Panasonic SC-BTT775 Blu-ray 5.1 home theatre

Let me entertain you

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.

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. ®
