Panasonic SC-HTB520

 

If you're fed up with weedy audio from your flatscreen TV you might want to give the Panasonic SC-HTB520 soundbar a whirl.

Good audio quality for movies and music, Sub blends well with the soundbar, Easy to set-up.

Small, fiddly remote, Limited connection options

Panasonic SC-HTB520 review

 

Produces a big, wide soundstage but lacks the features and sound quality of its peers

3D and ARC compatibility ; wireless sub ; sounds better than a flatscreen

No display ; few inputs ; sounds hard at the top and woolly in the bass

The HTB520 sadly lacks the features and sound quality of its peers

Panasonic SC-HTB520 review

 

The majority of TV screens are sold on the basis of their picture quality and how thin they are, so until somebody manages to make slim speakers with as much sonic clout as the traditionally lumpy woofers and tweeters, there's a need for devices such...

Designed to complement most screens; easy to use

Lack of visual info; bass heavy main unit; autoselects TV input

We audition a low-rise soundbar system with a rich output that makes any flat TV sound better

Panasonic SC-HTB520 Review

 

There are many high-end LED televisions being launched in the market, which boast of some pretty impressive specifications.

The Panasonic SC-HTB520 is available in India for a street price of Rs. 26,900. This is an ideal solution for those who do not have very large houses and who do not want a 5.1channel speaker set. It is a very stylish looking speaker and does quite well...

Solid Sound, make sure if fits the room size

 

1. In hindsight, Soundbar was probably too small for the room I tried to use it in.2. Soundbar mounted very easily3. Wireless speaker works fine if you follow the directions4. IMHO - best with Panasonic TV

Soundbar Is A Good Addition

 

We opted for the Panasonic soundbar w/wireless subwoofer to enhance/improve the sound on a new Panasonic plasma TV. The sound quality for the money is great. It was easy to set up and operate and offers great bang for the buck.

Wireless SubWoofer, Great sound improvement, Easy to setup and operate, reasonable price

Consumer review (abt.com)

Huge upgrade over built-in speakers

 

I am very pleased with this purchase. Being an audiophile I am very impressed by the sound compared to more expensive setups. It wont give you the illusion of all around sound but what it does for wider soundstage, vocal clarity and bass impact are...

Finish looks like TV, wireless sub, great values, Warm sound, Easy Set Up

Remote buttons to close
