The Pearl Akoya derives its name from the tiny natural pearls discovered in Tahiti and the South Seas. It seamlessly integrates all the exceptional qualities of Cabasse's high-end connected solutions, offering unparalleled acoustic performance, including soundstage, stereo image, timbre, and more.
Pearl Akoya packs the traditional audio components - source device, amplifier, and speaker - into one ultra-compact form. Experience your favorite songs' dynamics and subtle nuances with this beautifully made sound system masterpiece. Exquisite craftsmanship is shown with the minimalistic white and black color that can blend into any interior.
Each speaker has one 5-inch coaxial BCI mid-high unit facing the front and one 7-inch HELD bass driver in the back.
The patented coaxial driver was designed initially by Georges Cabasse in 1952. It integrates mid and tweeter altogether, enabling all sound waves to emanate from a single source and propagate mid-high frequencies coherently and naturally, minimizing phase interference.
The HELD bass unit features a symmetrical underhung design that provides perfectly linear excursion and excellent power handling, ensuring that there is no clipping or distortion even at peak output.
The StreamCONTROL APP is developed and updated continuously by Cabasse to adapt to the rapidly evolving mobile platforms. It is a platform that offers a complete range of streaming services(Tidal, Qobuz, Deezer, Spotify), compatible with voice assistants and numerous control options. Simply connect Cabasse Pearl series to your indoor WiFi environment, then you can browse your music, podcasts, radios, and audiobooks all in one single application.
You may also connect with the speakers with Apple Airplay and Bluetooth wirelessly. When connecting with TV, the TV Direct mode in the APP allows you to obtain low latency and match audio to the image easily.
Every room has a different acoustic condition; some are difficult to deal with and can be a nightmare for traditional audio systems, but not for the Pearl series. Akoya features a Calibration Room Compensation System that solves the headache.
With a single touch in the StreamCONTROL APP, the integrated microphone inside Akoya automatically measures the room, identifies the problematic spectrums, and then Akoya compensates the acoustics with high-precision digital parametric filters, eventually obtaining optimal frequency responses in less than one minute.
The AI-controlled amplification that integrates DFE and DEAP delivers a sound signature that’s dynamic, natural, spacious, and precise. DFE and DEAP can be adjusted in the StreamCONTROL app. Dynamic Fidelity Enhancer allows the speaker to provide the same non-compromised music details for soft BGMs and a loud party. Digital Enhancement of Acoustical Performances provides optimized DSP profiles for different speaker placements in the room.
A single Akoya output for 1050W(Woofer 450W RMS, Mid 300W RMS, and tweeter 300W RMS). 2100W when used in pairs. The robust output provides ample deep bass extending to 30Hz in the compact form.
Cabasse multi-room management in StreamCONTROL APP offers unparalleled flexibility and control over your audio environment. Whether you're hosting a party, wanting different music genres in various rooms, or ensuring consistent sound levels throughout the house, this feature allows for tailored audio experiences in each space.
Moreover, multi-room management can create a cohesive audio landscape, seamlessly transitioning sound as you move from room to room. This capability enhances the auditory experience and provides a sophisticated and interconnected ambiance throughout your living space.
