KIM is a small loudspeaker and takes up far less room space than previous models, but KIM delivers music, emotion and scale in a way that’s surprising for its size.
Defining a new model for a relatively new company in the marketplace is always challenging. With Borg, we made our second model a success by combining innovation and more of the same.
For our third model, KIM, we asked our dealers and distributors, and they asked for either a more expensive model or a lower-priced model, but there was no clear trend.
So, we did what we are good at – we made it our way again – a mixture of innovation and more of the same. KIM had to be a speaker that we would use ourselves, something fun. We designed another speaker for us.
Borg is and always was a statement speaker. Bold and visible, never trying to hide and with as little compromise as possible. So how could a new model be different? Importantly, could it include Borg innovations? How could we reach a retail price which makes the speaker available for more people without losing quality?
A few basic design principles stayed the same. A reflex system with a paper coned woofer with a massive magnet, Two-way construction with AMT HF unit, again based on a Mundorf core. A cabinet with everything needed to avoid unwanted radiation from the box and a highly optimised crossover with high-quality parts.
We wanted an enclosure large enough to deliver realistic low frequencies and scale but was small enough to be relatively discreet. It had to be low enough to sit below windows and work well close to walls.
“Finks KIM is an incredibly well-balanced, perfectly supple loudspeaker that plays coherently and coherently from front to back. Certainly, one of the best there is in this class.”
“KIM’s infectious well-timed musicality takes sound reproduction beyond mere process, to achieve a higher level of listener involvement and satisfaction.”
