Got a sony sony kdl-40w605 40′ tv and as nice as it was. I recently got a sony sony kdl-40w605 40′ tv and as nice as it was, the sound lacked definition and punch. I had a look at (reviews) and listened to a lot of soundbars, both cheaper and more expensive, but ended up buying the m4 as the clear winner for quality/value for money. I use the term value sparringly, the bar costs as much as the tv itself. But i chose the tv because of size constraints and wasn’t going to compromise on sound. Really glad i got the m4, it delivered in a massive way. It sounds superb as soon as you crank it up slightly, making speech, effects and music utterly superb. There is little you can do to describe a sound in writing. I wish i could, because i can’t think of praise high enough. If it’s in your budget, do yourself a favour and check it out.

After many years of large boxes and trailing wires decided to end the love affair with surround sound. Did some research and saw this nearly new media 4 on amazon. I have not been disappointed, connected to a sub woofer it fills the room with great sound, okay not on the same level as a decent surround sound but it just sits there with the minimum of fuss, no wires to speak off and connects really easy via bluetooth or optical, should of done it sooner, highly recommended.

No frills but all sound and substance where it’s needed. Excellent build quality and very good sound quality , remote control is proper pants and i have no idea how to program it with my youview box and it doesn’t have that many inputs, putting all that aside it does what it’s supposed to extremely well , it will upgrade the sound on your flatscreen tv by 1000% for movies and music just as well, it’s clear and baddy when it needs to be , the one thing i was concerned about and i procrastinated on buying a sound bar was because i didn’t want to get a cheap on that sounds tinny and whinny. I’m glad i did my research and waited a while now this one for its price kicks the crap out of anything in its price point for sound quality , you would think that though, considering it’s made by a hi end british speaker manufacturer.

Great product, well built easy to use. . Excellent sound bar easy to setup with great ability to fill a room with exceptional sound. Within 15 mins i had it unpackaged playing songs off my phone via bluetooth. Digitally attached to my tv and used the other ports to connect to my logitech squeezebox touch to become a wifi music player.

Excellent sound quality and value for money. This is a remarkable bit of kit. After moving to a house with a smaller lounge, the separates hi-fi i was using before just wouldn’t fit, so the hunt was on for another solution that still ticked the “audiophile” boxes for me. After a disappointing and short experience with a samsung sound bar it was clear that upping the budget was a must. Given the size constraints the sound quality is very impressive. It’s got a big hearted, natural sound that fills the room well with a surprisingly generous but taut low end, while the midrange does a great job handling both tv vocals with genuine musical talent. It doesn’t have the fancy sound modes of the samsung, but it doesn’t need it; instead it concentrates more on being the best speaker it can be. It resists distortion even at higher volumes and always sounds well balanced, avoiding the thick midrange and “boom ‘n’ tizz” i’ve heard from other manufacturers. While this means it doesn’t have an instant wow factor, it’s got a far more liveable and even tone which in my opinion is infinitely preferable in day to day use. It’s a sound bar made by a speaker manufacturer, not by a jack-of-all-trades electronics company selling complimentary products alongside their tvs – and it shows.

Excellent for the money but with one caveat. This is a good soundbar that has justifiably received awards. It arrived the day after i ordered it. The packing was extremely good with an external box and a superb internal box plus polystyrene protection. I wanted to mount the soundbar on the wall. I was pleased to find that thought had been put into the manufacture of the mounting plate in that there are oblong holes to enable precise adjustment to make the plate level. Then it was merely a case of putting the bar on the plate, after having connected the mains lead and the optical cable. Both cables are about two metres long. I powered it up and turned on the tv and it worked, delivering superior sound to that which i have been used to. It should be noted that its maximum volume may be insufficient for a large room, or the very hard of hearing as it is by no means deafening.

