great, stylish mini system,
This review is from: Panasonic SC-HC30DBEBS DAB Micro System with iPod Dock (Electronics)
[a small caveat first: i haven't used the DAB radio on this product yet, so I can't comment on that - a few other reviews of this and similar products have been disappointed with DAB, but from reading those reviews it appears that a lot of the negative points come from poor DAB reception in their area.]
I bought this system a few weeks ago, after extensive searching on the web and in shops for suitable mini systems. I wanted a reasonably discrete system for my living room, one which I could plug my iPod into and play CDs from (radio wasn't a big deciding factor in my case). This Panasonic system (although admittedly not the cheapest) was by far the most appealing, especially with regard to hiding away the iPod dock - many of the other systems I looked at basically just had a iPod dock stuck on the top somewhere, which I didn't think looked very good.
The build quality is excellent - the sliding door which moves to reveal the iPod dock or CD tray is a great touch. Sound quality is very good, at least for a medium sized room like mine (to be honest, if you're looking for lots of power, you wouldn't go for a mini system in the first place!). You can navigate your iPod menus using the systems remote, and your iPod is charged when docked as well.
I've been very happy with this product so far. Amazon was about the cheapest place to get it, taking free delivery into account. It looks great, sounds great, and I'd highly recommend it.
