    Default Panasonic SC-BT100 Blu-ray HTIB * HTM


    By Mark Fleischmann • October, 2008
    Price: $1,000

    Highlights:
    HTIB with Blu-ray drive • Wireless surround speakers • Bamboo fiber speaker cones
    Lady Sings the Blus

    How do you define high end? Is it the gear that delivers the highest performance, sells for the highest price, or represents the most agile and innovative thinking? If that last criterion means anything, the Panasonic SC-BT100 is the very definition of a high-end home theater system—in a box. It includes a Blu-ray drive, makes daring use of bamboo fiber speaker diaphragms, and employs wireless technology to deliver signals to those two lonely surround speakers in the back of the room. Moving backward to the second criterion, price, the system sells for $1,000, on the moderate to high side by HTIB standards. And what about the first criterion, performance? Sorry, but you’ll have to read the review. Throw me a bone here—this is how I earn my living.



    Kind of Blu, Kind of Bamboo
    Thanks to digital amplifier technology, this system fits all of its amplification—and that oh-so-desirable Blu-ray Disc drive—into a box that’s one-third the height of a typical surround receiver. And that includes the sub amp. Digital amps are generally more energy efficient because they waste less power in the form of heat. They are well established in compact systems and have just started to take over the surround receiver category.

    In one of many beautiful touches, Panasonic built a flip-down iPod dock into the center of the front panel. It operates through the onscreen interface via the system remote. There’s also an integrated SD card reader, so you can photograph unwary friends and family members, then remove the card from your camera, slip it into the HTIB, and provide your victims with instant replay on your mercilessly large screen.

    It looks a nice system but over here its £650 and you have to buy the rear speakers separately. I thought it was a bit much for an all in one.

    That is bad...I got it from Amazon for just over $600, with rear speakers.
