Panasonic introduces compact Micro Stereo Systems with Internet radio control and Bluetooth
Panasonic has announced the introduction of four sleek, new compact Micro Stereo Systems that offer amazing connectivity. The flagship SC-HC55DB and SC-HC05 models play Internet radio via ‘vTuner for Panasonic’, and incorporate Bluetooth to play your favourite tunes wirelessly from a iPod touch®, iPhone®11, or iPad™.
Both the SC-HC55DB and SC-HC05 boast wireless music streaming and Internet radio control. Music lovers and talk radio enthusiasts can enjoy the hundreds of stations offered by Internet Radio and use the systems’ convenient features to search for stations and program their favourites by simply installing the ‘vTuner for Panasonic’2 application onto an iPhone or iPod touch.
These two models are also equipped with Bluetooth functionality, and play tunes wirelessly from an iPod touch/iPhone/iPad™, without the need for docking. Bluetooth Re-Master circuitry compensates for audio signals that are lost during Bluetooth wireless transmission, further enhancing the quality of digital music.
The SC-HC55DB features a Hands Free function, which allows a conversation on an iPhone to be conducted using the system’s speakers and built-in microphone while the phone is docked. It also has a motorised, Touch-Free Sensor door equipped with a motion sensor, enabling it to open and close by simply passing a hand over it.
Panasonic’s new SC-HC55DB, SC-HC05, SC-HC35 and SC-HC25 models offer sound performance to meet the needs of discerning music lovers. Digital connection of an iPod or iPhone allows the compact stereo systems to process music signals in their original form, to deliver sound that is faithful to the original for enhanced enjoyment of downloaded music. The SC-HC55DB and SC-HC05 also employ an advanced proprietary Pure Direct Sound System with digital signal processing to reduce distortion and deliver an exceptionally pure, clear sound.
Thanks to their sleek, ultra slim design, the new Micro Systems can be positioned in places where conventional stereo systems will not fit. The SC-HC55DB and SC-HC35 can also be placed on the wall with an included wall mount bracket.
With the exception of the SC-HC05, all of the new systems are equipped with a CD player and AM/FM radio. The SC-HC35, SC-HC55DB and SC-HC05 are designed with a bamboo fibre material in the speaker cones to bring faithful sound vibration to the speaker drive. A dual passive radiator system inside the main unit is positioned on both the left and right speaker boxes to cancel out unwanted vibration and deliver dynamic bass sounds with minimal distortion.
The SC-HC35 is available in red, white or silver, the SC-HC05 is available in white and black, while the SC-HC55DB and SC-HC25 are available in black.
