  • How do you find the unit? I picked up a Philips 2193 a few weeks back and whilst being impressed by the sound, it had an issue (design flaw) where when there was a silent part in whatever you were watching, a break between songs, or buffering, the unit would take about half a second to start playing the sound again when it started. Sounds minor but highly annoying when you miss parts of dialog.

    If this one doesn't do it I think I'll pick her up

  • The sound is 100 times better than the TV speakers. I also have a Logitech z506 speaker set that I used for audio but this is way better..
    No buffering or breaking of sound.

    • Are there any sync or delay issues over HDMI? My Philips 2.1 soundbar has a noticeable lag that I can't fix and it's made it almost unusable for video.

  • Nice, I wish I didn't buy the Yamaha YSP-1600 for over $800 couple weeks back.I dont know if the sound quality difference worths that the price tag.

    How does this compare to the Yamaha YAS 106b

    • Havent tried the Yamaha YAS 106b so can't comment but I am really happy with the Panasonic soundbar

  • looking for a descent sound bar for a while, no idea about the brand and sound quality, can someone review this one?

    Is it worthwhile getting one with Atmos? Would this one be good enough for young kids and consoles?
