Q Acoustics, the British loudspeaker company, has announced that it has reduced the price of ‘Q-BT3’, its ‘Bluetooth(TM)’ wireless loudspeakers.

With immediate effect, the recommended retail price of the BT3 is reduced from £349.95 to £279.95 inc VAT.BT3_gloss_red

Why? Brand Director Alex Munro explained:

“This is very much a commercial decision, based upon our positive experience with ‘economies of scale’. Last year, sales of our award-winning M4 soundbar exceeded expectations, which resulted in cost benefits due to economies of scale. We reduced the price and sales more than doubled.”

“We’re excited to replicate this success with the highly acclaimed BT3 – the brilliant audio solution for nearly every requirement.”

He continued: “Appearance wise the BT3 looks like a very neat, stylish pair of small hi-fi loudspeakers; available in three fashionable gloss colours. Bring your smartphone into the mix and wirelessly stream Bluetooth signals to the BT3 and it’s transformed into the equivalent of a super quality modern mini-system”

Alex Munro went on to say:

“Let me be absolutely clear; the BT3 isn’t a jazzed up iPod dock or modified table radio in disguise. They look and sound like a pair of genuine, superior quality hi-fi loudspeakers, for the very obvious and simple reason; that’s precisely what they are!”

Technical Specifications:

Within the BT3 speakers is a 2 x 50 Watts per channel power amplifier, a Bluetooth V4.0 wireless receiver, with advanced ‘aptX’ capability and a Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC), accessed via an optical input.

BT3 boasts two analogue stereo line level inputs (1 x 3.5mm mini jack, 1 x pair phono sockets), and a toslink optical digital input. There’s also a separate subwoofer output provided.

Each BT3 speaker utilises a 25mm silk dome tweeter and 100mm coated paper cone midrange/bass unit. As in all Q Acoustics hifi loudspeakers the crossover is a fourth order ‘Linkwitz-Riley’ configuration; in this instance, with the advantage of fine tuning of its frequency response curve, achieved by using digital filters in a DSP (Digital Signal Processor).

In addition to the small infrared remote control included with the BT3, it can also be operated by the remote controls which come with many satellite and cable TV boxes, (including UK ‘Sky’ and ‘Virgin’ models). The unit will also ‘auto switch’ between inputs when it detects a new signal. For example, if you are enjoying TV sound, but then decide to start streaming music from your smartphone or tablet, the BT3 will detect this new signal and switch to its Bluetooth input.

Available in three gloss finishes: Red, White and Black, the BT3 is available now.

Dimensions: (H x W x D) each speaker is 240mm x 148mm x 226mm.

In the UK, the suggested retail price is now £279.95 per pair, and everything required is included in the carton:

1 x Active (right) speaker 1 x Passive (left) speaker
1 x remote control 1 x 3.5mm jack lead (2 metre)
1 x RCA phono lead (2 metre) 1 x Speaker cable (4 metre)
1 x UK power cable 1 x EU power cable
