Burmester 961 MK3

$22,000.00 USD

As is customary for Burmester, older models of the 961 may be factory-upgraded to the 961 MK 3 version with the new Kevlar speaker cone.

The 961 comes from the family of the first speakers Burmester ever built. As the big sister of the 995, this speaker fills large rooms with the same full body sound of the 995 and adds to it the precise and detailed mid range production of the new cones designed specifically for the 961.

  • Impedance rectification of the upper bass reflex maximum and of the inductance of the voice coil to keep the crossover from interacting with the impedance of the woofer.
  • The bass drivers of the 961 MK3 fire from the sides of the two speaker cabinets towards each other. The advantage of this design is that the high-frequency portion of the woofer output does not radiate directly towards the listener.
  • The ultra-stable bi-wiring speaker terminals which allow the use of even the fattest speaker wires have been screwed directly into the crossover board.
  • Rear-vented bass-reflex enclosure with side-firing woofers with critical bottom frequency around 35 Hz
