When Are Most New Panasonic Soundbars Released?

We couldn't see any prominent trend in the release dates for new Panasonic soundbars over the last 2 years.

In January 2018, two new Panasonic soundbars were released making it the biggest month that year for new Panasonic soundbar releases. Eight new Panasonic soundbars were released in May 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new Panasonic soundbar releases.

How Fast Do Panasonic Soundbar Prices Drop After Release?

Panasonic soundbars tend to depreciate more slowly than most soundbars.

Most soundbars drop in price by 10% in the first 6 months after release. In the first 6 months after release, Panasonic soundbars drop in price by 9% on average.

That means a saving of £23 on a typical £265 new Panasonic soundbar if you wait 6 months before buying.
