It's Cumbersome

Ninjei, Amazon
19 July 2012
  • Summary: This was my very first surround sound system and it's still going strong. It's a nice looking system with decent sound. I knocked off one star because of how obtrusive it is. It's best suited for a dedicated theater room and does not go well with small spaces. Of course you have all the wiring to deal with, but at least you can purchase a wireless receiver for the rear speakers if you so desire. The control let's you change the channels on your tv and turn it off and on.

What a good buy

  • Summary: This machine is great. I was using a dvd hooked to the TV. The pictures and the sound on the TV were not the best.But with the Panas0nic SC-HT740 everything is perfect. Come to think about the sound from the speakers and pictures,they cannot be compared!

  • Summary: This is a very lousy product. You'll enjoy it for about a year if you're lucky until the 'F61' unit display lights up, then its to the trash. As far as troubleshooting or customer support for this one, you're out of luck. Hope you have a warrenty.

Best HTIAB by far !

jj "jj", Amazon
23 October 2007
  • Summary: Bought this (Home Theater In A Box)HTIAB for 299.99 at Best Buy , it came with the rear wireless substation, not completely wireless.The system was easy to install and all surround sound works. The unit came with a tuner (radio) also.Did alot of research on Consumer Reports .com and this unit was rated the best HTIAB,when using HDMI. I would reccomend this system to anyone thinking of a Home Theater System.

Good sound, horribly limited.

WDTSF, Amazon
22 October 2007
  • Summary: I can't believe I bought this. The only input on this is ONE auxiliary red/white audio input on the back of this unit, which is a huge pain, and only one yellow composite video input. HDTV has to go from your cable box/wall to the TV. I have a cable box and an XBOX 360 and this unit only allows me to connect one at a time. Also, when listening to your TV/cable/xbox through the AUX inputs you DON'T GET SURROUND SOUND!

Panasonic has unresolved Error "F61" issues with this system

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 October 2007
  • Summary: BEWARE OF THIS PRODUCT! As soon as I put the system together and tried to put in a DVD, the display showed "F61" and the player would not close. Apparently, my problem is far from unique . According to a internet search on "F61", many people have experienced the this error code with their panasonic home theater units (and other Panasonic produsts), which indicates a faulty or shorted out power supply. Every time the unit powers on I get the error message.

Good for the Money

Palak B. Mehta, Amazon
28 August 2007
  • Summary: I have this system for about 10 Months. I bought it with my TV Panasonic TH42PX60U. It works great and sound is good. I like its Front input port as I connect output from my Laptop to this port and connect my TV with the Laptop, then I can view many online movies just like I am watching it on DVD and it sounds great too. Only problem I have is, it doesnt have many input ports in the back.
