            Comments about Panasonic Black 5.1 Channel Blu-ray Home Theater System:

            Let me preface this by saying I consider myself a little bit of an audiophile; I pride myself on my music and my movies sounding pristine. So, needless to say I was a little hesitant about buying this home theater-in-a-box for my girlfriend. But, I did my research and decided on the Panasonic SC-BT730. The setup was quite easy. The first thing I did was plug the wireless transmitter into the back of the player/receiver, put it in its nest, then plopped the rear speakers* in their places. The "tallboys" assembled easily enough, and while I was a little worried about tightening the screws fully, they held together fine. Due to the living room setup the wireless receiver sits next to one of the rear speakers, so the cable from the far speaker barely reaches... but it did indeed reach. Next I setup the two front side speakers and the center speaker, noting the heft of the center speaker as I did so. These also setup easily enough that my girlfriend's 11 year old could have probably done it. Lastly I connected the HDMI cable and antenna then quickly and eagerly swooped up the plastic, styrofoam, and twist ties strewn about the floor. I powered up the TV, flipped to HDMI input and turned on the BluRay... and we had blast off! I was apprehensive about the long power up time, but was relieved to find that the second time I turned it on it was much faster (even with fast start up disabled). I followed the easy on screen instructions (oops! Left the wireless receiver off), plugged in the mic for auto speaker calibration (buzzzz, buzzzz, buzzzz), and immediately played with the other settings. After I was happy with my setting choices I turned to my girlfriend's favorite FM station and made sure it came in crystal clear (it did... as much as FM can) and programmed in a few other stations (which was pretty intuitive). 20 minutes later we were settled in (I rented the new Clash of the Titans specifically to test out our wonderful new toy) and were immediately immersed in a torrent of surround sound and visual goodness. Every time something passed "behind us" and I could *hear* it back there I would grin and momentarily flash-back to the mid (or was it late?) 80s when my father had the first surround sound setup I'd ever seen (outside of the theaters) and how giddy I was then. I have the speaker setup reversed, if you will, with the "tallboy" speakers as the surround speakers, and the satellite speakers up front. The couch is against the wall and I don't wish to mount the satellites, but since the tallboys and the little small monitors are both 60w with the same response (120Hz - 20kHz) and the same impedance (3ohms) I thought "what the heck", and so far it's worked out well. I'll end up playing with their locations and swapping them around, but until I decide on some speaker stands it's more than functional. The overall sound is great. The sub-woofer, of course, isn't what a powered one would be, but it produces enough to make you feel it. The tallboys, middle speaker, and the surround speakers all produce a nice clear sound... not tinny at all. While there are, of course, limitations to what a small monitor's capable of, these exceeded my expectations. In summary, I was very happy and quite impressed with the great sound this HTiB delivers, and especially for the price! I've been a fan of Panasonic since I can remember, and they once again demonstrate why.

                All the way over my expectations. I replace my old 500w Pro-Audio home theater by this one. One week later I'm still impressed not only by the power, but by the quality of the sound to. And for the price, I can't ask more.

                  Recieved this product within 3 days of ordering it. Set up was EXTREMELY easy. Had it out of the box and was using it within 30 minutes ! Love the Viera Cast features and Look forward to the New Add ons as they become available. The Most important features of this product, for me, was that the Rear Speakers are Wireless and all the other Speakers were Wall Mountable Optional. Being an APT. Renter, I went with not mounting the Speakers to the wall and This is a Wise Choice. Appeance overall is Fine. There is nothing distracting at all about this unit. The ONLY issue/s I have is, The Rear Speakers could be Louder. I am sure there is a way to correct this, I am still learning more each day, just haven't come across a way to correct this. and lastlely, but not as important, I would love it if there were more Viera Cast Apps. Overall, for the Price, ease of Setup and Most important , for the Entertainment factor, I Can't reccommend this unit enough! its a must have for the Price! Shop around,you will be amazed as you shop different websites how low the Price you pay can be. I hope you all enjoy this product as much as I do.

                    This is the first major purchase of a theater system I have purchased. I good a pretty good deal on it as I kind of back ordered it.I have been exploring it for a week now and I am very impressed. The main unit is really fast. It reads any disc I have put in so far. The Front speakers are very easy to mount. They come with base plates very convenient and saves a lot of space! It has this sleek shiny black color and is light too. the woofer is loud! With cool equalizer settings. A note you should remember about the "rear wireless speakers" is that there is still speaker wire connections with these, however the wires from the 2 rear speakers are connected to a wireless terminal box(about 5 X 5 inches), and it is this box that is connected wirelessly to the main Unit. The Ipod Dock is really cool, reads quickly and you can use the main unit remote control to operate the ipod as well. I'm impressed with this system and recommend it for any living room entertainment lover.
