The Full Digital Amplifier System handles all signal processing up to the point of speaker output in digital form. This produces clear sound with minimal distortion. A high-efficiency power circuit also provides a stable power supply and low power consumption. And the main unit is conveniently compact.
Based on the phenomenal MASH noise shaping technology used for many years in Panasonic products, the Anti-Jitter Digital Amplifier markedly reduces jitter and distortion that can affect audio clarity, producing pure brilliant sound.
Bamboo is a sustainable material that has great properties for clear audio reproduction when used to replace conventional speaker cone material. By carbonising the bamboo fibres to charchoal, this makes a lighter material that means faster response speed and reduced resonance.
The Anti-Distortion speaker cone structure features an uneven thickness for the rear surface of the speaker cone. This inspired moulded pattern manufacturing process serves to suppress resonance, producing clear sound and minimising unwanted noise.
Bass sounds are conventionally controlled to match the sound volume. The stereo detects the characteristics of music, and emphasises the frequency band that has the most bass. This preserves the characteristics of the original musical instruments and produces powerful, rich bass sounds.
Digital Audio Broadcasts have been with us since 1995 and are currently available in approximately 85% of UK households. However, plans are afoot to upgrade the current DAB service with a new and improved version. No date has been set for the introduction of this new digital radio service, but Panasonic have already begun to include a DAB+ tuner alongside the current DAB tuner in readiness for the switch-over.
Music comes from many sources these days. It is easier now to move and share music to more than one player. And the MP3 compression system means that you can compile hundreds of songs in to your own favourite playlist. MP3 music tracks that are burnt to CD or copied to USB memory stick can be played back directly with this Panasonic player so that you no longer are tied to a pre-recorded music collection.
Panasonic pioneered the iPod Dock for music systems, and now stay one step ahead by introducing a direct digital connection. Most docking systems convert the digital audio playback to analogue which can result in loss of data and introduce unwanted noise. The Digital Dock on Panasonic systems however, maintain the digital signal to the amplifier resulting in a pure and accurate sound reproduction.
Binding post terminals are provided that allow the flexibility of upgrading to your preferred grade of speaker cable. Removable front grilles are also provided, reinforcing the fact that the quality and performance of the PMX5 is a cut above most other systems in it's class.
The Brushed Aluminium design of the PMX5 suggests a high level of build quality that isn't just limited to the outer casing. The look may hark back to the days when Hi-Fi was built to last, but that's because the PMX5 has a proud heritage to live up to. It's not just great to listen to but it's also a pleasure to look at as well.

The build and sound quality are good but it has one major aggravation which leaves me speechless.
When playing CDs it doesn't display the track number. Read more
