Blu-ray Disc Home Cinema System

By using combination of real speakers and virtual speakers, the listener is encircled by surround speakers and more natural and smoother surround can be enjoyed especially in action scenes such as car chase scene, as if you are sitting in the centre of the theatre.

With the new bamboo cone speakers the sound becomes much more responsive. Vocals are more pure and clearer, and the dialogue being crisper and easier to understand than ever before.

PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus is a high quality image-processing technology developed by Panasonic to precisely process each pixel of the Blu-ray Disc video signal in the vertical direction. It reproduces colour data with twice the accuracy of conventional systems to keep colours faithful and sharp.

High precision 4:4:4 signal technology processes each pixel of the Blu-ray Disc video signal in the horizontal direction to complement vertical direction processing. When viewed on a high end VIERA TV model, which features 4:4:4 signal compatibility, it recreates images with the original film quality to further enhance movie enjoyment.

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 TV audio output and main unit's audio input. * ARC compatible TV is required.

I bought this system in early June 2011.

The instructions were easy to understand and I set up the system within an hour including lifting the carpet to hide the cables for the rear speakers.

I linked the system to a new 42" Plasma Panasonic Viera and the tv remote control immediately controlled the cinema system. A wicked feature was a picture on the tv which showed the 6 speakers laid out around the tv and you then test each one to get the levels right. You have different mood settings for the sound which is helpful too.

I watched a standard dvd of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows delivering an upscaled picture which was pretty good. The sound was only on half when I started but as soon as the film began I could feel resonance through a solid concrete floor and the sofa vibrated from the 1000 watt speaker output. My girlfriend and I could not believe the effect it created and laughed at the unbelievable power of such a small system.

The surround sound almost has you ducking in the seat with the expectation of being hit by something it is an absolute thrill to the senses.

I then watched Wolverine, Kickass and A team on bluray which gave me my first spectacle of Bluray quality and I was delighted at how clear the picture was, the sound is just like a cinema if not better as it is soo close.

This little system punches way way above its weight and I fail to see how spending thousands more to get bigger name system would benefit anyone other than an av purist.

My advice is buy it.

 5.1 Surround-sound Quality - Brilliant!

Had this item for a year now and wouldnt be without it. Blue-ray disk tray a bit slow to respond, but HD quality of drive is superb. Remote settings are simple. I have to keep the woofer on setting #1 since the wife wont allow me to use level #3 or #4. It still rocks the room though. It can be creepy watching horror with sounds rising behind you, but action films with surround sound cant be beaten,
