Knows the Ins and Outs of Digital: Technics Streaming SACD/CD Player
Features Dual-Mono Construction, Flagship DAC and Five-Section Power
The Japanese-made Technics SL-G700 streaming SACD/CD player knows all
the ins and outs of digital – be it in the form of a physical disc or,
via USB-A or LAN, a high-resolution file or network stream up to
32-bit/384kHz PCM, DSD 11.2MHz, and MQA – and plays it back in arresting
fidelity. Afforded the company's prestigious Grand Class designation
and a seamless aesthetic match with the SU-G700 integrated amplifier,
SL-G700 arrives built to exceedingly high standards, loaded with
cutting-edge technology, tuned by Technics experts, and painstakingly
engineered to ensure every single part and section operates at an
optimum level. Rooted in traditional audiophile values, it addresses
modern conveniences and connectivity to take care of all needs in an
authoritative, comprehensive manner.
Featuring dual-mono construction and an asymmetrical layout for the
DAC circuitry, the gorgeous 26.9-pound SL-G700 touts a flagship
Asahi-Kasei AK4497 DAC and an accompanying power supply separated into
five sections – architecture that, in tandem with an original
battery-driven circuit system for the clock, ensures the elimination of
left/right channel interference and immersive spatiality, detail, and
imaging during playback. Equally important to SL-G700's premium
performance is a discrete amp module with a folded cascade, low-noise
transistors. Thin-film resistors accounts= for highly linear
responsiveness and the reproduction of even the smallest aural nuances.
And that's just the beginning of what makes SL-G700 tick.
Take, for instance, the dedicated power supply unit for the analog
output that suppresses switching frequency fluctuation. Combined with
the original stabilized power supply circuit, it provides stable power
and near dead-quiet silence. Free of any general-purpose ICs, the
discrete circuit structure results in an extremely high S/N ratio
(121dB) and superb transparency – hallmarks of Technics design. Then
consider the USB input terminals, wherein the amplifier includes power
conditioners using non-magnetic carbon film resistors with strong
protection against magnetic distortion – as well as ruby-mica capacitors
for low dielectric loss, high voltage resistance, and temperature
SL-G700's high-rigidity disc mechanism proves equally impressive by
way of a triple-chassis structure (outer chassis, inner chassis, drive
base) to guard against the slightest vibration and ensure surgical
accuracy. For added measure, the die-cast aluminum disc tray touts a
separate damping device. As for the assembly of SL-G700 itself:
Four-section construction with partitions installed between the circuit
blocks according to the signal level handled and circuit type to
eliminate interference between circuit blocks and preserve utmost
clarity. Oh, and front panel is comprised of a 7mm-thick aluminum plate.
Last but not least, each of the four resonance-defeating feet
supporting SL-G700 gets enhanced with internal ribs and a 4mm-thick iron
plate for boosted weight and strength.
While the 3.875 x 16.925 x 16.025-inch (HWD) SL-G700 serves as a
world-class SACD/CD player and streamer, it also offers you another
bonus in the guise of functioning as a prime headphone amplifier. To
wit, it possesses a dedicated DAC for headphones totally independent
from that of the analog output – allowing both outputs to supply
breathtaking sound. The circuitry itself incorporates Technics' original
sound-processing LSI, the JENO Engine (Jitter Elimination and
Noise-shaping Optimization). Furthermore, SL-G700 boasts an operation
system that automatically turns on the JENO Engine when you connect
headphones – defeating any possible adverse effect of the analog output
on sound quality when headphones are not employed. Plus, the Class AA
headphone amp utilizes separate amp circuits for the audio signal
voltage amplification and current amplification, ultimately enabling
high-precision conversion of the high-resolution PWM signal output from
the JENO Engine.
Factor in an Optimally Activated Circuit System that permits the
operation of various digital modules to stop (further decreasing noise)
and Pure Disc Playback Mode )which shuts off the network circuitry for
peak SACD and CD playback), and SL-G700 touts a range of audiophile tech
and features that compete with those of any peer. Compatibility with
Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Google Chromecast, and Apple AirPlay 2, a remote
control, three-year manufacturer warranty, and our 100% Music Direct
Guarantee round out a digital workhorse that you'll cherish for years
and years and years.
"If you're looking to buy a high-quality digital source that covers all bases, the Technics SL-G700 is a brilliant option."
– What Hi-Fi?, five-star review
"It is without a doubt one of the finer sounding CD
players I can recall ever listening to, which puts it in a peer group
with brands like Mark Levinson, Meridian, and even Linn. The fact that
the SL-G700 is also a capable music streamer makes it an even more
compelling proposition indeed, for I found its playback of TIDAL Master
quality recordings to be as exemplary as its CD playback."
– Andrew Robinson, Home Theater Review
"Pretty much an unalloyed success, I'd say. Given its
brief – to be a do-it-all design that plays as many file formats as
you one reasonably can in 2020 – the Technics SL-G700 scores highly.
It sounds clean and detailed yet surprisingly engaging too and is very
well built – being closer to ‘baby high end' than ‘jazzed-up budget'
– David Price, Stereonet, Applause Award
"The sound it produces will appeal those who are looking
for depth of tone and whose tastes don't stray too far into the murky
waters of complex rhythmic interplay. This Technics is a fully-featured
and classy piece of hardware for the money that's likely to prove
consistently reliable in the long term, and if you enjoy SACD, it's a
package that's hard to match."
– Jason Kennedy, Hi-Fi+
"Independently of MQA, the Technics sounds extremely
accurate and resolves very finely with CD and SACD as well as when
streaming, seemingly placing the musical picture under a magnifying
glass. At the same time, the Technics also plays very spirited, with
powerful bass and vivid spatial imaging. So: Great sound, great
workmanship and trend-setting technology – everything in high
– Ulrich Wienforth, Stereo Magazine
"The Technics is the better-built machine and sounds it,
plus it does ‘native' DSD and MQA, which may or may not be important to a
– Andrew Quint, The Absolute Sound
"It may be a jack-of-all-trades, but is not a master of
none – thanks to clever audiophile tweakery and battleship build, it
sounds seriously good for its price."
– Stereonet, 2020 Product of the Year Award
