AirPlay® & Smart Operation


Wireless Audio with AirPlay®

Lets you enjoy music anywhere in your home.

Wirelessly stream music from the iTunes library on your iPad/iPhone/iPod touchor 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.

• Remote Control App for HC57/AP01 must be downloaded from the App Store (iTunes Store).
• For this function, a wireless LAN environment is required.
• System Requirements: iPod touch 3rd generation or later, iPhone 3GS or later, iOS version 4.2 or later

High Quality Sound


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.

Nanosized Bamboo Cone Speaker

Clearer and more beautiful vocals

Finer bamboo fibers than were used in the 2011 models enable this new cone speaker to reproduce clear, fresh natural tones with minimal distortion.

Smart Design. Eco-Friendly


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.

*The SC-HC27 and SC-AP01 cannot be wall mounted.

Low Power Consumption

Reduced power consumption

Panasonic audio products are designed to consume as little as power possible to conserve natural resources.

Reviews

SC-AP01 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18028.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a waste What a waste of money. I bought this thing in Switzerland for Xmas and since I have only had problems and connections issues with AirPlay. Setting up the connection is quite easy, but it simply won't work for longer period of times. I have a proper WLAN set up, good signal strength, but every 20 or so minutes both my iPads and iPhones just quit playing, connection is lost, have to redo everything. What a unnerving piece of garbage this is. Everything works flawlessly in my network, except this flat junk. So disappointed. Sound Quality is below average too.
