Great Sound Bar for the Price
Overall I would recommend this sound bar. It's relatively cheap, it will give you significantly better sound compared to stock, and has some nice features that many others in this price range don't. (Bluetooth connectivity with mobile devices, wireless sub, optical cable included)
Great Value great sound!
This by far has been the best value and bang for the buck. The older Samsung models did lack some sound and features. This fits my needs perfectly and delivers a solid sound for the room I need. This will be wall mounted underneath a Vizio E Series Razor 55" LED/LCD. I was able to connect my Samsung Galaxy Note II via bluetooth immediately and play music within seconds.
Wide choice of installation options
With a variety of installation options, the SC-HTB770 is one of the most versatile soundbar systems on the market. Whether you use it as a soundbar or free-standing separates, on the wall or on a TV stand, it can be integrated into your living room with minimum fuss - perfect if you have limited space to play with.
But even better news is its terrific sound quality - powerful, poised and expansive, it makes movies sound ten times more exciting than any TV.
Not a great system
I was very unimpressed with this system. While it was triple the prize of my old speakers (which have now come down even more) the sound quality is far worse. The bass, in particular, suffers; with my logitecs I could shake the floor playing Led Zeppelin and with this samsung system I can hardly even hear the bass, despite doing everything possible to turn it up.
Great sound, weak remote control
Hooked into my Samsung with optical cable. WONDERFUL sound. The SRS is just as I remember it from my old Sony XBR. Would have given 5 stars, except for the weak remote control. Very low power. Have already purchased a programable remote to replace it. Would be nice, too, if "line-of-sight" was not required for the sub-woofer. BUT at $200, cannot really complain.
Great Sound Bar and Sub
Got this brand new for a steal off of CL. I was a little apprehensive due to the lack of reviews of this product but decided to roll the dice...and I am glad I did. Like other reviews, the sound that this bar produces is clear and crisp. Super easy to set up. I have this baby hooked up to my Sony Bravia 46" in my large living room and it does not disappoint. Besides audio from shows and movies, I cranked out music from my PS3 and it sounded great.
Good bass performance
The Panasonic SC-HTB20 is a neat package and the flexibility of its design - it can be used either as a soundbar or traditional 2.1 system - helps broaden its appeal. It's also a good sonic performer for the price, but we can't help feeling it would have been easier to use if Panasonic had kited it out with a proper screen.
Build quality and versatility out of the box is among its greatest attributes
I must admit, I didn't have high hopes for Panasonic's new roughly $200 HTB20 soundbar system. That was my mistake. For what it is, the HTB20 is quite good. As a $200 upgrade to any HDTV purchase, the HTB20 doesn't disappoint and is worth every penny. I have a dedicated home theater, and yet I have kept the HTB20 hooked up just for casual viewing or listening when I don't want to fire up all the equipment or go through all the pageantry required for big-time movie watching.
This system works really well in my home. The sound quality is nice and plays both DVDs and Blu-rays nicely. Sometimes there is a long delay in starting the movies (this should be normal, some players take a couple minutes to load), but most of the time it starts right up. I enjoy using this system to watch movies with my little boy.
Crisp dialogue and strong bass
The SC-HTB550 is a major step up from last year's SC-HTB520, not just in the flexibility of its design, but also in the array of connections on offer. Changing some of the more in-depth settings can be a bit obtuse, but most of the main features are still easy to use. And when it comes to delivering good bass effects and clean, clear dialogue, it's up with the best soundbars we've tested. As a result, if you're looking for a modestly priced soundbar or 2.1 system, we think it's a good option.
Virtual surround sound
A symphony in black plastic, the Panasonic SC-HTB550 confounds expectations. The system, which comprises a wireless subwoofer, 95cm soundbar and dedicated audio processor, looks decidedly utilitarian yet it sounds like a mini multiplex.
Two HDMI inputs mean you can hook up both games console/disc player plus a set top box, and system is Bluetooth compatible too.
Very good sound, a couple of minor flaws
I got this as part of a promotional deal with my LG 47LM6700 3D TV. It is not being used with that TV since I have a proper surround setup in my family room. I am using it in my bedroom with the Samsung TV the LG replaced. One thing about sound bars is that they usually need to be placed in a square or rectangular room to get a good simulated surround effect. My bedroom is sort of an odd shape so I wasn't expecting much.
Impressive bass performance
The LG NB3520A is a strong soundbar offering from LG. It looks attractive, and thanks to its reasonably-sized display, it's also easy to use. The system offers a good range of features too, with Bluetooth support a particularly welcome addition. The 300 watt total power output also means it's capable of delivering neighbour bothering levels of audio even when used in larger rooms. While the 3D sound mode could be better, on the whole it delivers satisfying sonics.
Large, versatile sound
As an upgrade to basic TV sound, the LG is more than a just step up â?? it
offers a quality and authority thatâ??s very impressive. The Â£250 price-tag is equally convincing â?? and this soundbar set-up is definitely worth every penny.
