones required to generate its sound. Of course, it’s not possible to entirely rid a loudspeaker cabinet of unwanted vibrations that can interfere with its performance - but, as Q Acoustics has demonstrated with Concept 300, it is possible to keep cabinet vibrations to an absolute minimum in order to deliver entirely uncorrupted sound.Q Acoustics uses MDF rather than one of the more glamorous and/or expensive alternatives to construct the Concept 300 cabinet. There are a couple of reasons for this: a) alternative materials offer no benefits in terms of damping, or even ease and simplicity of construction, over the very high performance MDF delivers, and b) more expensive materials simply drive up the eventual price of the speaker for no audio gain whatsoever.
Dual Gelcore™Having dealt with lower-frequency vibrations using P2P bracing, Q Acoustics then negates higher-frequency cabinet vibrations using its bespoke Dual Gelcore technology.The Concept 300 cabinet is comprised of three individual layers, each separated by a non-setting gel - the gel acts rather like a high-tech and extremely effective gasket. Any stray high-frequency vibrations are converted into heat which dissipates within the gel.
Driver Units and CrossoverQ Acoustics has taken its proven (and acclaimed) driver technology from the Concept 500 floorstanding speaker and enhanced its performance to perfectly match the requirements of the Concept 300’s smaller cabinet.The mid/bass driver is a 165mm impregnated/coated paper cone with very low resonance thanks to its high-performance rubber surround. It sits in front of a large (35mm) glass fibre voice coil and equally substantial ferrite magnet. The result is midrange and bass response that’s as punchy and dynamic as it is poised and eloquent.Above it, the 28mm high-frequency driver, made of super-fine strands of coated microfibre, is decoupled from the speaker cabinet using a rubber gasket. This protects the tweeter from sending or receiving unwanted vibrations and allows it to be mounted close to the mid-bass driver. This improves integration with the larger driver - and the very subtle horn-shaped profile to the tweeter’s front plate allows perfect impedance-matching with its environment without colouring performance.
ResultsA combination of rigorous engineering, uncompromised industrial design and aspirational aesthetics makes Concept 300 the most fully realised loudspeaker Q Acoustics has yet delivered. In combination with the equally meticulous Tensegrity stand, Concept 300 represents a step-change in loudspeaker design and a redefinition of what is possible at its price.
