The new models, SC-BTT770, SC-BTT370 and SC-BTT270 deliver sound quality that complements the 3D images. Based on the concept of reproducing an ideal cinema-like surround sound environment, Panasonic's proprietary technology, called Cinema Surround Plus, reportedly compensates for the lack of a surround effect to provide smooth surround sound and offers an enhanced surround effect from above and around.
Featuring Panasonic's 3D Playback, the new systems allow the user to tailor the image display as desired. The 3D Effect Controller adjusts the amount of the depth effect for more expansive images and enables the viewer to enjoy 3D movies with the preferred level of 3D effects.
The main component measures only 1.5 inches high. The systems are designed to match a flat panel display. The new table-top design of the SC-BTT370 offers easy set-up and will add style to any home setting.
The SC-BTT770 is equipped with rear wireless speakers and wireless kit so there is no need for wires across the room. The SC-BTT370 is wireless-ready and can be upgraded to provide wireless rear audio with the addition of the optional SH-FX71 wireless kit for rear speakers ($129.95).
