Panasonic’s 2018 Blu-ray players
Panasonic Australia has unveiled its first Hi-Fi smart speaker with Google Assistant. Along with a new 2018 Blu-ray range.
The new $379 SC-GA10 smart speaker features Google Assistant’s full suite of voice commands, and includes streaming via Spotify, Google Play Music and more.
Aaron Waters, Panasonic Audio & Video Product Marketing Manager, claims the new SC-GA10 delivers sound “any music buff would be impressed with”, whilst supporting Google’s “entire ecosystem”.
Multi-room audio functionality enables the SC-GA10 to connect and control multiple speakers via Chromecast – e.g. Panasonic’s new HC2020 micro hi-fi system.
The SC-GA10 incorporates two 20mm Soft Dome Tweeters, claimed to cover a full 180-degree range for high-frequency directional sounds.
An 8cm woofer with Dual Voice Coil claims to suppress acoustic impedance, for a “more robust and impressive bass”. A ‘Meshed Diaphragm with Wide Role Rubber’ endeavours to reduce distortion for lowfrequency sound.
The new SC-GA10 smart speaker is also compatible with Panasonic’s Music Control app, which includes music control, stereo pairing and EQ setting adjustment. The Japanese company intends to further expand the capabilities of its Music Control app.
