Summary: Everything works as advertised and sound quality is very good at this price point. Only down side is that DAB reception is non-existent despite my postcode being in a supposed medium reception area. Even a separate internal aerial (Philex 27741) failed to improve DAB reception so I guess I will have to consider an external aerial.
Summary: I looked around various sites and shops to replace my DAB Hi-Fi system that developed problems. Eventually ordered this Panasonic Micro System. In a word 'Excellent'. The DAB radio tuned in within 30 seconds. The CD is really good sound quality. No regrets and a very competitive price. Highly Recommended!
Summary: Intended more to be used as a souped up portable radio I was looking for OK but got amazing. Good sound, low distortion, good DAB reception providing you stretch and tape the aerial as suggested (some other reviews suggested DAB was a bit problematic) FM a bit dodgy as there is no separate FM aerial, probably could sort that out but it's fine on mono. No AM but who cares. Easy to set up, easy on the ear, easy on the eye if slightly techno.
Summary: With DAB and FM radio, a proper tray CD (mp3 compatible) player and the option to plug in a pen drive containing mp3 files this is a great all-rounder. It even has a port on top for those who buy i-toys (but the older connector). The sound output uses pre-defined equaliser settings, it also has a bass boost and wide-angle sound options (a surround sound type effect).
Summary: On the positive side, this unit sounds very good and the iPhone / iPod doc works well. It also fits very snugly on a shelf as it's quite small. However a principal reason for buying this unit was the DAB radio which just doesn't work at all. I tried placing our Pure DAB radio next to it to make sure it wasn't a coverage / location issue but the Pure radio worked fine. I even tried attaching the aerial from the Pure radio to this stereo to see if that helped - it didn't.
Summary: I was looking for something small that wouldn't take over the room so my expectations were modest. Did my research and the Panasonic fitted the bill so went ahead and got a great deal on Amazon. I ordered it on the Monday and arrived 20hrs later "wow". I unpacked and set up the system, took less than 5 minutes, screwed in the DAB antena, positioned it as instructed and turned the Panasonic on.
