Originally, the B10 loudspeakers were conceived solely for use as nearfield monitors, to be deployed when recording music in Dieter Burmester’s private studio. However, thanks to their extraordinary performance, the concept has now been extended to create a pair of shelf speakers capable of astounding performance, with low space requirements.
Since 1977 Burmester Audiosysteme has been manufacturing high-end audio components of unsurpassed quality. From the very beginning, the objective has been to create a perfect blend of highest-quality sound, technological innovation, and timeless design. Highly trained technicians assemble all Burmester components by hand in its Berlin factory. Because “Made in Germany” is a label that is taken very seriously by Burmester. Burmester’s research and development department constantly strive to not only keep up with the latest advances but to set its own trends and standards. From the first design sketch via a number of prototypes to the final product shipped from the Berlin factory: each component that bears the Burmester name has been developed in its entirety in-house. As an audio pioneer, Burmester has created a number of legendary components that have become icons of the high-end audio universe.
Burmester considers himself as a guardian and mediator of our musical heritage. The innovative technologies and the highest-quality parts used in the audio components ultimately serve only one purpose, namely, to give full access to the music. By listening to recordings of Elvis Presley, Herbert von Karajan or the Beatles you can bring the full spirit of music into your living room that no concert stage in the world can offer you anymore.
Low-vibration cabinet walls made of 19mm MDF (medium-density fibreboard) with additional internal struts.
Baffle in sandwich construction up to 48mm thick. This results in low resonance levels and high sound neutrality in the fundamental range.
Reflex construction for low bass distortion. Bass-reflex tunnel in the back wall of the cabinets, can be closed off with the foam cylinder supplied to damp the bass reproduction to a degree.
Special dimensioning of lower mid-range units and frequency crossovers for unusually fast fundamental transients (approx. 200Hz to 2kHz)

In a fairly good-sized room, pairing the hefty Burmester 911 amplifier (or the larger 909) with Burmester speakers makes for highly engaging listening. But for those of us wanting the Burmester experience in a smaller room, the B10s—which are only about 15 inches tall, 9 inches wide, and 11 inches deep—deliver just that.
