Unbelievable. That was my first thought after hearing the "Pearl" from Cabasse for the first time at the ATR booth of this year's High End show in Munich. Everyone was searching for the subwoofer that apparently supported the presentation. In vain, because there wasn't one. Hardly bigger than a basketball mounted on a three-legged steel stand, of course either in black or white with aluminum brackets, the Pearls from Northern France did not only attract attention. Also they built an enormous stage with overwhelming depth staggering and underlined the effortlessly detailed as well as dynamic performance with a bass as low as it is otherwise just known from speakers the size of a vending machine. What?
