Summary: I bought this dvd/stereo system to get me by for my year tour in Korea since i couldn't bring much with me. When i got it i felt the speakers were pretty cheaply made, especially the front with the flimsy thin/hollow plastic base. The sound quality was decent enough to get me by for the year. But the dvd didn't make it that long. After about 10 months it died on me. Wouldn't open, couldn't switch functions or anything.
Summary: I love everything! The system gives good sound, dvd is perfect. No any complains so far. The price of this product is unbeatable. No matter for me it's refurbished or brand new. It's working properly.
Summary: I bought 2 of this item and the system works very good. The service from this buyer was excellent and i would buy from them again. The sound quality is very good and the wireless speakers allows us to take them outside for a party or just to enjoy music. Highly recommended item.
Summary: This is a very nice stereo for a low price. The sound is quite impressive and I am almost happy with it. One clear disadvantage is that the rear speakers can only be connected using the wireless system. This prohibits to connect any other speakers than those delivered. E.g. connecting existing speakers that I have in the wall doesn't work. I bought this system cheaper, as refurbished.
Summary: I have a Samsung TV like an earlier poster. I found that by running leads from the TV audio out, to the Panasonic's aux audio in, then going into the tv menu and setting it for external speakers, this system works fine in TV mode. Setup was easy and sound is great. This one is a keeper.
Summary: I purchased this stereo for less than 30% of the MSRP as refurbished. I was worried that there was limited settings due to other peoples reviews, however, I discovered that this is untrue and that the features are semi hidden. If you press and hold your SW Level button you can set speaker volumes individually. I prefer SW -4 decibels, and LS and RS +3 decibels. For Aux: (Mono and stereo RCAs) Press your DPLII button to either Movie or Music for simulated surround.
Summary: If you looking for a HTIB this System is great with it's 1000w sounds comming through-out your room. Have a HDMI connection for the upconversion five disc DVD plaver, just awesome for the price. Exactly what I was looking for with the intergrated I-pod system and rear wireless speakers. Very stylish looking too. Can't go wrong, trust me.
Summary: Maybe the customer service is bad, but that's no reason to give 1 or 2 stars. Their policies are always against the customer's interests. I really like the sound and the idea of the wired/wireless surround speakers. The DVD player could be better, but it's not bad. Everything is good, but I haven't tried it with an ipod yet. Setting the whole system up wasn't a problem, because i am somewhat used to it.
Summary: We wanted a simple system with a good reputation and wireless speakers. When we saw this one at our local club warehouse at $299, we had to get it. We needed 2 HDMI cables because we were connecting our TV, a satellite box, a PS3, and the Panasonic DVD player. We were able to get surround sound going except for the PS3. One call to Panasonic and we had an American helping us. My husband could not be happier for the price we paid.
