The premium audio component is designed for high-end sound reproduction.
Panasonic's Technics brand has announced its latest audio product. The Grand Class SU-G700 Stereo Integrated Amplifier incorporates the JENO Engine (Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimization), LAPC (Load Adaptive Phase Calibration), and reference-class audio technology.
The amplifier features a High-Rigidity Metal Double Chassis with a steel-plate inner chassis and a steel-plate outer chassis to help reduce vibration and noise. Likewise, the device uses a three-section construction with partitions installed between the circuit blocks according to the signal level handled, eliminating interference between circuit blocks for clear sound quality. In addition, the power amp section uses full digital amplification including a JENO Engine for natural and finely detailed audio.
