Panasonic SC-HTB500 Sound Bar First Look

 

Panasonic announced this week a brand new 3D-compatible surround bar home theater speaker system in the SC-HTB500 starting in August. The sound bar is designed to fit neatly in front of a flat panel.

European HT Soundbar 2010-2011 - Panasonic SC-HTB500

 

Televisions may be getting thinner by the year but this makes the engineering of their integral, flat loudspeakers all the more difficult and explains the rise of the ‘Soundbar'. Panasonic's SC-HTB500 solution is aimed at owners of flat panel TVs sized...

Quality Workmanship, easy set up, very good sound

 

Sound projects into the room; wireless subwoofer works well; turns on and off with one Panasonic remote for TV, DVD Recorder and Sound bar; and you don't need a Phd in wiring and remote control operation to enjoy a home theater experience.

High quality fit and finish; great sound for our needs;works well with other Panasonic products;uses two HDMI cables and possibly 1 optical audio cable; great base; great price from Costco

No real problems with this unit. If you are real 'picky' and possibly obsessive you may find a fault

EZ hook up, sounds fantastic

 

For 200.00 dollars, Great buy.

Good price, Nice sound. Used the optical cable and worked fine. Sound bar is the future of surround sound. Simple set up, Great sound

Wish the cable came in the box. I was lucky to have the cable laying around

Surprisingly a great system

 

I got this system free with a Panasonic HDTV purchase through Amazon. I already have a 5.1 system for the new TV so I hooked this beauty up to my PC. I have to say, it would be worth the $240ish asking price for someone looking for great/clear ......

Easy of use, hooked up to my PC with only an optical cable...that's it! Good bass. Clear sound. No issues with the wireless communication. Sure, It's no 5.1 system...but for the PC station...it's excellent. Attractive build quality too

Wish the indicator lights would stay on for the options set. Not a big deal. I guess they didn't want a bunch of LED's lit while watching something

Couldn't Even Turn On Sound Bar

 

I bought this at Costco for $220 on Dec 7th to go with my 50 inch Samsung plasma, model PN50A550, purchased in Dec. 2008. The subwoofer plugged in easily into an outlet. The digital transmitter piece clicked into the back of the sound bar easily too....

Easy to pack up and return to store

Not functional on a 50 inch Samsung I bought 2 years ago
