Jason, Brighton

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The sound is amazing with good bass. Very clear and good for movies or music. The ipod dock on the front of the dvd player is very useful especially as you can use the remote control to scroll through music lists. The HDMI upscaler on the dvd player is great quality and as good as any blu-ray. Easy setup with colour coded wires. Excellent value for money and highly recommended.
Bad points:
Limited controls - but in all fairness there's not a lot you would need to do

Good points:
It's versatatility is brilliant! Apart from the bringing to life the films on the TV, the CD player and radio make it an excellent addition to any home entertainment.

There really should be a couple of metres more on the speaker wiring to cater for larger and awkward shaped rooms

Manufacturer's Description

DVD Home Cinema Sound System

Bamboo Cone Speaker, a rigid low-density bamboo material used in the front (L/R) and centre speaker cones helps achieve a clean, responsive sound. Vocals are pure and clear, and dialogue is crisp and easy to understand.

Panasonic DVD home cinema systems share the same lofty goal as the Blu-ray Disc player ― to bring astonishingly high image quality to today’s HD viewers. They feature a 1080p up-conversion function that converts standard definition (720 × 576 pixels) images from DVD sources to high definition (1920 × 1080 pixels) images. These up-converted signals draw out the maximum performance of an HDMI compatible 1080p HDTV, giving you vivid, sharp and exceptionally detailed high-resolution images to enjoy. *Video sources converted to 1920×1080 resolution, while of high quality, will exhibit somewhat lower subjective image resolution than true, native 1080p full-HD sources. See dealer for details.

The Navigation GUI screen is displayed when the cinema system is connected to a VIERA TV with an HDMI cable and the power is turned on, or when the Smart Setup button on the main unit is pressed. Anyone can then easily set it up by following the directions on the screen, for movie enjoyment with the best possible sound.

Panasonic’s Home Cinema System is a great way to enjoy the music, video and photo contents on your iPod. The list* of iPod content can be displayed on the TV screen, and you can use the remote control from the home cinema system or a VIERA TV to select and play it. * Only for Music and VIDEO ** To enjoy iPod video/photo contents, please connect your home cinema system with SCART cable to your TV.

During Stand-by Mode: A 50% Reduction reduction in power consumption (Approx.0.2W) has been achieved compared with 2008 model (SC-PT460/PT160), when the power is turned off. During Active Mode: By controlling the power consumption depending on the audio output level, a 20% reduction in power consumption has been achieved compared with 2008 model (SC-PT460/PT160).

After using the home cinema system, it is automatically turned off when you return to TV operation using the VIERA Link menu. * 2009 VIERA TV ** For Home Cinema System, to activate Intelligent Auto Standby, both video and audio input switching is necessary.
