Product Description

Size Name: 400W

Product Description

The Panasonic SC-XH70 DVD 5.1ch Home Cinema System features a 1080p Up-conversion function that converts standard-definition images (720×576 pixels) from DVD sources into high-definition images (1920×1080 pixels). These up-converted signals maximize the performance of HD flat screen TVs, providing vivid, sharp and exceptionally detailed high-resolution images.

This model is compatible with the ARC (Audio Return Channel) feature, which makes it possible to receive 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 feature simplifies connection by eliminating the audio cable connection between the TV audio output and the main unit's audio input.

The Panasonic DVD Home Cinema Systems are easy to install and simple to operate. All models offer a Selectable Speaker Layout that allows the speakers to be placed in front of the listening position for a surround sound effect. The layout can be selected to match the living room.

Easy Setup makes it easy to position speakers and set audio output levels based on simple on-screen guidance, thus enhancing movie viewing with the best possible acoustic environment.

This model is compatible with VIERA Link, which lets the user operate the home cinema system with VIERA's remote control. Operation with a single remote is easy and comfortable.

Panasonic SC-XH70 DVD 400W 5.1 Channel Home Cinema System (New for 2012)
Arrived on time and set up with just front speakers and subwoofer. Tested radio and good sound, and very loud if required. Tested TV sound through system and much improved on the TV speakers as expected. Played DVD through TV and picture quality good. All seemed well until the sound level turned to low whereupon the DVD/cd platter could be heard rotating. Tried various disc's incase the disc was the problem. Unfortunately not. This item returned and new one received the next day (Great Service) Set up and alas the same problem. Since when I will listen to the system in my new place the sound will not be set to low !!!!! So for me a minor inconvenience. For the price it is a good system. If you like low volume not for you, if your set is more than 3 metres from listening location it would not be heard(Platter that is). Decided to keep system as within budget and for the money its OK.

This little unit has shocked me over the last weekend i have purchased 4 surround sound cinema systems and all i wanted them to do is connect to my HD tv and play optical audio in place of the tv's standard speakers also to connect to my pc and do the same.
the three other systems audio was intermittent the sound would drop out every few seconds one of them i could not make the audio match the video which was a Philips unit and the problem did not look like it was getting resolved as no firmware update was working, it seems most of these lower priced units are only made for dvd/blue ray cinema experience.

So buy this unit use my experience i am glad to say i do not have to return this system :D so far fingers crossed.
while searching for a surround sound cinema system visiting numerous shops not a single person could answer my most basic of questions at least not with a straight answer use reviews :P

i have tried

Samsung
Philips
Polaroid

and this unit knocks spots of them as said there are better units out there but you will pay a huge amount more then £150

This is ideal, I wanted something small in size but with some power and this fits the bill perfectly. As our lounge is only small a larger system would be too obtrusive, but having 1000w output it really shakes the walls when you want it to. I also have a Panasonic TV so the veira link means you can watch movies or listen to your music from a usb stick with ease. If you want a low priced sound system with big noise then buy this!

Panasonic SC-XH70 DVD 400W 5.1 Channel Home Cinema System (New for 2012)

Sadly I was misled by most of the reviews for this product, as it was only after ordering that I discovered they were for a different model. They were for the more expensive Panasonic SC-XH170 DVD 1000W 5.1 Channel Home Cinema System, having said that I am most impressed with the SC-XH70 package. It is very easy and straight forward to install/set up and the sound is more that adequate for a 'Home' TV surround sound system. The speakers and DVD are well packed and protected for delivery, speaker cables are supplied as part of the package which aids installation straight out of the box. The front, centre and rear speakers are small, but the sound quality is excellent, clear and crisp. The Subwoofer although quite small in size gives very nice Bass tones and can also be controlled independently to the other 5 speakers and this allows greater flexibility in the setting up your system. There are 'Scart', 'Phono' and 'HDMI' connections on the rear, but sadly no 'Optical' connector which I believe should be provided as standard in this day and age. I have not used the DVD other than to check it was working OK when setting up, but all seemed fine and to the usual standards, also I have not experienced (to date) of any problems with any 'noisy' DVD/CD platter, that was reported in another review of this product.. Perhaps worth pointing out that the setting up of the speakers, etc. needs to be done when DVD mode is selected on the remote control (press Start) or read the Operating Manual supplied. So to sum up overall, it is a well produced package giving a very good surround sound experience for the price tag.

Purchased this from Amazon Warhouse, was still a brand new product, all wrapped and sealed.

Primary use for this is to complement existing Panasonic G20 plasma TV which has VIERA link and ARC. Therefore as soon as you turn the TV on the speakers also turn on and even using the sky remote to adjust volume adjusts the speaker volume rather than the TV. Was a bit fiddly to set up, need to remember to enable ARC & VIERA link on the DVD setup menus.

Other than that the speakers are fantastic for less that £150, and easy enough to operate for my parents as use existing setup - nothing changes! Impressed overall.
