Panasonic SC-PT550

 

Great sound quality very punchy Good picture, love the upscaling option. Looks good too.

Menus aren't very logically laid out. Compared to my Panasonic Plasma's menus, they are poor.

Once set up you can forget about it and enjoy brilliant sound every time you watch your TV. The difference when viewing pre-recorded DVDs is outstanding, a true cinema effect.

Instructions for setting up the unit are not the best, particularly for full cinema effect from normal TV.

excellent sound. fairly easy to set up. plays everything.

whilst easy to set up is a bit fiddly. can be difficult to know which settings to use - but is that a bad point for this system? probably not.

Excellent picture (upscaled to 1080i) Sound quality Viera Link Attractive speakers (especially when wall mounted either side of a 42" panel)

Voices can sometimes be a bit quiet and only one optical input. Speaker wire for the rear speakers is a bit short so measure BEFORE you start tacking it to the wall! :-) These are only really minor negatives and overall it is a great system for the price!

Looks good and sounds good. Goes well with the Panasonic Plasma TV

Sub woofer speaker cable could have been longer.

Very sleek and stylish design - good sound and video quality, upscaled standard DVD's definately worthwhile. Great functions - can listen to IPOD/MP3 thru 3mm jack on front, pipe TV sound into it to acheive 5.1 (audio cable not supplied tho) - works...

Standard speaker cable supplied is woefully inadequate also unable to replace subwoofer cable as it is hard wired in. Lack of supplied HDMI cable - very annoying. Setup is not that easy and could do with 'auto tune/setup function' of surround sound...

Looks good, good quality sound

USB music can only handle 4000 songs on a device, so not quite as useful as a music server
