"Sensibly priced and sounds fantastic, so we would happily part with our hard-earned cash. Its a great solution for the price."What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2016

BMR for room-filling sound
Using twin 65mm BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) drive units, the Media 4 gives pinpoint accuracy and is bursting with detail right up to high volume levels. BMR technology combines the advantages of both flat panel and conventional speakers, so that the M4 is truly dynamic and won't turn harsh when the music or film action gets intense. Another advantage of BMR speakers is the superb spatial imaging - compared with conventional drive units, they provide a broad and spacious sound that comes right out 'into' the room.

Built-in subwoofer
Rather than using a separate subwoofer, the M4 has the subwoofer in the main casing. This makes for a neater overall package and less wiring. Using a dedicated 150mm x 120mm drive unit, plus its own 50W amplifier, the M4 has little trouble in reproducing deep, powerful movie soundtracks.

NFC and Bluetooth for music streaming
Using NFC or Bluetooth technology, you can connect up just about any smartphone, tablet or newer laptop, Mac or PC and stream your music. With compatible NFC devices, simply hold the unit next to the top of the soundbar and you're good to stream. With Bluetooth you pair your device with the soundbar. Once done, you'll be able to stream music from your stored library or from streaming music services such as Spotify or

Complete with wall bracket
Coming with both detachable feet and a wall bracket, you can choose how to place your M4 soundbar. Once positioned, connection is easy, too. Choose between an optical digital lead (ideal for most TVs), or RCA phono or 3.5mm analogue inputs.

Offering the ideal blend of sound quality, versatility and value, the Q Acoustics Media 4 brings it all together in one.

Q ACOUSTICS MEDIA 4 (M4) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound This is the first soundbar I have purchased. Very pleased excellent sound both for movies and music. Thought I made need a subwoofer but there is no need as there is plenty of base.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound for music & movies I only have a small room so didn't want a sub as well, I went to the Cardiff store where Joh was very helpful, when asking him about the different sound bars at this price range he told me which ones would work better in the corner of the room and said this one was by far the best for my option. I am very happy with the sound quality & the bass is not overpowering. You will not be disappointed with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound - easy to set up I did a bit of homework and this product came out pretty strongly in reviews. Since setting it up I've found the sound to be excellent. The only thing I'd say is that it's a bit taller than some sound bars which means it does't fit nicely under my TV - the TV is resting on some legs which probably give it enough space for a slimmer sound bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tidy solution and no seperate sub woofer This unit is simple to set up via optical feed (no HDMI Arc however), a bit of searching and I had the volume linked onto the sky remote and 4in1 remote. I'm no expert however sound and clarity is excellent in my opinion. A worthwhile purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Bar, worthy of the awards that it has won! Great sounding product, combined with the off-the-wall motion Tv Stand and a Panasonic 50 inch DX700. The depth of the soundbar can limit installation possibilities, however if you can make it work then a very worth while soundbar, especially for the money! We purchased from our local branch in Leicester assisted by a very helpful Levi who was more than happy to suggest alternatives and play a variety of sources before we made our final decision. A real credit to your team. Thanks!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Q ACOUSTICS MEDIA 4 Good quality for the price. would have liked a bit more depth in the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From 5.1 to Soundbar I recently moved from a 5.1 sound system to this soundbar. I made my decions based on some research and found that this product was the best value for the budget that I had. Pro's > Easy to set up, nice design, good rich powerful sound! Con's> It is large and does not fit conveniently with most TV stands and in the case of my Panasonic TV it is too big to sit in front as obscures viewing, so sits behind - making use of the remote challenging (sofa arm gymnastics); If you don't have Virgin or Sky to sync with (i.e. BT TV and Now TV like me) you have to have another remote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hi fidelity soundbar After hearing it in the shop I knew it was just right for me even though its more expensive than some Panasonic soundbars that I had been looking at to go with my 58 inch Panasonic 4 k tv. What clinched it was the sound quality and built in sub woofers giving me the sound I wanted without the addition of a seperate sub woofer. After attaching its optical connector to my tv it was easy to set up and loud as Im ever going to need. There is one thing I need to mention its slightly larger than its Panasonic equivalents so does obstruct the bottom of my tv screen. I got around this by placing it behind my tv where the only down side is controlling the remote ,you have to get very close to the tv or point the remote behind the tv. You can however wall mount it . It comes with everything you need optical cable screws brackets etc. In the sub £400 mark you wont get a much better sound than this. Seriously impressed by my purchase.Works with Virgins Tivo remote .
