    Congrats on the custom color Borresen O3 Silver Supreme Edition special Jeff.

    They look amazing!

    What's the rest of the system? Is that an Aavik box I glimpse sitting on the shelf?

    Borresen X3 Loudspeaker




    PHOTO: The Borresen X3 speakers at Audio Maestro, Singapore. My thanks to Kenny Lim


    In a recent visit to Audio Maestro, Audio Group Denmark’s (AGD) dealer in Singapore I got to listen to the Borresen X3 loudspeaker paired with the Axxess Forte amplifier.

    AGD has been working hard to offer product at more accessible price points and the X3 floor stander speakers retail for US$11k. The Forte 1, which is a single box integrated amplifier with built in DAC, Streamer and headphone amplifier retails for just US$5.5k.

    Add an Ansuz X series distributor, power and speaker cables and it’s possible to assemble a whole system for US$20k (retail).

    The system I listened to used the Forte 2 with Ansuz A level distribution and cables. Gosh it was impressive for price. The Børresen X3 may be the least expensive floorstanding speaker in the company’s portfolio but it is a smooth, refined and revealing speaker with a surprising amount of bass weight for the small driver size. I must confess that I’m not a big fan cosmetically of the “checker board” looking woven carbon fibre faced cones – but their coherence with the ribbon tweeter was outstanding. Sound staging was deep and wide and I imagine could have been further improved if the dealer had the space to position the speakers further into the room.

    I wondered whether the system would sound even better if rather than streaming, a CD transport was used, utilizing the Forte’s internal DAC. Sure enough, comparing a CD track to the exact same track stored on NAS (ripped from the CD) the CD was a clear winner. It didn’t need a flash transport to win either with the dealer using a dated Marantz player.

    While researching more online about the Borresen X3 I came across the below review by Greg Weaver of the Audio Analyst. See Borresen X3 Loudspeakers | REVIEW - Part-Time Audiophile. Greg concludes:

    If you haven’t gathered by this point what a staggeringly good loudspeaker the Børresen X3 is, let me put aside any further subtleties. This speaker not only offers excellent performance, soaring well above its loss-leader asking price, but it also offers exceptional value! If AGD had placed a twenty-two, or even a twenty-five-thousand-dollar MSRP on the Børresen X3 loudspeakers, I wouldn’t bat an eye at those asking prices. This speaker is THAT good.


    VIDEO: An earlier video of the Borresen X3 loudspeakers by Greg Weaver. In the Youtube comments section he describes the X3 as being “stoopid good sounding for the money, and have NO RIGHT to be this good at this price.”


    If you’ve heard the X3 do post your thoughts.

    Borresen have subsequently released another X-Series loudspeaker, the X6 which increases the driver count to 7, with 2 mid range drivers and 4 bass drivers.

    Capital AudioFest 2023: Jay's Audio Lab Top Room For $50,000


    For many years now feedback from customers and dealers has been for Audio Group Denmark (AGD) to launch more affordable products.

    AGD has clearly listened because recent product launches have included the Axxess Forté 1, an all-in-one–integrated amplifier, DAC, streamer & headphone amp for around US$5k and new X-series floorstanding loudspeakers including the X3 at US$11k and the X2 at US$8.8k. Certainly, such products are still not cheap but relative to the latest Borresen M6 loudspeaker at US$550k they certainly enjoy a much larger target market and AGD dealers and customers alike are smiling.

    Next Level Hifi also demonstrated a US$25k system at Capital AudioFest. The system consisted of the Børresen Acoustics X2 Loudspeakers, the Axxess Forte’ 1 (All In One Electronics), A Mainz8 X-TC3 power distributor, A PowerSwitch X-TC3 (Ethernet distribution with noise reduction to clean streaming signals) and a full loom of Ansuz X series cables to connect everything.

    Not many companies in the High End Audio industry have the breadth of product range that AGD does and one benefit is system component matching and synergy, a point Jay makes during his reviews below.

    Next level always puts on a good demo at Axpona. I've often wanted to have a look at their goods and hope for an open house sometime as they're only 10 minutes from me.

    World Debut of The New $5500 Borresen X1 Loudspeaker


    Following the hugely successful launch of the Borresen X3 loudspeaker (US$ 11k) and subsequently the Borresen X2 floorstander (US$ 8.8k) – here now rounding out the X-series is the stand mount X1 loudspeaker.

