Questions & Answers

Features we love


We think this box of tricks is great. But, don’t just take our word for it, check out the awards this clever unit has won from industry experts. Recommendations from Trusted Reviews don’t come lightly so this product really can take a bow!


You get a combined 250 Watts from the speaker and subwoofer, delivering awesome clear sounds and solid bass. The Clear-Mode Dialogue and Dialogue Level Control means the dialogue cuts through the sound so you’re not straining to hear it over the action. The down-firing wireless subwoofer achieves powerful bass by releasing the sound downward from the speaker unit and port, which also uses the sound reflected from the floor to give you great audio.


Connect your telly to the soundbar using either an optical or HDMI cable - there isn't one included in the box so you will need to add one to your basket.  Click here to have a look at our range of cables. There's also a HDMI output. The subwoofer is wireless so can be positioned anywhere in the room - you'll just need to plug it into a power source! You can also connect your smartphone or tablet to the sound system via Bluetooth so you can send your music wirelessly. If you have a new Panasonic TV you can control your sound system with the same remote control by simply pressing the Viera Link button to introduce them.

Get that Cinema Experience

I really like the look of this soundbar and subwoofer. It would look great around any pieces of technical kit. The subwoofer appears just a shade smaller than I expected and I think it maybe lacks that tiny bit of bass to give you that ultimate cinema experience but between the sound bar and the subwoofer you get 250 watt of power that makes it come pretty close. In fairness I do have a very big living room which is hard to fill. It has manual controls to the right hand side but these are not needed as it comes with a very responsive remote control that also comes with batteries. I think all appliances that need batteries and connection cables should come supplied with what is required. Which brings me nicely to my next point, you need an HDMI cable to connect the soundbar and it is not supplied, tut tut Panasonic, you don't know how annoying it is to get home with your new device and find you need another cable. Although the subwoofer is wireless you will still need to connect the power cables (supplied). What does come in the box is wall mountable brackets which are very handy, especially if you want to mount it on the wall under your TV. If you connect the soundbar correctly to the HDMI slot (ARC marked) then this is as close as you can get to plug and play. I'm more than happy to recommend this soundbar and subwoofer as it has got nice modern style that can deliver a deep rich sound.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Value for money

Quality Sound

What a high quality product for an amazing price. The sound bar gives a quality sound great for the money I would highly recommend it.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Value for money


read the reviews and I must admit I was sceptical about buying this, but I was far from disappointed and fully agree with all the great reviews, I have a SONOS system for my normal audio which is great sound with the right speakers, but I was blown away with the depth that this soundbar creates! another fantastic product from Panasonic which I am a huge fan of, thumbs up from me!!

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, sound quality, Value for money Cons: None

See My Review of Panasonic TV TX-40CX680B

This product is linked to the above TV It is designed as such to be paired with a Panasonic TV The sound from this sound bar IS excellent BUT the logistics of connection is flawed. The main digital optical cable set up is fine The big BUT is the remote pairing of the sound bar to the TV via a cheap sticky tape adhesive optical eye that you point on the rear of the sound bar aiming at the on off red green light of the TV Then there is the popping noise many mention when using certain APPS such as Netflix You Tube you get a pop from the speaker every time you point the remote to action a command on the APP So in isolation the product deserves a 4/5 but in isolation not really functional! Twinned up with TV only 3/5 as the links and some of the connections will stretch your patience.

Well worth the money.

Although it only cost a small sum this soundbar performs well beyond its small price tag. Don't misunderstand though, it's not hi fi but you do get a great sound for your money. It's easy to connect too and has a good quality finish and appearance. Would recommend to anyone who wants to improve their TV sound without breaking the bank.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Value for money Cons: None

Fantastic sound quality

I bought this to compensate for poor sound quality on an otherwise great TV, it's amazing no need to have the volume turned up so high. I like that the subwoofer is wireless so we can place it anywhere we want.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Value for money Cons: None
