Q Acoustics is introducing a new all gloss version of the Concept 500 model from this month.
The full gloss model at £3,599 comes in a white or black gloss finish, while the dual finish model at £3,999 acts as a, “…showcase for the white and black gloss facade with subtle strips of Italian pale oak or deep rosewood real-wood veneer at the rear for a sophisticated visual cue,” said an obviously excited and colour-coded member of staff.
