Airplay Overview

Panasonic AirPlay Compact Stereo System with iPod Dock - SCHC57

Key Features:

  • Wireless Audio with Airplay
  • Slim and Stylish Design with Auto Sliding Dock
  • Clear and Dynamic Sound

Features:

  • Wireless Audio with AirPlay® Lets you enjoy music anywhere in your home.
    Wirelessly stream music from the iTunes library on your iPad®/iPhone®/iPod touch® or PC/Mac to the HC57 or AP01 and enjoy it anywhere in your home. The music is streamed as lossless data, so there is no loss of sound quality from compression. And since there is no disc drive nearby, mechanical operating noise won’t interfere with your enjoyment.

  • Remote Control App for iPhone Smart operation with intuitive GUI
    By installing a Remote Control App onto your iPhone or iPod touch, you can easily operate your HC57/AP01 by simply tapping and flicking on your iPhone or iPod touch. In addition to the remote control functions, you can also use screen operations to open the main unit’s door, and to adjust the equalizer and other settings.

  • Pure Direct Sound System Clear sound reproduction
    The distortion that is commonly generated by the scattered reflection of sound from surrounding surfaces is dramatically reduced by noise canceling with digital signal processing to reproduce highly pure sound.

  • Direct-Vocal Surround Like being in a concert hall
    This feature positions the musical instruments in a surround configuration and accentuates the vocals in the center so you feel enveloped by the vocals. Enjoy the same great ambience as if you were listening to a live performance in an actual concert hall.

  • Slim Flat Design A perfect fit where space is limited
    The slim body of the compact stereo system makes it ideal for setting it onto a shallow shelf or mounting* it to a wall.

  • Low Power Consumption
    Reduced power consumption Panasonic audio products are designed to consume as little as power possible to conserve natural resources.

            Comments about Panasonic AirPlay Compact Stereo System with iPod Dock:

            This piece lasted only 9 months. It would just die if you had the volume greater than 39 of 50. Then it just stopped turning on.

                Comments about Panasonic AirPlay Compact Stereo System with iPod Dock:

                Honestly, the preset settings had me disappointed at the sound quality at first, but once I got the setting right I was really happy with the speakers. It's really easy to use, and I like having the timer so that I can play relaxing music to help me fall asleep.
