I'm looking at purchasing my first HTIB. The Panasonic SC-PT870GN-K is on sale at noel leeming for $699. One reason why I'm interested in this is that my plasma is also a Panasonic. I would like to take advantage of the viera link. Other than that, I'm a complete noob when it comes to home theatre. Is this model any good? or can you recommend any other system. i'm also looking at buying a blu ray in the future.. can i hook the blu ray player in this system?
here's the specs:
Panasonic DVD Home Theatre System
The SC-PT870 is a tallboy DVD Home Theatre that achieves an extremely pure and clean sound with a powerful bass. The integrated iPod dock gives you a great way to enjoy music and video on your iPod, and VIERA link controls everything with a single remote
