I bought this to replace a Samsung home theater system where the IR in the head unit went south. Set it up with a 70" Sharp LED and it's just totally amazing! First movie with the new system up and running was Captain America on Blu-ray. Un#freakin'#believable on the picture and sound quality. The only thing else I'm gonna do is to add an independant receiver. If you're looking for an outstanding HT solution, this is it. Can't go wrong here. There are higher priced systems, but this works great.

Got This For Christmas, Hooked it up last night. Was surprized it didnt come with wireless built in for the cost. I notice a upgrade in sound but only had it wired aside big screen tv, didnt want the wires for the surrond sound speakers across my living room. They wasnt long enough anyway. Didnt have HDMI ARC connection on my Tv but figured out how to get sound through AUX cord. Some reason I had to keep going to menue to set it as AUX hookup. I put it all back in box today, dont know what to do with it. Packaging was excelent and instructions very good. Maybe Im too old at 62 for this setup. It did do good on the music vedios I had on but wasnt worth the trouble. Nice looking set, A younger kid would enjoy it in his bedroom Im sure. I do like my music, Ipod connection was neat. Wish I knew what to do with it now. Maybe give it to a kid next Christmas or birthday. Not for me, if you want better sound for tv just get a sound bar for it.

Amazing Sound Quality!!!

I purchased this to go with my 60" Panasonic Plasma TV. The sound was not that great when I originally hooked it up to the TV. The guy from DISH NETWORK recommended a digital optical audio chord. Once I connect this to the Blu Ray into the TV, the sound improved by 100%. The first movie I watched was The Bourne Legacy on BluRay. The sound was amazing! You could hear EVERYTHING! The gun shots were startling to some of my guest! LOL!!! I have a 16 x 16 home theater room without windows, and when I have a movie playing, it actually sounds like I am at the movies!! This is an awesome product!!!

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I have been unable to actually try the product as I have been waiting for the Stand that I ordered from a furniture store and it just arrived yesterday. I then set up the 60" Panasonic TV (TC-P60UT50) that I purchased from Walmart and it was missing to the ferrite core that was to be connected to the HDMI cable (that was not supplied per the book). In addition, the top right hand corner of the TV had a dent in the metal on the back before we took it out of the box. I doubt that this will affect the quality of the picture or the life of the TV, but it shows that Panasonic has a problem with packaging. Then when I opened the Panasonic SC-BTT196 5.1 CH Home Theater System, it was missing the speaker cable for one of the speakers and the 6 screws that were to hold the tall speakers together. This seems like a small thing, but it is a big inconvenience when you are working to get your new system set-up. It seems that Panasonic has a problem with packaging. More than likely, next time I will purchase from a professional store that installs and guarantees the quality of their products.

i bought this for my TV cause i felt it was nothing without a home theater system this one seemed really a good value so i bought it so unfortunately my TV is not a 3D but my friend has one so i will update if im able to but im putting this for the awareness of what it has available and quality of the sound which is very good the sound is much more amplified i hear sounds that i don't normally hear from the TV speakers or my headset to my gaming system it plays iPod/MP3 and able to hold pictures and videos (SD card needed) and radio also a wireless network system (adapter needed) but can be wired now the main thing about this is if your connecting a gaming console like i did it will take up the main ports of the audio outputs but luckily i had additional ones ( my TV is a vizio other brands might be different) so i just bought a audio cable (the one with the yellow, red and white which is like $10 in walmart) i just used the red and white for sound, now this system also has a main dashboard that you have a input like HDMI cable to see so make sure you have the cable otherwise you cant setup your system propertly, i also had the trouble of trying to figure out how to get the sound to play while i game which is not hard at all there is an IPOD button on the controller that changes the input settings (put it on aux for sound through TV and console which is why i bought the audio cable white and red) and when you want to view the dashboard on the system just change it back to HDMI (ARC is what they call it on there for some reason) but those are the only issues that i had with the system other than that i love it if anyone has trouble i will be more then happy to help you set it up as best i can just put it on the comments or questions if you want to know more. P.S. in case anyone is not sure of what HDMI cable to get i put the cable that i bought really cheap and sturdy they come in 2 other smaller sizes but can only be PURCHASED ONLINE ONLY and also the cable that i purchased for the audio which comes in 2 sizes i also found the red and white only but didn't find it there at the store but up to you which one you want can be bought in the store like i said.

I bought this to go this my 42" Vizio, didn't work so well. Great system sounded good for just general movies or listening to Pandora. I have younger kids so can't turn up the volume to rattle windows anymore, so it did the job. But it didn't seem to be compatible with the Vizio TV as far as user friendly or at least my husband, couple friends or either tech support could seem to figure it out. We would always have to mess with the inputs and if you turned on one before the other then you were switching the input again. My kids gave up and could never you figure it out. I returned it only for the not so user friendly reason. Otherwise sounds great

Great sound quality. No way anywhere close to the 1000 watts mentioned in specs (standard false spec ratings by all brands these days). My only complaint is that there is no input? I can't plug in any other source? The front display could be a little more functional. Makes you feel like you have to boot up the TV display just to turn on the radio (so you can see what you are doing).

It does not preform as advertised it is not a 1000 watt system if it was it would be very loud but it is not and sound quality is poor people who think it sounds good do not know good sound in home Entert ainment systems and is not worth the price for what it puts out.
