Summary: To be very precise and honest..If you are looking for a system that only will produce a little louder voice..then you got it. If you are looking for something like quality, crispy, sharp & awesome sound, Dont even think about it.
Summary: Purchase for son. He loves it. We had a problem within two days with the CD player. Limited support from panasonic (wanted to repair it). Returned it for a new one. This one has worked fine so far. Update: December 2011. I wanted to say that the new one has worked great for over a year now.
Summary: I recently purchased this item and am disappointed. I do like the sleek appearance and ease of use, but the antenna system for AM radio leaves much to be desired. No matter the location or arrangement of the wire antennas, I cannot get any decent clarity or tone.
Summary: I wanted an all in one system with powerfull speakers for the breakfast room but portable enough to take around the house. This seemed to fit the bill. Having several other Panasonic items (TV,stereo, microwave etc.) I expected a well made, well designed product.
Summary: I had the previous model to this, the SC-HC3DB, which went wrong after six months and I was given my money back. I replaced it with the latest model, the SC-HC30DB. Although the units look almost identical the new model's radio is apalling. On both FM and DAB I could not get decent reception.
Excerpt: I bought this Panasonic mini-stereo/MP3 player because I was tired of listening to music through my laptop speakers. Not that my speakers are so bad, they're not (I have a Mac - will review it later), but there's just no comparison between small laptop speakers and a real system.
