Technics All-in-One OTTAVA SC-C500 HiFi System Combines Breathtaking Audio Quality with Elegant Design

OTTAVA SC-C500 HiFi System: All-in-one style and performance

Technics has used its many years of experience engineering some of the most advanced home audio technology to create the ultimate compact Network CD Stereo Amplifier. Incorporating many of Technics’ groundbreaking components, such as the JENO Engine, LAPC and Battery Driven Clock Generator, the OTTAVA SC-C500 is able to deliver an audio experience typically associated with significantly larger amplifiers. 

Small and sleek, the OTTAVA SC-C500 is perfectly suited to homes and apartments with limited space. And by using only the most premium materials, the system boasts a finish that looks stunning from every angle. 

Technics’ new all-in-one system allows you to enjoy music with the very highest sound quality and from a diverse range of sources and devices. Whether you’re listening via high-res network audio, CD, USB memory device, USB-DAC or smartphone, control is easy and efficient, thanks to the latest Technics smartphone app. 

The OTTAVA speaker system has two woofers arranged symmetrically to reduce cabinet vibrations, as well as a spiral acoustic port design to produce rich and powerful bass that fills the room. The result is high-quality and immersive sound from a HiFi system that can subtly fit into the corner of a room or small cabinet. 

In addition to robust bass, the speaker system delivers outstanding performance across an extensive audio range. As the behaviour of sound waves differs depending on the specific pitch, the OTTAVA speakers employ different technology to emit either high or low frequencies. Low/mid frequency sounds are diffused by a reflector for clarity and resonance, while tweeters are arranged in a multi-angled configuration to deliver crisp and accurate high-frequency sounds.

As well as featuring a sleek and stylish finish, the shape of the speaker cabinet is also designed to prevent tweeter-emitted sounds interfering with the sounds from the other speaker units. This eliminates sound degradation and delivers high-quality sound in your home, regardless of where you’re standing.

Further to the new OTTAVA SC-C500, Technics has also announced the new OTTAVA SU-C550, a version without the speakers providing consumers with the flexibility to tailor their music system.
