Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great Airplay Device

 

I have to give this 4 stars because my first unit was DOA and Panasonic support sucks. Once you get a unit its great! Anyone can walk into my office and start sending music to the system which they love. I still can't get over the fact that I can walk...

Seamlessly works with Airplay out of the box ; Multiple setup options for different types of networks ; Solid sound in a small, relatively low cost, package ; AM/FM/CD/Aux/Apple Dock/Airplay means you can listen to anything ; Holds a great wifi signal

First unit DOA ; Panasonic support is UTTERLY CLUELESS. You think they'd get the message that its the 21st century and your support group should be able to do more then give a stock response that they read from the instructions. TRULY TERRIBLE SUPPORT
