Product Details

Panasonic Black 5.1 Channel Blu-ray Home Theater System, Model SCBT230


  • VIERA Cast
    VIERA Cast's assorted online content just keeps getting better - in addition to the popular contents such as YouTube and Picasa Web Albums, it now offers Pandora Internet Radio, movies streamed from Netflix*, exciting sports from FOX Sports, and tweeting web communications with Twitter. No PC required
    • *Netflix unlimited membership required
    • *Design and content are subject to change without notice
  • Cinema Surround
    By using a combination of real speakers and virtual speakers, a more natural and smoother sound can be enjoyed. You'll notice the difference, epecially in an action scene - you'll feel like you're sitting in the center of a true cinema theater
  • Advanced Bamboo Cone Speaker
    With the new bamboo cone speakers, the sound becomes much more responsive. Vocals are more pure and cleaner, and the dialog is crisper and easier to understand than ever before
  • Audio Return Channel
    The SC-BT230 is compatible with a new feature of ARC (Audio Return Channel). ARC allows receiving audio signals from the TV, on top of the preexisting HDMI function of sending audio/video signals to the TV with just one cable. This new feature will simplify the connection by eliminating an audio cable connection between the TV audio output and the main unit's audio input
    • *ARC compatible TV is required
