"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 Last.fm.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ok if you live on an island Bought this sound bar along with an oled tv for a then future occasion. Now I've finally got time to use it. What a disappointment. Films and TV are either a little too quiet or very very loud. Impossible to find a happy medium. I play call of duty and if sound bar is used is very neighbour unfriendly so have to turn it right down to almost mute!! Got rid of an old lg sound bar for this and that was more manageable. During action films have to constantly turn up and down when you think there's going to be an explosion turn down on dialogue turn up. Just easier to use the TVs sound. Very very disappointed in product especially when not exactly cheap

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, not so good integration Love the sound bar, just doesn’t seem to integrate well with our Samsung TV. Keep having to update the settings so we don’t have sound coming from both the tv and the sound bar at the same time. Perhaps it’s a tv issue rather than the sound bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service, great product! I arrived one wet, stormy afternoon, just after someone had tried to do a 'smash and grab' robbery (glass everywhere!). However, the robber had failed; to steal anything and to dampen the store team's service! As some store managers were cleaning up, another opened the door and welcomed me. Another then rushed off to locate my reserved product and I was in-and-out in minutes. That's why I love RS. As for the Q Acoustics Soundbar? It's brought a new lease of life to our smart tv. Everything from documentaries to drama to (of course) music just sounds so much better and i'm especially happy with the bass frequencies which emit from the inbuilt subwoofer. The sound quite literally fills our living room with super enjoyable and large vibrations. Great stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sound is so pin sharp you could draw blood Needed a sound bar as my new Panasonic 4k flat screen looked amazing but the sound was a lot to be desired, so just wanted a 2.1 sound bar, and this one really hits the spot if your after pure sound with a lovely dimension to vocals, effects and music. Perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from British Quality! Excellent sound / value soundbar I bought one of these for my parents to go with their new TV. Their hearing isn't what it used to be and they always had their old TV on very loud and were always searching for subtitles. The clarity of speech with this soundbar, now means they don't require the volume as high. Whilst their TV was an award winning, excellent LED unit, this has taken the sound into an entirely different category. I liked it so much I've bought one for myself. I had been planning to purchase a significantly more expensive amplifier with surround speakers, but decided to 'make do' with one of these. Much simpler, compact, and far less obtrusive. My wife has breathed a sigh of relief! It slightly impedes the remote sensitivity of our Samsung TV, but I'm going to use a piece of wooden work surface to elevate it above the height of the soundbar. Once again, Richer Sounds service has been exemplary. I have bought over the telephone and always received fantastic advice, and quick efficient and polite service. This matches the unrivalled service they provide in-store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Really impressed with the build quality. Even the packaging was pleasingly solid. Sound quality is excellent too, particularly bass from the built-in subwoofers, and a big improvement on my Samsung flatscreen - which isn't too bad actually. Although the way sound is cast equally around the room is good, I am not going to throw away my (ancient) home theatre system just yet.Worth noting too that the sound is gimmick-free, i.e. no controls other than volume and only an on/off/source indicator display light. My single criticism and the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is its height. The Q4 obscures the lower screen of my tv when placed in front of it on the same level and I would guess placement will be a general issue. My recommendation would come with that proviso.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Remote control is so poor This is a good soundbar but it is spoiled by the poor remote control, which is tiny and has only five buttons. It is so small that it could easily get lost down the side of the sofa or thrown out with the newspapers. It reeks of cheapness. I happened to have a URC7980 One For One remote control and by chance it is capable of controlling this soundbar. The code to set it up is 0641. Note that there are few remotes that can control this device. Another niggle is that if I turn off the power at the mains when the soundbar is not in use the volume defaults to a pre-set low level. This means I have to use the remote to increase the volume to an acceptable setting when the soundbar is turned on again. The mains lead (it has a figure of 8 connector) could also be longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Q acoustics M4 - an old one but a good one ! Jason and the guys at Cheltenham Richersounds delivered as always, they took the time for me to try out four different soundbars, and the M4 stood out a mile in terms of quality v cost. I queried the claim by Q acoustics to be able to use a sky remote, but it works like a dream. I understand it won’t work with the new Sky Q remotes which is something to bare in mind if you want to future proof your purchase, the newer Q acoustic soundbars have an HDMI arc, However do not compare to the bigger but older M4 !

