Audio Group Denmark, the parent company of high-end audio brand Børresen, has unveiled its latest innovation - the Børresen X1 stand-mounted loudspeaker. Designed to deliver exceptional sound quality without compromising on aesthetic appeal, the X1 represents the entry point into Børresen's esteemed loudspeaker universe.
With a price tag of $5,500 per pair, the Børresen X1 stands as Audio Group Denmark's smallest and most affordable loudspeaker offering, yet it packs a punch in terms of performance and innovation.
Positioned as the introductory model in the X-Series lineup, which includes the X2, X3, and X6 floorstanding counterparts, the X1 aims to cater to music enthusiasts seeking premium sound reproduction in a compact form factor.
At the core of the Børresen X1 lies a fusion of cutting-edge technologies derived from Børresen's acclaimed M, O, and Z loudspeaker series. The speaker features the exclusive Børresen X-Series ribbon tweeter and a 4.5-inch Børresen X-Series speaker driver, meticulously engineered to deliver a rich, detailed, and dynamic soundstage.
One of the key highlights of the X1 is its utilization of innovative materials and construction techniques to achieve optimal performance. The speaker's cabinet is constructed from a heavily braced wood composite material, augmented with carbon fiber inserts, to minimize sound distortion and mechanical influences.
Additionally, the X1 incorporates a stand and foot crafted from a natural-based composite material, ensuring resonance control and staying true to Børresen's design ethos.
The X1's design language reflects a blend of sophistication and functionality, with a sleek and compact profile that seamlessly integrates into any home environment. Available in black or white piano lacquer finishes, the X1 exudes elegance while delivering an immersive sonic experience.
“The X1 is a testament to our dedication to pushing the boundaries of audio excellence. We’ve engineered a compact loudspeaker that doesn’t compromise on delivering an immersive and emotional musical experience,” says Michael Børresen.
The X1 also inherits several advanced technologies from its higher-tier counterparts, including the use of Spread-Tow carbon membrane technology and copper caps in the magnetic motor system. These innovations contribute to the speaker's exceptional performance, characterized by maximum stiffness, reduced noise, and improved flux control.
