The original purpose of the B10 loudspeaker was to serve as a near-field monitor in Dieter Burmester’s private recording studio. Its outstanding performance, however, moved Burmester to integrate the B10 into his portfolio as a compact shelf speaker with small space demand and big sound that can be placed almost anywhere.
Speakers priced as a pair.
The development of the B10 profited from the experience gained in designing sound systems for Porsche in the automotive field and from cooperation with an automotive supplier. The result is an extremely precise driver for bass and mid-range with a resin-coated glass fiber cone, which showed the best transient response. In addition, a unique tweeter with ring-shaped diaphragm for high-frequency reproduction has been developed, which is now also used in automotive applications.
The appearance of the compact loudspeaker is determined by the solid aluminum front, which not only enhances the appearance, but also specifies the radiation angle for the tweeter. The housing can be ordered in walnut or macassar veneer or in a white high-gloss finish.
The up to 48 mm thick baffle is connected to the solid aluminum front panel in the factory. With a sure instinct and a lot of expertise, the qualified loudspeaker designers apply a layer of felt between the two materials to prevent the vibrations generated by the loudspeaker chassis from being transmitted.
