Beautiful design and sound. Clean sound with little bass. The two easy-to-use apps to download. Top seller fast and accurate delivery.
Unpack, connect and enjoy. That’s the motto here! Everyone can read the technical details from the description or the Internet, so I won’t say anything about it. Visually, the speaker is simple and elegant. I’d guess he fits in pretty much everywhere. It is connected to the power grid quickly and easily. The connection was just as quick and easy to establish. There were no problems via Bluetooth (with us Android device). Listening to your favorite music on the SC-C30 is a real pleasure. Even at full volume, nothing distorts and the sounds and sounds remain straight. There is no buzzing about what has happened in other price segments at full volume. I am completely convinced, although I have been enthusiastic about Technics products before .
In my childhood, I was spoiled with very good sound, which was not common in the Eastern Bloc in the 70s and 80s. I rarely listened to music at an adult age, because listening to mediocre loudspeakers was more of a pain for me and I couldn’t afford good ones. Thanks to Amazon’s installment payment, I was able to buy this sound miracle and listen to music without my ears on strike 😉 Plus – Chromecast is integrated and you can stream movies and music. You can tell the delay when you watch movies via Bluetooth. Bluetooth is also prone to malfunction. That’s why it’s better to use Chromecast. When the device is not in use, it turns off.
Appearance: Characterized by the elegant fibreglass body, the top stands out with brushed aluminium, in which the display is integrated. The back is not only a design factor due to the ribbed design, it also serves for better heat dissipation, which already has its legitimate function! The model is available in a light or dark version. Cutting-edge electronics combined in a compact form factor finally dissolves antiquated ideas of classic speaker formations. OPERATION: The model can be operated comfortably via the app or by means of the keypads embedded in the aluminium top. CONNECTIVITY: The SC-C30 can receive over LAN or Wi-Fi, with Chromecast providing the most important music streaming services, notably Deezer, TIDAL and Spotify. The system can be easily expanded into a multiroom system using the Google Home app. This works really fabulous. I was also allowed to test the larger model as part of the Vine program and was able to try out the functionality “Multiroom” very well. Reproducing music simultaneously in different rooms is the purpose of such an expansion stage. Especially in the cozy home, this function is great, because you can seamlessly listen to music from room to room without having to overly adjust the volume. Bluetooth and other ports are a matter of course: a digital input (TosLink), USB and Ethernet as well as a slightly dusty, but still sought-after analog 3.5mm jack input. Outputs have consequently been dispensed with, which would also make little sense. In principle, however, I always recommend LAN to connect to the domestic network in the interests of a more stable and trouble-free operation. If you don’t want to pull stripping, you can also use Wi-Fi. Access to your own NAS (almost standard for music storage and delivery) or other intra-network players is also possible. SOUND QUALITY: Of course, you can expect a balanced and full sound with a speaker system in this price league. However, due to the compact design of the model, I did not expect such a high-class result. In really all volume ranges, the Technics convinces with captivating sound, great dynamics and warm and fine-resolution sound. Without effort, the system can be operated in volume areas that are hardly practical. Only at the upper end of the scale does the LS lose momentum. At this point, the SC-C30 is not inferior to the larger model. For rooms not quite as large, the SC-C30 can also be used as a standalone machine. The sound system is distributed very well throughout the room. The Technics SC-C30 is a top tip for all hi-fi purists who set the highest standards in music playback and product quality. MY CONCLUSION: Although my assessment is based on my personal impressions and lacks references to the profound technical details, I have to leave this field to the profit testers. My conclusion, however, is clear: a state-of-the-art expandable hi-fi system that convinces in its entirety with its well thought-out and user-friendly operation, as well as its incredibly dynamic and sound quality. These devices can definitely replace the classic hi-fi systems from the past millennium with considerable added value!!
Anyone who would have told me 4-5 years ago that I could tune my multiroom speaker outside of a Sonos system to the individual cross-section of my apartment by means of standalone calibration via smartphone, I would have personally laughed loudly in the face. The future begins right now. However, the realities caught up with the Technics SC-C30 in 2021 and despite a fairly wide range of own sound systems in my household as well as regular tests on my blog, I have been amazed a bit over the last few weeks and also enthusiastic about the technology installed here in the SC-C30! A little note in advance! One more clue first. Technics has launched the C-30 model, a compact speaker designed for small and medium-sized rooms. Anyone who wants to “delight” larger rooms will probably be better served with the C-50 model. In terms of price, the two loudspeakers are about 200 euros apart. But let’s start with raw sound data published by technics The technical specifications of the SC-C30: Precise digital technology Jitter Elimination and Noise Shaping Optimization (Jeno) Engine (Load Adaptive Phase Calibration) Space Tune Signal processing Dual power supply design Expressive acoustic technology Acoustic lens Powerful architecture Front speaker output power (L/R): 15 W+15 W (1 kHz, T.H.D. 1.0%, 8 Ω, 20 kHz LPF) Subwoofer: 30 W + 140 W (100 Hz, T.H.D. 1.0%, 4 Ω, 20 kHz LPF) Speaker unit Woofer: 6.5cm Cone x 2 Tweeters: 1.6cm dome x 2 Subwoofer: 12cm Cone Analog input AUX IN x 1 (φ 3.5mm) Digital input Optical digital x 1, USB-A x 1 USB-A/Network playback support codec iPod/iPhone/iPad: No WAV/AIFF: Yes (32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192, 32.8) 384 kHz/16, 24, 32 bit) FLAC/ALAC: Yes (32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192, 352.8, 384 kHz/16, 24 bit) DSD: Yes (2.8 MHz, 5.6 MHz, 11.2 MHz) AAC: Yes (32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96 kHz/16-320 kbps) MP3: Yes 44.1, 48 kHz/16-320 kbps) Ethernet Interface LAN (100 Base-Tx/10 Base-T) WLAN IEEE 802.11 a/b /g/n/ac, 2.4 GHz/5 GHz band Integrated Chromecast Yes Compatible with Google Assistant Yes Multiroom capable Yes Stereo pairing Yes (compatible with the Technics Audio Center app) AirPlay 2 Yes Bluetooth (codec support) Yes (AAC, SBC) Spotify /TIDAL/DEEZER/Internet radio/Amazon Music 2.3 Yes Power supply AC 220-240 V, 50 Hz/60 Hz Power consumption 30 W Dimensions (W x H x D) 315 x 190 x 191 mm Weight Approx. 