Excellent hi-def pictures
The Panasonic SC-BTT190 is a solid Blu-ray system but not one of Panasonic's best. Aesthetically it doesn't inspire the same levels of excitement as an LG or Samsung, its sound quality loses polish at volumes other speakers take in their stride, and the lack of HDMI inputs and built-in Wi-Fi makes the step-up SC-BTT290 a more appealing prospect.
Sleek looking easy set up
This surround sound system is one of the highest rated systems on Cnet.com and many others. Its' sleek design, built in wifi, wireless rear speakers and the 2 HDMI inputs on the back, make for an impressive home theater system in a box. 1000 watts is plenty of power for my 20x20 family room. The center channel is strong enough to really bring the verbal audio through clearly without the other speakers overpowering it. The sub woofer is strong, but not overpowering either.
Good Internet app suite
The Sony BDV-E780W is one of three 3D-compliant home theater systems (BDV-E780W, BDV-E580, and BDV-E280) released together in early 2011. The top unit in the series, this 5.1-channel system features two rear wireless speakers, two 2-way front speakers, a central channel, and a subwoofer.
The Panasonic 770 is a nice system. It was simple to set up out of the box. The rear surround speakers needed to be placed on a wall opposite the receiver/player and you need an electric outlet nearby. The sound coming from the rear speakers is light but the system in general is light but perfect for my living room of 18'x14'. Otherwise, the system is not intended to blow off the clothes of a woman only to provide enough sound level for your enjoyment.
Plays virtually everything: CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D
Panasonic's SC-BTT770 offers an easy "set it and forget it" type of install, and an absolutely state of the art Blu-ray 3D player as well as a nice selection of internet streaming options. The wireless speakers are also a nice touch, spreading some of the discrete surround sound to areas where it would be otherwise impossible without visible speaker wires or complicated in-wall wiring.
Audio performance was very good
Initially the Panasonic SC-PT770 didnâ?? t really impress me with the lightweight speakers and frustrating wireless rear surround speakers. Once I got over those issues and actually started to use the system my ideas changed, since it actually worked very well. Audio performance was very good for what could be considered a budget oriented all-in-one system, and the iPod integration was great.
