It's styled to match its Blu-ray players, but can this Panasonic keep up?

Great styling ; Digital amps are more efficient ; Slim and light

Slightly brittle sound at high volume

Panasonic has nailed its high-definition colours to the mast

Expensive for what it is ; Clinical rather than passionate

This AV receiver has been designed with Blu-ray in mind, but its degradation-free output and flexible sound modes make it a solid-looking choice for any HD home.

Outlook While the SA-XR700 is optimised for Blu-ray action, it's certainly not overkill for those who aren't so enthusiastic about adopting the next generation disc format. With its dual HDMI inputs, 1080p compatibility and lossless output, the...

Not enough outputs

 

This reciever had great promise, but with only one output for the TV, it's very hard to set up DVR or VCR for recording. I've only had it 4 months, but I'm already looking to replace it because it's too hard to use for recording. Sad, since I love the...

Runs cool, good for confined spaces

Not enough outputs, very hard to use for recording

Product Specifications

An AV receiver for the HD age must be able to amplify digital source signals containing a massive amount of information without degrading them, and produce sounds that match the HD images. In addition to reproducing sounds, however, it is more important than ever that the AV receiver have sufficient AV selector capabilities for outputting the input images free of degradation. The ease with which the user can control its advanced performance is also a performance benchmark. The SA-XR700 satisfies all of these needs. The SA-XR700 receives in their original form the 7.1-channel digital audio signals sent by HDMI cable from the DMP-BD10, digitally amplifies them without degradation, and generates more than enough power to cleanly drive the speakers. The unit's advanced audio features include triple amp drive, which allows up to three amps to drive each of two front speaker channels. Exclusive to Panasonic, this drive system makes optimal use of the receiver's multiple amps to provide a superior sound even from a two-channel audio source. The SA-XR700 doesn't stop there. It also excels at receiving the 1080p full-HD video signals sent by HDMI cable from the DMP-BD10, and outputting them in their original digital form, free of degradation, over a second HDMI cable to the TV. The SA-XR700 adds convenient operation too. HDAVI Control lets you operate all system components at the same time by pressing one button on the remote control. And Auto Speaker Setup makes it extremely easy to make the optimal speaker settings. Combining superb audio and video performance with easy operation, the SA-XR700 is the perfect building block for creating a home cinema system that will satisfy even the serious audio enthusiast.
