Summary: We were tired of having to ask that question whenever we watched shows on our flat screen TV. This adaptable sound-bar system gives you "the rest of the story" back, filling in the bass more richly. The price was quite reasonable considering all that the system delivers.
Summary: This set is amazing. I have a 60'' TV and I feel like I'm in a movie theater. I often find myself turning it up too high and then my dog goes bonkers. This thing has some serious bass. Panasonic makes some great products. Stay away from Samsung.
Summary: This is my first venture into external speaker, and being in a small apartment I don't want to be one of those people with some crazy setup that would give people the desire to murder me every night I watch the tube. I have a Panasonic tv and a Panasonic blu-ray, so that's a major reason why I bought this. I could care less usually if I have mixed and match parts, but the fact that everything works and easily so made it a no brainer.
Summary: I have a Panasonic Viera TV and this Soundbar was incredibly easy to set up - 15 minutes or so. The Audio Return Channel allows the TV to turn on the Soundbar, so I have not even needed the remote since day one. The sound is a big improvement over the TV speakers. Dialogue is easier to understand and the bass really adds to movies. Very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend, especially if you own a Viera TV with Viera Link.
Summary: This is perfect for my apartment. Good bass and good midrange' of course its not true surround but for the price and quality it can,t be beat !! Also, I have a 55 plasma Panasonic so they sync with the remotes automatically, I also have a Panasonic 3d blue-ray player that completes the set.
Summary: These speakers provide a much more immersive movie watching experience than the built-in speakers on the TV. I coupled this unit with a 55" GT50 and the Viera Link worked seamlessly. If you're expecting true and full surround sound, pony up more cash to spend on another unit. This is in a one-bedroom apartment and it more than adequately fills it up. It truly has transformed my movie watching experience and I wish I had purchased it earlier.
Summary: The Speaker system works great. I have it set up with the digital optical cable. It is great that way. Strangely, i have Tivo and when I pause it, the sound from the show continues, but when I restart the show the sound corrects immediately. More than likely it is something to do with the TV. Otherwise great system for the money. It is also nice the way the system allows for different configurations of the speakers. Well worth the money.
Summary: I have a Panasonic TV 50" new Tv. I hate the reflected sound out of the rear speakers. So I bought this. It is a GREAT improvement to the rear speakers especially on HD shows. The sub is a very welcome addition to the sound. I have the speakers separated and lying horizontal under the TV.
Summary: Got this from Amazon to go along with a new Panasonic plasma (also from Amazon). It's a basic setup but, especially for Panasonic TVs, a very attractive match. Easy to assemble. In my case, I have the sound bar horizontal in front of the 55" and have no problem with remote control. Our Blu-ray player is also Panasonic. Combined, along with the Panasonic Viera (I believe that's their quirky marketing name for it) linking protocol, they work together beautifully.
