Panasonic detours into furniture making with SC-HTF5 Theatre Rack Speaker system

by Shayne Rana

Panasonic may be a formidable name in the Av biz but they’re deviating a tad bit in to the furniture market with their new Theatre Rack. The SC-HTF5 is a rack that comes with a built in bar type speaker system. The system total consists of 2 full range speakers (6.5cm diameter), with a 2.1ch constitution with 2 sub woofers of 8cm diameters. I have to admit the rack does looks neat enough to suit almost all households and would go with pretty much all kinds of furniture layouts and settings. The speaker is equipped with HDMI so you can hook it up to any TV placed on top. It’s designed to support up to a 46-inch Plasma. If used with a Viera the Dolby Professional logic system can be utilised via HDMI. It weighs in at about 35KGs and comes with a full function remote control. The SC-HTF5 Theatre rack will set you back $700 which is about 60,000 Yen which is not too bad.
