Really unbalanced sound

Jeff Kraemer, Amazon
2 April 2013
  • Summary: Think twice about how two very thin speakers and a sub are going to fill the sound stage. I bought this to improve the sound of the TV in my small bedroom in my small apartment. The price looked good, the form factor offered different mounting options, and Panasonic is a brand I am inclined to trust. It's got to be pretty decent, right? Wrong! It only took a few nights of use to decide that this device was definitely not intended for my use case.

It worked great - but for ONLY 58 DAYS!!! Panasonic Product Support gets a failing grade.

  • Summary: Setup was relatively simple and once I completed all the appropriate settings on my Panasonic HDTV and Blu-ray player, operation and integration through Viera link was great. This system can't compete with the THX 7.1 surround of my main home theater, but it was a good addition for the family room TV. As I stated, it worked great for 58 days. On day 59, my daughter was watching an episode of Glee when the unit just quit. No sound, no lights, nothing.

Disapointed

Evan Evans, Amazon

  • Summary: Easy to assemble. Sub woofter is quite large. Not at all impressed with the sound as it seems to cut off the top end of the sound thereby giving a boom boom noise and muffled sound and not a clear sharper tone that I was hoping for. There are no sound indicators on the bar, just a series of led's on the subwoofter that is controlled by a laughably small controller. I don't see how anyone can find this sound bar acceptable unless you like tons of base and no treble.

Sound bar

  • Summary: Supplier was good but product does not meet with my reasonable requirements. Purchased to improve on the poor and unclear audio from my flat screen Samsung TV. My hearing is not overly good, nether my wife or myself cannot listen to the audio as the sound is far poorer than the TV.

Nicht für alle Ohren passend.

Katzenruppi, Amazon
8 April 2013
  • Summary: Klangregelung, insbesondere Subwoofer ungenügend (in allen Lautstärken donnernd u. grollend, immer im Vordergrund überproportional hörbar). Zwar leichter Aufbau, jedoch komplizierte Konfiguration zum TV. Evtl. nur für absolute Filmfreaks. Für mein Klangempfinden nicht geeignet Design toll.

Katastrophe

Wombert, Amazon
25 February 2013
  • Summary: Ich gebe zwei Sterne weil: 1) die Soundbar tatsächlich Ton produziert; 2) man das Gerät in der Mitte teilen und die beiden Hälften dann als separate Lautsprecher einzeln aufstellen kann (in der Tat nützlich und clever). Das war es dann aber schon mit den positiven Eigenschaften. Abgesehen davon, dass der Subwoofer - völlig lächerlich - einen Lüfter verbaut hat welcher unablässig surrt, und dass alle verwendeten Kabel proprietäre Stecker haben (wohl aber typisch für...
