Summary: I purchased my Sc-PT960 on 11/17/08. I was looking for a mid range theatre system to compliment my Panasonic TV which I like. January 2010 - The unit won't power up. Although the unit is barely out of warranty on time the power supply crapped out. I doubt we had more than 20hrs use.
Summary: Many have mentioned the subwoofer control. The remote near the bottom has a dedicated "Subwoofer Level" button which toggles X1, X2, X3 (shows on display) so you can cut the sub down enough for apartment listening. X1 is still audible but pretty quiet.
Pros: Good sound, wireless surround worked first time, excellent sound. Need to use remote DolbyII button between "off", "Movie", "Music" to acchieve best surround. (Off= 2.1 stereo). The big surprise was how well the surround worked with just plain TV sound stereo into the RCA Aux input.
Cons: Not a con but mine is the SC-PT760, same remote etc.
Summary: Comments about Panasonic SC-PT960 Home Theater System: You have no idea what you're missing if you don't have a home theater system. This one even docs with the iPod for an amazing sound experience.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Setup, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass

Cons: the one thing that i was a little dissapointed with, i would have to say the wireless speaker, not because they are of poor quality;but because they require to be plugged in to a separete receiver, which then transmits to the main receiver...so techincally the speakers are not wireless....the spe...
Summary: I tested wireless speakers in several other rooms, and it works well. I plan on buying the additional speaker kit, and putting a set in my game room.
Pros: This thing rocks. I have a huge living room, with a 42" plasma..and I have the wireless speakers on the other side of the room, and it sounds great. Took awhile to figure out all the settings to make the speakers work all the time, but once you figure out what's what, it's a good system for the p...
Cons: Need to keep your wireless phone away, or it'll cut out. It's not a Bose, but for the price it does a good job.
Pros: Very easy setup, and the rear, wireless speakers work well. No problems with my wireless router, wireless print server, or phones, which are in the same room. Rear speaker volume works well with DVD, but sometimes needs adjustment for Pro logic sources (stereo sources). Works well with movies.
Cons: Do not expect hi-fidelity. Music is bland - no sizzle, and bass can be sloppy. This device is a quick, easy solution for movies, but not for the discriminating listener. If you have never owned / heard a quality system, you will be very pleased. The usual warning about the lack of connectivity op...
Summary: Excellent sounding system, with great high and low range. Only complaint is that it is advertised as having dts decoding capability. This is not the case on any external device such as a wdtv, roku, or any media player. It only decodes when using the built in dvd player.
Summary: The sc-pt960 is a great system and sounds great also. The manual is vague and it took me about 3 days or so thru trial an error to get it tweaked to my liking. A few reviews have said the rear speakers are weak, but you can adjust the speakers to fit your taste.
