The new 2013 SC-HTB series of Soundbars can be positioned to suit any room and can be paired with screens ranging from 42-65 inches, allowing consumers to choose the ideal system based on the size of their televisions.  Equipped with wireless or built-in* subwoofers and Bluetooth capabilities, depending on the model, all four models promote an easy, customizable setup and compliment the living space. 

 “The new Soundbars continue Panasonic’s long standing focus on providing innovative, high-quality products consumers look for in a home cinema system ,” said Michael Friedrich, Senior Manager Product Marketing Europe Home AV.  “The new 2013 models are designed to suit various size TVs and deliver an improved, dynamic sound quality to enhance the user’s home entertainment experience.”

The SC-HTB170 model offers a unique, sleek solid bar design for free and flexible layouts.  A user can choose from four types of placements, with wall-mounting capabilities at 90 degrees.  A built-in sensor automatically detects the bar direction and switches the directional characteristics to suit the layout.  With an Anti-Vibration Integrated Subwoofer inside the speaker unit, the SC-HTB170 provides high-quality, clear sound playback in each of its four layouts. 

The SC-HTB770 and SC-HTB570 models sport a luxurious, stainless mesh design that compliments the decor of any room in the home.  With a versatile and stylish design, users can choose a modern horizontal layout for a wall-mount setup or TV-sized stand, or detach to create two separate freestanding vertical speakers for a classic tabletop style. In addition, while providing flexibility in layout, the SC-HTB770 features a 3.1-channel speaker for vivid sound localization and crisp and clear sound sensation.
