    Flemming Rasmussen Joins R&D team

    Audio Group Denmark, the parent company for Ansuz, Aavik and Børresen-Acoustics recently announced that one of greatest talents in history of the Hi-Fi industry; Flemming Rasmussen, has joined as a full time member of the design and development team.

    Flemming is best known as the charismatic founder of Gryphon Audio Design, one of the most influential high-end brands in Scandinavia – and the world.

    Over his 35 year tenure at Gryphon Flemming and team created a number of landmark products, most notably large power amplifiers such as The Antileon, Antileon Signature & later EVO which enjoyed a strong following in the global audiophile community.

    Flemming joins Audio Group Denmark at a time of extraordinary high growth for the company. I will be personally interested to see how Flemming’s creativity is unleashed.

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers



    AV Showrooms presents an interesting pairing of Thrax Audio Reference Components with the Borresen 05 speakers. I loved the music of the 3rd test track in this video, Ain't No Sunshine (Bill Withers) performed by Buddy Guy and featuring Tracy Chapman.

    I believe this system but with the Silver Supreme Edition of the Borresen 05 speakers, will be shown at the following upcoming shows:

    1) The Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF 2021), Oct 8-10, Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Aurora, Denver, CO. And

    2) The Capital Audiofest (CAF 2021), Washington DC's Premier High-End Audio Festival, Nov 5-7, Twinbrook Hilton, Rockville Maryland.

    Fingers crossed that the audio shows can proceed.

    Hi guys, after having listened to most of the Borresen line at Munich i will soon go to my Gryphon dealer to listen to a pair of Borresen 03s driven by a Gryphon Mephisto stereo, Thrax Dionysos linestage and EmmLabs DV2 DAC.
    Should be pretty spectacular.

    Ditto. They are the only speakers I'd consider trading in current pair for. Would love to hear more about peoples experiences with the line in general.

    Well unfortunately i was pretty disappointed about this demo, it sounded pretty bad.
    I think there was something wrong about the dealer's room acoustics and i told him.
    Far from what i have listened in the Borresen room at Munich 2019.
    I'm probably going to stay with my present speakers as i like them sooo much.

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    I am speculating here, but Mike could be implying that the Børresen speakers are not that great.

    Interesingly, the TAS review of the 05 mentioned a minor raise in midbass, in the 2022 Buyers Guide this has increased to an "irritating dollop of excess midbass". I am not knocking speakers I havent heard myself, it only goes to prove that you need to read between the lines in these reviews.

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    Speaking of reading between the lines, the one tidbit I've gleaned from multiple sources is that, while excellent, this first round of Borresen's are very room particular. I've taken this to mean that with the appropriate gear in a properly treated room, they are simply ambrosia (nectar of the Gods, not the fruit salad). I believe this stands to reason as the 01-05's are highly anticipated flagship pieces (various cryo treatments not withstanding) which serve to set the performance bar for Borresen speakers in general. Then they introduce a more accessible line where the consumer expects to get 80% of the performance at 1/2 the price. To this end, more Z reviews are required as I suspect they may be more forgiving.

    However, this is a very slippery slope in that, if the Z series (their true bread and butter) do not live up to expectations, long term success may be limited.

    Thanks. Was the bass the issue? The Mephisto might have been the wrong match. Was it bright? What was the issue?

    Yes i think the Mephisto was way too much power for the Borresen, very in your face, bass was insanely powerful, just too much pressure for the room and his room is not small.
    Very fatiguing in the long run.

    That’s exactly what I would have said. He needs much more linear amp. Dart, Goldmund or Sim if he’s on a budget. Perhaps CH, but reports on their bass are mixed.

    I have a HUNCH that BAT would be very good.

    IMO Audionet Humboldt would be the best match for Borresen 03s.
    Gryphon works best with difficult speakers like mine.

    Hi Mike,

    Could you please expand on your point of how specifically the Mephistos are not as linear as the Dart, Goldmund and CH amps?

    In particular, how the less linear characteristics of the Mephistos relative to the other amps are reflected (affect their performance) in specific frequency ranges?

    Thanks

    The Gryphon Mephisto’s are a bottom up amp. The bass is powerful and emphasized compared to the rest of the frequencies. They are a bass first amp. Every review speaks of the prodigious bass of this amp. I lived with the stereo version for almost 2 years. It was the same. It was a great pairing with some speakers, not great with others. Like pretty much every amp. A Dart/Goldmund/CH are more midrange out type of amps. Some owners have reported the CH can be quite lean on bass, but I’m sure that has to do more with the users selected adjusted feedback level or tolerance of such.

    No it was an official Gryphon dealer guys not a friend's place.
    Like Mike said perhaps the Mephisto is not a good match for Borresen speakers...

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    My Gryphon dealer is a new Borresen dealer, this might explain the bad amp match with the speakers.
    Anyway when i have time i'll go back for a listen and let you guys know.

    thx for the report. i used to be interested in the borresen 03. eventually demoed the 05 with theyr avaik electronic. sounded pure, very clean and resolving. imaging and precision was outstanding.
    however, overall not my cup of tea. not easy for the brain, similar to headphones.
    might be the characteristics of ribbon drivers. didnt really get warm with the göbel speakers either.
    next to the borresen system was the tidal akira with tidal amplification. the akira has both the tweeter and midrange made out of diomond....so it was very resolving too, however it sounded pleasant and rich. much prefered it over the borresen.
    my take is the 05 is a racehorse with very high potential. one probably needs time and knowledge to tune it to his preferences. left side of magico. good luck whoever

    Would be worth demoing Borresens with a good tube rig like VAC or Aries Cerat, would probably be more engaging.

    as per my dealer, the 05 silver supreme needs stable and powerful amps, otherwise the bass is collapsing.
    dont know if it is the same for the 03.

