Panasonic has announced that its first fully wireless home theater audio system made for Full HD 3D is now reaching store shelves. Panasonic's new SC-ZT2 is a wireless, design-matching solution for the Full HD 3D home theater system. It produces simulated 7.1-channel surround sound while using only two speakers. When paired with the new Panasonic DMP-BDT350 Blu-ray 3D player, the SC-ZT2 provides the high definition surround sound audio portion of Full HD 3D.
The SC-ZT2 is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), which allows receiving audio signal from the TV through a single HDMI cable. This new feature simplifies the set-up by eliminating the need for a separate optical audio connection. It also supports Full HD 3D images and video.
Panasonic's advanced proprietary virtual technology lets users hear Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD 7.1-channel surround sound with only two speakers. Each speaker houses four one-inch tweeters. The slim design and vertically aligned tweeters improve performance in all listening positions.
The speakers also employ an integrated long-stroke woofer, with a diameter of approximately five inches, which generates sounds from the low-frequency range to deep bass. It uses a Down-Fire structure which uses the floor as an acoustical reflector to enhance bass performance. With woofers in both speaker stands, listeners experience bass sounds from the front, back, left and right sides of the system.
The Panasonic SC-ZT2 wireless audio system includes two slim pole speakers and a wireless receiver. A natural complement to a flat-panel TV and Blu-ray player, the SC-ZT2 is now available with a suggested retail price of $999.95.
