Accompanying the HC Series are three new SC Mini Systems - the boombastic SC-MAX700, SC-AKX56 and SC-AK16, promising state-of-the-art technology and the new speaker systems.

The SC-MAX700 has nano-sized bamboo cone speakers for clearer vocals and Direct-Vocal Surround to expand sound throughout a listening environment to mimic a concert hall.

The SC-MAX700 and SC-AKX56 ($399) both have a large internal memory, storing 1000 and 510 songs respectively, double USB ports.
