”Technics has delivered a comprehensive specification and wrapped it in a strong performing, handsome and well made chassis and delivered one of the best options available for the price.” ’AV Forums’ – Recommended.
Big sound from a small speaker
The uniquely styled SC-C30 features stereo, two-way speakers spread across its curved front panel. This gives it a much wider sound than conventional, ‘box’ speakers. Combine this with the built-in subwoofer and you get deep, expansive sound from a compact unit. For total control, a dedicated 3.1 channel amp keeps a tight grip on the music.
Sound that only Technics can produce
Featuring unique Technics technology, the OTTAVA SC-C30 is designed for class-leading sound. Helping to reduce distortion to a minimum are three JENO (Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimization) engines. JENO works with Space Tune and LAPC to provide optimum performance from the left, right and subwoofer channels. LAPC (Load Adaptive Phase Calibration) uses corrective processing to get the perfect alignment with the built-in speakers.
Suits every room with Space Tune
Using the built-in microphone, the SC-C30 measures your room’s acoustics and optimises the sound to suit – giving you perfectly balanced sound in any space. For further tuning you can use an Apple iOS device to measure and compensate the frequency response. Alternatively, use one of the three presets for plug n’ play convenience. ‘Free’, ‘Near Wall’ and ‘Near Corner’ settings tailor the sound to suit.
All-in-one style and convenience
Featuring built-in amp, speakers and multiple sources, the SC-C30 is the complete music solution. Whether you want to stream music using Bluetooth, AirPlay 2 or Chromecast, stream Hi-Res music from your computer or just listen to Internet radio, this flexible Technics has it covered. Optical, analogue and USB connections also make it possible to easily add other sources, too.
Chromecast with Google Assistant
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button. Alternatively, use Google Assistant and this Technics smart speaker becomes part of your voice controlled smart home.
All your favourite music apps, plus Internet radio
With compatibility for Spotify (Premium account required for full features), Tidal and Deezer, the SC-C30 gives quick and easy access to popular music services. If you prefer subscription free, then simply switch to Internet radio for a vast choice of digital music stations from around the world.
Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth
Built-in Apple AirPlay 2 means that you can stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly. If you use another brand of smartphone or tablet then you also have Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.
High Resolution compatible USB
For the highest quality sound use the USB-A interface, connect your PC or Mac and enjoy file streaming right up to 384/32-bit WAV/AIFF, 384/24-bit FLAC/ALAC and DSD 11.2MHz. Use this in conjunction with Hi-Res music services and you will enjoy music realism and definition that’s a cut well above the rest.
Multi-room and stereo pairing
Download the Google Home App and you can use the SC-C30 as part of a multi-room home entrainment system. Play different music in each room or link all the speakers for ‘party sound’ all around your home – all under the control of your smartphone or tablet. Alternatively, use the Technics Audio Centre app and use compatible Technics devices to deliver multi-room sound or stereo pairing of two SC-C30 speakers.
With so many music sources available, Technics has made them easy to find, with Favourite Function. Set up to nine presets across all types of music sources. These might include Internet radio stations, a Deezer playlist and tracks from a USB playlist.
Unique Technics style
This premium music speaker is just as serious about style as it is sound. The louvered rear panel has become a Technics OTTAVA design signature and contrasts with smooth top panel and textured grille. The OLED display is surrounded by hotkeys for quick access to primary functions. The arc profile doesn’t just look good it also helps promote the broad, room-filling sound quality.
Listen in style, with the Technics SC-C30.
