At this weekend’s National Audio Show, The Multi-Room Company will be presenting the UK show premieres of key new products from three of its high quality audio brands, with the Cabasse Murano, Cabasse Surf, Cabasse Stream, Parasound Hint and Heed Elixir on demonstration.
15 September 2015
The new high-end stand mount speaker from Cabasse, the Murano, paired with the Parasound Halo integrated amplifier, the Hint, will be on loan to Russ Andrews Accessories who will be using the pairing in the company’s room. Murano is the smallest full range speaker in the Artis high-end series and benefits from innovations initially developed for the reference La Sphère. The co-axial midrange tweeter and technologies incorporated in the woofer, combine to generate the best possible sound quality and performance for a speaker of its size. The Parasound Hint is packed full of features, including a high-resolution DSD DAC; MM/MC phono stage; balanced XLRs; analogue bass management and 160-watts per channel of John Curl designed amplifier topology. The Hint is the perfect choice for two channel and home cinema enthusiasts wanting the performance of a pre-power combination from a single product and will partner superbly with the Cabasse Murano.
The Cabasse Stream AMP and its partnering Surf loudspeakers will join the Heed Elixir integrated amplifier as part of the equipment used by AudioQuest in its “Computer Audio Demystified” seminar sessions. The Stream AMP and Surf combination is a simple and very cost effective streamer, amplifier and speaker combination that opens up the world of Deezer, Spotify, internet radio and network stored audio in a compact and easy to use package. It will take centre stage in the seminar presentations as Nick Allen from AudioQuest demonstrates how to put together a streaming audio system.
Heed’s new integrated amplifier, the Elixir, will also be used by Nick to demonstrate how to integrate a stand-alone streamer, the Cabasse Stream Source, into an existing hi-fi system. The Elixir is a compact five-input integrated amplifier with built-in phono stage and dedicated headphone amplifier, that is designed to provide the renowned Heed sound quality in a one-box solution.
Mike Bonette, product director for The Multi-Room Company, comments, “We are very pleased to be able to unveil a plethora of new products at the National Audio Show. In addition to the static display of Cabasse, Parasound and Heed in the Clarity Alliance Showcase, we’ve worked with our colleagues from Russ Andrews and AudioQuest to provide opportunities for show visitors to hear some of these amazing products.” He continues, “We look forward to meeting the music lovers and audiophiles at the show and getting the chance to talk about the brands and the new products. And don’t forget to visit the ‘Queen: The Studio Collection’ presentation where our Parasound JC3+ phono stage will be used for this UK exclusive playback of the new box set.”