    I’ve often wondered what Borresen speakers would sound like driven by higher power VAC amps. I imagine it would be fabulous.

    My experience with the O-series Borresen speakers is that while powerful amplifiers can be a positive contribution [I note the in-house Aavik brand is 300Wpc!], its quality that’s really important because the speakers are very revealing.

    Audio Group Denmark @ Munich 2022

    Audio Group Denmark together with its brands; Ansuz, Aavik and Børresen will be exhibiting at the forthcoming High End Munich 2022 Tradeshow (Munich, May 19-22, 2022).

    They can be found in Hall 4, room T04 and U03, located near the main entrance.

    Their entire sales team, including Lars Kristensen, and representatives from the design and development team, including Michael Børresen and Flemming Erik Rasmussen, will be present.

    According to Emil Kristensen, Audio Group Denmark will be displaying a new line up of products; The Aavik I-880 & C+P 880 amplifiers, Ansuz D-TC Gold Signature cables and Børresen X-3 and M1 loudspeakers.


    New Product Releases


    Aavik 880 Series Amplification The much awaited collaboration between Flemming Erik Rasmussen, formerly of Gryphon Audio and Michael Børresen.

    Available as a super integrated (I-880) and the pre-power combination (C + P 880) the Aavik 880 series is high powered class A amplifier. What else would you expect from Flemming?









    M1 Loudspeaker – Borresen’s latest all-out assault in loudspeaker design, featuring new driver materials and further refinements to Borresen’s magnet motor system and speaker basket. The M-Series will be Borresen's new top of range loudspeaker design, with the M1 being the smallest, a standmount, similar in scale to the successful B-01.


    PHOTO: The new Borresen M-1 loudspeaker. The new M1 also features all the benefits of the Børresen 0 Series. These include the patented iron-free Børresen magnet motor system, which has now been further refined.


    X Loudspeaker Series – a new more affordable series, the X speakers will feature carbon fiber reinforced cabinets, state-of-the-art drivers, Spread Tow Carbon and honeycomb cones. The X-Series will be Borresen's new entry level loudspeaker range.

    Kiwi, any idea on the price for the new M1 Loudspeakers?

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    Where are they getting the funding to keep pumping models out? Im sure the sales figures do not support this kind of continued investment.

    Hello Ken,

    The Børresen Acoustics brand is significantly increasing its loudspeaker product range.

    The new hierarchy is:

    X-Series [New entry level range, most affordable]

    Z-Series

    O-Series

    M-Series [New top of range]


    The M-1 pictured below beside the Borreson 01 [O-Series] is being launched at High End Munich 22 today, 19th May. Pricing will be released at the show but you can always hit Tyler up for US market pricing.

    Audio Group Denmark @ Munich 2022

    Apologies for the low quality photos, they come of a video feed. Audio Group Denmark has two rooms at the show.

    One room is showing a prototype of the new Borresen M1 stand mount loudspeaker. Music is being streamed via an Aavik S-580 streamer and D-580 DAC and feed to the new Aavik-880 200W Class A amplifier. Brand new cabling from Ansuz is also used – D TC Gold Signature cables.

    The second room is showing a pair of new Borresen X-3 floor standing loudspeakers.

    I've just received the Z1's and the Aavik U-180 for a review on audio-activity.com
    I'm listening the loudspeakers with my Audionet Humboldt, to begin. The sound seems really great!

    the cash from the shares will go to lars and michaels pockes, not to audio group denmark, and it is a strong sign the company is not doing well profit wise.

    the investors

    they seem to be attracted to engineers, hoping for the breakthrough. not sure what they could help down the road, apart from putting a few questions at theyr meetings.

    however, i do wish all the best for everyone. i do like the design of the m1 and the x3 is priced very comfortable at 10k a pair.

    The investment from Vækst-Invest, an investment bank and private capital fund, is largely about scaling the Audio Group Denmark business by funding on-going product developments.

    I don’t know all the details but among the advantages of private equity is access to alternate forms of capital for entrepreneurs and the freeing the company founders (Lar’s and Michael) to focus on sales and design.

    What I do know is that the impact of the investment can be seen in the avalanche of new products. Two new loudspeaker series (an entry level X-series and new top of the range M-series), a new top of range series of Aavik Amplifiers (880 series, Class A, co-designed with Flemming Rasmussen formerly of Gryphon Audio); a new top of range cable series (Ansuz D TC Gold Signature cables), a new top of the range Ansuz Mainz8 DTC-3 distributor and soon to be launched another new brand to complement the existing Audio Group Denmark brands Børresen, Aavik and Ansuz. The new brand is called Axxess.

    It does appear that investment by Vækst-Invest is about scaling the group business by dramatically increasing the product range breadth and depth and thus increase the addressable market and by extension the potential reseller and customer base. The value of the investment banks shares will rise with the increase in group revenue and profitability. Make no mistake, investment banks are in the business of investing in entities they are confident they can get a return on – so the investment is a vote of confidence in Lars Kristensen, Michael Børresen and the Audio Group Denmark teams execution on marketing, manufacturing and product development.

    I like watching the fun theyre having, but thankfully its not being done with my money. I have seen the pricesheets for them and their pricing is insane, the build and finish quality is also nowhere near where it should be… how do they sound? Costing and looking the way they do? who cares.