4.5 kg Accessories Power cord, user manual The setup of the SC-C30 and SC-C50 are analogous: (follow exactly this order, as otherwise it can be very difficult and time consuming to get the speaker up and running properly. 1. First, download the Technics Audio Center app and the google home app to your smartphone or tablet. 2. Launching the Technics Audio Center app to set up the speakers, now just select the C-30 speaker in the app. Then connect the speaker to the mains and choose either Wi-Fi setup or LAN setup in the app menu. I chose the Wi-Fi variant during my setup. Now turn on the speaker and click on the “Next” button in the app. The app may inform you about the already installed google Home app. Now start the google home app and click on the “+” sign in the top left corner and click Set up new devices. Select the home and press the “Next” button. Google will now search for new devices that have been turned on and will find the C 30 box that has been turned on. Then confirm with “Next” and wait for the beep in the box. After choosing whether or not Google is allowed to evaluate all data and statistics, you will be asked for the speaker’s location. Subsequently, the integration into domestic Wi-Fi takes place. The setup is now complete. Fine-tuning Here, the full setup equipment within the app is only available to iOS users. 3 After selecting the location (wall, free, corner), the “measurement” of the spatiality is made. 4. Subsequently, only the desired playback service, such as Google Play Music, Deezer, Spotify, etc.) 5. Sit back and enjoy. Here’s my manoeuvre criticism: The Technics Audio Center app is initially about as intuitive to use when setting up the speaker as controlling a Formula 1 racing car with just one hand and one foot on a triangular steering wheel. Setup took me about 2 hours, including updates (about 15 minutes) and proper setup as described above. Connectivity issues with Wi-Fi setup and unexecuted control commands are just two of the shortcomings detected here. With a top-class speaker, this should not happen and technics would be very well advised to radically revise the software! Sound check: As bad as the app itself is (not to mention Google’s complete privacy task), I’m so ingenious about the individually measured sound reproduction thanks to Space Tune through the speaker itself. Very precise highs, detailed and strong mids underpinned by a covered woofer do absolutely everything right here. Genre technically, the loudspeaker plays everything that goes before its shotgun! Whether hard rock, metal, pop, classical or jazz — everything I like is served here! Noise floor between tracks is misdisplayed due to Technics’ in-house noise reduction software. A sound stage that is set up and even at different angles to the speaker does not abate at any time! This is big tennis and really made an impression! Here I have to say, I’m absolutely impressed and this can probably only be surpassed by recording the fight with the app again and add another Technics speaker to the group and use it as a link/right grouping or just for thoughtful multirooming. The look and feel of the C-30 loudspeaker Here you get absolutely premium goods for the financial implementation of the processing. My opinion! The box weighs approx. 4.5 kg impressives with a modern design, without any frills. On the deck, which is finished with aluminium, the speaker can also be operated directly as an alternative to the app. All basic functions can therefore be easily controlled from here. On the back there is a LAN connection, an input for an optical cable, e.g. for operation on a domestic TV, an AUX input and a USB (5Volt) access. My conclusion: Rarely have I been as torn during a test as here. The built-in technique of the speaker is absolutely impressive. Load Adaptive Phase Calibration and Jitter Elimination and Noise-Shaping Optimization help the SC-C30 speaker with the built-in drivers to achieve extreme frequency and tonal presence that does not need to hide at all. The downside here is in the unuser-friendly app from Technics, which I think must have been created during a duke. If you were to fix it here, 5 stars would certainly come about. Thus, the speaker gets smooth 4, which is a shame said among us. I hope I was able to bring my personal impressions and experiences a little closer to you here when forming opinions!? In doubt, try it yourself, especially if you are not deterred by the unintuitive app! In this sense, Rock on!
As already described by big brother – I’m extremely surprised how powerful a single box can make radau and can sound damn good at the same time. The box looks great, is top processed and actually has all common analog and digital connectivity options. Although it is declared white, silver dominates, but that doesn’t bother me. Setup is very easy thanks to Technics video tutorial, and the app is also easy to set up. I also own, as I said, the big brother, whose implementation in our household worked just as easily – but only briefly by the way. The use of a single box as well as pairing can be a real listening experience if you set it up skillfully and also adjust the adjustment, that is, the adaptation to the premises, via Space Tune. Everything works intuitively after setup, even if the app can be improved as so often. But now to the sound. The “small” box is also a real monster with its 60W. In all volume ranges, crystal-clear sound, distributed and still with so much bumps on the road that I don’t need a separate subwoofer to have a massive and also dramatic listening experience. The maximum volume is slightly lower than the Technics SC-C50E-W, but that’s still enough thick to have fun. High-resolution sources are rendered in great quality even for nerds. It’s amazing what to get out of such a small box. Clear recommendation for friends of good sound who do not want to dig deep into the pocket, but at the same time disregard the minimum space consumption. For me currently the best compact solution and a sensible approach to the big one in a multiroom concept when the room is smaller.
