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 Black Compact Stereo 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.

            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 Black Compact Stereo 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.
