Blog post   •   Feb 26, 2016 15:00 GMT

Technics will exhibit new audio systems at the Sound & Vision show in Bristol from Friday 26th - Sunday 28th February.

Popular with hi-fi and home entertainment enthusiasts, the Sound and Vision show features the latest in sonic innovation. At this year’s show, the Grand Class SL-1200G direct drive turntable will be making its UK debut. Joining the much anticipated turntable will be its Grand Class hi-fi component companions, the premium-class C700A hi-fi range and the OTTAVA all-in-one wireless music system, offering classic Technics design for the lounge or bedroom.

Visitors will be able to experience these systems throughout the Sound and Vision show and audio experts from Technics will be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have.

Technics has always produced audio products that deliver uncompromising sound quality and since the return of the brand in 2014, the focus has been on high-resolution audio. This next generation digital audio format offers sound quality better than CD. With enhanced detail and clarity, it recreates recording studio-quality fidelity in the home. Listeners can hear their favourite musicians and artists as the producers and artists intended as high-resolution music comes directly from the recording studio master recordings and recreates perfect copies and sound reproduction without the need for any compression.

All Technics audio systems on show at the Sound and Vision show feature the latest cutting-edge digital signal processing and noise isolation technology. Whether you’re using streaming services such as Tidal, playing downloaded hi-res files from online services such as Technics Tracks or rediscovering your vinyl or CD album collections, Technics will deliver a truly entertaining music experience.

Part of the high-res audio story is the recent resurgence of vinyl, the original audiophile format which stands head to head with the quality of high-res digital music. The warm analogue sound of vinyl records is finding favour again with music fans across all generations. Its rise has seen an official UK vinyl chart launched last year and as sales in the UK climbed 56% in the first half of 2015*, this trend looks likely to continue.

The Bristol Show takes place at the Marriot City Centre Hotel Bristol.

Lower Castle Street, Bristol, BS1 3AD

The Grand Class Series, including the SL-1200GAE turntable will be exhibiting in Room 302, 3rd Floor while the the Premium Class C Series and OTTAVA music system can be found in Room 304, 3rd Floor.

Technics is the brand name of hi-fi audio products owned by Panasonic Corporation.
