The new Technics Network CD Receiver SA-C600 brings you a wealth of music content with a single device — everything from records, CDs, and radio to music streaming and more — with a luxurious audio environment courtesy of Technics’ superior sound engineering. It showcases Technics’ legacy of renowned digital audio technology and flawless construction, eliminating noise and rendering a colourful, vibrant expression of sound space. This versatile receiver unit has a twin power supply circuit system for incredibly clear performance, Spacetune™ technology to automatically optimize the sound field, and incredible connectivity across wireless, digital, and analog channels.
The design of the power supply is extremely critical in audio systems containing CD players, amplifiers, digital circuits and other such components. To eliminate any adverse effects on the amplifier, the SA-C600 is equipped with a dedicated power supply for the amplifier circuits that is independent from all other circuits, supplying power to the two independent transformers. The wiring connections between the two dedicated transformers and the amplifier circuits are also optimised for noise reduction.
The built-in phono equaliser supports MM cartridges. The phono equaliser uses a dedicated power supply and is equipped with a power supply circuit that is different from the control circuit for improved noise reduction. The equaliser circuit also features a shielded construction to shut out the effects of external noise and allows for signal amplification without any loss of fidelity.
The SA-C600 is equipped with a Space Tune function that enables the adjustment of sound to suit the environment and location of the unit so that anyone can enjoy superb music reproduction. By using the Technics Audio Centre* (iOS only) app for tablets and smartphones or by selecting one of the four presets on the main unit—Free, Wall, Corner and Shelf—the user can achieve the most suitable sound reproduction for their specific acoustic environment.
The L/R Custom feature allows users to enter separate settings for each individual speaker, adjusting for installation under different conditions and bringing out the best sound quality in any environment.
The SA-C600 supports a variety of music sources including CD, radio, phono input, optical digital input (works with TVs), coaxial digital input, USB input, and more.
The SA-C600 can playback high-resolution music wirelessly. It supports not only Bluetooth® and AirPlay 2, but also Spotify Connect®, TIDAL, Amazon Music, and more, and comes with Chromecast built-in™. The SA-C600 supports MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) and can playback MQA-CD and MQA files downloaded from music streaming services with outstanding sound quality.
