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 Panasonic 55inch after buying a 50inch Panasonic which had some issues, I was disappointed but various staff at the Bournemouth branch dealt with the problem very understandingly & I'm now in possession of a gorgeous Panasonic 55inch oleb and a compatible sound bar. very pleased with the outcome'

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reasonable sound but very poor UI The sound is ok but the control is dire. There is no feedback at where in the range the volume or bass adjustments are and no confirmation as to which of the 5 general sound styles you have chosen. A simple segmented LED display could have been added to the design for less than a dollar. Also, the 1 page quick start guide is really poor... download the manual. On the positive side, at least you don't need to have a mobile phone in order to control it.
