Great product!

Why they sell the new very thin style TV's without soundbars is beyond me. The sound is improved immeasurably and to have a tv without one is being short changed. Before the sound was so muffled I had ro put the volume up to 75% so here what was being said. Not any more. The sound is clear and I don't know how I managed without it. I did a lot of research into which soundbarvto go for. I'm not very techy minded so got my son to se t up for me but seemed easy enough. One of the things I have read about other reviews is that sometimes they don't sync with tv properly. It put me off buying a soundbar for some weeks after I had decided to purchase one. I can only think this might be because people aren't turning off their tv volumns so that you are only listening through the sound bar. I could be wrong, like I said I'm not techy minded. I have had no problems like that with this product. Only thing is the base is very low, but think this might be more to do with my settings than the product. Would definitely recommend this product. Make sure you buy a separate HDMI cable to go with it. 1 metre long is adequate.


Great Sound Bar from Panasonic. A1 quality as expected.


Purchased this soundbar package after recovering an up selling call from the purchase of a tv. Initially the phone fine but at the end cornered and some insurance taken without really knowing about it no conversation of would you like only there you have this as well and direct debit will be etc etc. Agreed on the telephone that delivery would be requested after three this did not happen either note not placed on or delivery driver lying saying no info for that given. Arrived at 14:00 refused to wait even seemed too much trouble to leave with neighbour although did eventually. Just a shame as everything was fine except these two things if wasn’t more savvy would expect the insurance to be paid for by many without really understanding or knowing about it.

Lovely product arrived on time and delivered as ever efficiently sounds great too can’t recommend AO enough buy all my electric items from them never let me down

Panasonic SC-HTB488EBK Bluetooth Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer

The soundbar is a definite piece of kit for any TV, a really rich sound with plenty of adjustment on the bass, with different sound settings for people who like there own personal choice with a remote so no need to get up and down. Looks good with easy setup and fittings to put up on wall which I did above TV seems to throw out sound really well. It really comes into play watching your favorite movies and if your neighbors don't mind you can crank it up like your in the cinema. With a excellent price point and the quality of sound and looks to go with it you really can't go wrong, love it.

Outstanding Products
