"These floorstanders have quality from their deep-gloss finish to the elegantly machined aluminium faceplate. The Concept 40s aren’t fussy about partnering equipment, detail is good and there’s consistency to the way these speakers deliver all parts of the frequency spectrum. With better refinement, a smoother delivery and easy-going balance, they deserve serious consideration."



"Building on the success of the concept 20s, the floor-standing 40s use the same Gelcore construction to deliver a wonderfully transparent and enjoyable sound that is better than speakers costing considerably more"

Q Acoustics have achieved a level of performance that would normally be out of many Hi-Fi fans' reach with the Concept 40 floorstanding loudspeakers. Their innovative Gelcore™ construction method has been the driving force behind the Concept's remarkably impressive detail which will leave you both smitten with the sound and pleasantly astonished at how much they cost.

Two powerful magnets in each speaker behind the bass woofers offer a wide dynamic range with lush soundtracks sounding even bigger through the Concept 40's. Constructed to suit a more spacious listening environment, the Gelcore™ 'sandwich' technology - a pair of MDF sheets bound together by the acoustic enhancing Gelcore™ material - perform a brilliant job of keeping vibrations under firm control. It's this type of thought process and low-cost way of tackling the resonance problem which keep the Concept 40 speakers a sensible price point with a musicality that's normally reserved for speakers two and three times their price setting a new standard in audio achievement.

The Concept 40's also come with an improved soft dome tweeter design by being decoupled from the aluminium front panel to prevent vibrations tarring those sweet high-end frequencies. An improved cross brace structure and an elegant tripod base platform also contribute to keeping these refined speakers perfectly rigid. Even the plush looking cable terminal posts have an effervescent quality about them which any audiophile would appreciate.

  • Tick Cabinet uses Gelcore construction to reduce cabinet resonance
  • Tick Aluminium facia plate with 'butyl clamp' further reduces cabinet resonance
  • Tick Perfect rigidity from tripod stand enhances performance
  • Tick 2 x 125mm bass/mid drivers, with powerful oversized magnets
  • Tick 1 x 25mm dome tweeter, with high frequency de-coupler
  • Tick Butyl rubber sheeting for the front panel to further filter out resonance

They are very musical, they have (settled in) improved with use over the last week. The cabinets are solid (heavy) and very well built, tapping them they feel more like stone than mdf. Whilst not quite up to the extraordinary piano finish on my Quads in my main system they do sound almost as good and another week or so of running them in may bring them even closer. I was a bit nervous having only used Quad Speakers for the last 30 years but I am delighted with my choice.
