Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Musical box?

With music, the sound limitations become a little more pronounced, especially with content audio of the MP3 variety. The speakers are a bit on the bright side, though they’re certainly quite capable, pulling out some unexpected details from Janelle Monae’s busily exciting The Archandroid album. The subwoofer can sound a little thin too, without the kind of grunt required for say, your average Basement Jaxx album.

Panasonic SC-BTT775

The speakers sound the part but the plastic look won't be for everyone

Verdict

Panasonic’s premium Blu-ray-in-a-box package ticks boxes for convenience and for sound quality, but its upscaling abilities aren’t the best and the cheap-looking speakers won’t appeal to everyone. But so long as your focus is on movies rather than music, then the SC-BT775 works out as an extremely versatile system with lots of interfacing options. Indeed, as intended, its ability to deliver with film soundtracks is certainly good enough to make it a strong contender to become your home entertainment hub. ®
