Q Acoustics Q7000i Speaker Package (2.1)
"If you have £900 to spend on a small style-speaker package, spend it here"
What Hi-Fi, November 2013
So what's special about the new speakers? The big difference is sound quality. They are a substantial leap forward, even when compared with their multi-award winning predecessor. Indeed, they are so good that, unlike their style competitors, they reproduce music just as well as they convey home cinema soundtracks. Why is this significant for a home cinema package? The answer is because it proves the overall quality of the design. Every good loudspeaker will accurately reproduce whatever sound is played through it. If a style speaker is incapable of accurately reproducing high quality music, then its design is fundamentally flawed. Over time those flaws, although initially less obvious, will become clearly audible to listeners trying to enjoy and 'experience' movie soundtracks.
At first sight the new 7000i package appears to be an elegant 'Subwoofer and 5 x Satellites' combination, but this is misleading because the 7000i's three front and two rear speakers are in fact high power, full range models; albeit with the limited bass extension you would expect to find with any small bookshelf design.
To achieve their elegant appearance, the infinite baffle enclosures are cast in aluminium and damping materials are applied internally to eliminate any cabinet resonances. Each speaker boasts twin, custom designed, 75mm, ultra long throw bass/mid range drivers. State-of-the-art light weight coated paper was selected for the cone material because, combined with a rubber surround, it enables the speaker to deliver a wide dynamic range, very low distortion and ultra fast transients. The tweeter, also bespoke, is a 25mm, Neodymium magnet, 'Ring Radiator' model. The outstanding dispersion characteristic of this advanced design creates a wonderfully three dimensional sound stage for both music and home cinema, as well as delivering very smooth and detailed high frequencies.
Each speaker also benefits from an adjustable, integral stand in the same finish. This can be configured to become either a wall or ceiling bracket and includes a clever cable management system to hide the speaker cable.
Naturally, a beautifully styled and finished matching floor stand, complete with cable management, is also available.
The small, slim and attractive 7070Si subwoofer is revolutionary. Q Acoustics' engineers have developed a new variation to the traditional 'infinite baffle' design solution. It delivers an outstandingly controlled, detailed and dynamic bass sound and also enables ease of placement within the listening room. The subwoofer's 8 inch (200mm), High Excursion bass driver fires internally against a heavy, rigid 'sounding board'. This surface deflects the bass notes evenly into the room through slim subwoofer grilles located on the top and both sides of the gloss finished unit. The new subwoofer is floor or wall mountable and also deceptively powerful, boasting an in-built 150 watt Class-D power amplifier.
