Panasonic SC-BTT350 Blu-ray 3D Home Theater in a Box (HTiB) Review
2 April 2011
Conclusion: For under $350, this little Blu-ray 3D HTiB system is something special, offering a significant sonic upgrade from a TV's built-in speakers, and delivering video performance and features that are fairly astounding for its price point. It also provides an excellent source for 1080p and 3D content.
Pros: Built-in Blu-ray 3D player, On-board decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, Decent DVD upconversion performance, Excellent Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D playback, Surprisingly good sound from such a small package, Excellent value, Good selection of streaming features
Cons: Netflix interface lacks browse or search capabilities, No VUDU streaming, User interface can be non-intuitive, Limited dynamic range if pushed, Bass is a little boomy
Excerpt: The art of designing AV kit to look contemporary and even attractive is a skill that seems to have passed Panasonic by – its designers refuse to match the exterior aesthetics or the menu systems of its products to the technological innovation that lies within their often dour exteriors.
