Give your TV a boost in sound, with the compact and stylish Panasonic SC-HTB258 soundbar and sub.

Compact and stylish
Narrower than most other soundbars, the Panasonic SCHTB258 fits where other soundbars don’t. If you’ve got a small TV or need something that fits between the TV’s feet, this is the ideal solution. It’s not just the soundbar that’s compact, either. The supplied wireless subwoofer is much slimmer than usual, making it easy to slide underneath or between furniture.

TV-busting sound
It might be compact in size, but that doesn’t stop this Panasonic soundbar from delivering spacious and powerful sound. The soundbar uses stereo speakers and Virtual Surround to project the sound much further than most TV speakers can. With 120 watts power output, there’s also more power than the average TV, giving you a better chance of room-filling sound.

Powerful bass from the wireless 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
Three, dedicated sound modes let you tailor the sound to match your viewing content. Choose Cinema for movies and drama, Music for your favourite tunes 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 from services such as Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer, you’ll always be kept entertained.

Panasonic Music Streaming App
For easy control of your music streaming, simply download the Panasonic Music Streaming app. Now available for Apple iOS and Android devices, the app lets you take control of both stored music and streaming services with one simple app.

HDMI with ARC for system flexibility
Thanks to its HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) connection, you only need a single HDMI cable between soundbar and TV to hear the sound from the TV's onboard receiver. There’s also an optical input for another source, such as a games console or Blu-ray player.

Give your TV’s speakers a break and hear the difference a soundbar can make, with the Panasonic SC-HTB258.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big improvement upon the TVs own sound. Firstly we can't just call this a soundbar review, it's a soundbar plus subwoofer combo. Unfortunately the soundbar does need the subwoofer to sound good so doesn't take up as little space as some soundbars. Having said that, the sound of both together is good. Huge improvement on tv's own sound. I like this a lot. It does take some playing with settings and volumes to get it to sound ideal, subwoofer can be overpowering, it's not the fault of the equipment but the way tv adverts and trailers are produced, very bass boomy for impact, which is annoying when the adverts thump more than most of the tv you're watching. Subwoofer does have a separate volume control though so if you take its level right down you can get a reasonably balanced sound. I'd definitely recommend it for greatly improving the sound of a tv. Got it half price with a Panasonic tv so absolutely recommended to buy this way. If paired and connected via hdmi (arc return channel) volume and on/off can be controlled from the main tv remote which is a bonus. The only real grips or negative: Soundbar is very slow to react to the remote control. There's like a huge lag. Holding down the subwoofer volume buttons it will eventually respond, and then continue to respond after you've taken your finger off the button, like to turn the subwoofer level up or down you hold the button for half a second before it does anything, and it's still carrying out the command half a second after you've released the button. Takes some getting used to, but you only really use the soundbar's own remote control a lot during setup to tailor it to how you like it to sound, so I can live with that. The volume control on the tv itself isn't lag free, just one of those things with smart tvs that are heavily software controlled. My old (non-smart) Samsung tv was much quicker to respond to the remote control than my new Panasonic tv, my smart LG tv has a much longer lag/delay, which is really annoying, so compared to that the Panasonic isn't too bad. Overall I'm very pleased with the purchase of this soundbar / subwoofer combo, it has transformed the tv sound and for that reason that I do recommend it. *Note there is a mistake in the specs in the advert. The weight of the soundbar & subwoofer isn't 1.6kg, it's a far more substantial 7.6kg (which is nice).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Value for Good Quality Bought to fit in to an awkward front room that has no scope for a multiple speaker system, it just so happened that the unit fit perfectly into the oddly shaped base stand of my TV. The speaker is crisp and clear with fantastic range, the sub level is separately adjustable so I could get the right mix for the room

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Television sound improvement On receiving and installing this product over a month ago, it still surprises me on the vast improvement over the OE sound system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact design I’ve had this for a couple of weeks now and can’t fault it. I have a Panasonic Tv that sits quite low on the stand that limits the height of the sound bar I can fit there. This fits perfectly, hides all the wires behind it and together with the Blutooth bass sounds great. The order and delivery service from Richer sounds was exceptional. I ordered in the afternoon and it came the next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice compact soundbar I bought this a couple of weeks ago to fit under my Panasonic tv. Fits perfectly as the tv is quite low so I was limited to what would fit. The sound is great and is helped by the Blutooth bass speaker. Everything connected easily and it switched on when I turn on the sky Q and tv. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit Brilliant sound from a small footprint. The HDMI - ARC made setting up really easy. There is a separate remote, but it now works with my TV remote. The wireless subwoofer is bassy enough to give depth of sound and no more wires. It may not be the most powerful sound bar and subwoofer but it is certainly adequate to make movies and music enjoyable. As usual, superb service from Richer Sounds.
