Today I’m checking out the BOREA BR03, a new bookshelf speaker from French Hifi manufacturer TRIANGLE. The BR03 is the largest bookshelf model in their new BOREA line of budget audiophile speakers, which draws from their mid-range Esprit EZ range.
The BR03 is a really big bookshelf speaker, measuring about 15 inches tall, 8 inches high, and a little over 12 inches deep. They’re front-ported, and equipped with a 25mm (almost an inch) silk dome tweeter, along with a 16cm midrange/bass driver. The midbass driver is made from untreated cellulose paper membrane, originally developed for the slightly more expensive Esprit Ez series.
This speaker is selling for about $549 retail, and so far I’m impressed with the level of refinement right out of the box. I matched it up with the Stellar DAC and Amplifier from PS Audio, and the imaging/soundstage was unreal. Stay tuned for the full review.
