Panasonic SC-HTB550 review

 

With an outboard audio processor, the Panasonic SC-HTB550 2.1 system ups the ante for virtual home cinema sound, bringing 3D to the table

Virtual surround sound ; Bluetooth ; Splitable soundbar

Pretty darn ugly ; No USB media reader ; Sub is a bit of a lightweight

A symphony in black plastic, the Panasonic SC-HTB550 confounds expectations. The system, which comprises a wireless subwoofer, 95cm soundbar and dedicated audio processor, looks decidedly utilitarian – yet it sounds like a mini multiplex.

Do you want a soundbar? Or a 2.1 system with a standalone processor? Acknowledging that there's gold in them thar TV audio upgrade hills, Panasonic has decided to attack both markets with the SC-HTB550 – a novel package that can either be configured as...

Effective 3D sound processing; goes loud and doesn’t skimp on the slam

Plasticky build quality; rubbish remote control; not good for music

Panasonic's flexible SC-HTB550 can be used either as a soundbar or a traditional 2.1 system.

Flexible design ; Crisp dialogue and strong bass ; Easy to set up

Some aspects of the control system could be simpler ; Lacks a proper screen

Some great ideas from Panasonic, but there are more engaging soundbars

Remote-adjustable dialogue and subwoofer levels ; Can be used as a 2.1 set-up ; Good connectivity

Small overall sound ; Could be more spacious ; Subwoofer lacking muscle

So it’s a mixed bag for the Panasonic: the multi-positional speakers are a bonus, and nearly anything is better than the wispy sound from your TV, but there are better-performing soundbars that are far more engaging.
