IFA 2017: Panasonic announces its smart speakers with Google Assistant

SC-GA10 combines Smart with Hi-Fi

  • Panasonic today announced the SC-GA10, one of the world's first Hi-Fi speakers with Google Assistant built in.
    The SC-GA10 speakers will incorporate all of Google Assistant’s voice assisted operations and support all of the major music streaming apps including Spotify, Google Play Music, and Tune-in radio.

    Panasonic's audio technology has been fully incorporated into the speakers to achieve what they claim to be ‘extremely rich, robust bass, despite its compact size.

    By a simple voice command, the SC-GA10 can via Google Assistant stream music, answer questions about the weather and even control other compatible smart devices. Google Assistant's Multi-room Audio function means users can further combine it with Chromecast Audio or Chromecast integrated speakers, allowing music lovers to sync and control music playback through multiple speakers.

    At the front of the speakers, the two 20-mm Soft Dome Tweeters have been specifically designed with a silk diaphragm for its diffuser, opening at a 45º angle. This gives a full 180º range to the high-frequency directional sounds. To ensure crisp, clear vocals of Google Assistant, an 8-cm Woofer with a Dual Voice Coil is placed to suppress any acoustic impedance, rising between the medium- to high-frequency audio range. The bass sounds are further enriched by a Long Port Back Bass Reflex System. Additionally the Meshed Diaphragm with a Wide Role Rubber Edge design reduces distortion in the low-frequency sound range.

    A new Panasonic Music Control App will be released alongside the launch of the SC-GA10. By connecting the SC-GA10 to this app, the user is not only able to play music stored in a smartphone, tablet, or NAS, but can also enjoy a variety of unique functions. These functions include Stereo Pairing where users can connect two SC-GA10 devices, and Party mode that transfers Bluetooth and AUX sound sources to multiple SC-GA10 speakers.
