Technics boasts its new wide directional speaker concept which will fill the room with true music. Ottava SC500 is actually a combination of CD player, amplifier and stereo speakers but with Bluetooth, Airplay and Wi-Fi support, so that it can be said, it is primarily intended for the audiophile of the Internet age. Ottava speaker system has two woofers arranged symmetrically to reduce cabinet vibrations. Its spiral acoustic tube provide rich bass from a limited cabinet space. This speaker system delivers high-quality bass that is unimaginable from a speaker system with such a small cabinet.
In addition to powerful, robust bass, the speaker system must deliver everything from high to low frequency with no delay so the listener feels surrounded by clear, high-quality sound. Because the directivity of sound differs depending on the frequency range, the Ottava speaker system emits low-/mid frequency sounds and high-frequency sounds differently. Low-/mid frequency sounds are diffused by a reflector. For high-frequency sounds, tweeters are arranged in a multi-angled configuration.
The shape of the speaker cabinet is designed to prevent tweeter-emitted sounds from mixing with the sounds from other speaker units.
This eliminates sound degradation and delivers high-quality sound to the listener regardless of the listening position.
These advanced sound technologies are packed into a truly-essential and high-quality enclosure that is also appealing to the eye.
Ottava SC500 is now available at John Lewis, priced at £1,699 ($2,500).
