Panasonic SC-HC40DB review


A mere 10cm deep and wall-mountable - if you so desire - the Panasonic SC-HC40DB is a decent all-rounder. In truth the build quality of the SC-HC40DB is not standout stuff, though it does fit together a decent combination of built-in tech, including...

Harsh at loud volumes

Panasonic has come up with a do-it-all hi-fi whose cutting-edge features are more desirable than its slim design; its combination of a motorised door-covered iPhone dock and CD player with DAB, USB playback and Bluetooth streaming from a phone makes...

I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. It is currently in use in a bedroom, perhaps later in an office. I think it is the perfect product for these uses. I researched similar products ex-ten-sive-ly, even bought a Sony shelf system & set them up...

Excellent Value


It's in use in the living room because of the fine sound quality and attractive design (it occupies very little space). Very satisfied and Panasonic is reliable.

Product Specifications

The SC-HC40 boasts advanced compatibility with iPod/iPhone Bluetooth functions. With the hands free function, a conversation on the iPhone can be conducted while docked to the SC-HC40. The listening possibility is further expanded by the HC40's ability to receive audio transmission and play wirelessly from iPod/iPhone or compatible mobile phones in one's hand. The SC-HC40 features Panasonic's proprietary advanced bamboo cone speakers and a dual passive radiator. The advanced bamboo cone speakers feature a rigid, lightweight bamboo cone material, resulting in exceptionally responsive sound. Vocals are pure and clear, and the dialog crisp and easy to understand. A dual passive radiator design cancels unwanted vibration, helping deliver a pure bass sound with minimal noise. The diaphragm of the passive radiator is weighted to achieve linear vibration, making it possible for these slim speaker units to produce a robust, full-bodied bass. Across the entire sonic range from pure, clear trebles to rich, dynamic bass, the SC-HC40 delivers an audio performance that is almost unimaginable from systems of their size. Thanks to its sleek, slim design, the SC-HC40 can be set up in places where conventional stereo systems will not fit. The SC-HC40 can also be placed on the wall with its wall-mountable design, which offers users greater flexibility in terms of room design.
