Q Acoustics 3020 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½
Out of the box sound quality is very good, playing Heavy Metal, Jazz, Soul, Pop etc., good balanced sound with surprisingly good Bass notes from such a small speakers.
Vocal performance was pretty impressive, sound is natural, spacious, lively yet not bright,clarity, transparency, naturality is quiet stunning in audio world for $250 price tag.
3020 may be small and budget friendly speakers but performance is on the big side, comparable to higher price competitions.
I would definitely recommend to a friend for musical enjoyment, sound quality, price wise ELAC UB5/6s are direct competition, it will come down to personal preference, of-course design and build quality of Q3020 is better.
Only one thing I did not like: Low level listening late at night playing smooth jazz is not so smooth due to disappearance of lower frequencies but highs are still detail and well pronounce. Some may say thin sounding, I’m just nitpicking here but it’s my duty to report what I hear truthfully.
If anyone looking for budget mini monitors should audition them, Q 3020s are one of my favorite budget speakers since Pioneer BS22s.
Definitely recommended to all music lovers.,
Pros: Price to Performance, Build Quality.
Cons: Thin Mid-Range.
I made this video for the people who can’t audition the speakers or the equipments.
Note: This video is posted straight out of the camera and recorder. No video or audio post processing other than adding titles.
This video/Audio will not sound 100% accurate as auditioning in the real world, however I would recommend using good monitor headphones and play in HD to get best sound quality for your reference. (My reference headphones are Sony MDR7506 & Audio-Technica ATH-M50)
