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 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 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 Technics OTTAVA FORTE SC-C70 After much time reviewing systems on a budget we were blown away by the quality of the sound this unit produced at the price .

First class service and price couldn’t wish for more .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system, excellent sound Bought this system for a bday present, for what we need it for, the system is perfect. Small, compact, quality sound and brill that it has a CD player as we now can listen to our old collection. Gary from Richard sounds was brill, enough knowledge and passion help us to make a decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect replacement I purchased the Ottava sc-c70 to replace my elderly hi fi separates.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever I bought the Ottava 5 weeks ago and although I had to wait for a few weeks due to stock issues I'm am one happy music lover. The sound, set up and look of this machine are all A1. I also have a Bose music wave which I thought was good but the Technics Ottava blows this away. Thank you Richer sounds for a great service . I'm one happy music loving customer who could not be happier with this excellent bit if kit the Technics Ottava.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service I bought a Technics OTTAVA FORTE SC-C70 from the Edinburgh store where I was able to arrange a demonstration at short notice. The staff were knowledgeable and were able to fully answer my questions. Once the order was placed there was a delay to the delivery but when the shop was contacted they quickly rearranged the delivery and instead brought the new unit to our home after work. This level of service gives me confidence that if I encounter any future problems the staff will be there to help. Having worked my way through the set-up instructions which are not always clear I have been very impressed with the sound quality and ease of use of the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful to behold, delivering superb sound ! To find quality sound in so small a package is wonderful. After a life-time of having to accommodate external speakers, what a joy it is to find this concentration of technology within a neat and visually pleasing exterior !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound Really pleased with the product. We had an issue after a couple of days but it turned out that it was because an update was due. Find ourselves listening to more music since buying this system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great full bodied sound. I’m very pleased with the quality of sound that this comparatively small unit produces. It’s frequency response for voices (singing & speaking) is amazing especially compared to traditional sound bars which can often lack depth within these frequencies. A surperb unit for clarity in a comparitivily small inconspicuous space Would recommend! A*****
Date published: 2018-10-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Sound Beautiful Design Wonderful crisp clear sound and a surprising level of Bass tones. Love it ....Really Love it. The basic functions are a breeze to use. Could do with some better Networking and setup instructions (sketchy at best - Get some You tube videos done) for the Technics Music App connectivity and Tidal connectivity. But once done it is great to use. Highly reccomend this product. I have forgotten the price already.....its that good
Date published: 2018-09-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but instructions... I bought this last week, and it produces excellent sound, with lots of space. The only downside I can see so far is that the instructions don't help much. So I just looked at the controller and messed around a bit, and got it to work perfectly with Bluetooth on my computer. Will no doubt figure the other possibilities in the same way. There should be a totally basic guide to this, which the instructions are not. But it is not difficult to figure out on your own. As ever the people at Richer sounds were friendly, helpful, and left one time to decide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realising our old equipment was very poor! Listening to CDs & they sound so much better. Skills & creativity much better than realised before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice unit sound quality is good. This unit is well made sound quality is very good you will need to be run in for a few days I used a isotec system cd this loosened up the speakers.At first to me it was bass heavy but it has bass,middle and treble settings or you can use different room position settings which samples itself for free,corner,wall settings very useful.the only thing thats needs redesigning is it needs two indents in the base plate to help you remove cd awkward if you have large hands otherwise a very nice system
