Award-winning Q-Acoustics sound in a more compact and convenient casing - the M3 by Q-Acoustics is a tough act to beat.

BMR speakers for a powerful and spacious sound

Just like its bigger brothers, the M3 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 sound.

Built-in subwoofer
Rather than using a separate subwoofer, the M3 has the subwoofer in the main casing. This makes for a neater design and less wiring. Using a dedicated 150mm x 120mm drive unit, plus its own amplifier, the M3 has little trouble in reproducing deep, powerful movie soundtracks.

Switchable EQ for the best sound - wherever you put it
Soundbars are supposed to be convenient and, thanks to its switchable EQ, the M3 is even more so than usual. Whether you put the soundbar on a shelf, in a cabinet or on the wall, there's an EQ setting to suit. These means that you get a spacious, balanced sound wherever you decide you want the soundbar to be.

Bluetooth music streaming
As well as making your TV sound great, the M3 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.

HDMI with ARC and other great connectivity for system flexibility
With HDMI connectivity you can link up the M3 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.

Take your TV sound to another level and get a compact music speaker into the bargain, with the flexible Q-Acoustics M3.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound but bass could be better. Bought the Q Acoustics M3 after reading several reviews. The sound is very good particularly with films and TV but would be better with a bit more bottom end and more ESQ control when playing music. Overall I'm happy with it however...certainly vastly improves the sound from the TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good service as always from RS Have owned M3 sound bar for three week and am very pleased with the upgrade it gives the sound. Unit arrived with a faulty remote control, but one brief phone call to RS and a replacement was sent out no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great price! After reading hundreds of reviews of sound bars, I saw one that said that this one is the best! Not the best at everything, but best for simplicity and sound for the cost. It’s simple, only a couple of buttons, but the sound quality of movies and music is excellent! I am very happy, just what I wanted! I will get another one soon for other room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the money, best out there For the money, this is the best sound bar out there competitions with the luxury ones. Read it was bass heavy but for me it’s perfect, this matched with my OLED makes my movie nights unreal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very pleased Did a bit of research, this kept coming up as the one to get. Very pleased. Had to be creative with set up as it only comes with HDMI port and my TV only had one output which was already taken up, but I was abe to make it work. Looks and sounds really good. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good compromise between music and tv sound needed to have just one good speaker instead of many for both TV and music - the fact that this takes sources from line in / optical / bluetooth makes it easily compatible with existing TV etc. the only minor issue is to get it under the TV we needed to remove th bracket and the power/source button is then hidden. would be nice to actually indicate the current volume / source on the remote also
