This excellent package is formulated with the outstanding Yamaha RX-A870 7.2 channel Dolby Atmos & DTS:X compatible AV Receiver, and Cabasse's highly acclaimed Cabasse iO2 speakers (on-wall & in-ceiling) & Santorin 25 subwoofer. The Yamaha RX-A870 is part of the AVENTAGE family of products meaning that it's higher quality internal components, enhanced design and UK tuning will draw every inch of performance from any media...be it music or video.
The basis of the speaker system is Cabasse's excellent and adpet iO2 5.1 on-wall system. The system is completed for the 'elevation' aspect of a 5.1.2 system with the flexible iO2 in-ceiling satellites - meaning that the entire package is timbre matched and voiced to perfection.
The Cabasse iO2 on-wall system is an ideal solution for medium sized rooms that only require the best, most absorbing and dynamic surround sound. The Cabasse iO2 on-walls & iO2 in-ceiling satellites are perfect for many respects in this 'object based audio' role, as they give a very wide open dispersion (virtually no standing waves thanks to the clever design), and their natural characteristic is to give detailed, wide and enveloping playback - so they really fill a room with dynamism and 'acoustic verve'.Both the on-wall and in-ceiling satellites are directional too - meaning that the on-wall speakers like the in-ceiling's can be maneuvered appropriately into the listening area extremely effectively also (the on-wall's have magnetic bases meaning the speakers can be rotated and moved accordingly for the best dynamic dispersal).
Only Cabasse's SCS (Spatially Coherent System) technology can give such a compact system the fundamental characteristics that all their speakers share: linearity, coherence, dynamics, power handling and absolute spatial coherency. Again the iO2's utilise Cabasse's immersive co-axial design for the speaker, enabling it to give a very wide sweet spot which makes these speakers ideal for filling a space with a very detailed and engaging sound-field.
The addition of the iO2 in-ceiling satellites as the 'elevation' option also enables a degree of placement flexibility as well - as the speakers can be rotated to angle the complete angle of the 'throw' into the desired listening area required for the elevation aspect within the set-up. This simple and easily adaptable feature means that they give you great options during and also after installation. Plus, this system is a complete, fantastic 5.1.2 system is one that exudes both sonic quality and design flair.
The lower end performance of the system is deftly dealt with by Cabasse's stunningly elegant Santorin 25 sub-woofer. The Santorin 25M2 has a very dexterous and dynamic 250 watt class D amplifier and is paired with Cabasse's 25cm down firing woofer, enabling it to span the low half of the acoustic range very effectively with a frequency response 34 – 150 Hz. The Santorin sub-woofers are tuned to work extremely harmoniously with any Cabasse satellite speaker, so if the requirement be a high quality multichannel or object based audio application, it will work in tandem beautifully with the iO2's in particular. It is in this department the the Santorin 25M2 will help any system sonically requiring lower end reinforcement, and especially those systems or custom installations that also require a stunning aesthetic to bolster a svelte or stylishly stealthy installation.
The Yamaha RX-A870 marks the first 'serious' step up in audio visual performance from the very adaptable new RX-A670, and despite the later ranges strengths - the Yamaha RX-A870 is a truly great 7 channel amplifier that any discerning home cinema installer would embrace.
