Panasonic’s New High-End Wireless HiFi Systems Give Listeners Breathtaking Sound Quality

Press Release   •   Feb 11, 2013 06:00 GMT

Panasonic today reveals its new additions to the PMX series, the SC-PMX9 and SC-PMX7, which offer excellent audio performance due to their 3-way speakers, advanced super tweeter and Full Digital Amplifier System.  The PMX9 is compatible with a number of wireless streaming technologies that enable users to conveniently connect their devices by Bluetooth, AirPlay or DLNA while users of the PMX7 can connect with Bluetooth.

Whether a listener chooses to source their music from a CD, iPhone 5/iPod touch (5th generation) or USB, the SC-PMX9 and SC-PMX7 reproduce music with all the clarity and rich tonal expression that makes Hi-Fi audio so enjoyable.  The Full Digital Amplifier System processes music data directly in digital form, without analogue conversion, right up to the point where it is sent to the speakers dramatically reduces noise in the audio signal.

To maximise the advantages of the Full Digital Amplifier System, a wide variety of advanced audio reproduction technologies have been incorporated in the SC-PMX9 and SC-PMX7.  The LincsD-Amp minimises the jitter that can occur during digital signal processing, to produce sound that is more faithful to the source. The Digital Music Connection also enables music to be played directly from an iPhone 5/iPod touch (5th generation) to the SC-PMX9 and SC-PMX7 without digital to analogue conversion which prevents acoustic degradation during data transmission.  The PMX9 is also able to playback FLAC files.

Elegant Design

The SC-PMX9 and SC-PMX7, however, offer much than just high-spec performance, as seen in their exquisite design.  Aluminium is used in the front panel of the main unit, with a hairline finish that adds to the solid presence and luxurious look of the front panel and volume knob. The speakers have a beautiful piano-like finish that looks refined in any setting (SC-PMX9).

This stylish, high-grade appearance is a wonderful match for virtually any living room or bedroom. It turns any room into a sophisticated space for musical enjoyment.

Rich and clear sound

Furthermore, extra care has also been taken in the 3-Way Bass-Reflex speaker system, with its flat front speaker (SC-PMX9 only), high-performance super tweeter (SC-PMX9 only), soft dome tweeter and woofer. Audio signals, from bass to treble, are divided into frequency ranges by the speakers to produce music with the rich, delicate nuances of original sounds, and clear, distortion-free sound. Rigidity has been increased in the diaphragm of the Soft Dome Tweeter to enhance the quality of the treble range.  Screw Type Speaker Terminals have also been employed to further raise sound quality by providing a better cable connection and greater stability in the signal transmission.

Convenient connection with the ‘Panasonic Music Streaming App’

Regardless of the type of wireless technology -- DLNA, AirPlay, or Bluetooth Wireless Technology -- the SC-PMX9 and SC-PMX7 can handle it with the “Panasonic Music Streaming App” developed by Panasonic for flexible playback of various forms of musical content. By simply installing the Panasonic Music Streaming App onto a smartphone, the variety of playable music content grows considerably. Music that has been archived onto an NAS (Network Attached Storage) or PC on a home network is displayed on the smartphone screen. The user simply needs to touch the desired music title to select it for fast and easy musical enjoyment.
