Win a Cabasse Stream Source to experience its high-res streaming, Spotify and an instant DLNA server
To celebrate the addition of the Cabasse range of loudspeakers and streaming products to The Multi-Room Company’s portfolio we are giving you the opportunity to win the new Stream Source high fidelity wireless music streamer, to try it for yourself and see why it will be a must have for your installations.
Cabasse, France based manufacturer of loudspeakers, has been designing and building cutting edge speakers since 1950. Introducing some of the first active speakers and perfecting the concept of the coaxial drive unit in a way that overcomes the disadvantages of traditional coaxial ‘tweeter in the middle of the cone’ design – making them perfect for custom installation and home cinema use.
As a result of the company’s recent ownership by the AwoX group, another French business that was at the heart of the development of DLNA technology, Cabasse has created a range of streaming audio products that take its audio and acoustic excellence and combine them with the very latest in streaming technology.
The diminutive stand-alone Stream Source is pebble shaped and just 4cm x 23cm x 14cm (H W D) in size. Beautifully crafted as a visually stunning piece, it brings the connectivity to the main audio system in the house. High quality digital to analogue converters take the digital signal from the NAS (network attached storage) drives in file formats from MP3 to 96kHz high resolution FLAC and presents them in the best possible quality to the hi-fi or distributed audio system for playback through the speakers. Instant NFC Bluetooth connectivity is possible with smartphones or tablets using the APTX codec for higher quality reproduction of the music stored on the device.
And to act as the streaming hub of a domestic installation, the Stream Source also contains DLNA server technology that enables the music on any directly connected USB drive to be instantly made available across the network, for playback via Smart TVs and other compatible renderers.
All Cabasse streaming products are compatible with MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC, AIFF, ALAC and FLAC file formats and contain both the vTuner module, for access to thousands of internet radio stations and also Spotify and Deezer support for instant access to millions of online songs. The intuitive and free Cabasse StreamCONTROL app for iOS and Android enables easy access and navigation of your desired audio.
Introducing the products, Mike Bonnette, product director for The Multi-Room Company comments, “The addition of the Stream range allows our installer customers to provide top quality streaming audio solutions to end users in a very simple to install and use package. And with proper margins, far higher than those offered on many other brands, the installer can confidently specify the Cabasse streamers in the knowledge that not only are they installing a robust and high quality product, but they are not reducing the overall margin of the installation.
“The only way to really see how well these products work is, of course, to try one. That is why we have launched a competition on our facebook page to win a Stream Source and I would urge all of our customers to enter. The lucky winner will be able to see for themselves just how simple the product is to install and how good it sounds. And for everyone else, we’ll happily pay you a visit with the entire Cabasse Stream range so you can experience it and start specifying it for your customers’ installations.”
