Summary: I have this hooked up to a Panasonic TV so should work seamlessly using the HDMI 2 ARC (Audio Return Channel) but unfortunately does not always. The front manual input selector on the unit does not work, and the automatic switching from inputs on the TV does not work and requires that I manually turn off the TV or the unit for it to pick up the video input again. Sound is great and the speakers are nice, but the switching funcionality needs desparate help!!!!
Summary: HDMI ports switch slowly, quit responding to the manual buttons on control unit.. Update code process would not load new code. Seems to lock the video to the last HDMI that was turned on, so always had to manually turn off things.
Summary: As you, I wanted to enhance the audio of my TV to match its high video quality. After reading the C/Net reviews I chose Panasonic for reasons of quality and price, plus I anticipated its compatibality with my Panasonic Viera plasma TV. I purchased the SC-HTB770 via the Panasonic website ~ frankly, I'm experiencing more problems with the website than with the sound system, but that's a story for another time. The unit arrived promptly, via FedEX, Friday evening.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient, dollar for dollar this system stands tall!
Cons: not overly difficult to use but not easy either.
Summary: I too have ran into the system not wanting to power up unless you unplug it (which is hassle in and of itself) to reset it. Not sure if it is issue with the unit not going back into a proper standbye state or what. It doesn't happen all the time, is just random and frustrating. Other frustrating issue is it seems you can't turn off the auto shutdown feature that kicks in if the unit doesn't receive an input for 30mins.
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Did not meet expectations, Poor quality, wasn't tested enough before release.
Summary: Panasonic sound system delivered an excellent sound quality for a budget sound bar-subwoofer system. It has a distinctive, modern clean line design. There's also integrated Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming to smartphones. The built-in Bluetooth made it very easy to wirelessly stream audio from my smartphone (I used Pandora and music files to test the sound quality# and it was almost as good as if it was connected via cable.
Summary: This is a good product. It has a nice crisp sound and good deep bass. I liked the design of the speaker system, nice clean lines and it does match my Panasonic TV. This is a solid product if you dou have a Panasonic TV; however, if you do not have a Panasonic TV you start facing some technical issues with connectivity and synergy with non-Panasonic TVs. Before I got Panasonic TV, I tried to connect the speaker system to my other TV via HDMI and it did not work.
Summary: This home theatre system is really all you need to make the programs you watch sound like they're coming from a movie theatre. The sound is incredibly crisp and clean! Setup was a breeze and took no time at all. This is much better than other bulkier models out there which, in my opinion, are an unnecessary waste of space. I'd definitely recommend this product!
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: When this sound system arrived on my front porch I was extremely excited and they managed to pack the entire system in a relatively small package. Having owned other Panasonic products in the past I had good hopes for this new addition and couldn't wait to get it up and running. So let me start by saying this system is extremely flexible in terms of its set up. After opening the box I was delighted to see how organized everything was in its own packaging.
Pros: Compact, Easy to use, Durable, looks great, lots of inputs
