Panasonic SC-PT660

 

Panasonic's 2008 home-theater-in-a-box line has three contenders in the sub-$500 range. At the top of the line is the SC-PT960, which includes wireless speakers in the rear, tallboy speakers up front, and is XM-ready. In the middle is the $400...

5.1-channel home theater in a box; DVD upscaling to 1080p via HDMI output; integrated iPod dock; full iPod menu displayed on TV for easy remote navigation

Utilitarian look and feel; paltry connectivity; no iPod video playback via HDMI or component output; sounds better with movies than with music

With its five-disc changer, HDMI output, and integrated iPod dock, the Panasonic SC-PT660 delivers an impressive home theater value for less than $300.

Considering I got a refurbished unit from WeGotBetterDeals.com for $150 is even better! I am a big fan of refurbs - at least you know it's tested before it ships.

Easy hook-up

Limited inputs

GREAT value! (Especially @ WeGotBetterDeals.com)

 

Considering I got a refurbished unit from WeGotBetterDeals.com for $150 is even better! I am a big fan of refurbs - at least you know it's tested before it ships. If you consider yourself a true "audiophile" then this probably isn't for you. But then...

Easy hook-up ; Easy to follow manual ; Great performance for the price ; Able to adjust time delay(s) for speakers and increase center channel for louder dialogue

Limited inputs ; Proprietary speaker connections can prove difficult if you want longer speaker leads and you're inept at small wiiring repair/replacement

Consumer review by:

Overall great value, lacking a few features.

 

Overall this product delivers lots of bang for a small price. The sound quality is average; not comparable to higher-end units, but this isn't a higher-end unit! For the price, I would rate the sound quality at slightly-above-average. What really...

PRICE ; Bass/overall sound quality ; Manages all my HT needs

NO CLOCK ; Slightly limited inputs

Looks nice, but sound not thst good

 

Upgraded to ONKYO HT-S4100 which is 50$ more, but no DVD player, but the sound is amazing.

Nice looking ; IPod ready ; Upscaling DVD to 1080p via HDMI ; 5 disc changer

Only one optical input ; No coax input ; Weak speakers and subwoofer

Home Theater System

 

Make sure you buy a HDMI cable and a Optical digital audio cable as the system does not come with these items. You will need for picture quality and sound from tv programs.

Home theater system was shipped to me on 9/22/08 only took 2 days. Hooked system up to my 64 inch tv and it was very easy to do. Theater system sounds good and does everything that it states. Dvd`s play and have a great picture. For the low cost this...

Dvd trays and ipod holder you need to be careful with they are on the cheap side. But again for the price of the Home Theater System that is to be expected

Panasonic SC-PT660 1080p Up-Conversion DVD 5.1 CH Home Theater System

 

Although I do have some Cons, the Pros vastly outweigh them. If you are looking for a good home theater in a box, look no further

This set seems to work fantastically with the Samsung 32" flat panel that I have. Surround sound sounds great with DVDs and DVDs look great upscaled to 720p

Could be more inputs, but that's what you get with a unit of this price. Also, the menus look a bit out of date and are a bit slow when using an iPod

Product Specifications

Use of a highly rigid bamboo material in the center speaker helps achieve an extremely pure, clean sound. A Kelton Subwoofer system with a dual diameter structure delivers a deep, powerful bass. Whisper-Mode Surround allows you to enjoy rich surround sound even when watching movies at low volume. Panasonic DVD home theater products feature a 1080p up-conversion function that converts standard definition (720 x 480 pixels) images from DVD sources to high definition (1920 x 1080 pixels) images. These up-converted signals draw out the maximum performance of an HDMI compatible 1080p HDTV, giving you vivid, sharp and exceptionally detailed high-resolution images to enjoy. The built-in Universal Dock for iPod gives you a great new way to enjoy music and video. Just slip your iPod into the cradle and enjoy. The dock charges your iPod, allows you to use the home theater remote to control the iPod, has on-screen audio menus, and also plays back iPod video. The newly enhanced VIERA Link displays a menu on the TV screen, making it easier to operate your connected home theater system. For example, you can display a menu with a list of the movies or music stored on your iPod, and use the VIERA remote control unit to select one and begin playback.
