The R1 Reference class is a prestigious system Technics holds their highest standard to. This was the missing piece of their ultimate system, and now it’s available to the public. The built-in network playback circuit uses Jitter-Elimination Noise-shaping optimization to both cancel jitter and background noise. 100 watts per channel into 4 ohms performs high-speed switching with minimal loss, providing clearer sound. All this coupled with a low-distortion power supply provides an excellent, simple-to-navigate network playback option. Hi-res format support all around with various digital and analog inputs available.
No photoshop here. That logo is actually being shown on the television. Unlike any other 4K television in it's class, the Z9 delivers the greatest dynamic range possible in a flat-screen. That's thanks partly to the 600-LED-individually-lit backlight that pushes the color and brightness expectation of televisions today. Even more, thank the carefully-perforated grid above the backlight that focuses light into specific regions...so even images of car headlights and neon signs look crisp as text.
