”The M2 throws out a sound big enough to match the biggest of TV screens.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

BMR speakers for a powerful and 180 degree spacious sound

Just like its soundbar kin, the M2 uses BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) drive units. These combine the advantages of both flat panel and conventional speakers to give a truly powerful sound without distortion. Another advantage is BMR drivers give superb spatial imaging meaning that you can sit anywhere in the room and be immersed by the spacious 180 degree sound.

Built-in subwoofer
Rather than using a separate subwoofer, the M2 has the subwoofer within its main casing. This makes for a neater design and less wiring. Using a dedicated 150mm x 100mm drive unit, plus its own amplifier, the M2 has little trouble in reproducing deep, powerful movie soundtracks.

MoviEQ for cinema excitement
Making the most of action movies, the MoviEQ setting gives increased bass and heightened dynamics for the perfect ‘edge of the seat’ cinema excitement.

Bluetooth music streaming with NFC
As well as making your TV sound great, the M2 also has Bluetooth music streaming. Simply pair your device and stream music from your smartphone, tablet or Bluetooth-equipped laptop or desktop. Stream your music library or use a music streaming service such as Spotify, Apple Music or the iPlayer Radio and the M3 becomes a compact music system. With NFC (Near Field Connection), a simple tap from your smartphone is often all you need to do to connect.

HDMI with ARC and other great connectivity for system flexibility
With HDMI connectivity you can link up the M2 using the connection that gives the best quality and convenience. Thanks to the ARC (Audio Return Channel) you also only need a single HDMI cable between soundbar and TV to hear the sound from the TV's onboard receiver. There are also optical digital and two analogue inputs for other sources such as a set-top box, Blu-ray/DVD and MP3 player. With the analogue inputs you've a choice of 3.5mm mini-jack or RCA phono.

Boost the sound of your TV and smartphone’s sound, with the Q Acoustics M2.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Most definitely not a home cinema system! I just wanted to share my experiences of this soundbase. I first gave this a whirl with The Greatest Showman, it did a stirling job of that movie, but on further investigation it appears that was due to the soundtrack consisting of mostly music. After this I thought I'd stretch its cinematic legs and popped Sherlock Holmes (2009) into my Blu-ray player, a superb Hans Zimmer soundtrack and lots of dynamic moments, but it just fell flat, the sound was simply loud, not immersive. I thought the soundtrack may have been poorly produced (despite knowing it isn't, but thought I'd investigate anyway...), so I tried the first Transformers movie, again I know how good the soundtrack is, but once again, it was underwhelming. To summarise this is a soundbase to enhance your general viewing, mainly vocals, it's NOT a home cinema, not by a long shot! The M2 takes a very "hi-fi" approach to sound, it's clear, detailed and neutral, which can be great for music, but movies are a different ballgame, cinemas are equipped with dynamic sound systems for a reason... I also noted that at times the remote/unit itself can be very unresponsive (much like Q Acoustics "customer service" dept), it also doesn't retain input or EQ settings so they have to be selected every time you power on (even from standby), which is irritating. On the whole, I miss the reasonably cheap Panasonic 2.1 system it replaced, the only saving grace is that it's neater!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge improvement to tv speakers Got given this for Christmas to add some punch to my tv. I have always prefered separates and honestly, this is not really a substitute for a surround sound system. That said I was very impressed with the sound these produce. My living room is fairly big ( 20 feet x 14 feet) but the sound fills the space very well. The "eq" feature works well to add a bit more base for action movies and the like. I also got my 1tb sky q remote to work to controll the on/off and volume. It is thin on the ground when it comes to features but works great for movies, tv shows and is surprisingly good when connected via Bluetooth to play music. Great bit of kit for a good price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound We bought this a couple of weeks ago. Although our new TV has good sound my husband is partially deaf and so many of the programmes on TV have rather quiet speech and he cannot make out what is being said without having the TV so loud you can hear it outside! This sound bar gives a lovely clear, crisp sound and is great for films and music.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.5 stars, worthwhile addition to TV, strong sound Being used as the sound output for the TV for which at most of the sound range is very good and a welcome improvement from the naturally limited flat screen TV. Clear, strong, a good warm balance, not quite full stereo hifi sound but what you'd want/expect from a single unit. Only downside - stopping 5 stars - is the sound at the quietest / lowest level which compared to the normal tinnier TV sounds almost muffled due to the warmth / quality, when I'd keep it off and just use the TV; but this was alway the plan, not to use the sound base continuously but more for movies / concerts and therefore it suits our purpose very well. Plus its use via bluetooth to stream music it is strong, again not quite 5 star (lacking the full depth of a hifi system), but certainly fit for purpose and decent value for a single unit. Very simple to set up with TV and with bluetooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound and attractively styling This Q Acoustics M2 unit is very attractively designed, easy to set up, and produces a very impressive sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound. Really easy to set up I have a fairly simply flat screen TV with a great picture but rubbish sound. The TV now sits on the M2 and the sound is amazing. The TV itself does not have a HDMI output for handling the audio but the M2 accepts a 3.5mm socket to phonos and this works perfectly well. The bluetooth performance is really good from the mobile or laptop and the sound is as clear as a bell. I stream my radio through it as routine. Top and low end frequencies are really clear and distinct and so easy to listen to. Would recommend 110% if you need a compact soundstage to listen to. so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple setup and great sound Sound is considerable improvement on the Panasonic Theatre Sound system it replaced. Looking forward to watching the New Year's Day concert from Vienna. It is a family tradition in our household.
