Q Acoustics 3030i Standmount Loudspeakers Now Available

Q Acoustics has added a new model to its award-winning 3000i loudspeaker range: the 3030i standmount speaker.

Slipping neatly between the 3020i bookshelf speaker and 3050i floorstander, the 3030i has been engineered to provide more powerful bass performance while remaining conveniently compact.

We're told that even though it retains the size and appearance of a standmount speaker (200 x 325 x 329 mm (WxHxD)), it derives its woofer design from the much larger and more powerful 3050i floor-stander.

The 65mm (6.5-inch) woofer has been optimised for use in a smaller standmount-style cabinet and is armed with a new motor with copper-clad aluminium windings. The result of that and sporting twice the internal volume of the 3020i, the 3030i can go right down to an impressive 46Hz and up to 30 kHz.

Also borrowed from the 3050i is the newcomer's tweeter and mounting arrangement adding to the 3030i's class-leading high-frequency performance, according to the company.

High cabinet rigidity and low distortion are accomplished by using Point to Point P2P bracing tech, first introduced in the flagship Concept 500 speaker. Additionally, the bespoke floor stand provides excellent stability while positioning the tweeter at the optimal listening height. 

Price and availability

The Q Acoustics 3030i is available now and sells in Australia for $899 RRP in Arctic White, Carbon Black, Graphite Grey and English Walnut.

    applause awards

    Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
