Panasonic SC-HTB550

Wireless Sound Bar Home Cinema System

Panasonic SC-HTB550 Home Cinema Sound Bar


This speaker can be split into two by removing the connecting hardware in the centre. Then you have four great installation options to suit your room. Try a horizontal or vertical speaker layout and have them free standing or wall mounted.

Music archived on your smartphone or PC can be played back via Bluetooth®. Enjoy crystal clear sound with no worry about music signal interference from obstructions.

Based on the phenomenal MASH noise shaping technology used for many years in Panasonic products, the Anti-Jitter Digital Amplifier markedly reduces jitter and distortion that can affect audio clarity, producing pure brilliant sound. The result is high quality sound with a full surround effect that rivals that of a real home cinema system.

The audio signal is wirelessly transmitted from the main unit to the subwoofer, eliminating troublesome wiring and restrictions on where the subwoofer can be placed for complete layout freedom. *AC power cord must be connected.

By expanding the sound field in the upper front area of the TV screen, Clear-mode Dialog gives the sound greater depth. It also makes voices sound like they’re coming from the centre of the screen. Dialogue volume is adjustable to 4 levels. This function is great for when dialog is drowned out by the surround sound and is difficult to hear.
