Cabasse iO2 Review: Absolute spatial coherence

885e239ec29ef5c301ccf441bd7fb9c0
TOTAL SCORE:

Inspired by the successful and popular Baltic series spherical loudspeakers, the even more compact iO2 sound balls use exactly the same Cabasse (Spatially Coherent System) proprietary principle of spatial coherence.

The spherical housing, mounted on a designer stand, houses a 2-way coaxial driver, consisting of a 2.7 mm Kaladex dome tweeter and a 13 cm Duocell midrange / woofer.

Only SCS technology was able to provide such a compact system with the fundamental parameters inherent in all our loudspeaker systems: linearity, dynamics and power output, absolute spatial coherence.

Despite their tiny size, the iO2 spherical heads deliver unrivaled sound quality for their price point. Whether in the living room or in the recording studio, as part of a stereo system or multi-channel home theater, they offer a striking sense of presence at the music venue while unobtrusively intruding into the interior.

All of this is made possible by Cabasse’s many years of experience in coaxial point sources.

Cabasse iO2 loudspeakers can be purchased both with matching stands, and on special stands – for installation on a shelf or for hanging on a wall or ceiling.

The Cabasse Santorin 25 M2 is a state of the art floorstanding subwoofer capable of delivering up to 250 watts of nominal output power. Small dimensions, classic minimalistic design and well thought-out design allow this model to fit perfectly into the room and complement the sound of home acoustics with spatial and high-quality bass.

The use of SCS technology allows this speaker to work with the same excellent characteristics as the “older” models of the subwoofers of this manufacturer.

This is excellent power, and linearity of sound, and the use of magnetic shielding. In addition, there are several accommodation options. For example, one of them provides for placement directly on the floor, and the second makes it possible to install the subwoofer on furniture or a wall.

For this, special fasteners are provided. The subwoofer includes a 25cm woofer 25S20, and line in and out are available from the interfaces.
