Great System
5 Star Review   By Ken on 6th Ave Electronics - Nov 15, 2009   

Strengths: Good quality of sound Easy hood-up Support Dolby and DTS decoded Good price

Weakness: Only 2 mode (DVD-P or BD/DVD) Remote - 1. Should have buttons for each mode instead of by holding one button to swith between 2 mode. 2. Should focus on receiver's function,hard to locate volumn but

I have this system for 3 months. It is a great system. I change the speaker wire because I need longer wires for my rear speakers. But this system can only use wires no bigger than 16 AWG. Anything bigger than that will not fit in the speaker and the receiver (the hole is too small).

Best Budget HDMI switching HTIB!
5 Star Review   By 7 on 6th Ave Electronics - Sep 10, 2009   

Strengths: Read Below

Weakness: Read Below

PROS: - Crisp sound with movies and music. Bass is strong but not muddy. Surround sound creates accurate 3D environment. - HDMI switching! - Both video and audio passes through the receiver when it is off to the TV which means that you can use the TV speakers instead if needed. - Conventional speaker connectors which allows you to upgrade your equipment. (not proprietary like many other HTIBs) - Supplied Speaker wires are adequate in length. - Video/Audio Inputs are as follows: 2 HDMI In, 2 Optical In, 1 Coax In, 3 Analog In. - $200 HTIB bought on 6Ave site! Why would anyone buy computer speakers? CONS: - Supplied speaker wires are 22 AWG. - Subwoofer's speaker wire is permanently attached so it cannot be upgraded but you can buy a Powered Subwoofer to replace it. (This subwoofer is passive but I think its adequate for a mid size or smaller living room space.) - Setup Microphone length is only about 10 feet long. - Remote control functions are a little weird which takes time to get used to. CONCLUSION: - This HTIB is definitely the best bang for your money that can rival others which cost $500+. I am totally happy with the $200 that I have spent here. Worth every penny!

panasonic sc-ht56
5 Star Review   By reviewer on 6th Ave Electronics - Jul 31, 2009   

Strengths: Quality, Musical, pricepoint

Weakness: None so far

I purchased this despite having trouble finding enough reviews online. I have been very happy with my purchase so far. Good with movies and at the same time very musical which is what I have found to be a challenge with these HT1Bs. This is by far the best as compared to the other priced in this range up to $400-$500. I had bought a samsung set but it was really crappy sounding with music, went to the store to listen to the sony ht-s360 because i was thinking of changing the samsung with a set of sony ss2300 but the sound was again good for movies but not for music. If you are looking for something musical, feel confident in buying one of these.

SC-HT56 = Quality and Great Value
5 Star Review   By DaveH on 6th Ave Electronics - Jul 14, 2009   

Strengths: Tremendous Value for the cost of the system. Sub very powerful. Above average speakers compared to similar HTIB.

Purchased this system from 6ave.com and arrived within 2 days ($188 plus free shipping). Currently have this connected to a 42" Panasonic Plasma, Sony Blu-Ray, XBOX 360 and Wii - receiver has plenty of connections. Compared to other HTIB options, I would rate the speakers as above average and the Sub as very powerful. Receiver has the ability to play lossless sound decoded from Blu-Ray player for tremendous movie audio. The receiver is “intelligent” in that it switches to standby mode when my television is turned off. Only small negative would be the rear speaker wire is short in length although most people will probably upgrade the wires anyways. Having the flexibility to make the rear speakers wireless is also a great feature (additional equipment needed). I compared this to both the Sony HT-SS2300 and HT-S360 all of which are made for an existing Blu-Ray/DVD player and for the money chose this Panasonic system….it has not disappointed and I HIGHLY recommend it.

Great entry level home theater system
5 Star Review   By wake1080 on 6th Ave Electronics - May 29, 2009   

Strengths: Great sound for the price I paid. Easy to hookup. Works great with my PS3.

I purchased this system when it was on sale at 6ave.com for under $200 shipped. It is a great entry level system. I am no audiophile but I think this system sounds great in my house. I purchased it to hookup to my PS3 (for movies and games) and TV. I hooked it up to the TV using an optical out cable from my TV to the Panasonic SC-HT56. I have my PS3 running to the Panasonic SC-HT56 via HDMI and then HDMI from the Panasonic SC-HT56 to my Samsung LN52A630. I really like the fact that I can have the SC-HT56 powered off and still run my PS3 just fine and have the audio come through my TV speakers (wife insist on this when the twins are sleeping downstairs). I also noticed that when I have my Samsung LN52A630 and the SC-HT56 powered ON, that if I hit the power button on my Samsung TV remote it also powers OFF the SC-HT56. This is nice as it saves me having to grab one more remote to power off the SC-HT56. When I power ON my Samsung TV with the TV remote it has no effect on the SC-HT56. I have friends that have spent way more than me on their surround sound systems, and I can tell that theirs do produce a better sound than mine, but not enough for me to justify spending the $600-$1000+ that they spent on their systems. I am very happy with this setup. To the person asking. It comes with everything in photo (receiver, 1 center channel speaker, 2 front speakers, 2 rear speakers, 1 sub, wire for all speakers, mic to test audio, and a remote).
