Product Description

Panasonic Blu-ray Disc home theaters have been developed under the concept of reproducing an ideal theater-like surround sound environment. The SC-BTT190 employs advanced technologies to reproduce clearer, enhanced theater-like surround sound to skillfully match high-quality 3D imagery. The integration of smart networking functions including Smartphone remote control, DLNA, Wireless LAN, digital music connection for iPod/iPhone and VIERA Connect complements traditional home entertainment for an enriched, user-friendly audio/video experience.

3D Cinema Surround

Equipped with 3D Cinema Surround, the BTT190 produces impressive theater-like surround sound through a total of 30 real and virtual speakers. Sound is perceived as coming from the correct direction thanks to Panasonic’s proprietary direction perception control technology. Additionally, Anti-Jitter Digital Amplifiers reduce jitter and distortion that can affect audio clarity, producing pure, brilliant high-quality sound.

Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback

The advanced 2D image technologies of the Panasonic Hollywood laboratory have also been applied to 3D image playback, providing high quality images of the film that is approaching that of film. Lifelike 3D beautifully reproduced images leap off the screen with enhanced depth, luster, and texture.

VIERA Connect

Enjoy a wider variety of Internet content with family and friends from the comfort of your living room. The BTT190 is equipped with VIERA Connect, which has been expanded to offer users a wider variety of online content. From sports and video-on-demand movies, as well as streaming content, to gaming and communication, users can find a wide-array of content which has been improved for greater convenience and enhanced enjoyment. Users can also utilize their home theater systems to easily connect to Netflix, Cinema Now, YouTube, Facebook, and Skype. *To enjoy the content, you will need to insert an SD card (1GB or more of free space/sold separately). 

Panasonic Smartphone Remote Control Application

The Panasonic Smartphone remote control app enables users to easily operate the system by tapping and swiping their Smartphone screen. Users can easily input characters with the keypad on their Smartphone to access their favorite sound effects, and can quickly search for additional entertainment and movie information. *Requires the device with the app installed and the home theater to be connected to the same home network.

Smart Home Networking

The BTT190 is a DLNA-certified home theater system that is easy to use with your home network. The DLNA function allows users to access, browse, and view content stored on a server while in another room without having to worry about shuffling discs. The smart network is made possible with the help of an internal wireless LAN capability on Blu-ray Disc home theaters which eliminates the need for a LAN cable connection.

External HDD Playback

The BTT190 is compatible with NTFS (NT File System) format external hard disk drives, so you can enjoy music (FLAC, MP3), photos (JPEG, MPO), and camcorder video content (AVCHD, MP4) archived on an external HDD.

Alright, here's a completely honest review from a guy who's been shopping around for a good entry level system. I am in my 20's, newly married, and not able to afford an elaborate home theater system at this stage in my life. If you want a fancy system with every last up-to-date bell & whistle, then I would say search elsewhere, but if you are looking for great sound for a really low price, then look no further. For the $200 I paid on Amazon.com, I couldn't be happier. Following are some things I would like to comment on, and even though this is a long-ish review, I sincerely hope it is helpful to you or that some of the tips make this item even better! Just know that I am so pleased with the value I got from this system that I felt compelled to write a lengthy review, so that should be a testament to its quality! :)

1. This system is a Home Theater In-a-Box. Therefore the speakers plug directly into the blu-ray player itself. No need to worry about buying a separate receiver. That said, because this is an entry level system not designed to be a big receiver, the input options are very anemic; there is only one optical input and no HDMI inputs. This however, is not necessarily a problem as some people complain it is. My TV has enough HDMI inputs for the player, my DirecTV satellite box, and my Xbox 360. From the Xbox and the DirecTV cable box, I have an optical Toslink cable plugged into a separate optical cable switcher I got for ~$5 at Monoprice, and this is wired directly into the receiver. This way, I preserve the 5.1 surround sound output from each device. This is the ONLY way to do this if you want to preserve your 5.1 output. Simply plugging HDMI's into your TV, then having one optical cable run from your TV to the 5.1 system will not work as TV's can't strip the 5.

VERY HIGH:LY RECOMMENDED! This system is incredible...

That said, initially, I was so disappointed that I was began shopping for a replacement. After reading another Panasonic review, I easily found the SOUND section on the HOME display and switched it to heavy as recommended. WOW! It's like a completely different system. PHENOMENAL and I thank this reviewer and AMAZON for great products, great product support and for providing this kind of information in reviews. I AM ECSTATIC and highly recommend similar Panasonic systems without reservation.

Easy to install and connect - great price, humungous sound (how do they do that with these little speakers?) - and A GREAT VALUE.

I received this system as a gift that was purchased at a box store. Setup was easy and everything appeared to be working well. I was replacing a Samsung DVD Home Theater system that I had purchased about 5 years ago. I would say the sound a little better than the Samsung system but being 5 years newer I expected that. My problems started with Blu-Ray playback. I put a disc in to play and it started off great, sound was good, picture was good. About 1 hour into the movie the unit just turned itself off. At first I thought it was a sleep mode type of thing but after digging I didn't find any settings for sleep mode. So I restarted the disc and it played for about 5 minutes before turning off again. Everytime I've tried to play a move it turns off after about 1 hour the first time, and then if restarted right away about 5 minutes into it. If I let the unit rest for a half hour or so before restarting the movie it will play for about 20 minutes. Once I started having these issues I began to do some more research on problems with this model. I found a few others reporting this same situation and on the panasonic help forums they had a reply about a resetting procedure that was suppose to fix it. I ran through the process and then restarted my movie. It lasted about 20 minutes again and then turned off. I have found that a few other people have mentioned overheating issues with their units which sounds like what mine is going through. I have my unit on an open glass shelf with nothing within 6 inches of the sides, front, back, or top of the unit so it shouldn't have any heat related issues unless there is some kind of manufacturing defect. I listened real close when I first started the unit and I could not hear the cooling fan running, I believe this is why my unit is overheating.Read more ›

I recently received this really nice Panasonic BluRay player & spent an hour or two fiddling with the settings and configuring various things like my iPod...

Once I received and installed the WiFi device and connected with my home networking, all became virtually perfect -- a firmware update ran smoothly, news channels, weather configured for my local area, and great access to websites like my music at Pandora, my movies at NetFlix along with a set of spiffy videos at YouTube!

I then went on to find a few days later that I had an apparently unresolvable streaming issue with NetFlix, which would intermittently hang during playback. Resolving the hang required a hard reset (power button for 10 seconds) of the player to restore the WiFi network, but the hang would happen again (and again) when I was streaming a movie -- unbelievably irritating!

Some web research on this issue brought my focus to the source... NetFlix is over-pushing the stream! I was then able reset this setting at my NetFlix account (use the 0.3 setting) and it hasn't hung since!

Am still happy with the box ;)
