Technics SC-C30 Premium Class Wireless Speaker

$1,299.00

A multi source wireless speaker with Bluetooth and Chromecast built-in, all in an elegant & compact body.

Up to 9 presets can be set on the main unit, such as favourite internet radio stations, a DEEZER playlist, and USB songs.
This makes it possible to listen to your favourite music without even starting up an app.

The thick aluminium top panel increases the rigidity of the chassis, and the iconic OLED is surrounded by ring keys for easy operation.
Rear louvers add further elegance while enhancing the function of an internal heat-reducing mechanism.

And the beautiful arc form, which helps to eliminate unwanted vibration and standing wave in the chassis, incorporates acoustic technology to achieve a wide sound stage.
This lets you freely place the OTTAVA™ S SC-C30 to suit the listening position.

Features

A Wide Soundstage from a Compact Body – Three 1.6-cm tweeters deliver high-res sound up to 50 kHz. This combines with a front-firing 12-cm long-stroke subwoofer and a straight, large-diameter, long port. A total of 7 units in the rigid, glass fibre reinforced body produce powerful sound from the 3.1-channel amplifier.

Accurate and Rich Sound Reproduction – The SC-C30 is equipped with three units of Technics’ original JENO Engine (Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimization) full-digital amp. The JENO Engine drives each speaker unit accurately and powerfully. Furthermore, the impulse response improvement technology, LAPC (Load Adaptive Phase Calibration), realises ideal speaker drive to deliver accurate and information-rich sound.

Faithful Sound Reproduction from Bluetooth® and Compressed Audio Sources – A technology is utilised that reproduces high-quality sound from compressed audio sources used in streaming music services, Internet radio and Bluetooth®. Technics’ Re-master technology that uses a proprietary algorithm reproduces signals as close to the original audio source as possible, thus eliminating sound quality degradation that normally occurs in the reproduction of audio signals from compressed audio sources.

Space Tune – To provide the OTTAVA™ S SC-C30’s excellent sound in every room and listening position, Space Tune optimises the listening environment to the sound space. In addition to offering 3 preset modes to suit the mounting location, a microphone built into the main unit enables an Auto function to optimise the sound and an iOS device can also be used to measure and compensate the frequency response with greater precision. This allows the user to enjoy higher sound quality regardless of where the unit is placed.

Complete Compatibility – In addition to USB playback and analogue/optical input, the OTTAVA™ S SC-C30 supports Bluetooth®, AirPlay 2, Chromecast built-in, Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Internet Radio and Network Playback, allowing comfortable playback of a diverse range of music sources from a single unit. High connectivity also supports multi-room, stereo pairs, and Wi-Fi, as well as iOS and Android control apps.

Multi-room and Stereo Pairing – With a number of Chromecast built-in speakers, the variety of music streaming services can be played in several rooms, or different music can be played from room to room. (The Google Home App is required.)  In addition, if you use Technics Audio Center app and have another app compatible Technics / Panasonic devices, you can also enjoy other music source in multi-room such as Bluetooth, AUX, Optical input, USB, Internet radio and also OTTAVA™ SC-C30 compatible streaming music. If two OTTAVA™ S SC-C30s are arranged and set to stereo, you can enjoy highly ambient stereo sound.

Broad Selection of Streaming Services, Easy-to-use Controls – Chromecast built-in supports a wide variety of music streaming services for easy casting from a smartphone app. And since the data is streamed directly to the main unit, there is no degradation in sound quality, and the user can select from a diverse range of music.  If a Google Assistant-enabled device is included in the same network, the Google Assistant can be used to operate OTTAVA™ S SC-C30 music playback and other functions. When the user doesn’t have a smartphone app in hand, or when hands are full, music can be easily played using just your voice.
