Product Description

The SC-XH170 features new high sound quality technology for pure, clear sound reproduction in a sophisticated and stylish appearance. Link to your iPod or iPhone for a variety of entertainment besides movies.

VIERA Link

The SC-XH150 features VIERA Link, a technology that allows a consumer to operate all VIERA Link compatible AV components using only a remote control.

Digital Music Connection for iPod/iPhone

The home theater system is a great way to enjoy the music, video and photo content on your iPod or iPhone. The list of iPod/iPhone content can be displayed on the TV screen, and you can use the remote control from the home theater system or a VIERA TV to select and play it.

Clear Sound Digital Amplifier

The Clear Sound Digital Amplifier analyzes the difference between the input and output audio signals, and makes the necessary adjustments to produce an output signal with the same low distortion as the input signal. This results in sound that is highly faithful to the original sound source.

Audio Return Channel

The home theater system is compatible with the ARC (Audio Return Channel) feature. ARC makes it possible to receive audio signals from the TV, on top of the preexisting HDMI function of sending audio/video signals to the TV with just one cable. This feature simplifies connection by eliminating the audio cable connection between the TV audio output and the main unit's audio input.
* ARC compatible TV is required.

Environmentally Friendly

Panasonic is always working to improve its technology, design, and commitment to the environment. The SC-XH170 is Energy Star qualified.

It is a nice looking system and the sound quality is great.
D. Clemens
It wouldn't ever pick up the signal coming from the TV through the digital line, and the DVD door wouldn't open and made a horrible noise once we inserted a disc.

I had the volume way up to 75 filing the living room with awesome sound!

After watching the first movie with my new upconvert DVD and speaker system I must say I'm very impressed. Next some things others may want to know. The speakers attach to the DVD player, not the TV. The speakers are easy to attach, it's all color coded. Speaker cords are long enough. The ARC works great, it didn't at first. Make sure you hook your HDMI cable to the correct HDMI port, one should have ARC by it, mine is HDMI 2. Set both your DVD player and your TV to the correct setting for ARC to work. I went back through several times getting the speakers to work off the TV alone,(with the dvd player on) think it was the fifth time re-checking all the settings before they started to work. Now for the review. Ever seen a close up on a movie that was so clear of a mans face you can count the whiskers? I can now. yep the picture is so clear on my 50 inch plasma I could count all the whiskers. The surround so crisp and clear from feet softly moving across gravel on the ground all the way up to explosions I could feel pass through me. I had the volume way up to 75 filing the living room with awesome sound! I love my early Christmas present to myself. For those of you hat do not have a Panasonic TV, I doubt if you can get the speakers to work off your TV alone. Foe those that do have a Panasonic TV, go for it!

Update 12-21-12. Second day I had a problem getting the speakers to work with just the TV alone.(works perfect with the DVD player) I turned on both the TV and DVD player. I had ARC on the DVD display, but no sound, all settings were as needed, spent over an hour trying to figure it out. Next day I woke up early to check my local weather because of a snow storm. I turned on the TV, shortly after the DVD player came by itself and the ARC kicked on.

Pros:
*The Viera-Link works with my Panasonic vt25 TV using the newest Firmware 3.5 (I cannot confirm on original factory firmware).
*Sounds wonderful, 1000x better than the TV's built in speakers.
*Has volume equalization. No more loud commercials!

Cons:
*The HDMI ARC connection doesn't work with 5.1 audio. I cannot determine if it's the TV or this Unit that's at fault.

I read all the reviews before I purchased. The only negative is the system is a lot smaller in person than it looks like online. Nevertheless, this small system is just what I needed. Don't know what to say to the negative reviews and the bad experiences while setting up but all of my experiences have been positive. I bought this system because I purchased a Panasonic TV a couple of months ago and the sound from the TV wasn't nearly good enough. OK but had to turn it all the way up just to hear from 20 feet away and don't have a crowd because you would never hear it. I unpacked the system, hooked up all the wires and immediately it sounded great. Make sure you purchase an HDMI cable that will reach from your TV to the back of the DVD player. That's all you will need. I was dreading the setup with turning the TV speakers off and setting the correct input and all that but I turned on the DVD after hooking everything up and it went through this on screen setup and I was done in a jiffy. I didn't know what ARC meant at the time, and still don't but I selected that option and everything sounds great. I have it set up with all the speakers up front by the TV so the wires are not an issue. It even is controlled by my ATT Uverse universal control. Haven't actually tried to play a DVD yet but the unit turns on when I turn on my cable box and TV and the sound is controlled with the same remote. Just like one of the other reviewers stated, there is a slight lag time (somewhere around 10 seconds) where you will have the TV sound only then the surround sound kicks in. I feel obligated to include this review because this was a great deal. The quality and the price. I hope to have eased some concerns. I had plenty prior to purchasing. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will continue to provide quality sound.

This is a decent compact surround sound system that mates up very well with my Panasonic TV. It doesn't have all the goofy features for trying to correct sound like many other cheap systems have. It is quite a good buy all around.

Not bad for the money, thought there could be more to the dvd player though. There should have been more connections for multiple inputs.

Easy set up and it works very well with my 50" Panasonic TV. Replaced
a much older Panasonic Home theater that was analog. The new
one has Veralink as does the TV. So they work well together. No
problems mate!

Excellent sound for a reasonable price. It fits into those small rooms that still beg for a big sound. I would recommend this unit for any non professional sound requirements.
