A guide to Getting the Best from your Panasonic Soundbar and TV
A new television feels like a new window into the world. It will most likely be better than your old one in several ways - bigger, better looking, and most likely packed full of wonderful things such as an ultra-HD 4k OLED display, incredible colours, and a wealth of connectivity options. Exciting times are ahead, but where on earth would you start to ensure you get the very best out of it?
Without a doubt, one of the most essential things to make your TV viewing experience even better from day one is your wireless soundbar. It can mean the difference between simply watching something and immersing yourself in it, the difference between consuming your content and engaging with it, and instead of just hearing your sounds, enjoying them whilst marvelling at the quality.
But where do you start the task of setting up your home cinema system, do you need to call a specialist, or spend time moving everything in your home around? Do you need to fit wires and cables around your hard-earned and much-loved fixtures and fittings?
Don’t worry... Setting up a soundbar with your Panasonic TV is quick and simple, and the path to enjoying incredible surround sound is thankfully short and easy to navigate with just a few simple hints and tips.
The standalone speaker that comes as standard for Panasonic’s new for 2019 range of HTB soundbars is generally referred to as the subwoofer. It is best placed not too far away from your TV and soundbar to optimise cinematic sound and create a powerful, immersive bass. The Panasonic HTB range also features the added benefit of wireless connectivity. So no bothersome, unsightly connection cords, just pristine audio from a wireless speaker system that is easy to set up.
HDMI is typically the most effective, advanced connection option due to the amounts of data it can transfer compared to old fashioned optical input and output. HDMI ARC (audio return channel) which is available on Panasonic’s new for 2019 HTB range goes one better. Allowing other equipment such as compatible Blu-ray players to connect directly to your soundbar and send your content back to your HDMI ARC compatible TV using just one single cable. Fewer cables equals less fuss.
The new for 2019 HTB range of Panasonic soundbars are much more than the perfect wireless home cinema system. The Panasonic HTB510, for example, comes with the newly equipped ChromeCast built-in. That means easy access to your music from all your favourite streaming services in hi-res audio and multi-room sync with smart speakers like the Panasonic GA10 with the Google assistant built in and other devices around your home, simply by adding your soundbar to your Google home app.
Put aside those concerns and take the plunge. Incredible audio, the latest technology and a stylish, dynamic home TV sound system is here, connecting your home and making you wonder why on earth you waited so long.
