This High-end Hi-Fi system with advanced audio technology offers superb sound with Bluetooth music streaming convenience. A DAB+ and FM radio is also built-in as is a CD player and an iPod/iPhone dock for 5th generation devices. Panasonic's audio expertise uses digital amplification and the latest speaker technology to deliver rich bass and an all round superb sound.
High Quality Sound from the Legacy of Technics
The audio design and sound refinements of the Panasonic PMX series are carried over by the audio engineers of Technics. High quality amplification, sound processing and speaker design all go together to deliver 120 watts RMS total power output through 3-way speakers with a rich tonal quality.
High Quality Sound
Full Digital Amplifier System [PMX System]
By eliminating the digital to analogue convertor found in conventional audio amplification systems, distortion and unwanted noise is also eliminated. Amplification and signal processing is done digitally and kept in a digital path up to the point of output to the speakers. Low consumption high-efficiency power circuits are also used creating a combined benefit of low power consumption and high quality sound reproduction.
Based on the MASH noise shaping technology used in Panasonic products, LincsD-Amp markedly reduces jitter and distortion that can affect audio clarity, producing pure brilliant sound. The result is high-quality sound with a clarity that brings music to life.
3-way Bass Reflex Speaker System
Dynamic bass and a naturally balanced reproduction of the complete frequency range is delivered by the 3-way speaker system. The audio signal is divided into acoustic ranges extending from bass to treble, allowing each of the speaker units to produce rich, clear sound.
Nano-sized Bamboo Cone Speaker [PMX Series]
Nano-sized bamboo fibres have been developed for use in the construction of the speaker cone to reproduce clear vocals and a more dynamic sound that is free from distortion. Bamboo is a sustainable material that has great properties for clear audio reproduction when used to replace conventional paper cone material. By carbonising the bamboo fibres to charcoal and mixing with polypropylene, 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.
Binding Post Speaker Terminals and Removable Front Grilles
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 PMX series is a cut above most other systems in its class.
Smart Networking Features
Wireless Music Streaming with Bluetooth [PMX]
Enjoy music streamed wirelessly to this Panasonic model via Bluetooth. Any Bluetooth equipped device (PC/smartphone etc.) can be paired allowing you to enjoy great sound quality through the powerful system speakers.
Bluetooth offers a simple wireless way to stream music from one device to another. However, during transmission the music data is compressed, resulting in loss of sound quality. Panasonic's Bluetooth re-mastering takes the treble sounds that are lost during compression and recording and compensates the data, resulting in higher quality playback.
Panasonic Music Streaming App
An easy way to control your music playback is by installing the Panasonic Music Streaming App. It allows you to play music via your home network to your speaker device no matter what type of streaming technology is required. Whether it's DLNA, Apple Airplay or Bluetooth, the app selects the appropriate method without you having to worry. Smartphone or tablet, PC or NAS drive, just launch the App and choose the music. Finally, select your audio product and away you go, great sounds in any room with minimal effort.
Added Value Features
Direct Digital Dock for iPhone 5 & 5th Generation iPod Touch
Many iPod 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, maintains the digital signal to the amplifier resulting in a pure and accurate sound reproduction. Panasonic's 2013 models are equipped with the Apple Lightning connector suitable for the iPhone 5 and latest generation iPod.
DAB and DAB+ Ready
Panasonic include a DAB+ tuner alongside the current DAB tuner in readiness for the switch-over to improve Digital Audio Broadcasts.
MP3 Playback from USB Memory Stick or CD
Music comes from many sources these days. It is easier now to move and share music to more than one player. The MP3 compression system means that you can compile hundreds of songs in 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 model so that you are no longer tied to a pre-recorded music collection.
USB Port for Music Playback or Charging
For added convenience you can play back music or even charge older generation Apple devices or other manufacturer's smartphones or digital music players via the built-in USB port.
MP3 playback and/or charging function is not guaranteed with all USB devices.
Auxiliary Input for External Sources
A twin phono/RCA input is supplied in order that audio playback from external equipment such as a TV or a portable audio player is possible.
Matt Black Brushed Aluminium front Panel
The matt black brushed aluminium facia of the PMX7 suggests a high level of build quality that isn't just limited to the outer casing. The Technics pedigree of the PMX7 ensures it's not just a pleasure to look at but also sounds great too.

Lightning dock not yet used as I don't own any of these devices but nice for the future.
USB port has charged every device(outwith apple products) I've tried so far but doesn't always play the audio.
CD and DAB radio (after a fiddle with the ariel) plays well also.Only minor gripe is that the display is smaller than I would have liked.For instance when scrolling through the DAB station menu it takes a few seconds before you can see the full station name moving across the display.This is annoying especially for BBC and Absolute radio stations
Overall though I am delighted with my purchase and one I would recommend to anyone that wants quality sound and features without breaking the bank.
This unit is much more compact than my previous separate Hi Fi Rotel tuner, amplifier, and
Maranz CD player and yet delivers a superior performance
The bad points are not gross flaws but are still very annoying. The display on the Panasonic is poor; it will show you a track number during selection but then it won't show the CD track number while playing. (I later worked out that you can get the track numbers by pressing 'Display' but it's not obvious from the instructions, which only show an example from MP3 files).
The volume is poor considering the power is supposed to be 120W (are Japanese watts different?). I don't play my music loud by any stretch of the imagination, but I had to turn the dial to vol. 26 before it was acceptable. (Yes, I have checked the speaker connections and I have put the tweeters the right way round).
Mainly good overall but instructions could be simpler and the low volume needs to be addressed.
Another disadvantage of this system (if it works) is the fact that it only takes 3 Ohm speakers.
