Very easy to use. I upgraded from the SC-HT730 and I love the 960. It does not have all of the features I liked from the old system like Party mode and I can't view the count down clock when watching a DVD that I will miss. But other then that Great sound from rear speakers once you adjust the rear volume. Very smooth sounding Bass. Great Unit you wont be sorry.

Worst purchase ever
I consider myself fairly good with electronics (setting them up and using them). This was the worst user-friendly electronics I have had. The remote control doesn't work correctly most of the time....Read complete review
I consider myself fairly good with electronics (setting them up and using them). This was the worst user-friendly electronics I have had. The remote control doesn't work correctly most of the time. When I called for help and was told what to do to fix it, there was nothing in the instructions for me to have fixed myself. The instructions stink also.

Comments about Panasonic Black DVD Home Theater Sound System:
This is the second Panasonic Home Theater I've bought. The other I sold to a friend, but I knew i was going to get another because I loved the quality of the other. I've had this product for maybe 2 years and im pleased with it! It has beautiful, clear sound for music. It has powerful, immersive sound for video games and movies! I dont think I've ever had a problem with it. What I don't like is that the movies don't look all that great on HDTVs. But with a Blu-ray player and an HDTV this surround sound is awesome! If for some reason I get rid of this one, I'm buying myself another Panasonic Home Theater!:-)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best Bang for the Buck
from Sacramento, CA
Won't need any stereo equipment in the house after this, i purchased a model which was one step lower, the rear speakers didn't have stands and the watts were fewer, got this bad boy, oh man, you can have this at any party. I saw sound engineer who owned 100,000 worth of equpment, buy this and said this was a lot better than some of the other fancy surround sounds. Honestly you won't do need anything else.
Nice sound and easy to hook up. No problems yet.

Glad I Bought and Extended Warranty
from Melbourne, FL
The dvd changer died and they couldn't find a working replacement part. I bought a warranty but it's been in "repair" for over a month. They can't fix it so I'm waiting for a formal verdict - exchange or refund. I'm going for a refund.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I purchased one and the DVD tray wont open after playing 10-12 movies. Sound is OK on the audio side. I wouldn't recommend the all-in-one style. Should have purchased the audio separately from the DVD player. Buyer beware.
from Dayton, Ohio
Great system, My only complaint is that for 1200 watts it doesed't get loud enough to really enjoy theater sound. Otherwise, great system

We Hate It
When we first got this it was great. After a few weeks of using it the movies started skipping. We would try differend disk and they all did the same thing. If we took a movie right out of the wrapping and put it in it skipped so I know it wasn't the movies. It seems to do this to more than half the movies we try to watch. I just hate the dvd part of it. The sound of it was great so we still use it but we have to have another dvd player hooked up to it. My husband and I are big movie watchers and some days we just watch seasons and it seems to mess up after a couple hours. So if you have it plan on getting another "cheap" dvd player to use with it.
