Cabasse Stream 1: This Weird Oyster Sounds Fantastic

French audio company Cabasse is back with its Stream range, this time updating the range to feature better sound than ever.

Meet the Stream 1. It’s an active wireless speaker shaped like a fashionable oyster. It’s a three-way system that orients in three different positions: wall-mounted, free-standing or resting flat on its feet. You’ve got a tweeter, mid-range speaker and woofer under the base all packed into a new, slimmer design to make it all work acoustically.

The speaker design throws sound out across 360-degrees, and it has been designed so that no matter where you put it in the room, it sounds textured and deep.

It’s packing a bunch of connectivity options, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, DLNA, NFC and USB. Cabasse wanted to make DLNA more accessible to people who have no freaking idea what it is with this new model, so it’s turning pretty much every input into a DLNA server when connected. Everything from your mobile device through to a USB stick plugged into the rear becomes a DLNA server. There are also step-by-step guides on set-up so you can figure out how to get the best sound out of it, even if you don’t know what that sounds like.

It’s designed to be multi-room compatible with other Cabasse products, and the app for that one is coming out in November.

The Cabasse Stream 1 will cost $999 and it will be distributed by International Dynamics.