► First impression/ Design/Processing Already when accepting the package I was surprised by the enormous weight of the Technics SC-C30E. The speaker weighs approximately 4.5 kilos. The weight is due to the very good workmanship and the materials used. The top is made of an aluminum plate, which has a beautiful structure depending on the incidence of light. In the middle there is a small display. It is bordered in a round disc and is strongly reminiscent of the amplifiers of the manufacturer Marantz. In general, the design of the Technics speaker is very stylish and timeless. The front speaker cover is made of white/grey fabric. Also, the back has a beautiful design element. It is almost entirely made of cream-colored slats. To sum it up in a few words: chic, timeless, high-quality. ► Setup I set up the speaker from the Technics app as recommended. Note that you also need to install the Google Home app to set up your device. Setting up on your own network via Wi-Fi via the app went without any problems. After integration, the first update was installed. This took about 5 minutes and went without any problems. If you do not have a smartphone, you can also connect the device to Wi-Fi by pressing a WPS button. ► Connections In addition to wireless playback options, the Technics speaker offers various other wired ways to play music. On the back of the device you will find a 3.5mm jack input, an optical input and a USB port. To this, for example, you can connect a USB stick with MP3s. My 16GB USB flash drive formatted in FAT32 was detected without any problems. Thanks to the optical input, it is also no problem to connect a CD player, for example. A prerequisite for the device also has an optical output. If you prefer to connect the speaker to the network via cable, you will also find a network connection on the back. ► Playback options The speaker offers the possibility to switch between playback options both via the app and directly on the keypad. More on the service later. Via the app you can directly access various Internet radio stations. You can also save your favourite stations as favourites. The favourites can be directly accessed via the controls on the speaker. The smartphone is not necessary for this. You can still access Deezer or Tidal content directly in the app. However, an account is required here. Spotify is also on board. But control is done directly from the Spotify app, and I use the speaker with Apple Music most of the time. Thanks to the integrated Apple Airplay 2, you can stream playback to the Technics speaker from almost any audio app. The operation is convenient via the app. It’s a pity that you can’t skip songs directly on the device. You can only pause and adjust the volume. Playing content on my Apple TV is also no problem. You can even forward audio playback to the Technics speaker during a movie. If you have two copies, you can even make a stereo pair. This setting can be found in the Technics app. In addition to AirPlay, there is Google’s Chromecast function. However, I did not test these. ► Control As already mentioned, control is completely possible via smartphone. Nevertheless, I would like to comment on the controls on the speaker, as they are processed at all the highest level and just look good in conjunction with the display. The round display has a total of six mechanical buttons. On the one hand, the volume can be changed using the “+” and “-” buttons. A source button is present. Opposite is the button to access the favorites. There is also a play/pause button and the on/off switch. On the back is a small hidden button to dim or completely turn off the display in two stages. The display shows the current source during playback. As soon as you change the volume, the corresponding volume bar is displayed. ► Sound quality The Technics speaker has a total of three drivers. These are all located on the front. On the left and right, there is a 2-way speaker with woofers and tweeters. In the middle is the subwoofer. The sound quality is very good. Compared to other Wi-Fi speakers, the Technics is at the front. The device sounds awesome to me without any additional settings. Especially when playing music, the Technics can score points. The app still has the option of adapting lows, mids and highs according to your needs. In addition, it is possible to distinguish between three installation options: directly on the wall, in a corner or free in the room. By selecting the lineup in the app, the sound characteristics are adjusted accordingly. If that is not enough, you can use your smartphone and the app to measure the speaker in the room. Just like you know it from an AVR, for example. I haven’t used the opportunity yet because I’m more than happy with the current settings. ► More features I would like to mention a few more noteworthy features. What I find very convenient is that you can turn the speaker off and even on via the app. In addition to a car standby, there is also a programmable sleep timer. Ideal for listening to an audiobook in bed and fall asleep with it. A classic alarm function can also be set via the app. Smart features such as Google Assistent or Siri are not on board. For this purpose, you are served with outstanding sound quality and best workmanship. From me there is a clear purchase recommendation and five stars.
I love the sound of this technics kit. Warm, not to much bass, it has a depth that previous speakers have not had. The app takes a few days get used to, is not as slick as a sonos, but, the sound from it more than makes up for it. Everything the sonos app does, so does this, but with a graphic equaliser and the ability to make old recordings sound like old recordings.
- A proper audiophile’s sound for a lot less money
Technics Sc-C30e-W Premium Wireless Compact Speaker System with Chromecast and Google Assistant Capability
Technics/Panasonic jumps on the multiroom train with all-in-one speakers late. When the market already seems saturated with the products of Sonos, Devil and Evil, this system will not be presented until 2018. Currently, the “Ottava” system consists of the compact system C70 with a built-in CD drive and the driveless smart speakers C50 and C30. A soundbar or even a suitable surround system is not on offer. Competitors are offering more here. The price requested clearly places the C30 in the premium segment. Accordingly, the material appearance is very high quality. The brooded aluminum in the lid and the entire finish make a high-quality impression. The minimalist design pleases, but does not really dare much new. The design is strongly oriented towards the competition. The controls and the small OLED display for the most important operating information fit seamlessly into the lid. For the switches that are annular around the display, I would have liked a slightly more precise pressure point. As far as the equipment is concerned, the Technics scores: In addition to the mandatory analog AUX input, Bluetooth, WLAN and LAN, there is even a USB A and optical digital input. On the software side, pick up the device via Air Play or Chromecast, TuneIn, Deezer, Tidal or Spotify. Fortunately, and this is really something not found in all competitors, there is a built-in D/A converter that can also process high-resolution signals via the LAN/WLAN, USB or optical input. The music library on the home NAS is also operated by a DLNA client. An exemplary flexibility that even allowed me to integrate the C30 into the existing multi-room network of the competition via Sonos Connect! The most important functions can be controlled on the device. The connection to the Google Assistant works smoothly, so that there is usually no need for an additional connection here. For full functionality, especially room correction), however, the free app is recommended. As usual, two devices can be paired to a stereo pair. In order to elicit bass power and a precise stereo image from the comparatively small housing, some effort is used. Compared to the large Brude C50, no seven chassis work in 3.1, but “only” 5 speakers driven by Class D amplifiers work in 2.1 configuration in a compact housing. Otherwise, the complex signal processing, Technics calls it JENO engine and LAPC, which is the same as in the larger model. In terms of sound, the Technics is very much in line with the other current multiroom systems: in the factory settings, an accentuated bass and a rather restrained midrange. After measuring either with the built-in microphone or with an iOS device, room characteristics are effectively corrected. The result is easy to understand on the app. The sound, but also the comparatively wide stereo image, is clearly gaining. The bass accent is effectively withdrawn. The sound gains traceability and precision. If that is not enough, you can fine-tune with the integrated 3-band equalizer. Surprisingly, the sound is not so different from the bigger brother C50, which is probably due to the fact that both have the same 12cm woofer. At best in the last cellar octave, the C50 has a small advantage. Stereo positioning is also slightly better thanks to the additional center speaker in the C50. On the whole, however, the C30 offers a balanced sound that can be adjusted to your personal preferences and room conditions. Even higher volumes to moderate party volume, the C30 can handle effortlessly. With all the praise, there is only one small thing left to criticize. Thus, there is no possibility to wake the device from standby by means of a signal on one of the external inputs. If you use an external player, as in my case, the technics must be activated either via the app or directly on the device. This is somewhat impractical if it is not within range, for example, on a shelf. All in all, the smart speaker is recommended with its extensive equipment, connectivity and powerful sound!
