Borresen Loudspeakers

Had the opportunity to attend the launch event of the Borresen X1 loudspeakers last night in Chicago @nextlevelhifi ​​​​​with @jays_audio_lab. From their M6 at $550k per pair all the way down to the newly launched X1 speakers last night at $5500 your ears will smile. Amazing what a 4.5” driver can do. If you are in the market for any price range speaker about $5,000 and up you have to hear these. Imaging is 3 dimensional, larger than life soundstage and just absolutely stunning performance with a look that will fit any room. This manufacturer out of Denmark really gets it and I don’t care what price point you are looking at these speakers will out perform speakers double the price.  If you are buying speakers up to $25k you have to hear their $11k option.  The rep for Borresen is hitting all the shows/events over the next several months in the US. Oh, and by the way, I loved the X1 so much I bought the first pair that will ship to me in early March!

I heard their big room and their small room with the small ones ( ? X1s) at CAF.  They certainly are impressive and incisive, but hurt my ears after a bit.  Maybe their electronics and their speakers together, but a bit too much for me.

I purchased the Borresen x3's. Have had them a week now. There just starting to open up a bit. The bass is actually pretty good considering the 4.5 bass drivers. I'm very happy with my purchase. 

I auditioned the Raidho's vs Magico and preferred the Raidho's.  I ended up buying the XT-2's.  They are fantastic.  Incredible bass for their size and the drivers size.  But the midrange and treble is incredible.  Playing early Beatles with an Oppo 105D has John Lennon singing in my room.  So lifelike.  No one can criticize Borresen without hearing the speakers first.



Thanks for sharing. I'm excited for you. I watched Jay's entire two and a half hour video. Jay has owned many speakers from some of the top brands - Magico, Wilson, Focal, among many others. He said the system at last night's event, featuring the flagship M6s, was the best he's ever heard. After you break in your X1s, please come back and share your impressions. (Btw, the rep from AGD said those 4.5" drivers require a lot of break-in time.)

Yep - Jay has said it is the best he’s heard and he currently owns a $360k Wilson Audio loudspeaker. How’s that for being unbiased ?

Stay tuned - a video will follow over the next few weeks about my time with the Borresen M6. 
ps - I can’t afford the m6 Borresen but I won’t hate on those of you who can buy it. 
I have to remain objective and tell it like it is. 
No - I won’t become a Borresen dealer today , tomorrow or next year but I also can’t predict where I’ll be 5 years from now. 
Thank you for the support guys!
