Panasonic SC-PMX7DBEBS 120W Micro System with Inte&hellip by Panasonic
5.0 out of 5 stars Superb quality and value, 31 July 2014
An outstanding product. I finally took the plunge after doing a good bit of searching. The Denon M39 was winning, except, on price. The Panasonic was a latecomer to my search and wins hands down on price and quality.
I am not an audiophile. I don't have the hearing of a cat, and need to spend £2k on a Bose or similar.
If you want great quality, lots of features for a good price (it was £232 when I bought it) this is the one. It's has Bluetooth connectivity, an aux option (we have the pc patched through it for video and specify). It picked up the dab straight away but I did buy an aerial for £10...
A top hifi. Does what it says on the box.

There is however, a couple of glaring errors/omissions (whatever). Break On Through is the "..She gets..!" version, which seems strange, maybe its to placate a USA that is still offended by the word 'high' nearly 50 years later, and the version of LA Woman is again the… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Step Into The New, 5 May 2014
I found myself listening to this album properly for the first time only recently. I fell for the vitriol when it came out. Not so, now.

It feels, and seems to be in a similar vein to Up (R.E.M.). Blur and R.E.M. are/were very much the sum of their parts. Take one away, and the feel remains, but the sound doesn't.

Graham Coxon leaving Blur, brings a new and not unwelcome sound to Blur. Whilst 13 is all guitar based, Think Tank is all beats, echoes and atmosphere.

Out Of Time must be one of their best songs, period. The lyrics for the whole… Read more
