Shipping & Returns

Thank you for considering Yorkshire AV for your next investment in your AV or HiFi setup.

We are an approved retailer for all brands sold on our website, which means full manufacturers warranty and support as well as detailed product knowledge within our small business.

We use an inventory tracking system which states if item(s) are in stock and if not, what are the likely lead times.

Who do you use for delivery?

Our primary delivery agent is DPD. Where orders are shipped directly from Yorkshire AV, we always use DPD who offer a fabulous service at competitive rates.

If we drop ship (i.e. direct from the supplier) then the delivery agent is out of our control. It is generally DPD or UPS however - we rarely see other carriers used.

Selecting "Next Day" delivery does not mean you'll receive your item the next day in some cases. It's the next day from when the item(s) are in stock with us. If there is an urgent need then please contact a member of staff via the Live Chat or telephone (01757 826111) to check on live stock levels.

Certain product(s) are delayed in manufacturing due to semi-conductor shortages across the Globe. We'll keep you informed as to your order progress and a likely ETA once we get updates from the manufacturers.

Stock Information

When will orders be dispatched?

  • Orders placed Monday - Thursday before 1pm and are in stock will be dispatched the same day for next day delivery. This relates to product that state 'In Stock for immediate dispatch' on the product page.
  • Orders placed over a weekend and are in stock will be dispatched on Monday.

Orders for items not in stock

Given the vast amount of variations of each product (e.g. AudioQuest cables) or Pro-Ject Audio Turntables - we keep the most common options in stock (i.e. gloss black finish, or 1.5m RCA cables) whereas longer cables or cables with terminations that are less frequently ordered will be ordered as required.

Generally speaking - we receive orders within 2-3 days for UK suppliers and 3-4 days for European suppliers (i.e. AudioQuest, DALI).

We want you to be 100% satisfied which is why we'll give you an email/call if item(s) aren't in stock and give you the option of changing the order, cancelling or if you're happy to wait a few days, we'll get it out as soon as possible.

If an item states 'Available to Order' - this means the item is not in stock but we are able to order in. Lead times average 2 days but in some circumstances, delivery times may be longer and is outside of our control. Please contact us to get an estimate on delivery times if orders are urgent. 

As always - we welcome a conversation about your requirements and will always explore all options to connect you with the right solution.

Product details

Versatile. Sound. Design.

Expect The Exceptional.

An entire high-resolution wireless audio system, delivering uncompromised hi-fi sound that fits conveniently and seamlessly into your lifestyle.

Key Features

  • High fidelity sound with true wireless connectivity from multiple streaming services: Apple AirPlay 2, Roon, Spotify and plenty more gives access to a planet’s-worth of music.
  • Integrate your TV, turntable, games console and more into your wireless, music-streaming system.
  • Voice control - works with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa (available early 2021) or Apple Siri for easy voice control.

Versatile

Q Acoustics has designed the Q Active range from the ground up, with the express intent of delivering an uncompromised, versatile high-resolution system that can play music from any source – TV, network music streamer, smartphone, laptop, and even a turntable.  

A compact central Control Hub configured either for Google “Chromecast built-in” or Amazon “Works with Alexa” (coming 2021) is supplied with each pair of speakers, which allows users to connect to a variety of wired and wireless sources. The Hub can be connected to your home network using ethernet or wi-fi.

Sound

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 400 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.

Design

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 400 cabinet contributes to the system’s outstanding sonic performance.

‘Dart’ bracing is in the Q Active 400 cabinet to provide essential stiffness to the cabinet and equally helpful mechanical stability to the rear-firing subwoofer units.
