    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    I tried many integrated with my Raidho D1.1 speakers (before) and now with my new Børresen 01. Vitus class A and class AB, CH precision, Aavik 300 and others... But the most synergy I found with the Børresen 01 is the darTZeel 8550, simply magical!!! The warm and big sound of the 8550 gives a full sound to the "little" 01 speakers...

    The darTZeel is very nice. Not surprised it is a great match for your B 01s. Enjoy!

    glad you find your pairing. the amp makes the music and the synergy with the speaker is the most critical part of higher level systems imho.

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    Yes! -20 db -18 db generally my volume listening level, not the same with the Raidho D1.1...
    Jazz and vocal is my preferred genre of music and I don't listen too loud...but this speakers even with rock give a realistic impact...

    I guess Borresen dealers are considered an essential service and covid-19 hasn’t closed them down.
    Just jealous myself.

    Larry, hope you are well. I believe the Netherlands is not in a state of full lockdown. I’ve read there is a ban on all public gatherings and rules on social distancing. As long as you keep a minimum 1.5m between you and the Borresen’s all is good.

    Nice. What did you think of the Borresen 03 / EMM Labs MTRX2 1KW Monobloc Amplifier combo, assuming that’s what you were listening to?

    Disclaimer: I don't want to give any wrong impressions and I might be wrong
    To be honest that is not so easy to answer. The speakers are relatively new. As far as I know they have less then 100 hours on them. The 03 reminded me a lot of the Raidho D3, not sure if I would be able to tell them apart. The 03 are very open, that tweeters is very good. Mids and lows are very precise, the acoustics of the room is not ideal for the lowest of frequencies. I spend about an hour listening to the speakers. I've heard the YG Hailey series 1 on this set before. Where IMHO the YGs are more lively and dynamic, the Borrenson are more accurate, precise. But I have a sneaky suspicion this is on part because the YGs are sealed and have less problems with the room. An early conclusion would be that the 03s are a top speakers IF you have a room that is acoustically in balance.

    The EMM labs mono blocks they are something special. I've never heard anything that sound so effortless. Utter control without sounding too present. I've heard BIG mono blocks that were very expensive at a show. That sounded like they wanted to be heard and let you know that they are expensive. The EMM labs are just there and do everything perfectly.

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    Wen I listened first time the Børresen 01 at my dealer I didn't like, very dry sound and not so involving me in the music, I had the Raidho D1.1 at that time... Than, after 300 hours burning in the shop, they sound better, and after 100 hours more, better and better... I tried them at home and I bought!!! Now, after 500 hours they sound simply fantastic. I sold my D1.1... I suppose that the bigger 03 need even more hours to shine... I listened them in the shop and I loved, but they are too big for my listening room...

    The only Børresen I haven't heard ... it seems to me that 01, 02 and 03 each sound very differently ...

    Large difference between 03 and 05, if I have to put into words, the "scale" is getting larger in all aspects.

    We only had an initial listening session, speakers are brand new out of the box, they will need time to fully settle.
