Experience premium, authentic audio with Technics' C50 Ottava S micro hi-fi system. It's finely calibrated to deliver superb sound throughout the whole room, and features a host of streaming services like Airplay, Spotify and Chromecast built-in, as well as Bluetooth connectivity, and internet radio. The Ottava S's 7-speaker array with four JENO Engines and Emotive Acoustic Technology create an exceptional quality and wide soundstage.
Rich, full-bodied sound with JENO Engines
Technics’ state-of-the-art JENO (Jitter Elimination and Noise-Shaping Optimisation) Engines ensure your music is distortion-free. LAPC (Load Adaptive Phase Calibration) ensures perfect audio alignment with the loudspeakers. Technics' 'Space Tune' tech ensures the best possible sound depending on where it's positioned in your home. It all combines to let this system reproduce the natural and delicate nuances of your music.
Seamless wireless connectivity
With built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capability, you can link up your smart phone or tablet and play tracks from such apps as Spotify, TIDAL, Apple Music or YouTube (some service may require subscription). It's also Apple AirPlay compatible, so your iOS device connects wirelessly to play your own Apple music library. And with Chromecast built-in you can connect to other compatible multiroom speakers, or operate with voice control via a Google Assistant-enabled speaker on the same network.
Versatile USB & wired connectivity
Play music files including FLAC, WAV and MP3 from the USB port. The ethernet port gives you easy and reliable internet connection, and you can listen via headphone port.
A world of internet radio
The Ottava S features internet radio to tune into music from the UK and around the globe.
Emotive Acoustic Technology
Three tweeters, three midrange speakers, and one subwoofer deliver 100W of audio power, while its 'directivity control horn' creates a wide sound stage that fills the room.
Elegant arc design
It combines practical functionality with elegant but compact design. The thick aluminium top panel includes an OLED display and ring keys for easy operation, while the arc form of the speaker array accentuates sound dispersal.
