The ultra-affordable Panasonic SC-HT540 home cinema system is feature-packed. It's neatly put together with two floorstanding speakers to the front and smaller satellite models for the centre and rear surrounds.

Easy to use and install. The sound is very nice, better than I expected.

Possibly too short wires supplied. The fact that the TV isn't automatically muted means you need to juggle the TV sound/SCHT sound to get the best effect.
