Best Mid-Price Surround Sound System

Key features:
  • Optional gloss and leather finishes
  • 100mm front main drivers
  • 140W subwoofer
The oldest surround system in this round-up is proving hard to shift. Q Acoustics’s 3000 is one of just a few products we’ve given a perfect score to over the years, and with good reason.

For around £650 you get a full set of hifi-quality speakers that are extremely well-made, look good and sound fantastic. They’re crystal clear, and — for the price — the bookshelf-style units provide much greater dynamics than most. You don’t need a high-end receiver to get the most out of them either.

The Q Acoustics 3000’s subwoofer has a slim ‘upright’ design using a pair of mid-size drivers rather than a single huge one. Bass fanatics might prefer a more powerful unit, but our only real complaint is that at present the eye-catching black/white gloss finishes add £300 to the cost.

Our Score:

10
