Cabasse is expanding its Cabasse The Pearl line of connected speakers with the Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System, a set consisting of the smallest pair of Cabasse connected speakers and a connected subwoofer. A set that promises performance well beyond its size, with a total power of 1050 W RMS and sound worthy of the biggest models. The myriad of features remain unchanged from previous speakers in the range, with 32-bit/768kHz DLNA playback, a Bluetooth receiver and access to streaming services and web radios.
Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System: modern design
The Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System is particularly surprising as it offers a pair of spherical speakers measuring only 8cm in diameter. A format more compact and more discreet than ever before, which facilitates their integration into any living room. The satellite speakers and subwoofer have a resolutely modern and refined design inspired by the other speakers in the Cabasse The Pearl range. They rest on a raw steel stand, which has been cut, bent and then chromed to give them a refined and aerial design. The speaker cabinets require no less than 4 successive coats of matte paint to achieve a level of finish worthy of a master craftsman. Finally, a mounting system is integrated into the satellite speakers, allowing them to be placed flat or on the wall, with 5 adjustable positions.
Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System: new driver
The ultra compact design of the Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System speakers does not compromise the brand’s distinctive musicality. To achieve this, the French manufacturer has developed a new full-range driver. It features a patented ultra-thin 50 micrometer cone whose design ensures excellent power handling for a stunning dynamic range, especially considering the size of the speaker. This dynamic character is also due to the use of a powerful magnetic system with neodymium magnets.
Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System: 1050W RMS
Despite its compact and minimalist format, the Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System is very powerful thanks to the use of a 300W RMS (600W peak) module in each satellite speaker. The subwoofer has an output power of 450W RMS, allowing this 2.1 system to total more than 1050W RMS. Cabasse states that each amplification module is ideally calibrated and developed to get the most out of the associated driver. The use of exclusive DFE technology based on artificial intelligence allows dynamic analysis and adjustment in real time so that the sound is always balanced and natural, even at low volume. Finally, the CRCS (automatic room correction system) calibration, already used on previous Cabasse connected speakers, makes it possible to perform an acoustic calibration to adjust the reproduction according to the listening room.
Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System: streaming and Bluetooth
Once connected to the network by WiFi or Ethernet, the speakers of the Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System kit offer the same features as the Cabasse The Pearl Akoya and Cabasse The Pearl. You can enjoy DLNA playback, with support for most audio formats up to 32-bit/768kHz and DSD128. Access to many online music services such as Deezer, Spotify, Qobuz and Tidal is also possible, as well as the ability to listen to web radios. Finally, the Bluetooth module allows music to be streamed from a device not connected to the network.
Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System: optical and mini-jack
In addition to streaming, Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System speakers can also accommodate wired sources thanks to a Toslink optical input and a 3.5mm mini-jack input. The connection of a pre-amplified turntable, a CD player or an HD TV is therefore possible. A USB-A port is also available for reading files stored on a USB key or hard drive.
Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System: price & availability
The new Cabasse The Pearl Keshi 2.1 System speakers are now available for pre-order at a price of €2,490. The first deliveries are scheduled for mid-November.
