Confirmed purchaser Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The Panasonic SC-PT870 is a good all-round home-cinema system. With excellent picture quality, its performance with movies is great. The sound quality via the iPod dock and cd/dvd is impressive.
Bad points:
The sound quality via the USB is hurrendously bad and the speakers should be wireless as they are a pain to assemble but these are really the only drawbacks.

Good points:
Its a nice little package for the price
Bad points:
When people are talking its would be nice to have the front speaker louder, it may be me as I'm not sure how to get the center speaker louder, that's if you are able too.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
fantastic product, exactly as other reviews said... very very happy with it on my PS3 and on HDTV!
Bad points:
maybe just one bad point is that Optical Input cannot carry DTS through it, so on some PS3 games I had to put back to 5.1, otherwise great.

Jack, Newcastle

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I bought this unit as I wanted a good quality home cinema system with tallboy speakers. It's easy to set up and works perfectly. I don't have anything to compare to, as this is our first system, but the sound is great in stereo and dolby surround. Picture is great and the divix works perfectly via the USB connection.
Bad points:
It doesn't pick the radio stations well.

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. Kelton Subwoofer The Kelton Type Subwoofer has an internal structure that is divided into two hermitically sealed spaces. The drive unit that is mounted to the space in the back causes the air in the front space to vibrate. This causes an Acoustic Filter effect in the front space to absorb unwanted noise while also vibrating the Passive Radiators. This achieves highly robust, reverberating bass sounds.
  • 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).
