Been on the look out for one of these and this ticks all the boxes for a reasonable price.

Panasonic home Cinema System. This home cinema has a bamboo Cone Speaker, a rigid low-density bamboo material used in the front (L/R) and centre speaker cones helps achieve a clean, responsive sound. Vocals are pure and clear, and dialogue is crisp and easy to understand.

I've been after these for a while now but never had the spare cash to purchase them. I'll be buying them mid-march and they are still in my Wish list on my Amazon account at £190. I'm loving the iPhone drawer in the front since I now own an iPhone as of Monday this week! Good post mate, thanks.

Remember folks. It's a Panasonic surround system so no DTS from externally connected sources. PITA if you want to connect a PS3/BluRay player etc..

That will be fine. SkyHD outputs HD channels in either Dolby Digital 2.0 or Dolby Digital 5.1 NOT DTS.

DTS is only used in Games/DVD/BluRay discs.

Regular TV only comes in stereo anyway, so it's a moot point.

bit of a daft question but im confused by dts. im considering this system as an option.

if im running a ps3 via optical cable will the sound be in surround? or does the system not do dts for other inputs (except its own dvd tray), some websites say it will so say not!

the only system in use at present would be a sky+ box, would this work via surround? or would it use the surround speakers in stereo rather than proper surround?

the main purpose of the system is for suround during dvd/blue ray playback and gaming.
