"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 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 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 .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great value. This is a great sound bar i would definitely recommend this product and i got it a bit cheaper to happy days,setting this sound bar up is simplicity itself when i got home the kids were watching Monsters Inc when i`d finished installing the Media 4 and switched it on they thought they were in the cinema.This is a massive step up from the tinny speakers you get in your TV your viewing experience is taken to another level,thanks Richer sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has a quality build, especially at that price Excellent product , well recommended by What Hi-Fi, sound quality is exceptional, easy to set up and link to the TV. At this price it is unbeatable. Superb and very helpful service from Richer Sounds in Norwich. In short a quality product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice deign, great clarity for vocals, precise and musical but not much bass This is a quality piece of AV kit which will be a superb upgrade to the sound of most TVs. It is very clear and dynamic, adding drama to movies and making soundtracks compelling. Watching a concert or music documentary just takes the experience to another level really. It's also good for general music listening, although it can't do really low bass - not really the fault of the unit as it can't bend the laws of physics and you can't get a lot of low end out of something this discrete. However, having tried it with an external sub woofer I can confirm that it's capable of doing that too, for a couple of hundred quid extra spend, speak to the helpful folks at Richer Sounds if you want to hear this kind of setup. Drawbacks? Well, it doesn't have HDMI connections, its a tad too tall for a 40" Samsung - obscures the bottom of the screen - but this can be sorted with a bit of creative problem solving! Overall, happy to recommend. Got mine open box too so most accessories missing but cheap!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound and Value I was lucky to pay £249, for the Q Acoustic M4 and what value. The build quality is great, although I would say the design, may put some people off.However don't let this put you off, sound quality is fantastic, movies,spotify all sound fantastic. Only one minor fault, cheap remote

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product is average Great service as always from Richer Sounds, I was hoping to unlock some fantastic sound from the TV, but was disappointed by this unit. The Arcam solo bar was a step up, but still didn't cut it. Finally decided on £40 dac into the Cyrus amp and I couldn't be happier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but more help needed Product is very easy to connect BUT there is simply not enough help to replace the functions of the remote control with the TV. The unit indicates that this should be done but provides minimum assistance as to how to do it - and that's very poor in my book. Spent a couple of frustrating days searching but got no where

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Had it a year, now, and it produces nice sound. It has worked well, without fault, since purchased a year ago. I almost destroyed the plug-in socket by not removing the tiny clear plastic cover on the pin. (Not an issue to those familiar with this jack and socket type). The sound is clearly superior to the TV speakers, but to get the best out of the sound bar you really have to turn up the volume to a point where it is a bit too loud. Still, the sound is good at normal volumes. Overall: a good product, if a bit bulky. I can recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplicity Defined Love this sound bar because it does what you want it to - no more, no less! The sound is awesome - just try watching the BBC's Planet Earth 2 with this! It brings out sounds that simply were not there with the TV speakers. I was worried that it would lack that bass umphh due to the low profile design and was considering getting a subwoofer too, however there is absolutely no need in my opinion. My only minor gripe is I can't get the Virgin Media remote to control volume despite following instructions. So I will have to keep using the supplied remote which is easy to lose down the sofa! I would also add that the volume control at lower volumes is not that sensitive. There seem to be quite large jumps in volume despite only going one click up or down on the supplied remote. However, for quality of sound and unobtrusive design I will live with these small inconveniences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Q Acoustics Media 4 early xmas present I spent an inordinate amount of time researching a sound bar and this is a very nice piece of kit, and the sound is excellent, but it wouldn't work on Amazon Prime and NetFlix,, the idiot guide is 3 pages of pictures, ok for straightforward installation, but a proper one may just help us who aren't so technically gifted, having said that and consulting my son the next day, we eventually figured out which LG sound setting in the advanced TV sound menu to use, now my wife and I think the sound and depth is wonderful and perfect for us, no fiddling with copious settings, although to him it needs a bass box the size of a small car ( not happening!) I'd certainly highly recommend this to anyone, but without boring them silly on how good it really is

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for tv sound playback but can't handle loud hifi music 10 out of 10 for sound quality playing back YouTube Netflix etc. Worth every penny! But when playing back dance music with a strong beat through Bluetooth the left speaker badly rattles and vibrates causing you to turn it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hi Quality Buil and sound.. I spent a lot of time researching sound bars and this Q Acoustics Media 4 is very good indeed. No fancy frills and no sound 'enhancement's' just does the job very well. Having Bluetooth is a real benefit when music or radio from phone or tablet is needed with no TV on - I like it a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound bar I have a q acoustics tv2 and have been waiting for the price to drop on the media 4, very good all rounder and at 249 fantastic value. My wife loves the clear dialogue on normal TV, I love the great sound on films. Great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Q M4. Does the job very well. I am no stranger to decent hifi and have a pair of QA speakers also. This bar is very good with movies, and music via Bluetooth. You can buy a basic hifi system for the same price, and have the TV connected to the amp. This all in one unit sounds nearly as good as a system, but takes up a smaller space. The bass that eminates from this thin unit is amazing, and the treble is crisp and clear. I've had this nine months now and it sounds even better with age, as all speakers take a few months to run in. It is also wall mountable if you wish, which is handy. It does sound better higher up though, around chest height when seated. This unit is pretty portable also, as it's light and thin, great if you holiday via car. So for around £300 I would say money well spent. My only complaint is the remote control, as it's very small and light. I don't often use the remote, so not really that bothered. Looks like they have sacrificed it for better driver and components, which makes sense to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value product great addition to our tv viewing this is a quality product at a very good price, set up was a dawdle and it integrated with our Panasonic tv effortlessly. Delivery was very quick so all in all highly recommended both the product and the vendor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply awesome The reviews I read about this kit were absolutely spot on. Best Buy in What Hifi, highly recommended in AV forum. This is an impressive bit of kit! Rich sound, it is beautifully balanced so nothing that you hear overwhelms anything else. Dialogue is crystal clear, music richly toned without being too bassey. There is plenty of umph if you need it. Very simple to set up. Whilst the remote is small, it's operation is straight forward. You can add a subwoofer if you wanted to, but to be honest in a typical living room there is no need to. If you are looking for a sound bar that does it all And don't want to spend a fortune I would seriously recommend this on. A perfect companion for my Panasonic tv. It will look good with a 40 to 50" tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Very happy with the sound bar, especially for the reduced price of £249. My only problems are that the volume adjust means is either very quiet or loud, nothing in-between and would benefit from more adjustment settings. Also the remote is a little naff but my virgin remote controls it so problem solved there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of sound for your money I have been looking for a while for a sound bar to enhance the sound on my TV which is a bit tinny. I was looking up to £250 and read review after review of sound bars which either broke down regularly or did not really deliver what they said, then along came the Q Acoustics M4. As it was over my range I decided to call into my local Richer Sounds in MK to have a listen. As usual the staff were really friendly and soon rigged up a M4 for me to hear, well I must say even if this sound bar would have been £150 over my budget I would have saved the rest as the difference in quality for another £50 was immense. Cannot fault it, simple and I mean simple set up, great base, smooth mid range and crisp hi end, unit is a little bulky if I am being brutal, but bang for bucks this has got to be the best in show. You should buy one now.
Date published: 2016-08-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective I wanted something that sounded better than the tv and doesn't have loads of cables or take up too much room. I like the simplicity of it not having a multitude of sound modes, so the control just has: volume, tv or Bluetooth mode, mute, power on/off. Simple. The sound is far better than I hoped and it's good listening to music on You Tube on my iPad.
