Cabasse Eole 3
Cabasse Eole 3
With a new design for improved esthetical and acoustical integration, the EOLE 3 system features all the acoustical qualities of any Cabasse system: efficiency, power handling, transparency and stability of the sound stage. Consisting in 5 new spherical satellites only 13 cm in diameter that swivel in every direction thanks to a magnetic base and a very compact subwoofer, EOLE 2 took advantage in many respects of the research investments made in developing La Sphère, the Cabasse 4-way coaxial reference speaker. Opera, jazz festival, rock concert, movies, be blown away by EOLE 3.

Home Cinema Choice Best Buy 4.5/5 Stars
The satellites have excellent cohesion between mid/bass and tweeter and avoid sounding like they are ‘beaming’ the sound to a particular sweet spot. The handover from speaker to speaker is seamless and each satellite will go impressively loud without sounding strained....More importantly, when you do ramp up your AVR while watching something with a bit of vigour – like the charmingly silly Dredd 3D – the Eole 3 sounds fun. It responds to the onscreen demands with real enthusiasm and drive. Bullets zing across the soundstage and while the Eole array retains an impressive sense of control and never tips over into harshness or brightness, it also manages to let go and raise a smile in a way its bigger brothers didn't.

AVForums Best Buy Award Score: 5/6
Genuinely excellent sonic performance. More than any sub/sat package I’ve listened to under £1,000, the Cabasse made me forget that I was listening to small speakers and simply enjoy watching the material they were playing. They have control, cohesion and detail that is truly top notch and they coped as admirably with the requirements of simple music in stereo as they did with a high octane gunfight in multichannel. They are beautifully made, perfectly inoffensive to look at and have mounting options sufficient to allow their use in almost any environment. This system is unquestionably a Best Buy. Excellent sound in multichannel and stereo, Excellent build.

The precision and acoustic quality of these small Eole greatly surprised me. The subwoofer did not deceive me and reproduces the sound with power and Realism...The Eole 3 system is seducing because of its design, small size, performance and is good value for money. This system will not only please wives, architects and interior designers
