Panasonic Europe announced at the Berlin-held IFA 2017 several audio and video products destined for European retail shelves, including a new reference-class direct-drive version of the iconic Technics SP-10 turntable, named the SP-10R.
Michiko Ogawa, Technics’ director, also unveiled what will be Panasonic’s first voice-controlled smart speaker with built-in Google Assistant, Model GA-10, to be made available in Europe this winter. It is in a rectangular vertical form and boasts 20mm soft-dome tweeters with proprietary diffusers, and a dual voice-coil 8cm woofer. It is also multi-room-audio-capable.
