Bösendorfer has been very successful for over 170 years in the world of high quality sound.

Our commitment to this great musical tradition has led to the development of the loudspeaker program, with which Bösendorfer sets another new standard in the world of quality sound.


At the heart of this development and listening experience is the active acoustic principle, the horn resonator and the plate resonator, which enable the optimised adjustment of sound to the space around it. The entire loudspeaker box is a single body of sound - the entire loudspeaker is an instrument. Similar to the strings of a piano that causes the entire grand piano to vibrate through a complex interaction of a steel frame and wooden case. Bösendorfer loudspeakers produce an unparalleled, authentic listening experience.

so they're designing a speaker to have the cabinet resonate like the body of an instrument?


That is a profoundly horrible idea....


They should stick to making instruments. :rolleyes:

This is very interesting. My first tendency would be to laugh at this, but Bösendorfer is a famous name. Preferred by some to Steinway. One wonders what building a fabulous piano has to do with building a fabulous speaker, but I look forward to hearing more about them.

We discussed a dealer arrangement about a year ago; but, I didn't need another Bosendorfer piano (they thought one on our showroom floor would be a good enough investment to pay for the speakers).

Not sure I follow you Noah.
I think he's saying that a speaker of that design is not a speaker, it's an instrument.
