Does this home cinema have a 3.5mm input so i could connect my mp3 player up to it?

Aside from the built-in iPod dock?

Yes, it does. It has regular analogue stereo inputs (red/white phono) which you can hook up a non-Apple MP3 player to via a cheap 3.5mm to phono cable (headphone at one end, red & white phono at the other end; £5 on eBay)

In the review it mentions "the FM radio aerial and speaker terminals". What is the best way to use the unit for playing "the radio"?

Hi, I've recently bought the PANASONIC TX-P50U20B and a Sumsung 1680 Blu-Ray player. I have retained my speakers from my old stereo which broke, this stereo supported dolby digital 5.1 input which was processed by my Sony DVD which had built in decoder and 5.1 outputs direct to my hifi which had 2 front floor standers (built in subs), 2 rear surrounds and a front centre. I don't want to throw away these speakers even though they are Aiwa and from 2001/2, the floor standers were really nice. So the question is 1) should I get a dedicated AV amp and make these speakers work with it or just buy a home cinema system like the Panasonic SC-PT480?

2) Bear in mind the surrounds use the single phono type connect, could I cut the end off to split the stripe and black leads?

Hello, I have no knowledge at all about this equipment. I do have a question can I listen a to a regular CD (music) in this equipment? Do a need to have a separate music system or this is enough for music (CD)

Thanks for your help!!!
