Technics remains committed to the Compact Disc, showing its SA-C600 Compact Network CD Receiver at CES – James Barber

Technics is looking to fill the middle ground between all-in-one compact speaker systems and true component systems with its $1,000 SA-C600 Compact Network CD Receiver. In addition to featuring an integrated top-loading CD player, this unit supports all the major music-streaming services, and it’s compatible with both Google’s Chromecast and Apple’s AirPlay 2 multi-room audio standards.
