>> Hey everyone I'm Jeff Bakalar assistant editor here at CNET.com and I'm here today with the Panasonic SCPT 750. The 750 is a step off from the 650. It has all the same features as the 650 with a few other additions. It's a five disk DVD changer that can upscale to 720P 1080I and 1080P which is one of the first home theater in a box that actually does upscale to 1080P. It comes with an iPod dock. Also, it has a music port on the front like the 650, which lets you hook up any device that has a line in jack. It also has an XM ready input, which allows you to hook up your XM receiver. The sound on the 750 is just as good as the 650 if not better. You get better quality speakers. And the 750 comes with the optional wireless unit that allows you to hook up your surround speakers wirelessly. Also, like the 650, there's no video inputs, nor is there any digital audio inputs. Unfortunately, like the 650 the video quality is not up to par. Like we said with the 650, you may be better off just using the 480I signal and having your TV do the up scaling. The other difference you'll find between the 750 and the 650 is that this comes in a black finish unlike the silver of the 650. And the speakers, the front speakers are a little bigger than the 650's. Overall, the 750 is a great value. It's a very good home theater in a box. If wireless speakers aren't exactly what you're looking for, we recommend you opt for their step down model the 650. I'm Jeff Bakalar and this has been the Panasonic SCPT 750. [ Music ]
Panasonic's budget-priced SC-PT650 home theater system sounds good for the money and delivers a decent roster of features--but the step-up model is an even better deal.
With its five-disc changer, HDMI output, and integrated iPod dock, the Panasonic SC-PT660 delivers an impressive home theater value for less than $300.
Panasonic's SC-BT300 is a 7.1 home theater system with built-in Blu-ray and its tall-boy speakers help deliver very good sound quality, but it doesn't have the Netflix streaming found on some of its similarly priced competitors.
The affordable Sony Bravia DAV-HDX267W home theater system is loaded with features, but a dearth of inputs and the somewhat-convoluted, wireless rear-speaker setup dampen our enthusiasm.
The Sony BDV-E770W is one of the best Blu-ray home theater systems we've tested, with excellent sound quality, tons of streaming-media options, 3D compatibility, and wireless rear speakers. The lack of HDMI inputs is the only big omission.
Panasonic's SC-BT200 is a 7.1 home theater system with built-in Blu-ray and solid sonics for the price, but it doesn't have the Netflix streaming found on some of its similarly priced competitors.
Sony's single-speaker surround-sound home theater system is sleek, relatively inexpensive, and actually sounds pretty good.
LG's affordable LHT764 home-theater-in-a-box system boasts impressive features, but its sound quality is barely acceptable.
Sony's HT-CT150 sound bar home theater system sounds great and is way ahead of the competition with its three HDMI inputs; however, its IR receiver limits the subwoofer's placement options.
Delivering true blacks and splendid shadow detail, this EDTV plasma is the king of the home-theater hill.
