Paul Rigby reviews and compares the 3030i speakers to the 3020i, original 3020 and Martin Logan 15i speakers

But that’s not all. I also take a closer look at those similar drivers in the Q Acoustics 3050i speakers.

    Do I leave a comment on here, or on utube? I’m going for here…
    Very interesting revue Paul, as always entertaining as well as informative.
    My current speakers are B&W CDM1SEs, which I’m guessing must be at least 10 years old now. I like them still, but have the urge to consume upon me, and my eye dwells on the 3030is.
    My question after watching, is: will a ‘budget’ modern speaker (the 3030i) out perform an aging mid-level design (the CDM1)? How far have we come in terms of speaker development do you think?

      Hi Alex – either 🙂

      I’d go for the 3030i designs which I’d say offer superior tone balance.

    Hi Paul. Awesome summing up off new 3030i. I have Concept 20’s do you think the 3030i would be an upgrade.
    Secondly will my Rega Brio R drive the 3030i nicely. Please test them with yours and give me your input as I would like to not necessarily upgrade amp aswell.

      Thanks Peter – I have yet to do a full A-B on the 20s vs 3030i so take this view with a slight pinch of salt – I’d go for the 3030i speakers.
