Technics SB-G90M2 / SB-C600 & SU-G700M2: new speakers & amplifiers

Hard-working, hard-working: two new ones speaker, a new Integrated amplifier as well as a new color variant of the proven SL-1200G-Turntable provides the traditional Japanese supplier Technics before. All solutions come up with interesting, independent solutions. Let’s take a closer look:

Floorstanding speaker Technics SB-G90M2

The Technics SB-G90M2 floorstanding speakers are only available in high-gloss black

The mid-high range is responsible for this handsome three-way model from the “Grand Class Series” by Technics Coaxial system, which is made up of a 25 mm dome tweeter and a 160 mm aluminum cone. The bass range is processed by two six-inch monitors for each loudspeaker.

Compared to the previous model (cf. Test Technics SB-G90) should be an optimized Structure and shape of the coax system ensure even less susceptibility to resonance and distortion. Even supposed little things like the central one Phase plug were further investigated and refined, which not least contributes to an even higher phase coherence in the SB-G90M2, says Technics. With regard to the connection terminal, Technics is taking a different path than many other manufacturers are currently taking, which is more from bi-wiring to single wiring awayequips: So the new Technics SB-G90M2 are now open to the Bi-wiring respectively Bi-amping operation.

The changes to the housing of the floorstanding loudspeaker are probably more decisive: there is now a base in its base multiply folded waveguide, which compensates for the possible omission of insulating material in the rest of the housing, which should benefit an even more jumpy dynamic behavior. And of course: also the principle of double baffle – one of the highlights of the “old” SB-G90 – has been expanded. And indeed in the physical sense, the second baffle now runs all the way down to the base plate. This makes it possible to fix the drivers mechanically at the point where the main point of application of the forces generated by the oscillating drivers is. In this way, one approaches the ideal of an accurate piston movement of the diaphragms, according to Technics.

The Technics SB-G90M2E-K in high-gloss black can be removed October 2021 try it out in specialist shops and for 4,598 euros take along.

Compact speaker Technics SB-C600E-K

The compact Technics SB-C600E-K also come with a coax driver and double baffle

Small loudspeaker, great tradition: it all began at Technics in 1965 with a compact loudspeaker. Accordingly, the Technics SB-C600E-K, designed as a two-way device, plays a special role in the portfolio. And so it comes as no surprise that the SB-C600 can keep up with its big sister when it comes to the keywords coaxial driver, second baffle, linear phase plug and rigid housing construction. Because of that vibration-resistant construction as well as after front breathing bass reflex tube the Technics SB-C600E-K should also be found in less high-fidelity-optimized shelves installation close to the wall feel good, as product manager Frank Balzuweit explained during the online product presentation. In the Technics SB-C 700At the end of 2017 in the test at fairaudio, the decision was made to use a rear-radiating bass reflex tube.

The bookshelf speakers Technics SB-C600E-K are available in matt black November 2021 at the start and with 1,998 euros labeled.

Integrated amplifier Technics SU-G700M2

In addition to silver (see lead picture above), the Technics SU-G700M2 is also available in black

The new Technics SU-G700M2 integrated amplifier can also refer to a renowned predecessor, the SU-G700 was able to look forward to the fairaudio’s favorite award four years ago. The SU-G700M2 now takes some additional technical borrowings from the flagship model Technics SU-R1000. It’s only logical that well-known features such as the JENO Engine (Jitter Elimination and Noise-Shaping Optimization) and LAPD (Load Adaptive Phase Calibration) technology are back on board. It was further refined on more pulse stable power supply, on the phono part (MM / MC with Phase switch) as well as on the materials of the input selector and level control solid aluminum. In terms of sound, the spatial localization sharpness in particular has been deliberately fine-tuned by the developers.

The Technics SU-G700M2E-K can be lowered October 2021 for 2,299 euros Take it to your home rack, with a choice of silver and black (brushed aluminum).

Turntable Technics SL-1210G

Like its brother SL-1200G, the Technics SL-1210G is a direct drive

The new Technics SL-1210G, on the other hand, is a good old acquaintance through and through, if you will: As black version of the popular direct drive turntable SL-1200G he presents the tried and tested technical features in an elegant dark look.

The Technics SL-1210GEG-K turns off October 2021 his rounds in the specialized trade and is with 3,999 euros declared.
