By positioning 2 woofers, 2 tweeters and 1 subwoofer into
its arc form body, the SC-C30 covers a wide listening area. Further, setting
the tweeter with a unique acoustic lens provides wide directivity. The amp
section features Technics' original Three JENO Engines (Jitter Elimination and
Noise-shaping Optimization). Using a 2.1-channel full digital amp configuration
to powerfully and accurately drive each speaker unit, clear sound imaging and
scaling are produced.
Truly Powerful Sound Architecture
The SC-C30 houses a total of 5 speaker units (a 12-cm
subwoofer, 6.5-cm x 2 woofers, and 1.6-cm x 2 tweeters) into a highly rigid
body reinforced by glass fiber. The tweeters reproduce up to the
ultrahigh-frequency range of 50 kHz to cover hi-res sound sources. Positioned
in the front surface of the body, the long-stroke subwoofer combines with a
large-diameter long port to produce clear, tight bass sounds. By placing these
speaker units in optimal positions, a powerful, expansive sound is produced
that is difficult to imagine from a compact speaker.
3 JENO Engines and LAPC (Load Adaptive Phase Calibration)
Technics' original Three JENO Engines produce optimal
performance, with superior sound imaging through subwoofer, woofer, and tweeter
alignment. This achieves excellent tuning and optimizes sound spaces to fit
individual listening environments using Space Tune™. The OTTAVA™ S SC-C30 also
features the LAPC function, which is load adaptive amplifier technology
developed by Technics. LAPC measures the amp's frequency amplitude phase
characteristics with speakers connected to the unit, and performs digital
signal processing to achieve the ideal impulse response. Parameters optimized
for the low-frequency and high-frequency speaker load characteristics are
pre-set in the LAPC computation circuit of the unit to realize ideal frequency
and phase characteristics over the entire frequency range.
Optimally balanced sound for any listening environment
The SC-C30 features Space Tune™ Auto to achieve optimally
balanced sound easily with the press of a button. This function measures test
tones played through a mic that is built into the SC-C30 to analyse the
distance to walls and the effect of reflections. It then automatically optimizes
the sound field. In addition, the Space Tune™ function includes 3 presets
(Free, Near the Wall, and Near the Corner) for easy setting, and uses a
Technics Audio Center app to precisely adjust the sound quality to the listening

Google Chromecast Built-in
The Chromecast built-in function supports a wide variety of
music streaming services for easy casting from a smartphone app. And since the
data is streamed directly to the main unit, there is no degradation in sound
quality, and the user can select from a diverse range of music.
Optimally Activated Circuit System
The Optimally Activated Circuit System allows the operation
of various digital modules to be stopped – such as those used for display ,
analogue and digital interfaces – to minimize the noise generated when music is
Works with the Google Assistant
If a Google Assistant built-in device is included is
included in the same network, Google Assistant can be used to operate OTTAVA™ S
SC-C30 music playback and other functions. When the user doesn't have a
smartphone app in hand, or when hands are full, music can be easily played by
Multi-room and Stereo Pairing*1
With a number of Chromecast built-in speakers, the variety
of music streaming services can be played in several rooms, or different music
can be played from room to room*2. In addition, if you use Technics Audio
Center app and have another app compatible Technics devices, you can also enjoy
other music source in multi-room such as Bluetooth®, AUX, Optical input, USB,
Internet radio and also OTTAVA™ S SC-C30 compatible streaming music. If two
OTTAVA™ S SC-C30s are arranged and set to stereo, you can enjoy highly ambient
stereo sound*1. *1 The stereo pairing function is scheduled for updating
simultaneously with the product launch.
*2 The Google Home App is required.
In addition to USB playback and analogue/optical input, the
SC-C30 supports Bluetooth®, AirPlay 2, Chromecast built-in, Spotify, Tidal, and
Network Playback, allowing comfortable playback of a diverse range of music
sources from a single unit.
Up to 9 presets can be set on the main unit, such as favorite
internet radio stations, a Spotify playlist, and USB songs. This makes it
possible to listen to your favorite music without even starting up an app.
An Elegant and Timeless Arc Form Design
The SC-C30 combines practical function with elegant design.
The thick aluminum top panel increases the rigidity of the chassis, and the
iconic OLED is surrounded by ring keys for easy operation. Rear louvers add
further elegance. And the beautiful arc form, which helps to eliminate unwanted
vibration in the chassis, incorporates acoustic technology to achieve a wide
sound stage. This lets you freely place the SC-C30 to suit the listening
position. And you can also choose a black or white color to match your room.
