Besides we already know about the 2.1 Blu-Ray System SC-BTX70 offers, the Panasonic SC-BT205 5.1-Complete is also for a fair price of 999 euros to EIA similarly. Thus, the entry-level of home theater comes all the way with the new lossless sound formats to fully enjoy. In addition to basic things such as playback of all high-definition video and sound formats, the Panasonic system will turn an arsenal of multimedia features with: USB, SD card slot, iPod dock and integrated YouTube and Picasa features as well which are back on board. Whether the 5.1-Set both in the field of image and sound quality as well as function as a media server can convince us, we will find them it here in our test.
Front Mainunit of Panasonic SC-BT205
Cleanly integrated, extendable iPod Dock
Slide drive with low-class modern storage
Well processed volume knob button
The Panasonic SC-BT205 "command center" shows typical pleasing design
Ordinary processing, but relatively simple materials in the speakers
Withheld compact subwoofer
The processing unit of the player is excellent. With low gap dimensions, illuminated volume control, the hidden iPod dock and the closed BD / DVD tray provide a simple but elegant appearance. Embedded basic controls on top of the device (Play / Stop / Smart Setup / Close Open / OnOff) provide fast access even without a remote control. This follows the model already tested in the SC-BTX70 and there is as simple but clear and sufficient. The relatively high front and Rearboxe is somewhat shaky, despite the broad base. The finish of the surface is deep black and high gloss and the speakers are small, but elegant fine grinding. As for the weight and the processing of falls back on but that one had to save for the 999 EUR price target. The cable system is something just under the cross-sectional size and not interchangeable. The internal structure of Mainunit is convincing, with clear and good wiring board layout. Overall score in relation to the price category: very good - excellent.
