At Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, Technics showed off the latest addition to its OTTAVA line, the SC-C70 all-in-one music player. As the name suggests, the SC-C70 combines a music player, amplifier, and 2.1-channel speaker system into one compact cabinet. The system supports music playback via CD, USB, DLNA, AirPlay, and Bluetooth, and it also offers optical digital and auxiliary inputs and a headphone output. Wired and wireless network connection options are available. The amplifier delivers 30 watts per channel to each speaker and 40 watts to the internal woofer. The SC-C70 is available now for $999.
Technics unveiled its new SC-C70 compact stereo system at the HIGH END audio show in Munich. Equipped with JENO Engines (Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimization), LAPC (Load Adaptive Phase Calibration), Space Tune calibration software and excellent audio technology, Technics' new, compact SC-C70 delivers rich, high-quality sound, able to impress even the most discerning audio enthusiasts.
The Technics brand is known for producing visually stunning and technically high innovation audio products. The SC-C70 compact stereo system, featuring three JENO Engines that eliminate digital jitter, is no exception. The result is a crystal-clear sound with no perceptible distortion. The SC-C70 also features the LAPC function, which is load-adaptive amplifier technology developed by Technics to ensure perfect alignment with the loudspeakers. The system measures the phase and impedance properties of the integrated loudspeakers and optimizes the resulting sound output using the data it has obtained. Together with the precisely developed sound concept, which encompasses five loudspeakers, the SC-C70 is able to create a wonderfully spatial sound experience.
In order to optimize the spatial effect of the sound, acoustic lenses are used in front of the tweeters to further distribute and disperse the sound, especially in the high-frequency range. Furthermore, integrated acoustic louvers minimize fluctuations, particularly in the high-frequency range. Technics has developed Space Tune calibration software in order to achieve optimum sound quality. This software corrects parameters over its own network and enables the sound to be adjusted to the individual spatial situation.
Versatile networking with the Technics app, Apple AirPlay and DLNA
In addition to boasting high-performance hardware, the SC-C70 is also easy to operate. No matter whether the music is to be played in high-resolution format via a network, a CD, USB connection or smartphone, music fans are always able to maintain full control, thanks to the intuitive and easy-to-use Technics app.
The integrated Apple AirPlay function also enables users to stream music files smoothly from various Apple devices such as an iPod, iPhone or iPad. The SC-C70 is DLNA-compatible and can also be easily connected to mobile devices from other manufacturers via Bluetooth, allowing access to music from popular streaming services such as Spotify and TIDAL.
Due to its striking and stylish aesthetics, the SC-C70 is the perfect addition to any home. The smooth acrylic glass plate covering the top-loading CD compartment adds a touch of elegance to this compact system.
The SC-C70 is available now for $999.
