Panasonic SC-HTB20EB 2.1 Sound Bar

Product information

Enjoy terrific audio quality while saving on space with the Panasonic SC-HTB20EB-K sound bar. Discreet enough to blend in with most types of TV, it can also function as a single unit or be split in two depending on your setup. Complete with a separate subwoofer, you’ll feel every detail of the on-screen action.

Key benefits:

  • With a total output of 240 Watts this sound bar will add room-filling 2.1 audio to all your movies and games with ease. 
  • The single and two part setups let you immerse yourself in your entertainment however you want. Create a more dramatic surround sound effect, or wall mount for a more streamlined appearance. The choice is yours.
  • A down-firing subwoofer can be moved about the room for deeper, bass-filled soundtracks. Enjoy more immersive music and feel every detail of the action.
  • ARC compatibility eliminates the need for a separate audio cable to bring sound back from a TV to your home cinema system for less clutter and better audio quality.
  • The integrated digital amp has been built for jitter-free play, even at higher volumes.

Q & As


Panasonic SC-HTB20EB 2.1 Sound Bar 4.5 5 31 31
Good value for the money For the price, this is a good purchase, compared to other product s in the market with similar functionality. It lacks more flexibility in quality settings. 15 April 2014
Panasonic Sound Bar SC-HTB20EB 2.1 Fantastic product! After spending many months looking at the sound bars that are available, we decided on this product. The bar itself splits in half and can be used as 2 uprights, In our case this way works really well.They 'blend in' really well. The sound effect is great. One other note of interest, the sales assistant was brilliant, she certainly knew the products!!!! 19 February 2014
Panasonic SC-HTB20EB 2.1 Sound Bar Does everything that is promised. Could have a wider base range but then it is only one box. Super. 11 February 2014
sound quality I picked this item because the sound on my tv was a bit muffled and this was recommended by Which as the best. My aim was to have speech that was as clear as someone talking directly to me. Of course you can tell the difference. However it is a vast improvement and in fact quite impressive. For me the sub woofer is a bit too woofy. If you have difficulty hearing what actors are saying then this will solve the problem. It is excellent for modern music. 04 February 2014
Panasonic SC-HTB20EB 2.1 Soundbar Very good powerful sound. Easy to install. Neat and adaptable. Once set up, works from the Panasonic TV remote and as a bonus stops the annoying sound increase during advert breaks. For the price you will find this system hard to beat. Check it out in the showrooms. 08 January 2014
Sound Bar a Resounding Success We bought this Panasonic product with some doubts about its possible benefits, however it delivers exactly what it claims. In particular it provides a new dimension and perspective to television, giving it a new breadth and depth of sound, quite apart from enhancing all dialogue. 05 January 2014
Surround sound from a bar This system is superb. When you revert to the TV's system you realise why you bought it. The bass is superb as well, really bringing out the depth of sound. It has been easy to set up as we have a Panasonic TV, so the remote works for both. Well worth the money. 30 December 2013
AMAZING DIFFERENCE I purchased a Sony tv and the sound was appalling, very muffled. Bought this and took about 30 minutes to sort out and the difference is amazing, especially on films and music with sounds like doors shutting you never usually hear. The speech is also clear and everything is fine. Very small and neat bar with larger speaker which has wires out which you may want to hide. The price is amazing as well, £80 cheaper than Panasonic sell it for and also the return option from John Lewis if you don't like it. Any down points, just the remote which is small and you need to use it once set up as TV volume wont work on tv handset afterwards. Make sure you have an ARC HDMI slot on your tv and you can see this as its written under the HDMI connection point. If not you need an optical cable. No leads in the box so you will need one HDMI for the sound bar and one for your virgin box in my case and then one for all the extras you have like DVD etc. i was a bit dubious of these bars but believe me you wont believe the difference it makes. 30 November 2013
