Thanks for todays review on Blu-Ray home cinema systems.
Having recently purchased the Panasonic TX-37LZD800 TV, I have been considering adding their SC-BT100 system, which I can get for £489.99 from Bennets in Farnham.
Since your guide price is £680.00 this seems to be a bargain? however although giving it a quite good review, it seems you have damned it with 'feint praise' (now I am unsure).
The attraction of using the same make is the fact that the remote controls are interchangeable, with other makes you have to use the control of that system!, is that enough not to go with Panasonic?
I don't know, then again, perhaps a dedicated Blu-Ray system set up with their stand alone Blu-Ray player, and speakers chosen from the wider market is the way to go? except of course this may increase cost by a considerable margine. In my case 'small' is best, and 3.1 would fit better than 5.1 at the moment.
Firstly, good choice on the TV - the Panasonic TX is one of the best out there.
Regarding the BT100: it's a great system that i'm sure will serve you well. The VIERA Link connection you refer to works seamlessly and is a definite consideration in a simple, clutter free setup (one less remote to lose!).
For a 37in TV, I don't think you'll have any gripes with the BT100's image quality, and if it's definitely a 3.1 system you're after you'll find little better sonically as an all-in-one model.
Panny has just unveiled a range of new systems to arrive later this year such as the http://www.avreview.co.uk/news/article/mps/uan/2745 but these will obviously come at a premium, as would going the separates route.
The price you've quoted is better than anything i can find online too, so my advice would be to go for the Panasonic. If it had been that price in the test, it would likely have won!
Enjoy the BT100 and make sure when you buy it you get a decent HDMI cable to connect to your TV. No need to go mad, but worth £20-£30 over the boxed one to make sure you make the most of your system's attributes!
