Q Acoustics Concept 500 are flagship floorstanding speakers filled with gel to combat vibrations.
British audio brand Q Acoustics want to bring the sound of landmark live performances into the home and have tasked their exquisite new Concept 500 speakers with providing the necessary sonic stage.
Central to their performance is a number of patented audio innovations, including Unique Dual Gelcore™ where the inner cabinet walls have been bound together with a non-setting gel.
The bespoke adhesive dissipates high-frequency vibrations, generated by the moving drivers, into heat to maintain a focused audio performance free of any resonance.
Driver technology itself has been been tweaked to deliver the special live sound, with the higher frequency driver kept isolated from the cabinet to further eliminate vibrations, and an oversize mid/bass coil added to handle an increased musical payload.
Designed to match most hi-fi systems and one box solutions, such as the outstanding Uniti range from fellow Brits Naim, the Concept 500 comes in a two-tone white or black deep piano gloss finish paired with Italian pale oak or rosewood.
In keeping with the refined design is a cast aluminium plinth base integrated into the cabinet with engineered feet for a secure coupling to any surface.
Hearing is believing and the gorgeous Concept 500’s can be found at a retailer demo room near you by visiting the Q Acoustics website before they go on sale in the autumn. That gives us just enough time to find a Kensington townhouse to put them in.