Brilliant – good sound reproduction and doesn’t interfere with your sound with unwanted bells and whistles. Just installed this little sound bar this evening and am very impressed. I’m running it from a samsung tv using the digital out. The sound mode is completely unprocessed apart from selecting samsung’s “speech enhancement” mode on the tv, which adjusts the eq to increase mid-frequencies (i. Speech) a couple of db to aid speech intelligibility when the tv/film producer thinks the crashes and bangs are more important than hearing dialogue. My main reason for buying this was that my beloved amp and speaker setup was having issues with the highly compressed audio from apps like netflix and 4od; netflix, which uses the audio equivalent of hdr to make loud sections louder and quiet sections quieter, was driving me mad because the loud bits would be so loud the neighbours would be at my door with pitchforks; and 4od, because they – like most ad-carrying channels – ramp up the average volume by a good percentage during adverts, which means i would be constantly riding the volume control again so as to avoid letting the neighbours know that the new nissan qashquai has superb seating arrangements or whatever the heck the advertisers want me to buy this bloomin’ week. Anyway, this soundbar is good because:- it doesn’t interfere with the signal by trying to “process” the audio (i. It doesn’t try to make a silk purse out of a pig’s backside in terms of audio quality)- it doesn’t have a gazillion audio modes, all of which are veeeery slightly different from each other, but none of which sound particularly impressive- the frequency response from the speakers is appreciably consistent from bottom to top, dependent a little on your positioning and the room’s acoustics of course- and, as a one-time sound engineer, this kit feels, looks and sounds like kind of sound bar that a concert pa sound system creator such as d&b audio teknik would have built if they wanted a very rugged, compact and faithful sound bar setup for their home tv when they weren’t rigging up sound systems for big concerts.

From the amazingly simple setup (about 10 minutes) to the clarity and depth of the stereo sound image, this well-built soundbar ticks all the boxes. I replaced a rather ancient yamaha first generation sound projector, which claimed to offer virtual surround sound with the acoustic m4. It makes a huge difference to the quality and works well with the toslink input from my tv and bluray player. Clearly a product from an accomplished audio company, this soundbar fills my room with glorious full-bodied sound. Forget the claims made by pseudo surround sound from the likes of yamaha. A better remote control would be an improvement, but once you have determined the optimum setting for your sound source, it works well with no complications. Highly recommended at a reasonable price level for such remarkable audio qualities.

Do not expect 2-way hi-definition audio here but as a step up from your tv sound is big, tuneful and bassy but has to be cranked up to sound the best. Pricey but you will not go back to basic tv sound after getting used to this bar. Downside is you get a cheap remote with large volume inclinations which is irritating.

I am hard of hearing and a hearing aid user for both ears. Purchased sound bar after my wife passed away and now living alone which means i can turn up the volume and rest my ears from my hearing aids.

One of my best purchases, ever. It’s one of my best purchases. I have hooked it up with a mission sub for that extra floor shake when watching action movies, but to be honest you don’t need it for general music/movie sound. 1 audio system and have absolutely no regret. The bluetooth connectivity is really useful too. Just wish it had one hdmi port. The m3 does but its sound is not as good.

Simple to use and set up, sounds great. Have a medium sized front room and fills with great quality sound. Only moan would be plasticy remote but as links to sky remote no probs. It is large at 1metre so may be tricky on some tv stands but also comes with wall mount so again, no worries.

With having owned q acoustics speakers in the past and not having room for a full surround system it seemed the obvious choice to go for this, to cut to the chase i’m definitely not disappointed, even the dreaded soaps sound good, films are where it shines though, good solid bass with the same being said for the rest of the sound spectrum, i think the mids are where it wins, vocals are so clear you can actually hear what people are saying, which is a problem with other bars and bases i’ve tried, i can see why its won so many awards.

Its ok sounds reasonable, not mind blowing, looks ugly. Read many reviews, so maybe i expected much more, if this was £200 i may have kept it.

We had an lg sounder with our lg 55″ tv. We had hoped it would enhance the speech, which was often muffled and necessitated use of subtitles. We decided to find a better sound bar, and after looking through loads of different ones, the q acoustics media 4 stood out as best value for money. Easy to set up, no fiddling with different settings, as this one doesn’t need that, as the sound is excellent. Integrated sub-woofer means no extra large box to find room for, and the base is very good. From the start sound is crisp and speech much easier to hear, with some sounds never heard before. Bluetooth from iphone easy to set up and music sounds really good. Best thing we could have done.
