Q Acoustics Concept 500 Gloss Black Floorstanding Speakers (Pair). Best Product 2017 - 2018 - Floorstanding Speaker. Mainstream speaker makers often struggle when they move upmarket, but not Q Acoustics. The Concept 500 is an audacious new floorstander employing highly optimised drivers and cabinet.This svelte new loudspeaker comes in a choice of white or black gloss, with contrasting real wood veneers. The special tweeter blends seamlessly with twin mid/bass drivers, which are set into the heavily braced, multilayered gel-lined cabinet. This loudspeaker sounds refined way beyond its price, with a neutral yet musical performance.
Hi-Fi News - Outstanding Product. Beautifully finished and with a rich, yet tightly defined sound, they respond well to care with positioning and being driven by highly accomplished electronics.AV Forums - Reference Status. "It might be a whole new price point for them but Q Acoustics has built another speaker that is the new standard to beat - 10/10". Hi-Fi Choice - Editors Choice. This is an outstanding speaker that shows an all-round depth of talent that would be impressive even if the price were considerably higher.
Its ability to remain transparent so that you can simply get on with enjoying the music is something that Q Acoustics can be very proud of, as it redefines expectations at the price. Designed to appeal to discerning audiophiles, the Concept 500 is the culmination of Q Acoustics continual evolution and refinement resulting in what we believe is sonic perfection. It is a loudspeaker that is at once, stylish, contemporary, fine-sounding and astonishingly accurate. It couples low directivity with wide bandwidth, good sensitivity and sensible impedance.
This makes the new Concept 500 both room-friendly and an easy load to drive, allowing amplifiers to deliver their best performance. To create a stereo soundstage which gives as good an impression of width, depth and height as that found in a live performance requires high quality drive units, a well designed crossover and an accurately constructed cabinet. To achieve this, Q Acoustics formed a truly talented team with many years of experience in the design, engineering and manufacture of world-class loudspeakers.
A combination that resulted in a state-of-the-art loudspeaker worthy of any high-end system. Concept 500 is the embodiment of elegant design, compatible with a contemporary living space and not specific to any particular style of interior. The appearance has been pared-back to be as clean looking as possible, with rear-mounted mid / bass drivers keeping the baffle uncluttered and embedded magnets securing the grille so no fixings are visible.
Gloss black or gloss white finishes have each been combined with Italian real wood veneer, chosen for its consistency in colour and pattern. The veneer is used sparingly in a subtle strip to create a cabinet that is visually light and clean. The white gloss finish has been attractively paired with pale oak and the black gloss with deep rosewood. Multiple coats of lacquer have then been added to give a deep piano gloss finish. P2P (Point to Point) cabinet bracing.
Supports the parts of the cabinet that need to be stiffened to deal with low frequency panel vibrations. Tall loudspeakers tend to suffer from resonances caused by unwanted pressure gradients. HPE balance out these pressure irregularities.
Equipped for bi-wiring or bi-amping. With terminals which can accept bare wires, spades or 4mm banana plugs. Links are provided to adjust the high frequency + or - 0.5 dB, also port bungs to reduce low frequency output.Mechanically decoupled mounting which effectively isolates the HF driver and speaker cabinet from reciprocal vibrations. Constructed in three separate layers and filled under pressure with non-setting gel, this damps the cabinet walls and converts higher frequency vibrations into heat. The crossover and high grade components used introduce virtually zero noise distortion. Distortion (120 Hz 20 kHz). Size (W x H x D).
400 x 1150 x 350 mm. Links are provided to adjust the high frequency + or - 0.5 dB. The item "Q Acoustics Concept 500 Gloss Black Floorstanding Speakers" is in sale since Thursday, February 20, 2020. This item is in the category "Sound & Vision\Home Audio & HiFi Separates\Speakers & Subwoofers".
