Wide choice of installation options
With a variety of installation options, the SC-HTB770 is one of the most versatile soundbar systems on the market. Whether you use it as a soundbar or free-standing separates, on the wall or on a TV stand, it can be integrated into your living room with minimum fuss - perfect if you have limited space to play with.
But even better news is its terrific sound quality - powerful, poised and expansive, it makes movies sound ten times more exciting than any TV.
Sound is very good, but the features are what really sell it. Although the interface can be a little clunky, the ability to watch amazon video and use pandora without plugging in a computer is great. Also first thing you should do after buying this system is get the App. Not only does the app give you quick access to volume and arrow keys, it also gives you a full duplicate of the actual remote AND quick control over the audio settings like base level and equalizer.
Simple to set-up, simple to use
Given its $399 suggested retail price, the SC-BTT195 offers a whole lot of bang for the buck. It sets up quickly, providing a 3D-capable Blu-ray player and provides access to a nice selection of audio and video streaming services. While the speakers seem a little flimsy, for the price this can be overlooked, especially for anyone who loves movies but lacks the budget and space for a full-fledged component home theater system.
Very good detail, color, contrast, and black levels
The SC-BTT195 is a good option for those looking for a modestly-priced all-in-one system to enjoy Blu-ray, DVD, internet streaming, and to enhance their audio listening experience, especially for movies, in a smaller room environment. For a home theater-in-a-box system in its price class, it is worth consideration.
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.
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?
I bought this for my mother & father for Christmas. Both are in their mid-80s and live in a town-home community with mostly other adult residents. They live in another state so I was concerned about having to maintain the system from my remote location but, so far, this has not proved to be a problem. The system was very easy to set up. It took about 2-3 hours to get it up and running.
The system works fine. It is the way you have it set-up! As the earlier poster stated.....You will need to adjust the sound using the remote. There are two buttons on bottom left-hand corner that allows you to do so. One is titled SOUND and the other is EFFECTS. I am getting 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound using a To slink (digital optical cable) connected to my cable box directly into my Blue-ray player.
Looks nice, sounds great
I got this yesterday and was able to get it hooked up easy. the rear cables are just long enough for the rear speakers. front, center and woofer have plenty of wire. i have nothing but samsung tv's so the remote replaced my tv remote out of the box no programing. if you use a optical cable it know's to use that for the audio without any setting changes by you either. less work from me is always better. the wireless is good too.
More Features Than Listed
When I was looking for a reasonably priced Samsung surround system, I wanted to run HDMI to my TV and also have an aux input to play an iPod through. The feature list on the HTE550 did not list all the inputs on the unit for some reason. In a web search, I found a PDF of the system manual and showed FM radio, HDMI, 2 aux inputs, one on the front of the unit for an iPod and one in the rear. Also component input and optical audio as well.
System is easily set up and has good connectivity options, hooked up to satellite reciever and xbox as well as TV. Connected to wireless network easily. Sound quality is better than average, but not spectacular. The wireless rear speakers make installation a breeze, but are somewhat weak in sound delivery. Disappointed that there is not a multiple disk changer, and the single drive is slow loading.
Excellent product at an excellent price
Everything from the price to the shipping, to the speed, has been excellent. I cut the speaker wire and installed them in my wall, so I had a custom setup pretty much, but for the BlueRay and regular DVDs, and Netflix, it works just fine. It sounded great too.
