New from Cabasse is the StreamAMP, a compact four-channel amplifier. Centrally stored digital music files from downloads and CD rips can be streamed via the Wi-Fi or Ethernet connections, all controlled by the new Cabasse StreamCONTROL app for iOS and Android. Locally stored music from the tablet or smartphone can be accessed via Bluetooth and NFC and a high definition connection can be made using the StreamAMP’s Wi-Fi direct mode. The app also provides access to thousands of internet radio stations and control of both Deezer and Spotify which are built in to the system.
StreamAMP is fitted with four loudspeaker outputs, enabling stereo use with one or two pairs of loudspeakers or mono distribution with two or four groups of speakers. To meet the requirements of custom-installers for installation it is fitted with a silent fan for use in racks. The power optimisation impedance switch enables StreamAMP to serve as an all in-one-solution supplying music or radio programmes to up to eight Cabasse Archipel in-ceiling speakers.
The preamplifier section of StreamAMP also includes two analogue RCA inputs, an optical SPDIF input, a preamplifier output and a subwoofer RCA output.
Cabasse has also incorporated digital signal processing (DSP) in the StreamAMP, to provide integration with the current range of Cabasse speakers, wherever they are positioned in the room. Using the app, you can select which speakers are used and you can choose between a direct setting and various positional options: such as one metre or more from walls, against the back wall and one metre or more from side walls or placed in the corners. Price is £449
