Panasonic announces new 2016 Home Audio range

Music for everyone, everywhere

Panasonic has unveiled its 2016 Home Audio range consisting of new Wireless speakers, Soundbars, Micro systems and Mini systems.
As digital music streaming booms – with downloads and streaming now accounting for 62 per cent of Australian recorded music – the new range offers a number of options for music lovers, wherever they are and whatever their tastes.

ALL Connected Audio: ALL Music. ALL Sources. ALL Rooms.

Panasonic’s ALL Connected Audio products have been developed to provide ease of use and exceptional sound quality throughout the home, enabling you to re-stream to other connected speakers from a range of audio sources, including CD, mobile devices, online music services, DAB+ radio, and Bluetooth Auxiliary.
Panasonic has unveiled two new additions to its range of ALL Connected home Audio products – the SC-ALL05 and the SC-ALL7CD. The ALL Connected systems combine outstanding performance, style and versatility. Both the new products offer WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, with the SC-ALL7CD also incorporating USB, CD and DAB/FM radio functionality.

The ALL Connected Audio multi-room functionality is powered by Qualcomm’s smart media platform, ALL Connected Audio. Using an existing WiFi network, you can quickly and easily set up a series of connected speakers throughout the home, controlled by an intuitive mobile app. The Panasonic Music Streaming App lets you stream music from a wide range of music platforms, including the likes of Spotify and Qualcomm ALL Connected Audio Radio powered by TuneIn. Furthermore, you can stream via WiFi to any ALL Connected  Audio device, and then with Panasonic’s innovative

Bluetooth Re-streaming feature you can then share this music to other compatible speakers around the home.

The soundtrack to your day

The SC-ALL05 has a waterproof design (IPX7/IPX5) and a 8.5 hour built-in battery, so you can enjoy amazing quality connected audio in the bathroom or kitchen without worrying about splash damage. The speaker’s 20W power output packs more than enough punch to fill your room with your favourite songs, while the combination of two full range speakers and two passive radiators ensure clear and consistent sound quality.

Access all your music

The SC-ALL7CD gives your network of ALL Connected Audio speakers access to a wide range of audio sources. In addition to re-streaming via the Panasonic Music Streaming app, you can also playback via CD, USB, radio or use the SC-ALL7CD’s 4GB internal memory to shuffle play tracks from up to 25 of your favourite albums.

With the ability to process FLAC (up to 192kHz/24bit) or wav (up to 192kHz/24bit) files via USB and via Multiroom, the SC-ALL7CD is a true high resolution system. Two 50kHz Dome Tweeters combine with two Twisted Acoustic Port speakers to generate audio that accurately recreates what was recorded in the studio. At the same time, the High Rigidity Chassis removes unwanted vibrations and distortion, for breathtakingly crisp and clear sound.
The speaker’s slim and flat shape has been designed specifically for convenient placement, making the SC-ALL7CD the perfect accompaniment to any living room shelf, sideboard or bookcase.

Soundbars: Bringing the cinema to your home

Panasonic’s soundbars have been developed to bring an excellent audio experience to your living room while looking subtle and stylish beneath the television. The sleek design of the new range means they can be wall mounted beneath the TV or placed in front without blocking the view.
The new SC-HTB685 and SC-HTB18 soundbars are accompanied by a down-firing subwoofer, wireless in the SC-HTB685. By positioning its driver towards the floor, the additional speaker can produce a much more powerful, rounded bass sound than you would expect from such a compact design.

Connecting the soundbar with the wireless subwoofer means movies, TV shows and music become far more impactful. Clear Dialogue mode in the SC-HTB685 ensures that the all-important vocals are not drowned out while watching a movie. The SC-HTB685 incorporates an IR blaster which relays the signal from the remote control in case the TV’s sensor is blocked.

Connecting to a mobile device via Bluetooth, the soundbars enable users to take complete control of audio output at all times. By pairing a mobile or tablet, users can listen to their favourite music, internet radio or podcasts with the press of a button. The SC-HTB685 also offers convenient one-touch NFC for Android devices.

Micro Systems: Listen to and store your favourite CDs

The new SC-RS52 is available in silver and offers a slim, low-profile design. It provides easy operation and networking capability, incorporating Bluetooth streaming, DAB radio and intuitive controls.

In addition to streaming from a mobile device via Bluetooth, the SC-RS52 also provides a modern solution for managing your CD collection. A standard CD tray is accompanied by 4GB of internal memory and a recording function for storing music digitally. Five CDs can be catalogued in high quality WAV format (25 CDs in MP3 quality) and recalled at the touch of a button. There is also the option to overwrite at any time.

The SC-RS52 turns your old CD collection into a jukebox experience worthy of any modern living room – once stored, albums can be enjoyed individually or you can randomly shuffle through every single song stored on the system.

The SC-RS52 has been developed to generate high quality sound at lower volumes. Two 6.5cm full-range Nano Bamboo speakers incorporate a large magnet and Twisted Acoustic ports for bass levels that far outweigh the SC-RS52’s sleek design. Meanwhile, the 40W power output combines with a 3rd generation Lincs D-Amp and a high rigidity chassis for incredibly low levels of distortion.

The new SC-PM600 offers sleek dimensions and a classic finish, ideal for those who are looking for style and great audio in small spaces such as the bedroom, study or kitchen. Users can listen to music from their CD collection and use Bluetooth connectivity to pair a mobile or tablet to the system and listen to all their favourite music, internet radio or podcasts.

The SC-PM600 features a two-way speaker system which offers impressive bass and clear, high-frequency sound. A motorised CD tray makes it easy to change discs and users can enjoy listening to radio using the AM/FM tuner. For added convenience, the SC-PM600 also offers USB playback.
Contemporary flat design The black SC-HC295 has a contemporary flat design that blends in beautifully with virtually all room interiors. The wall mounting option enables a stylish layout even in rooms with space limitations.

Panasonic’s SC-HC295 Micro System boasts advanced audio technology for clear, dynamic sound and wireless music streaming.
The SC-HC295 also features technology that cancels unwanted vibrations, helping deliver a pure bass sound with minimal noise. The diaphragm of the passive radiator is weighted to achieve linear vibrations, enabling robust, full-bodied bass from a slim and compact design.

The new Micro System offers Bluetooth connectivity via Panasonic’s Music Streaming App, enabling users to seamlessly stream their music from any Bluetooth-enabled device such as smartphones and tablets or laptops, with a Bluetooth Re-Master function ensuring high-quality audio. NFC One-Touch Connection simplifies Bluetooth pairing with NFC-compatible smartphones and tablets.

Mini Systems: Bring the DJ to your home

Three new mini systems from Panasonic – the SC-MAX9000, the SC-AKX660 and the SC-AKX220, offer powerful sound quality and lighting that changes in time with the beat to get the party started.

The SC-MAX9000 and the SC-AKX660 allow you to easily transfer songs from your smart Android device via Bluetooth to the 4GB internal memory.
The SC-MAX9000 produces outstanding resonance with ultra-powerful Airquake Bass that lets you not only hear the sound but really feel it. Sound is driven by a 38-cm Ultra Super Woofer, Triple Amplifiers and an impressive 4000W output power.

Sample sounds are pre-installed for mixing and scratching in between songs, and, users can also record sounds to save them as samples for further mixing.
