This innovative brand has been a power player in affordable speakers for a decade now, but the 3050i is arguably Q Acoustics’ best value product today. More than just another floorstanding speaker, this two-way reflective design features new bespoke drive units, with careful decoupling of the tweeter via a rubber suspension system. The cabinet has been significantly reinforced to reduce resonances, and there is clever internal ducting to deliver a more linear bass. The result is a command sound with real scale and power, and it’s also delicate and detailed. With a range of four attractive modern finishes, this is by far the best floorstanding speaker at its price level.
