Default Panasonic SC-BT200 Question

I read about this new blu-ray home theater system. It sounds like a pretty good package. If I understand it correctly, the blu-ray unit also functions as a receiver, thus cable or satellite can be connected and run thorugh it to utilize the home theater sound system? Is that correct?

I have the BT100, I got it last Christmas, and it does incorporate the Blu Ray and the home theatre system in one receiver. I really like it a lot, because the tv is also Panasonic, the Viera link handles everything for me, I would say that if you are a real audiophile, you probably would not be pleased with it, but if you are like me, and just want something decent to play the HD sound that the Blu Ray produces, and hear your TV sound better, you would probably like it.

The problem with including the player in with the amp/receiver component is you cannot upgrade the system piece by piece like you can if you bought a HTiB system with the BD player separate. Usually the combo units like this use proprietary connections with very limited inputs available and can even use non standard ohms for the speakers, so you cannot even upgrade the speakers at some future point.

No question though that adding surround sound just makes movies so much more involved and is a starting point that is recommended if the budget doesn't allow for separates, or a HTiB system with a dedicated receiver separate.

Enjoy!
