B38

  Loudspeaker

The new B38 Loudspeaker is the latest product to emerge from the stable of Burmester’s successful B-series. Closely related both visually and acoustically, the B18, this larger model benefits from both an elegant design and significantly increased capacity. The acoustic principle behind this creates an audio experience more inspiring than ever before. Scaling up the concept gave rise to a plethora of opportunities – and these have been made full use of. In this loudspeaker, the 3-way principle involves a side-firing woofer. The aim of this is to achieve a slim and elegant design, which can be seamlessly integrated into a wide range of living environments, while at the same time wowing listeners with its impulsive and powerful bass reproduction.

Design

In terms of purist elegance, the design is simply perfect. One example of this is the screwless, integrated front panel, whose appearance accentuates the slim shape of the loudspeaker. This makes it look less technical, or mechanical, and more like an elegant item of furniture. Adorned with high-quality matt lacquer or selected veneers, the aluminum frontage completes the unit’s astounding visual effect.


Technical Details

The Burmester B38 Loudspeaker offers two different options for individual adjustment of the audio experience, which can help to significantly reduce room influences. Firstly, a two-stage switch on the rear of the housing causes a wide-range bass roll-off of 1-3 dB between 150 Hz and 37 Hz. In addition to this, a cylinder made of porous foam, which is fully or partially inserted into the bass reflex tube, can be used to influence the bass response mechanically and to adapt it to the spatial situation or personal listening taste.
