Building on Cabasse's audiophile foundations the brand new Stream BASE brings high-fidelity sound in a compact format right beneath your TV screen (up to 42in). It is the ideal platform for watching and listening to TV, plus discovering thousands of radio stations or streaming your favorite music from your LAN or streaming music services.
Audio pioneer, Cabasse, which has been at the forefront of active multi-way hi-fi and pro loudspeaker systems for 60 years, has designed a four-way per channel stereo solution for the Stream BASE. Active filtering technology ensures a spectacular sound quality by individually controlling the dome tweeter, the midrange and the low-midrange units of each channel. A dedicated low frequency channel, fitted with a long throw 13cm woofer firing downwards at 360°, brings substance and realism to the sound effects.
The full emotions of the user’s favourite films are enhanced with the Cabasse holographic sound processing, which enlarges the width and the depth of the sound stage, while dialogue remains clear and effects keep remain forceful. Every tone in the spectrum is rendered with accuracy, from high shrills to rumbling bass, for a spectacular show of sound that immerses the viewer in a rich 3D cinema experience in the comfort of the living room.
In keeping with the other models in the comprehensive Cabasse Stream range, when connected to a home network Stream BASE gives instant access to all of the music stored on the network, to thousands of internet radio stations and to audio streaming from Deezer, Napster, Qobuz, Spotify Connect and Tidal. The USB port gives direct access to music stored on USB sticks or hard drives, plays it on the Stream BASE and shares it with any streaming device in your home network, thanks to the built in DLNA server technology. The Bluetooth Aptx function provides an easy and strong connection for smartphones and tablets.
