    Looks great! Plays discs? Not so much.

    I watched exactly one and half movies on this system before it shut itself down, and never played again. I was so excited when I got it, but now will seek another brand.

      Nice Theater System

      By 

      from Dayton, OH

      Comments about Panasonic Black Blu-ray Disc Theater Sound System:

      I am pleased with this sound system. Pros: Picture quality from Blu-ray is astounding. The sound quality is good for a compact all-in-one system. Does well at filling the room with sound. It is easy to install and configure, the web apps work well (Netflix, Pandora, etc), the controls are pretty intuitive. VieraLink works well - I can use one Panasonic remote to control Panasonic TV, Blu-ray. Cons: Bass response is just okay - not rattle the windows loud. Youtube web app is limited to low-def/small-resolution video. High definition videos do not even show in search results. There is a slight lag in the audio when connected to TV with HDMI and using only standard surround audio signal processing.

        Comments about Panasonic Black Blu-ray Disc Theater Sound System:

        The sound quality is HORRIBLE. The bass is over boomy and very muddy. The midrange (vocal range) is very diminished and the highs are squeaky and small.. The imaging is poor and has a very very small "sweet spot" (if one at all.) Listening to this system was very fatiguing. watching a movie was difficult. One really has to listen hard to understand what the people are saying. I would not recommend this to any one

          Comments about Panasonic Black Blu-ray Disc Theater Sound System:

          We have a large master bedroom in our rental home, so the wireless surround is perfect as we can't bury wires in the wall. Sound is crisp and clear and Price is unbeatable, especially with the Blu-ray DVD included.

          Service and delivery comments:

          ABT sets the standard in service for other online retailers to try and follow. The system was received probably 48 hours after it was purchased. I saw that it was offered at a $50 discount a week later and they credited my card when I asked.

          Comments about Panasonic Black Blu-ray Disc Theater Sound System:

          This is a great unit for those in the market for a HTIB with blu-ray player. Wireless rear speaker with the option of adding 2 more for 7.1 sound. Picture quality is outstanding. Unit is integrated with my Toshiba XF550 which is a pleasant surprise. Speakers are a little bit bigger than what I expected but not a deal killer. Price is high as with new products but it should come down pretty quickly.

          Comments about Panasonic Black Blu-ray Disc Theater Sound System:

          I purchased this for watching Blu Ray movies and getting a good quality sound and picture. I was pleasantly surprised at how great this unit sounds. It is plenty strong to delilver true theatre sound and the picture is excellent. Was considering a blu ray player with a separate receiver and speakers but the costs for the separate components became very expense [$]. This self contained unit is simple to use and offers less complexity than separate units. Excellent quality. The only complaint I have is that the length of speaker wire poses a problem for the rear surround sound speakers. Since they are so short, I cannot run them around the perimeter of the room. Instead, the wire runs from the rear receiver box accross the floor to the rear surround speaker forcing me to put a rug over the wire (where people enter the viewing area) so no one trips over it. I have not investigated a way to extend the wires yet but this is my only complaint.

          Comments about Panasonic Black Blu-ray Disc Theater Sound System:

          Good quality sound with HDMI and digital optical audio connections to TV. Blu-ray is spectacular. The remote is a bit obtuse and nonintuitive - I have a Harmony universal remote which I use to control this unit, a DVR, and an HDTV in the setup. IPod attachment very nice. The wireless to rear speakers works very well, much better than previous wireless systems I've used. All in all an excellent choice for a home theater-in-a-box with Blu-ray player, AM/FM tuners, and rear wireless speakers. Well worth the cost.

          Service and delivery comments:

          ABT got me this unit before it was available in stores, at a discount price. Thanks ABT!
