Panasonic SC-HTB520

What Hi-Fi?
30 December 2011
  • Excerpt: This unit is an affordable, disc-less affair, yet it still boasts a wireless subwoofer and a compact, slick-looking main unit with so-called ‘invisible’ speakers. Corners have been cut to meet that price, though, so the Panasonic HTB520 has just two inputs – one HDMI and one optical. The HDMI output is ARC-enabled, so you could run your sources into your TV and then back to the soundbar, but it isn’t too elegant a solution.
  • Pros: 3D and ARC compatibility, wireless sub, sounds better than a flatscreen
  • Cons: No display, few inputs, sounds hard at the top and woolly in the bass

  • Excerpt: The Panasonic SC-HTB520's sheer presence will spoil the immaculate appearance of your TV on its stand, but with a Hobbit-esque height of less than 8cm it shouldn't affect viewing or block the IR receiver for your TV.

Test: Panasonic Kit-SC-HTB 520 (Soundbar)

CHIP Online
14 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Die Panasonic-Soundbar SC-HTB 520 klingt um Klassen besser als der gewohnte, dünne Sound aktueller Flachbild-Fernseher. Dabei konzentriert sich das Set aus Klangleiste und Funk-Subwoofer auf das Wesentliche, nämlich einen richtig guten Klang. Es gibt zwar nur zwei Sound-Programme, Stereo und Surround, doch überzeugen beide auf ganzer Linie mit Bass und Pegelfestigkeit.
  • Pros: Überzeugender Klang bei Kinoton und Musik, Tiefe und dynamische Bässe, Einfache Bedienung, Drahtloser Subwoofer, HDMI-Technik mit 3D und ARC
  • Cons: Wenige Eingänge, Simple LED-Anzeigen

Yksinkertainen valinta

15 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Panasonicin muotoilu on testijoukon huomaamattomimmasta päästä. Laite sopii kokonsa puolesta hyvin 42-tuumaisen tai isomman television kaveriksi. Mukana tuleva kaukosäädin on erittäin yksinkertainen. Haittapuolena ...
  • Pros: Selkeä puheääni, Helppokäyttöinen
  • Cons: Bassotoisto, Säädettävyys

  • Excerpt: Panasonic SC-HTB520 er en meget tynd soundbar, som med sine 7,5 cm i højden næppe vil komme i vejen for tv´et, selv om den ligger på tv- bænken. Vægbeslag følger også med. Fordi subwooferen er trådløs, kan den placeres hvor som helst i rummet.
  • Pros: Klar mellemtone, Stor bas, Lille størrelse
  • Cons: Lidt træg bas, Ingen analoge indgange, Ikke iPod-dock

  • Summary: Panasonic-planken er meget slank og elegant, og kan for mange legges på TV-benken uten at den kommer i veien. Bra låter den også.

  • Summary: Panasonic-planken er meget slank og elegant, og kan for mange legges på TV-benken uten at den kommer i veien. Bra låter den også. Panasonic SC-HTB520 er en meget slank lydplanke, som med sine 7,5 cm i høyden neppe vil komme i veien for TV-en, selv om den ligger på en benk. Veggfester følger også med. Fordi subwooferen er trådløs, kan den plasseres hvor som helst i rommet. Lydkvaliteten er overraskende bra.
