Another GaN smaller integrated, Technics SU-G30 has everything bar the kitchen sink.




This smaller SU-G30 integrated version of the SU-R1000 I started last week has it all, it's the  complete network audio integrated amp. Nowhere near the power of the SU-R1000, but all the goodies, for $4k looks great for units and offices or smaller hifi systems.

Yeah, but cracked glass, wonder if it was dropped? I’d be nervous buying something like that see cracked glass.

I was really on the fence about getting the SU-R1000, but I really want to dual monoblock my new speakers when they come and wanted to spend more on amplification, but a part of me feels I should just sell off my amps, and extra gear and get the SU-R1000.

I tell myself I need to be invested in this hobby for at least 5 years (not just 10 months) before I shell out that kinda money on one piece of equipment.
ja_kub_sz, 
All your thoughts and comments on the SU-G700 is making it harder to wait for mine to come in. The guys at musicdirect told me that due to shipping container ships backed up and Technics moving their assembly to Malaysia, the units aren't coming in like they used to, but to be patient.

It's really hard waiting.

All the best,

The use of speaker impedance data to perform DSP on any speaker it’s connected to is quite interesting. Wonder how that compares to the more powerful and elegant Devialte expert series, which has that feature for only select speakers?

It really is very interesting.  It is also not that hard to do yourself. The idea in the Technics amps is to correct for the amplifier however, not the speaker or the room.  It won't fix room modes or calibrate your speakers in anyway.  It will only correct for any deviations from flat the amplifier puts out, and, I believe, correct for the minor phase angle changes most Class D amps have in the top end.

It's almost like a feed-forward circuit, and it probably has strict limits in amplitude, maybe less than 1 dB of voltage correction.  If I had a bunch of time I might even try this myself to see how my Class D amps compare before and after.

Yeah but can you imagine if that was it, (no chassis dings on the corners) couple of small scratches and just a replacement glass, these things were around $20k back then. And only if you were someone important, could you get one. (This could be the Emperor of Japans one)🙄

Like these magic Sony Reference ESL’s only for the Emperor of Japan🙄
