Borresen X3

X-Men – That'll be Børresen's new X range of loudspeakers shown here with the X3 [€10'000/pr]. These models premiere a new driver range once again developed in-house which uses spread-tow carbon skins around a central Nomex core and titanium voice-coil formers for low inductance. The company's signature ribbon tweeter is now loaded into a deep waveguide. The pricing indicates that the X range comes in below the Z range which itself sits below the original 0 series. Above the latter will come the new M range whose drivers get radical 3D-printed zirconium baskets, silver pole pieces and other exotic refinements, some of them shown here.
