Cabasse's smallest offering are miniature spheres only 4 inches in diameter.
The Alcyone 2 satellites feature all the acoustical qualities of any Cabasse system : efficiency, power handling, transparency and stability of the sound stage.
The Alcyone 2 satellite is fitted with a wide bandwith high-efficiency driver designed in the Cabasse Acoustic Centre in France - especially for the small spherical Alcyone enclosure.
Alcyone 2 satellites can either be placed on a shelf, mounted on the wall, or fixed atop the optional stands. The stylish yet flexible magnetic base can be used for shelf or wall mounting so the speaker can be easily oriented in any direction for ultimate flexibility.
Like their larger stable-mates the iO2's and the Eole 3's, these charmingly designed speakers will, when part of a 5.1 surround system or a 2.1 stereo system, give huge enjoyment and engagement sonically - no matter what the source material will be. So the Alcyone 2 will sound amazing with opera, jazz festival, rock concert, or movies.
The Alcyone 2's can be purchased individually or can be purchased within a complete 5.1 system. The 5.1 system consists of one Santorin 17M2 subwoofer (7’’woofer and 100 W amplifier), 5 satellites ready for bookshelf or on-wall use, and a complete set of interconnect cables.
A new in-ceiling adapterfor Alcyone 2 is now also available too, alongside an attractive floor mounted stand - both availabe seperately.
Please remember that these compact speakers do require a sub-woofer in any combination (2.1 or 5.1 etc.).
The Alcyone 2 (with base) is sold individually.
