Panasonic SC-PM20 Mico Component System


I came back with a new review ("again?" you may say) on SC-PM15, 'cause I just get a full-sized system (amp, CD-payer, tuner, speakers). All I have to say is my micro CAN compete (even in bass area!) with my brand new system! I still enjoy music from...

Okay, so I live in a little studio apartment and I don't have enough room or money for a super audio system, so I decided to purchase this (the SC-PM22).

Basically, this system is great. It's small, sounds excellent, and has everything you need. The only thing I don't like is that there is no balance control.

Product Specifications

Panasonic's SC-PM20 is the most expensive of two micro-systems in the company's lineup. In case you're wondering, micro systems are typically more aesthetically understated and slightly smaller than their mini counterparts. The little SC-PM20 could certainly be called stylish, with its windowless cassette door, flush ("Power Glide") control knobs, and blue fluorescent LCD. The speakers even have fake woodgrain cabinets. Among the PM20's most desirable features is the optical digital output, for digital recording devices like MiniDisc or CD-R. The 20 watts/channel won't shake your neighbors' walls. Panasonic devotes separate amps to the two-way speakers' woofers and tweeters, said to help clarify sound and increase bass response. A circuit to help widen the sound stage (the Virtualizer) can be activated by the remote control. This home audio features super woofer speaker system with advanced bi-amp configuration, new bright blue illumination, wooden speaker box with MDF rounded baffles, sound virtualizer (by remote control), digital servo system helps improve playability, separate transformers for analog and digital circuits, TPS (Tape Program Sensor).
