Panasonic SC-PT950 Wireless Home Theater System


Yet another Panasonic HTiB? That's right, here we have the SC-PT950. It is identical in functionality to its little brother, the PT750. For an extra $100, you'll get tower speakers, a slightly

Does not work for all iPods


Strange that Panasonic would put out a product that claims to be iPod compatible yet only on certain iPods...

great for movies ; looks good

does not work for most iPods (including shuffle, Touch, and all subsequent new generation iPods) ; Wireless rear speakers cut in and out

Solid sound for the money.


I purchased this from Costco last week for $399 and so far have been very impressed. I'm not quite sure why folks panned it with a 4. The bass shakes the walls in my living room, the wireless surround speakers are convenient, I can control my iPod...

Easy setup, great bass, clean sound, love the "tall boys

HDMI cable not included

Nice if all you watch are DVDs


This unit would be great if i just wanted to watch upscaled DVD in surroud sound but because it has no inputs i cant use it for blu-ray, playstation, etc. My bad i should have done more research before buying it. I do like the standup floor speakers...

lots of power, wireless rears, 1080P w/ HDMI

No inputs, sub not particularly powerful

Taking it back


Hard to believe this is being sold into the home audio market w/no SPDIF input. The 1050 has fiber digital audio, but no RCA SPDIF so I can't use that with my satellite dish either. But if you're satisfied with stereo audio inputs, it's great!

Wireless rear speaker, good audio, great video

No digital audio input. No rear fade

Nice, but room for improvment


Overall not a bad choice for a home theater. I dont like iPods but if you have one (or more) its a nice feature. This is not an "unbeatable" home theater system but it is still a solid sound system and has pretty darn good quality. I got this as a gift...

It looks nice and complements my TV well. Overall well rounded home theater system.A great improvment over any TV speakers

The speakers work great with the high sounds but the muddy low grumbling sub sounds could be better. Also the rear speakers are TOOO SOOOFFT. Thats my biggest complaint. If you dont stick your ear within a few feet of the speakers you will be unsure if...

Sounds great


Big manual, detailed manual. A lot to read and you should if you want the surround to work correctly. Didn't have the optical output like the later model. But there are so many extras I still haven't figured it all out.

Love the remote wireless speakers they come in handy when you don't want it to loud just loud enough for you to here. The quality is clean, the reciever pick up every channel and the Ipod is a must. It remote control capabilities work on other remotes

It is much deeeper than most systems, it barly fits on the console shelf. Make sure you have adiquet room in the rear

Works with wireless


I got this from Best Buy on sale before price drop. Also, if you plan to change the speaker wires, be warned, the front standing speaker will not fit together properly with anything but the standard wires. Center and rear speaker wires can easily be...

This is no speaker set if you are an audiophile, however for the average user going from TV speakers to surround, these are great. I set it up in a room where we have 802.11b/g 2.5GHz wireless internet and 5GHz wireless phones. Internet, speakers, and...

Rear speakers are quite soft. Even after manually tweaking them to output +6Db as compared to the front and center, the rear sound is harder to hear. This is not an issue for the average movie or game, but softer sounds are sometimes missed
