Q Acoustics Media 4

 

Q Acoustics' Media 4 is one of the best sub-£400 soundbars on the market

Potent, vigorous sound with excellent composure ; Hard-hitting, natural bass ; Solid build quality

No HDMI sockets ; Ungainly design ; Cheap remote

Its powerful, cohesive sound makes Q Acoustics’ Media 4 soundbar a must-buy at this price – just don’t expect HDMI ports or surround processing.

Q Acoustics M4 review: An excellent soundbar that's great value for money

 

The Q Acoustics M4 is great value where it comes to sound quality even if it's not the most stylish soundbar

Easy setup ; Excellent sound quality

Bulky design ; Cheap-feeling remote control

It’s not the most attractive-looking soundbar available and its remote control, in particular, feels a little cheap, but it’s great value overall in terms of audio performance from a traditional soundbar. For a little more money you can get a slightly...

Q Acoustics Media 4 review

 

Sound bars without separate subwoofers are one of the hottest trends in home cinema right now. In the past six months alone, we have seen units from Samsung , Bluesound, Bose and Paradigm , in addition to newcomer Q Acoustics. All of these kinds of...

The Q Acoustics Media 4 sound bar offers sophisticated home theater sound in a single speaker, without a subwoofer. It's easy to set up and use, and sounds decent with both movies and music. It's more dynamic sounding than our favorite one-box sound...

It can't match the dynamics of sound bars with dedicated subs. The Zvox has better bass and more natural dialogue.

The Q Acoustics Media 4’s minimalist features set, built-in subwoofer, and fuss-free sound make for an attractive alternative to bulkier sound bar systems.

AVTech Awards 2014/2015

Q Acoustics Media 4

 

Very high audio quality - almost as good as a good budget stereo system. Certainly plenty loud enough. The remote is a little fiddly to use and it would be good to have some sort of indication as to what volume level it is set at.

Great value

 

Really gives films and tv programmes sound great depth and that cinema rumble of base, clear as a bell for everything else, I'm no expert but for the money very good.
