Panasonic SC-PT480 DVD Home Cinema System

 

The SC-PT480 one-box cinema system is full of surprises.

Panasonic SC-PT480 DVD Home Theater Sound System

 

I've read online that it is possible to get true 5.1 through optical but with an expensive sound card. If anyone could help me (and anyone else) to an alternative method, that would be great.

Very loud for the price, good bass

This can't play in true 5.1 via the digital audio in. Optical can only transmit stereo. The system can however, turn the stereo into 3.1 by forcing the center and sub to play and at good quality. Unfortunately, the surround speakers don't actually play...

OK for the Price, but expected more

 

This is a basic HT in a box. Great price for a basic unit. I use it to watch tv\/movies with surround sound which lends to much better audio than bad TV speakers. This unit is supposedly 1000watts, I beg to differ. It just doesn\'t seem that loud, it...
