Summary: I can't believe Panasonic stopped making this home theater system. This is the only product of it's kind, it can record any song from any source split it,label it and save it as a mp3 in your library on the hard drive that's built in. You can stream, wirelessely and load all your mp3s from your computer to the theater system up to 80 gig.
Summary: I have had the same issues with the unit freezing up, and this time it will not unfreeze. Unit is stuck on a "please wait" message - like a computer that cant boot up. Called Panasonic support and they couldnt help me. Now I have to send the unit to a service center in Seaside, CA.
Summary: I've had this system for over 3 year's now and it has been in the shop or needed repairs more than it has worked.. The hard drive has died, it has had intermittent issues with just shutting down on it's own and now the wireless speakers make a continuos clicking noise.
Summary: When i got this i wanted to update the firmwire on it. So i called the company and they sent me the free disc to do it and that didnt work. So i went back online and downloaded it again. And burned it and then it workd that time. But the HDD is the best thing you can ask for cause that cuts back on cds you hav if you have alot. and i do. But yes i love it and if i know about this system b4 i would have cut back on looking for the less costing 5.1 system.
Compact system,Great movie Sound, Good Stereo Sound
3 February 2010
Summary: This item had a original MSRP of 799.95. Sound is very good for movies but for stereo sound its good (not great). The best thing about this system is it is a 3.1 (no center channel) so it creates really good sound in a small package and everything is in one unit. From what I've heard the Denon systme is better but you would have to spend alot more. Overall I am pleased with the system.
Summary: GOOD SHAPE AND EXELENT WORKING CONDITION.I DECIDED TO BUY IT DUE TO I NEED A GOOD SOUND SISTEM FOR MY FLAT SCREEN ALSO A PLACE TO STORE MY SONGS. THIS SISTEM IS JUST WONDERFULL FOR A SMALL PLACES WHERE DON'T WNA'T TO DISTURBE THE NEIGHBORS.
Summary: This unit is just ok when working normally. But as other reviewers have noted, it frequently will freeze up refuse to operate, requiring unplugging of the unit, and re-booting. Telephone customer service with Panasonic was a nightmare. I brought it in for repair under warranty to an authorized serivce center. The shop kept it for 2 months, returned it to me in worse condition than before.
Summary: Good Product Our use is specific - office based -- and it appears to work - piping music into different rooms - though because bass is on a different channel, lacks the bass response in these other rooms which are wired with paired wiring. Also realize it appears to need to have a TV attached to take advantage of full programming capabilities.
Summary: I have had the system for two weeks now. The concept for this system is in general good and here is what I have experienced with the short time: 1. The freezing/hung-up issues that others are experiencing, I discovered it is a problem with the HDMI sync protocols. EZ-sync tries to sync with your TV but the fact that you are using a different brand it fails, panics and hangs. These issues are prominent if you are using different brands of equipment connected via HDMI.