This product was provided to me free by Amazon. Therefore, I will not include the product price in the evaluation. Since this review is going to be a little longer, I would like to reveal my conclusion for the box right here. To put it in one sentence, the possibilities of playing music and its sound out of the box is really top notch, but the setup and operation through the app is more just middle class. That’s why, despite the very good connectivity and insanely good sound, I was only able to award four stars (more on this will follow later). In my assessment, I will focus on setting up and getting started, connectivity and the special features of the box. The other points (such as the sound of the individual speakers or the technical refinement of the individual components) are happy to leave to the sound virtuosos and experts who, unlike me, can also listen to the smallest things in terms of the quality of sound or technology and interpret them much better. Getting started and set up: Setting up the box (connecting to the home Wi-Fi) and the first steps were very awkful for me overall. Since I only use Android devices, I was forced to use the Google Home app to include the box in my home Wi-Fi (and there is no other way on Android either). The first attempt went wrong. Everything was fine until the box had to install its first update. After that, the installation got stuck and everything had to be reset to factory settings (except, of course, the installed update), otherwise, unfortunately, there was no way to complete the installation (on the second attempt everything worked fine). The first steps with the box were just as awksy. In order to set everything you have to install the Technics Audio Center app, which only works after connecting the box to your own (Wi-Fi) network. From here, of course, it is very convenient to manage from which source (see the section Connectivity below) the sound should now be restored and, above all, what is even more important, how it should sound. Connectivity: This box allows you to play music directly via LAN, AUX, Bluetooth, optical cable or USB. Furthermore, you can also use the built-in Chromecast or Airplay function to play music and since this is not enough, the box also supports podcasts, music streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer or Tidal. This should cover pretty much all the possibilities to play music or sound (from movies, TV or home cinema equipment) at all. This, of course, is the absolute insanity and should leave nothing to be desired here. Unfortunately, I had tremendous problems playing music as soon as it came from my computer and not from the smartphone. A BT 5.0 adapter is used here, which is plugged into the back of the PC (i.e. no optimal location for sending signals). Still, I managed to supply other Bluetooth devices with music without any problems and the sound signal arrives at the box, but it jerks and creaks every few seconds (as if the connection would constantly break off). Fortunately, I’m not going to use the box on my computer. Special features: The feature that stands out most here is the ability of the box to adapt itself to the room (Space Tune function). Here, a number of test sounds are produced by the box and their thrown back sound is interpreted by the microphone. This way you automatically get the best sound for the current location of the box without setting this complex. Furthermore, the optionality/compulsion to connect the box to your own WLAN (or LAN) is of course a great way to keep the internal software (which ultimately decides on the quality of the sound) constantly up to date. I don’t want to talk about the many connectivity options here again. Anyone who has two (or more) of these boxes (or others from the same model series) also has the possibility to combine them into a group and thus transfer the sound to the other box from a source (for example, the TV or music system) connected to a box (the whole thing snops himself with the manufacturer stereo pairing). All in all, this is a really ingenious box with an insane range of connectivity options. The only thing that is disturbing the overall picture is the procedure when setting the box for the first time. Also, the problem with using the PC (via Bluetooth) as an audio source, I also tend to recall an operator error (by myself) (since playback from the smartphone worked without problems).
I was already allowed to test the larger speaker from Technics and I liked it a lot. So I was curious what the smaller model SC-C30E-W can do. Unpacking: The package is 1.5 kg lighter than the big brother at 6 kg. The packaging is also intricately printed here, with all the possibilities that this speaker system offers. A picture with the components that are inside is also printed. The speaker is well packaged and includes a user manual and two power plugs. Once for the European area and one for the United States. The first impression: the system has a unique and at the same time modern look. The front in a beautiful white and the back in a gray, with ribs for cooling. Both sides are “curved” and not so typically angular, which may provide sound at a larger angle. The underside stands on sturdy plastic feet. The top is made of brushed aluminum and has a small OLED display, edged with the most necessary buttons. The entire housing is also made of robust fiberglass. Commissioning and connectivity: On the back there is a USB-A port, an RJ45 network connection, an optical input and an AUX input. This allows you to play music from a USB stick, access the music of a NAS or just classic via an optical cable or jack plug. The button can be used to dim the brightness on the display on the top. Here, of course, the wireless connection options Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are added. So first turned on and started the Technics app on the phone. To set up, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth must be turned on. It is also necessary to install the Google Home app. The configuration via the app is self-explanatory and simple. It is possible to assign the speaker system to a landscaped building and room, so you can see exactly which speaker is in which room. After the connection was established, an update installed itself and the system was ready for use. Features and test: The Ottava S speaker system has an integrated Internet radio. Playback via Spotify, Deezer, TIDAL, Airplay and Chromecast. Our living room has about 18 m² and I put the speaker in the corner this time to make a good comparison. Thanks to the built-in microphone and the Space Tune function, the system automatically determines the best setting for the respective room. This function is just great! So again a song about Spotify and the result, just as sonorous as the SC-C50 model! The sound is so clean and clear. The basses are powerful and impressive. Even at full volume, you just have a very nice clean sound. Our living room is also not big enough for the smaller model to be able to turn it up. Now I had the opportunity to pair both speaker systems as a stereo pair. I’m overwhelmed by the sound experience and the “collaboration” of the speakers. It’s kind of like the HD TVs came on the market as 4K, so you figured the picture was already razor sharp, how better? So it was for me with the speakers, the sound of my old speakers was good, what is going to get better there? You just have to have heard it yourself and then you don’t want anything else! Conclusion: I fell in love with these speaker systems! It’s even more fun to listen to music or watch movies with such a great sound. I really can not say anything negative about this product. I’m just thrilled! The price, of course, is proud, but in my opinion, the Technics SC-C30 speaker system is also worth the money!
