The system includes a 1000 watts full HD amplifier with 2 tallboy front speakers, 2 surround speakers, center speaker and sub-woofer, big spool of speaker cables and a remote control.

Some reviewers find the tower speakers to be massive and wobbly. The system has limited HDMI ports. The Wi-Fi access requires a Panasonic or other compatible Adapter. The auto disc play syncs well only with Viera connect.

Overall, the Panasonic SC-BTT490 with 3D Blu-Ray and Wi-FI HTS is recommended, easy to setup and value for money product providing 3D surround feeling with state-of-the-art technology that produces impressive theater-like surround sound.
