Wireless Music Streaming

With the HTB550, you can enjoy high-quality home theater sound when the television is turned off. With the Wireless Music Streaming with Bluetooth function, you can listen to your favorite music from Bluetooth-compatible devices without having to plug the device into a docking station or hook it into the sound system.

Multi-Positional Speakers

The HTB550 features a slim and stylish design with multi-positional, detachable speakers for flexible layout options in the home. You can choose a modern horizontal layout for a wall mount set-up or TV-sized stand, or detach to create two separate freestanding vertical speakers for a classic tabletop style. It is equipped with a wireless subwoofer so you can freely place it anywhere in a room without concern for messy wiring.

Wireless Subwoofer

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. The down firing subwoofer produces powerful bass which is achieved through the downward release of sound from the speaker unit and port. With clear-mode dialog, the HTB550 delivers dialog that is crisp and clear. Additionally, Dialog Level Control lets users adjust audio range frequency so dialog is enhanced and stands out from surround sound. The Anti-Jitter Digital Amplifier eliminates distortion to clearly direct sound to produce pure, brilliant audio. Lastly, Auto Gain Control provides users a smooth, automatic adjustment of volume between a movie or TV show and commercial, reducing sudden volume increases.


The HTB550 features VIERA Link which allows users to operate their VIERA Link compatible Audio/Video products with one remote. It also features 3D Signal compatibility for easy configuration of a Full HD 3D home theater system by combining a 3D Blu-ray Disc player and 3D VIERA TV, and Audio Return Channel (ARC) which offers users the ability to connect to a television system with just one HDMI cable and avoid messy cabling around a TV unit.

High Quality Stainless Mesh

A luxurious, stainless mesh design makes this speaker unit visible for a unique design concept to enhance the ambiance of a home theater system?s high-quality sound.

Energy Star Qualified
