The Cabasse Santorin 21M2 is a very gracious looking free standing sub-woofer.
More familiarly paired or seen with the Eole 3's within the 'Pack Eole 3' home cinema system, it can also be purchased alone to accompany any set of Cabasse satellite speakers (For instance Alcyone 2's, Eole 3's or iO2's).
The Santorin sub-woofers are tuned to work extremely harmoniously with any Cabasse satellite, so if the requirement be a stereo zone or a multichannel application it will work in tandem beautifully. If the zone requirement is a 2.1 system - then the speakers in that zone can be paired directly to the Santorin 21M2 subwoofer, as the Santorin has dedicated high level outputs for these applications. The input signal can be feed into the sub-woofer via high level inputs in this scenario too, meaning that it can sit only any platform where high level connectivity is required.
If the Santorin 21M2 is required as a stand-alone sub-woofer, then of course it won't fail to disappoint in this department either paired with Cabasee speakers or not - it will help any system sonically requiring lower end reinforcement. The Santorin 21M2 has a very dextrous and dynamic 200 watt class D amplifier and is paired with Cabasse's 21cm down firing woofer, enabling it to reach down to a satisfyingly low 29hz - despite it's almost delicate size (well in sub parlance).
As with all Cabasse products the Santorin 21M2 sub-woofer exudes the best quality finish of all their class-leading products, being available in a stunning and luxurious gloss white or gloss black finish.
Even if you don't have any Cabasse speakers, no one would blame you if you'd be temepted by a sub?
