This surround sound system creates an authentic and exciting 3D enhancement effect from the stereo speakers while preserving the clarity and definition. The TH37PX50U offers extraordinary sound stage imaging, helping to ensure optimal clarity for centrally staged audio material such as dialogue. This expansive audio complements the incredible picture quality of Panasonic's plasma TV.

Such a wide range from black to white means great depth and dimensionality with vibrant colors-and this plasma can display an incredible 8.58 billion colors for a superior picture. Deep blacks provide excellent shadow detail during dark scenes, while brilliant whites allow plasmas to render bright scenes with vivid realism.