For this price you get a very good package. You can set up the loudspeaker/smart speaker from different sources. I used the Google Home app. Among other things, the C30 has installed Chromecast audio, supports Airplay 2/Bluetooth, Internet radio and USB, and network playback (AUX and Optical connectivity are also available). Stereo pairing, as well as multiroom playback is also possible. The Google Assistant and the Technics Audio app make control easier if you don’t just want to use the control center on the C30 itself. However, this is usually enough, the app is not always optimal, because it often leads to errors or long loading times. Well. let’s get to the sound: The sound image is astonishingly spatial or extensive, I am very satisfied and somewhat surprised how LOUD this speaker can be. I have mostly used the volume 5-8 (maximum up to 100!) and that was quite enough. Even for outdoor operation, it can get very noisy. The quieter you turn it down, the duller the sound will be, but only if you are close to the speaker. Of course, the position plays a big role in this: there are different modes for the speaker to switch its sound image, for example, “in the corner” or “in free space”. The C30 has a microphone that can “measure” the environment via the app (Space Tune) and thus find the best setting. With me, he’s relatively centered in the corner of the room. I tested Chromecast audio (CA) for the first time with this device. Tidal is not yet integrated into Google Home, but you can easily select the speaker as the source in the Tidal app itself. CA provides lossless playback over Wi-Fi or LAN. A great advantage in addition to sound quality: you can play music via the C30 and simultaneously play audio on a device (e.g. smartphone/tablet). Because Tidals master titles are MQA files, you have to do without them, because Google CA can’t decode MQA files (you can handle this to my knowledge with Audirvana). That’s why I was able to test “only” hi-fi titles with Tidal. The sound is very good, as I said; if quieter (below 4), then not so great. I find the design very appealing and the control center with screen also quite convenient. The buttons allow you to adjust the volume, change the sources, save favorites, etc. Unfortunately, everything is registered with a delay in the Technics Audio Center app, and everything is also delayed when Chromecast playback in the Tidal app. In iOS 14, CA doesn’t seem to be really optimized yet. Whether this will work better on an Android device, I can’t tell. Internet radio also works very well (e.g. via the Technics app), but I’m kind of missing a CD player in this overall package. Of course, this would be unusual for some kind of smart speaker, but it would be a great fit for it. I highly recommend the C30 if you are ready to do without cheaper speakers or smart speakers (such as the HomePod Mini) and instead is interested in a HiFi All-in-One package with Chromecast Audio that can get very loud.
I write the conclusion first, because the speaker is a force: -> The design is chic and minimalist. The materials used are of high quality. -> The OLED display with the operating ring is great. Haptic 1A -> The speaker is versatile. Multimedia is super covered and the various ports on the back are second to none. -> An incredible number of settings are possible with the app. -> He convinces me with his outstanding sound in a compact size that can be placed anywhere and he is definitely a top-class speaker for me. Weighing over four kg, it stands stably on its four feet. To use the speaker, you need the Technics Audio Center app, which guides you through setup. When connecting, you can choose between LAN or WLAN. With the Google Home app, the speaker is integrated into the network. You can then fine-tune the speaker and adjust the speaker perfectly at the installation location. With iOS, it can even be measured, which is not possible with Android. Here the selection is done manually. When everything is set up, the Chromecast speaker can be used for all relevant Internet services, and one device makes it very easy to access different music sources. Direct streaming from the network gives you optimum sound quality, and the audio app also allows you to adjust the sound to your own needs. The speaker can also be paired via Bluetooth or you can use the ports on the back, where all other important ports such as LAN, USB, AUX and Optical are available in addition to the power connection. There is also a dimmer for LED lighting at the bottom. Up to nine settings can be stored on the speaker itself, which allows you to listen to music without an app. If a device on the same network has the Google Assistant, you can also control it by voice. The Audio app can be used to insert another C-30 for true stereo sound. The sound is excellent. A pure sound with a well-balanced bass. Even at high volume, he makes a mood. Already with a box you are already well equipped in a 30 m² room, I think. True stereo sound can only be achieved with a second speaker. I can not note any disadvantages to me with this excellent speaker with its many functions, and I also find the size and visual appearance optimal, no matter what room it is in. I deserve him five stars and a clear purchase recommendation.
The Technics SC-C30 is a wireless, multi-room-enabled premium speaker that offers a wide range of connectivity options and can play music from services such as Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Music, Tidal, and many more. First impression: With its dimensions of approx. 315x190x191 mm, the Technics SC-C30 has a fairly decent weight of 4.5 kg and looks visually very high-quality. I particularly like the matte stainless steel finish of the top, with the round, recessed OLED display. It has a timeless design and looks very noble. It can be placed freely in the room, as well as on the wall or in the corner. For the respective installation, it is possible to have the loudspeaker automatically measured and adjusted by means of a single measurement program. Connectivity: The Technics SC-C30 speaker features wireless WiFi/Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz), Bluetooth and a wide range of wired connectivity options at the back. In addition to a LAN port, the SC-C30 has an auxiliary input (3.5mm jack plug), an optical input (Toslink), as well as a USB input via which music can be played via a USB stick. In addition to support Apple Airplay (Apple Airplay 2), Chromecast and Google Assistant, the SC-C30 is able to play music via Internet radio, as well as services such as Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, Amazon Music, etc. The possibilities here are really diverse and, in my opinion, leave nothing to be desired. Here everyone should find the right service to play music. Speakers/technology: The Technics SC-C30 has a total of 2 woofers, 2 tweeters (15W+15W), as well as a 12cm subwoofer (30W + 140W) powered by a fully digital amplifier. The power consumption is 30 watts. The Technics SC-C30 is equipped with sound-optimising processors, which are designed to guarantee an optimal sound image compared to the installed speakers and the installation location of the device. In addition to the option of operating the speaker individually, it is also possible to connect it to another speaker in stereo mode or to other speakers than multiroom. Start-up: After downloading the Technics Audio-Center app from the Google Playstore, you can connect the speaker to the Internet via Wifi. Alternatively, this can also be done via the LAN interface. This worked completely without problems. Via the app, the speaker can then be measured using a space tune, which is designed to guarantee the best possible sound depending on the installation location (free-standing, wall, corner are available). The measurement also works completely without any problems and was done in no time. Technics Audio-Center App: The Technics Audio-Center app can be downloaded for Android via the Playstore, as well as for Apple via the App Store and can be installed on applicable endpoints. Setting up