The Panasonic SC-BT230 is a high-end all-in-one home theatre system with 5.1 channel surround sound. It comes equipped with Panasonic's bamboo cone speakers which allow for a more responsive sound, a Blu-Ray/DVD/DVD-R/DVD-RW player and a universal iPod/iPhone dock for playback through the SC-BT230's 5.1 channel speaker setup. Additionally, the SC-BT230 features Audio Return Channel compatibility, allowing for a more simplistic setup.

The SC-BT230's bamboo cone speakers have 2-1/2" full range drivers and bamboo fiber cones, made from a blend of paper and bamboo fibers, which achieve a perfect balance of light weight and sound dampening for high-end audio reproduction. Its Blu-Ray/DVD-R/RW drive allows for high definition Blu-ray disc playback and DVD playback with upscaling as well as DVD-R or RW video playback. Its CD and CD-R/RW drive as well as its integrated iPod/iPhone dock provide the SC-BT230 with two very flexible audio playback device options. Its iPod/iPhone dock particularly allows for convenient functionality, such as music/video/photo playback and full on-screen title list display. Its Audio Return Channel compatibility also provides the SC-BT230 with some added convenience as it allows for two-way audio transmission through HDMI cables from your TV, eliminating the need for an S/PDIF cable.
