Frankfurt, Germany (23rd February 2015) – Panasonic has today unveiled its latest Micro HiFi systems – the all new SC-PMX100 and SC-PMX70. The new additions to Panasonic’s extensive range of ALL Connected Audio systems have been further improved to meet the needs of today's increasingly popular high-resolution audio formats. The SC-PMX100 also marks the first of Panasonic’s Micro Systems to benefit from multi-room compatibility allowing you to connect to other speakers of the Panasonic ALL Series audio system.

With sleek dimensions and a classic finish that will look great in any living room, both devices are ideal for those who are looking for incredible audio performance.

 

Free your CD and radio audio throughout the entire home

The SC-PMX100 clearly shows Panasonic’s innovation in the audio market with the ability for users to share music from their CD collection or favourite DAB+ radio programmes with friends and family in other rooms from a single device.By connecting to other ALL Series speakers and audio devices such as the SC-ALL5CD, around the home with the Panasonic Music Streaming app, the SC-PMX100 opens up a much wider range of content for multi-room audio.The app is also compatible with a range of online content providers, including the likes of Spotify, Napster, Aupeo!, [IH1], so you’ll have access to millions of songs whenever you need them.

 

With easy to establish Bluetooth connectivity to a mobile device, the SC-PMX100 and SC-PMX70 let you remain in complete control of your audio output at all times. By simply pairing a mobile or tablet to the HiFi, you can listen to all your favourite music, internet radio or podcasts with the press of a button.

 

Enjoy truly authentic audio

Panasonic’s new CD Micro Systems include an array of new features and functions that set them apart from their predecessors. Both the SC-PMX100 and SC-PMX70 include high-resolution audio technologies that let you enjoy truly authentic, better than CD quality sound experiences in your home. Lossless audio files can be played on either system via USB memory, and the SC-PMX100 also allows for high-resolution playback via a computer (USB DAC) or DLNA.

To ensure that audio sounds as authentic and impressive as possible, both systems have been equipped with Panasonic’s newly introduced digital amp solution.The latest version of this technology includes a 3rd generation LincsD-Amp, Virtual Battery Power Supply and Variable Gain Digital Amp (VGDA) which is reaching an unprecedented level ofcorrecting issues such as jitter and power supply noise that usually cause unwanted distortion in digital music playback. The result is sound with greater depth and accuracy that fills every corner of the room.

Panasonic has also developed high-performance 3-way speakers to get the most from the models’ new amp technology and 120W power output. The SC-PMX100’s Super Sonic Tweeter reproduces audio up to 100 kHz, which exceeds the audible range. This ensures that the speaker is capable of covering the ultra-high frequencies of some high-res sound sources, as well as the most delicate of sounds.

The SC-PMX100’s speakers also feature a lightweight and rigid 14cm Bamboo Plant Opal woofer for the clearest sounds over a wide range. This material quickly settles vibration to decrease unwanted reverberations and faithfully achieve the sound that the artist intended. The SC-PMX70’s woofer uses Bamboo charcoal with its precise holes reducing resonance and providing clear and natural sounds.

To get the best sound quality from today’s high-resolution audio formats you also need to use the best quality components and the finest materials are used in both systems.

Ordinarily, when music volume is lowered, the crispness of the sound suffers. VGDA (Variable Gain Digital Amp) technology in the SC-PMX100 enhances quality at low volumes, enabling sharp, crisp sound with minimal background noise. Similarly, a Virtual Battery Power Supply reroutes and rectifies the power circuit found in conventional systems, cutting out unwanted background hum and enabling crystal clear sounds at all volumes.

A classic finish

Both the SC-PMX100 and SC-PMX70 feature a premium aluminium front panel and sound dial for a simple and stylish appearance that’s suited to a wide range of interiors. Aditionally the SC-PMX100 also includes an aluminium top panel.Both systems combine compact size, high grade design and an elegant finish.
