“Can minimise clutter and cable, Home theatre system, An neat system with assembly issues!, Great soundbar and supports Audio Return Channel with the right TV and cable, Panasonic SC-HTB550EBK”

I acquired this to replace a disappointing orbitsound seem bar and it was promptly evident it really is in a distinctive league. Coming from a mainstream manufacturer the establish excellent is outstanding. Setup was straightforward – the sky box and bluray participant link to the hdmi ports in the back again of the head device and join to the tv by way of hdmi/arc. Extra hdmi ports would have been valuable (most tvs occur with four these times) but as it is, the apple television has to be linked to the tv set which then outputs to the head device by using the hdmi/arc link. I would have to have to do the exact with a activity console. The speakers can be established up as a single audio bar, or two individual speakers either aspect of the television set. I selected the latter as it provides a moderately better stereo influence. Black speaker cables alternatively than the white kinds offered would have been better aesthetically and due to the fact they use bespoke connections, can not be swapped out for aftermarket cables. The sub woofer has a wireless bluetooth relationship so can be put any place in the room near a energy outlet.

I bought this merchandise on the basis of reading through the amazon shopper reviews and i have to confess i agree with the reviewers in all issues. The sound is outstanding and tools quite straightforward to assemble primarily if you are an older particular person with small or now knowledge of electronics the white speaker cables are pretty noticeable when assembled and my respond to to this was to go over them in black insulation tape exactly where obvious. The only other disadvantage is the the really inadequate illumination on the control box. I experienced to get within just a few of feet of the the unit panasonic sc-htb550ebk soundbar with wireless downfiring subwoofer (new for 2012)to examine what was illuminated- the darker the place also will help. All in all i am incredibly happy with the seem consequences and owning just watched the blu-ray disc of avatar it virtually blew me out of the seat.

An neat technique with assembly challenges. This is great if you want a somewhat economical dwelling theatre procedure without having all the muddle that goes with a regular five. Great factors: versatile established with several choices,appears to be high-priced,bass is wireless and seems very good, the improvment about your tv audio is appreciable specifically the bass, audio return channel amazing if your television set supports this for the reason that you will only need just one hdmi cable, bluetooth songs streaming from your phone or other device is excellent. Poor details: threading the speaker wire as a result of the bass of the speaker stands (if you use them) is a discomfort . The amp does not have a good display screen, transforming the settings is fiddly, the very clear manner dialogue and bass only have four levelsi haven’t analyzed 3d surround but usually the seem is very good and the crystal clear manner dialogue is exceptional but this is genuinely a setup for household theatre novices or people today not overly concerned with strengthening their tv’s sound good quality. For perfectionists and men and women wanting for cinema good quality audio can i propose you commit a little bit extra. On the other hand if you are not much too fussy and ona spending plan i would advise this method for very good bass, superb dialogue and bluetooth.

One thought on “Panasonic SC-HTB550EBK Soundbar : Can minimise clutter and cable

  1. Good soundbar, parents bought a sony which has a better all round surround sound, still pleased though.
    • Having heard my daughter & son-in-laws’ sound bar i was tempted to buy this one. I have a panasonic viera tv, and this is the ideal partner. Makes speech much clearer, and improves the sound a lot. Minor criticisms are that the tv sensor is low down on the frame of the tv. If you put the soundbar on the same level as the tv, it blocks the sensor. Need to raise the tv around 50cms to clear the soundbar. Also, the viera link which controls the sound input to the tv is a little quirky. I also have a panasonic blue-ray palyer plugged through the sound bar. If you switch on the tv first the sound follows the input, as long as you switch the blue-ray player on after the tv.
  2. A great soundbar with superb bass response and pretty decent mid and top range. I have mine connected to a 55 inch panasonic 3d tv and it works together with the tv perfectly. I also have one connected to a samsung which i need to switch on using is own separate handset. Being compatible with panasonic tvs, to me is a huge advantage in that it switches on when the tv is switched on. All in all i’m very pleased with the product and it also looks good and you can stick the subwoofer wherever you like as its wireless.

