Detachable sound bars, orientation detection main features

Panasonic will be making a number of home theater systems available to order later this month. The SC-HTB770, SC-HTB370, SC-HTB70, and SC-HTB65, forming the company's 2013 range of systems, were initially revealed at CES in January alongside its 56-inch Ultra HD OLED TV, but are only now coming up for order through retail stores and through Panasonic itself.

The SC-HTB770 is a 300-Watt 3.1-channel system that can be changed from being separate speakers into a single long soundbar, accompanied by a down-firing, wireless subwoofer. Using Dolby Digital, Pro Logic II, Dolby Virtual Speaker, and DTS, the system also offers Bluetooth connectivity, can accept three HDMI inputs, and two optical inputs. The 240-Watt SC-HTB370 loses the HDMI inputs and Bluetooth, but the 2.1-channel system retains the soundbar functionality.

The SC-HTB70 and SC-HTB65 models are sound bars designed to allow for multiple wall-mounting or TV-stand setups. Both 2.1-channel systems can detect if its speakers are vertical or horizontal, adjusting its directional characteristics automatically. The 90-Watt SC-HTB65 offers two such positions, while the 120-Watt SC-HTB70 boosts the number of orientations up to four.

All four systems will be on sale in March, with the SC-HTB770 and SC-HTB370 costing $400 and $300 respectively, while the SC-HTB70 and SC-HTB65 sound bars will cost $200 and $180.
