Panasonic SC-HT640W review: Panasonic SC-HT640W


Panasonic SC-HT640W

The Panasonic SC-HT640W is an affordable home-theater-in-a-box system highlighted by a wireless rear surround speaker. It offers a fairly compact receiver/five-disc DVD changer, wall-mountable front minispeakers, and two Music Port jacks for quick and...

While the single-box design of the rear speakers eliminates all the wires except a power cord, the resulting sound isn't as spacious as that of conventionally placed surround speakers--and the wireless signal may blink out on occasion. And like most...

A unique wireless rear speaker makes the Panasonic SC-HT640W an impressive value for anyone in the market for a sub-$300 home-theater system.

this works wonderful... i know it doesnt say outdoor but thats where ive had mine for a while and it still works fine... if ur looking for a good system, outdoors or indoors, this is the way to go...

i love it... it works great for everything that i have (xbox, computer, dvd/vhs, etc...)

Excellent for the money


You gotta press a lil more on the buttons on the reciever than normal but who does that when you have a remote right? Over all great and the price is awesome!

Excellent for the price. The sound quality is great and the sub does thump, im very pleased. I love the remote, yes im picky about those things

Constant humming from the wireless rear speaker. Probably just for me though. Like someone else said, lack of equalization control

A great basic Home Theatre system for an incredible price.
