CD players are definitely not as popular as they used to be, and yet a company named Technics has decided to create one in this day and age. Admittedly, this is no ordinary CD player, as it comes with modern features such as a high-quality amplifier and a pair of wireless speakers that deliver irreproachable sound. The amplifier flaunts Load Adaptive Phase Calibration as well as Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimization – technologies that are usually implemented in higher-end products.
Dubbed Ottava SC500, this product also incorporates Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, and it boasts a sleek, minimalistic design that’s bound to appeal to current-day audiophiles. The $2,500 price tag is justified, not necessarily by the product’s playback technology but by its impeccable audio quality and pleasant looks.
