Burmester Launches 3 Elegant New Speakers, Ideal for Home Theater and Two -Channel Listening

B30, B25 and B20 Speakers Boast Air Motion Transformer Tweeters, Kevlar Midrange Drivers, Powerful Oval Woofers, Superb Build Quality and Other Reference-Level Features

Burmester US, a division of Burmester Audiosysteme, Germany's 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 '07.


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 speakers' cabinets. Built with exceptional attention to detail, every driver is burnt in a full 14 days before it's measured and computer -matched in pairs at tolerances so low as to have been thought impossible.

More affordable descendents of Burmester's acclaimed Reference Line B100 Loudspeaker, the three speakers share many of the B100's features, including Kevlar -coned midrange drivers, a powerful propulsion system with Neodymium magnets, and a B100 -derived crossover custom -tailored for the drivers that delivers a very linear frequency response in the critical range between 300 and 3500Hz.

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 speakers' 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 speakers' 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.

Burmester's 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 company's other outstanding products at the at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown, 1400 Welton Street (2 blocks from the Colorado Convention Center), during CEDIA EXPO.
