Summary: My Grandma needed a new stereo but it had to be very compact and easy to use. My grandma is not very technology- compatible and for daily use, she'd basically be on her own to figure it out. After reading the positive reviews and doing some comparison-shopping, her grand-kids all chipped in and bought it for Mother's day 2011. It's now August and every time I get a letter from her or call her on the phone, she gushes about how much she loves it.
Summary: I needed a new stereo for working out in the garage and picked up this unit. I wanted a ipod dock as well as usual receiver and cd player. When it arrived, my wife and I decided it was too nice for the garage and it is now in our bedroom. It's nice and compact but produces a great sound from all sources. I might have to pick up another one for the garage. Note: The manual states that a ipod dock is sold separately. It isn't ,it's included with the base unit.
Summary: Excellent sound from such a compact unit. I bought this item on recommendation of others. I am happy with my purchase. My wife has a Bose in her room and I think this unit sounds about as good. For the price you can't go wrong.
Summary: I purchased this product for my Brother-In-Law who is handicapped and wanted a radio that had a remote so he could change the channels from his bed,This is a good quality system. I was surprised at the good sound from such a small system.My Brother-In-Law loves it.
Summary: I bought this for the office. The sound is outstanding, the FM reception is excellent, (even deep inside a large office building). I mainly use the ipod dock and the CD player, and I couldn't be happier with the ease of operation. The unit is attractive and doesn't use a lot of desk space. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a big sound in a small footprint.
Summary: Ipod/iphone dock, charges iphone, cd and mp3 player, AND am/fm radio that will pick up my favorite hard to tune station 103.7 in Houston. Great addition to my kitchen as it takes up only a bit of counter in my TINY 1950's kitchen. Bass is heavy but all you have to do is adjust it with the remote. Problem solved.
Summary: Just love this unit; it is so compact, clean, and simple to set up and use. The design is actually quite elegant, and the sound is surprisingly clean and strong for something so small. As other reviewers have noted, it is not practical to use the remote to select tracks to play on the ipod, however I don't blame the manufacturers for that; I have enough trouble managing my ipod tracks on my own. :^) I may get a second one for the bedroom!
Summary: I searched a long time for a stereo system for my bedroom. I am disabled, and spend a lot of time in that room. The Panasonic SC-HC20 fills the room with great sound that I can adjust to my particular mood or music. It looks as great as it sounds, and everyone who hears it, threatens to take it home with them. If you want a durable workhorse with great sound and looks - you found it here!
