TECHNICS SU-G700M2 INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER, TECHNICS SB-G90M2 AND TECHNICS SB-C600 SPEAKERS LAUNCHED

Following on from the SL-1210G turntable news earlier this week, Technics has also announced the launch of three new products.

They are the Technics SU-G700M2 Integrated Amplifier, Technics SB-G90M2 Floorstanding speakers and Technics SB-C600 Bookshelf speakers.

TECHNICS SU-G700M2 INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER

The new Technics SU-G700M2 Integrated Amplifier features the advanced technologies derived from Technics’ Reference SU-R1000 Integrated Amplifier which have been trickled down to this more affordable price point. The SU-G700M2 inherits Technics’ full-digital core amplifier technologies, such as the JENO Engine (Jitter Elimination and Noise-Shaping Optimization) for highest signal precision free of jitter and distortion, and LAPC (Load Adaptive Phase Calibration) for optimal matching to any speaker.

The new SU-G700M2 also incorporates the following additional features an Advanced Speed Silent Power Supply(AS²PS), incorporating “fast” semiconductor parts such as GaN (Gallium-Nitride) FETs and Silicium Carbide (SiC) Diodes for a much more reactive, efficient supply of current to the power stage for higher drivability of speakers. This approach was used for the power supply of the Reference SU-R1000.

There is also a high-quality MC phono input stage (in addition to MM input) for direct connectivity to turntables with high-end MC pickup cartridges along with a    Phono Input Phase selector for optimised playback of mainly older vinyl discs recorded with inverted phase. Volume and source knobs now have the aluminium “spin” texture also derived from the SU-R1000 Reference Amplifier for clear distinction from the original SU-G700.

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

The Technics SU-G700M2 will be available in Europe from October 2021 for £2199. The finish options for the hairline-brushed aluminium casework are silver or black.

TECHNICS SB-G90M2 FLOORSTANDING SPEAKER SYSTEM

The Technics SB-G90M2 is the new floor-standing loudspeaker system in the Grand Class series. Like its predecessor, the SB-G90, the new M2 version is a 3-way bass reflex speaker system consisting of a 2-way coaxial driver that combines a 25mm dome with a 160mm aluminium midrange cone. This is accompanied by two 160mm woofers, also constructed from aluminium. With the new SB-G90M2, thorough CAE analysis was used to optimise drivers, elements and enclosure structures to eliminate unwanted vibrations and distortions.

Below are the technical enhancements of the SB-G90M2 loudspeaker system in comparison to its predecessor, the SB-G90:

Advanced Phase Precision Driver: The diaphragm of the Coaxial Driver Unit has been reworked. The structure has been newly calculated by FEM (Finite Elements Method) simulation for reduced resonance and a more natural midrange with less distortion. Also, a Linear Phase Plug has been added.

Advanced BDMA(Balanced Driver Mounting Architecture): The inner  Speaker Mount Baffle onto which the woofers are mounted at their centre of gravity around the magnet has now been extended to one plate attached to the base board, so vibrations can ‘escape’ to the ground

More Energetic Cabinet Structure: The whole inner stiffening structure has been redesigned in the lower part of the cabinet. The so-called Standing Wave Termination Structure – a multiple-folded wave guide containing a controlled amount of acoustically absorbing material – will efficiently eliminate standing waves, at the same time minimising the use of acoustic damping material

Responding to requests from Technics’ customer base, the new SB-G90M2 now features bi-wiring speaker terminals

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

The SB-G90M2 loudspeaker system will be available in Europe from October 2021 for £2199, in a black gloss finish.

TECHNICS SB-C600 BOOKSHELF SPEAKER SYSTEM

Technics has also announced the launch of the SB-C600 Compact Bookshelf Speaker System as part of its new Premium C600 Series. “When hearing the name ‘Technics’, most hi-fi and music lovers immediately think of our legendary turntables,” Frank Balzuweit, European Technics product manager explains. “However, the first Technics product ever built, back in 1965, was a small 2-way bookshelf speaker system. This design set a new performance level for compact speakers at the time.”

The SB-C600 is a compact 2-way bass reflex speaker with a unique coaxial drive unit working as a point source, built on the ‘Linear Phase’ principle. Technologically, it borrows many aspects from its bigger brother, the Technics SB-G90M2 speaker system. With the new SB-C600, thorough CAE analysis was used to optimise drivers, elements and enclosure structures.

Key features are:

Phase Precision Driver, emulating the driver in the SB-G90M2 floorstanding speaker, consisting of a 15cm large-diameter woofer, accompanied by a 25mm aluminium dome tweeter

Linear Phase Plug, as used in the SB-G90M2, suppressing unwanted phase disturbance.

Balanced Driver Mounting Architecture(BDMA), fixing the driver to an inner Speaker Mount Baffle in the centre of gravity around the magnet, thus preventing tumbling motion.

Front port with accurate curve and vortex generators designed via airflow analysis.

Rigid cabinet with inner Speaker Mount Baffle suppressing vibrations.

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

The SB-C600 will be available in Europe from November 2021 for £799 in a matte black finish.
