Connected Distribution, the exclusive UK Cabasse distributor, is introducing The Pearl Sub, a 2.1 connected active subwoofer with DSP sound and room optimisation and high-resolution music streaming.

The Pearl Sub follows the global release of the Pearl and Pearl Akoya streaming speakers, sharing the familiar Cabasse spherical form and incorporating high resolution streaming capabilities. Containing all the amplification for a 2.1 system, it has been designed to partner the firm’s iO3, Riga 2 and Baltic 5 speakers.

25cm Woofer

A 25cm carbon fibre woofer, with 30mm linear excursion and 1000 watts (RMS) provides deep bass. In addition to the high-power sub amp, the left and right channels each benefit from 300W (RMS) amplifiers. The entire system is calibrated using Cabasse’s DEAP and CRCS technologies, optimising the signal according to which speakers are connected and providing room correction for the low frequency performance.

Qobuz, Deezer, Spotify, Tidal

The 2.1 system is a complete hifi. Its built-in streaming allows the user to connect to services such as Qobuz, Deezer, Spotify, Tidal, etc. The Pearl Sub includes digital optical, RCA analogue, Ethernet, USB connectors and Bluetooth to facilitate use of external sources such as a turntable, or to access music stored on a network or phone. It integrates perfectly into the Cabasse Stream CONTROL multi-room system and allows playback of all types of audio files: from MP3 to ultra-high-definition FLAC files, whether they are stored on hard drives, streamed from internet radio or from online music services. The high-quality DAC is capable of decoding signals up to 768kHz/32bits.
