We have the cabasse unit with the standard "cabasse" speakers - for a std fit the sound is pretty good,cds especially sound really good, my only criticism would be a slight lack of bass.

As you have upgraded the speakers in your car already you would probably notice less of a difference in the sound quality.
The advanatage of the higher power amp is that you will get less distortion, so you will be able to increase bass,treble controls and volume more. The amplifier in the cabasse unit is, apparently a better quality one, not just more powerful.

We had a Dynamique Laguna loan car with the standard unit and speakers - sounded ok, but the cabasse unit has a definite edge. But that may be down to the speakers, because a dynamique only has std speakers.
