Panasonic SC-PT870


The Panasonic SC-PT870 is a good all-round home-cinema system. Offering excellent picture quality, its performance with movies is great. But, while sound quality via the iPod dock is impressive, it's abysmal via the USB socket. Overall, we'd suggest...

Good picture quality ; Impressive sound when playing back movies ; High-quality iPod dock

MP3 playback via the USB socket is pretty horrible ; Speakers are a pain to assemble

The Panasonic SC-PT870 is a terrific system for everything except playing music via the USB socket. We like the DVD playback and the iPod dock, and, although the speakers don't feel particularly high-quality, they produce a pleasant-enough sound.

Panasonic SC-PT870


I had the previous version (SC-PT865W) and it sucks. Totally regret it. Only one optical port. Ticking sound in rear speaker due to the crap wireless system (and not interference) which I didn't even need. That whole viera link between the panasonic...

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....

It doesn't pick the radio stations well
