The Technics Ottava SC-C500 is a premium system that's designed to give you a powerful sound from a sleek system.

One stylish system does it all

The stylish Technics Ottava combines many functions within a sleek casing. 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 sleek 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 Ottava is a fully equipped streamer it certainly hasn't forgotten about your silver discs; playing them to their best ability.

Connect up with USB and optical
As well as the Type-B at the back, the SC-C500 also has a standard Type-A USB socket at the front. Perfect for connecting up your MP3 player or memory stick, it's a really convenient way of playing back music. The optical input is ideal for plugging in your TV and giving the sound a huge boost through the Technics.

Putting sound quality first
Packed with Technics knowhow, the Ottava SC-C500 puts sound quality first. 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 deal with the issue of uneven speaker impedance, giving a more consistent sound quality across the board.

Small speakers - big sound
From its compact speaker system, the OTTAVA delivers a powerful bass that previously could only be produced by larger sized speakers. Each speaker enclosure contains two small-diameter 8-cm woofers (Twin Drive) to secure a sufficient diaphragm area to produce high sound pressure. They are arranged vertically to reduce the speakers' footprint to just 110 x 110 mm.

Style takes a front seat
More serious about style than ever, the sleek SC-C500 is a world away from the 'busy', button-filled, Technics of old. The heavy Perspex CD lid glides around with the style and solidity of something Scandinavian, while the brushed aluminium casing is all smooth curves and minimalist appeal. The result is elegant and most definitely easy on the eye.

Bringing together sound and style like little else, the SC-C500 marks a welcome return for this legendary brand.

We'll happily come to you!
