Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The distortion that is commonly generated by the scattered reflection of sounds from the body surface is dramatically reduced by digital signal processing (DSP) to reproduce highly pure sounds.

The slim body of the Compact Stereo System, which is only 69 mm depth*, makes it ideal for setting it onto a shallow shelf. *59 mm depth without stand.

Bluetooth wireless technology in the SC-HC05 makes it more convenient to enjoy a wireless connection with an iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or compatible mobile phone. You can hold the player in your hand and play music files without docking. Audio signals that are lost during Bluetooth wireless transmission are compensated, so you get high quality music from your iPhone or iPod touch with fingertip operation.

The bamboo cone speakers make the sound more responsive. Vocals are pure and clear, and dialogue is crisp and easy to understand.

A tweeter has been added to reproduce high-frequency sounds with high quality. The 2-way speaker system lets you enjoy sounds that are faithful to the original by reproducing a wide acoustic range, from robust bass to crisp, clear treble.

Thoroughly recommended.Excellent sound from something so slim. Easily paired with my iphone. Like the choice to either have it play wireless or docked and charging. The Panasonic radio app is also very good.

I bought these speakers from a High street retailer, but thought I would share my thoughts on Amazon.

I have an ipod touch 4th gen and have struggled to find speakers that will connect with it. Whether this is a fault with the ipod touch 4, or just MY ipod touch I don't know, but finding speakers that fit has proved to be a complete pain the neck!!

Having done the rounds of the shops and testing virtually every dock known to man, I was happy that the panasonic would connect with my ipod and bought it home. I bought it as a replacement when my older phillips speakers packed in and I'm very impressed with the sound quality, with rich, deep sounding Bass and relatively powerful 40W total output. Not enough for a huge room, but perfect for the average size kitchen, bedroom or lounge.

The extra bluetooth functionality is a good idea. In addition to my ipod I own the Samsung Galaxy S2 android phone with bluetooth. It connected with it easily, and the sound is surprisingly good, although not quite as clear as a directly connected ipod.

The included remote control feels a tad cheap and tacky. I've found that it can be temperamental and doesn't always control the ipod menu, but can be relied upon to turn the system on, off and adjust the volume.

The user manual recomends the installation of the panasonic v.tuner internet radio app which, it says is designed to work exclusively with the speakers and designed specifically with the remote control in mind. I dutifully searched the app store, only to find that you had to pay for it. I think it was only £1.49, but I was disapointed. After paying nearly £100 for the speakers I thought they would have thrown the app in for free. (My old phillips speakers had a free radio, alarm clock and graphic EQ app).

All in all I would recomend the speakers to all, but was disapointed in having to pay for the recomended internet radio app.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be deceived by the modest appearance.... 23 Dec 2011
...it's a beast. Panasonic have a gem here & they're underselling it.

This is a really well built unit, solid with a really powerful sound. I was surprised as it looks a lot like some of Panasonic's other units with DAB radio & CD player built in - which have more modest output. By dispensing with the radio & CD player they've squeezed in a couple of really good speakers.

If your iPod/iPhone's got Bluetooth it's really easy to pair the units & save having to physically connection. So you can sit on one side of the room using the iPod like a remote control. Works fine with my iPod Touch.

My daughter uses this with her iPod Nano (5th gen) by opening the little cover in the centre of the unit & making a physical connection. When docked the iPod charges. She's also got her computer plugged in using a line input - so it doubles as a really good pair of PC speakers. It's possible to play some PC content w/o a physical connection using Bluetooth - but we don't bother as we've got the physical connection anyway.

The only quibble is there's no written display to see what input you've selected - other than a sequence of coloured lights. After a while you remember whether they mean iPod, PC or whatever.

Highly recommended audio unit for a smaller room, I'm thinking of an excuse to buy another one for the kitchen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic SC-HC05EB-W 40W iPod Dock - White 10 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
This is an Ideal bedroom Ipod Dock it is white which is unusual and a better colour for the bedroom.
It has blue tooth which works well and also charges the Iphone and Ipod.

The sound quality is very good for a bedroom - not a main hi fi though.
