Wireless Audio with AirPlay
Lets you enjoy music anywhere in your home.
Wirelessly stream music from the iTunes library on your iPad/iPhone/iPod touch or PC/Mac to the HC57 or AP01 and enjoy it anywhere in your home. The music is streamed as lossless data, so there is no loss of sound quality from compression. And since there is no disc drive nearby, mechanical operating noise won't interfere with your enjoyment.

Remote Control App for iPhone
Smart operation with intuitive GUI
By installing a Remote Control App onto your iPhone or iPod touch, you can easily operate your HC57/AP01 by simply tapping and flicking on your iPhone or iPod touch. In addition to the remote control functions, you can also use screen operations to open the main unit's door, and to adjust the equalizer and other settings.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Airplay Device

Pros: Seamlessly works with Airplay out of the box.
Multiple setup options for different types of networks
Solid sound in a small, relatively low cost, package
AM/FM/CD/Aux/Apple Dock/Airplay means you can listen to anything
Holds a great wifi signal

Cons: First unit DOA
Panasonic support is UTTERLY CLUELESS. You think they'd get the message that its the 21st century and your support group should be able to do more then give a stock response that they read from the instructions. TRULY TERRIBLE SUPPORT.

Other Thoughts: I have to give this 4 stars because my first unit was DOA and Panasonic support sucks.

Once you get a unit its great! Anyone can walk into my office and start sending music to the system which they love. I still can't get over the fact that I can walk around with my iPhone in my pocket and listen to Pandora in full fidelity.

Good stuff, enjoying it. I hope it lasts!
