Phenomenal, wonderful sound!
on 25 March 2015
Don't often do reviews but this unit is so good, I just wanted to help other people that are trying to decide on a new sound system. I had already spent quite a lot of time visiting the local electrical stores, both smaller independents as well as the larger national outlets but none seemed to have a compact HIFi that sounded good.
Having had other Panasonic equipment in the past and having read the manufacturers blurb, I took the plunge and placed my order. It arrived well protected and was very simple to connect up.
The DAB radio is fantastic! It takes just a few moments to scan all local DAB channels and then you can simply scroll through the list to slect the station you want. It also has the ability to store all your favourite stations and lets you number them in the order you prefer too!
The CD player is very neat with a simple motorised front loading drawer that slides out to accept your CD's. All features can be controlled by the on-unit controls or from the extensive remote hand unit. Information relating to the controls such as Base, Treble, EQ ETC, is all displayed on the scrolling message display.
The really important bit for any sound system of course is, the sound. The quality of the sound that this unit reproduces is PHENOMENAL!!
The speaker system uses a unique construction method which you can read about in the Panasonic info if you want to but really, all you need to to know is the range and quality is beyond belief for a unit of this size.
Tones are rich and silky in the base range whilst being light and crisp in the upper and treble ranges. As for volume? It's a very good job that I'm lucky enough to be in a detached property these days! Half max volume is plenty, but I have taken it to the max just to test it and yep, this would be fine for small pop concerts in your back garden too. In fact it must be good when your teenage daughter is saying, "Can you turn it down now?!"
Summing up, if you are looking for a good quality, well made, well finished and superbly engineered small in physical size, sound system the, look no further. I listened to many different units in my search before finding this one and many of those were quite a lot more expensive too but none came close to the wonderful pure and powerful sound of this Panasonic system.
If you love your music, you'll love this Panasonic Hifi.
