Sleek enough to fit neatly with your TV but with enough power to make its presence felt, the Panasonic SCHTB488 soundbar is the perfect match for your sleek TV.

A huge improvement in sound

With larger than average speaker drive units, the Panasonic SCHTB488 gives a fuller and richer sound than many rivals. The difference between the Panasonic and the vast majority of TVs is night and day in terms of sound quality. Due to the broad width and clever shaping, the sound is also broader and far more spacious than your average TV, too.

Powerful bass from the wireless subwoofer
The separate subwoofer uses a downward firing cone to add impact to movie soundtracks and high drama events. It also features a wireless connection, making it easy to tuck out of the way, without having to consider where to put the trailing cables.

Stream music via Bluetooth
As well as making your TV sound great, the SCHT-B488 also offers effortless Bluetooth music streaming. Simply pair your device and stream music from your smartphone, tablet or Bluetooth-equipped laptop or desktop. Stream your music library or use a music streaming service such as Spotify, Pandora or the iPlayer Radio.

Panasonic Music Streaming App
If you’ve got an Android Smartphone then streaming music to the soundbar is even easier. Simply download the free app from the Google Play store and take control of both stored music and streaming services with one simple app.

HDMI with ARC for system flexibility
With an HDMI input you can connect up your Blu-ray player, DVD or games console with the best quality digital connection. Thanks to ARC (Audio Return Channel) you also 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 that might not have an HDMI connection.

Give your TV the sound it deserves, with the Panasonic SCHTB488.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value 2.1 home cinema sound system I was unable to really compare the sound with other products in the shop so I purchased this model because it suits my small lounge, the subwoofer is compact and can be hidden under a coffee table and it was relatively cheap. The sound quality is very good especially when watching a movie and it really enhances the experience with surround sound and bass you can feel. Bluetooth allows alternative sources of music from mobile devices. There are 5 preset sound settings that slightly change the audio output. Occasionally there have been 'lip sinc' problems when watching Freeview programmes which could be due to TV antenna issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it's intended to do, superbly As this appears to be a fairly new model, I could find no reviews, so I purchased on trust. I have a Panasonic TV, purchased last year from Richer Sounds, and felt that they would surely be compatible. Indeed they are. Easy to set up and the sound quality of the TV with this soundbar is much improved, it even picks up minuscule background sounds which hitherto would have gone unnoticed. Fed up of 'the mumbling' which seems to be a feature of many TV dramas lately, this soundbar does the trick of enhancing speech brilliantly. My first soundbar so unable to compare to others, but very pleased with my purchase as it's meeting expectations.
