ST-C700D

Effectively removes noise to deliver
a pure listening experience.

Digital Noise Isolation Architecture

Just like the R1 series, the ST-C700D employs a jitter remover, a common mode filter for its LAN input, and a pulse transformer for its digital interface, thus improving the purity of its sound by blocking the entry of external noise.

Virtual Battery Operation

Virtual Battery Operation reduces noise generated by the power supply circuit by using the reference potential generating circuit for charging the capacitor.

Optimally Activated Circuit System

The Optimally Activated Circuit System shuts down unneeded digital modules, such as those for display, network, USB and digital interfaces, to minimise the noise generated during playback.

MQA

This unit includes the MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology, which enables playback of MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording.

Technics Music App
for Smartphones

The Technics Music App enables you to select a music source and playback equipment, and create playlists easily and comfortably on the screen of a tablet or smartphone. The Music App screen displays the music stored on a connected DLNA-compatible server, content stored on the device running the App, and music files on connected USB memory devices, giving you integrated playback control. Used with the SE-R1 or SU-C700, the Technics Music App not only allows you to control the volume and playback operations, but also lets you adjust the Bass, Mid and Treble levels.

High Res Re-master

Technics High Res Re-master converts an audio source to a high-resolution signal of up to 192 kHz/32 bits, pushing the effects of any digital noise beyond the audible band, and allowing natural and expressive sound, closer to the original music.

Ultra Low Distortion Oversampling Digital Filter

The oversampling digital filter incorporating Technics' original algorithm accurately removes the image to the -160 dB level or lower by using an oversampling digital filter, thus reproducing sound rich with spatial expression.

High Quality Analog Circuit

The ST-C700D uses Technics’ low-noise Digital Noise Isolation Architecture, a high-precision clock, and a high-precision D/A converter (Burr-Brown PCM1795(Texas Instruments)). The analogue circuits use high-quality components for the purest possible sound.
