Panasonic Sound Bar Home Theater System With Wireless Subwoofer, Model SCHTB550

Key Features:

  • Multi-positional Speaker Layout
  • Wireless- Music Streaming with Bluetooth
  • Clear Mode Dialog


  • True to Cinema Sound Quality
    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 theater.
  • Multi-Positional SpeakersOptional layout
    This speaker can be split into two by removing the connecting hardware in the center. 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.
  • 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.
  • Wireless Music Streaming
    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.
  • Clear-mode Dialog and Dialog Level Control
    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 center of the screen. Dialog 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.

    Not a Bose but a good sound system


    from Flagstaff, AZ

    Verified Buyer


    • Easy Set Up
    • Good appearance


    • Confusing adjustments

    Best Uses

      I purchased the HTB550 system to improve the sound on my plasma tv, especially when I play Pandora. After playing with the various settings, I got it to sound pretty good. My only complaint is that the soundbar does block the remote control sensor on the front of the tv. I got around this problem by placing the soundbar legs on the tv pedestal, but the top of the soundbar slightly blocks the bottom of the tv picture. The sound quality is definitely not as good as a Bose system, but at a quarter of the price it is a good value for the money.
