Q Active Control Hub
Compatible with a Google Assistant- enabled device with Chromecast built-in or works with Amazon Alexa.
Q Active’s hub is the heart of the system and also supports physical formats and converts them into a high resolutions 24bit/96kHz digital file. The hub then streams this high-resolution audio file to the speakers – so any format you want to listen to can be dealt with wirelessly by your Q Active system. Which means high-quality wireless audio performance no matter the source of your music.
* Alexa enabled coming soon.
Ethernet connectivity provides the option for a robust wired internet connection to Q Active.
The Q Active range is a true active design, with class D amplification eliminating the need for a bulky external amp or receiver. Q Active 200 speakers feature twin Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) drive units in an offset configuration that deliver a widescreen sound dispersal and a huge sweet spot: so no matter where you’re sitting in the room, you’ll hear the same rich, detailed and expressive sound from the Q Active speakers.
Meticulous attention to detail has produced a compact, high-performance system that makes a distinctive visual statement - but every element of Q Active has been engineered to deliver the best performance possible.
As well as the panoramic, widescreen sound delivered by the BMR arrangement and the deep, controlled bass served up by the carefully specified and positioned subwoofers, Q Acoustics has paid painstaking attention to the way the Q Active 200 cabinet contributes to the system’s outstanding sonic performance.
‘Dart’ bracing is in the Q Active 200 cabinet to provide essential stiffness to the cabinet and equally helpful mechanical stability to the rear-firing subwoofer units.
