Cabasse THE PEARL
Cabasse, the iconic French brand and historic leader in the HiFi market, announces the launch, after 3 years of R&D, of an exceptional audio product, THE PEARL – an active high-definition connected speaker that concentrates all the expertise and technology of the mythical Sphere in a compact active speaker in a round format. With its refined & powerful design, ultra-pure acoustics faithful to brand signature sound, and perfect restitution of music without any alteration, coloring or distortion; THE PEARL has that “je ne sais quoi” that appeals to the most demanding music lovers looking to acquire a compact and wireless speaker without compromising on acoustic quality!
THE PEARL is the first High Definition wireless active speaker made by Cabasse, which has been winning over audiophiles in France and around the world since the end of 2018 thanks to its technological innovations, its design and the quality finishing.
The inventor of coaxial technology which has forged the reputation of the brand for decades, Cabasse has succeeded in a new technological feat with THE PEARL : develop and integrate into a smaller volume (as a reminder: 130 cm in height for La Sphère versus 32 cm for THE PEARL), the first compact triaxial loudspeaker (bass, medium, and new coaxial tweeter with medium carbon and neodymium) for compact size, power handling as well as wide and smooth frequency response of 14 Hz to 27000 Hz without any directivity, coloring or distortion making it possible to free music from technical constraints leaving only the essence of Acoustic Emotions. The brand new 25cm Woofer allows for linear excursion of more than 30mm, offering an exceptional level of rich bass, which is the most dynamic on the market.
With the sound power equivalent to that of a Formula 1 race car (118dB) and Cabasse acoustic expertise, THE PEARL successfully restores all the purity of sound.
For perfect and fully immersive sound, as within an auditorium, Cabasse engineers equipped this exceptional speaker with an automatic calibration system (CRCS) that takes full advantage of the integrated microphone and Cabasse patented technology (equivalent to that of the Sphere).
It is also possible to connect to THE PEARL via the Stream CONTROL app, and customize the balance between treble, medium and bass (audio spectrum).
For even more exceptional sound, it is possible to create a stereo system with unrivaled performance with two THE PEARL speakers through a simple Wifi connection, and without an additional box or hub, making it possible to listen to digital audio sources. It is also possible to listen to television, a CD player, or even a combination platinum and phono stage for listening to vinyls through its optical and analog inputs.
THE PEARL, with Bluetooth and Wifi connectivity, integrates seamlessly within the Cabasse StreamCONTROL multi-room system and supports all audio files: from MP3, AAC, WMA to AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, ultra high-definition files; whether they are stored on hard disks or computers, internet radio or online music services (Spotify, Qobuz, Napster, Deezer, Tidal). THE PEARL is compatible with the Google Assistant and soon Amazon Alexa voice assistants. On top of that, THE PEARL is compatible, without the need of additional equipment, with the entire range of Cabasse streaming audio, allowing for an exceptional, multi-room acoustic experience.
Faithful to brand design in its spherical shape, ideal for spatial coherence, THE PEARL plays the card of seduction with a decorative jewel casing that evokes both gentleness and power. Its noble materials sublimate the performance: not less than 6 layers of lacquer were necessary to obtain the best rendering in 2 possible finishes: metallic black & pure chromium rings, or pearl white with silver rings, as well as carbon membranes, aluminum dissipator & drivers, reinforced double shell and magnetic metal grille with the Cabasse logo… all of which contributes to the beauty of THE PEARL.
For simplified use, THE PEARL is also equipped with a connected controller with refined finishes as well as clean and ergonomic design. No need to systematically use the application, the Bluetooth connected remote control, held in the palm of your hand, can easily control the device: volume control by rotating the ring, choice of input, play and pause, selection of a favorite radio or music track among the presets and custom programming through the app.
