The SC-MT1 is an entry-level DVD home theater system from Panasonic, currently discontinued. Four satellite speakers output 30W each, a center speaker outputs 110W, and a 140W subwoofer rounds out the 370W 5.1-channel system, adequate for small-to-medium-size rooms, but potentially disappointing to buyers seeking powerful performance from the rear and side speakers. The speakers and DVD player feature a silvery gray finish and a small form factor ideal for placement on a crowded bookshelf. The DVD player includes basic home theater functionality -- Dolby Digital, Pro Logic, and DTS decoding, and support for JPEG/MP3/WMA CDs, in addition to progressive-scan DVD playback. All speakers are magnetically shielded so that they do not interfere with the TV's signal.
