Q ACOUSTICS RELEASES THE 'CONCEPT 40' ANOTHER ASTONISHING 'WORLD BEATING' LOUDSPEAKER

Q Acoustics is proud to add 'Concept 40', a new floorstanding 'flagship' model, to its acclaimed loudspeaker range. Alex Munro, Q Acoustics' Brand Director stated: "Make no mistake, the new Concept 40 is special. It delivers a sonic performance which until now, has only been enjoyed by those privileged enthusiasts who could afford wonderful, but very expensive, 'high end' loudspeakers."

"The introduction of the Concept 40 means music lovers can, for the first time, enjoy that true 'high end' experience, but at an affordable price."

Asked how Q Acoustics had achieved this leap forward in performance? Alex Munro replied: "Q Acoustics' philosophy is to lead, not follow, and innovation is the key to our success. So instead of following what other companies do, our design engineers decided to attack head on the big fundamental problem in speaker design, which is cabinet resonance."

"Cabinet resonance occurs at some level in all speakers and obliterates much of the low level (quiet) bits of information. These 'quiet bits' are part of every musical performance and go together to recreate a realistic soundstage and the 'being there' experience enjoyed by the owners of high end systems."

He continued: "Our Concept Series loudspeakers, incorporate state-of-the-art, ultra low resonance, 'GelcoreTM Construction' cabinets. These allow the loudspeaker's drive units to simply play the music, unconstrained by cabinet interference."

"The sonic result, for a loudspeaker at its price, is nothing short of sensational."
'Gelcore Construction'TM means the Concept 40 benefits from what can best be described as a 'cabinet within a cabinet', with a special resonance-cancelling compound adhering between the inner and outer shells. This cabinet is both rigid and exhibits extremely low resonance. The latter is achieved because the resonance-cancelling compound absorbs the kinetic energy (movement) generated within the inner cabinet by the drive units, and disperses this energy by converting it into heat.

When compared to a good conventional cabinet, radiated power (colouration) throughout the critical mid-band (voice frequencies) reduces by an average of more than -6dB. In the high and low frequencies the effect is even greater, with improvements in excess of -10dB.

Pricing and Finishes: The speaker comes in a choice of either Gloss White or Gloss Black, lacquered finishes and has a UK suggested retail price of £999.95 per pair.
Availability: The new Concept 40 floorstanding loudspeaker will be revealed to the public for the very first time at 'Sound & Vision' The Bristol Show (21st to 23rd February, 2014) and will be available to purchase from authorised Q Acoustics dealers from late February 2014.
