    Hmm. Not sure what to make of that comment.

    Maybe you would like to just read the thread again.

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    First - I should have said here in the United States. I have NO experience of sales outside of here.

    I have not looked for any Borresen used for sale. But here in the USA, typically a current product that is in great condition will sell for approximately what a dealer can buy it for new . +- a little. That applies to stereo equipment, watches, etc etc. Not a knock on the product what so ever. Just how things typically work. With Raidho it's been that way for years. I've been told that Borresen has the same pricing structure. No reason to believe it will be any different.

    And yes - I was offered a pair of 01s at 40% of retail price. (yes that's 60% off). I almost bought a pair. And might still do so once I sell my D5s.

    Further, has any dealer actually offered you “close to ½ off” for a pair of new Borresen speakers?

    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    Dear all,


    As I made clear in an earlier and since deleted thread I am not a hired “brand ambassador” for Borresen Acoustics or affiliated brands. No material connection exists between me and the brand except for the fact I consider myself a friend of one of the company owners. I’ve not received payment, free or discounted product in return for promotional services as some seem to assume. I actually find the idea of being labelled a brand ambassador quite endearing though somewhat comical. I mean, have you read about the BMW luxury group brand ambassador driving around in a mini?


    My passion for the Borresen brand is well known by frequent readers of the forum. In order not to mislead any visitors to Audioshark a personal relationship disclosure was made. The forum owner is satisfied with the disclosure – so let’s please move on.

Please visit my system thread hosted on Audioshark for more details. Disclosure: The author is materially connected to Ansuz, Aavik & Borresen Acoustics via friendship with an owner.

    My local Borresen dealer claims he has never had the good fortune to meet you, talk to you or quote you. Nor is he in a position to offer a discount on Borresen speakers without a trade-in credit.

    It has been my understanding that it is not considered appropriate to discuss discounts or margins on this or just about any of the sites I peruse or participate.

    You are right and I apologize. I was out of line.

    Hi Jock,

    No apology is necessary as far as I’m concerned. As always, I appreciate your candor.

    Jim, you raise a good point. I was not aware of any Audioshark site specific policies around this and perhaps Mike could comment?


    I absolutely agree that raising public discussion on topics like discounts, product & channel margins and pricing policy should not be encouraged, though I’ve seen it in a number of Audioshark threads, most recently PS Audio – so perhaps its considered ok here?

    Speaking generally, I don’t imagine dealers would be happy to have discounts which they have offered in private made public. Equally, if principals or distributors learn through public forums that dealers are acting outside of agreed policy – that can have significant consequences for all concerned parties.