or signing in to the new speaker is self-explanatory and, in my case, if not done before, also required the installation of the Google Home app. If, as already mentioned, you still want to measure it with the app using space tune, this can also be done quickly and easily. In my case, I chose the installation on the wall (wall, corner, free standing are available) and have the speaker automatically measured. The speaker emits sound signals during measurement, which are reflected from the walls in the area and measured in the app. This guarantees that the loudspeaker always sounds optimally according to the spatial conditions. The app also has the option to individually adjust the sound of the speaker via appropriate levels (highs, mids, lows). I then played music on the app’s Internet radio. The Internet radio is quite clear and you can search for channels here as you like. Everything is clearly divided into categories and you can also search for stations. I like that very much because I like to listen to Internet radio regularly. In addition, you can play music through services such as Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, Amazon Music, Chromecast, Apple Airplay (2), etc., so that everyone really has the opportunity to listen to their favorite music. Sound: After the measurement, the first audio sample took place. Since I already owned some Bluetooth speakers and have already heard many from acquaintances and friends personally, I can classify the performance of the Technic SC-C30 relatively well. I chose Spotify as my playback and played the music I listen to every day in the car or at home. Partly very bass-heavy (dance) but also concert pieces such as “An der schönen blauen Donau”, where ideally the individual instruments can be heard crystal clear. To take it in advance, the sound is great! I would not have thought possible that such a compact speaker could play this large. The SC-C30 builds a large, spatial sound backdrop and plays the music crystal clear with a rich, coarse bass. Just like I like it. Many other speakers start to scratch or invade at a slightly higher volume, and then the listening pleasure suffers noticeably. Not with this one. The Technics SC-C30 sounds stable in all volumes and plays the music crystal clear. I had already guessed this when unpacking the speaker because of its weight, but I’m amazed that it is playing so big. class! Listening to your favourite music is really fun. You can’t and must not compare the sound of the SC-C30 with Bluetooth speakers, as you currently get them offered like sand by the sea for little money. These are just sky-wide differences. So far, none of the Bluetooth speakers I possessed or heard have been able to build such a strength and spatial sound backdrop. I am very impressed by the sound of the Technics SC-C30. Conclusion: The Technics SC-C30 speaker, measured by my personal experience, is the best wireless speaker of this size I’ve ever heard. The sound image convinces with crystal clear highs, balanced mids and a deep and hard bass that always remains level resistant even at higher volume. I am impressed with the performance of the Technics SC-C30 and can fully recommend it.
The evaluation of the Ottava was really hard for me. Pure Apple users are welcome to add a star to my rating, I’m from the “Android Alexa warehouse”.; -) The sound quality: this is very good for a speaker of this size. The volume is also enormous. This is true for both the C30 and the C50, although I would describe the sound of the C30 almost more balanced, the 50 has “more fumble” for it. Also the possibility to play really very high qualities via USB is excellent. I tested HighRes flac and DSD – works fine (on DSD, but the app fails due to graphics). But here comes the criticism. The speaker can only be set up via Google Home. For a number of additional functions and operation, you need the Technics app. If you want to play Amazon Music, you can only play it via the Amazon Music app and the Chromecast connection (i.e. no stream submission and no Alexa integration). So you’re at the start with three apps to use the speaker. Adjusting the volume by voice is tricky. There are 10 levels possible, which can be accessed via Google Home. This is fierce, because one step more can already call the neighbors on the plan. But you can also request the volume as a percentage, that works fine. The pure operation by voice is not possible, however, imho. So you always need either Home or the Technics app. A remote control would be great, but unfortunately it does not exist. I don’t understand the restriction on Google Home, I don’t really know anyone with Google Home. Maybe that’s different in Japan? At least I have Alexa and in my circle of acquaintances either nothing or Alexa. Conclusion: Super sound with a manageable size and a very good design. But too cumbersome to use and limited with Google Home. If Technics gets to take Alexa (or at least Amazon Music) on board, then there are definitely more stars in it. In total, unfortunately, it is only three stars.
The streaming loudspeaker comes with a familiar sound pattern. After space-tune, where room acoustics are measured (iOS smartphone or tablet required), sound improvement is exorbitant! @Technics Please enable playback from a Linn Kazoo server on the NAS.
- A proper audiophile’s sound for a lot less money
Technics Sc-C30e-W Premium Wireless Compact Speaker System with Chromecast and Google Assistant Capability
I had and have a number of loudspeakers/soundbars and surround systems in operation. In my view, the Technics system is surprisingly compact. The finish is really a bit, the speakers look really good. The commissioning was quite unusual for me, using Google Home. However, the whole thing went off quite easily and quickly. After that, I downloaded the Technics app – it allows you to make many more settings. The highlight was definitely the pairing of two speakers to a stereo pair. The result can really be seen – very clear, very clear sound. In addition, I found the highest level of connectivity, both streaming from home NAS, web radio, Spotify and everything possible with ChromeCast (including YouTube Music) are possible and make it really easy and enjoyable to use the speaker. When comparing, I like the white variant at the end a little bit better than the black one, but these are absolute subtleties. Conclusion: great sound, elegant design, excellent connectivity and in the end still stereo pairing or alternatively multiroom – 5/5.
I am satisfied with the sound and design of the Technics SC-C30. However, I ordered two pieces to connect them as a stereo pair. However, the SC-C30 completely fails in this discipline! Despite the latest device firmware (F/W ver. 1.01.10.00 from Nov. 2021) and the current accompanying app “Technics Audio Center” (v. 2.0.6, from 17.11.2021), it is not possible to run two SC-C30s stably as a stereo pair. They constantly lose connection to each other, dropouts occur until at some point the devices completely hang up and no sound is heard anymore. Solution: Pull the plug. But the abortions start all over again. Twofold factory reset did not bring success. Resetting the devices does not help. If you now switch to Aux, Chromecast mode and back to network play, the internal firmware hangs up. All very unstable and this despite the maximum WiFi strength (level 3), mesh WiFi 6 network in the apartment and the best WiFi quality in the entire room. In this price range, one can only be amazed at what the Panasonic/Technics engineers have delivered here. Conclusion: Device firmware note more than “poor” and iOS & Andorid app note “insufficient”. This app (iOS as well as Android) takes a long time to find devices and regularly hangs up adjustments when importing device data and user settings because the connection is interrupted. Once you have managed to adjust the settings and simply let the SC-C30 speaker run in one mode, it runs stable. But not in conjunction with a second, same SC-C30 speaker in stereo mode as a network. 2. Speaker thus goes back to the dealer. What a pity.
