amazing sound for a compact system
I have always wanted a sound bar or surround sound system after hearing one in action. It arrived in a massive box. The sound bar and subwoofer were very well packed and minimal. The sound bar is big! Just over a metre wide and looks the part, the finish looks very expensive and high end. Installation took about 10 minutes and was straight forward, the controls on top of unit easy to use and connections at rear easy to access. The wireless subwoofer just sits behind the TV and plugged into the wall, but basically can be put anywhere in the room. The sound bar connects to it within seconds. The sound is very good and clear and switching from the TV speakers to sound bar is a noticeable difference; the sound has gone from tinny with little bass to a more whole sound with good but subtle bass. It is so good that we have to sometimes turn the Bass down so as not to disturb the neighbours! Where we noticed the biggest difference is when watching films, the sound bar comes into its own and the bass is amazing, as close to the cinema as we will get in our living room. However, we did not; notice a big difference with surround sound setting. It is just not as good as having rear speakers. The only issue we have noticed a time delay from using TV apps like Netflix to the sound bar of between 3-5 seconds that is not apparent on our TV speakers. This is using an HDMI cable. Panasonic Support recommend purchasing an optical cable which fixed the issue. Using streaming apps, Sky Q worked fine at the time. Connecting a mobile device phone via Bluetooth to play saved music is simple and sounds great. The remote is small and not really needed daily as our sky and TV remote both work to adjust volume on sound bar, we only use it for setting up the many different sound effects or level of the subwoofer. Overall, the system looks very neat and tidy with no cables on show. I was given this product by Panasonic to review as part of the Panasonic Reviewer programme.

An excellent soundbar
The SC-HTB700 is a replacement for my soundbase and separate rear speakers. The soundbar and subwoofer were well packed with the instruction booklet visible on opening the box. Both items are well made. The the touch sensitive controls on the soundbar are responsive. The inputs are easily accessible. The soundbar was straightforward to set up. It has two HDMI inputs which meant both my set top box and Blue-Ray player could be connected directly to it. When switched on the subwoofer connected immediately to the soundbar. The various sound modes are easy to select. The 3D surround sound effect is off by default. It is noticeable when turned on but, for me, is not as effective as separate surround sound speakers. The subwoofer, however, is effective in improving the bass. Music playback is very good from both Bluetooth and streaming apps on my tv. The ability to pair up to 8 devices is a bonus. The SC-HTB700 is a great improvement over TV speakers and works "out of the box" I was given this product by Panasonic to review as part of the Panasonic Reviewer programme.
A superb soundbar
I was very interested to try the HTB700 soundbar out, I currently have a Panasonic ALL70 with connected ALL2 rear speakers to make a 5.1 system. The ALL70 was disappointing when I bought it as without the rear speakers there was no surround sound experience. The HTB700 manages to overcome this and is tuned to fire sound up and down giving a much more immersive experience, it's a shame there is no option to add further rear speakers, but keeping everything in one package makes it a lot tidier and easy to setup. There is plenty of power available and the wireless subwoofer provides strong deep bass and it is very simple to setup, plus it can obviously be placed anywhere which is great if you don't have room near the soundbar. Overall the soundbar looks fantastic and sleek and the sound quality is excellent, films in DTX sound superb and the performance increase over my older soundbar is easily apparent. Dolby Atmos tests I've performed sound good, but don't offer the same experience as a system with true upward firing speakers. Another notable omission is support for pass through of HDR10+ and Dolby Vision which seems strange when it features on Panasonic's new TVs. Overall an excellent 3.1 system and a much cleaner setup to a traditional home cinema system - the perfect addition to any large screen TV.
