The Q Acoustics Media 4 (M4) is a high performance soundbar, designed to offer the best quality and highest fidelity audio with both music and when used with a TV or set top box, tablet or smartphone.
Most Soundbars are designed for use with movies and TV, and will not perform as well with music. The Media 4 sound bar is very much a 'hi-fi soundbar' designed to play music and movies with equal accomplishment. The Q Acoustics M4 uses 'BMR' driver units which create a clear and expansive soundscape. The internal high performance subwoofer is acoustically-matched and delivers real, rich bass. The M4 will give a much greater cinema audio experience than just using a TVs speakers alone.
The Media 4 offers both analogue and optical inputs, allowing it to be used with a range of other entertainment sources including streaming services such as Spotify, CD players, computers and internet radio.
The Media 4 also features wireless functionality thanks to aptX lossless Bluetooth audio streaming. This makes sharing your music in CD quality easier than ever. Up to eight pairings can be remembered, allowing for friends or family to get connected in seconds.
The Media 4 stands aout from the competition due to its internal subwoofer, where many other soundbars have a separate standalone sub. With less cables to contend with, the Media 4 is therefore much easier to accomodate compared to many other soundbars available, as the Media 4 maintains its slim design. The M4 is an ideal discreet one-box solution.
The Q Acoustics Media 4 uses BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) drive units which provide outstanding sonic performance dispersed over an exceptionally wide area. This ensures that regardless of where you sit in your room you will still enjoy a full hi-fi or home cinema experience. Q Acoustics provide true natural audio without added effects or digital signal processing. This gives you the peace of mind of listening to the pure audio intended by the original mix engineer.
Ease of Use
The Media 4 soundbar could not be simpler and easier to use. Simply plug it in, connect your source and your M4 is ready to use. A compact 5 button remote is included, however the soundbar has been designed to allow you to use your TV box remote to control it. This means there are less remotes to worry about, which is ideal considering the Media 4 looks to save space by incorporating a full range system in a single unit. The M4 will automatically go into standby when unused for 20 minutes, ensuring you don't have to worry about switching it on and off when not in use.
TV and Movies
When you think of a soundbar you generally think it is used for your television. The Media 4 soundbar is perfect whether you just want to enhance your normal TV sound for the programmes that you love watching, or whether you want to feel like you’re in the movie that you are watching. It brings a new life to your TV and movie watching experience, one that you will wonder how you ever lived without it before.
Enjoy your Music
There are simply so many ways in which you can enjoy your music on the new Q M4 soundbar. Whether you plug your CD player in, or use the NFC Bluetooth technology to wirelessly stream to it, you can listen to your music in true high-quality sound. Great for when you’re entertaining, to simply streaming straight from your Spotify account on your own, you will love listening to every moment of it.
Connect the Q M4 soundbar up with your console to truly enhance your experience of gaming. Whether you are playing online, with a friend, or simply on your own, when connected to the soundbar you will almost feel like you are in the game itself. The soundbar can be connected up with the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and other consoles so you can truly have the best experience possible.
'Best soundbar under £500' (What Hi-Fi Magazine 2016)
'It's sensibly priced and sounds fantastic, so we would happily part with our hard-earned cash. A great unit for the price... even in the midst of all that on-screen action, the Media 4 keeps its composure. Highs don't sound aggressive and dialogue doesn't struggle, but instead manages to come across clearly' (What Hi-Fi? Magazine)
'There's a decent level of detail in the track and the soundbar's powerful and agile bass keeps the music bouncing along. Turn up the volume and the soundbar doesn't flinch at the challenge, and at low levels there's no shortage of detail or dynamics' (What Hi-Fi? Magazine)
'It's a huge step up from conventional flatscreen sound, bringing the full-bodied, nicely rounded character we've come to expect from the company's stereo speakers into a soundbar setting' (What Hi-Fi? Magazine)
‘surfing the £400 price-point there are very few – if any – that can match the sound quality on offer from the M4. Highly Recommended.’ (AV Forums)
