Panasonic SC-BT200 Blu-ray Theater HTiB System Review
10 July 2009
Conclusion: The video was definitely respectable, but with Panasonic's Hollywood pedigree, I was certainly not expecting the audio to exceed it, especially with those microspeakers and that bargain pricetag. But the SC-BT200 rocks, and can turn an LCD or plasma into a full-blown home theater, in minutes.
Pros: Don't be fooled by the small speakers: They pump out BIG sound., Convenient audio inputs for additional sources, but..., Don't be fooled by the small speakers: They pump out BIG sound., Convenient audio inputs for additional sources, but...
Cons: …No video inputs beyond the iPod dock, While impressive, video quality lacks the "wow" factor of other recent Panasonic standalone Blu-ray offerings

Summary: Panasonic's SC-BT200 home theatre system is a good choice if you're looking to team up a new big screen television with a separate sound system. It doesn’t have the aural abilities of more expensive home theatre setups, but for its size and price a reasonable amount of features are included.
Pros: Good integration of iPod dock, high-definition audio codec support, capable wireless speakers with SH-FX70 accessory
Cons: Distortion at high volumes, some frequency holes
Summary: It's fair to say the Panasonic SC-BT200 Blu-ray system isn't much of a looker. You won't find any curvaceous speakers or fancy touch-sensitive buttons here – just an unassuming, box-like main unit and some run-of-the-mill satellite speakers. It fares a bit better on the features front, though.
