“You want to achieve 100 percent? Then take care of every detail yourself!” That’s how you could summarize the motto of Børresen Acoustics.
Whereas most manufacturers use off-the-shelf (albeit high-quality) components, the Danes rely almost entirely on in-house developments – and not just on a surface level: Since, for example, cobbling together the damping feet of the Z5 using a fretsaw and sandpaper would hardly yield the required precicion, the manufacturer developed a machine park that makes it possible to manufacture the components without compromise.
The same applies to the unique drivers, which apart from the drive are designed without magnetic materials and – like all metal parts – are subjected to a cold treatment at -196 degrees for several days.
The process is intended to destress the materials and improve their resonance properties.
You can hear this attention to detail: The Z5 Cryo Edition disappears as a perceptible sound source and reproduces exactly what was captured during the recording – completely distortion-free, dynamic and with a presence that is not of this world!
