Features

JENO (Jitter Elimination & Noise-Shaping Optimization) Engine: In order to faithfully transmit the massive amount of audio data sent to the speakers without loss, the Technics SU-G700 power amp section uses full digital amplification employing the JENO Engine, based on the design concept of reference systems. In order to solve the issue of sound quality degradation due to jitter, which poses problems for conventional digital amplifiers, the SU-G700 has an original jitter reduction circuit that eliminates jitter over the entire audible frequency range. Also, a unique, high-precision PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) conversion circuit is used for PWM conversion, which is important for sound quality. By optimizing the noise-shaping speed, degree, and quantization number through Technics' unique expertise, data even in the wide dynamic range contained in high-resolution sound sources is converted to PWM signals without loss. These technologies provide reproduction of natural and finely detailed sound, enabling perception even of delicate music nuances.

LAPC (Load Adaptive Phase Calibration): Speaker impedance changes with each frequency and a power amplifier is required to drive speakers without being affected by the speaker’s characteristics. However, conventional digital amplifiers are connected to speakers through a low-pass filter at the output stage, so they are even more strongly affected by the speaker impedance characteristics. Also, although the amplitude characteristics of conventional amplifiers due to negative feedback were improved, the phase characteristics could not be enhanced. Technics thus developed a speaker impedance adaptive optimization algorithm that performs correction to the ideal impulse response through digital signal processing by measuring the frequency amplitude-phase characteristics of the amplifier with the speakers connected. This new technique enables flattening the frequency characteristics of amplitude and phase, which had previously not been achieved by amplifiers, as well as delivering a sound with rich spatial expression.

High-Speed Silent Hybrid Power Supply: With a conventional switch mode power supply, the switching frequency changes in response to the load fluctuation in order to control the switching ON time for stabilizing the output voltage. This fluctuation component in the switching frequency has a negative impact on sound quality. The newly developed power supply reduces the noise component harmful to sound quality by fixing the switching frequency. In addition, the latter stage in the switching power supply is provided with a linear regulator to stabilize the output voltage. The linear regulator uses custom, high-definition electrolytic capacitors. What's more, Technics' current resonance-type power supply decreases the level of switching noise. The parts used for absorbing noise, such as capacitors, were carefully selected. All possible measures were taken to achieve low noise and reproduce clear sound.

Digital Noise Isolation Architecture: For the PC input terminals, the amplifier uses power conditioners with non-magnetic carbon film resistors that provide strong protection against magnetic distortion, and high-quality ruby mica capacitors featuring excellent characteristics such as low dielectric loss, high voltage resistance, and temperature stability. Sound reproduction with greater purity was pursued by blocking the incursion of outside noise.

Three-Section Configuration: In integrated amplifiers there are a variety of circuits, including circuits that handle the micro-signals of inputs and those that handle a large current, such as output circuits and power-supply circuits. The SU-G700 uses a three-section construction with partitions installed between the circuit blocks according to the signal level handled. This eliminates interference between circuit blocks, thus achieving clear sound quality. Also, the chassis rigidity due to this construction suppresses the vibration of electrical parts, thereby suppressing deterioration in sound quality.

Optimally Activated Circuit System: The Optimally Activated Circuit System allows the operation of various digital modules to be stopped - such as those used for display, analogue and digital interfaces - to minimize the noise generated when music is playing.

Battery Driven Clock Generator: The best power supply for delicate circuitry such as the clock generator in new amplifiers is one entirely isolated from any noise or fluctuations in the mains supply. Technics has extensive experience in power supply isolation using batteries. This technology creates ultra-low-noise pre-amplifier stages.

High-Quality Analog Circuit: The analog input is converted with high precision to a digital signal by the high quality 24-bit/192kHz A/D converter [Burr-Brown PCM1804 (Texas Instruments)], so the high-purity sound reproduction capability of the full-digital system can be maximized in playing back analog sources. High-definition switching relays are used for signal switching.

Low-Noise Phono Stage: The Phono input achieves low noise by using a differential parallel connection configuration of a first-stage, low-noise FET. In addition, four-level gain adjustment enables selection of the best gain according to the cartridge output. This enables optimal playback of high-grade analogue recorded sound sources tailored to the user's environment.

Class AA Headphone Amplifier: The SU-G700 uses a Class AA headphone amplifier with separate amplifier circuits for voltage amplification and current amplification of the audio signal. The voltage is amplified by a high-grade operational amplifier, the current is amplified by an operational amplifier with high current-supply capability, and the high-grade PWM signal output from the JENO Engine is converted to analogue with high precision, thus enabling headphones to be ideally driven. This makes it possible to reproduce music with low distortion and a wide frequency range no matter the load impedance of the headphones.

High-Rigidity Aluminum Cabinet: The High-rigidity Metal Double Chassis features a steel-plate inner chassis and a steel-plate outer chassis to reduce vibration and noise that degrade the purity of sound. To support heavy parts and components and lower the center of gravity for improved stability, the inner chassis is made of a 1.2mm thick plate. The bottom surface of the cabinet is a 2mm thick steel plate. This improves the vibration damping performance and achieves a low center of gravity. The front-panel is made of a 7mm thick aluminum plate to resist the effects of electromagnetic noise.
