The Panasonic VIERA TC-P50C2 is one of three VIERA Plasma HDTVs announced in 2010 as part of the VIERA C2 series. The TC-P50C2 hosts a 50” anti-reflective screen that works well in bright rooms, and happens to be the largest in the C2 series. It hosts a 720p resolution, which Panasonic purposefully lowered to appeal to consumer demands for different resolutions. Like its peers, the TC-P50C2 utilizes a 600Hz Sub-Field Drive with Panasonic’s new NEO PDP technology to deliver improved luminosity with clearer hues. Most notable, though, is the 100,000-hour lifespan. Additional features include three HDMI connections, 2 USB ports, a PC input, and VIERA Link for using a single remote for accessing any connected VIERA Link products.

Can i connect my dennon receiver and surround sound speakers to this unit ( Viera TC50c2) as I did not notice any audio out connections.
Thank you

Yes, this unit has a single digital audio out port.

Generally however, you feed all of your system inputs directly into your receiver for audio, and allow the video to be passed to the TV via the receiver's HDMI output.

Yale's right. You've got those two options. Which method you chose, depends on what model/year of Denon receiver you've got. (1) If you've got a newer model that can handle it, run all you connections to the Denon, and then simply connect to your TV via HDMI. (2) If not, then run all your connections to your TV and connect to your receiver with the digital optical audio (S/PDIF) output on the VIERA.

I use option 2 in my home setup with my Sony TV and an older (crappy) Panasonic receiver. I'm actually very pleased with the setup, since it only requires that I change inputs on the TV for the sound to switch over as well, no matter what I'm doing (tv, computer, xbox 360, etc.)
