Panasonic SC-PT860 review


We can pick holes in the performance but they're only small, so focus on the price and functionality of this home cinema system

HDMI output with 1080p upscaling ; loads of functionality including an iPod dock ; detailed surround sound ; colourful, detailed picture

Some noise to tricky edges ; music is flabby ; home cinema sound lacks solidity

Great surround sound. Good ipod functionality. Easy to set up. Good value for all you get. DVD quality seems fine.

Doesn't fully link with my Viera Link TV as its only Viera2 compatable not 3. Although the off, home cinema volume, and TV sound source does. Ipod sound quality is good although not fantastic. The music menu on screen is a little slow.

Easy to set up. Looks great. Excellent bass. Surround sound with Sky HD and optical in is truly amazing. Perfect surround sound with the autosetup option.

Slightly complicated with all the various settings within the menus and linking with Viera Control.

Good sound

Centre speaker could be a bit stronger bass can be too much, as you have to turn the extra bass off and set the sub level to 1 out of 3 if you want to hear any of the other speakers in action films
