Panasonic SC-BTT505


This classy Blu-ray player and surround system is a cut above

Composed sound with good dynamics and detail ; Generous range of features ; Striking design is a departure for Panasonic

Limited internet content ; Apps menu need a rethink ; Takes ages to set up ; Hit-and-miss video streaming

The SC-BTT505 brings a rare sense of sonic refinement to the all-in-one system market, and backs it up with plentiful features and eye-catching design. Only limited internet content lets the side down.

Overall Very pleased but see bad points

I have my unit mounted above my tv in a flyover shelf and there is no button on the remote to open the DVD tray. Must be done manually standing on tip toe to see relevant button
