Summary: This DVD player and surround combo is everything you could ever ask for in a cheap home theater system. I had this unit for a few years and everyone was jealous of it. Spend some time tweaking the sound, and you will have your friends going nuts over your surround sound. The DVD menu is easy to navigate and the remote is super easy to use. I had several 2-disc DVDs and this changer came in real handy. Switching discs takes less than 20 to 30 seconds.
Summary: I wish I could give a reveiw about the equipment. The equipment was mismatched from at least 4 systems, only the instruction manual was from a Panasonic SC-HT730. The seller misrepresented the product. There was virtually no packing and as a consequence the entire system was destroyed on arrival.
Summary: I bought this system because it was highly rated by a consumer group as having excellent sound. They're right - it sounds awesome with soundtrack-heavy DVD's. However, I'm going to get rid of it because I already have an extensive home theater system that I don't want to replace, and there is NO WAY to output from this receiver to my current system!! Rather, I can output VIDEO, but not AUDIO. What kind of idiot at Panasonic decided that no one would want to output audio?
Summary: Just like a previous reviewer, R. Adams from Austin, I have had nothing but the very same problems with my Panasonic home theatre. It is alarming to hear that he has had the same lack of customer service from Panasonic that I have experienced. Since day #1, I experienced major problems with it. After nearly five hours of disassembling my old speakers and putting this one together, I began to test it with a DVD. Within minutes, the sound shut off altogether.
I love it.. EXCEPT can't use headphones and use speakers at same time

Summary: I have this system and it has been very good. I have used audio/video cables to allow me to connect my cable and vcr, however, I just bought some wireless headphones, but when I plug them into the headphone jack, it doesn't allow me to also have regular sound on. I NEED some way of having another ouptut, right now it will only output through the digital receiver cable that goes to the subwoofer... Is there a digital reciver splitter?
Summary: Great system and sound. I have the rear wireless unit too. Works flawlessly. Why 4 star then? - won't play PAL DVDs. ALL cheap DVD player can play PAL on NTSC TV, don't understand why Panasonic/Sony can't or won't do that.
Summary: i just got this yesterday from my local radio shack. This is the best home theater system i have ever had it sounds just like the movie theater . the bass is awsome with the dual subs it shakes and rumbles like u have never hered. the satilites are very crisp and clear they are very nice.
