About Me Practical
Comments about Panasonic Black 3.1 Channel Home Theater Sound Bar System:
I have a Panasonic Viera Plasma TV which is the reason I purchased this item. (compatibility). Setup was simple using the HDMI ARC. Speakers can go almost anywhere except in front of the TV because they block the TV remote control signal. As for the soundbar remote control, it needs major improvement. Also, unless you sit very close to the TV you can't tell which mode the receiver is in. Sound from the system is good.Cons: About 1/2 the time, the picture on the TV has static on the top & the bottom of the screen along with white dots. Panasonic's site indicates a firmware update which I downloaded and attempted to install w/o success. Called Panasonic and tech said they would get back to me. They didn't. Called ABT tech service. They didn't understand the problem but told me to return the system for exchange which I did. Same problem. Works perfectly 1/2 the time and has picture static the other 1/2 the time. When I get the static I turn the system off and use the TV speakers. After awhile I turn it back on and it works perfectly. I am going to try the firmware update again. Hope it works this time. Because of these problems, I cannot recommend this product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
