Q. Which receiver or amplifier works best with Q Acoustics loudspeakers?

Q Acoustics loudspeakers will produce great sound when matched with any good quality amplifier or receiver.

There are a great number of very good amplifiers available today and we cannot be familiar with them all. Some of the brands we respect and have used in demonstrations are Cambridge Audio, Denon, Marantz and Arcam. Just check that their power capability is compatible with our recommendation for the loudspeakers you're wanting to use.

AV Receivers specifications tend to read as if they have more power capability than they actually have, as they often quote power output with only one or two channels running, rather than all 5 or 7 or more. As a general rule, it's better for a loudspeaker to be driven by a high powered amplifier used responsibly, rather than a low powered amplifier over-driven.

Here's a link to a blog which we have created on the subject for more information: https://www.qacoustics.co.uk/blog/2017/08/14/beginners-guide-matching-speakers-amplifiers/
