Technics Announces the New SB-C600 Bookshelf Speaker System as Part of the New Premium C600 Series
7th September 2021 - Technics today announced the launch of the SB-C600 Compact Bookshelf Speaker System as part of its new Premium C600 Series.
“When hearing the name ‘Technics’, most hi-fi and music lovers immediately think of our legendary turntables,” Frank Balzuweit, European Technics product manager explains. “However, the first Technics product ever built, back in 1965, was a small 2-way bookshelf speaker system. This design set a new performance level for compact speakers at the time.”
“It is no longer a big challenge to be able to design huge speaker systems capable of a large, realistic performance. However, to be able to craft a very compact speaker system that can recreate a spacious, ‘concert hall’ experience in the home – revealing every detail with vibrancy, yet with power and a large soundstage – requires advanced expertise. Technics’ engineers have made best use of their know-how, perfectly demonstrated in the new SB-C600 speaker system.”
The SB-C600 is a compact 2-way bass reflex speaker with a unique coaxial drive unit working as a point source, built on the ‘Linear Phase’ principle. Technologically, it borrows many aspects from its bigger brother, the Technics SB-G90M2 speaker system.
With the new SB-C600, thorough CAE analysis was used to optimise drivers, elements and enclosure structures to efficiently eliminate unwanted vibrations and distortions, and to significantly improve overall clarity and performance quality.
The SB-C600 will be available in Europe from November 2021 for £799 in a minimalist matte black finish.
