I,m waiting on the 900 being delivered today.
Will take me a few days to test everything wot with work and that.Nice one. Could you possibly report back here with your impression of it? My 700 is here tomorrow and they are very similar in terms of codecs and sound modes only yours has higher wattage and high res audio. Be interesting to see what you think. I currently have a LG SH7 sound bar so looking forward to the upgrade
The audio delay seems to happen with any content that's in dolby digital plus or atmos. PCM stereo sources, the audio comes on straight away theres no delay. This makes me think that maybe its something to do with the soundbars software, just takes a while initiate the decoding of the audio. Doesn't rather than a fault.I am not sure that happens with mine I will have to check. I have a slight lip sync issue with sky q its just slightly out but I can't go below zero on sky to rectify this. Someone might know?
I had another look today. Found that devices that connected straight into the soundbar, dont have any issues at all. There just seems to be a delay between the tv and soundbar.Yes I have. Ill have a tinker about tonight when I can get myself off COD Warzone
I have to say the only sound modes where I can hear the difference is between Standard/3D surround all other modes cinema etc sound no different to me but could be my ageing ears?. Have also tried the Clear Dialogue settings and again no perceivable difference. To be fair have only used it connected to the Panasonic TV, Mainly Netflix/Amazon Prime and have not tried The DVD to HDMI 1 and Apple 4K to HDMI 2. And maybe the sound modes will make a difference with these.Another thing. Cant hear any difference between the sound modes though. Can you hear any difference?
I dont think it's your hears tbh. As the only sound modes I can hear the difference is standard and 3d as well, other sound modes, no difference no matter what the source is.Have had this now for a week and on the whole very happy as it replaced a Q Acoustics M3 and is a big improvement.

Strangely yesterday got an error code,
This system is receiving unsupported video format signal from the input source.
- ≥ Change the video resolution setting on the
connected device. (Refer to the operating
instructions for the device.)
- ≥ If there is no image, connect the device directly
to the TV to change the settings.
The sound bar still worked and all I did was scroll through the input options on the remote to select the TV input. Can only assume was something to do with the Freesat signal and not happened since.
There is an app for the soundbar? Didnt know that. What's it called? Do have the panasonic htb900 soundbar?At the end of the day we tend to find our favourite settings and stick to them and still better than crappy TV speakers. Just one more thing, To get sound modes like cinema I have to use the IOS app as it is not an option from the remote!.
Ah right,It is the Panasonic Music Control app and your are supposed to also download the Google Home app to set up the sound bar according to the manual.
Definitely the HTB900 and just scrolled through the options on the remote and as I said no Cinema option listed. It did update the firmware from switch on and perhaps some options have been disabled by the new firmware! but no big deal really.
