Cabasse and Parasound at Festival of Sound
Connected Distribution, exclusive UK distributors of high-end hi-fi from Cabasse, Parasound and Heed will be launching a number of new products at Festival of Sound from 28-30 September, London Novotel West, Hammersmith.
In room D7 Graves on the 2nd Floor of the Novotel London West, show visitors will get the opportunity to experience the latest products from Parasound and Cabasse, including the JC5 stereo power amplifier, JC3 JR phono pre-amplifier and Murano Alto loudspeakers.
The John Curl designed JC5 distils the essence of the top-of-the-line Halo JC 1 monoblock power amplifiers into a single stereo chassis. The design features a high power and ultra-high bias Class A/AB topography capable of delivering 400 watts per channel (8 ohms), or 600 watts per channel into 4 ohms and can also be bridged to mono for 1,200 watts into 8 ohms.
Building on the phenomenal success of the JC3+ phono pre-amp, the JC3 JRboasts a plethora of unrivalled features including 50 to 550 ohm continuously variable MC impedance, mono switch to improve the sound of older vinyl and a Carl Thompson designed circuit board. The JC3 JR specification boasts RIAA accuracy to within 0.2dB, S/N ratio up to 94dB and THD below 0.02%, making it a perfect audiophile choice at an affordable price.
Pre-amplifier duties will be handled by the respected Parasound JC2 BP.
Cabasse’s latest tower speaker, the Murano Alto is a high-end and high-performance loudspeaker that offers a big sound and the benefits of co-axial drive unit technology in a compact slim-line enclosure. Murano Alto uses technology trickled down from the Cabasse flagship products, such as the midrange-tweeter coaxial driver from the Cabasse masterpiece system, l’Océan, and two new designs of honeycomb membrane woofers, developed from La Sphère. The combination of such high-end components into a more compact loudspeaker make it possible for users of the Murano Alto to experience the effortless reproduction of music that Cabasse is famous for.
Mike Bonnette, Connected Distribution’s product director says “The combination of Parasound electronics and Cabasse loudspeakers is one which has been tried and tested across our network of dealers. The three new products from these respected brands, that we’ll be showcasing at Festival of Sound, work brilliantly together and we know the show visitors are going to really enjoy the sonic experience.” He adds, “We’re also working on some musical treats which will complement other attractions at the show. Watch this space and all will be revealed.”
Connected Distribution will be joined in the Graves Suite by equipment rack supplier Quadraspire and source components will be provided by Vertere Acoustics. Cabling will be courtesy of Russ Andrews and Kimber Kable.
