Which Speaker Set Is Best For Studio? Sonos 5.1 Bundle VS Q Acoustics 7000i 5.1 Cinema Pack Review Comparison 2021


Sonos is a Californian electronics company established in 2002 whose focus is on designing and manufacturing wireless hi-fi speakers and audio equipment without compromising on high fidelity sound. The wireless networking of Sonos devices and its uncomplicated interface has made their products very popular. Upgrading the Sonos sound system to 5.1 does not come cheap but it is worthwhile for true music lovers.

On the other hand Q Acoustics the UK company which is known for providing high-quality sonic devices at very affordable prices. Their products rapidly received acclaim from reviews and users alike for featuring stylish designs and providing flawless sound at an unbeatable rate. Last month Q Acoustics released their brand new series 7000i along with its home theatre sound system package; the 7000i 5.1 Cinema Pack. Let us go through both the systems and find out which one triumphs over the other.

The 7000i 5.1 Cinema Pack includes two pairs of 7000LRi satellite speakers, one 7000Ci center speaker, and a 7000Si subwoofer. The unit delivers powerful sound. The satellite speakers are small in size yet equal to most speakers when tested for dynamics and soundstage. The newly added bass driver units and crossovers improve the devices’ performance. Value-added woofers use lightweight paper-coated cones with an ultra-long throw while the treble is upgraded by using new ‘Ring Radiator’ units giving the Q7000i refined 5.1 surround sound.

The 7000Si subwoofer supports the speakers flawlessly. By pairing a well-integrated 200mm High Excursion bass unit with 150 watts Class D amplifier it delivers a controlled and well-detailed bass effect. All the devices feature adjustable frequency, volume, and phase controls and offer variable installation options (by using customized stands and wall brackets by Q Acoustics) according to the users’ requirements and room dimensions.

7000i 5.1 Cinema Pack comes with a sleek modern look and is available in colors black and white. The speakers have a smooth cylindrical shape, breaking the monotony of boxed-shaped speakers. Concealed terminals and discrete cable settings also add to the impressive finish of the devices. Priced at £900, any flaws in the 7000i 5.1 Cinema Pack sonically or design-wise are yet to be discovered.

Sonos 5.1 Bundle comprises the Sonos Playbar, Sonos Sub, and a pair of Sonos PLAY:3 speakers. Play 3 is a well-built wireless speaker and produces clear sound and balanced bass at all levels of frequency. The Play 3 easily yields heavy bass and delivers refined audio regardless of its type or genre. The Playbar features six mid-range drivers and three tweeters which deliver flawless atmospheric sound. Its 90cm long sleek design allows the user to place it under or over their television sets and enjoy a high-grade home theatre sound system.

The Sonos Sub is the subwoofer that adds the perfect amount of bass required by the Sonos 5.1 Bundle. It weighs a hefty 16kgs but produces absolutely no vibration or rattling, making it suitable to be placed anywhere in the house. The Sub connected with the Playbar brings out deeper sound adding an extra dimension to the surround sound system. This combination digs into the detail of the midrange as well as brings richness to the lows.

All Sonos wireless audio devices are controlled by the Sonos app. It is an easy-to-use, user-friendly interface and allows the user to manage all the Sonos by using a cell phone, tablet or laptop. The app synchronizes all the devices together to form the powerful Sonos 5.1 Bundle. As the devices are wireless, they can be easily installed without a problem.

Costing almost double the 7000i 5.1 Cinema Pack, Sonos 5.1 Bundle is a hefty sum to pay.
