Technics’ new Grand Class SU-GX70 is a universal streaming amp with a wealth of source functions including video connectivity.

Technics seems as pleased as punch with its new streaming amplifier. The first Technics product to feature an HDMI ARC port allowing for easy integration between a 2-channel hi-fi system and a television panel, the SU-GX70 provides high sound quality from your TV without the hassle and expense of a complex multichannel system.

The SU-GX70 provides high sound quality via the HDMI/ARC connection by using Panasonic’s comprehensive experience of video system treatment, allowing the full potential of the noise and distortion-free sound generated by Technics’ proprietary full-digital amplification technology based on the JENO engine.

The new Twin Power Supply in the SU-GX70 also helps to deliver a high signal-to-noise ratio for superb, detailed sound. The Clean Power Clock Generator technology, taken from Technics’ Reference Class components, enables an ultimately stable clock signal for high-precision digital signal processing.

The SU-GX70 comes with a wealth of functionalities. Based on the Google Chromecast platform, it allows the use of streaming services such as Spotify, TIDAL, Deezer, Qobuz and Amazon Music. It also supports MQA. For wireless network communication, Wi-Fi, Airplay2 and Bluetooth are on board. And there are two Line inputs, three digital inputs as well as USB-A and B support connectivity to a wide range of source components.

The SU-GX70 also supports internet radio as well as FM and DAB+ radio. Last but not least, it provides a high-grade, low-noise phono EQ and allows to hook up a turntable with an MM pickup cartridge for a genuine audiophile performance.

The SU-GX70 comes in a beautifully elegant, minimalist design in both silver and black, and will be available from authorised Technics dealers from June 2023 and sports an RRP of $3699.

And of course, Witchdoctor will be in the thick of it giving the SU-GX70 a thorough workout as soon as it passes through border control.
