Worst surround ever
I got rid of my Samsung home theater for this because it had blue ray and wi fi built in. You need the volume at max just to hear a movie on DVD or online. The radio volume seems to have plenty of power but nothing else does and I went thru 6 of them and they where all the same so I decided to live with it for now but last night while watching a DVD the picture went out . It's only 3 months old Pioneer is P. O. S. And if you buy this you probably won't be happy with it either
No option for mixing, matching or replacing speakers
Pioneer may have had home theater in mind with the HTZ-BD32, but if you're going to bother, it's probably better suited for those smaller spaces in the home. The build and the quality of the components just don't lend themselves to a larger space that you'll call your main home theater. However, who wouldn't appreciate having a full set of speakers, a Blu-ray 3D player and streaming services in spot like the bedroom or playroom?
Good surround sound system
We got this today & the sound is great! The only issue we had was we had to buy 2 other cords for it. The blue ray player is wonderful and it also plays dvds. I love how you can use netflix on it and it works wonderful as well!! Over all i would say this is a great surround system!!!!
Great surround sound
Ordered this to go with the 50in gt25 panasonic plasma tv. You only need the one HDMI cable (make sure it is the latest ver that supports ethernet) to the set to receive audio from other sources on the TV. Make sure you enable ARC. I wish this unit had hdmi inputs but the TV had more then we needed and the sound is very good.
Built-in apps tend to operate slowly
The Panasonic SC-BTT350 is a mid-cost full HD 3D Blu-Ray home theater system. In promotion, Panasonic emphasizes the fact that this home theater system has 2D image technology applied to its 3D technology, so that the images are especially high quality, approaching the quality of original film.
Hi-def 3D playback
After coming to terms with the fact that the SC-BTT350 doesn't offer world-beating sound quality and only a fool would expect it to at this price you can focus on its many virtues, such as hi-def 3D playback, a packed feature list and exceptional ease of use. So if you're looking for a cost-effective, convenient way of getting 3D, hi-def and surround sound in one fell swoop, then the SC-BTT350 deserves a place on your shortlist, if not necessarily at the top.
Excellent Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D playback
For under $350, this little Blu-ray 3D HTiB system is something special, offering a significant sonic upgrade from a TV's built-in speakers, and delivering video performance and features that are fairly astounding for its price point. It also provides an excellent source for 1080p and 3D content. The streaming options are a bit light but it has the important ones (Pandora, Netflix, YouTube, Amazon VOD).
I purchased the Panasonic SC-BTT750 5.1 Home Entertainment system and so far I have not been dissapointed. It comes with blue-ray, it's wireless, and the sound is adequate. The Netflix, and Pandora options that come with the online entertainment make this system very attractive in terms of having everything you need in an entertainment system.
I gave the system a 4 only because the speakers are good, but I don't consider them great.
Effective surround sensation when speakers are positioned properly
The Panasonic SC-BTT750 is a high mid-priced full HD 3D Blu-Ray home theater system. In promotion, Panasonic emphasizes the fact that this home theater system has 2D image technology applied to its 3D technology, so that the images are especially high quality, approaching the quality of original film.
Simple to install right out of the box
The Panasonic SC-BT330 is a high-end all-in-one home theatre system with 5.1 channel surround sound. Like its younger brother, the Panasonic SC-BT230, the SC-BT330 features a Blu-Ray ROM drive with DVD/DVD-R/DVD-RW compatibility, an integrated universal iPod/iPhone dock and Audio Return Channel compatibility.
Feature list is terrific
Although the Panasonic SC-BT330 is by no means the perfect one-box system, there are certainly more pros than cons. Its feature list is terrific, the highlights of which are media streaming, Viera Cast and a built-in iPod dock â?? plus the HDMI audio return channel will be a welcome addition for those with compatible TVs.
Very few home-cinema kits manage to match picture and sound quality, with the latter usually the one to fall short. The Panasonic SC-BT330 is no different. Its audio can't quite match its impressive Blu-ray pictures, and, as you turn up the volume, it sounds increasingly raspy.
Good System for a Bedroom
This 5.1 DVD system has a specific niche - This system takes up very little space and packs a good quality sound for the price. I listen to music, view DVD's, and sports and movies sourced by an HD cable STB. The surround speakers do their job just fine. My test DVD that I used was Diana Krall's "Live in Paris". It is a standard 480p disc and my DVD player in the LR is also standard. The LR speakers are KLM with two 12" woofers in each and bright dome tweeters.
On the face of it, the SC-PT480 is a fairly unremarkable one-box cinema system, with an old-school DVD deck, understated looks and a seemingly basic spec sheet. But take it for a test drive and it's full of surprises sound quality is highly enjoyable, picture quality is terrific and there's a clutch of decent features to play with, including a built-in iPod dock, USB media playback and loads of sound modes.
Features a wide array of online services that are actively being expanded upon
The Panasonic SC-BT230 is a high-end all-in-one home theatre system with 5.1 channel surround sound. It comes equipped with Panasonic's bamboo cone speakers which allow for a more responsive sound, a Blu-Ray/DVD/DVD-R/DVD-RW player and a universal iPod/iPhone dock for playback through the SC-BT230's 5.1 channel speaker setup.
Sizzling picture quality
Although we're impressed by the SC-BT230's range of features, sizzling picture quality and ease of use, it's sound quality is sorely disappointing. Normally we'd cut this system some slack based on its bargain price, but Sony's BDV-E370 manages to deliver better audio quality for a similar amount of money, as well as throwing a wider range of online content, 3D compatibility, auto calibration and faster disc loading into the bargain.
Easy to use
If you're looking for a convenient Blu-ray system with lots of features and cracking pictures, and you're not overly fussed about getting the best sound quality, then the SC-BT230 is worth a look. But considering what's in the box, £450 seems remarkably expensive particularly when you consider the lack of built-in Wi-Fi and HDMI inputs.
Surprisingly good sound from such a small package
For a small investment, this little HTiB system offers an excellent upgrade to a TV's built-in speakers, transforming your movie and TV viewing into a more cinematic experience. The system also feeds your HDTV with some fine 1080p HD material on Blu-ray Disc as well as a number of high quality web-based streaming options. Pandora internet music streaming is not available yet but should be coming this summer in a firmware upgrade.
The systemÃ? Â¢Ã?? Ã??
I bought this system to go with my Panasonic Viera 50" plasma. The system was very easy to setup, works great, and when new updates are released it automatically notifies you that a newer release is available. Then you just select the update option and leave it alone. Common sense should tell you not to turn it off or mess with anything while it is upgrading. The Viera-Cast with built in Pandora, Netflix, and YouTube is sweet! I am very happy with this purchase.
Weak bass response - includes a passive subwoofer in the set
The Panasonic SC-BT730 is a high-end all-in-one home theatre system with 5.1 channel surround sound. It shares many of its features with Panasonic SC-BT330, such as: an integrated universal iPod/iPhone dock, Audio Return Channel compatibility and a Kelton type sub-woofer.
Impressive bang for the buck
A home theater assembled from carefully selected components can sound amazing, but for most regular folks, buying and setting up that type of rig involves far too much time and effort. The SC-BT730 comes with everything you'll need, and once you get it home, the system should be up and running in less than a half hour. The components that comprise an integrated system can be tailored to work seamlessly together, and Panasonic has worked that angle here to deliver impressive bang for the buck.
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.
