A fully featured Technics system, all packed into a stylish box - the Technics SC-C70EB is the perfect blend of sound and style.

Packed with sound enhancements

Full of Technics knowhow, the SC-C70EB delivers a stunning sound from a compact box. Helping to reduce distortion to a minimum is JENO (Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimization). The Technics system reduces jitter at both ends of the frequency range, giving you crystal-clear clarity. It also features LAPC (Load Adaptive Phase Calibration). This uses corrective processing to get the perfect alignment with the built-in speakers.

All-in-one style and convenience
Featuring built-in amp, speakers and multiple sources, the SC-C70EB is a one stop shop solution. Whether you want to stream music from your mobile or tablet using Bluetooth or AirPlay, stream Hi-Res music from your computer or just play CDs, this flexible Technics has it covered. Optical and USB connections also make it possible to easily add other sources, too.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
Built-in Apple AirPlay 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've also got Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

High Resolution compatible USB
For the highest quality sound use the asynchronous USB at the rear, connect your PC or Mac and enjoy file streaming right up to 192/32-bit PCM and DSD 5.6MHz. Use this in conjunction with hi-res music services, such as Technics Tracks and you’ll enjoy music realism and definition that’s a cut well above the rest.

Technics Music App
Technics haven’t just been working on their hardware, they’ve been developing some impressive software, too. The Technics Music App not only lets you select a music source and create playlists but also facilitates streaming music from other devices on your system, linked via DLNA. In short, it gives you effortless control of all your streaming needs. Available free for iOS or Android, the Technics Music App gives you complete control.

Top quality CD player
Taking centre stage, a Perspex plate glides to one side to reveal a high quality CD player. Using their decades of experience with CD players, Technics have produced a super-smooth sounding and highly detailed player. Although the Technics system is a fully equipped streamer it certainly hasn’t forgotten about your silver discs; playing them to their best ability.

Unique Technics style
This premium music system is just as serious about style as it is sound. A heavily ribbed front panel contrasts with the brushed aluminium top plate to give a unique and striking appearance. The heavy Perspex CD lid glides open to add theatre to playing your music.

Don’t compromise on sound or style, choose the flexible Technics SC-C70EB for all your compact music system needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, good features, but software issue Bought for its sound quality and good range of features including CD, Radio, Bluetooth and Internet Streaming all in one box. However, after 5 months it developed a problem, possibly a software bug, with the DAB radio function. It was sent it off for repair, but when the workshop reported that they would need another part which would take a further 6 weeks, Richer Sounds immediately offered to replace our unit with a brand new one. It is now performing flawlessly. Great service from Richer Sounds! We like this unit, depite the hiccup, for its excellent sound quality, CD player and general versatility. Only one small comment, the display is a bit on the small side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of features and great sound. I bought it two weeks ago and I`ve been using it every day. The sound is amazing. Very good quality. I think it`s a very good choice in "all-in-one" systems. Besides the online shop offers very quick delivery - Technics arrived at me the next day after purchased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value Whilst this product is not top of the range for its price tag it performs extremely well and as explained to us by the store manager there are more updated systems available but this one will not disappoint which is spot on, The product is compact, fairly easy to set up and does exactly what it says on the tin. The sound is rounded, clear and powerful enough for most needs,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Sound The Technics OTTAVA is the best CD player and radio I have ever owned. The sound is perfectly balanced and I feel like I am listening to my CDs through new ears, this is a purchase I am glad I made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended as a one piece Bought this to replace a 30 year old multi piece hi fi unit that had seen better days. Wanted good sound without the hassle of speakers and wires as well as the ability to move it from room to room. Did lots of research, neede the ability to play cds (still have lots) play from usb as well as radio. Only downside is the small display which requires you to sit close to when setting up (do read the instructions or you will get frustrated). Perhaps youngsters can set it up easily but us oldies do strugle with the internet / router etc codes for this and that. If you read the instructions is does set up automatically and connect to the router!! Especially good value now that the mark2 version has come out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, feature rich and well built I bought the OTTAVA as a study/bedroom system a couple of weeks ago. I have seen mixed reviews and did wonder if I was making the right decision. However, I need not have worried. It is a very solid well built piece of kit. Full of features, seemingly bomb proof operation with excellent wireless and bluetooth connectivity and most importantly great sound. (Solid bass expressive mid range and clear but not harsh highs, plenty of volume with no strain, good sound staging for this type of system. Definitely a premium product in my book. Given that my main system cost over £15k I am genuinely surprised at how listenable I find the OTTAVA. One thing, make sure you download the full instructions and read them carefully to ensure that you get the best out of the system.
