I had the opportunity to test out this incredible piece of audio equipment, and I was blown away by its performance. The Panorama 3 created an incredibly immersive surround sound experience that put me right in the middle of the action. The bass was rich and deep, and the highs were crystal clear. Every detail of the sound was faithfully reproduced, and I was really able to appreciate the skill of the sound engineers who created it.

The Panorama 3’s rich soundstage and enveloping effects will transport you to your favorite movie or TV show with its wide speakers that are placed at the end of the bar.

The low-frequency channel produces powerful bass for added impact on onscreen action scenes just like what’s seen during gameplay videos.
