I had the previous model to this, the SC-HC3DB, which went wrong after six months and I was given my money back. I replaced it with the latest model, the SC-HC30DB.
Although the units look almost identical the new model's radio is apalling. On both FM and DAB I could not get decent reception.
Initially I thought it was a fault as the old model was fine in exactly the same location with the same aerial so sent it back to Amazon for a replacement. Unfortunately the replacement was exactly the same, so it too has gone back.
So, in conclusion if you have a strong radio signal then you'll probably love this unit. Otherwise leave well alone.
Assuming you have a good signal or don't care about the radio then I don't reckon you will find (IMO) a more aesthetically pleasing, good sounding iPOD dock which will sit neatly on a window cill or shelf.
Even the remote is really well laid out and very intuitive. I personally think it sounds as good as the Bose units at well over twice the price, and they don't look as nice or have a radio/CD.
I have now bought the old model second hand on Ebay and am glad to say it works fine.
Panasonic, I hope you are reading this; I'm not the only person who thinks the radio on this unit is poor.
Oh and finally, Amazon's customer service deserves a mention they are just brilliant.
