The Panasonic SC-PT950 Home Theater in a Box is a 5.1 channel system with 5-disc DVD player, universal iPod docking station and XM tuner. This system is HDMI compatible with EZSync. It has Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 built in.

The design of the SC-PT950 is slim lined, with wireless rear speakers and taller front speakers. The rear speakers, center speaker and docking station are all substantially smaller and easier to manipulate into the environment. The set-up for the speakers is simple, using the Auto speaker set-up and calibration that has been integrated.

There have been problems with this particular system, however. After having the system a while, an error code will appear and your system will shut down. This code, error 61, is difficult for shops to repair due to prices for diagnostics and shipping being more than the system is worth. Panasonic has been notified about this problem and we will wait to see what becomes of the issue.

Review Summary

The Panasonic SC-PT950 is a nice step up in the line of home theater. It is more or less identical in functionality to the previous model, the SC-PT750. The Panasonic SC-PT950 consists of front Tower speakers, wireless rear speakers, transmitter and receiver (2.4GHz), 5 Disc DVD/CD changer, HDMI output up to 1080p. It is capable of reading JPG, MP3, and WMA files with Dolby Digital and DTS decoding. It also includes an iPod Dock, AM / FM / XM radio tuning, multi-room capability with optional SH-FX85 wireless kit, and an easy to Use remote control. The Panasonic SC-PT950 is a great home theater system with lots of features. A 5-disc DVD changer and easy-to use remote are features to please anyone. The most loved feature of this system is the addition of the wireless surrounds. The picture quality is very good on the dvd player and the video can be set from 480i to 1080p with the HDMI output. However there are no bass or treble controls, and the volume dial needs to be turned to listen to DVD/CD's, TV, and also for the iPod. It takes some time to become familiar with the remote control. Nevertheless the Panasonic SC-PT950 is a good system for someone who is looking for a moderate Home Theater System. This home theater system includes 5.1-channel XM satellite radio-ready amplifier with surround sound decoders, progressive-scan upconverting 5-disc DVD/CD player, floor speakers, 1 center speaker, 1 powered subwoofer and 2 wireless rear speakers. The Progressive-scan video output maximizes DVD picture quality when used with a digital TV or monitor. The built-in surround sound decoders include Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS. The over all sound is clear and the subwoofer is very good. This home theater system is perfect for a small living room.
