Bowers & Wilkins Panorama sound-bar

Good Gear Guide

  • Pros: Show-stealing looks, great sound quality, great virtual surround
  • Cons: Complicated and unintuitive optimisation setup, short on connectors, expensive

Panasonic SC-ZT2 home theatre system

Good Gear Guide
  • Summary: Panasonic's SC-ZT2 is an interesting home theatre system. It's a stereo setup that mimics surround sound, and its thin speakers put out a surprising amount of audio. It is painfully expensive though, so it appeals more on style than value for money.
  • Pros: Easy to set up, good sound from speakers at low and moderate volume levels
  • Cons: Requires three power points, expensive for a stereo system, mediocre surround effect, poor low-end response at higher volume levels

Sony BDV-IZ1000W home theatre system

Good Gear Guide
  • Summary: As an accompaniment to one of Sony’s high-end BRAVIA LCD televisions, the Sony BDV-IZ1000W is a logical choice. It looks great as part of a home entertainment set-up, and it has sound quality that’s streets ahead of any television’s inbuilt speakers.
  • Pros: Good treble, well controlled bass, BRAVIA Internet Video integration, design and styling mimics Sony's BRAVIA television series
  • Cons: Slightly pricey, setup is cumbersome, remote control is complicated and may be difficult to operate

Sony DAV-IS50

Good Gear Guide
  • Summary: The DAVIS50 isn’t invisible by any stretch of the imagination — the subwoofer sticks out like a sore thumb — but it does allow a lot of flexibility in placement, which might make it attractive to some buyers.
  • Pros: Tiny and unobtrusive surround speakers, clear treble
  • Cons: Subwoofer is large and ugly, muddy bass and mid-range
