New Streaming Amplifier Technics SU-GX70

The SU-GX70 is said to combine the sonic advantages of Technics' "Grand Class" models with lots of features. And the successful SL-1500C turntable is now also available in white.

Technics is expanding its "Grand Class" product range with the new SU-GX70. The streaming amplifier is supposed to combine their sonic heritage with an extraordinary variety of functions, including the processing of video signals. Technics is also offering its SL-1500C direct-drive turntable – read our review here! – in a new matte white finish. According to the manufacturer, this is in response to requests from many design-oriented fans who wanted another, modern color option for this model.

The SU-GX70 opens a new chapter, according to Technics, as it is the first product from the brand with an HDMI ARC connection on board. The full sonic potential of the HDMI ARC connection is stated to be reached thanks to Technics-developed technologies such as the JENO engine. In addition, the new, double power supply aims to ensure a high signal-to-noise ratio and thus guarantee a fine, detailed sound stage. Furthermore, the "Power Clean" technology adopted from the Technics Reference Class is said to free all following components from possible residual noise from the power supply.

Based on the Google Chromecast platform, streaming services like Spotify, TIDAL, Deezer and Qobuz are implemented. Amazon Music HD is to be added via OTA firmware update at a later date. MQA playback is also supported. Wi-Fi, Airplay2 and Bluetooth are available for wireless music playback. With two high-level and three digital inputs, as well as USB-A and USB-B jacks, connection options are available for a variety of music sources. The SU-GX70 supports Internet radio playback, and DAB+ and even analog FM radio are also on board. Last but not least, a phono input allows the connection of a turntable with MM cartridge.

The SU-GX70 will be available from June* for around €1800*. The SL-1500C in matte white is already available in May*, for around €1200*.

*Availability and prices for Germany.
