Bombastic home theater system!
 
I just purchased this system 2 days ago and let me tell you it is a BLAST! Though you have to do some tweeking to bring out the full potential of this system. I read some of the previous reviews for this system and let me tell you some of the other buyers of this system did not know how to use this system. First of all the 320 watt subwoofer is fully adustable. So you have to adjust it up to level 4 then press the heavy bass button to bring out it's full potential. Next you need to go under syst...

Lack of digital audio inputs IS A BIG DEAL!!!!!
 
Overall, I must say I am very pleased with the system for what it does. It really does sound great. However, I must take exception to the comments that the lack of digital audio inputs is not a problem. I beg to desagree. This is a medium end surrround sound system that ONLY plays 5.1 from it's own dvd player. What if you also have a satellite or cable HD package? How do you play that 5.1? Not with this SS system, because there is no digital audio inputs!!! Therefore, you cannot listen to th...

Sounded good...for about 30 seconds
 
From the reviews I've read, this system sounded great - and for a great price as well. I did read the review right before this one about the 'F61' error...but of course I thought that was just an isolated case. How wrong I was.I connected my system and speakers exactly as directed. After a bout 30 seconds of music, the receiver reads F61 and shuts off. I tried to adjust anything and everything. Nothing. It just reads F61 for 2 seconds and shuts off. Apparently F61 means there is afau...

great system
 
great system, even plays WMA/MP3 CDs, does upconversion to 720p/1080i. the Sound fields (SFC) are amazing, especially the Sports setting. That reduces the announcers and increases crowd noise. Paired up with HDTV makes you feel like you are at the game. The lack of optical inputs is not that big of a deal, since the system's SFC compensate adequately. Speakers sound great. Included speaker cables are sufficient, I don't see the need to get higher quality wires. All in all, very satisfied ...

Nothing but trouble
 
If you're considering buying this Panasonic system, or any other Panasonic sound system for that matter, do a Web search for Panasonic error f61. You'll find many, many instances of people who have been victims of what is apparently a wide-spread problem with Panasonic products. My surround-sound system was only weeks old when the problem began with it shutting off and displaying this error message. I am STILL waiting for the company to resolve this. I will never buy another Panasonic product. T...

Major Disappointment
 
We purchased the HT940 last night from Best Buy. We hooked it up and watched part of a movie before going to bed. This morning, less than 12 hours after purchasing the product, the F61 error is appearing on the receiver screen and will no longer power up. We will be taking this product back today. What a major disappointment! Don't waste your time or money on this sad product!

Avoid at all costs!!!! F61 ERROR!!!!!!!!!
 
Same problem as described above. Had the system 2 1/2 months and then the dreaded F61 and it was dead. Great while it worked, but it doesn't any longer.

F61" Power issues 1 month after purchase
 
I had my unit for 1 month before experiencing the "F61" many people have seen. I calling their repair shop back and forth during a period of 4 months and it seems that none of the parts that Panasonic sent them could fix the unit. To this date, I still can't get Panasonic to send me a refurbished unit. On top of that, I had to drive the unit 97 miles to the nearest repair shop. I would not recommend this product due to the terrible customer service when it comes to servicing the warranty.

Good & Bad
 
The original purchase of the Panasonic unit went very smoothly.But after 2 weeks of use the unit the audio for the DVD/CD went out.Contacted Panasonic and they referred me to a local repair facility. They took 3 weeks to get parts and fix the unit.But now the unit works very well.I rated it high because it does produce great sound. Next step is to get the remote rear speakers working with the plug in remotes

Don't Buy This Model
 
Loud fan and F61 Error message after about 2 months of owning the unit. Panasonic's phone support is offshore in Manila. Sent it in to repair at a Panasonic service center (not Panasonic but a 3rd party company). Repair took 3 weeks and many phone calls to a very rude staff. 1 month later the F61 message came back. Panasonic told me to send it back in and that perhaps it was a "bad tech". Panasonic needs to step up to the plate and do a better job. Don't purchase this item.
