1250W DVD Home Theater System


Premium Sound 1250W DVD Home Theater System with Kelton Subwoofer, 1080p Up-Conversion, Integrated Universal Dock for iPod®, 2 Tower Speakers, Wireless Rear Speaker and VIERA Link™


Premium Sound Quality
Use of a highly rigid bamboo material in the center speaker helps achieve an extremely pure, clean sound. A Kelton Subwoofer system with a dual diameter structure delivers a deep, powerful bass. Whisper-Mode Surround allows you to enjoy rich surround sound even when watching movies at low volume.

High Quality Picture
Panasonic DVD home theater products feature a 1080p up-conversion function that converts standard definition (720 x 480 pixels) images from DVD sources to high definition (1920 x 1080 pixels) images. These up-converted signals draw out the maximum performance of an HDMI compatible 1080p HDTV, giving you vivid, sharp and exceptionally detailed high-resolution images to enjoy1.

Wireless Features
With the included Wireless Kit for Rear Speakers, no cables means no clutter. You can also expand your music listening into three additional rooms with the wireless multi-room speaker kit (SH-FX85 sold separately). Play your favorite music from your living room and listen to it in your bedroom, in the den, or even in the garage2.

Easy Media Linking
The built-in Universal Dock for iPod 174; gives you a great new way to enjoy music and video3. Just slip your iPod 174; into the cradle and enjoy. The dock charges your iPod 174;, allows you to use the home theater remote to control the iPod 174;, has on-screen audio menus, and also plays back iPod 174; video.

Easy to Use and Set Up with VIERA Link 8482;
The newly enhanced VIERA Link 8482; displays a menu on the TV screen, making it easier to operate your connected home theater system. For example, you can display a menu with a list of the movies or music stored on your iPod 174;, and use the VIERA remote control unit to select one and begin playback.

  1. Video sources converted to 1920x1080 resolution, while of high quality, will exhibit somewhat lower subjective image resolution than true, native 1080p full-HD sources. See dealer for details.
  2. Transmission distance is limited. Performance will vary depending on room size and other conditions.
  3. To enjoy iPod 174; Video content, please connect your home theater sound system with composite video cable.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Sound! This is the second Panasonic Home Theater I've bought. The other I sold to a friend, but I knew i was going to get another because I loved the quality of the other. I've had this product for maybe 2 years and im pleased with it! It has beautiful, clear sound for music. It has powerful, immersive sound for video games and movies! I dont think I've ever had a problem with it. What I don't like is that the movies don't look all that great on HDTVs. But with a Blu-ray player and an HDTV this surround sound is awesome! If for some reason I get rid of this one, I'm buying myself another Panasonic Home Theater!:-) October 24, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Bang for the Buck Won't need any stereo equipment in the house after this, i purchased a model which was one step lower, the rear speakers didn't have stands and the watts were fewer, got this bad boy, oh man, you can have this at any party. I saw sound engineer who owned 100,000 worth of equpment, buy this and said this was a lot better than some of the other fancy surround sounds. Honestly you won't do need anything else. June 27, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great System Nice sound and easy to hook up. No problems yet. May 2, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWSOME! i bought this to replace a more expensive set-up, and this one sounds cleaner and louder and sooooo much better! easy to set up and use, and its ggggggggggreat! i totally recomend this!! March 27, 2010
Rated 1 out of 5 by Glad I Bought and Extended Warranty The dvd changer died and they couldn't find a working replacement part. I bought a warranty but it's been in "repair" for over a month. They can't fix it so I'm waiting for a formal verdict - exchange or refund. I'm going for a refund. February 24, 2010
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor Quality I purchased one and the DVD tray wont open after playing 10-12 movies. Sound is OK on the audio side. I wouldn't recommend the all-in-one style. Should have purchased the audio separately from the DVD player. Buyer beware. February 12, 2010
Rated 3 out of 5 by Volume Great system, My only complaint is that for 1200 watts it doesed't get loud enough to really enjoy theater sound. Otherwise, great system January 18, 2010
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst purchase ever I consider myself fairly good with electronics (setting them up and using them). This was the worst user-friendly electronics I have had. The remote control doesn't work correctly most of the time. When I called for help and was told what to do to fix it, there was nothing in the instructions for me to have fixed myself. The instructions stink also. December 30, 2009
