I personally know both the head of Cabasse North America and the head sales rep...and the other day the sales rep got his new speakers in...3 Cabasse Artis Ambrose II's (L, R, and center). He's running these off a new 5 channel Butler tube amp. He also got a new 2 channel Butler tube amp that he bridged into one channel for his Cabasse 55ND subwoofer (20 2/3 inches!) that he had a custom box built for (Roman Audio did that bit for him). All I can say is WOW. The Ambrose II's sound amazing...espicially on dialouge. I don't know how many Cabasse dealers are around that actually have Artis stuff on display, but if you're near one, you need to go listen just for the experience. The (almost) 21" sub was even more impressive...I expected it to be really loud and slow, as are most big subwoofers, espicially since it isn't servo controlled. Boy was I suprised. That thing is the cleanest sounding subwoofer I've EVER heard...its speed was amazing. Anyway, I just thought I'd let everyone know about this stuff since there doesn't seem to be much about Cabasse out there yet. I've been stuck on Cabasse ever since I heard the Ki speakers of which I'm getting a pair of....can't wait!
