About the Product
The M3 is simplicity redefined; beautifully engineered sound meets beautifully designed engineering. A more compact soundbar than its big brothers, the M4 and M4i.
Using twin 65mm BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) drive units, the Media 4 gives pinpoint accuracy and is bursting with detail right up to high volume levels. BMR technology combines the advantages of both flat panel and conventional speakers.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Q Acoustics M3 Soundbar with Built-in Subwoofer – Black
  • Samsung was just ok. But wow, Q3 has proved itself to be the top of class. I have had it for about 6 months and I can say that this soundbar excels in delivering powerful music or cinematic experience.
  • Fantastic..sounds brilliant, makes films come to life, I can finally hear everything on the TV, not just bits.
  • Very good quality. Good bass, without being overpowering. Works well with films, and tv shows. Able to hear the voices well, which has been a problem with some previous sound bars
  • Nice sound bar and simple to use. Adds a deaper and richer sound quality to the TV which the built in speakers would not be able to achieve.
  • Just bought a new tv and decided to go the whole hog and get a sound bar, brings programmes to life, didn’t think it would be so different from the sound just coming from the tv. Very impressed
Q Acoustics M4 Soundbar with Built In Subwoofer - Black
  • I powered it up and turned on the TV and it worked, delivering superior sound to that which I have been used to.
  • The mid-range is clear and distortion-free and the bass lithe and extends 'low enough'.
  • This soundbar was my choice as it had 100watts output and a choice of source inputs.
  • 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
  • I like the sound quality, it has a decent sound to the bass which really brings my TV audio output to life

Q Acoustics M3 Soundbar with Built-in Subwoofer – Black
  • We keep it in the middle shelf on our tv table and the speaker is solid built and doesnt rumble the glass and vibrate
  • I would recommend this to anyone who wants a really top quality soundbar
  • Value for money, quality product and nicely packaged
  • Excellent quality at a great price. You think you are at the movies using it.
  • Incredible build quality and the sound is on another level than my previous Vizio sound bar. This is a perfect all in one solution.
Q Acoustics M4 Soundbar with Built In Subwoofer - Black
  • It looks great. It's a large unit so measure up before you buy.
  • The unit is well made. It was easy to set up. Supplied with all types of connecting cables.
  • The shelves on the Ricco stand is too small to fit any decently sized soundbar, but with this mount it hangs perfectly from down below the tv and puts it in perfect height.
  • Although slightly bigger than what I was expecting and my old sound bar, it's a fabulous piece of kit.
  • Out of the box it looks sturdy, well built and sounds pretty good.

What customers say about "Features"
Q Acoustics M3 Soundbar with Built-in Subwoofer – Black
  • The remote control is very small but we rarely use it and just use the firetv remote to switch the tv and soundbar on.
  • No problems putting on wall either, just two screws.
  • Works fine so far,sound can be controlled by both my sky and tv remotes.
  • Enhanced our joy of watching Netflix and other films on freeview as against the poor quality speakers from our Sony TV . Should have made the purchase sooner.
  • Easy to set up, TV finally sounds clear. Linked to Alexa easily enough. Would recommend.
Q Acoustics M4 Soundbar with Built In Subwoofer - Black
  • Literally ten minutes to set it up, very easy to use (using Sky remote).
  • Great sound that fills the room. Got this to replace a 5.1 surround sound set up with lots of cables. Don't miss the 5.1. Bass is decent for a unit without a separate bass speaker.
  • Great soundbar with built in sub woofer comes with rubber feet so mounting on glass tv stand was no problem
  • You must fit the supplied rubber feet if you're surface mounting it for maximum bass
  • Particularly impressed by music played using Bluetooth

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Q Acoustics M3 Soundbar with Built-in Subwoofer – Black
  • I use this with my samsung smart tv connected with ARC to Firetv stick.
  • Simple to set up, hdmi, then power and off you go.
  • Would recommend ARC so it can all be controlled via TV switching on/off and sound channelled from various EXT devices.
  • Easy to connect using 3.5mm jack. Nice sound.
  • Excellent value for money, pairs well with Samsung TV.
Q Acoustics M4 Soundbar with Built In Subwoofer - Black
  • It connects very well with Bluetooth from my iPhone for music, and it IS bassy for a lounge speaker.
  • I have not been disappointed, connected to a sub woofer it fills the room with great 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. Love it.
  • Being able to connect to devices using Bluetooth is excellent too.
