Panasonic SC-BT330 Blu-ray Disc Home Theater Sound SystemReview


This step-up from Panasonic's entry-level SC-BT230 HTiB offers larger main speakers, a more powerful subwoofer and automated audio calibration, but mostly the same strengths and weaknesses.

However, overall, with a questionable sonic improvement over its little brother, the SC-BT230, you might consider picking up that more compact, less expensive system instead, as it represents a better overall value with all of the salient features of...

It's not the perfect Blu-ray home cinema system, but there are certainly more pros than cons.

Panasonic SC-BT330 review


This 5.1 BD system is good-looking, but lacks grunt

Top-notch BD player ; Easy to use ; Multimedia capabilities

Doesn't like to be driven hard ; Low-grade speaker wire and terminals

Not as happy as i should be for 540 dollars


Heres an idea.. lets sell a HD system that is set up for internet TV without all the needed utilities to use it!!!! If I were to do this all over I would not purchase this and go for its cheaper sony brother that comes with wifi dongle and hdmi cables.

Its a theather in a box

This system falls on the pricey side for what you get ; DOES NOT have an Apple iPod jack ; DOES NOT come with a wifi dongle ; DOES NOT come with HDMI cables

Honestly,I was gearing up for something that didn't sound too good.Boy,that couldn't be further from the truth.Panasonic and Newegg didn't come close to letting me down.These days I guess the Iphone is supposed to have the headphone jack.

BD player ; Iphone connector ; Good Sound ; and IT LOOKS GREAT

Don't lose the remote or you'll be sorry

awesome hometheater system


i bought this for movies but one thing i thought would be cool was music, mp3's streamed through the xbox 360 seem to not have much bass.. sounds flat. i havent figuered this part out yet, but on cd's it actually sounds good. so not a con for this...

i have had several in the past but its really hard to beat blueray combined with 5.1 surround sound all together in and easy to use package, this system is extremely nice for the money it cost, it can get plenty loud when you want it to but keeps its...

when i first got it the first thing it did after hooking it up was stick a blueray disk to watch a movie "avatar", the movie took probably a full minute and a half to read though. but after a few minutes of pondering i hooked it up to the network and...

Product Specifications

Viera Cast's assorted online content just keeps getting better - in addition to the popular contents such as YouTube and Picasa Web Albums, it now offers Pandora Internet radio, exciting sports from FOX sports, and tweeting web communications with twitter. No PC required. By using a combination of real speakers and virtual speakers, a more natural and smoother sound can be enjoyed. You'll notice the difference, especially in an action scene - you'll feel like you're sitting in the center of a true cinema theater. With the bamboo cone speakers, the sound becomes much more responsive. Vocals are more pure and cleaner, and the dialog is crisper and easier to understand than ever before. The Kelton type subwoofer reproduces highly robust, reverberating bass sounds. The SC-BT330 is compatible with a feature of ARC (Audio Return Channel). ARC allows receiving audio signals from the TV, on top of the preexisting HDMI function of sending audio/video signals to the TV with just one cable. This feature will simplify the connection by eliminating an audio cable connection between the TV audio output and the main unit's audio input.
