For a great sound base system that does more than just enhance the sound for your TV, the Panasonic SC-ALL30 is a product with a lot to offer. The user gets high-quality sound from a system that comes with features like Bluetooth streaming, internet connectivity and the ability to be expanded into a multi-room system.
This sound base from Panasonic comes with all of the pieces that you need right in the main unit. It has two 50W speakers for quality stereo sound and a pair of downward firing subwoofers to add some impact to the experience. It is a 2.1-channel system that provides great audio capabilities for watching shows and for listening to music.
As far as audio features go, the SC-ALL30 packs some nice options. Users get a dialogue enhancement feature to make the voices easier to distinguish in movies and TV shows and the system comes with a virtual surround. In addition to that, the consumer can buy a set of compatible wireless speakers to turn this sound bar into a true surround. With a pair of the ALL2 speakers from Panasonic, you can have a 4.1-channel surround sound system to watch TV with.
This system also boasts a nice range of additional features. The user can connect mobile devices through Bluetooth to stream music from their digital library and the system comes ready to be turned into a multi-room player. With the purchase of a set of wireless speakers, you can stream the music to any room in the home. The multi-room capabilities can be controlled easily from a Smartphone or tablet and you can access music from a range of different sources.
Getting this system connected and ready for use is also very easy. You can connect to the TV using the ARC-enabled HDMI or you can connect through an optical audio cable. Just connect the sound base to the TV, plug it in to a power source and it is ready to provide a more immersive audio experience for an HD TV. In addition to that, you also have a single HDMI input for connecting a Blu-ray player or a gaming system.
Consumers will also find this system to be very easy to use. It has a front display and a remote that makes it very easy to operate. This device also connects and interacts with the home network easily and Bluetooth devices are easy to pair with the NFC connecting option.
