Summary: This item performs equally in comparison with those costing 2-3 times as much for a fraction of the cost. Easy to install instructions and everything performs as advertised. Easy to hook in components such as DVD-R and CD player. Greatly enhances the quality of a big screen TV and gives the sound that you get at movie theaters. Highly endorse this product..
Summary: The Panasonic SC-HT 40 Home Theater System is a nice unit. The price is good. The descpription of the Surround Sound is vague though. It lists 2-way ready. When I received it, I found that the transceiver-receiver was not included. I called Panasonic and they said the trans/receiver was no longer available. I ended up buying a "rocket fish" trans/ receiver for around $105.00 with tax There were some panasonic trans/receivers on the internet for sale.
Summary: i bought this system because i didnt have time to shop and i was having company and i wanted a sound system for my new karaoke. i was really planning a bose system which i had when i lived in south carolina. however they couldnt deliver promptly. no regrets. this system although not as perfect (acoustics wise) as bose performed more than i expected.
Summary: I've had one of these for about a year and it's great... when it's functional! After about 6 or 7 months it blew a capacitor which I was told is somewhat common with these units. Now a few months after having it repaired it's showing signs of another impending disaster. It really was great while it lasted though.
Pros: Easy to use and in my opinion good connectivity. Good remote. Sounds fine for TV and PS3.
Cons: Explodes apparently! And has a hiss to it. It also gets very hot which may be related to the capacitor issues.
