If you’re the owner of a compatible home cinema system like the Blu-ray SC-BT230, the Panasonic SH-FX71 gives you the option of having your rear speakers work wirelessly instead of having to trail cables from the main unit to the speakers.
It’s not quite as simple as it sounds though. In order to keep the rear speakers small, and to prevent you having to buy a brand new pair, you’ll have to make a bit of a compromise. The main part of the Panasonic SH-FX71 is essentially a wireless receiver, and into this you have to physically connect your two rear speakers – so whilst the system does allow your rear speakers to be wirefree from the main home cinema system – there is still a cabled connection involved. Of course whilst this is not ideal, it should be easy to hide the 165mm square unit, and at least you don’t have to worry about how to route cables through your lounge.
Whilst almost identical to the wireless system for the previous generation Panasonic home cinema systems, the SH-FX71 has a new system which is more tolerant to interference so should give you a more reliable experience.
What to consider before you buy the Panasonic SH-FX71 Wireless Speaker Kit
The height of the main unit is 95mm which will make it difficult to hide it under a sofa – we would like to have see a more flatter design..
