Product Description

Amazon.com

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.

What's in the Box
DVD/receiver component, 5 satellite speakers, 1 subwoofer, speaker cables, system cable, AM loop antenna, FM indoor antenna, 4 speaker stands, remote control, 2 AA batteries, owner's manual.

It's pretty hefty but definately worth it.
Sara
I called again after one more week and was told the part is on backorder with Panasonic and won't be in for at least one more week.

We would be comfy, watching a movie when all of a sudden, the dvd would stop and the player would turn off an on.

This Panasonic system was an upgrade from a cheap 300 dollar Sony system I had. This system is pretty good overall. The rear speakers sound great, as well as the tall boy speakers. They really do give you great loud theater sound, and the subwoofer really does it justice. It's pretty big for a home theater in a box system, and with your remote it's easy to adjust the volume for the subwoofer, along with four preset subwoofer levels to accomadate those using this in a small bedroom with neighbors, or for those of you using this in your home living room. The only real issue I might warn about this system is the center channel, which has some bad peak noises from time to time. It doesn't happen with most of your movies unless it's one that has been mixed wrong, but I notice with certain TV shows like Buffy The Vampire Slayer, the vocal audio sometimes has a slight hiss at the top of some high or really low pitches. Some other systems you would still notice it with these DVD's, but not as much. Some systems you hear that noise more than others, and this one it seems to be a little more noticeable than some. But overall, this system has the ability to be very loud and envelope you in sound. For 500 dollars it's a great buy, although I do hear a lot of people prefer the Onkyo for the same price, but I don't prefer at this time to have a rear center channel. This is a great set for 500 dollars and if you're not willing to spend money for a system of $1000+, than this is a good setup.
Moving away from the sound quality, this has a reciever and 5 dvd disc changer all in one. Some people warn about heat caused by the reciever on your DVD's, but I've experienced no problem of over heating at all. Don't even worry about it. The DVD changer is high speed and you can change discs by remote within seconds.
All in all as I've said, you get your moneys worth with this.

I just received this theater system yesterday and it is wonderful. I found it very easy to setup, the directions are very easy to follow and understand even if you aren't electronically inclined. Plus the manual isn't a 100 page book you have to read to learn how to run the system.

I love the design of the system also. Panasonic made the DVD 5 disc changer look really cool by making the front of it look like a mirror. Also around the volume knob, it glows with blue light when you turn the system on. The speakers are silver and have a nice design. The tall (long) speakers are the front speakers and the smaller ones go in the back of the room. The nice thing is that all the speakers are capable of hanging on the wall. Also, poles that are attached to the tall front speakers (as shown in the picture) can be used for the back speakers instead if you like. So there are options with this system.

The performance of the system is amazing and at the price I got it for, you CAN"T go wrong. The DVD player is quick when changing discs and quiet. There are also a lot of setup options. You can ajust the subwoofer level from the remote, many different picture views, sound settings for cd's, and speaker adjustments to name a few. Also, there are tons of inputs for you extra devices. I have the VCR and 3 game systems hooked up to it. I also liked the fact that it had the option for component cable hook ups for the TV. I bought some of those cables last night and the picture does look better. I love the subwoofer. It's pretty hefty but definately worth it. There are 4 different bass levels you can set it on and it is POWERFUL. I put in The Chronicles of Riddick and it shook the floor and my cat hid for the rest of the night. You have to be careful though.
