Panasonic sc-ht880ebk soundbar with wireless sub. . This would have got 5 stars if only the so called 3d surround feature actually worked. This is a great piece of kit, it has a very clear sound, speech is easy to hear and understand. It also has a decent amount of bass from the simple wireless sub. It has plenty of features for setting up the sound to how you like it, and is especially usefull as it comes on when you turn your tv on and goes off when you turn your tv off, great. But unfortunately the so called 3d surround is almost totally non existent. Stereo is pretty good, even music sounds pretty good through it. If you want surround sound though you’d probably be better off going for the sony ht rt5 instead. My only other gripe is that the connections to the soundbar are fiddly, particularly if you have expensive hdmi cables with big plugs and stiff cable. Generally though it is a great soundbar, particularly if you have it sitting on the top of a unit in front of your tv firing upwards, siting it this way gives the best sound because it sounds like it is coming from the tv instead of underneath it, which can be the case with some soundbars, they sound detached, this doesn’t.

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • 5.1ch Speaker Construction for Theatre Like Surround with 500W Output Power
  • Downfiring Wireless Subwoofer
  • Wireless Audio Streaming with Bluetooth and NFC
  • Stainless Speaker Mesh
  • 2x HDMI Input Connections

I really expected all – singing, all- dancing integration with and enhancement of my new panasonic tv, but my joy is limited by the clunky interface, and 10 second delay in the sound starting when switching input devices.

I would recommend it to anyone. Superb sound quality, crystal clear. I would recommend it to anyone.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Excellent sounding home cinema experience
  • Great Soundbar from Panasonic & much better than having speakers
  • Panasonic SC-HT880EBK soundbar with wireless sub.

A little awkward to wall mount but when finished it looks great, works brilliant sounds even better.Well i couldn’t have done better, saved a fortune, having a wireless subwoofer is a bonus you place it where you want. I’ve always been able to rely on amazon.

Excellent sounding home cinema experience. This was purchased to compliment my new panasonic vierra 4k tv tx-65dx902b as it supports 4k pass through. It is supplied in an extremely large box which is mainly packaging. Once opened the soundbar is a smart and quite compact item along with the subwoofer. Very easy to set up two power leads and a hdmi cable (not supplied) to connect from the soundbar to the arc enabled hdmi socket of the tv. As soon as i switched it on, a brief pause as the tv volume muted, the soundbar system activated. I was then able to control the volume using the tv remote control. There is also a small remote supplied which you can use to change the mode amongst other things, but you need to get up close to the soundbar to read the digital display. The sound is exhilarating and totally brings to life anything on the screen. I was was watching tv at the standard setting and changed to cinema mode to watch a blu-ray film.

Great soundbar from panasonic & much better than having speakers. Great soundbar from panasonic & much better than having speakers round the room with all the wires. Have only a small room so this is perfect. Good sound & good bass, very rarely have full bass on cause don’t want to frighten the neighbours. Given it 4 stars because no screws to fix wall bracket on wall. Came with the bracket so thought it a bit tight of them. First time with a soundbar, its not brilliant 5. 1 surround sound, if i had a bigger room then maybe i would invest in a good system but i think this is perfect for the smaller room. Don’t really use it for music as have couple of sonos speakers.

Love this soundbar & matches my tv width perfectly. Also using it to listen to music from my mobilewhilst not a cheap soundbar i think it is worth paying a little extra for something with better quality than the lower endsoundbars. A few words of caution though, you’ll need to buy cables to plug into your tv as they don’t come with. Also the remote is a tiny diddly thing and easy to loose which i did within a week. If you do loose the remote you can easily order a replacement from somewhere like partsmaster (i ordered two – one replacement for the lost one and one spare).
