Summary: Bought the speakers system for our flat panel TV (40").W e sis not want the area cluttered with speaker wires. The Panasonic speaker/s was exactly what we were looking for. The sound was crisp and the voice is sharp. The base can be overpowering once in a while but it does a veru good job during scenes with explosion and loud noises. Had purchased the COBY 3D but that speaker broke in less than 3 weeks and the sound on the Panasonic is superior than the COBY.
Summary: I bought this product because it got very good reviews in terms of the sonics. The design was somewhat controversial which I figured might lead to a price-break after the holidays, I was right. The sound is excellent, the commands are basic (subwoofer up or down, volum up or down), my only gripe is that the remote is tiny, which is nice and elegant, but also means it's easy to lose.
Excerpt: Purchsed this through Amazon and payed $100 less than it was going for at Best Buy. Has just the right combination or bass and treble to improve upon the sound of my LED HDTV speakers. While the mid range sound falls a little short, movies and music sound better and louder and boom with more...
Summary: I must admit, a sound bar is a compromise over a full 5-1 sound system. In my case, this is fitted to a wall in the corner of the room and I think it affects the sound quality a great deal. The fact the subwoofer is cordless is a great bonus (as you can place it out of the way and not tether it to the sound bar with yet more wires. I like the fact it has both an HDMI input and an optical digital connection (as digital is the best quality).
Summary: I have struggled with this for two years now and have concluded that it is very poor value for money. When I play DVDs the voices often sound woolly and muffled - consequently I often cannot hear dialogue. The remote control that comes with this has no treble control so you cannot boost the higher frequencies. I am sure that for this amount of money there are much better soundbars available - make sure you get one that has bass and treble controls.
Summary: I've had this sound bar for some time now. It makes so much difference to the sound quality both for games and TV. I have not used an external sound system before, so I can't compare with other products available, but this one is good for me in sound quality and design.
Summary: I fitted this to my Panasonic TV having first fitted an Apple TV streamer, the streamer really made me realise how bad the TV speakers are. This product transformed the listening experience, I now AirPlay music via the streamer and TV into the sound bar, it sounds good to me and impresses everybody. Movie and TV sound is stunning. It took longer to unpack then set up via the TV HDMI slot. This is a low cost solution to cinema type sound.
Summary: Firstly must praise the supplier, dispatched and received within 24hrs. Now the Sound Bar, I can honestly say the difference in sound connected to my Panasonic Viera is brilliant. My wife was dubious but on setting up and read the instructions carefully. My wife was more than happy, I cannot praise this Sound Bar enough not cheap, the sound quality is well worth the cost, you not be disappointed.
