Four JENO Engines produce optimal performance, with superior
sound imaging through subwoofer, midrange, and tweeter alignment. This
achieves excellent tuning and optimises sound spaces to fit individual
listening environments using Space Tune.
LAPC is an original Technics speaker load adaptive
technology. It 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. Characteristic parameters optimised for the
low-frequency and high-frequency speaker load characteristics of speakers are
already pre-set in the LAPC computation circuit of the unit to realise ideal
frequency and phase characteristics over the entire frequency range.
To provide the OTTAVA™ S SC-C50's excellent sound in every
room and listening position, Space Tune optimises the listening environment to
the sound space.
In addition to offering 3 preset modes to suit the mounting location, a
microphone built into the main unit enables an Auto function to optimise the
sound and an iOS device can also be used to measure and compensate the
frequency response with greater precision. This allows the user to enjoy higher
sound quality regardless of where the unit is placed.
In addition to USB playback and analogue/optical input, the
OTTAVA™ S SC-C50 supports Bluetooth, AirPlay, Chromecast built-in, Spotify,
Tidal, Deezer, Internet Radio and Network Playback, allowing comfortable
playback of a diverse range of music sources from a single unit. High
connectivity also supports multi-room, stereo pairs*, and Wi-Fi, as well as iOS
and Android control apps.

Elegant and Timeless Design
The OTTAVA™ S SC-C50 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 while enhancing the function of an internal
heat-reducing mechanism. And the beautiful arc form, which helps to eliminate
unwanted vibration and standing wave in the chassis, incorporates acoustic
technology to achieve a wide sound stage. This lets you freely place the OTTAVA™
S SC-C50 to suit the listening position.
A Compact Body with a Wide Sound Stage
The arc-shaped body houses 3 midranges, 3 tweeters and 1
subwoofer, while left- and right-angled speakers and a centre speaker create
rich stereo imaging and crisp vocals. A “directivity-control horn” eliminates
mutual speaker interference to achieve wide directivity, and a coaxial midrange
and tweeter ensure vertical directivity with less frequency disorder from the
Truly Powerful Architecture
Three 1.6-cm tweeters deliver high-res sound up to 50 kHz.
This combines with a front-firing 12-cm long-stroke subwoofer and a straight,
large-diameter, long port. A total of 7 units in the rigid, glass fiber
reinforced body produce powerful sound from the 3.1-channel amplifier.
Twin Power Supply Circuit System
Regular power supplies use one transformer to supply power
to the amp, and digital circuits, and so if there is any load fluctuation or if
noise occurs on a circuit, other circuits are affected, which results in
degradation of the sound quality. This power supply system includes
independently installed switch mode power supply circuitry for the amp and the
other circuits, which eliminates mutual interference, thereby reducing
degradation of sound quality caused by noise or power supply fluctuations. In
addition, a layout with dedicated transformer and amp circuits enables the
shortest possible connection to further reduce noise.
The Chromecast 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.
Works with the Google Assistant
If a Google Voice-activated Speaker is included in the same
network, Google Assistant can be used to operate OTTAVA™ S SC-C50 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 voice command.
Multi-room and Stereo Pairing*
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. *The Google Home App is required.
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-C50 compatible streaming music. If two OTTAVA™ S
SC-C50s are arranged and set to stereo, you can enjoy highly ambient stereo
