Panasonic SC-HT1500 review

Panasonic SC-HT1500 DVD/hard-disk recorder

Product Specifications

The versatile SC-HT1500 gives you exciting ways to watch movies, record TV shows, listen to music, and edit digital images. Adding to the great entertainment are the SC-HT1500's high-performance speakers and the new sound field control function, which lets you optimize the sound depending on the recording program. You get clear, easy-to-understand dialog and vocals, a sound that totally surrounds you, and a throbbing dynamic bass that seems to put you right in the middle of the action.
