The Network CD Receiver SA-C600 brings you a wealth of music content with a single device—everything from records, CDs, and radio to music streaming and more besides—with a luxurious audio environment courtesy of Technics’ superior sound engineering.
Full Digital Amp, JENO Engine (Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimisation)
The SA-C600 uses a fully digital amplifier incorporating Technics’ renowned digital audio technology. Its digital transmission system processes signals fully digitally in all stages from input to output. Compared to analogue transmission, this system is less susceptible to signal degradation caused by external noise, ensuring more precise signal transmission. Accurate signal processing not only delivers high-resolution digital audio but also maintains the soft texture inherent in analogue recordings.
The design of the power supply is extremely critical in audio systems containing CD players, amplifiers, digital circuits and other such components. To eliminate any adverse effects on the amplifier, the SA-C600 is equipped with a dedicated power supply for the amplifier circuits that is independent from all other circuits, supplying power to the two independent transformers. The wiring connections between the two dedicated transformers and the amplifier circuits are also optimised for noise reduction.
The power supply for the clock circuit of the JENO Engine utilises the same noise suppression circuit employed in Technics’ flagship turntable model, the SL-1000R, in order to improve noise reduction. It achieves superb sound image localisation and transparent spatial expression.
The built-in phono equaliser supports MM cartridges. The phono equaliser uses a dedicated power supply and is equipped with a power supply circuit that is different from the control circuit for improved noise reduction. The equaliser circuit also features a shielded construction to shut out the effects of external noise and allows for signal amplification without any loss of fidelity.
The SA-C600 is equipped with a Space Tune function that enables the adjustment of sound to suit the environment and location of the unit so that anyone can enjoy superb music reproduction. By using the Technics Audio Centre* app for tablets and smartphones or by selecting one of the four presets on the main unit—Free, Wall, Corner and Shelf—the user can achieve the most suitable sound reproduction for their specific acoustic environment.The L/R Custom feature allows users to enter separate settings for each individual speaker, adjusting for installation under different conditions and bringing out the best sound quality in any environment.* Available for iOS devices only
The SA-C600 supports a variety of music sources including CD, radio, phono input, optical digital input (including TVs), coaxial digital input, USB input, and more.
The SA-C600 can playback high-resolution music wirelessly. It supports not only Bluetooth® and AirPlay 2, but also Spotify Connect®, TIDAL, Amazon Music, and more, and comes with Chromecast built-in™.
The SA-C600 supports MQA and can playback MCA-CD and MQA files downloaded from music streaming services with outstanding sound quality.
To ensure consistency of appearance, the design of the SA-C600 incorporates elements from Technics turntables such as colour, texture and dimensions, improving the aesthetics of the system. The aluminium top panel sports a built-in CD player with a manually operated lid for ease of use and functional beauty.
I bought this to replace an aged Technics Mini Hi-fi wanting something I could play my CD collection on but equally leap in to the modern world of streaming etc. Primarily to reacquaint myself with CDs, my eclectic taste in music has given me the chance to try out many genres. This box of tricks is a joy, more than powerful enough for our lounge with plenty to spare whether it's some loud Metal or Rock, Blues as crisp as you like or even the odd bit of classical. The best compliment I can pay to this bit of kit is that my CDs sound better than I ever remember to the point one can hear so much more depth in them and parts never noticed before.I've not used the ability to stream etc yet but having the chance to cast from my phone is great. I feel this machine still has a lot to give. Very impressive.
