Technics OTTAVA C50 Premium Wireless Speaker - Silver is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another excellent product I was given the product by Panasonic to review as part of the Panasonic Reviewer Programme. Stylish piece of kit (I got the silver coloured one) Connected with my existing Google Assistant straight away although such a shame that it doesn't have this built in. Sound quality is very good. Great for using Spotify and again easy to connect and set up. Connects to tv with optical cable and gives a fabulous sound quality It would have been perfect if it had a remote control and google assistant. Would certainly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Technics goes grown-up wireless and delivers! I have been given this product by Panasonic to review as part of the Panasonic Reviewer Programme. The minimalist and elegant design is very contemporary and allows the unit to be prominently placed in any room. Switching on is easy and the OLED display really does look superb. The digital presentation is very cool and adds to the top-end feel of this player. I went for the 'free' preset mode in the Space Tune menu and placed the player in the middle of the room. I did also try the other modes for comparison but did not really notice any significant difference. The room I tested it in was a reasonable size and the speaker power was more than adequate. I have often found with smaller units that the bass is very weak but clearly much thought has gone into the speaker setup here with two 20 watt front speakers and a 40w sub-woofer. I have to admit I am not an audiophile so don't really understand the impressive sounding tech jargon on the Technics website ("Four Jeno engines produce optimal performance" - what on earth does that mean??!!) but the sound was actually amazing for such a compact unit, very rich and deep and no distortion on higher volume. My daughter played Tyler the Creator's new album, Ikon, from her Bluetooth connected iPhone, superb! I have not felt the need to really get stuck in with the 'Technics Audio Center App' so I will leave that to someone else. So, the stuff we have used is Bluetooth, Wifi, Chromecast, USB and the internet radio, all of which has really been a breeze. To sum up, it is not as if I have been doing a group test of similar products but I can honestly say I would find it hard to believe I would find anything else at this price point that would satisfy me more. I have no doubt there are audiophiles out there that would dig a lot deeper but you do also have to take into account the work that has gone into the design of the product which means it can sit front and centre in any room. Now, where do I plugin an SL-1200...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astounding authority and control over music This Ottava SC-C50 wireless speaker was sent to me for an independent review as part of the Panasonic Reviewer Programme. Astounding authority over the music, makes you sit up and listen. It's in a league above my Naim QB and B&W Zepplin. Clarity is excellent though base needs to be controlled via the settings. For the size it is the best speaker I have found to date. Plays high resolution files on the USB stick easily. The space time for getting the best sound from my room layout seems to work well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An incredible sound quality in a compact size. SC-C50 I've been using the OTTAVA C50 for more than a week now. I am using the speaker mostly while watching Netflix films and playing my favourite XBOX ONE X video games. I have the device sound connected to my console using a digital optical cable. Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack or Ethernet connection is available. The Technics app has a weekly Play timer, Tone control, Sleep mode, Voice mode and lots of options. In the mobile app there is a futuristic feature called Space tune that use your phone's microphone to measure my room using the most convenient sound mode. I love the fact that I can stream/cast anything in addition of all speaker connections that is including (Google Chromecast built-in, Airplay, Spotify, Tidal, Dezzer, any Internet Radio and Network Playback from any room of your house). It is compatible with multi-room high connectivity, stereo pairs, and 5Ghz Wi-Fi. There is a small screen on the top of the speaker with a button panel where you can use to increase the volume, change the input source or change between songs. The speaker has 3 midranges, 3 tweeters and 1 subwoofer with 40 W. It is compact in size and approx. 5.9kg. The build quality of the speaker is first class. The top of the OTTAVA has aluminium finished and 4 rubber legs on the bottom to avoid vibrations, this allowed me to have the speaker installed on the top of a furniture with no vibrations. You can plug a USB type A device (2TB MAX) on the back of the device to play your best music without needing to connect wireless. You can update the device via internet or USB. A really documented support website from Panasonic is available. I was given the product by Panasonic to review as part of the Panasonic Reviewer Programme. This speaker have a great design to decorate your living room. I would highly recommend the SC-50 because the really good sound quality. Thanks, Salvador

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome piece of kit Great unit with plenty of features. Sounds awesome when listening to music. I connected this to my Sky Q box via the optical connection and was impressed with the outcome. I love the radio feature. The speaker was a little tricky to set up via the Wi-fi but the sound overshadows that. I have done this review as part of the Panasonic Reviewer Programme.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous Sound and Design I was given the speaker by Panasonic to review as part of the Panasonic Reviewer Programme. The design of the speaker is modern and futuristic and fits well in in our garden room which is bright and minimalist. It is also quite heavy. The set up process would benefit from a better start up guide and a trouble shooting section in the basic guide. It was more a case of trial and error, but it was easy to set up and to connect my Apple devices. Kindle Fire connection was a problem and abandoned trying to connect this. The initial sound quality was very heavy on the base. However the Space Tune function was easy to use and adjusted the sound quality which was then superb. Apps were easy to download and use especially the Technics Audio Center which gives access to radio stations and podcasts. It was easy to use Bluetooth and Aux cable for access to Spotify and Prime Music. Have not managed to connect my CD player yet as cables needed that were not supplied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoying the Music the Best way I was given the product by Panasonic to review as part of the Panasonic Reviewer Programme, Space Tune feature helps enjoying music better. Whatever Volume you use it doesn't affect enjoying Music or affecting neighbours. Dance away while you can control it using Smartphone with WIFI or Bluetooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would highly recommend this product to everyone I do feel I have found a high quality, Wireless Speaker System that exceeds my music listening requirements and is a replacement for my existing surround sound system. The Ottava will take up less space, not comprise on sound quality and fit in with existing décor
