Q Acoustics Concept 40 stereo loudspeakers REVIEW


These speakers look so good they wouldn’t be out of place in a museum of modern art. The even better news? They sound every bit as good as they look.

POSTCRIPT: If you intend to use a subwoofer in conjunction with Q Acoustics' Concept 40 floorstanders, you will need to ensure correct integration of the subwoofer's output with that of the Concept 40s by setting the subwoofer's volume, phase and...

Good value


Bought these speakers as ex-demo and as such they represented excellent value. Impressive and attractive, you cannot fault their performance, clear with a solid bass. They even impressed my wife who normally wants nothing to do with Hi-Fi.

Q Acoustics Concept 40 Floorstanding Speakers (Pair)


Competitive price, good communication (mail), speakers were well packed (shipping to The Netherlands). Missing foam bungs (not their fault, speakers are brand new in unopened box) were send later to me.

Info about nominal impedance is a little bit confusing. Depening the source (manual, website of text at back of the speakers) it varies from 6 to 8 Ohms. That's why i give "ease of use" a 6. I did ask the Shop (8 Ohm) and Q Acoustic (4 Ohm)itself for...

Q Acoustic Concept 40's


For the sake of being redundant as I agree with many other owners of these fine speakers, transparency, detailed, tight and punchy sound. And at times just a little too polite but that does work well with amps that are too forward sounding. Definitely...

great value steady sure footed sound. ; amazing with jazz classical and acoustic music. ; at times can compete with pmc and proac models.

can be too soft sounding at times.

Excellent speakers for the price - dependant on what you like.


Good quality speakers but must be paired carefully with a not too bright amplifier. Sound is very "forward" which is what I personally prefer - others may not, singers sound as if they are actually in the room and not in the wall! May suit a valve amp...

forward sound
