Summary: I feel deceived about the "wireless" description of the system. For the money I spent on this system, I'm disappointed that I can't use it as my home theater system like I intended. The right and left speakers are hardwired into the receiver, only the subwoofer is wireless. I'm keeping it because I have it paired to my other devices to play music in my office.
Loud, Quality, Loud, Does not play well with your TV.

Summary: Nice to add some full sounding volume to our 42" Panny Plasma TV. Unfortunately, this only adds volume. Awkward sound clarity differences between dialogue, action scenes and music. Think of the Superbowl, with dialogue, action scenes and music in the commercials. Always want to fiddle with the dialogue control. And oh, by the way, it does not sync sound with the Panny TV…?! Neither is it controllable by any other remote in our home.
Summary: I bought this to replace an old school reciever/ big speaker setup. Big mistake, it has no high end volume and the bass is super weak. The worst part is the lack of any mid-range. Honestly your tv speakers will sound just as good as this system. I returned it and bought a more traditional Pioneer receiver surround setup which I am super happy with.
Summary: The rundown. 1. Not viera link compatible. So you'll have to use two remotes with your panasonic television. 2. The receiver is cheap and they might as well have built the amp into the subwoofer. It only has blinking lights to indicate status and volume going up and down. No fine tuning of sound, just dialog up/down and subwoofer up/down. 3.
Summary: I ordered this under the impression that it was ARC/Viera link capable. I found out the hard way and realized that it was not. Do not buy this item if you have the intentions of having your TV setup to where if you change the volume on the TV, it changes on the receiver too - being "linked" together. Overall the sound was good. I'll be swapping for the SC-HTB20.
