Burmester of North America in House Systems

BURMESTER AUDIO

Burmester Audiosysteme was founded by electronic engineer and musician, Dieter Burmester. After constructing an amplifier that was intended for personal use, friends pursued him to use his skills professionally. Finally, when one of his friends went to the German audio press in the late 70's, Dieter’s amplifier was claimed to be one of the best ever made.

Today, Burmester is one of the most respected names in HiFi audio among customers, press and maufacturers of the highest-quality audio worldwide. Dieter still arrives in the office every morning and is fully invested in the design and manufacturing of every component as well as leading every aspect of business in the company. There are 50 employees who operate out of the manufacturing facility in Berlin, with product distributors - serving as brand advocates - in 65 countries worldwide.

Rutherford Audio Inc. proudly represents Burmester in North and Central America.

Burmester In Porsche

Since the introduction of the Burmester high-end Surround sound system at the time the new Porsche Panamera was launched, it has been the benchmark for factory-installed integrated car hifi systems. This status was successfully defended in the next project, the Porsche Cayenne, and in the Porsche 911 iconic sports car.

The superiority of the system is the net result of innumerable details, and of one overriding goal, and that is perfect sound.

Burmester In Mercedes

This is the first time Mercedes Benz has worked with its new audio partner, Burmester Audiosysteme GmbH. The internationally renowned Berlin-based manufacturer of high-end sound systems impressed Mercedes Benz managers, developers and engineers with its outstanding sound and its uncompromising standards in terms of quality and pure musical experience.

More than four years of joint work went into the development of two innovative sound systems, especially designed to perfectly fit the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

HiFi+ Burmester 101 Review (pdf)

The 101 amplifier is a 120W design, and uses a Class D power sections, in place of a predominantly Class A topology of other amps in the Burmester range. Class D operation poloarises audio enthusiasts, but the 101 takes the Class D concept and runs with it.

Tone Publications Burmester 088 Review

Comparing my Burmester 011 preamplifier to the company’s new 088 preamplifier reminded me of two other German high-performance machines I’ve sampled: Audi’s 430hp eight-cylinder R8 and its new 525hp 10-cylinder model. Both cars are outstanding and from the outside, look virtually indistinguishable. Much as you want to convince yourself that 430hp is enough, all it takes is a quick spin around the block and suddenly, you can’t live without the extra performance. The Burmester 088 is equally exciting—the minute you hear it, your perception is similarly altered.

THFR Burmester 100 Review

The 100 Phono marks Burmester’s first return to the LP marketplace since their successful model 838 released in the 1980’s. The 100 Phono is a proud member of the Burmester Top Line series. It is exceptionally well built, as all Burmester products are, its sleek and modern design highlighted by a mirrored-chrome silver faceplate.

HiFi Critic 036 Review (pdf)

After trying this amplifier with a number of different sources and loudspeakers, I'd already concluded that the 036 was in the very good-to-excellent class. But there was more to come. When finally coupled with a matching Burmester CP player in a fully balanced more, results were magical.
