The Stream Amp utilises a very good quality and highly musical amplifier, that delivers deceptively subtle and detailed audio performance with its 2 x 50w amplifier. This is best seen and heard when paired with the outstanding and dynamic Archipel 17ICD in-ceiling speakers.
The Archipel range of loudspeakers is designed for perfect integration in ceilings and walls, with no performance compromises. Ideal for larger areas that naturally require a 6.5" driver, the Archipel 17icd's are a must for rooms where optimum fidelity and depth of field is required.
Developed with the same passion that goes into the technical and acoustic design of all Cabasse loudspeakers. The range offers the same presence, high fidelity sound reproduction and user benefits that are to be found in all the company’s products. As with all Cabasse speakers - these speakers can be fairly seamlessly matched with others throughout the range - meaning that if you choose from the Cabasse stable, all products - subs, satellites or in-wall's will compliment one another accordingly.
Behind its flush grille, either round or square, the Archipel 17icd hides a high-end co-axial unit with a Duocell membrane for the woofer and a Kaladex semi-rigid dome for the tweeter. This combination of Cabasse proprietary solutions, responsible for the success of the iO2 satellite, is now available in a full range in-ceiling speaker. These superior quality components working in tandem with their unique Cabasse design features, enable the Archipel 17icd's to have a a really detailed response, that boasts great neutrality and tonal balance.
The heart of the musicality these speakers offer is the great sweet spot that transcends down from the esteemed Cabasse lineage, making them ideal for better quality distributed audio systems that require a higher level of sonic ability. The added benefit of the larger driver give these speakers a sweet, natural and deep response that will fill the room they are situated in beautifully.