Date published: 2018-03-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound for size Bought this to replace a full 5.1 system which was too large for a new living room. I initially found the sound lacked depth but having used for a couple of weeks I have become used to it and it seems to have warmed up. Whilst obviously missing bass compared to the last system it does sound good. Speech is clear and the music streaming is a nice feature that's easy to use. I'm really happy with it. The store (Chester) were great, there was plenty of choice and help available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Service I bought the Media 4 soundbar and it worked great for 1week and then failed from infant mortality. I contacted the branch where I purchased it from (Litchfield) who were very helpful and quickly changed it. The replacement unit works fine, I am very pleased with the sound quality from this soundbar, it is very good with music as well as movies. I am now a very happy customer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vast improvement on the tv speakers Very pleased with the product and the staff who spend time showing me the different products. The sound from the unit is as good as I had hoped, especially pleased with the bass response considering it is all in the one unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trust in the knowledge Explained by Paul at shelffield branch the qualities of this bar. tried it in store and it was good. Got it home and I was not sure. Rung the store and spoke to Stuart who assured me this was a very good sound bar for the money, and his own choice at this price would be the same. Perhaps I was expecting too much as I normally use an av amp. Great clarity in the bar plus good bass. Decided to add my own sub (which I had spare). The bar already has the connection for an active sub. wow what a diffence. Now I have the extra bass plus the clarity. These guys know what they are talking about, and alnyone concerned should listen. Probably got 35years experience between them. Thank you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A glorified speaker Sound goes from quiet to quite loud with one press on remote. Unable to control volume in small stages. Switches itself off now and again
Date published: 2018-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound Bar I was very impressed with the Clarity of Speech and the Detailed Reproduction of Music which also gave an adequate Bass and Volume for my average sized lounge. My only gripe was the remote buttons would be easier to use if they where laid out Horizontally. Top. On Off. Middle. The Source and Mute. and Bottom the Volume buttons. However a Great Soundbar for a 40 inch plus T. V.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How television is supposed to sound Purchased from Richer sounds Plymouth. Staff steered me away from M2 sound base and I am so happy they did. What a difference to watching TV, clear spacious sound even at low volume. Spotify connect sounds so so good. Haven't powered up my arcam system since I purchased this. That speaks volumes as to just how good this is. Haven't heard any sound bar come close to this. Buy one you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought this because of poor TV sound. Fed with a good signal the speaker is brilliant, however it hasn't really improved the pathetic sound on so many of the TV shows that are broadcast these days

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific sound I bought this in the Sheffield branch from Stuart . He gave me great advice and saved me money with is knowledge . The soundbar is fantastic and so easy to set up and connect your Bluetooth and TV to , excellent sound and plenty off base when needed on films and programs . Only downside is the size of the remote it’s so small and doesn’t do the soundbar justice .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the Job Really pleased with my Q Acoustics Soundbar. I have a hearing aid for both ears and having to turn the original T V speakers to a high volume they had started to distorted very badly. The sound bar has of course cured this and has enhanced my listening pleasure. Thanks to Richer Sounds at Lichfield for their good service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all round sound. Bought this to replace an LG Sound Bar and sub woofer. This performs better and there is no big speaker to find room for. Put this just above my 65” Tv, fitted to the wall, using the simple bracket provide. Had it on the wall in ten minutes and it looks great. Very clear sound, high or low, a true cinema experience, all round, can’t fault it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Q acoustics soundbar Have had the bar for 1 month and the sound is good but changing the volume is challenging as you need to be directly in front of the bar for it to respond to the remote.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality item, geat sound, flimsy remote. This is my 2nd purchase of a Q Acoustics M4 soundbar in my opinion they are simply a great soundbar, very easy to set up & very easy to use the sound reproduced is excellent, I have 1 connected to my 55" 3d LG & 1 connected to my 49" 4K LG & both sound fantastic the only gripe I have is the remote it is a little dissapointing for such a quality item & does need updating.
