I was very impressed with the sound quality on this small hifi, crystal clear sounds and amazing depth. The remote control has a lot of functions. The Ipod docking is great , as well as the USB slot, of course, tradition dictates that a CD player is on it too , it is all very flush and buttons are small and neat .

It performs so well and the DAB radio is a delight if you haven't tried one yet, it shows the name of the channel like RDS but also the presenter and the track and there is so much more info, this little system can do lots and sounds loud and doesn't go all distorted up loud, Panasonic truly knock the spots off rivals every time .

I was looking for something small that wouldn't take over the room so my expectations were modest. Did my research and the Panasonic fitted the bill so went ahead and got a great deal on Amazon. I ordered it on the Monday and arrived 20hrs later "wow". I unpacked and set up the system, took less than 5 minutes, screwed in the DAB antena, positioned it as instructed and turned the Panasonic on. The DAB tuned in to all available stations immediately and the visual display on the unit would not only let you know what station you are on but the host and topic. The sound quality is exceptional, crystal clear with plenty of power infact better than the huge system I owned prior to coming to my senses. The CD player as you would expect after me boosting the DAB was also impressive, lots of different sound effect options and again the sound power that would put many other similar systems to shame. The ipod docking station is fab,works as it should and charges your phone at the same time. All in all a great system that won't break the banks.

Orginally we ordered the Sony one however that has not got the USB port so cancelled that order and ordered this one instead.
I'm no expert but the sound is lovely, very clear.
The ipod docking station is good and although not used the USB port I'm sure it working fine. The CD player is good. I miss not been able to have 5 CD in at once as my old one but since I mostly listen to my music with the iphone that isn't a problem and more lazyness on my part.
The radio is the only problem. We ordered it specifically because it had DAB and fm. The DAB doesn't work in our area (hopefully will eventually) but can't seem to get the fm part working either, probably needs an aerial so will have to playaround when more time.
Overall a great product and we are very happy with it.

I bought this system to replace a Hi Fi system and another radio that had poor radio reception which required frequent retuning,this Panasonic system now allows me to listen to all Fm and DAB stations using the aeriel supplied with the unit. The system was supplied with clear and easy set up instructions, the hand set is well laid out and simple to use. The sound quality is very good with a choice of several variations. The Ipod dock on top of the unit is very accessible, as is the USB and headphone connections.

Arrived in a day with free delivery.
Excellent performance with CD, USB, FM and DAB. Don't have an iPod or similar so can't test the docking port.
Powerful undistorted quality sound even near full volume.
Well suited to my intended use in small halls and small meetings.
Only negative is that an analogue line input is an important omission;
as a line out and line in option would allow the addition of a cheap mixer and microphone to make this a truly adaptable system for very many uses.
Otherwise I would rate it 5*

However a quality produce as to be expected from Panasonic.

Well I can't agree with the previous reviewer because we have one and it is wonderful. Great sound, easy to use and picks up all the DAB channels that we like plus FM. The cd and ipod and usb facilities all work extremelly well to with great sound. I think the previous reviewer must have been sold a faulty or seconds unit.
Highly recommended.

First the good points.
Setting up is a doddle and took me well under an hour even with the home-made adaption I made for the speaker cables (more of which under the bad points).
It's a pleasant-looking and tidy little device (much tinier than I imagined from the photos) with a great sound, for it's size and price.
This is the first system on which I have tried the 'surround' sound and actually found the effect pleasant to listen to music from.
For the 'secondary system' I was looking for it's very good.

The bad points.
The speaker leads are fixed inside the speakers (cannot swap without taking the speakers apart which will likely damage the chipboard from which the backs are made).
The leads are a mere three feet long each; If you're planning to use this system anywhere other than a bathroom/restroom setting, it may be a problem to fully experience the stereo it's capable of producing.
I was fully aware of this and I have a solution in place which is a hang-over from the system it's replacing.
All of the above I had checked and had knowledge of before buying.
Still annoying though.

Then there is the iPod issue.
I say "issue".
The device is advertised as being compatible with iPods and iPhones.
Which it is, provided you are prepared to fork out extra for the requisite iPod/Phone docking connection adapter.
The manufacturer realises how stupid it is not to supply it because they even mention it in the instructions "docking adapter not supplied".
Well, if you have to say that, didn't you think it might be better to include it?
Having this apple device connection is one of the main selling features of the system.
