JENO Engine(Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimization)
Just like the R1, the SU-C700 is a fully-digital amplifier and delivers high-resolution digital signals without any distortion being introduced between the input stage and output to the speakers. Technics has developed an original jitter-reduction circuit, avoiding the sound quality degradation due to jitter common to conventional digital amps. It uses a clock generator for the noise-shaping system to reduce jitter in the low-frequency range and a high-precision sample rate converter to suppress jitter in the high-frequency range.
Technics has developed a speaker impedance optimisation algorithm, using digital signal processing to flatten both the amplitude and phase-frequency response to make the most of your speakers. The result is a sound with better focus, spaciousness and definition.
Technics used battery power for low-noise applications in analogue amplifiers in the past: here, this same technology is used to improve digital clock precision, enhancing the definition of the sound.
The SU-C700 supports a wide range of inputs, such as SPDIF, Analogue and Phono, as well as USB-DAC for connection of a PC. The digital input terminal supports coaxial 192-kHz/24-bit PCM and optical 96-kHz/24-bit. The USB DAC input terminal supports 192-kHz 32-bit PCM and 2.8-MHz/5.6-MHz DSD native playback (analogue output) and asynchronous transmission. The SU-C700 converts analogue signals to high-precision 192-kHz/24-bit PCM signals using the A/D converter. The full-digital system achieves high-purity reproduction from any content.
High-speed Silent Linear Power Supply
Using a large-current Schottky-barrier diode, a rectifier circuit with electrolytic capacitors, and a stabilised power supply circuit, the SU-C700 ensures ample power supply at all times, even when dynamic music demands high current.
High Rigidity Metal Double Chassis
To reduce vibration and noise that degrade the purity of sound, the Premium Series features a High Rigidity Metal Double Chassis, using inner and outer steel plates.
