Burmeister Speakers You MIGHT be able to afford?
Burmester US, a division of Burmester Audiosysteme, Germanyís leading manufacturer of high-performance electronics and speakers, introduces a series of three slim, esthetically appealing speakers capable of filling even large rooms with a full, warm sound, at CEDIA EXPO Ď07.
The new B30, B25, B20 Loudspeakers are ideal for Home Theaters or just listening to music. All are three-way, full-range, floorstanding models capable of reproducing all octaves down to the deepest bass foundation without losing a sense of naturalness and tonal balance, even at low listening levels. In performance, music reproduced by the speakers seems to float from a cloud rather than emanate from the speakersí cabinets. Built with exceptional attention to detail, every driver is burnt in a full 14 days before itís measured and computer-matched in pairs at tolerances so low as to have been thought impossible.
As in the B100, a new air motion transformer with an extended frequency range of 2,700 - 45,000 Hz is mounted in a small horn in each of the new speakers for a highly efficient, very dynamic, high-frequency resolution. A side-firing oval woofer maximizes the cone surface, while conforming to the speakersí slim design, and a powerful Ferrite magnet system enables the speakers to reproduce strong bass at a very high SPL.
Rated for 250 watts, the B30 Speaker stands 43.3 inches high, 9.6 inches wide and 16.1 inches deep. It boasts a 6-3/4-inch mid-range woofer, and a powerful 12 x 8-1/4-inch side-firing oval woofer. The speaker is rated for sensitivity at 89 db, and has an impedance of 4 Ohms.
Rated for 200 watts, the B25 Speaker stands 35.6 inches high, 7.9 inches wide and 13.8 inches deep. It features a 5-inch mid-range woofer, and an 8-1/4 x 6-1/4-inch side-firing oval woofer. The speaker is rated for sensitivity at 89 db, and has an impedance of 4 Ohms.
The B20 Speaker, rated for 150 watts, stands 34.6 inches high, 6.5 inches wide and 11 inches deep. It features a 4-inch mid-range woofer, and an 8-1/4 x 6-1/4-inch side-firing oval woofer. The speaker is rated for sensitivity at 88 db, and has an impedance of 4 Ohms.
The speakersí cabinets are made in Denmark with fine Danish craftsmanship, employing a composite of HDF and birch plywood. Each is available in a choice of Macassar ebony, Silver or Elsberry (comparable to Swiss pear) finishes for a luxurious final touch.
Burmesterís new B30, B25 and B20 Speakers will be available in October, September and November, respectively; at suggested prices, also respectively, of $12,995, $9,995 and $6,995. They can be seen with the companyís other outstanding products at the at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown, 1400 Welton Street (2 blocks from the Colorado Convention Center), during CEDIA EXPO.
