When Backes&Müller began building active loudspeakers in the mid 70’s, technical factors, which are still valid today, were decisive. Of course it is simpler to build a passive box– not least because the cost of the entire amplifier electronics can be saved, making it economically more attractive for the manufacturer. Nevertheless if one wants to perfect the system “loudspeaker” there is no alternative to active technology. Choice chassis, selected electronic components, a circuit design harmonising both with each other, combined with the shortest cable paths, all together compose the guaranty for the most precise and direct transformation of music signals into sound. In connection to the legendary, dynamic DMC™ deflection control, which produces exact membrane movement tracking of music signals, B&M loudspeakers bring the exact musical experience to domestic living-rooms that sound engineers and producers have captured in meticulous detail. Since the year 2000 there have been B&M developments that examine the advantages of digital technology; particularly with regard to correct impulse music playback, exactly the aspect of what was achieved by DMC regulation of individual paths in the 70’s.
Digital technology with B&M proprietary FIRTEC technology has not only permitted the realisation of sound quality in individual paths, but for the first time this technology has achieved an exact adjustment of loudspeakers in installation and the listening space for the entire loudspeaker system, also in the transition zone, by including the cabinet and its edges, etc. The result: It is almost impossible for you to experience music that is more dynamic, lively and honest. Backes&Müller’s 40 year tradition is founded precisely on this quality and during this time has survived many short-term trends. Throughout the years one term has been and is the common factor in all tests and product discussions: music.
