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 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs Needed a replacement for CD player that packed up (didn't want to throw them all away) and wanted my first music streamer. Also wanted it to be a smart looking unit as I planned to put it in my lounge. I was considering the Ottava but wasn't planning to spend the £650+ most places had it priced at, so when the offer from Richer Sounds came through at £499 I was made up and ordered straightaway. I'm not a great audiophile but know what I like and this to me sounds great. It fills a reasonably large room easily and is much better as background music for the neighbouring dining room than a smart speaker. Got brownie points from 'She-who-must-be-obeyed' for buying it, so it must be good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound - Easy Set-Up I bought this a couple of weeks ago and have not regretted my choice. Build quality is superb as is the sound. Set-up was easy and straightforward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy looking and packed with sound Now into my second week of living with the OTTAVA Forte and it’s all good news.Purchased to replace an ageing Bose system which my wife was not keen on doing however in just one week we are both delighted with the improvement in the sound quality on all the sources we use.The bass sound could be a little deeper for sure but the sound is smooth like all Technics and the clarity is superb hearing so much more detail which is important as it used in our kitchen on a daily basis.The unit looks great and ties in with our decor which is an added bonus,the remote control is old school but that’s not a bad thing considering where we use.We are very pleased with the Technics and at under £500 represents excellent value,if it stays that price might by another for our bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality build and amazing sound I have been looking at this unit for the last year, wanted as a replacement for my old Technics amp SU-A900mkII. I purchased the Technics SC-C50 speaker and was impressed by it sound so knew this would be the perfect piece of kit to replace my old system. As usual Richersounds had an offer that was too good to miss. Very happy customer once again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing, but not without limits So, I bought, as did many before me, to replace a separates system. The lack of clutter is great, and I’ve even gotten a Bluetooth adaptor for my turntable so it plays through it. And it’s a great sound, especially when you consider the size. BUT, it doesn’t have the bass that my separates had. Pretty sure my neighbours are relieved but I like my blues and ska, and that stuff only sounds good when you can hear the running bass line. However, once you get over that small issue (and compared to all its other qualities, it really is quite small) you will learn to really enjoy it. Recommended, honestly, but perhaps turn the bass up to 8 for old times sake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really pleased with the machine Got this two or three weeks back, looks good, sounds great, use for streaming internet radio and mainly for my CD collection. Has inspired me to revisit some older dicss in my collection. Punchy, powerful and clear sound, you don't need to turn up the volume to enjoy the quality of the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, simple, excellent sound range Neat product. Superb sound and does what I want: radio, bluetooth with iTouch for playlists etc, and playing CDs. And so simple to connect - 1 plug! Replaced my 30 year-Kenwood system which has been terrific, but I don't play vinyl or cassette tapes now and the CD player stopped working. And that had 3 plugs, separate speakers, miles of cables, dozens of connections. The Ottava is so simple to set up and operate. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and easy to use I bought this as a deal of the day, so it was even better value. It was easy to set up. The sound is very good and it a neat product that combines the main elements of a system. The DVD player is of a very good quality and easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound The Ottava arrived in god time and CDs sound really well on it. The radio is not quite so good but I think it will be better when I have taped the antenna to the wall in a better position. The instructions would be better for me if written by someone with limited technical knowledge (like me).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service, excellent sound. I have waited a long time to buy this piece of kit and am so glad I did. Compact, smart design. easy to use and above all a really full sound with lots of punch. It was a real unexpected bonus that I also received a separate high quality speaker in with the deal. Well worth the wait and the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and great sound I have had this unit for three weeks and it replaces a stack of separates that I have had for ten years plus. I am very pleased with the unit, the sound quality is superb, the DAB radio is great and it is very easy to stream music from Apple Music. It all works and sounds great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18 months in.. ...this remains an excellent buy! Tremendous depth in all different types recordings, whether streaming through Tidal, on CD, or via DAB. It replaced a tower unit of separates, and both sounds better and looks better.Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound The clarity of sound is just amazing. I have hearing loss like most musicians so listening to CD's on the Ottava was a new experience. I have heard instruments that I have never heard before. I put Mike Oldfield's Hergest Ridge and Ommadawn on first. I still have the vinyl's bought when released! The sound was incredible. I am so pleased with the Ottava.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has both great features and sound We bought this two weeks ago and we are so pleased with it. The product met all our requirements and now we spend many hours listening to it. Paul who sold it to us demonstrated it playing. He was very explanatory, as we are not good with technology and after a week he rang to see if we were ok with it and offered more help if we needed it. Delivery of our product was very quick, all in all an excellent service, and with the after sales help at hand, we would defiantly recommend this company and will be going back there if we need anything else. Well done.
