SC-HTE80 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 55" tv Really helps with a 55" Panasonic tv. The sound quality was not very good before adding this sound bar. Football games were really bad with crowd noise overriding the commentators. This sound bar was extremely easy to hookup since both are Panasonic brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rich Room Filling Sound I purchased the system on sale. Setup was easy and complemented my Panasonic BD/player and TV. The speaker was recognized by the other components and controls from remotes. I was not impressed with the sound when I first started using it. As I learned the different modes available and tried them I was able to get a rich room filling sound. I feel I made a good purchase for the price and am happy with the space saving design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product, I called a Panasonic Product Specialist before buying as I wanted to be sure it would be a good match for my 47" Panasonic Viera. The Specialist assured me it would be a good match. I ask if I would need any cables to connect to my TV and was told " any cable I would need would come with the product. Imagine my surprise when I opened the box to only find a power cable. I called back to Custer Service and was told " sorry you've received incorrect information. Connecting cables are not included." I went back to the product guide and found what I needed and ordered it from Amazon. Now I'm up and running.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good option We were looking for a simple and economical solution to sound for our plasm Panasonic TV. This fit that need. No additional accessories needed except the cable. We are in a large open room with high ceilings and tile. We can now understand dialog and the overall sound is much better. There are a few settings for the sound - music, cinema, stereo, etc.....not much difference between them. It would be what you would expect if you were able to hook up two speakers to the TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features for the price, Average sound quality I was looking for a sound stand that had ARC support (to connect my TV) and bluetooth / NFC (for mobile) as I listen to quite a bit of music. This seemed like the best option as it doubles as a wireless speaker system and an ARC supported sound stand which reduces the pain of using a second remote. Overall a decent buy - It WILL disappoint you if you are obsessed with sound quality and impress you if you are just looking for a decent, inexpensive sound stand that has all the features and convenience built into it. It is a great improvement over your TV sound and good for everyday use and listening. I am stuck in the middle. Pros: - For the price there were few other products that offered the same features. ARC + NFC + Bluetooth - Tucks in neatly under my TV and is clean - Easy to use and the front display in non-intrusive. Has a dimming mode to prevent the display on the sound stand distracting you away from the TV. Lets you know which mode it is in unlike many other products which have no visual display leaving you unsure of whether the changes you intended have been executed or not. Cons: - The sound quality is not impressive at all in comparison to other products but is a great improvement over the inbuilt TV speakers which of course it ought to be. - Poor bass and reproduction of low frequency sound - Not responsive - Takes a while for the system to respond to any keystroke on the remote. This can be an irritant at times. - Comes only in black for US. Can be a bit of an eyesore if your decor is white. (My wife insisted that I include that :-) ) Silver option is offered in other countries, which might go well with TVs which have a brushed metal finish and lighter tone furniture. - Bland design: Is a perfect cuboid with no character whatsoever. Very functional.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from overpriced for all this product is worth, it seems to me it could have been incorporated into the monitor unit. it definitely does not replace a home theater setup.

  • What do I do in the unit has no power?
    If the unit is not powering on, remove the power cord plug from any power strip it may be connected to and plug directly into the wall outlet.
  • How do I connect a Panasonic home theater system to my TV?
    Panasonic recommends that you use an HDMI cable to connect the HDMI output of your Blu-ray disc player to the HDMI input on your TV. Then place your TV on the correct HDMI input using your TV remote control.
  • What should I do if I am not getting any sound from the center or the right speaker?
    Center Speaker
    Check the speaker wire connection on the back of the unit. Unplug the speaker wire from the back of the unit, and then reinsert it into the center speaker slot on the back of the unit. Next, go to the unit's audio settings and perform a speaker test. If you are using a stereo channel source or the unit has no center channel encoded, turn on the "Super Surround" option.

    Right Speaker
    The right speaker of the center channel is a "Super Tweeter" it along with the full range speaker produce a more natural sound even though you may not hear audio coming from the super tweeter. Super tweeters produce high frequencies which may not be heard at all times.
  • How do I use the ARC feature with my home theater system?
    ARC is an abbreviation for Audio Return Channel. To use this feature the HDMI cable you are using must be compliant to HDMI v1.3 spec or later. Older cables may not work correctly.

    VIERA Link can work with either the HDMI- ARC feature of a compatible TV.
    For ARC usage make sure that the systems HDMI ARC port is connected to the TVs ARC port.

    1. Press [HOME].
    2. Select "Others" icon and press [OK].
    3. Select "Setup" and press [OK].
    4. Select "Audio" and press [OK].
    5. Select "TV Audio Input" and press [OK]. Then select the "ARC" option.

    Afterwards the TV's ARC feature will control the home theater system and the sound from the TV will be heard through the systems speakers.
