This small radio gives great sound. I wanted a Bose, but was not willing to pay the price. This gives similar sound and really fills my need for background music in my greatroom and kitchen. Not being a technical person, I did find programing the unit a little challenging until I finally stumbled on the "automatic" option. I use this product every day, have had it for a month and am really happy with this inexpensive addition to my home.

I purchased this unit for my vacation home and it fits the bill perfectly. The sound fills the living room very nicely. There are several equalizer settings and the unit is put together very well - it doesn't feel cheap. I also have the Bose system at my house at home and this unit compares very favorably to it for half the price. The only drawback that I have is that my ipod is a 1st generation and it didn't recognize it. My wife's iphone and my kids itouch worked perfectly. In order to get my ipod to work, I purchased a male to male connector for the auxiliary input in the unit and the headphone jack in the ipod. The ipod still has to sit in the cradle but it won't charge the unit. It ran on battery power but played for 5+ hours with no issues.

I bought one for each kid.

At first, I tried the larger SC-HC30Panasonic SC-HC30 Compact Stereo System but too big for the kid's space but great sound. I looked the newer SC-HC35Panasonic SC-HC35 Compact Stereo System but it does not look as appealing as the older SC-HC30.

This model is great because the iPOD sits in the tray (in front) and does not affect playing of the CD or radio. When you stop playing the CD and turn off the via power button on top, it goes back to charging the iPOD....perfect.

This model is very attractive.

Not wall mountable!
Misnomer:
"It can be mounted on the wall which I am planning on doing for my son."
Thanks John for pointing this out! My wife never want me to try so I never attempted.

They did a great job with this one.

When I looked at the Panasonic SC-HC25 Compact Stereo System, it looked cool and the reviews were quite good. I was a little worried and hesitant about purchasing this item because I have never bought something like this online. But I was wrong its way better than the old little iPod player I had! The sound is good (for my taste and Im picky when it comes to sound!) there are all these options you can choose from like bass, sound quality etc. I even played one of my songs that was very instrustmental and it sounded very nice. The remote works but you have to point it right at it but thats fine. And the CD player is nice also, the sliding door for it is so cool! I think you will be very pleased with this product. It shipped without any damage, I was also worried about that too. I never reviewed a product so I hope this will help you!

When my old Sony CD Player/Clock/Radio finally died I wanted a replacement CD Player compact enough to fit in a specific corner on the kitchen counter, with simple controls and good sound quality. The Panasonic SC-HC25 meets these requirements very well. I use it exclusively to play CD's as I have flourescent lights over the kitchen cabinets and LED can lights over the counters, in a Florida house under a metal roof, so radio reception is nil.

My only negative is one of omission. My old Sony had a CD "Repeat-Repeat/All-Shuffle-Repeat/Shuffle" feature which I used frequently in the "Repeat/Shuffle" mode to keep one CD playing tunes in a random order throughout long recipe preparations. I wish the Panasonic had this repeat play feature. Omission of a repeat play feature is the one reason I gave this Panasonic unit four stars rather than five. To be fair I must note that sound quality from the new Panasonic is much better than the sound quality from the old Sony Clock-Radio.

At first we were skeptical as someone had mentioned on the previous model that the sound control was not the best. We are pleasantly surprised at the overall performance of this unit. The only thing that is missing is "battery backup" but....you can't have everything. We recommend it to anyone that wants to use outdoor music at its finest or just use it around the house with your iPod and or CD. Glad we made the purchase at Amazon, however if we would have waited a couple of weeks more we could have bought it for $15 less at Costco, but such is life.

We purchased this product to replace an old cassette AM/FM radio boom box. It's much thinner. The sound quality is excellent; all three functions (radio, CD, iPod player) work beautifully. I especially like the way the iPod dock slides into the device so it doesn't collect dust when I'm not using it.

It's a great unit. It has great sound quality, especially for the size and price. The AM and FM both work well, as does the CD player. The problem is the iPod dock.

I recently updated the software on my second generation iPod touch, as one does when syncing. Now the unit does not recognize it, and I cannot play my music or podcasts. I contacted tech support, and they said that there was nothing to be done. This despite the fact that the owners manual says to "Update your iPod or iPhone with the latest software." Even doing a full hardware reset does not fix the problem. The seller only accepts returns within the first 30 days (I purchased this two months ago). And Panasonic claims the fault lies with Apple, and will not replace or refund anything either.

So now I have a CD/Radio and now have to shell out for a different until (clearly not Panasonic) docking station to listen to my music. Or buy an older iPod and never update it.

So if you ever plan to update your iPod software, even on much older, "covered" hardware, do NOT purchase this device.
