My question is. . Is it possible to use a philips HTS3450 surround sound system without the blueray player?


Depends on how you intend to hook it up otherwise you will get no sound from the speakers if you delete the DVD player from the circuit. The speakers require a power source and this is provided via the DVD player.

You cannot connect those speakers up to an amplifier or an AV Receiver because the speaker connections are not compatible. The connections to the speaker wire where they plug into the DVD player would have to be changed because there needs to be a left and right wiring connection for each speaker.

So if I were you I would not mess with the system and just route everything via the DVD as it is designed to be done.

I want to use my TV's speakers with Samsung ht320z not surround sound.How?


You have to hook up the audio cables to the TV from the DVD stand alone player. Red and White is audio and Yellow is Video. The player will play movies and the sound should go to your TV speakers. If not you will need to set it on the TV in the audio source to play from your speakers on the TV. John

Have lenoxx ht 500 surround sound speakers & dvd but dvd is broken, need to purchase another dvd player but can't source lenoxx model, what other models can i connect surround sound to? or whe


If your surround sound receiver unit has rca audio inputs(red/white), you can hook up any brand of DVD player that has rca outputs. You would hook the yellow output from DVD player to yellow input on TV. Hook red/white output from DVD player to red/white input on surround receiver. Hope this helps.

Panasonic SC-HT900 Home Theater System with 5-Disc DVD Changer
Very attractive system with many features. Progressive scan DVD player looks great on my projector, thanks to the high end video circuitry in the 5 Disc DVD changer. Sound is very clear and accurately reproduced though the six speakers. Movie dialogue comes through very naturally. Does a fine job at decoding Dolby Surround. Movie "bass" effects are clear and pronounced through the active subwoofer. I've tested this system in store next to an expensive Bose and the quality is more or less comparable. It is a known fact Panasonic DVD players are among the best in the business. Many more expensive DVD players(costing considerably more than this system) made by other brands use Panasonic internals for their players.
All DVD players must contain an MPEG decoder. In addition, progressive scan DVDs must contain a special device called a deinterlacer. Interlaced video frames are sent to a television in two pieces, by first drawing all of the odd lines, then the even ones. The deinterlacer essentially doubles each frame of video(producing a very defined picture) by filling in missing information. That is the true meaning of "progressive scan." This is the basis for HDTV, and be aware that your (Projector,TV,LCD) must be able to display HDTV or progressive to take advantage of this great feature. As with any other product, deinterlacers vary in quality and must be able to handle various film encodings. Panasonic uses top notch internal hardware to perform the deinterlacing(DCDi) and decoding. The results are spectacular!
Don't expect the bass to blow your ears out - no system at or near this pricepoint will. The subwoofer is powered but yet conservative (but more than other systems in its class). Don't buy this unit to play at maximum volume. System can be cranked up to loud but not extreme voulme. Sound will be more than enough for rooms This unit also makes a great system for listening to FM Radio, CD/R etc. Unit supports many types of Discs. Music seems rich and pleasing, in some cases exceeding much more expensive units.
The speaker stands will save you the cost of buying wall mounts. This system has a plethora of features that are stated in the manual. For example, there are multiple surround modes, seating placement adjustments and digital input capability. Unfortunately the owners manual is written like an engineering course lab manual - so it may take the non- technical some time to learn all of the arcane features. Also, you should purchase at least a 16 gauge spool of speaker wire - do not use the doorbell wire that is supplied with the unit.
Overall I will give this unit 5 stars, because it is priced very well with respect to its competition (Sony Dream system 990) and it exceeds that and other products in its class in terms of quality and features. On the other hand, if you desire a very loud, extreme bass systems - don't consider a home theatre in a box. Purchase a component receiver/amp with large poweful speakers. And of course, a Panasonic progressive DVD player for the best video!

Hello Sir, As I wish to buy a home theatre speaker system.And my budget is upto Rs.5500.I have searched for the same in internets,I found two products that are compatible to me.The products are iball...


Both the speakers you have mentioned are multimedia speakers and don't have Dolby Digital, ProLogic or DTS decoders built in. So if your DVD player does not have 5.1 analogue out , only two speakers will work.
Among the two the creative sounds better but like you mentioned the I ball has a remote and higher output on paper !!.
My recommendation is Logitech X-540.Check the link below.

I CAN NOT GET ALL 5 SPEAKERS TO WORK


I know this is not the answer that you want to hear, but: That television is not capable of delivering audio output to all 5 speakers - it is a stereo-only TV, which only delivers 2 channels.

Furthermore, that Coby DVD-937 only has Digital Audio outputs rather than inputs, which is very strange and complicates our problem immensely. You will get 5-channels with DVD or radio play, but getting 5 channels for TV is not possible without additional equipment.

The manual for the Coby mentions a "Digital Decoder Amplifier," which would work. You would connect a digital audio cable from the area marked "Coaxial" on the back of the Coby to a digital audio IN on the back of an external amplifier. You would connect the speakers to this amplifier, instead of directly to the back of the Coby. Then you would need a cable or satellite box with digital audio outs (fairly common nowadays) to another digital audio IN on the back of the amplifier. The cable or sat box you may have already, but you may need to purchase such a "Digital Decoder Amplifier" or other digital amplifier with appropriate speaker wires and 2 digital audio input slots (not to mention two digital audio cables). Fairly complex. Possibly expensive.

No voice sound through speaker with DVD system, only music?


first check the settings on the audio menu of the dvd player. make sur it is set to 5.1 (if available) otherwise set it to stereo and your system should decode it.
assuming the second step is okay : as other dvd you play seem to work) it still may be that your unit is decoding stereo inputs just fine and 5.1 is not working properly....
so if adjusting audio settings in dvd play back menu dont work,
check that the cables to the satellite speakers are connected correctly and all plugged in soundly ( voice is high frequency,- coming from satellites - the garbled noises you hear are the base ( low freq) elements of voice which are coming from the bass box ( that the X.1 part of 5.1) and so that is obviously working. ,

Is it possible to use the speaker system on a different DVD player?


I believe I understand what you're asking here. To the best of my knowledge sony puts a special type of connector on the reciever end of the speaker wire which will probably not be compatible with any other reciever brand. Depending on the age of your system, the speakers may not even be compatible with the new Sony models. Wait...there's good news though. Whatever reciever/DVD player you decide on, there will surely be speaker outputs and if you snip of the Sony connector and strip the wire a bit, you shouldn't have a problem. A couple of other things to consider though... A conventional standalone DVD player may not have outputs for five speakers and a sub. That sounds more like a dedicated reciever. I have a crazy suggestion but you might save yourself some money and trouble. -If you are satisfied with the speaker portion of your current system, buy a cheap DVD player, run the video out to the TV, the audio out to the AUX audio in on your current system and use it for sound only. Hope something in here helps.
