Cabasse UK Cabasse distributor Connected Distribution is introducing the Pearl Sub, a connected active subwoofer, to partner its iO3, Riga 2 and Baltic 5 speakers as a 2.1 solution. It employs a 25cm carbon fibre woofer, with 30mm linear excursion and 1000W (RMS) power plant. In addition to the high-power sub amp, the left and right channels in a 2.1 system each benefit from 300W amplifiers.

The 320mm, reinforced double shell of the sphere is sprayed with four coats of matte paint to achieve a premium finish. A silver trim ring and a magnetic grille featuring the Cabasse logo join a folded chrome-plated steel base that effectively suspends it in the air.

The three partnering speakers have also undergone improvements and upgrades, says Cabasse. The Baltic 5 is the only three-way coaxial satellite loudspeaker available. This fifth-generation version is equipped with a triaxial TCA loudspeaker taken from the Cabasse flagship, La Sphère.

The Riga 2 is a compact satellite speaker equipped with a 17cm coaxial driver for movies and music, while the iO3 is the latest version of the brand’s best-seller.

The entire system is calibrated using Cabasse’s DEAP and CRCS technologies and integrates into the Cabasse Stream CONTROL multi-room system. In addition to the Stream CONTROL app the Pearl Sub is supplied with a Bluetooth remote control, for volume, input, play and pause control. The entire system can also be controlled using Google Voice Assistant.

Built-in streaming allows the user to connect to services such as Qobuz, Deezer, Spotify, and Tidal. Connections include digital optical, analogue, Ethernet, USB connectors and Bluetooth.

File playback runs the gamut from MP3 to ultra-high-definition FLAC files. The DAC is capable of decoding signals up to 768kHz/32bits.

Each of the satellite speaker models come in a variety of finishes: black stand with a black base; wood stand with a black base; black stand with a white base and a wood stand with a matt white base.

The Pearl Sub retails for £3,499. The Pearl Sub + iO3, Pearl Sub + Riga 2 and Pearl Sub + Baltic 5 sell for £5,299. £9,499 and £12,499 respectively.
