Excellent sound, but poor remote

Ramon Galvan, Amazon
1 March 2013
  • Summary: Sound quality is quite good for the product's price and size, but the lack of display and a normal remote made unusable for me. The included remote is not only small in size, but in power as well, needs to be close to the device. Additionally, the device is not supported by my AR universal remote.

Expected more

Alex Kneller, Amazon

  • Summary: For the price, I expected a much better sound. For example, the Sony HTCT260 sound bar is cheaper but has a much better sound and is much easier in assembly. For this bar, I did like how it looks but assembly was more difficult that it should have been (awful design for the stands).

  • Summary: Sound is mediocre. Other than adding bass, it doesn't improve sound very much over the TV speakers. Programming gets out of sync occasionally, though can be programmed as part of a media system (tv, dvd, cable box, sound system)

Decent

DJ, Amazon
7 October 2012
  • Summary: Pros: Looks great (glossy, shiny, appropriate size), great sound for 2.1, setup options (I went with the split vertical drilled to the wall) and reasonably priced. The wireless subwoofer is a great feature as well. Cons: I was unable to hide the speaker wires.

Fair System but Beware Of Panasonic Support

Michael Paulus, Amazon
7 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this system with assurances from Panasonic that it would turn off and on with my Viera TV and would change volume with the tv so that the sound system remote would not be required. That was not true.

Good for the price.

Steven, Amazon
6 October 2012
  • Summary: Bought this brand to work with Panny tv. Sound is just OK, not great but not bad. Works very easily with Panny remote. Set up was a breeze. Also got Bluetooth connected quite easily with ipods, android tablets, and various phones. Connected PS3 to unit, then unit out to ARC connection on tv.

Had a small issue

Nigel A., Amazon
6 October 2012
  • Summary: Sound wise this is perfect if you do not want (or can) to go to a 5.1 surround sound. The main issue I had was that it does have two HDMI inputs but I could only get the audio (through the hdmi cable) to work on one of them. (Aux 1). Why it would not work on Aux 2 is unknown.

Better then what we had but

krvist, Amazon
6 October 2012
  • Summary: ….wish there was a speaker with the subwoofer. The subwoofer being separate from the speakers means you get a lot of base from one part of the room (in our case the back) and the rest of the tones from the front which doesn't sound balanced.
