The Panasonic SC-ZT1 is a fully wireless home theater system.
No longer do you need to worry about a lengthy cable run along the walls of the room to wire the audio speakers with the digital receiver. Using the 2.4GHz frequency band, the receiver is able send uncompressed audio signals to each of the four speakers resulting in a high performance audio sound experience.
Although this is called a wireless system, each of the Panasonic SC-ZT1 speakers will still need a nearby power connection. This is the same for all so called wireless surround sound systems. The SC-ZT1 is considered a 4.0 system as there are only four Sound Slim Speakers.
The system is able to create a virtual 7.1 surround sound by vertically aligning four speakers within each of the four speakers. It’s not the same as true 7.1 surround sound, but it is exceptionally good and wireless.
You’ll also note that there is no externally powered subwoofer. Instead, each of the speakers contains an integrated subwoofer, thus further reducing the number of wires required.
If you’re looking to buy this system, you’ll need to wait until Spring which is when it will be officially available. As well, pricing is also still up in the air.
