The Panasonic SA-PT470 is a mid-range home cinema system which not only boasts increased power over the entry level Panasonic ST-PT170, but also an integrated iPod dock.
Aesthetically, the SA-PT470 is very neat – with tidy looking speakers, and a clean uncluttered DVD Player/Amplifier unit giving the whole system a classy but subtle look – one that will integrate well into many different room environments.
Whilst the looks of the system may be quite different to the PT170, the PT470 does share a number of similarities. The speakers are very similar, and both units have the 6.5cm 1-way speaker unit made from Bamboo Cone which has been used to help deliver a clear and powerful sound. The main difference though is that the SA-PT470 has almost three times the power going into these speakers to help the system sound much more purposeful. The all important sub-woofer gets a massive boost with nearly four times the power supplying the 16cm (12cm on the PT170) speaker to add some serious beef to the system. It also comes with the ‘Smart Setup’ system where you position the supplied microphone in your room, run the set up program and let the system set itself up – easy!
The DVD player is capable of upconverting to 1080p to really help get the most from your existing DVD’s and if you have an additional Blu-ray player, you can use this through the home cinema system too. Simply plug in your Blu-ray player to the television, and connect an optical audio out cable to the amplifier. Panasonic have put much effort into integrating their components and owners of Panasonic televisions will get the full benefit of the Viera link with the onscreen menus available.
The main selling point with the SA-PT470 though is the integrated iPod dock. Unlike the similar Sony DAV-DZ280, Panasonic have made the iPod dock an integral part of the player – there are no separate docks involved here. Not only can the iPod be controlled from the remote control and from the on-screen menus, it will also get re-charged when it is docked. Whilst iPod owners will be pleased with this neat solution, owners of other portable music players might be less impressed at having a redundant dock. Luckily though it does slide in when not in use so at least it won’t be visible and there is a USB socket is supplied on the front instead.

THE ACTUAL WHOLE SYSTEM IS THE SC-PT470 AND THE DVD UNITS CODE IS THE SA-PT470 WHICH I ONLY JUST FOUND OUT, HENCE LISTING AS AN SA MODEL (ITS THE SAME THING).
NOT SURE IF I HAVE THE FM AND AM ANTENNAS, HAVE TO CHECK. MIND YOU, YOU GET A HDMI AND OPTICAL CABLE THROWN IN, AS MENTIONED, AND WHEN PLAYING RADIO - IF YOU EVER DO THROUGH THIS - I OFTEN DID NOT USE THE ANTENNA ANYWAY.
THANKS VERY MUCH.
