Relish a cinematic sound experience with Panasonic’s SC-HTB490, which features Bluetooth connectivity and a separate wireless subwoofer. It takes your TV watch to the next level, five dedicated sound modes makes sure audio is optimised depending on the content, and you can stream music to it from your smart device.

Powerful, cinematic sound
This 2.1 channel speaker system packs 320W of high-quality audio power. Dual stereo speakers and a separate wireless subwoofer deliver rich, rounded, detailed sound to upgrade your TV’s audio. Two 4.5cm x 12cm full-range speakers ensure clarity and provide a sound that's bigger than you would expect of the soundbar's size.

Wireless sub bass power
With no cable connecting it to the soundbar (just the power cable), the sub-woofer can be placed anywhere in the room for maximum impact. It gives dynamic, rumbling sub-bass frequencies, adding power and realism to your entertainment, whether it's high octane sports action or a rousing classical concert.

Bluetooth streaming
Built-in Bluetooth means you can pair your smart device and stream your music wirelessly from your phone or tablet. Give your favourite tunes an awesome audio makeover too.

Five dedicated sound modes
Select the sound mode for the type of content you're watching. Choose between Cinema, Sports, Music, News and Standard for a specially tailored audio profile.

Universal design
Minimal design blends into the surrounding area at home, and matches modern TV design, for a seamless look of unity in your home entertainment set up.

Don't forget...
If you want to connect the soundbar to your TV, blu-ray player or games console then you'll need a HDMI cable.
