An outstanding soundbar with fantastic reviews. Yes it is a little old now, but these were going for £369 last week, then dropped to £269 (still at this price at John Lewis), and now available at Richer Sounds for £239.

"Sensibly priced and sounds fantastic, so we would happily part with our hard-earned cash. Its a great solution for the price." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2016

BMR for room-filling sound
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, so that the M4 is truly dynamic and won't turn harsh when the music or film action gets intense. Another advantage of BMR speakers is the superb spatial imaging - compared with conventional drive units, they provide a broad and spacious sound that comes right out 'into' the room.

Built-in subwoofer
Rather than using a separate subwoofer, the M4 has the subwoofer in the main casing. This makes for a neater overall package and less wiring. Using a dedicated 150mm x 120mm drive unit, plus its own 50W amplifier, the M4 has little trouble in reproducing deep, powerful movie soundtracks.

NFC and Bluetooth for music streaming
Using NFC or Bluetooth technology, you can connect up just about any smartphone, tablet or newer laptop, Mac or PC and stream your music. With compatible NFC devices, simply hold the unit next to the top of the soundbar and you're good to stream. With Bluetooth you pair your device with the soundbar. Once done, you'll be able to stream music from your stored library or from streaming music services such as Spotify or Last.fm.


There are no fancy "surround sound" profiles (which usually don't work very well anyway), and no HDMI pass through, but this is a cracking soundbar which focuses on delivery very good quality audio which fills the space, and is very detailed. Ordered!

That is a tidy piece of kit, good luck!

I'll keep one eye on prices for the M4 elsewhere and expect RS to price beat if I see it any cheaper!
