Our M4 soundbar is a high-performance active speaker designed to deliver high fidelity music and high-quality audio from a TV, set top box, tablet or smartphone. With Bluetooth technology, you can wirelessly stream your music from a phone or via services such as Spotify or Apple Music.
It features advanced BMR (balanced mode radiator) speaker drive units that produce exceptionally wide sound dispersion. This creates clear, room filling sound so that everyone can enjoy the same outstanding sound quality wherever they are in the listening room. So, whether you’re listening to music or watching movies, the M4 will play both with equal accomplishment.
The M4’s digital optical and analogue inputs allow it to connect to a wide range of entertainment sources, including your TV, Sky or Virgin box, CD, DVD or Blu-Ray plater, smartphone, tablet, portable music player, computer or internet radio. With Bluetooth connectivity (using aptX lossless for audio streaming), the wireless connection can sync to almost any Bluetooth compatible audio device and remember up to eight pairings.
The M4’s slim design and built-in subwoofer overcomes the need for a separate subwoofer box and extra cables. When wall mounted, the distinctive flared shape of the M4 allows sufficient clearance behind the unit for the cable entry.
Ease to Use
We’ve made the M4 ridiculously easy to use. Simply plug it in, connect to the source and it’s ready to go! It comes with a small five button IR remote control, but it can also be controlled by other remote controls for ultimate flexibility. The M4 also has a standby mode, which is automatically activated after 20 minutes of inactivity, so you don’t have to worry about turning it off after every use.

Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
- The sound quality is great and is as expected based on the reviews.
- The integrated subwoofer is just what I liked. Its got just enough punch for movies but doesn't affect voices too much. Too often I find external subwoofers annoyingly bassy.
- The size is great. I have it on a shelf below the TV which is hanging on a wall and it fills the space perfectly. I would probably look at a thinner unit though if it had to be hung on a wall as it would stick out somewhat far due to the subwoofer enclosure.
- The bluetooth feature to play it remotely is very cool, useful and easy to use.
- Setup was easy (except for the hour I spent trying to figure out why digital audio wasn't working)
- The digital optical connection requires a specific setting (that isn't listed in product specs) that doesn't exist on my tv so I was forced to use analog audio cables. To me this was a big compromise.
- Unfortunately the analog audio disables the auto on feature of the unit so I have to manually turn it on every time which is annoying.
- There are no controls for the sound, zero so if you want bass or treble adjustments you are out of luck.
- The bluetooth while easy to use and useful at the same time can be annoying. For example when checking a voicemail with bluetooth on it turns the tv off and switches to bluetooth by priority. So I have to turn bluetooth off on my phone.
- There needs to be more steps between volumes. There are no visual representations any more of what the audio is set to (like a tv that displays bars or numbers). We have it at one volume and its too soft and the next volume increase is too loud. It needs a couple in between steps and this should have been easy to do.
- I would have liked equalization for the price. Some more basic units can regulate the audio between shows and commercials.
So overall a great sounding unit that I wish had a few more capabilities and addressed some product design hiccups.
A-It's easy to hook up and is a no nonsense speaker that increases the quality over the standard speakers in most TV's by a factor of at least ten. No it's no high end unit but it's well worth the asking price.
B-I have a word for an outfit that pinches pennies and includes a wall mount with NO HARDWARE. So a ten mile drive to Lowes and a sales guy running back and forth to match up screws and anchors to install. The pox on this manufacturer.

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.
I have read criticism that there is no way of adjusting lip synch but that was not a problem for me. It seemed to be right with no noticeable delay.
My only gripe is the poor remote control. It is very small (4cm x 8.5cm x 0.7cm) and as a consequence could easily get lost down the side of the sofa or thrown out with the newspapers. Something meatier is required and hopefully with more controls than just on/off, volume, source and mute. A much cheaper Samsung soundbar I own meets these requirements, so why not this one?
I investigated using a One For All remote control instead of the supplied device. I looked on OFA's website for the code but Q Acoustics' soundbars were not listed. I contacted QA support and it was suggested that a Philips code may do the trick. After a bit of fiddling with my OFA (model 7980) I found that code 0641 worked. QA told me that they are in touch with OFA with a view to getting their products listed.
Where it matters the QM4 excels and the rest is detail. If it fits your requirements for TV-sourced sound and as an unobtrusive and essentially zero-cost add-on BT stereo system then it is highly recommended.
Important to realise this doesn’t have ANY sound modes, it’s just one universal mode. Yet another reason not to have a remote. You just need volume.
I find my experience with the QM4 a bit mixed because I have no real problems with the product, it’s just a bit hit and miss as to when it blows your socks off. For £250 I wanted that sensation at all times but I don’t get it.
You do have to turn the volume up to get the best out of it, and the sounds of bullets etc are very punchy and powerful to the point I get anxious about neighbours complaining, so I end up turning it back down!
I suppose the upshot is that surround sound NEEDS multiple speakers, and this device can never replace a proper 5 or 3 speaker set-up, no matter how many good reviews it gets.
Other than that, pleased, it connects very well with Bluetooth from my iPhone for music, and it IS bassy for a lounge speaker. You have to be living far away from neighbours to have something bassier than this, or just be a terrible person with no compassion for others.
For TV and movie viewing, dialogue is splendidly clear - I was very worried that the lack of a centre speaker would make dialogue trickier to discern on surround content, I'm pleased to say this isn't the case.
When watching a movie, the action sounds really sound amazing. The little built in sub does it's job admirably. It's not as loud or punchy as a floorstanding sub, but to be honest it's nice not to have the whole house shaking when watching TV and there's still the option to wire in an active sub should I miss the whole house vibrating every time we watch a film.
Like other reviewers mention, this really starts to sound amazing at volume. At low volumes dialogue is clear, but music feels lacking. At volume it sounds like a proper hifi setup.
The unit feels solid, looks like a serious bit of kit and the inclusion of a bracket and every cable you'd possibly want is outstanding. It's super simple to operate, you don't even need to turn it on/off if you're feeding it solely through the optical input, it will do that for you.
The remote control is junk, but there are clear instructions in the manual (downloadable from the website) to program it into both Sky & Virgin remotes. I've got it set into a logitech harmony.
Other reviewers mention lip sync issues, but this may be a problem with their TV's with an easy workaround. I had this problem on some Virgin channels and it seemed to be an issue with my TV converting Dolby digital from Virgin/HDMI to PCM over optical. Changing the virgin settings to send PCM fixed this immediately.
There are only two things I don't like about the unit:
1. If nothing is connected by bluetooth, the unit is permanently in pairing mode. This means any idiot outside your house could connect and start playing music without your permission. Ok, unlikely to happen, but still a risk, IMO.
2. If you connect a bluetooth device, if you start playing music/sounds, the input automatically changes to bluetooth. This is seriously annoying if you get notifications when your phone's paired and you're trying to watch something. My workaround is to unpair my phone entirely when not needed.
FWIW, bluetooth music playback is really good. But you do need to pump up the volume as mentioned above.
