Burwell and Sons would like to invite you to visit them at T.H.E. Show Newport to experience their new for 2016
HOMAGE SERIES LOUDSPEAKERS
“THE SINGLE JACKS”
SUB WOOFER PACKAGE
The Burwell’s are excited to see what music lovers think of their latest creation they call THE SINGLE JACKS. Single jack, noun. one handed, 3-4lb miniature sledgehammer
The Burwell’s applied their unique approach to speaker building to the design of these new prototypes. Aesthetics being paramount to the Burwell’s, they were led down a path to multiple, smaller, sealed enclosures to achieve the unobtrusive beauty and musicality they were after. The modest sized enclosures are easy to place in a room to neutralize room anomalies. At the Burwell’s moderate size listening room, the most favorable location happens to be directly behind the main speakers facing back. They literally disappear.
The package being shown includes two, 1 cu ft, sealed enclosures, each housing a 12” woofer. The floating grill, designed as a “Cat Guard”, will also fend off small children and grandchildren. This particular package is powered by two 1000 watt freestanding amplifiers.
The Burwell’s started out with the recommended cabinet sizes for the woofers being used, but felt the performance, while technically correct, tended to be bloated and difficult to control. With smaller enclosures, they sacrificed some extreme low end but felt the results more than make up for it. The smaller enclosures enable a diverse genre of music to be played from low to extreme SPL levels quite effortlessly. Fast and tight is the order of the day to keep up with the dynamic realism of the Homage Series Loudspeakers. If you believe, “loud is beautiful if it’s clean”, then you won’t be disappointed.
Speaking of beautiful and not being disappointed, the Burwell’s have invited an old friend to join them.
is bringing his beautiful Blackhawk 20WPC integrated tube amplifier. Hopefully, the understated elegance of Dave and designer S.E Han’s masterpiece won’t overshadow the Burwell’s Homage’s in the beauty portion of this pageant. Raven’s gorgeous mono blocks were turning heads at RMAF 2014, but it was his 4 watt Gold Finch mini system pushing the Burwell’s that prompted one writer to state, “Tin Pan Alley was playing when I entered….this was flat out the best I’d ever heard this cut.” Dave and Mr. Han know how to bring it.
The Burwell’s will be bringing their digital music collection, and have turned to a new friend for help with that.
has graciously provided the latest version of their Mytek Manhattan DAC in a glorious black finish. While Chebon Littlefield of Mytek will be showcasing their new Brooklyn DAC in the lobby through headphones, the Burwell’s will be upstairs showing why you’ll need headphones after you’ve upset the neighbors. The improvement in sound and performance was dramatic and wonderful since the Manhattan was plugged into the equation.
Just when it seemed things couldn’t get any better, everything was plugged together with cables provided by
HIGH FIDELITY CABLES
Wow! If there ever was any debate at the Burwell compound about the effect of cables, the debate ended when Mr. Schultz sent them a package of gems from High Fidelity Cables. Even though the senior Mr. Burwell is half blind and deaf, he can clearly see how much better the sound is and has heard they might be the most beautiful part of an amazing package.
Take the stairs to the fourth floor and treat your eyes and ears to a visit with the Burwell’s.
