The Smartsound winner of the Best Shelf Speaker is the Q Acoustics Concept 20, is built around a technology called Gelcore. This incorporates a dual cabinet design - one inside the other and bound by a special adhesive that never quite sets.
Performance is further optimised with an optional floor stand also using the Gelcore technology that not only is resonance free, but also creates a visually striking home for the Q Acoustics Concept 20.
The result is a sound that audiophiles with the big bucks to spend previously only had access to, and has to be heard to be believed. The concept 20's can handle anything from Beethoven's Eroica Symphony Number 3 to Led Zeppelin's sky splitting guitar solos in The Song Remains The Same with equal aplomb.
A choice of two colours is available - white or black gloss - and the overall fit and finish of the Q Acoustics Concept 20 is exemplary.
