Discription vague

  • 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'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.
