Better than the tv speakers,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic SC-HTB520EB-K 240W Sound Bar with Wireless Downfiring Subwoofer (2 Piece Set) (Old model) (Electronics)
I read lots of reviews on this before taking the plunge and buying the sound bar. In short, its OK. Its very easy to set up. I have a Panasonic TV which probably made things simplier. The first big annoyance is when you place it on the sound bar in front of the TV it blocks your TV remote. There is a signal repeater included with instructions on how to instal it, but I found by 'bouncing' the signal off the ceiling worked - just feels a bit weird pointing the remote at the ceiling to switch AV sources. I positioned the sub-woofer behind one of the living room chairs about 2 metres from the sound bar. Whether it is because of the distance from the sound bar I dont know, but it emits a constant low background hum which is noticeable at times. The sound bar itself improves voice significantly and creates a more cinema feel. It is a marked improvement on the TV speakers but I wasnt really blown away by it. As I said before....its OK. Three stars in my book.
