Panasonic SC-PMX802: Compact mini system running on Technics engine

Panasonic SC PMX802

Premium Mini System Hi-Fi Panasonic SC-PMX802 comes in a classic design and a full range of networking opportunities. The traditional CD-tray and DAB + tuner are complemented by a host of useful features: Chromecast (with Tidal and Deezer access), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Airplay 2 with Google Assistant control and Spotify Connect support.

The novelty works perfectly in tandem with a TV: the analogue AUX input is equipped with an auto-on function when a signal occurs. If you connect it, for example, with a headphone output, you get a completely functional replacement for ARC.


The quality of CD, MP3 and Bluetooth playback will be enhanced by the proprietary High-Res Re-Master function. The PMX802 reads audio from an external drive via USB on the front panel, including FLAC files up to 24-bit / 192 kHz. The JENO Engine (Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimization) from Technics is responsible for the improved sound.

The system head unit is connected to two three-way speakers with soft dome tweeters and bezels with wood texture. The PMX802 reproduces sound from the low frequency limit of 50 Hz. The system has received two finishes: black and silver.

In the UK, the Panasonic SC-PMX802 Hi-Fi System will cost £ 550.
