Q Acoustics Media 4 sound bar: new product; new award

Q Acoustics Media 4 sound bar


Q Acoustics has created a solid reputation by producing class-leading budget speakers. The Q Series is making waves with its great-value, attractive and great-sounding speakers. The British brand is now demonstrating its versatility and expertise by also setting the standard for affordable sound bars.

Just like its more conventional siblings, the Q Acoustics Media 4 sound bar (also known as the M4) has picked up a trophy at the recent What Hi-Fi awards. The £329.95 sound bar is a great choice for enhancing both sound quality and playback options without the bulk and cabling required by a separates amplifier and speakers.

The M4 disperses sound across a wide area, ensuring everyone in the lounge benefits from its output. Given the spread of sound, the compact size of the unit is surprising. The metre-wide sound bar contains two drivers (each powered by a 25-watt amplifier) and a 50-watt subwoofer in a chassis that's just 90mm tall and (at its deepest point) 142mm deep.

In the unlikely event that the built-in subwoofer isn't powerful enough, the Media 4 can connect to a different one via its sub out connection. Input options are standard phono connections, a 3.5mm jack socket and an optical input. Q Acoustics is generous with the supplied accessories; cables for all three types of input are included (each being two metres in length). Also included are anti-vibration feet (if the bar is to sit on a shelf) and a wall-mounting plate.

Some listening options don't require a physical connection; aptX Bluetooth functionality allows wireless streaming from a mobile device.

Also included is a remote control but controllers supplied with Sky and Virgin Media set-top boxes will also control the M4.

With its sound, looks and price, the Q Acoustics Media 4 sound bar has earned another award for Q Acoustics' bulging trophy cabinet. It's the perfect choice for a budget sound bar and is in stock at Hi-Fi Stereo.
