IFA 2017: Panasonic to release Google speaker

Embracing the connected home.

Panasonic will release one of the world’s first Hi-Fi speakers with Google Assistant built in, in the first half of 2018 into the Australian market. The SC-GA10 speakers will incorporate all of Google Assistant’s voice assisted operations and support all of the major music streaming apps including Spotify, Google Play Music, and Tune-in radio.

By a simple voice command, the SC-GA10 can via Google Assistant stream music, answer questions about the weather and even control other compatible smart devices. Google Assistant’s multi-room audio function means users can further combine it with Chromecast Audio or Chromecast integrated speakers to sync and control music playback through multiple speakers.

At the front of the speakers, the two 20-mm Soft Dome Tweeters have been specifically designed with a silk diaphragm for its diffuser, opening at a 45 degree angle. This gives a full 180 degree range to the high-frequency directional sounds to create a wide, smooth and expansive sound effect.

To ensure crisp, clear vocals of Google Assistant, an 8cm woofer with a dual voice coil is placed to suppress any acoustic impedance, rising between the medium- to high-frequency audio range. The bass sounds are further enriched by a Long Port Back Bass Reflex System. Additionally the Meshed Diaphragm with a Wide Role Rubber Edge design efficiently reduces distortion in the low-frequency sound range.
