A Life of Harmony
Strictly speaking, the Q Acoustics Concept 300 is not a British speaker at all, because its creative father is Karl-Heinz Fink, one of the world's most respected and busy loudspeaker developers – who lives and works in Essen, Germany.
For years, the parent company of Q Acoustics – Armour Home – has also benefited from the experience and curiosity of the developer, who always has a few different projects and who works for many different companies.
Measurements & Feeling
Fink's development laboratory is probably home to the highest density of Klippel measuring instruments in Germany, which enables him and his team to already in the computer get rid of most of the unwanted peculiarities in their chassis constructions. Additionally, Fink also invests a lot of time in tuning the prototypes intensively in his acoustically optimized listening rooms. What's even better for potential customers is the fact that he keeps coming up with ideas that have a major impact on sound quality but can be implemented at a manageable cost.
One example is the clever idea of using a permanently elastic gel between different cabinet-layers to remove unwanted high-frequency vibrations. Another is his application of the Finite Element-method, to use cabinet reinforcements only exactly where they are needed and where they achieve maximum efficiency.
