Quote: 'Q's M2 sounds as good as or even marginally better than the Orbitsound. I had previously tried Q's M4 soundbar, which serious audio nuts have been loving since 2014. The M2 offers the same quality, but is much more compact. It has crisp, punchy sound, where some soundbars are just ponderous and bass-y...It also offers aptX Bluetooth, so you can put its talents to work as a mini sound system too.'

Financial Times 'How To Spend It' website attracts 937k total visits a month.
