Product Features

Super Audio CD and MQA, also USB-B Input is Newly Supported

Super Audio CD and MQA, Also USB-B Input is Newly Supported
The SL-G700M2 supports playback of Super Audio CD, which is a high-quality audio disc format. For further sound quality enhancement, a "Pure Disc Playback" mode, dedicated for Super Audio CD/CD playback. This model also supports MQA and is capable of full decoding playback of MQA files and MQA-CDs. Various other high-resolution formats are also supported, including WAV/AIFF, FLAC/ALAC, and DSD file playback.

The SL-G700M2 is also equipped with a new USB-B port that allows constant connection to a network audio server or PC for playback of high-resolution sound sources from the connected device.

Supports a Wide Variety of Music Sources and High Connectivity

Supports a Wide Variety of Music Sources and High Connectivity
The SL-G700M2 supports Chromecast built-in™, which enables a wide range of music streaming services from Google Chromecast-enabled apps, as well as AirPlay 2. Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® wireless connections are also supported.*
*A Google Voice-activated Speaker must be included in the same network.
Compatible music streaming services will be supported sequentially through firmware updates.

Network services are provided and managed by external vendors, and may be terminated temporarily or permanently without warning. Not all content may be available in your home country.

Registration/subscription may be required. Fees may apply.

High Precision Coherent D/A Converter

High Precision Coherent D/A Converter
The SL-G700M2 features High Precision Coherent D/A Converter, a sophisticated technology that digitally converts data into precise analog signals that can be amplified.

Composed of (1) coherent processing, (2) high-performance D/A converter in dual monaural configuration, and (3) a proprietary discrete amplifier circuit.

The dual ESS ES9026PRO is newly adopted for the DAC chip. The symmetrical placement of one L/R unit on each side and their independent transmission structures reduce mutual interference and faithfully reproduce the sound image and musical space contained in the sound source.

The filter circuit after the D/A conversion uses an amplifier circuit with a unique discrete configuration instead of an operational amplifier IC. This realises even higher responsiveness and S/N and reproduces even the most subtle sounds.

Coherent Processing Technology

Coherent Processing Technology
Technics' new proprietary coherent processing technology improves the reproducibility of impulse signals by minimising amplitude and phase deviations that occur throughout the D/A conversion process for signals up to 192 kHz PCM using proprietary digital signal processing*. With this processing, purity of the sound is increased, and the sound image is clearer.

*DSD signals such as Super Audio CD are input directly to the DAC without performing this processing.

Multi-Stage Silent Power Supply

Multi-Stage Silent Power Supply
Digital audio players that handle small signals require thorough noise suppression because even the slightest noise can significantly affect sound quality. The Multi-Stage Silent Power Supply provides thorough noise suppression in three stages: (1) High-speed switching power supply, (2) low-noise regulator, and (3) current injection active noise cancelling.

The SL-G700M2 uses a high-speed switching power supply of approximately 300 kHz, which is also used for the analogue circuits of the SU-R1000 reference-class integrated amplifier. By increasing the switching frequency, the interference of noise on the music playback bandwidth is reduced and a highly responsive power supply is achieved.

The low-noise regulator also provides low noise at high level and stable power supply are realised with the fine tuning of circuit patterns.

Current Injection Active Noise Canceling

Current Injection Active Noise Canceling

Current injection active noise canceling utilises newly developed technology to reduce unwanted noise components by injecting inverse phase current. Greater efficiency is achieved when combined with conventional noise rejection via push/pull current drawing.
