The ultra-affordable Panasonic SC-HT540 home cinema system is feature-packed. It's neatly put together with two floorstanding speakers to the front and smaller satellite models for the centre and rear surrounds.

The sound quality not as expected, noisy, some times it takes us more than ten time turn it on and off to work.

Panasonic SC-HT540


Easy to use and install. The sound is very nice, better than I expected.

Possibly too short wires supplied. The fact that the TV isn't automatically muted means you need to juggle the TV sound/SCHT sound to get the best effect.
