Expert Review


The Panasonic SC-HC55DB is a slim and slick mini hi-fi system. It's not suitable for being played at maximum volume, where it suffers some bass distortion and harsh-sounding treble, but at low and moderate volumes it sounds good. It's well suited to a...

Panasonic SC-HC55DB


Form and function, wireless Bluetooth, decent sound, clever controls

Lacks a little oomph and refinement, especially with deep bass notes

You can’t argue with the spec sheet and we’re suitably impressed with the sound

Solid stereo


This is a great mini-stereo system. If you want something to play music with and produce a lot of very powerful sound, I recommend this one. That being said, I prefer something with a little more body to the sound and I wasn\'t sure what to expect from...

Perfect solution!


This was a great replacement for an antiquated stereo system (college in the 70\'s) used in a downstairs billiard room. Nice connectivity, good sound from a small unit. Glad I bought it!

Great except for one problem...


I purchased this, and I think it\'s a great system. Great sound, and the ability to open the iPod and CD sections with a hand wave is a cool feature. The design is slick, and I like the thin size of it. I\'ve played around with the Internet radio too....
