Impressive Technics SU-G700 M2 Stereo Amplifier

The Technics SU-G700M2 has digital and analog inputs, making it perfect for all of your music equipment. Utilize the optical and coaxial digital inputs to connect your network streamer, CD, and TV. There is a USB-B for your PC or Mac’s computer audio. The MM/MC phono stage does a good job of supporting vinyl.
Reference-level audio technology The SU-G700 provides very low distortion and very well optimized sound quality thanks to remarkable Technics audio technologies like JENO and LAPC.

The speaker performance of your speakers is optimized by the LAPC algorithm. Better focus, richness, and definition are produced by flattening the amplitude and phase-frequency response via digital signal processing.
High-resolution digital signals are delivered by JENO without any distortion being added between the input stage and speaker output. By creating this unique jitter-reduction circuit, Technics has avoided the sound quality decrease brought on by jitter that is typical of standard digital amplifiers. Regardless of the audio source, less jitter results in a smoother, more harmonized sound.
Technics has a large amount of experience using battery power for amplification. Using batteries instead of direct mains power is said to result in a cleaner, less distorted power source. The SU-G700 uses the technology to increase the accuracy of the digital clock, which improves the definition of the sound.Technics SU-G700M2

The Technics SU-G700’s Load Adaptive Phase Calibration (LAPC) circuit, which helps in optimizing the amplifiers output characteristic to match whichever speakers are connected for the best signal transfer, is one of the device’s most intriguing features. The speaker sensitivity of Class-D amplifiers is well known, and anything offering a reasonably complex load at the speaker terminals doesn’t always yield the best results. similar to that of an amplifier using SET tubes. The SU-G700 does not have this issue at all because to Technics’ unique design, and it readily drove all of the speakers we had available.

A 70 wpc (into 8 ohms / 140 into 4 ohms) amplifier is placed in the small, stylish, and straightforward SU-G700s housing, but digital is implemented in an interesting way. Since this is a fully digital amplifier, no digital to analog conversion is really performed until the final output stage to the loudspeakers; up until that point, all digital signals (PCM/PWM) stay digital. As a result, no DAC is performed up until that point. This is how Technics’ digital amplifier differs from other designs, yet you still get the advantages of the better digital processing that a DAC would have provided because the entire system uses a 32/384 digital amplifier process.

A three-section configuration for better clarity – The Technics SU-G700M2 uses three sections specifically designed for providing optimum isolation between various amplifier functions. The finest details of music are preserved because circuitry processing micro-signals are isolated from those handling large currents.  Photo: TechnicsTechnics SU-G700M2
