Technics SA-C600 Streaming CD Player Debuts at CES 2022
Technics' SA-C600 is a 'just-add-speakers' digital audio system catering for both streaming and CD playback.
Technics pitches the SA-C600 as a “Compact Network CD Receiver” and combines a top-loading CD player with a raft of streaming smarts and onboard amplification.
Doubling the new C600 series by joining the SB-C600 speaker system launched last September, the SA-C600 features built-in Chromecast and Spotify Connect through its wi-fi network chops while supporting hi-res audio from TIDAL (including MQA decoding), Deezer and Amazon Music. Additionally, you get AirPlay 2 for wireless playback directly from Apple devices and an integrated DAB/FM radio.
The just-add-speakers system claims to push put 60W per channel and boasts full-digital amp technology based on Technics' JENO (Jitter Elimination and Noise-Shaping Optimization) Engine. Also, the compact component is equipped with 'Space Tune' room compensation processing with an additional 'in-shelf' option to cater for different room placements.
If you need more than silver discs and streaming, the SA-C600 also sports an MM phono input allowing you to hook up a turntable and an optical in, enabling you to bring in your TV or another source to the party.
The Technics SA-C600 is available from February 2022 in silver or black for US$999.
