What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision 5 Star
"All in all these are fine speakers for the money and, although rivals are plentiful, they're good enough to worry the best in the class. It's a long time since we've said that about any Acoustic Energy speaker." March 2013
Versatile, modern and compact, the 301.
With its front slot port the 301 offers great flexibility with positioning, sounding fantastic and fitting comfortably anywhere in your home.
The 301 is the most compact member of the 3-Series, measuring just 300 x 185 x 250 mm yet still retains the clean, powerful, articulate sound.
With minimal distortion and resonance the 301 will offer you supreme clarity and cohesion wherever it is placed.
"The 301 is a very capable loudspeaker that punches well above its weight given such a relatively modest selling price. It is detailed, clear and will show subtle differences when partnered with top-class source components and amplification." March 2013
"OUTSTANDING - amongst the best." November 2013
"The 3-Series is a highly impressive speaker system for the money. Its price tag certainly isn’t peanuts, but it’s much less than you’d normally expect to pay for a system of this calibre. Its build quality and styling are simply stunning, but it’s the outstanding audio performance that really seals the deal." May 2013
Acoustic Energy has often produced designs that perform well at real-world prices and made very attractive speakers. In the 3-Series it's done it again. Fantastic looks, well bolted together and enjoyable to listen to. - Home Cinema
Acoustic Energy makes all of its own speaker ingredients and that pillar-box slot at the bottom, which enhances bass, makes it easier to position. Put the hole at the back of the speaker and bass sounds muddy when the speaker is placed against the wall. Put the hole at the front and the problem goes away. Soundwise? Clean, crisp detail and a refined yet well-rounded sound.
