Panasonic SC BT100 ... new interactive capabilities like Final Standard Profile for enhanced commentary, audio mixing and picture-in-picture features previously unthinkable in the DVD format. With Blu-ray, you'll never have to leave the couch for a big-screen quality movie experience.
Combining a PHL Reference chroma processor with advanced P4HD (Pixel Precision Progressive Processing) imaging technology, UniPhier - the precise digital video processor - reproduces crisp, natural colors that are extremely faithful to the original movie. It does this by up-sampling the color information in decoded video signals, while the super high-speed P4HD up-converts content recorded in 480i/p, 720p or 1080i format to 1080p by correctly generating each pixel according to information drawn from up to 60 surrounding pixels. The image motion of each pixel is then categorized into one of 16 levels, from stationary to super fast. Image quality is further enhanced by diagonal processing, which creates smooth, sharp diagonal lines, and 3:2 pull-down, which optimizes the processing accordingly for film or video making the images look natural and lifelike. In addition, the BT100's HDMI output is deep color compatible, with 4,096 steps of gradation for even smoother, finer-quality images that meet Hollywood's stringent demands, so you can experience movies just the way they were meant to be experienced.
With precise digital audio, Blu-ray's beautiful images are complemented by exceptionally pure, accurate sound thanks to the included 5.1 channel surround sound of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD and expandability to advanced 7.1 channel surround sound. Use of a highly rigid bamboo material in the center and front speakers helps achieve an extremely pure, clean sound. A Kelton Subwoofer system with a dual diameter structure delivers a deep, powerful bass. Whisper-mode surround allows you to enjoy rich surround sound even when watching movies at low volume.
The built-in universal dock for iPod gives you a great new way to enjoy music and video. Just slip your iPod into the cradle and enjoy. The dock charges your iPod, allows you to use the home theater remote to control the iPod, has on-screen audio menus, and also plays back iPod video. You can also use the system's convenient SD card slot, which allows easy viewing of hi-def videos and photos on your VIERA HDTV.
The newly enhanced VIERA Link displays a menu on the TV screen, making it easier to operate your connected Blu-ray Disc home theater system. For example, you can display a menu with a list of the movies or music stored on your iPod, and use the VIERA remote control unit to select one and begin playback.

I got this piece of kit just over a year ago now and the sound is fantastic! Normally retailing around £650 I picked this up from John Lewis for £399, what a bargain. So let's get down to what the system offers. The 3.1 system offers a whopping 1000W split over the 4 channels. Positioning the speaker's central, Front left, Front right and subwoofer makes the setup easy with the colour coded cable ends. You will need to go out and buy a HDMI lead as you don't get anything with it. When you enter the installation screen for the first time just run the basic setup which will take you through every step of the way with default volume per speaker, you can go back ...
