The French Cabasse is set to launch the soundbar Stream BAR presented at CES 2016. This model is part of the ecosystem multi-room Cabasse. You can then connect the soundbar to other products of the Stream range, so as to form a system able to spread the sound in various rooms of the house.
Within the Stream BAR contains six transducers: there are two tweeters and four midrange. The amplifier section is capable of delivering 80W. To complete the budget is a wireless subwoofer 100W. The soundbar is connected to the TV via an HDMI output with ARC (Audio Return Channel: in this way the sound can travel in both directions). To complete the budget they have Ethernet connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with aptX, a USB port and an analog input of a 3.5 mm jack.
Stream BAR supports playback of files through DLNA, USB, Internet radio and streaming services such as Deezer, Spotify or Tidal. Obviously not miss the now ubiquitous app (Stream Control) to control the soundbar via iOS and Android devices. Availability is scheduled for September in the UK. The price will be around about 899 pounds (just over 1,000 euros).
