Panasonic SC-PM250BEBS DAB Micro Hi-Fi System – Tremendous Bass – Bring on the Barry White !

I bought this system as i wanted something to listen to my old cds on but still connect via bluetooth etc. I didn’t want to spend mega-bucks and wanted something compact to sit in the lounge. I have to say i’m really impressed with this little system, it gives a much better sound than the single unit wireless speaker systems i’ve tried. It’s really easy to set up and use. The fact it had dab radio was a nice bonus (i’d probably suggest getting a free standing aerial though as i’ve found it a bit hard to get a good signal with the cable aerial that comes with it). The only drawback i’ve found so far is the speaker cables are a little short so if you want to separate the speakers more than a few feet you’ll need to get some extra cable. But when you consider the price of the system against what you get for your money, it really isn’t a big issue.

I was worried that it wouldn’t be loud enough or it would sound tinny. You might want to purchase better speakers for large areas but turning the volume to 1/3 maximum allows my to hear it loud and clear at the end of my garden (50ft). Dab is great with built in ariel.

Am enjoying listening to my favourite rock music on it – fairly loudly. Couldn’t wait to unpack it, very well boxed up. Am enjoying listening to my favourite rock music on it – fairly loudly. Would recommend this hi-fi system. Here are the specifications for the Panasonic SC-PM250BEBS DAB Micro Hi-Fi System:

Great price and sound quality. Lovely little system, but not short on power and clarity. Very surprised at the quality for the price.

It gives a rich clear sound and its nice to see a proper bass and treble control. A lovely hifi, which fits perfectly in the small space under our stairs. It gives a rich clear sound and its nice to see a proper bass and treble control, seldom seen on compacts these days. The dab radio is very good and has picked up lots of channels when our portable dab does not. There is a scrolling display of station and information which is dimmable. The process to store the radio channels is a bit over complicated, but have managed to get 20 of my favourites stored. It also has four sound modes, of which i prefer heavy, and also surround and dynamic bass. The speakers are well made and give a great sound. The bluetooth is a great feature and when started the pairing, it quickly found my iphone and played with no problems. I’ve never had a panasonic but i would recommend this, it is a superb little hifi with great build quality and great service from southern electric via amazon.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Big on features, cheap on build
  • Lovely hi fi system.
  • A lot better than I expected !

Big on features, cheap on build. I’ve given this 5 stars based on its performance/value for the price. It isn’t perfect, but its shortcomings can be forgiven in lieu of its features. First the negatives; as per a previous review, the rear cover is plastic, not metal, and has obtrusive-looking screws on the side panels. It does give it a ‘cheap’ feel, but once its on the shelf/wherever you may be putting it, its not really something you’ll notice or dwell on. The cd tray also feels a bit on the flimsy side, certainly not as sturdy as some of its (cheaper) contemporaries, but it functions ok. The remote may be the system’s biggest downfall. In an effort to keep it small (cost cutting?) many functions are grouped into one button, which you must then repeatedly press to cycle through to the option you require. Main transport/volume/source controls have their own buttons however.

Conclusion – great for a bedroom ,kitchen ,dinning room or a good budget main hi-fi. Read some of the negative reviews but as i could not find any simple to use alterantives thought well can always send it back. Apperance looks very nice in the bedroom not cheap or nasty at all. Sound -very impressed for £100 its pretty amazing ,turned it on full was to loud to stand next to ,it replaced a £350 hi fi and on low-med volume i’m not sure i could tell the difference. Conclusion – great for a bedroom ,kitchen ,dinning room or a good budget main hi-fi and simple to operateedit -presets are very complicated to set and gave up ,instructions do not follow what the remote has and took a long time to get back to normal dab ——lost a star.

A good product, very small but a very rich and powerful sound. For the price, i would recommend.

A simple cd player radio something i couldnt find locally to buy well happy. Arrived very quickly well done hermes well packaged without being over the top. The machine itself is exactly what i was looking for simple and effective, got a good tone easy to use and very compact, its brilliant love it.

Does not work with ipod unless ipod has bluetooth. I’m sure most people know but one of the reviews here says you can use ipod through the usb, you can’t and there’s no aux in. I realised this after about 5 minutes but in that time i was v impressed with sound quality and volume and upset that i am having to send it back.It was a reconditioned one from worldtech that looked immaculate and arrived the day after ordering – not 3-5 days later as expected.

After having read reviews of this item, and other more expensive alternatives, i decided to buy. Pairing with my samsung s3 was very easy. The dab radio was easy to set up (some alternatives that i considered did not come with aerial, this one does but needs to be taped to the wall). I live in a good dab reception area and have a very good signal. Best check your coverage online. The unit allows you control over bluetooth, volume level, various eq settings, an input for flash drive (mp3 only) play either by track or albumn folder, + timer for sleep/alarrm clock. The speakers are small but if you don’t want to ‘bang’ it out and annoy your neighbours are perfectly adequate.

    Really good value and sounds good. It’s never going to be a ruark or a bose but it’s really quite good.

      1. Nice compact unit for the price, bought it to replace our old sony c/w cassette player (what’s that)tuning the radio is a bit of a faff & the instructions don’t seem to help. Also a head phone jack would have been nice although in fairness it does say in the description that there isn’t one. We play cd’s most days which is what we mainly wanted it for. All in all a tidy little unit with a nice sound.

    1. Good system let down by a useless dab aerial. Good system let down by a useless dab aerial. I can’t think how they could mess up on such a simple item. All my other dab aerials – and i have a few – work perfectly.
