Panasonic says the SC-HC05 and SC-HC55 are equipped with Bluetooth Re-Master circuitry, "which compensates for audio signals that are lost during Bluetooth wireless transmission, thus further enhancing the quality of digital music."

The SC-HC55 sports a motorized, Touch-Free Sensor door that's equipped with a motion sensor, enabling it to open and close by simply passing your hand over it.

Your iPhone or iPod docks inside.
