Burmester BC350 loudspeaker, German precision for perfect sound

Dale Davies |
The BC350 loudspeaker from the new Burmester Signature Line represents the zenith of what is technically possible, with irreproachable musical reproduction.

The impressive shape allows this versatile loudspeaker to reach to the deepest frequencies with almost limitless dynamics yet the BC350, with its high resolution, also produces a musical, delicate and highly detailed performance that fills any listening space. The housing is enclosed by a lavishly milled aluminum frame, which lends the loudspeaker solid support at all frequencies. The BC350 Loudspeaker is able to reproduce music in two different tunings.

A switchover of the discrete crossovers, which are set up in a precisely separated configuration, allows the listener to select between intricate detail in Pure Mode and high level performance and involvement with a psycho acoustically lifted stage in Live Mode. Thus the BC350 offers the opportunity to realize different focal points in the sound image according to particular listening situations. For audiophile enjoyment of music, the speaker is used in "Pure Mode".

This audio tuning focuses on the priorities of a pure high end music experience: authenticity, tonal balance, highest resolution, precision and agility. In this mode, the tweeter at the front, one of the two midrange drivers and both woofers are active. The stage presentation allows the differentiated placement of individual instruments and voices, yet at the same time captivates by means of its homogeneity. Audio and voice playback benefit from vastly superior resolution and fine dynamic reproduction.

In "Live Mode", the speaker offers a truly immersing ‘live’ audio experience. The focus of the tuning here concentrates on dynamism, involvement and spaciousness. To increase the sense of space according to individual preferences, an adjustable tweeter is activated at the top of the housing. Additionally, in this arrangement both mid range speakers are switched in parallel in accordance with the D'Appolito principle. In this way, the membrane surface is increased and, in the midrange at a constant volume, only half as much individual driver movement is necessary.
