Features

Compact Stereo System

Compact stereo systems for 2011 consist of a wide 4-model line-up. Their design has been further improved by employing the Touch-Free Sensor and a new stainless mesh. The compact body of the iPod/iPhone-exclusive SC-HC05 makes it ideal for personal room use.



Pass your hand over the sensor to open and close the door
Touch-Free Sensor Door

A motion sensor is provided on the top of the SC-HC55. The sliding door can be opened or closed by simply passing your hand over the sensor.



Perfect fit for use in limited spaces
Slim Flat Design

The slim body of the Compact Stereo System, which is only 2-3/4 inch depth*, makes it ideal for setting it onto a shallow shelf or mounting it to a wall**.
* For SC-HC55/HC35, without stand. For SC-HC25, at the thinnest point.
** SC-HC55/35 only.



Easy installation for various locations
Wall-Mountable

The wall-mountable design of the SC-HC55/35 lets you put your audio system anywhere you want, to match your room interior.


Clear sound reproduction
Pure Direct Sound System

The distortion that is commonly generated by the scattered reflection of sounds from the body surface is dramatically reduced by digital signal processing (DSP) to reproduce highly pure sounds.


Pure sound even with a Wi-Fi system
Bluetooth Re-master

Audio signals that are lost during Bluetooth wireless transmission are compensated, so you get high quality music from your iPhone or iPod touch with fingertip operation.


Clear, beautiful vocals
Advanced Bamboo Cone

The bamboo cone speakers make the sound more responsive. Vocals are pure and clear, and dialog is crisp and easy to understand.


Beautiful, transparent treble sounds
2-way Speaker System

A tweeter has been added to reproduce high-frequency sounds with high quality. The 2-way speaker system lets you enjoy sounds that are faithful to the original by reproducing a wide acoustic range, from robust bass to crisp, clear treble.


Enjoy high quality sound from your iPod or iPhone
Digital Music Connection for iPod/iPhone

Digital music connection of an iPod or iPhone also allows the compact stereo system to process music signals in their original digital form. This eliminates sound degradation caused by digital/analog conversion, so users can enjoy their favorite iPod® tunes with pure sound that is highly faithful to the original.


More powerful bass than its size suggests
Dual Passive Radiator

Thin passive radiators positioned at the front and back of the speaker cancel out vibrations inside the speaker, thus suppressing unwanted vibrations and delivering robust bass sound.



Reduced power consumption during standby
Low Power Consumption

Panasonic audio products are designed to consume as little as possible in order to save natural resources.

Reviews

SC-HC55 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18224.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks nice...Saves space I should have read the reviews before I purchased the HC55. Now I find out I have to pay for an app for the internet radio, but the main problem is this is for my ipod and I can't use it without finding and purchasing a "dock adaptor". Another purchase??? Why wasn't this mentioned at least on the box cover. Is this something everyone should already know? I guess this dock adaptor is an ipod accessory for my Panasonic product, so I can listen to my ipod? I might recommend when I purchase the adaptor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HC-55 I just bought this unit and am very happy. The bluetooth function works very well and I am able to listen to pandora radio without buying the Internet radio app. So far I have absolutely NO negative thoughts about this product. It does what I expected

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great except for one problem... I purchased this, and I think it's a great system. Great sound, and the ability to open the iPod and CD sections with a hand wave is a cool feature. The design is slick, and I like the thin size of it. I've played around with the Internet radio too. Some people will balk at having to buy the vTuner app, but if you're not going to use Internet radio, skip buying it. Of course, if you're not using Internet radio, you may want to look into the SC-HC35, which costs less, and has the same basic function as this unit. The only real issue I have with this unit is that it seems to be designed for the iPod Touch or the iPhone, as opposed to the iPod Classic. When skipping to the next track, there are times when the system will fast forward about 5 seconds, instead of moving to the next track. This happens about every 5 or 6 tracks. Aside from that small gripe, this really is a nice system.
