I have one factory sealed Pair!
Founded in 1950 by Georges Cabasse, the Cabasse firm inherited not only its creator’s name, but also his genius. Georges Cabasse is from the world of music, and he is gifted with a special talent. He has a unique memory for sounds. Probably a gift from his ancestors, hailing back to a stringed instrument maker who crafted the first violin signed Cabasse in 1740 at Mirecourt in the Vosges Mountains. Five generations of craftsmen followed him, pursuing the tradition and supplying Europe with violins, violas and cellos, most of which are still being played in orchestras today.
The new Cabasse Minorca can be the final piece of the jigsaw puzzle within a multichannel MC40 series system (as surrounds or rear surrounds), or an equally adept set of bookshelf/stand-mount HiFi speakers.
Like the larger Java and it's smaller counterpart - the Minorca, is conventional looking in many ways in terms of it's appearance and form, but it is like any Cabasse speaker in that it is uniquely avant garde with it's exemplary sonic signature, exclusive technology and design.
Used as a set of surround speakers actually makes wonderful sense, as with the introduction of SCS high-end technology in this price segment, the Cabasse Minorca's invite you to discover a new sonic world rich of precision, realism and 3D sound stage which is perfect for convincingly delivering the diffuse nature of spatial effects. Fitted with the new BC10 2-way coaxial unit and twin 13 cm Duocell basee woofers, the 3-way MC40 speaker bring live sound emotion with elegance and unrivaled value.
The Minorca despite it's multichannel credentials (and especially that 'spatially coherent' delivery for surround effects), is like any other stereo Cabasse speaker in that it is highly musical and 'natural'. Listen to music in 5 channel stereo or in your desired setting in your cinema room and you will be suitably impressed by the speakers working together in tandem and time together. Cabasse products across the portfolio are about synergy and being consistent as they should being beautifully matched and voiced, guaranteeing that every piece of music or epic part of a film be delivered in absolute harmony, at one and in balance. The Cabrera is no exception to this rule, as you would expect.
The Cabasse Minorca's are agile, acute and accurate, and can be the strongest but deftest part of a multichannel chain - or the leading star in the stereo system...the choice or application can be yours.
These wonderfully impressive little speakers are available as a pair and finished beautifully in gloss black.