The SC-C30, like its big brother, is an active streaming box that leaves nothing to be desired. In addition to network streaming on the LAN or WLAN, it also functions in standalone mode as an Internet radio, DAC for CD players and also as an output device for analog sources such as a turntable, cassette deck or other players. The existing rear inputs are: 1x LAN RJ45, Toslink, USB-A and a 3.5mm jack socket. Of course, it is also possible to connect iPads, Android tablets, mobile phones, PCs or MACs via Bluetooth and Airplay. The USB connection serves as a slot for a stick. The supported formatting is FAT16, FAT 32, and NTFS. The playable audio formats are: WAV and AIFF: 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192, 352.8, 384 kHz/16, 24, 32 bit FLAC and ALAC: 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192, 32.4 kHz/16, 24 bit DSD: 2.8 MHz, 5.6 MHz AAC: 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96 kHz/16-320 kbps MP3:32, 44.1, 48 kHz/16- 320 kbit/s This means that all relevant audio formats can be used. You can hardly wish for more. The multiroom functionality is not always reliable, at least for me. Strangely enough, the DMR connection is more unstable than a Bluetooth connection. This may be due to my telecom router, even though it is running on WiFi IEEE802.11ac 5GHz and I only use channels that are unused in the neighborhood. With my Samsung UHD TV, I don’t have these problems when streaming in 4K. You’d think that significantly more data flows over Wi-Fi in this operation. Strangely enough, these problems do not occur with either Bluetooth or DMR. But as I said, I can not rule out an error of the router. From time to time, the Technics app crashes on my Samsung S10. After configuring as a multiroom solution, it is sufficient to turn on the masterbox. The other speakers will then be automatically turned on by daisy chaining with the app. I placed the SC-C50 in the living room and the SC-C30 found its place at head level on a shelf in the L-shaped hallway. The semicircular radiation characteristic completely sounding the room. Also on the SC-C30 I took a lot of time to test different music genres with the beautiful little wunderbox. As with the SC-C50, I have chosen pieces that know very well and know what they must sound like. As a source, in addition to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Toslink (CD Player Marantz CD6006), I also tested the analog input with a reloop RP7000MKII turntable (with AT-VM95SH). A rega-phono mini served as a phono preamplifier. My test music was to be able to evaluate fairly like the SC-C50: Barber’s Adagio for Strings, Leonard Bernstein/NY Philharmonic Orch. 1971 Beethoven Eroica, Wilhelm Furtwängler/Berliner Phil. 1952 Saint-Saëns: Symphony #3, Herbert von Karajan/Berl Phil. 1982 Elgar: Cello Concerto In E Minor, Jacquor Du Pré 1970 Deep Purple: Infinite, The Suprising 2017 Dire Straits: Love over gold, Telegraph road 1982 Steven Wilson: Hand.Cannot.Erase, Perfect Life 2015 Jethro Tull: Thick as a brick, [stevenWilson Remix] 1972 Bobbi Humphy: Blacks And Blues, Just A Love Child (Remastered 1999) Osmath Car Peterson: Live in Cologne, Six and Four (Live) + Fly Me to the Moon (Live) 1963 Gil Evans: Out of the cool, La Nevada 1961 John Scofield: Hand Jive, Golden Daze + Do like Eddie 2010 Julia Holter: Have You In My Wilderness, How long 2015 Alicia Keys: Alicia, Underdog 2020 Power Station: 3-D The Catalog, Geiger Counter/Radioactivity (3-D) The Robots (3-D) 2017 Everything But The Girl: Walking Wounded, Wrong 1996 Purple Disco Machine: Hypnotized 2021 To be clear: no matter what source, the SC-C30 sounds really good. Although she does not quite get close to her big brother in deep bass, but still sounds convincing. This is also not surprising, since the SC-C30 can come up with a very similar speaker and amplifier configuration, even if “only” 5 chassis are installed. As with the SC-C50, the space-tune room measurement is on board and drives the small box to peak performance, provided that no bad 128Kbit MP3s are chased into. Even the best speaker can’t do anything. The workmanship is high quality and the design timeless and modern. There are no wishes left unfulfilled. If you do not want or can’t put a large hi-fi system in the apartment, you will be happy with this small box even with high demands on sound and appearance. With 2 SC-C30 as a stereo pair, the pleasure is sure to be a little greater.
The device is visually great. Unfortunately, it is not possible to integrate into Alexa. To sign up, you need to install both the Technics app and a Google app. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the highly praised settings on the speaker because the app crashed all the time. So for me only usable as an unconfigurable Bluetooth speaker for Amazon Music, played through a firetablet.
