European Micro System 2009-2010 -> Panasonic SC-HC3

 

Derived from the long audio tradition of Panasonic's one-time sister brand, Technics, this micro audio system enhances any table or bookshelf like a piece of audio jewellery. Its slim and compact vertical design features a sliding door which opens to...

Panasonic SC-HC3 micro hi-fi system

 

This slim hi-fi system from Panasonic packs a surprisingly powerful aural punch

Well-rounded sound, iPod dock, looks good

Uneven sound at maximum volume level, display is too small

Panasonic’s SC-HC3 micro hi-fi is a great product. It’s attractive and has an integrated iPod dock. It has especially good sound quality considering its slim design.

Panasonic SC-HC3 Compact Stereo System

 

Panasonic's attractive SC-HC3 combines CD and iPod playback with excellent audio quality, although iPhone owners should shop elsewhere.

Includes iPod, CD, radio and auxiliary inputs ; Sliding case design

No DAB+ compatibility, just FM ; Not shielded for iPhones

There's no doubting that the SC-HC3 is a quality unit where it really counts — audio quality. It's not an inexpensive unit, however, and really only justifies itself if you do split your listening between iPod and CD a lot.

Panasonic SC-HC37DBEBS

 

easy to use. Slim, elegant design . Ours sits neatly on the wall. It has been necessary to fit a DAB aerial to our chimney because of poor reception in our area. With the aerial this model gives us a very good sound and picks up all radio channels

Good looking unit, excellent sound quality.

I pod connectivity problems. I have an i pod 4 and the connections are not compatible. It does dock with an i phone 4 however.

Panasonic SC-HC37DBEBS

 

Slim, compact, pleased with doors.

Aerial for radio is like 2 strings you have to secure upwards from the machine, we have a high corner shelving unit that the machine sits on so I can hide them apart from the ends that poke out the top like 2 spiders legs. This is not shown on any pics...

Panasonic SC-HC37DBEBS

 

Quick and easy to install. For a small, compact unit the sound quality is equal to that of a large, expensive, 'flashy-type' model.

I really can't think of any.

Product Specifications

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 favorites with remote operation. You can also set the wake-up timer to work with music from your iPod. With only about the same depth as a paperback book, the SC-HC3 can be placed on a desktop, bedside stand, or other small space.
