SECAUCUS, N.J., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Panasonic today announces the
pricing and availability of the new NE (Network Era) Series of wireless
speaker systems. The SC-NE1, SC-NE3 and SC-NE5 feature the ultimate in sound
quality with full wireless connectivity.

Panasonic's new NE series has the latest in advanced networking features with
enhanced high-quality sound for the ideal listening experience as well as a
curved aero stream port to control the airflow and reduce the noise emitted
from the ports, resulting in clearer, more robust bass. This new wireless
speaker concept is designed with the consumer in mind, allowing for streaming
music without the need to dock the device.

The NE5 includes docking/CD unit with a lightening pin connection to
seamlessly work with the iPhone 5 /iPod touch (5th generation). It also
includes a USB terminal making it possible to connect with a wide range of
music devices, while both the NE5 and NE3 can be synced through DLNA, AirPlay®
and Bluetooth® for other Apple or Android devices. AirPlay® allows users to
wirelessly stream music from an iPad, iPhone, iPod or MAC/PC directly into the
device through a wireless LAN network. The new Panasonic Music Streaming app
makes it easy for a user to control all the music streaming directly from
their smartphone or tablet, no matter what wireless connection they use. 

Providing rich and strong sounds from treble to bass, the NE series features a
2-way Speaker System to treat listeners to clear, well-balanced sounds. The
rigid lightweight Nanosized Bamboo Cone speaker with high acoustic velocity is
used to achieve sounds with high sound pressure and clarity. Enclosed in the
system is a 3-1/8 inch Long Stroke Woofer which employs large-amplitude
vibrations to produce the genuine deep base sounds. Crystal clear dialog and
vocals are also produced with the embedded one-inch Tweeter providing the
listener with an unmatched audio experience. A Pure Direct Sound System
reduces distortion from sound reflection and the Direct-Vocal Surround feature
positions musical instruments in a surround configuration, accentuating vocals
in the center so a user can enjoy a concert-like experience.

The Panasonic SC-NE5, SRP $449.99, and SC-NE-3, SRP $299.99, will be available
in May 2013 for at retailers nationwide and The SC-NE1,
SRP $199.99, is currently available.
