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.
