The Panasonic SC-BT228 is a mid-range to high-end all-in-one home theatre system with 5.1 channel surround sound. Its Cinema Surround system utilizes virtual speakers as well as the SC-BT228's physical speakers for a more realistic surround experience whiles its bamboo cone speakers provide more responsive sound. Additionally, the SC-BT228's HDMI 1.4 Audio Return Channel compatibility allows for a simpler setup.

The SC-BT228's Cinema Surround system employs virtual speakers to round out the SC-BT228's surround sound, emulating the surround sound quality of a 7.1 channel system. Its bamboo cone speakers utilize cones constructed of a combination of bamboo and paper for cleaner audio reproduction. Audio Return Channel compatibility makes setting up the SC-BT228 easier as no additional S/PDIF cable is needed for your TV since ARC allows for two-way audio transmission over HDMI.

  • Blu-Ray/DVD/DVD-R/DVD-RW/CD/CD-R/-RW compatibility
  • SDHC/SD Card port

What's the difference between this model and the BT 230? Can you set up the rear speakers wirelessly?
