Sounds good: Panasonic unleashed 4 new 3D Blu-ray Home Theatres 3D Cinema Surround, Full HD playback, WiFi
Four Full HD 3D Blu-ray Home Theatres (SC-BTT 880, 480, 400 and 300), have been released in OZ with Full HD 3D playback, 3D Cinema Surround for “theatre-like surround sound” through real and virtual speakers.
The new systems which start at $449 for the BTT 300 boast the same sound as a movie theatre says Panasonic, who launched the sound machines in Adelaide last week.
Only the top end BTT880 (RRP $799) pictured, has inbuilt WiFi (others need wireless LAN adaptor), but all have HDMI capabilities, handy 2D-3D conversion and 1000W output power (RMS) except the BTT300.
WiFi capabilities give access to Panasonic’s VIERA Connect, VIERA Link for a slew of entertainment apps like Telstra Big Pond Movies, Quickflix, ABC iView, SBS ON DEMAND, YouTube, Facebook and Skype.
The new home theatres won’t get the jitters either Anti-Jitter Digital Amplifier which cuts distortion, and Panasonic’s Powerful Bass-reflex Subwoofer to produce purer sound.
Pana’s ‘Digital Tube Sound’ has six modes – pop, jazz, classic, and women’s vocal and rock genres.
Wi-Fi capabilities allows the Home Theatres to use content from smartphones, iPad, music players via DLNA and stream music and photos to their system.
The top end SC-BTT880 has an integrated Lightning Pin Dock so is compatible with iPhone 5 and iPod Touch (7th Gen).
You can also control Home Theatre via iPad and smartphones with Remote App, and browse for additional entertainment and movie information.
The high end BTT 880 Home Threatre hit shops in May for $799 as will the BTT 300 model for $449 (above), while the mid tier BTT 480,400 systems will be arriving instore next month.
