I'm getting a 42" Panasonic plasma TV for my 15' by 20' living room and would like to get a soundbar for better sound. I'm not expecting miracles, just something with some more kick.

WireCutter had me thinking Vizio VHT215 , then I thought maybe a Panasonic would integrate better. I've tried searching, but I think I'm just complicating my search and confusing myself, so I'd like to ask for a recommendation or two.

Here's my criteria:

1. Around $300.

2. I won't have a receiver, just a cable box, AppleTV and maybe an Xbox. I'd like something that's basically plug-and-play and will automatically turn on/off with the TV and switch to the right source without hassle.

3. I don't care if it requires power.

4. I'll probably need a wireless subwoofer.

5. Less than 40" wide would be ideal. I'm working with an in-wall cavity, hence why I'm settling for 42".

Thanks for any help offered and sorry if I left our some vital information.

Yamaha YAS101 will be perfect for your needs.i have one hooked up to a 42'' LG lcd,same size room and the Yamaha rocks it.nice clear sound,good bass,though not overbearing,this soundbar is a good bang for the buck.

I will recommend to you the SONY HTCT260 amazing sound, listen to it all the time as I recommended that one to my roommate and he got it. Sounds amazing with music and great with movies too.

And wireless subwoofer to meet you needs!
