Located at the core of JMR's range, the CANTABILE has always had a very strong attachment to its creator, epitomizing the sonic aesthetic so dear to JMR. Fluidity, nuance, spontaneity, agility and sophistication typify this compact speaker of a sober and timeless design. Its slim silhouette with its small top-mounted tweeter head overlooking the gracious proportion of its enclosure is typical of some of the most famous JMR productions and so is clearly identifiable.
Research and development conducted over the last few years in advanced fields of acoustics and electronics, have enabled JMR to achieve remarkable improvement in musical performance compared with just a few years back. The CANTABILE Jubilee has benefited from the results of this research achieving a remarkable degree of sound realism and maturity.
They have completely revised the crossover and have designed a new enclosure for the new particularly efficient silk dome tweeter. The shape of the tweeter enclosure has been optimized. The diameter of this enclosure has increased significantly and is positioned further back on the cabinet to allow ultra-precise dynamic phasing. Its length has been increased, and the curve of its profile softened. The low resonance frequency of the tweeter and its very low rate of distortion have enabled us to lower the crossover frequency to 3 kHz, thus increasing the speaker’s overall coherence. The slope of its 12dB/octave crossover offers a cross point with the medium driver at only 0.2 ° phase shift, and its directivity is particularly low. The crossover makes uses of the fewest possible components, making the Cantabile Jubilee much more reactive and even easier to drive than its predecessor. The entirety of the component values and their nature were reviewed to obtain a more alive and vivid speaker.
Although its size is ultra-compact for a floor stander loudspeaker, the CANTABILE Jubilee offers a particularly spacious, wide and deep soundstage which has incredible spatial accuracy. Performances unfold not only in width but also in height and reach, beyond the geometry of the enclosure. This new Cantabile remains unflappable: even when asked to handle very large differences in sound levels, there is no trace of projection or harshness. What we hear from the Jubilee Cantabile is light and shades: the tiny inflections of instrumental play naturally follow, without false light; transients are vivid and accurate without compromising the overall harmonic envelope.
Characteristic of all of the best JMRs, the CANTABILE Jubilee has a fast and perfectly controlled bass that never exaggerates. It remains perfectly tuned, providing sufficient energy for an average room, which has always been the Cantabile’s preferred and intended venue.
As agile and alert on a string quartet as more sonically demanding contemporary music, it offers the listener hours of listening without weariness or fatigue. Its level of performance enables it to be associated with quality amplifiers of moderate power. Furthermore, thanks to its very high quality, the CANTABILE Jubilee can be the centerpiece of a permanent installation of considerable sophistication.
