Prime Day hi-fi deals have been thin on the ground so far, but here's a real tempter: $100 off the five-star Q Acoustics M20 wireless speakers. The tasty discount drops the price from $599 to just $499 – a 17% reduction on the MSRP.
We are huge fans of the M20. Not only is it a neat, flexible stereo system, it features aptX HD Bluetooth onboard so you can wirelessly stream high-resolution audio (up to 24-bit/48kHz) from compatible devices.
The $100 discount applies to the gloss black finish only – which is fine with us, because it's stunning (insert chef's kiss here).

"An unfussy, just-add-source set of powered Bluetooth speakers that we find impossible to dislike," we concluded in our recent five-star review. And that was before Amazon slashed a hundred bucks off the price.
The M20 is a pair of powered speakers designed to work wherever you feel like putting them – perched on a bookshelf or speaker stands; fixed to the wall; flanking your computer screen or your TV. They also have a lot of useful connections on the back – TVs, CD players, turntables and laptops can also be wired to the M20 through optical, RCA line-level, aux and USB Type B connections, and there’s a subwoofer output if you want to add one to the set-up.
The design is typical of Q Acoustics – classy and minimalist. It’s not possible to remove the grilles, but if we could, we would see a two-way design with 125mm mid/bass driver and 22mm tweeter. The amplification, 130W in total, is squirrelled away in the master speaker, which also features a power button framed with an LED light.
Sonically, the M20 punches well above its weight, displaying a great sense of timing and enough oomph to fill larger rooms. The soundstage is expansive and all musical strands are held competently within a cohesive mix.
In short, the M20 is more likely to become your entire music system than it is simply your new desktop speakers – and with $100 off during Amazon Prime Day 2022, you will be hard pushed to better the sound quality with hi-fi separates.
