For 2014, Panasonic will introduce a compact, table-top or wall-mountable wireless stereo system, model SC-HC39. It features both Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth connectivity, enabling a user to just wave the smartphone over the One-touch Connection mark on the SC-HC39 to complete the pairing process for easy setup.
The Panasonic SC-HC39 implements LincsD-Amp 2nd generation, which minimizes the jitter that is often generated when playing back digital music files to reproduce sounds that are faithful to the original for more a robust listening experience. And, the Bluetooth Re-master function brings sound even closer to the original by compensating for high-frequency sounds that are lost by compressing the signal during Bluetooth audio signal transmission. This allows the user to enjoy crisp, clear sound even with a wireless connection. A light yet rigid Nanosized Bamboo Cone Speaker and Dual Passive Radiator are used in the SC-HC39 speaker units to deliver dynamic bass and clear, transparent sound.
Featuring a simple, yet elegant design scheme, the Panasonic SC-HC39 is equipped with a lustrous silver panel on the front panel and a stainless steel mesh to cover speakers. The unit’s smooth, flat design does more than just enhance a room’s interior. Because the SC-HC39’s simplicity eliminates parts that are not directly involved with reproducing music, it is packed with more hardware to help enhance sound quality.
“Panasonic is building upon our previous series of Compact Stereo Systems (model SC-HC38) with enhanced sound and connectivity options to bring smarter sound technologies to the consumer for greater ease of use,” said David Fisher, Product Manager, Home Entertainment, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company.
