    SC-HC35 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Sound I'm frankly baffled by all of the positive reviews I've read about the HC35 from various websites. I'll admit I've never been overly impressed with Panasonic's products, but in light of overwhelmingly positive reviews, I took a chance and bought one. Big mistake. Yes, the sound is clear, but there just isn't enough of it. After I adjusted the bass, treble, and preset equalizer (must be done via the remote—another drawback), the sound still was not as good as the shelf unit I was going to replace (which cost a lot less). In fact, it was not as good as an older boombox I have that also cost much less. I am returning the unit and will look at other brands. To me, the HC35 is just not worth the money. My advice is to test it out thoroughly before you buy it. It might work for you. It just wasn't my cup of tea.

    Owner's Manuals
    • What do I do in the unit has no power?
      If the unit is not powering on, remove the power cord plug from any power strip it may be connected to and plug directly into the wall outlet.
    • How do I connect a Panasonic home theater system to my TV?
      Panasonic recommends that you use an HDMI cable to connect the HDMI output of your Blu-ray disc player to the HDMI input on your TV. Then place your TV on the correct HDMI input using your TV remote control.
    • What should I do if I am not getting any sound from the center or the right speaker?
      Center Speaker
      Check the speaker wire connection on the back of the unit. Unplug the speaker wire from the back of the unit, and then reinsert it into the center speaker slot on the back of the unit. Next, go to the unit's audio settings and perform a speaker test. If you are using a stereo channel source or the unit has no center channel encoded, turn on the "Super Surround" option.

      Right Speaker
      The right speaker of the center channel is a "Super Tweeter" it along with the full range speaker produce a more natural sound even though you may not hear audio coming from the super tweeter. Super tweeters produce high frequencies which may not be heard at all times.
    • How do I use the ARC feature with my home theater system?
      ARC is an abbreviation for Audio Return Channel. To use this feature the HDMI cable you are using must be compliant to HDMI v1.3 spec or later. Older cables may not work correctly.

      VIERA Link can work with either the HDMI- ARC feature of a compatible TV.
      For ARC usage make sure that the systems HDMI ARC port is connected to the TVs ARC port.

      1. Press [HOME].
      2. Select "Others" icon and press [OK].
      3. Select "Setup" and press [OK].
      4. Select "Audio" and press [OK].
      5. Select "TV Audio Input" and press [OK]. Then select the "ARC" option.

      Afterwards the TV's ARC feature will control the home theater system and the sound from the TV will be heard through the systems speakers.
