Powerful sound meets sleek style, with the Panasonic SC-HTB490 soundbar.

Hear what you’ve been missing from your TV
Featuring stereo speakers and a punchy 160w amp, the SC-HTB490 soundbar delivers crystal-clear sound that most TVs would struggle to match. Virtual Surround gives a spacious and immersive sound that brings the action out into your room.

Powerful bass from dedicated subwoofer
For the full cinema at home effect, this Panasonic soundbar is also supplied with a wireless subwoofer. The sub uses a dedicated bass woofer within a bass reflex cabinet, producing the low-down sound that you feel as much as hear. Feeling the full force of the movie brings it to life and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Tailor the sound with Sound Modes
Five, dedicated sound modes let you tailor the sound to match your viewing content. Choose Cinema for movies, Sports for the big game, Music for your favourite tunes, News for the clearest speech or simply select Standard for the ideal all-round setting.

Stream your audio via Bluetooth
Bluetooth connectivity lets you pair your smartphone, tablet or other device and stream your favourite streaming music services, stored music or podcasts. With a near unlimited supply of music on services such as Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer, you’ll always be kept entertained.

The perfect partner for your Panasonic TV
Designed to blend harmoniously with most TVs, the SC-HTB490 looks its best when paired with a Panasonic. It’s engineered to fit between the feet of most Panasonic TVs, giving a seamless style and the best sync between sound and vision.

Wall mountable
If you have your TV wall mounted, then it’s easy to wall mount this soundbar, too. Designed to mount just beneath your TV, without leaving a large gap, the soundbar simply hooks into place using the supplied screws.

Get the sound your TV deserves, with the Panasonic SC-HTB490.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this one! Look no further!! I did hours of research and am delighted beyond words. Richer Sounds were fantastic on service, price and delivery. Nothing was too much trouble. These guys are the cheapest and best! The sound bar is amazing! Bluetooth connection is instant every time. 6 year warranty with Richer Sounds, so I have no worries at all. I got Hdmi cable to connect from them too. Great quality! Next day delivery was astounding. The sub woofer is awesome. I read one review that said you need to be a detached house and they are certainly right!!!!!!! I paid £149 and got a terrific bargain! VIP guest, definitely do that! The sound is amazing, everything is amazing. I can find no fault other than I have to have the sub woofer on minimum level unless I know my neighbours are away!! (because I'm being considerate; ) ). Buy this one you will not be disappointed. By the way I have a Panasonic TV so wanted the same brand for sound connection purposes. Set up was done in under 5 minutes and I was being thorough! Superb! Thank you Richer Sounds!! Thank you Austin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality, deep bass and clear voice I have owned for several weeks and am very pleased with the overall sound. The sub woofer provides good bass and is very controlable so as to not overwhelm the sound quality. Voice is very clear and a big improvement over the standard TV and my previous sound bar. It also looks good and fits in nicely on the TV stand. For the price point a very good buy which I am very happy with. As ever delivery from Richersounds was fast and on time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sound you should be hearing. Purchased this sound system to compliment the Panasonic TX65JX940B TV. The sound is superb with deep, rich bass which you can feel as well as hear. There are several sound modes but my personal preference for films and music is the music mode. Speech is nice and clear ( clearer than cinema mode) and overall tone is stunning. For the money this is the one that I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top service, great sound It's a little quirky switching on - not always the default sound (user error!!) but it's a great addition to our Panasonic telly. Just waiting to put some music DVDs through it.
