Summary: I chose this item primarily because the layout of my living room is simply not conducive to a 5.1 or 7.1 full surround system (without going full wireless, which is incredibly expensive) but I wanted to upgrade from my new TV's subpar built-in speakers.
Summary: I really like this unit. The sound is great and goes well with my Panasonic TV since i can control it with my TV remote. Only downside i can think of is, I cant change the receiver inputs with the TV remote. So the only time i have to use the receiver remote is when i need to change inputs.
Summary: This is an easy hookup and it sounds nice. We just put the bar in front of the screen, the the option of stands or wall mount is great as well. The wireless sub is nice and out of the way behind the couch.
Summary: Great for condo/apartment owners who want excellent sound and feature set but not disturb your neighbors. The bass gives a better quality sound when watching movies. Bluetooth streaming via phone is great. Have this hooked up to my panasonic gt50. Viera link works great!
Summary: This is a nice sound system to complement Panasonic VIERA TC-L55DT50 TV set. Easy to assemble and several configuration options. Pros: 1. Good sound, wireless subwoofer. 2. Several set-up options to choose from. 3. HDMI connections (one with ARC) Cons: 1. No LCD Display 2.
Summary: I have had the HTB550 for about a week now. I have it connected to my PS3 (BD/DVD HDMI in), FIOS Box (TV HDMI in) and out to my Panasonic Viera P50u50 Plasma via hdmi (ARC - HDMI2). I also chose to have it setup as a bar not as two separate speakers just below my tv.
Summary: Good price for above average sound system. Different options to choose from on main controller. (Simulated surround sound - included) All component connections were with HDMI ports. Like the wireless sub woofer but wish it turned off when the main controller is remotely turned off.
Definitely a step up over the TV's built-in speakers

Summary: I bought a Panasonic 47 inch 3D TV (TC-L47ET5) and am very satisfied with the TV overall. But I like movie soundtracks and thought the built in speakers were just adequate for watching news and similar programming.
