The amp section of the OTTAVA™ f succeeds the Technics Reference System design concept and embraces a fully-digital amp configuration equipped with JENO Engine (Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimization) in order to deliver all of the audio data contained in the high-resolution sound source faithfully to the speakers without loss.

Moreover, the OTTAVA™ f is equipped with three units of the same JENO Engine as those used in our high-end models to optimally drive the built-in speakers, thus achieving a high-quality, integrated hi-fi system that meets Technics standards. It adopts a bi-amp structure to separately drive the woofers (low-frequency sound) and tweeter/mid-range speaker units (mid-/high-frequency sound), and utilises the high-performance signal processing circuitry (DSP) mounted in the JENO engine to achieve precise channel dividing, adjustment of time alignment between speaker units, and correction of frequency characteristics.

The LAPC technology is applied even to the control of sound characteristics to realise “Space Tune™” for correcting changes in frequency characteristics that occur in actual use due to installation conditions.

  • Supported PCM192kHz/24bit FLAC/ALAC and DSD 5.6MHz, etc HiRes Format
  • Ultra-wide frequency band in a range of 40 Hz to 50 kHz
  • Top-loading CD player, USB Type A, Optical Digital & 3.5mm Analogue Input Terminal

Description

LAPC
LAPC is an original Technics speaker load adaptive technology. It measures the amp’s frequency amplitude phase characteristics with speakers connected to the unit, and performs digital signal processing to achieve the ideal impulse response. Characteristic parameters optimised for the low-frequency and high-frequency speaker load characteristics of speakers are already pre-set in the LAPC computation circuit of the unit to realise ideal frequency and phase characteristics over the entire frequency range.

 

Space Tune™
Space Tune™ delivers optimised sound for the customer’s listening environment.

 

Preset EQ provides the optimum Technics sound quickly
3 types of presets are available and choose one of them considering its placement.

  • iOS device calibration is available for more precise adjustment
  • Measure room acoustic conditions by using microphone integrated in iOS devices.

Acoustic Lens
The OTTAVA™ f is equipped with newly developed acoustic lenses featuring the “reverse dome-shape fin” structure. The back sides of the fins are shaped to match the form of the soft-dome diaphragms of the tweeters, and positioned closely to the speaker units to provide long sound paths. This realises a wide directionality, expanded sound field and detailed high-frequency sound reproduction capability over the frequency range of 11 kHz to the high-res range. The fins are continuously connected to the Acoustic Louver on the front side to minimise disturbance to the high-frequency characteristics.

 

Speaker System
The speaker system consists of three types of newly developed speaker units. The high-res dome tweeters feature silk diaphragms that boast an excellent damping factor and smooth sound characteristics. The mid-range speaker units maintain an appropriate peak level and achieve seamless crossover. The woofers, which must reproduce the sound source faithfully even during high-power input, are provided with a large edge made of high-strength NBR (nitrile rubber) with a superb amplitude linearity as well as tough and flexible high-strength fiber dampers to powerfully support the large-motion voice coil bobbins. Coupled with the dual bass-reflex ports, these three types of speaker units reproduce sound over an ultra-wide frequency band in a range of 40 Hz to 50 kHz.

 

Elegant and Timeless Design
Premium Material
The aluminium top panel not only gives an attractive appearance but also enhances the cabinet rigidity.

 

Elegant CD mechanism
The top-loading CD player beautifully illuminates the disc placed inside. The analogue-like operating feel gives greater pleasure for listening to your favourite CDs.

Aluminum Touch key
The touch keys are built into the top aluminium panel, achieving a clean and smooth design and high-quality operating feel.

Louver Front Grille
The louver front grille protects the speaker units and expresses the expansive and powerful sound reproduced by the OTTAVA™ f.

Twin Power Supply Circuit System
Regular power supplies use one transformer to supply power to the amp, CD drive, and digital circuits, and so if there is any load fluctuation or if noise occurs on a circuit, other circuits are affected, which results in degradation of the sound quality. This power supply system includes independently installed switch mode power supply circuitry for the amp and the other circuits, which eliminates mutual interference, thereby reducing degradation of sound quality caused by noise or power supply fluctuations. In addition, a layout with dedicated transformer and amp circuits enables the shortest possible connection to further reduce noise.

 

Optimally Activated Circuit System
The Optimally Activated Circuit System shuts down unneeded circuit and display to minimise the noise generated during playback.

 

Re-master
The high-precision signal processing circuitry of the JENO Engine is utilised to expand the frequency band of Bluetooth and Internet radio sources, in which high-frequency signals are commonly lost due to signal compression, to a range equivalent to that of a CD source. This eliminates the lack of expansiveness in high-frequency sound and the loss of sound details for enhanced sound quality.

Rapallo is fully authorized to sell products by all of the manufacturers listed on our website and in our store. In most cases we are more than a reseller, we are a direct dealer who also receives training and where possible we personally test products we sell.

Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo

  • meets manufacturer’s standards, from sales to service, in order to receive authorized status.
  • often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • provides  support for all the products they sell.
  • ensures that manufacturer warranties will be honoured.
  • buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (no grey imports or parallel imports).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Think you have a better price from someone in NZ (authorised dealer)? Call us, we’ll see what we can do.

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
