CES 2020 News: Panasonic announces SC-HTB01 gaming soundbar

A small bar with some DSP effects... decoding of lossless audio formats, but a complete inability to provide true ATMOS / DTS:X etc?
It's just a basic bar with some marketing thrown at it.
I'm picking gamers are more interested in a bar that can handle high frame rates via HDMI / a HDMI 2.1 chipset on-board. But even then many, many gamers want to have a built in microphone to talk to team mates etc... which is probably why Pana should have developed a gaming headset. Just saying.

Basically just a tweaked Sc-SB1 that they released in 2018 and sounded very average, I certainly wouldn't waste my cash using one.
