"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 4 out of 5 by from Proper Sound Delighted with the purchase. Had initially bought a bar with separate sub woofer but the extra "speaker" was .ugly . So exchanged for this version which incorporates all into the bar. Sound quality is excellent and I can't quite believe I've gone three years accepting poor sound quality from a flat screen tv. It makes a huge difference to clarity as well as a bigger sound. Recommended

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good soundbar, but with limitations Positives: In a relatively compact package you get full range sound which is amazing for the size. Negatives: Although acclaimed for their musical abilities, I found that details in music weren't forthcoming at low volumes. And it simply too loud at volumes where the details are clear. Bass is not punchy enough. Remote volume increments aren't granular enough, so its quite one minute and too loud next button press. Service from Richer sounds reading could not be faulted. Very knowledgeable and friendly bunch of people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice sounding speaker This is a solid weighty speaker, that delivers a crisp stereo sound and projects it up in front of the screen, whilst supported by ample bass. Easily connects to Ipad or mobile via Bluetooth for music, and is capable of being turned up loud enough for most people without distorting. Only downside I've found, is that the Sky Q box does not recognise the speaker (when using the Bluetooth remote), so the volume has to be controlled via the dedicated remote - which is not really a hardship. If you do not have room for a surround sound, or just don't want one, then this is a speaker to consider - even though it maybe be considered an older model and with its lack of HDMI cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the job! The soundbar has been working for 3 weeks now and it has made a tremendous difference to my flat screen Phillips TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant bit of kit I thought I’d already reviewed this, but never mind, a second is warranted. My wife’s idea, she is a trifle deaf. This is a superb addition to the telly, she now can not only hear all she ought, but gets all the background too. Lots of good rich bass notes, excellent solid feel to the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superbly Simple and High Quality After 2 weeks of bedding in, the quality and detail of sound is clear for all to hear. In an ever complex tech world, it is awesome to find something which is literally plug and play yet sounds so pure. Very impressed and happy with our purchase and the level of service/experience received at Rich Sounds, Leeds; thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing M4 Sound Bar Have owned this now for about 10 days, hadn't heard before purchase but the rave What HiFi reviews gave me confidence and I've also bought Q-Acoustics 3020s from R/Sounds for our kitchen - diner mini system which have impressed over the last year. For such a compact one box solution the M4 is very capable, have been watching high def YouTV videos recenlty, ie Jeff Beck at Ronnie Scott's and the band have real weight, drive and dynamism that the built in speakers on our 4K TV can't put across. Whats more there's a Sub-Out outlet which I intend to connect my Q-Acoustics sub-woofer to at some point but to be honest haven't yet felt the need as the M4's bottom end is so solid, tuneful and expressive. Am truely impressed by this bit of kit and with 4K visuals the whole live music experience is very engaging. Full marks.........

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic!! Purchased the soundbar from Richer Sounds in Newcastle over the weekend and i'm pleased to say that is has exceeded my expectations. Both sound and build quality are amazing. Bluetooth integration is also excellent - simply double tap the power button to pair with a new device. I paid £230 - would not have been disappointed had i paid £300. I honestly can't recommend this soundbar enough!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great soundbar Bought this 3 weeks ago from Watford shop - very helpful staff (Ben). I have Connected my existing subwoofer to it & that makes it sound even better. As a previous reviewer has noted, the volume control is not granular enough - it's eith too loud or too soft. Thought I could use my Virgin V+ remote controller but, unlike a Sky controller, it seems that it will not link to the soundbar .. a real downer!!!! Any advice would be welcome!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb service and excellent product! Kevin went the extra mile to demonstrate a sounder to us, having already outlined features of different models. His knowledge and enthusiasm was excellent and was happy to crawl on the floor to reconnect the equipment. Could not ask for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Brilliantly Straigh Out Of The Box Before purchasing the assistant at the Cheltenham store set the sound bar up in the stores demo room and I must say I was well impressed with the sound. What I really like is that there are no menus to adjust the sound on the sound bar itself, any adjustments can be made directly in menus on the sound source be it a TV or a Bluetooth source i.e. mobile phone considering the sub is built into the base of the soundbar the bass response is excellent and overall makes for a much tidier installation. I have no hesitation in recommending this product lets face it it wasn't a What HiFi? product of the year for no reason.