Q Acoustics has landed.
Posted on March 25th, 2021
Q Acoustics is not like other loudspeaker companies.
Q Acoustics is a young brand.
Born in 2006, with a decade of awards, constant innovation to deliver real audio; no effects is what fuels us. There is no secret to our success.
“Some of the most forward-thinking products in existence.” What HI-FI? Sound & Vision (November 2009)
Q Acoustics was established in the UK 2006; not by a wealthy ‘music lover’ or retired ‘rock musician’. No, Q Acoustics was founded by professional businessmen, experts in the audio industry; with the sole aim of developing a highly successful loudspeaker brand. It’s that simple. A completely focussed, professional understanding of business has driven our remarkable success. Because we recognised, long before anybody even dreamed of designing our first products; that the only way Q Acoustics could possibly enjoy commercial success was to design and produce loudspeakers that were, without question, demonstrably superior to their similarly priced competitors. In other words, we had to make the best affordable loudspeakers in the world.
So that’s what we did.
Please do not misunderstand us. Although we have little history or tradition, we do have vast expertise. To produce the world’s best loudspeakers, we obviously had to engage the world’s best loudspeaker designers and provide unlimited access to the most advanced design and engineering facilities. So that’s what we did.
It’s amazing what Q Acoustics has accomplished in eight years.” What HI-Fi? Sound & Vision (May 2014)

New Audioquest speaker cables on demonstration.
Posted on March 24th, 2021
We are pleased to announce the arrival of the Audioquest William Tell ZERO and Thunderbird ZERO speaker cables.
“Building on a solid base of tried and true AudioQuest technologies, the design team of Garth Powell and Bill Low specifically focused on addressing one of the most vexing issues plaguing speaker cable design: the mismatch between the amplifier’s source impedance and the speaker’s load impedance. By eliminating the speaker cable’s characteristic impedance (ZERO Technology), current compression and distortion of the signal/current transient are significantly reduced. The result is dynamic contrast, transient response, and bass slam that are rendered seemingly without effort, because the cable is not electrically impeding the music.”
William Tell ZERO from $3800.00 8′ pair MSRP
Thunderbird ZERO from $6500.00 8′ pair MSRP
