Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic SC-HTB20EB-K 240w Soundbar (Discontinued by Manfacturer) (Electronics)
These are a huge improvement on the weedy inbuilt speakers on most flatscreens, but a more compact alternative to a full surround sound system, if like me, you don't really have the option of drilling holes in the walls to fit speakers and you don't want wires trailing all around. The subwoofer packs an impressive punch (and I haven't even got it near to maximum volume) and the soundbar does actually give an element of "3D" sound. I have, for example, been watching something, and thought I heard something outside the window to my side, before realising that it is actually coming from the speaker! How this is achieved from something directly infront of you, I don't know. Lastly, I like the nifty little feature that you can separate the 2 speakers if it meets your setup better, and this will presumably give more stereo separation, but I found I preferred the look of keeping it as a bar.
In conclusion, it sounds as beautiful as it looks, and is worth the price (especially if you can get it in a discounted bundle with a tv as I did!)
