Summary: This setup worked just as advertised, with excellent sound and features. Fast start up is great. And mulitple audio-in ports helped especially with my TV, (which is a bit lacking in input jacks and no audio out. (I'm running the digital audio output from my cable box to the player instead)) I did had a problem with the right surround speaker, it produced no sound out of the box. Happily, though, it was an easy repair...
I am never buying a Panasonic product again after this

Summary: It worked fine for a year and half then completely died. Similar to what another reviewer reported, the unit no longer powered on. When I plugged it in, I kept getting a clicking sound. I called Panasonic support and they said since I bought the product about a year and a half ago, they will charge me to fix it. The charge was $142 plus shipping. Absolutely unacceptable that Panasonic does not stand behind their product when it is defective.
Summary: I bought this unit for my apartment mainly for the 5.1 surround sound. Although I am not an audiophile, I appreciate clarity in my music, and these speakers deliver on that front. The subwoofer is powerful, but not overwhelming (I have not received any complaints from any of my neighbors). The speakers also have a very small footprint and look great in my entertainment system. The Bluray player works as advertized, and the picture is very clear.
Summary: Very good value for money. The quality of the surround sound is breath-taking and really brings movies, TV, and sports to life. The built in Ipod doc is also a very handy feature and one of the reasons why I bought this system.
Summary: Excellent product, 100% recommended, and very good price! The installation was very easy, the only thing wrong is that it brings the hdmi cable, apparently it is necessary to buy it separately.
Summary: I purchased this item a couple months ago a little skeptical because i wasn't sure on the sound quality . I bought this item to go with my Panny Viera and it works so well. The sound quality is really clear and the bass is very productive. The FM radio is even louder i believe that's what the 1000w output goes to because as always when watching a movie on a surround system it is lowered and softened but that's all systems as i am coming to test out.
Summary: Ok I'm changing the review to be fair. I accepted the firmware update and it stayed at Open WA for a long time. I unplugged the machine for a day, plugged it back in and it was still stuck at Open WA. Then I did some more support checking and found I should just keep waiting. I left it on and after looking at it 30 minutes later it had turned itself off. Then upon turning back on it was working. Need to put this warning on the firmware update page.
Summary: Video wide, the unit worked perfectly in producing 2D and 3d images. Sound is great enough for watching movies, not a device for deep sound music listener. The major advantage feature of this theatre system unit is it contains in itself a 3D/Blue Ray player and sync well with TV unit. Its ethernet connection works great as well. I wish to see the sound of music from You Tube gets better, same as my desktop's little speaker system.
