Rated 5 out of 5 by from edit to previous review i have already posted a review, but i have an update to my sound problem. it turned out that the reason it was cutting out was because my components were getting very hot due to lack of ventilation. i solved the problem with a few fans in my entertainment unit and have not had any sound cut out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good for the price Reveived as a gift. was pleasently surprised. especially like the two optical audio inputs. i was able to hook up my xbox 360 and directv reciever to the system and i get surround sound from both of them. bluray movies look and sound awesome. 7.1 surround sound is totally awesome. small and compact, which is a plus. the only issue i have is that the sound cuts out for a split second, but comes back with no prob.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from second guessing I loved the picture and sound this gave me hard to get the volume of the speekers ajusted always had trouble hearing the voices and the sound affects blew you out, and now 4 months later it quit playing blue rays says they are incompatable well this unit we were told was a 1080P in fact it is an 1080i so now we have to take back to american they send it in and if it cannot be fixed they will give us a new one i was told this was 1080P should not have done this after 4 months plays regular DVD's all day. Beware

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Just bought this system.....The blu-ray player displays pink, blue and green lines that randomly roll up the screen during a movie play. Taking it back........sound is Ok.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Step down from SC-BT200 The Technical Specs here on Panasonic website are incorrect. SC-BT203 doesn't have a microphone included, or any automatic speaker setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Time Blu-Ray Home Theater Wanted to go for a SC-BT303 from Sam's Club but decided to go with the SC-BT203 from Costco since I didn't need the extra 'functionality' and also the family room didn't fit the giant speakers. So far loved everything, wished the reference about wireless speakers was clearer when mentioning that a separate component needs to be purchased. (SH-FX70)