The first thing that stands out on the Technics speaker is first of all the extraordinary, yet successful design. The elliptical shape looks very noble, with the successful appearance and clean processing doing the rest. Purely optically, the SC-C30 looks a very good figure. It should fit perfectly into almost any living environment. The 170 cm long power cable is also already the only accessory that is included – in addition to a multilingual, easy-to-understand instruction manual. What can the device do? Connections include: USB, LAN (RJ45), optical digital output, Aux. And, of course, Wi-Fi. I found the integration into domestic Wi-Fi, well, a little awkward, because here the Google Home app is needed for it – it’s awful to me why you can’t do this via the actual app “Technics Audio Center”, which is also needed. Anyway, the integration into the Wi-Fi worked fine, but because of the additional app, but just a little cumbersome. The Technics app is clearly designed. The input source can be selected here. The sources are once divided into “streaming”, “devices” and “home network”. Streaming includes: Radio, Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Podcasts, and Chromecast. Under devices we can find: USB, Aux, Opt (i.e. optical input) and, of course, Bluetooth. Home network is represented by a music server and “this device”, where “this device” means where the Technics app was installed and connected to the SC-C30. So the SC-C30 is not poor at sources. When turned on, a white light shines at the bottom, which can be dimmed by a switch on the back. This light shines even during operation. I initially paired via Bluetooth, which worked fine. Files that are on the phone play just as easily as files accessed through apps, i.e. Youtube, etc. Then I connected a USB flash drive with music (about 800 MB): did not work at first, that is, the stick was not recognized as a device. So stick reformatted, this time in “ntfs” instead of Fat32 and behold: it went. The stick was detected without any problems. The operation, in turn, is done via the app, where the bands, albums, i.e. the folder structure stored on the stick, are displayed. Folged great. I then copied my entire music collection (109 GB) to the stick (Sandisk, USB 3.0; 128 GB) and this one too was recognized – but the reading took a little (about 1 minute). The other input signals (optical, Aux, etc.) were also easily detected and played. Only the LAN port I could not test. What does the SC-C30 sound like: a word? Super! I was thrilled with both the sound and the volume. The part, of course, does not replace a wonderful (good!) Stereo, but this really only fails due to the lack of steroenect – the sound itself is awesome. I always test with the same songs, so Rush – Tom Sawyer Depeche Mode Nothing to Fear and Sinead O’Connor – Thank you for Hearing Me. Rush: very fine highs, very clear but fat bass; Geddy Lee’s vocals come clearly Depeche Mode: the highs (I’m a height fan and not a bass enthusiast) come crystal clear, the bass is balanced and the booming synthia in the background rumbers wonderfully in the background. Sinead O’Connor: here the chaff often separates from the wheat, as this song covers quite a lot of spectrum. Great sound! Sinead’s fragile voice at the beginning (you even hear how do I explain this? Well, saliva in the mouth, some kind of short smacking). So I don’t need it much more when listening to music. The starting bass, to the point – bold, clear. Even at high volume, the sound remains and clear. I’m really excited about the sound. This can also be set in the app (the usual: treble, mid, bass). Although the operation via the app (we installed the Technics app on the family tablet) is probably favourited and also simply more convenient, you can of course also make intervention on the device itself, albeit a few: volume, on/off, source selection works through a small control panel with display on the Top of the device. Conclusion: class, solid optics, many connections/sources, sound tip! If there is a point of criticism, it is the somewhat cumbersome integration into Wi-Fi via the additional necessary Google app, but this is done quickly on the one hand and just annoys once. I’m not pulling a star for that.
remote control??? There was no remote control!!!! Should a remote control be included? Then it is missing ((( Technics probably doesn’t say anything to everyone, but Panasonic probably tells everyone. Technics is a trademark of Panasonic Corporation and has existed since 1965 and is a special audio division of Panasonic, which, like Braun Audio, specializes in high-quality speaker systems. ” What can the Technics SC-C30E-W do? Basically, it is more useful to ask, what can not this device? It does not have a Google Home Voice Assistant and cannot natively support Amazon Music. It can: – Chromecast – AirPlay – Internet Radio – Spotify – TIDAL – Deezer – Multi-Room Support – Bluetooth Connection – Wi-Fi Connection – Network Playback – USB Playback – Aux-in – Optical-in – Space Tune Google Home Integration – Control via Technics App – Podcast playback – shakes the room with the powerful subwoofer ” setup is made using the Google Home app and thus integrated into the home network. Via Technics app, you can continue to set up and control the speaker. For example, you can use this app to complete the Space Tune setup. The loudspeaker is adapted to its location to achieve the best sound. But be careful: when setting up the Space Tune option, there are different sounds that scare some. ” Control The Technics SC-C30E-W can be operated manually using the buttons on the display or via the Technics app itself. There you can add favourites to quickly access your favorite radio stream, for example. You have access to all sorts of podcasts and radio streams in the world. The controls are very simple and intuitive. Unfortunately, voice control via Google Home Assistant is missing to adjust the volume via voice command. ” Sounded the most important and also the most impressive. The sound is enormous and I never thought it possible for this relatively compact speaker to send such an intense, but also clear sound through the room with such a huge bass. So far I only knew such good sound quality from Braun LE02. The SC-C30E-W can actually compete with the LE02 and not just sound a single room, but easily the whole house. ” Design Elegantly curved and absolutely high-quality and impeccably processed is the design. It looks modern, yet timeless. The design fits in any room and can stand inconspicuously in the corner – until the first sound sounds and all eyes are focused on the device, or present in the room as an eye-catcher. The location does not matter, as the sound can be adapted to it to always achieve the best result. ” Conclusion sound and design are absolutely convincing and definitely justify the price. Integration with Google Home is good, but Alexa users are out of the way. Likewise, some streaming services are supported natively, but Amazon Music only goes via AirPlay/Chromecast and therefore requires another device. A more open system or a wider choice would have been desirable here. However, since the whole thing is limited mainly by Google Home and the device is otherwise the absolute insanity, it just deserves 5 stars. I hope my review was useful and was able to give a good first impression on this device. But you have to convince yourself of the sound personally, as it does not come across as well as it is in real on any video in the world.
This review refers to the OTTAVA SC-C30 S wireless speaker system (white). For the appearance and processing, it can be said that the SC-C30 is very well made. The design is elegant and timeless. The unit has two woofers, two tweeters and a 12 cm subwoofer, which provide a very wide sound field. The long-range subwoofer with a long connection and a large diameter creates a powerful bass base. Thanks to a special acoustic lens, the tweeter can achieve a variety of directional effects. Although the appearance of SC-C30 seems so compact, the product has a wide and cleverly staggered range of sound. The six buttons around the SC-C30’s circular display allow you to switch between input options, including Bluetooth, Aux, Optical, Internet radio and Chromecast-enabled apps. You can also use the Technics Audio Center app to stream music files from devices on the network. Another advantage that stands out is that you can actually place the device no matter where and still have a good sound experience everywhere. This is possible thanks to the option of the placement mode where you can specify where the device is located, for example, near the wall, etc. The speaker then amplifies the sound accordingly. In addition, you can use the smartphone app and the built-in microphone to achieve better sound quality. This optimization of the room’s audio signal gives you a really good sound experience. In addition, the sound system has integrated Google Chromecast. It allows you to stream and transfer various applications to your smartphone, including Spotify and Deezer, and other Chromecast-enabled speakers for multi-room sound. Another highlight: you can register nine favorite channels or playlists on your device by holding down the star button on the screen. However, there is also the option to control the device by voice if you have a suitable voice activated device (for example, Google Home Mini). I am really enthusiastic about the product and give a clear recommendation to buy.
