Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Soundbar Considered buying this for 3 months for are new 4k smart tv, really pleased that I bit the bullet and purchased. Fairly easy to set up. Great sound for the price and matches are Panasonic 50 inch TV perfectly. Not really a soundbar fan but I have had to eat my words. Base on Sub Woofer does need to be turned down

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for $$$ Great value for money, audio quality is great and connectivity to tv is a breeze. Tested a number of sound bars in store and there wasn’t much of a difference in quality. Easily fills our 20m2 lounge space with ease. Bass from the sub is great as well. Makes watching TV and movies much better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Creates more issues than it’s worth Main issues are sound delay so it’s quite out of sync with voice, even after changing some settings as directed byPanasonic. Also voice is muffled so it is harder to hear voices in some settings. Good as a stereo for music.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Bought this last month. Sounds good but doesn’t connect with my LG tv that great. Need to turn on both the sound bar and tv separately to use it but can’t turn it on at the same time so have to wait for the tv to turn on first. Ends up taking 30s to have any sound. More hassle then it’s worth so stopped using it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent soundbar and bass The sound quality is very good for the price, and the bass is powerful but still balanced. Wireless sub is very convenient, but it's larger than I expected. Make sure your TV supports HDMI ARC and CEC functions so that the TV remote can control the soundbar volume.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good soundbar and subwoofer - good price. I have a Panasonic and so intergrating this soundbar was a breeze. It does the job and did not cost a fortune. The subwoofer is amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound for the Price Got this for a bargain. Nothing wrong with the sound and loud enough for movies and music for us. Nice Subwoofer bass. Only drama is that I can’t transfer sound to my TV Remote because I have a Samsung Tv and Apple IPhone so have to use the Soundbar Remote to turn tv down. Would recommend to others if you are looking to improve the tinny sounds on your TV.
