Really, the investment is into our own pleasure. Anything goes. Our Danish hifi consortium's rapid growth illustrates that serving this basic fact really works as long as POI—pleasure on investment—is high. It's why Aavik mount class A output transistors on massive copper slabs. "Copper lowers output Ω, improves damping factor and runs devices less hot." It's why they installed their own cryogenic immersion tanks on site. It's why they're frequent visitors to a local university's magnetron sputtering unit where critical parts are coated with micro layers of titanium, scandium, tungsten, diamond or zirconium. By financing exotic R&D with their purchases, the group's most affluent clients become patrons to these arts. Those of us on the lower end of the discretionary income scale get to enjoy the trickle-down effects in whatever pages of this catalogue we're comfortable shopping.

It's how the luv spreads around.

Aalborg airport even has a special parking zone for it.

Six months after the above published, the formal press release hit. "The biggest challenge for our engineering team was how to create an entry-level Børresen speaker that was more affordable yet still had our typical design DNA and quality standards. For this we had to figure out which of our existing technologies and parts had the greatest sonic impact to guarantee the well-known Børresen qualities. The next task then was learning how to produce such a speaker more cost-effectively. We actually drew from the R&D of our flagship M1 membrane, our most ambitious loudspeaker project to date. This membrane achieves maximum stiffness with minimum noise. These requirements made it necessary to design, develop and assemble all components in-house. A trickle-down result is the X3 membrane of three skins laminated into a single unit: two layers of spread-carbon fiber surrounding a layer of aramid honeycomb spacers. The spread-tow carbon fiber provides optimal stiffness while reducing sound-disturbing vibrations and resonances to unprecedented levels. The aramid honeycomb has the best stiffness-to-weight ratio in the vertical direction."
