Panasonic SC-BTT270 review | What Hi-Fi?

The handiest method you have to stand out on the planet of Blu-ray-in-a-box programs could be not to tick each spec box going.

And that just goes to turn how much you get for your cash – almost each and every cinema device delivers nearly every feature you have to want. The SC-BTT270 is no exception.

Bags of options
The ticket (and audio system) may well be small, however the feature-count isn’t. It’s 3-d-capable, has 2D-to-3-d video conversion, built-in wireless and get admission to to Panasonic’s new-look Viera Connect web TV service.

And there’s extra: an iPhone/iPod dock, a USB enter, DLNA media streaming, HD audio interpreting, a virtual optical enter and an FM radio. No HDMI inputs, although.

Viera Connect has the similar fundamental however purposeful appearance as we’ve observed on the new TVs, however while YouTube, Twitter and Acetrax are present, iPlayer is still pending.

The speakers are tiny. And the compact dimension is the sure side to the common build quality and design.

A snappy blast at the speaker check tone will let you check you’re stressed out as it should be and set your speaker levels.

Subwoofer lacks oompf
The Green Zone Blu-ray proves they combine neatly, passing sounds round smoothly and speedily, even if they can get a little bit most sensible heavy, no longer least when there’s quite a bit to procedure.

Sub integration is fine, but alternatively, it doesn’t have a lot of oompf.

Music courtesy of the iPod/iPhone compatible dock sounds as you may be expecting: ample for background fodder, but you wouldn’t need to be getting a party started. It’s a bit brilliant and insubstantial.

We’re happier with the image. Dark scenes lack a little bit of insight, however in a different way it’s detailed with DVD and gives spectacular depth with Blu-ray – even more so 3-D content with a compatible TV.

You can recuperate sound even at this money, but it surely’s churlish to gripe an excessive amount of.
