Don’t flame me guys but is it really $40K good ?
I mean with that price tag there’s so many good or
even better speakers to choose from.
$40k for a pair of 2-way standmounted monitors?

You're paying for tech allows you to listen at high SPL without having listener fatigue, which previously was in the realm of expensive floorstanders. I spoke to Michael at length about his design (outside the room during the show), from the midwoofer's high xmax underhung voicecoil and CF laminated diaphragm. to his clever port design. Not to mention the tweeter, crossover....yadda yadda yadda, boring stuff to you guys. Bottom line is, in order to make those speakers perform the way they do, need lots of investment.

My 2 Lira's worth.

+1.  Yes.  There is a lot of innovation in the Borresen Acoustics loudspeaker range.   We can add an iron free magnet system for the midrange/woofer to the list.

Don’t know about you guys but I can never bring myself to pay that much for a pair of speakers regardless of innovation etc etc. There’s always the law of physics involved here especially when bass is taken into consideration. To each his own I guess.

Cheers & Thanks

No worries, lah. Even I would not pay so much for "just a pair of speakers".

For that outlay, I'd buy more drivers, output transformers, tubes and silver cables, and build more cabinets until the cows come home.  ;D

Me thinks it’s marketed and priced for exclusivity.

Well my Borresen 01 loudspeakers finally showed up yesterday.   

I had to be a bit patient.   I’m told that Borresen completely sold out its first production run and has back orders up to its eyeballs. 

More details on the product and my unpacking experience can be found in my system thread.

https://www.audioshark.org/showthread.php?t=4398&page=29&p=258898&viewfull=1#post258898

I have not had the opportunity yet to listen to the speakers, but the good news is the speakers passed the wife acceptance test.

That’s because your wife doesn’t know how much these speakers cost 1AngMoh. Lol

There are exceptions in the High End Audio market, don’t you realised that ?  ;)
