The SC-HT920 home theater system from Panasonic packages a high-end, all-in-one receiver and five-disc DVD player with six powerful surround-sound speakers. Connect your TV to the SC-HT920 and you have an instant home theater with power, versatility, and high-quality audio and video.
At the heart of the SC-HT920 is a sophisticated, flexible, easy-to-customize core component for both audio and home theater. The receiver's Dolby Digital and DTS decoders provide crisp, clear sound, and Dolby Pro Logic II Surround yields richness to movies and music. The SC-HT920 has three surround modes: movie, music, and panorama. These settings can be altered to fully customize your audio experience.
Give your sound further definition with the SC-HT920's sound enhancement modes. Panasonic's Sound Field Control features six preset modes for music that can add extra punch to all kinds of musical styles. The Super Surround mode simulates multichannel audio for discs not recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS sound. Panasonic's Center Focus mode enhances the dialogue in movies and TV programs by concentrating it into the center speaker. You can adjust individual speaker levels to create a perfect sound. After all the audio settings meet your approval, you can preserve them in memory to immediately recall them the next time you watch a movie.
The SC-HT920's DVD player produces a remarkably vivid picture and lifelike sound through progressive-scan technology, which yields high-resolution visuals with eye-popping colors and a minimum of onscreen distortion when used with a digital television set. The player also offers a wide variety of viewing tools and options, including variable speed search, slow motion, freeze frame, digital zoom, and a memory function that automatically returns you to the point on the DVD that you last viewed.
In addition to playing regular DVDs, the SC-HT920 plays DVD-RAM, CD, CD-R, MP3, WMA, and JPEG discs. An AM/FM tuner is built into the unit with 30 presets for your favorite stations. The receiver supports a wide array of audio and video components--CD players, tape decks, DVD recorders, VCRs, and more--and has a variety of audio and video inputs, including composite, component, S-video, and digital connections.
The all-inclusive SC-HT920 has a full set of six speakers to create a full, realistic multichannel surround-sound experience in your home theater: two front speakers and two surround speakers with adjustable height speaker stands, a center speaker, and a subwoofer. The primary speakers utilize Panasonic's unique tall, thin design and reach 44 inches tall when the speaker stand is full extended. The front-channel speakers put out 170 watts per channel, the surround speakers have an output of 70 watts per channel, and the subwoofer kicks out 260 watts per channel.
The universal remote control included with the receiver allows you to control the other components in your home theater, as well as all six speakers in the multichannel audio array.
