Panasonic’s new SC-HTB550 & SC-HTB20 sound bars can be arranged horizontally or vertically, mounted on the wall or a stand or detached for set up on a table or the floor. The SC-HTB550 is designed for 42-inch TVs and above, and the SC-HTB20 is designed for smaller 32 to 37-inch TVs.

SC-HTB550 comes with Bluetooth so you can wirelessly stream your music from your Bluetooth-equipped smartphone or laptop. Both sound bars also boast a Clear-Mode Dialogue system to make speech clear, and MASH (multi-stage noise shaping) technology that eliminates jitter and noise distortion.

The wireless sub woofer can be positioned anywhere in the room, and the sound bar is connected to a TV via HDMI. Because HDMI ARC (audio return channel) is supported, volume is controlled via the TV remote.
