Panasonic SC-HTB20 Home Theater Soundbar Reviewed

 

Panasonic's HTB20 soundbar system with its affordable price point may lead you to believe its performance is suspect. However, Andrew Robinson's time with the soundbar revealed it to be anything but.

The HTB20's build quality and versatility out of the box is among its greatest attributes, all for around $200 retail ; The HTB20 ability to be both a soundbar and a discrete pair of stereo loudspeakers puts it in a class with few competitors. It also...

Inexperienced users may not fiddle with the subwoofer's level long enough to get the most out of its performance and could therefore write off the HTB20's sound as bass-heavy or boomy ; One more HDMI input would make the HTB20 a no-brainer, all-in-one...

I must admit, I didn't have high hopes for Panasonic's new roughly $200 HTB20 soundbar system. That was my mistake. For what it is, the HTB20 is quite good. As a $200 upgrade to any HDTV purchase, the HTB20 doesn't disappoint and is worth every penny....

Panasonic SC-HTB20

 

A modestly priced soundbar with some neat design and audio tricks up its sleeve.

Affordable price tag, Good bass performance, Clear dialogue

Lack of a proper display is disappointing, Control system could be easier to use

Panasonic SC-HTB20

 

A poor implementation of a neat concept, with poor sound to boot. Disappointing

Transformer, soundbar in disguise

Poor sound ; Poor user interface ; Wired subwoofer

Despite the novel shape-shifting design, we’re not convinced the Panasonic SC-HTB20 does much to enhance your viewing – which is surely the whole point of considering a soundbar in the first place.

Great sound for a great price

 

Same system was $189.99 locally. TigerDirect beat that price easily combined with free shipping and no tax. Simple to hook up and sounds great. I like that you can control voice and the bass on the sub separately via the remote. I ran an HDMI cable...

Easy & cheap audio boost.

 

After having the new Panasonic TC-P50ST50 for about 2 months now, and having been seduced into the world of 3D shows unexpectedly, I have been kicking around the idea of boosting the sound quality of the new set. I looked alot of reviews of sound bars,...

Lowprice for big improvement, ARC control& viera link

Nothing

Definately worth investment for the bump in audio quality over the internal speakers.

Great sound bar with sub-woofer

 

Great price for this sound bar. Hooked it up to a Toshiba LCD Regza television. It is CEC-compliant and the tv remote works the volume and power controls of the sound bar. Tv is older and does not have an hdmi return channel so using digital audio...

Plan foiled

 

" I had planned to put the base unit behind the TV, however the sensors for controling the sound bar are in the base unit .. Thus the base needs to be on display and if you have an open stand thats ok, No cables are included for connection. The sound...