    At US$5500, the X1 opens the world of Audio Group Denmark for a new audience!

    The Borresen brand has come a long way and now has more stereo loudspeaker models than Magico or Wilson!

    But, what does Jay of Jay’s Audio Lab think of the latest X1 speaker? Have a listen to his comments in the video below

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    Out of curiousity, can you define "hugely successful launch"?

    What exactly does that mean? Simply that the event took place and everything went according to plan or that the show immediately generated 500 unit purchases of the speakers?

    The Borresen X3 loudspeaker was launched about 1 year ago and was hugely successful as evidenced by the number of product awards received during 2023, some of which are seen below.

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    Speakers are not built to collect awards, as awards can be purchased, they are built to be sold and generate profit.

    How many of these specific model have been sold in the last year?

    Jays Audio Lab visits Next Level HiFi of Wayne, IL


    This was very interesting viewing and I hope Jay gets permission from other premium high-end audio store owners in the US to visit and record them.

    Tyler and Dana Meuller, the business owners of Next Level HiFi have been in business for around 20 years.

    Tyler shared his focus strategy, find a small number of brands you really believe in and are absolutely passionate about, stick with them and mutually grow the business by delivering strong customer value backed with first class customer support.

    Jay noted this strategy contrasted with some audio dealers in the USA which represented many brands and swopped brand representation frequently. Jay's feeling was some dealers picked up whatever was perceived to be selling out best – leading to a revolving door of brand representations as store owner whims, market demands, or distribution models changed.

    Criticisms of the video? I think it would have been best for Jay to comment on the Focal Sopra N°3 vs. Borresen X3 speakers in a separate video, but I guess that was Jay simply being spontaneous.

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    Just curious what is the mid-bass driver they are using? Is it their own or outsourced? According to one of their videos it's their own tech. But then I see Perlisten Speakers which is located in WI, seems to be using similar technology in the bass drivers. X1 owner now... Would love to buy the Forte to mate with these down the road, currently using Naim gear which does mate very well. Great thing about NLH is they definitely know their stuff, and they know how to setup a room correctly which is key, even at shows which is equally impressive.

    Congratulations on the Borresen X1 acquisition. Did you buy the X1 to replace something else? If so, what?

    Audio Group Denmark design and build all speaker drivers (cones and ribbon) in-house. Ditto for the crossovers and cabling. Visually the cones on Perlisten Speakers and for that matter new Gryphon speakers too, look similar but the membrane and magnet motor system is different.

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    kiwi_1282001: I have been running them for a strait week, without any critical listening, yet.. I use to own some Scansonics and bought some Raidho used, but didn't like the sound as much as the Dyns I currently have. I wanted to give Borresen another go, as I really like their passion behind their products. They also got a good dealer in the Chicagoland area (not where I snagged this though) as they are hard to come by. I am running mine with Naim 222 and 250 combo which is really nice, but I must say I really like the X1 with my BAT VK80i Tube Int. Amp! I don't get the sheer power but boy do they sound good with that combo. Right now the X1 are going up against a pair of Audio Physic Sparks which is equally as good in some areas, so not sure if I am replacing those yet. I am extremely impressed with the X1 as it plays more like a floor-standing speaker and creates a huge soundstage for it's size, jaw dropping sound that's for sure.

    AXPONA 2024 | World Debut of the Borresen C1 Standmount Speaker


    Audio Group Denmark will be launching a brand-new loudspeaker at AXPONA 2004, the Borresen Acoustics C1.

    The C1 is positioned above the recently launched Borresen X1.

    Compared to the X1 the C1 has a better loudspeaker magnet system with lower inductance, an upgraded ribbon tweeter from the M series, a larger cabinet with additional carbon fibre reinforcements in the cabinet sides to make the cabinet more rigid and an improved crossover circuit. All of this sums to overall less noise and consequently improved resolution and dynamic range vs. the X1.

    The expected MSRP (TBC) is US$16500 including stand.

    Do Speaker Measurements Really Matter?


    Debate on the topic of do loudspeaker measurements really matter seems to divide audiophiles into two camps.

    One camp insists that if a loudspeaker doesn’t measure well – it won’t sound any good.

    Another camp insists that loudspeaker measurements can largely be ignored – your ears will decide.

    In this video Michael Borresen, CTO and founder of Audio Group Denmark gives his interesting take.
