Philip, wigan Movie fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use .Wisper mode excellent..put this on and you can hear all those wispered lines so common in films these days..even when turned really low late at night, everthing is crystal clear.You can also select level of deep base that can ruin a film and have you reaching for the volume button every 5 minutes...just turn it down. ARC function usefull but your tv must also have it for it to work otherwise its the optical cable.A great buy for the money...dont go paying much more than this as this system really is enough for most houses and unless your a sound engineer at Abbey Road Studios, you wont be able to tell the difference.
Bad points:
No bad points that I can find really.As some reviews mention, you can hear the disk spinning slightly if you turn down really low..but having said that it really isnt that noticeable.I'm fussy and doesn't bother me..don't let this put you off . Also, you probably will have to buy some extra wire for the rear speakers depending on your room size..but you will with any cinema system...

Manufacturer's Description

DVD Home Cinema System

  • Clear Sound Digital Amplifier
  • High Quality Picture
  • Selectable Speaker Layout
  • ARC (Audio Return Channel)
  • Easy Setup
  • USB Playback

DVD 5.1ch Home Cinema System

By controlling feedback, clear sound quality, that is faithful to the original, can be produced.

High-quality images can be enjoyed. This features a 1080p Up-conversion function that converts standard-definition images (720×576 pixels) from DVD sources into high-definition images (1920×1080 pixels). These up-converted signals maximize the performance of HD flat screen TVs, providing vivid, sharp and exceptionally detailed high-resolution images.

The Panasonic DVD Home Cinema Systems are easy to install and simple to operate. All models offer a Selectable Speaker Layout that allows the speakers to be placed in front of the listening position for a surround sound effect. The layout can be selected to match the living room.

This model is compatible with the ARC (Audio Return Channel) feature, which makes it possible to receive audio signals from the TV, on top of the preexisting HDMI function of sending audio/video signals to the TV with just one cable. This feature simplifies connection by eliminating the audio cable connection between the TV audio output and the main unit’s audio input.

Easy Setup makes it easy to position speakers and set audio output levels based on simple on-screen guidance, thus enhancing movie viewing with the best possible acoustic environment.
