Digital amp technology at its finest
Having successfully relaunched into the hi-fi in 2014, Technics have spent the subsequent years perfecting their award-winning digital amp technology. The result is the Technics SU-R1000 amplifier – a hugely powerful, digital amplifier that is also amongst the most natural and refined-sounding in its class.
Active Distortion Cancelling Technology (ADCT) for the truest sound
ADCT is Technics’ latest digital amp technology and plays a major part in the SU-R1000’s superior sound quality. The system actively extracts distortion in the power output and applies correction to the digital output signal, giving your speakers the most natural and lifelike sound possible.
Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimization (JENO) for smoother audio
JENO works with ADCT to deliver high-resolution digital signals without any distortion being introduced between the input stage and output to the speakers. Technics has developed an original jitter-reduction circuit, avoiding the sound quality degradation due to jitter common to conventional digital amps. Lower jitter means a smoother, more harmonious sound – whatever the music source.
Load Adaptive Phase Calibration (LAPC) for optimised speaker matching
LAPC is a speaker impedance optimisation algorithm that optimises your speakers’ performance. Using digital signal processing to flatten both the amplitude and phase-frequency response, the result is sound with better focus, spaciousness and definition.
Reference quality power supply
Featuring four, independent power supplies, the SU-R1000 offers reference levels of audio precision. Digital and analogue sections of the pre-amp are individually powered, as are the right and left halves of the power amp section. This power split helps improve the signal to noise ratio and gives this Technics amp exceptional detail and consistency.
Battery Driven Clock Generator
Technics used battery power for low-noise applications in analogue amplifiers in the past: here, this same technology is used to improve digital clock precision, enhancing the sound’s definition.
High quality, adjustable phono stage
If you’re adding a turntable to your system, then you’re in for a treat with the sound and optimisation possibilities with this Technics amp. The high quality phono stage uses three stages of digital technology to enhance the sound. Accurate EQ Curve uses low-pass filter correction to improve the signal to noise ratio. Crosstalk Canceller uses a calibration record (supplied with the amp) to provide a sharper focus and more expansive sound. Finally, Response Optimiser perfects the impedance matching between cartridge and amp, bringing out the cartridge’s true sound.
All the connections
When it comes to connecting up, the Technics SU-R1000 is one of the best in the business. On the digital side, you’ll find twin USB, optical and coaxial inputs. Analogue inputs can be found in the form of XLR and RCA phono (x3). Equally, you can connect your turntable via a choice of XLR (MC only) or RCA phono (MM/MC). For future upgrades, there are pre out/power in RCA sockets, plus a record output. Add in a high quality headphone output and you’ve everything you could need from a high-end amp.
