Technics (brand)
Technics is a brand name of the Panasonic Corporation, a company that produces a variety of electronic products.
Under the brand name Technics, the company produced a variety of hi-fi products, such as turntables, amplifiers, receivers, tape decks, CD players and speakers for sale in various countries. It was conceived for a line of high-end audio equipment to go against such companies as Nakamichi, but most of its home products have been rebranded as Panasonic starting in 2002, except in Japan and certain other areas like the former Soviet Union, places where the brand holds considerable appeal.
DJ equipment, electronic pianos and Micro Hi-Fi Systems are some of the Technics products currently being sold in the USA and Europe.
On 3 September 2014, Panasonic announces that Technics brand is coming back.

    Hi, I have a question regarding servicing Technics turntables, specifically an SL-DD33, hopefully somebody can help. I am having a few issues with the auto cue position which varies from time to time and I am putting it down to it being old and requiring servicing. The manual mentions two...

    Trying to Connect Turntable to Receiver to Speakers

    Hi everyone, My turntable is an audio-technica at-lp120xusb with built in phono and line pre-amp. When I connect it to my Technics su-3050 integrated amp the sound from the speakers (aiwa sx-lem70 6 ohms) is super low, and I mean super low! Is it because I am connecting a turntable with a built...

    Do Turntables have a sound ?

    Bit controversial this one …. I have been looking at the Technics turntables for some time, especially the 1200 & 1210GR series, both look like beasts! however I’m not sure that unplugging mine and swapping it over using all the same gear even the existing stylus will make me hear anything...

    1970-1980 Technics speaker vinish DIY

    Does anyone have any information on the finish of Technics speakers. I have the SB-G300 and would like to sand out the light scratches and refinish in the factory colour. It does look like it's a wood veneer rather than a vinyl veneer, would Technics have used a clear satin finish on the veneer...

    Hi guys! I have a quick question regarding the aforementioned setup. I just bought a Technics SL1210 mk2 which came with a Concorde DJ cartridge and connected to the phono of my old Technics SU-VX720 amp which has these specs: It sounds pretty good, but I can hear slight distortions on the...

    Kenwood LS-770a, Technics SB-G300, Wharfedale Kingsdale 3, B&W 603 S2 reviews wanted.

    I have the Kenwood connected to my 1981 Technics system for music, the B&W are part of my AV surround system. Would the Technics be an upgrade over the Kenwood, and are these speakers OK to replace the B&W to free up some space? Ideally I'd like the Kenwood or Technics for the surround sound...

    Hi, I have a Technics SL-DD33 turntable which I have brought out of storage and works ok apart from the start/stop button auto cue mechanism.

    Speakers to use with Sansui Au-999?

    Hello, My first post and new to the topic of audio equipment (sorry for my ignorance). I've recently obtained a Sansui AU-999 pre-amp and as far as I can tell it works just fine - I replaced 4 internal 5amp fuses, that's it. I have an old set of bi-wired speakers (technics sb-dv250) and wired...

    Technics SUV-470

    Hello Everyone, I have decided to resurrect my old Technics SUV-470 amp and separates - whats the point of leaving them in boxes doing nothing? Unfortunately, the volume on the amp is biased towards one channel and the culprit is the volume pot - I think one of the carbon tracks has become...

    Technics sb6000/7000

    A pair of Technics sb7000 have become available for me at the cost of £900. There is also a pair of sb6000 at £500. I love the look and design, and they will match my vintage Technics hifi, but are they worth it. If the surrounds split, or a cone blows then it's game over. What was the...

    Technics SA-C600 vs Naim Mu-so Qb first generation

    Happy Sunday, guys. I'm a happy owner of a Naim Mu-so Qb 1st generation that I bought approximately four years ago. The quality of the sound delivered is excellent, even though you have to pump the volume up a lot to get the best results, but I've always complained about its lack of flexibility...
