Featuring high-end audio technology and a range of versatile connectivity options, Panasonic’s new TV speakers take entertainment to new heights

Frankfurt, Germany (23rd February 2015) – Panasonic has today unveiled a selection of new ALLConnected speaker systems designed to take home audio to the next level. Four new Sound Bars and two Speakerboards have been developed to bring a cinema-like audio experience to your living room while looking subtle and stylish beneath the television.

The SC-ALL70T Sound Bar and SC-ALL30T Speakerboard also provide a wireless networking functionality allowing you to connect to other speakers of the Panasonic ALL-connected audio system, so you can share your favourite songs and soundtracks with numerous networked speakers around the house. Alternatively, you can also pair them with Panasonic’s new SC-ALL2 speakers to create the ultimate wireless 5.1ch surround sound.

Cinema-like audio quality

Panasonic has used its years of experience in audio technology and speaker design to ensure its new series of Sound Bars (SC-HTB885, SC-HTB690, SC-HTB485 and SC-ALL70T) and Speakerboards (SC-ALL30T and SC-HTE200) to get the most out of any audio source. The speakers found in each of the new devices have been shaped to suppress distortions and feature diaphragms designed to enhance bass as well as provide crisp and clear results at the highest frequencies. The result is beautifully balanced audio that recreates sounds just as they were intended.

Each of the new Sound Bars is also accompanied by a wireless, down-firing subwoofer. By positioning its driver towards the floor the additional speaker can produce a much more rounded, powerful bass sound than you would expect from such a compact design. The result is a sleek looking audio set-up that lets you feel every second of the action from the comfort of your sofa.

The new range of Sound Bars and Speakerboards also provide a variety of multi-channel speaker set-ups. The SC-HTB885 boasts five integrated speakers and a Clear Dialogue mode to deliver clear and powerful surround sound that makes voices appear like they’re coming from the centre of the screen. This 5.1ch set-up is supported by a 2nd-generation LincsD-Amp designed to eliminate the jitter and distortions usually associated with digital sound playback, providing crystal clear results every time.

The three speakers in the SC-ALL70T Sound Bar combine with the powerful wireless subwoofer to produce a stunningly rich and rounded soundstage that’s far more dynamic and immersive than that delivered by traditional TV speakers. Similarly, you can take your TV viewing to another level without cluttering up your living room thanks to the two speaker configuration found in the SC-HTB485. Again, by combining with the wireless subwoofer, movies, TV shows and music become far more impactful. Like the SC-HTB885, both Sound Bars also feature Clear Dialogue functionality.

The SC-ALL30T and SC-HTE200 Speakerboards feature a Long Aero Stream Port and Dual Integrated Subwoofer for deep and dynamic bass reproduction without the need for a separate speaker. The feature solves the traditional problem of how to get powerful bass out of a compact speaker by incorporating two subwoofers and a pair of innovative ports that give bass sound waves more space to move.

Versatility to suit your home

With easy to establish Bluetooth connectivity to a mobile device with one touch (NFC), all of the new Sound Bars and Speakerboards enable you to take complete control of your audio output at all times. By pairing a mobile or tablet you can listen to all your favourite music, internet radio or podcasts with the press of a button.

In addition to Bluetooth connectivity as standard, the ALL-connected audio Sound Bar (SC-ALL70T) and Speakerboard (SC-ALL30T) take audio enjoyment a step further with wireless, multi-room audio functionality.Simply connect either device to other ALL-connected audio speakers around the home via the Panasonic Music Streaming app and share the output from the TV with friends and family.Alternatively, you can pair your TV audio with two SC-ALL2 speakers to create a truly immersive 5.1ch wireless surround sound experience in a single room.

The Panasonic Music Streaming app is also compatible with a range of online content providers, including the likes of Spotify, Napster, Aupeo! and ALLPlay™ Radio powered by TuneIn, allowing you to stream and share millions of songs whenever you want.

Compact and clutter-free design

The sleek design of the new Sound Bar range lets you neatly wall mount your speakers beneath the TV, or place them in front without blocking the view. The angled shape has been carefully developed to accommodate the largest speaker possible, and an IR blaster relays signal from your remote control just in case the TV’s sensor is blocked.

Similarly, thanks to their slim profile and stylish glass top the SC-ALL30T and SC-HTE200 can slot directly under your TV, dramatically improving your TV sound quality without compromising your decor. All Sound Bars and Speakerboards (excluding the SC-HTB485) also allow for 4K signal pass though from a set top box, computer or Blu-ray Player thanks to an HDCP 2.2 connection. This negates the need for additional HDMI cables and keeps your sitting room looking neat and tidy.
