Summary: I bought this product back on July 14th 2008, so It is 5 years old! The only problem I have with it is that the rear speakers no longer work and that just happened last month, but besides that, everything is working just fine! I use it work movies but also is on everyday hooked up to my flat Screen TV, So it is pretty much always on. If they still sell this product I recommend it!
Summary: I have been in the home intertainment bussiness before, Panasonic has been around for years and the reason why is thay make quality equipment at an afordable price. The sc-pt960 was easy to set up, has been working great for two years now and the support team from Panasonic is second to none.
Summary: awesome system! sounds great when using optical cables. i thought i was getting true surround with my rca cables until i got fiber optic cables. playing modern warfare 2 online got way more intense. the only problem i have had with the system is interference between blue-tooth connected devices and the wireless rear speakers. occasionally it causes problems with my ps3 wireless controllers, as well as wireless headsets when playing online.
Summary: This system delivers ok sound. It makes speech more understandable to my hard-of-hearing ears. Movies and TV shows are fine but music doesn't sound too good on it. I needed to get another system (Klipsch) to listen to music. UPDATE 1: After about two years, the dvd changer stopped working so now I can't use it for dvd watching. Not a big deal for me since I use a blu-ray player instead. But I can't display the menu on the tv anymore to change settings.
Good system. Wireless rear speakers could be louder.

Summary: Did not like preset Equalizer, No manual operation of equalizer. Wish subwoofer was wireless. too. Took time to setup. The up convertion wasn't worth it. Still want a blu-ray. Lots of remote buttons thet are not ever used.
Summary: This is a friendly user system. The sound is excellent for the prize. I am able to watch more DVD types. The system allows to upgrade the image on my old Mitsubishi projector TV set. The multiple DVD slots are a plus. Using an HDMI to DVI adapter the image quality is excellent. The bamboo speakers as well as the remote speakers deliver excellent sound.
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. Here's the thing. Try to navigate the Customer Support system or talk to the staff at Panasonic. I really felt I had accomplished something when I eventually got to a human being!
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. I realize most systems in this price range don't but for those unknowing souls out there, here is your heads up. still a great system after 9 months.
