Great alternative to the TV speakers

I bought this for my basement TV that has poor sound and not much volume. I am very impressed with the quality of this unit. The sound is great with several adjustments and much louder than my TV speakers. I had bought another brand for about half the price of this one and it was terrible, no better than the TV speakers. I would highly recommend this if you want great sound in a small package for a good price. I don't know why there are negative reviews. I did not experience any of the problems others have with this.

Decent Sound for a High Price

Let's start off by saying I am not an audio enthusiast, merely a casual music listener. Pros: -Extremely portable -Good volume level -Great bluetooth range Cons: -Too expensive for what it's worth -Bass isn't very loud -Lack of HDMI and AUX inputs I ended up returning this and paid a little more for the CT260H (Google it).

Good bang for the buck

I'm not quite sure what's with the negative reviews but if you're expecting a full 5.1 surround sound system for [price], give your head a shake...don't be cheap and go spend the money on an actual 5.1. I live in a condo and space is limited. I've had this sound bar mounted on the wall just below my Panasonic Viera and it works fantastic. For the low price point, I think it does the job just fine. The sound is so much richer than the tv speakers. I would definitely recommend this if you're on a lower budget or have limited space. I have rarely been disappointed with Panasonic products. The remote is small but works fine...its not meant to be beaten/tossed around. The only negative thing I would say is that it doesn't give me the option to pair it up with my Panasonic tv remote or any other universal remote.

Literally had the product for 32 days and it DOES NOT WORK. Changed the batteries in the remote several times, does not turn on. No manual turn on either. Best Buy advised me to just call the Manufacturer and see if they could help me. WORST Customer service.

Excellent Value

Usage - Gaming. Wanted something clean and simple to bump the sound quality from the TV speakers, w/o extra sub boxes or wiring. Comes with well thought out brackets, all good quality and lots of options. The wall mounts were easy following the detailed dimensions in the manual and are very secure. Even the clips that lock it on to the wall have felt pads so the unit does not get scratched (nice touch). Unit itself looks good, is solid and with 6 drivers (2 tweeters, 2 mids, 2 subs) actually produces a respectable sound field. Dialog is very clear/focused and there is enough punch and rumble to satisfy. No - it won't shake the room, but considering how compact it is I was pleasantly surprised. Couple of nit picks - LEDs are fine, but would prefer they dim completely between changes (only dim partially), and while it does show volume up/down it does not show current volume level at all. Would be nice to set it at say 2 LEDs before starting a game. All-in-all though, especially on sale, excellent value and well designed.

Panasonic Soundbar

Great buy for the money. It was an easy decision buying this soundbar. It is slim and easily set up. No obtrusive wires. The built in subwoofer is great for my livingroom. Full theatre sound without needing additional speakers and wall mounts. Highly recommended.

Panasonic Sound Bar

This sound bar is excellent for what I needed, I had problems with dialogue and my TV sound. Easy to set up, low profile so it didn't block the TV sensor and finally I am able to hear conversations without having to keep raising the sound level. For the first time I watched a movie without having to constantly change the volume!!!! It also has a mute button for ads, what more could you want, excellent!!! One hint it may be my setup but to turn the bar on with the remote I have to turn it on before the TV otherwise I have to turn it on at the bar. We are very pleased with this purchase!!!!!

Panasonic Soundbar

This is a great soundbar from Panasonic. It is so easy to set up. It took less than 5 minutes. Would recommend noting that the optic cable doesn't come with the soundbar. You have to buy it separately. Great price and shipping. Highly recommended.

Great Panasonic Soundbar

I ordered this sound bar online. It was the built in subwoofer, the brand and the price that appealed to me. I didn't want additional subwoofer wires all over. The item was shipped quickly and easily set up. Unfortunately, the box didn't include an optic cable. In other words, it couldn't be used with my tv only my Bluetooth iPod. So I had to buy an optic cable for nearly $30" Panasonic should be very clear about this not being included. Rather they include an IR blaster which ONLY works with Panasonic TVs. Mine is a 50" LG. Today was pleased to find that BestBuy had a $20 off this sound bar sale that their Customer Service Department easily credited to my PayPal account. Overall very happy with this purchase and would recommend it.

Great value for the price

Sound quality is good for small to mid size room. Design is excellent as there is no separate sub-woofer. Bluetooth is plus point and it works great.

Poor Quality than expected

I bought this sound bar because I have a Panasonic Plasma TV. it has Base and two speakers and easy to setup. I wish that it will generate great sound with it because it received digital signal from TV. but the sound is not better than TV sound (very wonder this) and test with bluetooth stream with my cell phone…it also the sound likes AM radio sound. Very disappointed qualities of sound and returned it next day. decided better buying good speakers.

Great Soundbar when on SALE

I ordered the soundbar when it was on sale from the website aand free shipping. I love buying online and there were no problems. I love the soundbar and it really enhances the sound which is actually what I needed. The only thing is that you have to order the digital audio cable separately as it does not come with the soundbar but no big deal.
