Summary: I recently moved into an apartment and felt my 5.1 infinity system is overkill for the space. I chose this product for it's ability to separate in two pieces allowing for my remote to control the TV. It's a stylish piece and looks great. As for sound, bass is more than I expected. Very boomy but not overkill as others suggested. My reason for 3 stars is the mid and highs while watching movies. I sense the highs are a tad too high while the mids are almost non-existent.
Summary: no apps.... external box with difficult buttons (you need to read and memorize the manual... so to pair a phone to play music you need to hold down buttons etc... ) then ofcourse my TV is a LG... so no way to control volume with just one remote. etc. Sound is fine, but i have heard similar from those old Computer speakers.. like harmon kardon or 10watt westinghouse... In hindsight, i would have just plugged in computer spearks to tv.
Summary: I have had this for a while now, and the sound is great, no complaints there. It doesn't work with the Viera system remotes, meaning you have to use the credit card remote to adjust volume or input source. I have it connected to a panasonic tv and panasonic blu-ray player. I wish just one remote would rule them all. The bass is very nice, and the sound is crisp and clear. The bluetooth antenna works quite well with all of my devices.
Next to the new ultra thin TV's it sounds great, on its own is another story...

Summary: I recently got the Panasonic VIERA TC-L55ET5 55-Inch 1080p 120Hz 3D Full HD IPS LED-LCD TV with 4 Pairs of Polarized 3D Glasses which has been a great TV, my one complaint though is the sound from the TV. It sounds like everyone is talking in a tin can. No amount of sound adjustment can put out decent sound from the TV. It's very flat for lack of a better description. As you can tell, I'm no hard core audiophile, so I was drawn to this price range.
Summary: First a couple of questions: Is the audio quality any better or different with the "high quality" fiber optic hookup compared to the RCA pin hookup? I did not notice any difference. Is the sound quality, especially dialogue, any better on the 550 model compared to this (350) model? The 550 is $100 more than this unit and the only difference I notice is the availability of HDMI hookup.
