Product Details

Panasonic Silver Slim iPod/CD Micro System, Model SCHC3

The SC-HC3 achieves high quality sound from compact speakers. The Bamboo Cone Speaker produces crisp, clear vocals. And the two passive radiators that are positioned at the front and back of the speaker unit cancel out vibrations inside the speaker to suppress unwanted vibrations and deliver robust bass sounds. The slide-type door allows easy insertion and removal of an iPod™ or CD, even in tight spaces. This special iPod™ dock lets you easily connect an iPod™ directly to the main unit without using any cables. You can then select songs from among your iPod™ favourites with remote operation. You can also set the wake-up timer to work with music from your iPod™.

Chose because of good sound for a small unit. Very disappointed because of the external AM and FM antenna. Reception poor and very directional. Having wires hanging on the walls is very unsightly. Several FM stations missed during auto preset (had to manually input them). Don't understand why the antennas were not built in for such a small unit.

      Comments about Panasonic Silver Slim iPod/CD Micro System:

      I've been using this unit for 6 years, now, and it never fails to please. I've used every type of sound input, from Bluetooth, to CDs to FM, and USB. The CD mechanism operates smoothly and the sound and sound quality enhancements are quite remarkable for a unit this small. I've since purchased two, more expensive Bluetooth units for their portability. I don't want to move this unit around because I've connected it to the wall and to the two included antennae, so portable Bluetooth are used away from my room, but none of these units, though both were more expensive than this Panasonic unit, delivered as good a sound.

            Comments about Panasonic Silver Slim iPod/CD Micro System:

            After looking at a whole bunch of iPod/iPhone players, I stumbled on this small unit. It provides many more functions and much better sound than any of the portable or plug players which I tried.

                Comments about Panasonic Silver Slim iPod/CD Micro System:

                Overall good sound, plenty of bass for a small unit. I use it mostly for IPOD and MP3 CD's. I've attached a DVD player as an aux input and watch movies through the DVD player while this unit does the sound. CDs play well and the IPOD works well and is charged as it sits on the connector. Good quality throughout. Very satisfied with looks and solidity of product. Price is very competitive, too.

                          This is a good stylish piece of electronic. in my opinion the sound with the D.Bass is better than Bose, and the price is awesome
                          You can also listen to Cds and Radio. and can be used as an Alarm.
                          I love Panasonic items my whole house is filled with Panasonic I got addicted to it since I was a teenager.
