Panasonic SC-HTB65 2.1 Sound Bar

Product information

The Panasonic SC-HTB65 sound bar is the perfect solution to weaker flat screen TV speakers. Understated design allows it to sit comfortably beneath your TV, while a 2.1 channel system helps to create more immersive sound. A built-in sensor makes this sound bar ideal for placing on a stand or wall mounting.

Key benefits:

  • By rotating the bar 90-degrees, two types of layout are possible – wall-mounted and TV with stand. A built-in sensor automatically detects the bar direction and switches the directional characteristics to suit the layout.
  • Clear-mode Dialog gives the sound greater depth. It also makes voices sound like they’re coming from the centre of the screen. Dialogue volume is adjustable to four levels. This function is great for when dialogue is drowned out by the surround sound and is difficult to hear.
  • Support for Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS helps to squeeze the very best sound you’re your media.
  • A low profile finish allows this sound bar to blend in with your home cinema setup.

Q & As

Panasonic SC-HTB65 2.1 Sound Bar 4.5 5 6 6
Great visual match to the Panasonic TV Much improved sound quality from the soundboard versus the TV. Easy to fit onto the wall with good instructions. Like many reviewers I had to buy optical cable separately which should be included in my opinion as you have to buy the unit then check the fitting and then track down the correct cable. 04 February 2014
Brilliant Buy Excellent piece of kit, easy to fit and what a difference to the sound. Well done John Lewis for your swift delivery. 14 January 2014
Great sound quality The sound quality is really great. We bought this at the Milton Keynes John Lewis where the were very nice and extremely busy. Unfortunately we weren't aware that we needed an optical sound cable (which we later purchased from another shop), nor was it obvious how to connect the cable to the TV/sound bar. We then phoned the John Lewis help desk who were very good and sorted us out. It seems we weren't the first to encounter this problem. Perhaps the store staff could say which additional cables are required. 28 December 2013
Good Product Sound bar is great and does produce great sound quality, but it doesn't have an onscreen menu and you can't see the lights when it is lying under the t.v., also it didn't come with a lead to plug into the t.v. so had purchase to purchase a separate lead. Other than that we are pleased with the product, fantastic when watching movies. 17 December 2013
no real complaints easy to order and another Panasonic corker of a product.Only concern J.L. should have told me I needed Lead but suppose if I'd bought in store they would have done. 26 November 2013
Panasonic SC-HTB65 2.1 Sound Bar I have found this sound bar which I am using with a Sony Bravia too be very good Its not a surround sound, but it gives a crisp clear sound in cinema, music and stadium and the sound remains constant in all modes where as the TV can be a bit tinny and needs adjusting. And John Lewis service delivered to my local Waitrose was spot on. Well Done 23 October 2013
