Today, Technics announced the launch of the new SA-C600 Compact Network CD Receiver, which is part of the new ‘Premium C600’ series. This new Technics line also includes the highly capable SB-C600 Compact Speaker System, which launched in November 2021.
The SA-C600 is an addition to the Technics portfolio, filling the gap between the all-in-one compact speaker systems, such as C70MK2, and true separate component systems, such as the C700 and the G700 systems. There is high demand for compact, elegant and high-performing receiver components, which cover the needs of many modern music lovers and ambitious hi-fi fans. While many audiophiles choose components that outperform all-in-one table-top systems, compact receivers like the SA-C600 offer the option to connect virtually to any speaker system. This enables a higher performance level than all-in-one solutions, without the need for several components within the home audio setup.
The new SA-C600 incorporates the sophisticated full-digital amplification technology of the JENO Engine, which is the basis for the powerful and dynamic audio quality of all Technics products. However, the SA-C600 Compact Network CD Receiver also meets rising consumer demands for connectivity and flexibility.
The SA-C600 has an impressive list of key features and specifications:
- Elegant, compact CD top-loader design
- 2 x 60W into 4 ohms for room-filling power and dynamics
- Technics’ proprietary full-digital amplifier based on the JENO Engine (Jitter Elimination and Noise-Shaping Optimization)
- Low Noise Power Supply
- Left and right channel individual Space Tune with additional “In-shelf” option
- High-quality Phono MM input
- Optical SPDIF input with auto power-on function when detecting source signal – especially comfortable with TV signals
- Subwoofer output
- Chromecast built-in for multiroom capability and access to streaming services
- Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Deezer, Amazon Music
- Internet Radio / DAB / FM
- AirPlay 2
- MQA decoding
The already-launched SB-C600 is an ideal match for the high-quality performance of the new SA-C600 Compact Network CD Receiver. Together, they form an attractive, audiophile-standard combination that sets new standards for audio quality and design within the modern home.
The SA-C600 will be available in February 2022. It will come in an elegant body with a hairline-brushed aluminum top plate in either silver or black.