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bit weak on bass Looks good and sounds better then TV speakers. Claims to have built in subwoofer but has optional output to a separate sub if you want more bass. Sounds really good if you plug one in. It has Bluetooth so you can connect phone or tablet with ease. Does not come with instruction book, you have to go online. Can programme SKY remote to operate but need to read manual. Worth the money but needs more bass especially at modest volumes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soundbar Just bought this item from Richer Sounds and from start to finish the process and customer service was excellent. Delivered within 3 days of choosing normal delivery and was messaged via text to what hour it would arrive letting me to be free for rest of the day. Great experience overall, I would use again and buy more from Richer Sounds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound quality As a sound bar this product has a quality sound. It has clarity in speech and a controlled effective base. It isn't fully surround but it more than makes up for that with it's brilliantly directed sound from quality internal equipment. A bit on the large side depending on the amount of room that you have available but I think that the size lends to the quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good quality sounds but some annoying faults Firstly the overall quality is very good but there are a few annoying issues. 1. The remote only reaches about 2.5m. My room is 5m X 4m and I have to reach out towards the speaker to change the volum 2. You can pair your phone to the speaker but you have to turn off Bluetooth when in range of the speaker because if you do anything on your phone it can affect the speaker; volum up/down or even turn the speaker off! 3. The volume is not granular enough. In our house the volume is either too low or too loud. 4. There's a distinct change is the sound quality between different volum points. At low volume it sound is a little muffled.if you turn up the volum one graduation the sound becomes much brighter Apart from these annoying issues the speaker is very good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Sound Ever If your looking for a sound bar to compliment your TV then give this one a miss The sound is worse than the TV Speaker sound and we all know how bad that is now A chunky piece of kit which sounds terrible a £50 soundbar sounds better No bass and No depth to the sound Don't waste your money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Sound Having heard the Q4 in the shop it certainly stood out amongst the others we had listened too. The choice confirmed once we had got it home and set it up. TV sound and movies much more realistic than listening through the TV. We had switched from a 5.1 surround system as we wanted a neater look to the lounge so we were a little concerned but needn't have been. Looks good and sounds great, streams and plays music to a very acceptable level too so the Hi Fi has been shifted to the study. Result neater lounge and no casualties. Dealing with Richer Sounds was also excellent, whilst holidaying in Yorkshire we popped into the shop there and received useful advice, on return home we went to the Guildford store and also received good impartial advice prior to the purchase. Blue Ray DVD player was not in stock but arrived within 2 days at no extra cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty excellent Beautiful piece of kit. It has plenty of power and has made watching movies and music a joy again. I wouldn't want more sub than this delivers, and I'm very happy with the tight delivery of kick drums and bass. My aging ears struggle to follow dialogue through the standard TV speakers, and this has helped a lot. Although I believe in listening to the sound without adjustment I think I would have liked a little more HF, or the choice to tweak it a bit. Apart from that it is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Sound We were recommended this sound bar by Steve at Chester and he was absolutely right. The sound quality is amazing. Good price too and no sub woofer required. Very sleek looking on TV stand. Steve recommended a cheaper one too but the advantages of the Q Acoustics was better by far for not much more. Extremely happy with our purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Given the size, this produces a good sound with depth and clarity. For the size of the unit, the Q Acoustic M4 produces a really good sound, so it does its job well. There is depth and clarity in the sound and it greatly enhances the viewing experience. Given the price it is great value for money. A minor niggles is that when I switch on my phone the Q Acoustics sound bar automatically switches away from the TV source to the Bluetooth source.
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The improvement in sound quality is noticeable. The installation instructions with the product are a very basic two page schematic with limited written instructions and I could not see any in English. So I put Richer Sounds customer services to the test and they came up trumps and had the sound bar working whilst I was on the phone to them. Its heavier and wider than I had anticipated and I now need to find a way to elevate the TV so that the lower edge is not being hidden by the sound bar. I am still happy with my purchase and would recommend this product and Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice piece of kit After doing a bit of research and listening to other soundbars, I took the plunge and bought this bad boy. Well impressed and with good reproduction, a bit of a bargain at this price. It is a beast of a sound bar but Q don't make rubbish and this proves it again. It might only 2.1 but it fills my front room well with sound. Nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clear, clean coherent sound. I needed a sound bar/base for a second living room, so after a lot of research I opted for a Cambridge audio tvb 2, but when in use it suffered from lip sync. So the guys at Liverpool richersound gladly replaced it for my new choice a Q Acoustics media 4, wow what a difference. The media 4 produces a nicely dispersed clear and warm sound, the bass is not room shakin it won't even shake the tv stand it's on but it certainly adds to its lovely overall sound. I then added a minx x301 sub, which took it to another level, it really does sound superb, with the sub dealing with the base it allowed the media 4 to sing. Even my wife commented how good the sound was, which is very unusual !! Very happy with the media 4 but if your looking at buying it, I really would suggest adding a sub if you want a little room rumble when watching movies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than most ! After selling all my top end amplifier and surround set up I was at a loss - tried this in store and it sounded good. Set up was 5 mins if that , and whilst it is never going to replace dedicated amp and speakers the convenience and sound are spot on - recommended
