Greatly improved TV sound quality


Recently purchased a Panasonic 40 inch 4K TV. This soundbar fits exactly in-between the TV feet.Easy to set up, but the box does not include a digital audio cable! Greatly improves the sound quality of flat screen TVs.

Feels like you’re at the cinema


Bought as a present for my husband, and he loves it. Watching movies is like being in the cinema with the dramatic sound. He also likes it whilst playing PlayStation games, makes things like COD sound more real.
