“these speakers knock any similarly priced soundbar’s into a cocked hat”
Home Cinema Choice December 2013
"The Q-BT3 does what its makers intend, being both a neat sonic upgrade for a TV and doubling up brilliantly for stereo music"
“Dialogue ... is so much clearer. Muttered dialogue... benefits hugely from the extra clarity” “Bluray and DVD is punchy and dynamic. The bass...with authority and assurance”
“Traditional hi-fi qualities in the most versatile Bluetooth speakers around”
What makes the BT3 speakers so special?
Hidden within the Q-BT3 speakers is a high quality, 2 x 50 Watts per channel amplifier, a Bluetooth V4.0 wireless receiver (with advanced ‘aptX’ capability for improved sound quality), and a low distortion Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC), accessed via an optical input.
For movie lovers wishing to hear ultra-low frequency effects, there’s a separate subwoofer output to connect your subwoofer of choice. A second line level input allows you to connect a CD, DVD, Blu-ray player or any other ‘line level’ source.
"A brilliant audio solution for nearly every requirement"
Where can I put my speakers?
Can I use my iPhone or other Smartphone to connect wirelessly to my Q-BT3 speakers?
For ultimate flexibility and convenience, we’ve incorporated state of the art V4.0 Bluetooth technology (with aptX for near CD quality sound) into the Q-BT3, which allows you to listen to music from any Bluetooth enabled Smartphone, Tablet or laptop. Then simply enjoy your music with the freedom and convenience that only a wireless connection can bring. This innovative product can be enjoyed in many different ways, from many different devices.
We’re completely confident the Q Acoustic Q-BT3 Bluetooth speakers set the standard at their price. The new Q-BT3 isn’t a jazzed up iPod dock or modified table radios in disguise. As stated above, the Q-BT3 looks and sounds like a pair of genuine, superior quality hi-fi loudspeakers, for the very obvious and simple reason; that’s precisely what they are.
Never miss what is going on
The amazing thing about these is that you will never miss an important phone call or message again. You can listen to your music, however when your phone or device goes off, it dims the sound and alerts you. Therefore you can always stay connected, whether it is a message from your friends or an important business phone call, you can be alerted.
Are these the best TV speakers around?
Well, we’re too modest to say, but they’re certainly great value and will deliver an audio performance that comfortably outperforms typical soundbars and other dedicated TV speakers. Appearance wise Q-BT3 looks just like a pair of small, neat and stylish real hi-fi loudspeakers – because, under the skin, that’s just what they are (and a lot more!) Placed either side of your TV, the BT3 speakers can connect to your television or set-top box for you to experience fabulous TV sound quality. Q Acoustics BT3 is ideal for television and movie lovers alike and for those who want to ‘feel the earth move’, there’s a separate subwoofer output to connect your subwoofer of choice.
Less clutter, more sound
The Q Media BT3 has been specially designed to dramatically improve the sound from your TV. Volume levels can also be controlled via the remotes from many satellite and cable TV boxes, (including 'Sky' and 'Virgin' models). Therefore you can experience movies, music and sport like never before without searching for that ‘other remote’. In addition the BT3 has a built- in amplifier, therefore there is no need for a separate amp. This all adds up to less clutter in your lounge.
Can they be used with my laptop or computer?
Quite simply, yes! The BT3s make for great desktop speakers. They are small enough so that they will not clutter up your desk, and will deliver a performance that will ‘wow’ you. The BT3s take your listening experience to the next level. No longer will you have to complain about the poor sound quality, whether you are Skyping a friend, downloading music or watching something online.
Why should I use these speakers for my laptop or computer?
The BT3s deliver a sound far beyond that you get out of your laptop or computer. With the built in amplifiers the BT3s work particularly well for musicians that enjoy recording their own music as it is like bringing the recording studio to your very own home. They are also great for gaming, helping you get more involved in the experience, almost like you’re actually in the game itself.
