”The M2 throws out a sound big enough to match the biggest of TV screens.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 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 5 out of 5 by from Makes a real difference Tried a soundbar, then this. The Q Acoustics was head and shoulders improvement. Sound is superb. Added benefit that so simple to set up, comes with HMDI connection so all you need is in the box. Can definitely recommend. Richer Sounds staff very helpful and knowledgeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second M2 My kitchen/diner has had a makeover so new tv/M2 from Mr. Richer. I already have an M2 for the living room so I've gone with what I know - now £90 cheaper than when I first bought two years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this over the soundbar for fuller sound. Bass is punchy and much better volume and clarity than the TV speakers. Also great for my grandparents who have naturally lost some of their high frequencies sensitivity. ARC makes it hassle free to connect and control (also great for my grandparents). Good price. Would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Incredibly easy to set up. Connected via HDMI(ARC) straight out of the box and ready to go immediately. Volume can be controlled from TV remote, although it uses plus and minus symbols rather than a number to indicate volume. It takes a few seconds for the sound to come through but you get used to that. The improvement in sound is noticeable immediately and the improvement is significant. There is real depth and scale. Dialogue is clear and music is well-presented as you would expect from Q Acoustics. Bass is adequate and nicely controlled. All in all, an excellent soundbase representing real quality and great value for money. Recommended

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ultimately disappointing The first thing to note is that this is a big and heavy unit. Fine if you want such a platform for your TV but not so good is you need something to fit discretely into a cabinet. The M2 sticks out of the front of mine slightly. Measure up before you buy! So what about the sound quality? The top notes are very crisp and clear but the tone lacks bass. A better, bassier bet in my view is the Sony HT-FS200 which comes in at about the same price. I bought it initially but, curiously, when I connected it to my Manhatten T3 TV recorder there was a lip sync issue which I didn't get with the M2. The remote control includes a button for movie mode but this didn't sound any different to standard. Another slight niggle is that the on/off button always shows a colour light (there are several depending on how you're using the M2) which can be distracting when you're watching TV. I've covered up the button with some card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great and looks great! I bought this soundbase to improve the sound from my 32" Panasonic TV. Really happy with the significant enhancement and the TV sits neatly centred on top of the M2. The 'EQ' option for music and movies is excellent and the bluetooth set up so easy. Great value at under £200, very happy to recommend this as a fine budget piece of equipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Norfolk Would have given this 5 stars but initially had trouble getting 3.5 Jack input to work. Richer Sounds sorted that out and now I'm very pleased with it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great package I was downsizing to a much smaller house and my old 1970s hi fi was way to big for my new more bijou residence. But what to replace it with? I also wanted a Bluetooth speaker and fancied getting the TV to sound a bit nicer. My total budget was what I could sell my hi fi for - around £200. After much thought I decided to go for a soundbar and use my dvd player for playing CDs. The Q Acoustic M2 had loads of rave reviews do I went down to the helpful people at Richer Sounds to listen to it and decided to buy it. Firstly, straight off the bat, this is not as good as my old hi-fi. However, it is small easy to use, does everything I need all in one package and with its built in sub woofer, the sound is surprisingly rich and clear. I don't regret buying it for one second. First off the bat
