Clear TV Sound Reproduction
With clear-mode dialog, the voice will sound more from the center of the TV display. With more precise linking between the picture and the sound, the dialog voices and vocals in movies and music can be enjoyed with clearer sound.
Advanced Bamboo Cone Speaker
Clear, Beautiful Vocals
With the new bamboo cone speakers the sound becomes more responsive. Vocals are purer and clearer, and the dialog is crisper and easier to understand than ever before.
Slim Single Bar-type and Easy Connection
Easy Installation with Low-Noise Bass Sound
Setting up the SC-HTB10 sound bar is easy and simple. Just place it in front of the TV and connect to the TV and a Blu-ray Disc™ player with HDMI cables. The SC-HTB10 realizes realistic live sound which cannot be experienced with TV speakers.
Audio Return Channel (ARC)
Simple Connection with HDMI Cable
The SC-HTB10 is compatible with a new feature of Audio Return Channel (ARC). ARC allows receiving audio signals from the TV, on top of the preexisting HDMI function of sending audio/video signals to the TV with just one cable. This new feature will simplify the connection by eliminating an audio cable connection between TV audio output and the main unit's audio input.

As my TV has an ARC connection (the sound bar is connected to the TV via a single HDMI cable), I am able to adjust sound volume from my TV, DirecTV, and Panny Blu-Ray remotes--the sound bar also turns on and off when I activate or shut off the TV. So integration is pretty seamless, once you get all the settings correctly entered. Speaking of settings, the directions for changing the TV's settings are awful--they are general to all TVs and not specific for Panasonic products, so you will have to mess around with the menu settings by trial and error in both Audio and Viera Link to synch everything up. In spite of this, set up is actually pretty easy.Read more ›
In addition to the power cable, I've only connected one HDMI cable via the TV's ARC HDMI port, and the unit's ARC HDMI port. That's it. Whatever sound came from the TV is now routed through the soundbar. My cable box, Blu-Ray player, and Wii system all play through the soundbar, with just the one HDMI connection.
Setup took all of 3 minutes, and the sound runs rings around the internal TV speakers. It's nowhere near a full HT surround setup, but at least now I do get to hear the low frequencies and can boost the volume without distortion. It provides a much more pleasant sound environment which is perfect for my somewhat smallish bedroom.
The TV remote can be used to control this soundbar, and my Panasonic Blu Ray player. No need to worry about turning the unit off, because turning the TV off will also turn off the soundbar. In fact, with the Viera link technology, if I want to watch a blu-ray or DVD disc, all I need to do is turn on the blu-ray player. When the disc is read, it will turn on the TV, switch to the proper input for the blu-ray player, and power up the soundbar. Turning off the TV will shut down both the soundbar and blu-ray player. It doesn't get more convenient than this. You can control the volume of the soundbar with the TV remote, which shows an on screen setting.Read more ›
This Panasonic sound bar has ok sound. Much better than the built-in, but it's no substitute for a full-powered home theater system. The best feature of this soundbar is it's ability to use the Panasonic Viera Link and HDMI/ARC features. When you use an HDMI cable to connect the two, the soundbar works perfectly with the TV...no need for another remote to control power or volume, and the TV shows the volume setting and changes on screen.
Recommended for newer Panasonic TV owners who are looking for a simple solution to improve built-in sound, just make sure you use HDMI to connect the two.
Panasonic wasn't so nice. My TV came with an optical output, and built in speakers. The built in speakers were so bad, that it was hard to make out voices, let alone have anything that approached decent sound quality. In all fairness, people who buy HDTVs should not expect great sound for something in the price range of the TV, but considering that they had wires going to the internal speakers, they could have had external terminals for the same wires. People who buy smaller TVs, such as for bedrooms, are less likely to buy full fledged sound systems as add ons.
Panasonic's solution was for me to buy this sound bar. It replaced the terrible sound of the built in speakers with mediocre sound. There's nothing really bad about the sound of this sound bar, but I can't say that it's really much of a step up from what comes built into better TVs. This is the type of sound that I'd normally be replacing with something better, rather than stepping up to. But the way my TV is designed, there's no intermediate option short of this sound bar. You either get a full fledged sound system with an optical input, get this sound bar, or live with the built in speakers.Read more ›
