I myself have heard them and was amazed with the massive, detailed sound of these diminutive speakers. The Build Quality is also awesome, featuring solid premium finish cabinets and magnetic grilles for a clean look.

Bigger. Better. Optimal Performance.
The Q Acoustics 3020 is an bookshelf speaker specially designed for small to medium sized rooms looking for detailed and precise sound. The 3020s use a revolutionary 2-in-1 ring/dome tweeter and a very clever bass driver, made from a mix of paper and aramid fibres, very similar to the likes of Kevlar and Teflon. The use of this material ensures the sound delivered from the speakers, is wonderfully open and realistic, delivering an extraordinary being there three-dimensional soundstage. What more could you want from a pair of bookshelf speakers?
Deep & Powerful Bass
To experience ultimate depth from your music, Q Acoustics have included a bass cone with a larger diameter, extending big bass response with fast dynamics to offer a noticeably more powerful sound than its little brother, the 3010s. Ideal for larger rooms and/or lovers of dance, rock and full orchestral music, the 3020s bring greater dynamic realism. These speakers are easy to drive, making them ideal for less powerful amplifiers.
Beautiful Sound; Premium Finish
The 3020s can be stand mounted and are available in a range of beautiful finishes to complement your listening environment. Matte Graphite and American Walnut finishes are staples for the 3000 Series, which also look stunning in Gloss Black, and Gloss White. Magnetic grilles provide a clean look to the baffle when used with the grilles off.
