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!

woots: Any idea when your X1 are supposed to make it to the States? I heard first batch of X1s is at the end of March or beginning of April. 

@gandalf originally was told early March but I’m a realist when it comes to new production so I’m thinking sometime early April.  I’m sure @nextlevelhifi wants to be demoing and shipping these at the Axpona event in Chicago in April.  Did you order a pair as well?

Congrats on the X1s gents!  Loving my X2s.  Originally wanted white X2s but they we're on back order until end of March and couldn't wait and got the piano black instead.  Turns out actually now glad I got the black ones as these speakers just disappear.  Look forward to hearing what you think about the X1s.  Did you get the stands as well?   

@scslite I did not get the stands as they are going on a stand in my office. Unfortunately my office door gets in the way of using stands. 

woots: Like you I am a speaker whore! ;) I ordered a pair heard the X3’s almost bought a used pair from a guy in St. Louis they were white and they wouldn’t have worked in my room, WAF factor kicked in. Easier to hide and move around a monitor verses a floor-stander. ;) I got the stands as well, using a pair of Audio Physic Spark speakers, which I really like, I will let them burn in before I compare, as I will be keeping only 1 pair down the road.
