Demo Session: Borresen Z5 speakers

The Borresen Z5 speakers in the demo system at Audio Perfectionist.

The Borresen Acoustics speakers from Denmark have arrived at Audio Perfectionist in Jaya One, Petaling Jaya, and a demo system has been set up.

Last week, the Borresen Acoustics 03 speakers were on demo, but they have been sold. The Borresen Z5 speakers that are now connected to the demo system have several design features that I have never seen before such as side vents for the ribbon tweeters and rear-firing ports for the bass and mid drivers. Not only that but the ports have metal braces with an unusual design which perform an unknown function.

Issac Ho has set up the demo system comprising the Borresen Acoustics Z5 speakers, McIntosh C1100 preamp, McIntosh MC462 power amp, Cary Audio DMS700 streamer and McIntosh MCD350 CD player.

The components are placed on an HRS SXR Audio Stand, HRS R3X isolation platform, HRS damping plate on top and Helix under the DMS700, HRS Vortex under the C1100 controller and pre amp.

Cables are: Ansuz Speakz A2 speaker cable, Ansuz Signalz C2 1.5m XLR from DMS700 to pre amp and Ansuz Signalz A2 1.5m XLR from pre to power.

On the power supply side are the Ansuz Mainz A2 power cord from wall to Ansuz Mainz8 D2 distributor and from distributor to components are all Ansuz Mainz X2 1.5m power cords.

Here are some demo tracks recorded in 24bit 48kHz WAV files (converted to FLAC) using a Tascam TM-2X stereo microphone and a Sound Devices MixPre-3 II. — By Lam Seng Fatt
