The Q Acoustics Q-AV LCR65 sound bar will work with televisions with screen sizes between 50" and 65". If you don't want large speakers all around your living room but still want an immersing, high quality acoustic experience from your movies, then you should consider the innovative Q-AV system.

The LCR65 Soundbar is an innovative solution which sits below your television. It is wall mountable, has a bracket to adjust its distance from the wall and expands horizontally to match your television, up to 65" screen size. Also available are the Q-AV table-top stand, floor stand and cantilever wall-mounting bracket, which allow easy mounting of your flatscreen TV and the soundbar at the same time.

Also available at same price from Superfi through Amazon. Next cheapest I could find was £339.99

This is the LRC50 version, which is what I've got, and it's brilliant.

Why on earth does it matter what size your screen is???

From what I can make out this is just a speaker...it has no HDMI inputs and no built in amplifier and is best used with matching sub and surrounds which are extra! If this is true then it's pretty crap IMHO!

Yes, it is 3 front speakers that are meant to form part of a surround system and need an amp too, that doesn't make them child!
Definitely hot, pair with the qav rears and you have a girlfriend/ wife friendly 'invisible' surround system of fantastic quality.
Mine are set up with an onkyo sr608.

These are the matching rears. I posted months ago, I have two sets. I'm looking for an lcr 50.

The lcr50 will fit upto a fifty inch screen and the 65 a sixty five inch screen. They are three passive drivers on an adjustable rail and fit snugly under your screen.

It can be adjusted to fit perfectly under your TV. So, it doesn't look too small or too big.

Yes I think you are correct. It's a glorified centre speaker.
#12
It replaces your left, centre and right speakers hence LCR. Has three pairs of wires to it.
#13
127cm?

Damn, I need a wider TV (and stand)!
#14
So, this needs an amp? Can't just plug into TV?

really interested in getting a soundbar, just can't seem to find one that suits..

...so really, it's just a choice between seperate left, right and centre speakers or one of these...can't really see the point other than purely cosmetic. It's not a soundbar in the sense I'm familiar with...like the Yamaha's that take the place of ALL the 5 speakers AND the amplifier!!

...barely worth £99 IMHO!!
#16
Not a sound bar. Think of it as three separate speakers.

Same here i was semi interested until i checked against the stand, would look daft, shame the same offer isnt on the smaller model.

I've got the Aego M 2.1 sets which plug into the 3.5mm jack. I think they sound great - warm, rich, room filling sound.

Anyone who's familar with the Aego's would you say that this soundbar produces better, worse or similar sound quality?

Yes but with 1 connection to an amp. So you can only send centre channel signal to it. Surely this is a flawed item. It serves no purpose in a 5.1/7.1 system. The original price is just unbelievable. Even if the rear effects and sub were included in the original price, why would you want the system? If you have a 5.1 amp this speaker cluster does nothing. Most people struggle to set up their rear effects, not their front mains

This is a set of speakers, left center and right, " hidden " behind a single mesh, They need an amp to drive them , and for the money you can't get better, They even sound ok without a sub for nighttime viewing, I've got mine set up in a corner underneath the TV, the TV is 37" so there is some overlap to the sides, but it fits perfectly into my setup.

You can take them out of the substantial metal frame and remove the mesh cover so getting three seperate speakers, but they aint the prettiest, partially to do with the funky hidden wiring solution, but mainly because they use a combination of nxt and traditional speaker drivers, so they look strange and would also need some bespoke mounting work.

To conclude, they sound great and are somewhat wife friendly and are an absolute bargain for a hundred quid.

The lcr50 which are the same speakers but with a smaller frame are available from currys for £150.

You sure it doesn't have 3 inputs?

Also if you don't have a cabinet underneath your TV to house the centre, this isn't a bad price for a shallow wall mounted center speaker. I was looking for a few not too long ago and they seem to be relatively niche product unfortunately.

3 inputs. This is a 3 channel 3 speaker set up.

Where did you get that it has one connection to the amp?
banned#25
Sorry guys my mistake.

If this is 3 channel input then I can sort of begin to understand it's usage. However why anyone would want their front mains under their TV is beyond me. Most of these sound bars are designed to offer a pseudo surround sound effect. However if you are going to run this through a non dedicated amp I would imagine the results would be pretty mediocre.

I'm not bashing the find, and it is clear that I am struggling to understand who this product is aimed at. This is also offered in a package with rear effects and a sub woofer. I can't imagine how anyone would struggle to place their front mains, but be ok with their rear effects.

It is aimed at people who bought a fancy amp, then picked up a speaker catalogue only to be told "you're not having those in my living room with wires all over the place and crap" by their significant other.
That's what happened to me, except I bought some q acoustics 2020s anyway.
#27
Got the 50'' version. So crisp off course requires a nice sub and good amp.

what other inputs are on this besides the wiring posts?
im trying to figure out if i could include this in my 5.1 setup. i only have 5 channels on my amp now but wondered if i could utilise this in another manner?

If you have a 5.1 amp then truly you will not get the best you could from this. It's very simple really. You can play around with reduction/increase in channel settings etc to your hearts content.

You need a centre channel, main fronts, rear effects (front effects for 7.1), and a sub woofer.

It seems this acts as front main/centre. It's a 2.1 system on it's own, and for £99.00 thats where it should stop. The problem then is that if you have a 5.1 amp you can do so much better than this. Do 2.1 amps exist?

IMHO the moment you want to introduce it into a 5.1 system then just get seperate front mains/centre, rears and sub. (unless of course you need to keep your better half happy).


You can only do so much with a speaker set under a TV trying to handle front main input. Front main input is a key part of audio content on a blu ray/dvd

You could use it in one of two ways:

1) Replace your centre and two fronts. All three wires from them go into this.

2) Use it to replace your centre only. Only the wire from your centre goes into this, the fronts stay as they are. (In this scenario your wouldn't be using two of the speakers in this bar).

While it won't be as good as having sperate fronts and centre, it is better then having none at all. Moreover, IMO its the rear effects that sound bars struggle with the most.

Its a balance between performance and aesthetics and should be seen as such. I myself have a situation where I'm tempted by this. As the fronts stick out like a sore thumb and the centre is currently housed in a cabinet which I want to get rid off (TV is wall mounted). The rears on the other hand are partially covered by the sofa and ofcourse can't be seen when your sitting down (unless you have eyes in the back of your head :)).

i have some towers for the fronts, i was thinking if i could utilise for dolby pro logic IIz somehow?

Does your AMP support it? I know it adds front heaight speakers for stuff like rain, which it picks out from the standard track and sends to the height speakers. But assume you'd need seperate channels to connect the front height speakers to? Also I doubt it would be a good idea to restrict the position of two of your fronts by having them in an LCR if that level of sound reproduction is important to you.
#35
yeh my amp supports it, could i bi wire from my current towers (they have this facility)

You might want to try posting the question on somewhere like avforums. As I wouldn't want to say go ahead buy it without being sure it will do what you want. I do have reservations that a fixed LCR will be the best addition for your system though.

Well I would much rather have this. It's proven, balanced, and I can't beileve it would be too difficult to integrate into a home
Tannoy SFX5.1

I have voted hot on this item as it is vastly reduced. However I think that £100 for a 3speaker sound bar with no amp is not particularly good value for money.
