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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Electronic I've ever wasted money on 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and Versatile 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.