    I bought this to replace a disappointing orbitsound sound bar and it was immediately obvious it’s in a different league. Coming from a mainstream manufacturer the build quality is excellent. Setup was straightforward – the sky box and bluray player connect to the hdmi ports in the back of the head unit and connect to the tv via hdmi/arc. Additional hdmi ports would have been useful (most tvs come with 4 these days) but as it is, the apple tv has to be connected to the tv which then outputs to the head unit via the hdmi/arc connection. I would need to do the same with a game console. The speakers can be set up as a single sound bar, or two separate speakers either side of the tv. I chose the latter as it gives a moderately better stereo effect. Black speaker cables rather than the white ones provided would have been better aesthetically and because they use bespoke connections, can’t be swapped out for aftermarket cables. The sub woofer has a wireless bluetooth connection so can be placed anywhere in the room near a power outlet.
    • Nice system giving uprated audio through the speakers from the basic freeview tv. Virgin box cable tv and blue ray player. Simple connection with one hdmi cable from amp to arc connection on my panasonic tv. The wireless sub woofer adds deep sounds that are lost through the television internal speakersall in all a nice looking piece of kit that does the job without the hassle of a total five speaker system.

    Great soundbar and supports audio return channel with the right tv and cable. Purchased to work with a 47 inch panasonic and later used with a 46 inch samsung tv, the improvement in sound was remarkable and as the connection was made via audio return channel (arc) using hdm 1. 4 cable (earlier versions may not work for arc) the volume can controlled via the single tv remote. I had previously used an bulky and expensive hifi for sound and am happy with the sound from this unit is of comparable quality with a good balanced sound, exciting bass, and clear tone for hearing dialogue, hence 5 stars. All units in the system apart from the r/c are finished in shiny black plastic which may not be to all tastes and likely to get fingermarks easily. Comprises:main unit: connects to mains, to tv via arc (hdmi 1. 4)cable – not supplied, and to l and r speaker units via supplied cables. Subwoofer, connects to mains. Wireless connection for sound so it can be anywhere in the room but i found it worked by far the best up at the front next to the tv as you get unpleasant sound if closer to the listener than the main speakersmain speakers: connect to main unit via above mentioned cables. Unfortunately these cables are white so need careful hiding if they are not to appear visible against the black plastic of the rest of the unit.
    • I bought this product on the basis of reading the amazon customer reviews and i must admit i agree with the reviewers in all matters. The sound is excellent and equipment quite easy to assemble especially if you are an older person with little or now knowledge of electronics the white speaker cables are very noticeable when assembled and my answer to this was to cover them in black insulation tape where visible. The only other drawback is the the very poor illumination on the control box. I had to get within a couple of feet of the the unit panasonic sc-htb550ebk soundbar with wireless downfiring subwoofer (new for 2012)to check what was illuminated- the darker the room also helps. All in all i am very pleased with the sound effects and having just watched the blu-ray disc of avatar it nearly blew me out of the seat.

    Can minimise clutter and cable. All black with mirror like finish, very smart and stylish to match my neo plasma 42″ screen and bluray player recorder (both panasonic) so why white speaker cable which stands out a mile panasonic are you blind?nice choice of having the speakers joined with feet and pads to rest it on a stand, or feet which raise it a few cm above the stand (beware you will see the white cable unless you use black electrical tape to tape it on to the speakers and off to one side or wrap round the cables on the way to the rear). Or speakers separated to stand vertically either side of the tv using supplied stands. Lights on the amp unit are very pin head like and very unobtrusive, don’t know why as the plasma tv and blue ray by panasonic have bigger leds. Takes some time to unpack all the optional bits and assembly is not fast as items have to be screwed together. End result is solidconnected to tv using hdmi in the arc socket and once set up using quick guide worked after an on off cycle of the tv and unit, don’t know why it took that. Sound is very clear and a distinct improvement of tv only. It replaced an old panasonic surround sound with 5 speakers and sub woofer which had dvd and radio. This new system is far less clutter and wires, has a crisper sound which is more than stereo but not as noticeably surround as having speakers behind you.
    • An neat system with assembly issues. This is ideal if you want a relatively inexpensive home theatre system without all the clutter that goes with a traditional 5. Good points: flexible set with multiple options,looks expensive,bass is wireless and sounds good, the improvment over your tv sound is considerable especially the bass, audio return channel fantastic if your tv supports this because you’ll only need one hdmi cable, bluetooth music streaming from your phone or other device is excellent. Bad points: threading the speaker wire through the bass of the speaker stands (if you use them) is a pain . The amp does not have a proper display, changing the settings is fiddly, the clear mode dialogue and bass only have 4 levelsi haven’t tested 3d surround but generally the sound is good and the clear mode dialogue is excellent but this is really a setup for home theatre novices or people not overly concerned with improving their tv’s sound quality. For perfectionists and people looking for cinema quality sound can i suggest you spend a bit more. On the other hand if you are not too fussy and ona budget i would recommend this system for good bass, excellent dialogue and bluetooth.
