Cabasse speakers: The eyeballs have it

Judging by their looks, we suspect an alien invasion.


We should have known this was coming. It's been months since we last heard from Cabasse, the French loudspeaker specialist--or, at least, that's what they claim to be. In reality, we suspect it's a front for a growing population of aliens that have taken the form of eyeballs.

The latest pair of ostensible speakers, the 5.1 "Eole" system, features five "spherical satellites" (translation: UFOs) with a 250-watt amplifier and 8-inch woofer. It's based on the design of Cabasse's $150,000 "La Sphere," including its orb-like shape, Gizmag says.

In trying to win over the masses, the Eole is being offered "at a fraction of the cost" of its predecessor--a price that still comes to $3,000. Which shows that invaders from outer space haven't quite grasped the concept of human affordability.
