Are you looking for a sound bar solution for your home theater system this year? Panasonic seems to have just the thing for you and presents two new sound bars for 2012.
The 2012 sound bars from Panasonic bring superior sound quality to the table and cover all design options available, featuring both vertical and horizontal placement.
The Panasonic SC-HTB550 sound bar has been designed for large screen displays while the SC-HTB20 sound bar has been designed for smaller displays.
Panasonic's SC-HTB550 and SC-HTB20 sound bars can be placed on the floor next to your display or you could choose to place them horizontally or vertically on your wall.
The SC-HTB550 is dedicated to displays larger than 42-inches while the the SC-HTB20 has been designed to complement the sound experience for displays between 32 and 37-inches wide.
The Panasonic SC-HTB550 also comes with Bluetooth connectivity so you can wirelessly stream music from your smartphone, tablet or any other Bluetooth-enabled device. There are also a few new technologies coming with the SC-HTB550 including MASH which eliminates noise distortion and jitter as well as Clear-Mode Dialogue system that makes speech a lot clearer for the human ear.
There's also a wireless subwoofer that you can place anywhere you want and you'll have to connect the SC-HTB550 through HDMI ARC in order to control the volume through your HDTV's remote control.
Both the Panasonic SC-HTB550 and the SC-HTB20 sound bars will be arriving in the Spring of 2012. The company hasn't released any pricing information yet.
