Cabasse Arrives in Australia

Audio Visual Revolution, the Sydney based importer and distributors of premium audio brands including Audiolab, Nuforce, QED, Quad and Wharfedale among others, today announced their appointment as the sole Australian distributor of French specialist speaker brand Cabasse.

Based in the seaside city of Brest in Brittany in western France, Cabasse was founded in 1950 by Georges Cabasse, heir of five generations of stringed instruments craftsmen and with a unique memory for sounds, Cabasse has a singular obsession: the authentic reproduction of music to bring the true emotion of a concert into your home.

Tony Ingrisano, Product Manager for AVR told StereoNET:

Audio Visual Revolution prides itself in bringing Australian consumers class-leading products from the very best international brands. We firmly believe these products offer exceptional value and performance both to the end user as well as to our valued dealer network. They are the result of years (in some instances over 80 years) of research and development by specialist manufacturers and their respective engineering teams, who are totally focused on the audio visual category.

Cabasse is a welcome addition to our portfolio, and we look forward to developing the brand further in Australia.  Our first shipment of Cabasse stock arrives at the end of July, which will include the new and exciting Stream AMP.

From traditional speaker designs through to specialist custom installation products and technology embracing connected devices, innovations originating from the Cabasse Acoustic Centre benefit all Cabasse models, from the world reference La Sphere to the petite Stream 1.

Their relentless pursuit of excellence led to the development of Cabasse’s unique coaxial loudspeaker drive unit, a design that differs dramatically from the vast majority of coaxial units on the market having a ‘donut’ shaped mid range driver surrounding the soft dome tweeter, as opposed to the more conventional dome and cone arrangement.

Sold to Canon (Europe) in 2006, Cabasse was again sold to its current owners, French technology firm AwoX in 2014. This new partnership has led to even greater technological advancements with the introduction of some exiting wireless and streaming products.
