Based on the award winning 2020 speakers, the Q-Acoustics 2020is (the i stands for improved) are medium sized bookshelf/standmount speakers which deliver a full bass and clean top end making them a very attractive choice. The flexible 2020is are comfortable with any music genre and suitable for use with most amplifiers, in both hifi and home cinema set-ups.

Happily for me I found what HiFi gave them 5 stars and an award etc etc... Even better I found the praise well deserved.
I cabled them with QED Anniversary XT cable and put them on stands. After a running in time if about 10 hours (whose counting) I find my self hearing things I've never heard before and thoroughly enjoying all the music in my collection like never before.
Only trouble is they've rekindled my interest in HiFi and that does not bode well for my wallet.....
These are very good speakers, no doubt. They are crystal clear and I have not heard them distort yet. They do well with all music types from Paganini to ZZ Top. Instrumental music is detailed and accurate and very acoustic. High fidelity is for once an accurate label.
The case is a thing of beauty, solid, shiny and rounded corners. I wonder if the cover should be white to match the case although I could imagine that becoming grubby in time. The speakers can be bi wired (most experts say don't bother) however they are connected via a recess in the bottom rather than at the back. This is a debateable feature as if you want to wall mount them then first you need to buy the manufacturers brackets or maybe use a standard bracket and screw into them; which would be a bit of a crime. Some 'clamp type' brackets would struggle because of the round edges. The other downside with the connections being in the base is you can see them when wall mounted if you look up. The back is plain white though and this could be an advantage depending on your intended positioning. You can use either banana plugs or wire to connect them as you wish.
I have also purchased some Dali Zensor 1 speakers in black. In my opinion the Q Acoustics have a better finish but I think the Dali's have the edge on sonic performance. More dynamic contrast, is how I would describe the difference but both are very good speakers. The Q Acoustics were for my kitchen and given their good looks I would not go back and buy white Dali's even though I marginally prefer their sound.
The Q Acoustics can handle bass and I think for most average people who like to crank it up a little, but not deafen themselves, these are probably bassy and loud enough, quite punchy.
If you want to have proper bass which causes your ears to bleed, your organs to vibrate and the neighbours to complain then these small units simply cannot move the same air as larger more powerful speakers. However if you want excellent high fidelity and are happy with medium volumes and enough tight punchy base to get the idea then I do not think anyone could be disappointed. For their size though they are very surprisingly powerful.
The covers are easily removable but so light and filmy I doubt you can tell the difference off or on.
At the price these are some of the best speakers on the market. Most reviews I have seen tend to place the Q Acoustic's ahead of the Dali's but certainly if you want small, affordable quality, both are a great choice.
I'm astounded as how good these sound. I didn't think my last speakers sounded that bad, but there was so much detail missing. I'm listening to music with new ears now - songs I've known for years make me stop what I'm doing and say "I'd never noticed that before"
I'm now stuck wondering round the house with a permanently quizzical expression going "wow", and I'm not getting anything else done as I just want to listen to more and more and more music!!
I can't believe the difference these have made. If you're even considering them, then just buy them.
Being a hi-fi enthusiast I have tested numerous speakers over the last 25 years BUT these speakers are absolutely astounding.
I placed the speakers quite wide apart on mid height stands and first tested using Dave Brubeck’s – Greatest Hits 1966 VINYL LP and began with ‘Take 5’ on my Project Essential Turntable, Rega Brio R Amplifier & QED Silver Anniversary Speaker Cable – bi-wired.
I have never heard anything sound so glorious. The tone is rich but neutral and never overly bright with bass in just right amounts. Every instrument is separated and the Saxophone sounds as though it were in the centre of my living room and suspended in air.
I next tested Paolo Conte ‘ Sotto Le Stelle Del Jazz’ on CD, his piano was rich, detailed and vibrant and vocals hanging in the air centre of speakers. These are truly amazing speakers. I purchased the piano black versions and look beautiful with my hi-fi equipment.
The build quality is far superior to other brands I have tried and tested over the years. A truly magnificent pair of speakers at a very low price.
