Panasonic SC-PMX5


This micro hi-fi is a class act.

Warm and sparklingly detailed sound, Solid build quality, attractive design, Built-in iPod dock

Limited format support via USB, No DLNA music streaming, D.Bass and Surround taint the sound

Panasonic SC-PMX5 review


User-friendly, but hamstrung by its lacklustre sound

Integrated iPod dock ; easy-to-use remote ; good build and looks ; decently detailed vocals

Sharp treble ; unwieldy at higher volume levels ; timing could be better

User-friendly and good-looking, but hobbled by sharp treble and lacklustre sound

Very pleased my purchase eventually, I have been looking for a good system with dab radio for some time and at this one especially. I bought it now as the price seems to be increasing quite a lot since I first started to consider buying.

You will need to buy an aerial for the dab radio as the bit of wire supplied is useless. Its a shame the black model is so much more expensive than the silver ?

Design and sound quality for the price. The fact it is Panasonic.

Would be nice if the Clock stayed lit when the unit is off.

Compact system easy to set up, but the instructions could give a bit more information. Dab radio reception good in our area. A good product if you do not require all the latest features and only want to listen to the radio or your own CD collection.

Scrolling information display for radio service can be a bit annoying as it cannot be turned off. However it can be dimmed. Speaker wires could be a bit longer to enable the speakers to be further apart.

The speakers really do need some time to "run in" to produce their optimum sound

excellent speakers in design and performance. This compliments a well amplified signal to give a very accreditable performance despite its size

very little
