Cabasse, the French loudspeaker manufacturer, is introducing the Stream 1 and Stream Source wireless music streaming products. With the ability to stream from networks, tablets and phones and turn any connected USB drive into a DLNA server.
Stream 1 is a compact, standalone, streaming music playback system with built-in Cabasse speakers and amplifiers, that builds on the company’s first network music product, the Stream 3. Designed to be freestanding, either horizontally or vertically, or wall mounted, the pebble shaped 14cm x 46cm x 32cm (H W D) is available in glossy white or black.
Stream 1 plays music stored on a network, tablet or smartphone via Wi-Fi, Ethernet or Bluetooth, and is controlled by the Cabasse app for iOS or Android.
Built-in automatic DLNA server software enables any directly connected USB stick or hard drive to be made available to the whole network, for playback on any other Stream players, alleviating the necessity for complex server configuration.
The Stream Source allows people to take advantage of Cabasse’s streaming technology through an existing hi-fi system. The stand-alone unit, also pebble shaped and just 4cm x 23cm x 14cm (H W D) in size. Digital to analogue converters take the digital signal from the network in file formats from MP3 to 96kHz FLAC and present them to the hi-fi for playback through the existing speakers. As with the Stream 1, Bluetooth connectivity is possible with smartphones or tablets using the APTX codec for higher quality reproduction of the music stored on the device. Similarly, embedded DLNA software enables the music on any directly connected USB drive to be instantly made available across the network.
