Crescendo Event

Crescendo Designs - A Company Driven by Luxury and Perfection

If you're in New York this weekend (Saturday 29 August) you have the opportunity to check out an event showcasing one of the highest quality sound systems in the world! The company putting it together is Crescendo; a high end audio dealer that gives you total control of your home systems providing private cinemas, lighting and shade, and sophisticated CCTV/Networking all while partnering with state of the art audio companies like Burmester Audio to give you the ultimate life style experience.

Burmester Audio, having recently ranked #4 in top luxury brands in Germany, will be bringing their top of the line reference system. The equipment produced by Burmester is unsurpassed in quality as they take to heart the message of the late Dieter Burmester to “produce a sound that makes you forget you are listening via electronic equipment.” All Burmester equipment is handmade by the best engineers in the industry whose attention to detail is the foundation of the Made in Germany reputation.

Rutherford Audio and Burmester bring to you a system built for precision

Rutherford Audio is the North American distributor for top of the line audio systems including Burmester and many others. Norm Steinke the President of US sales for Rutherford will be representing the system and will be attending the event. Norm will be available to answer any inquiries about the system in place. He is without a doubt one of the highest qualified representatives to speak about the system just after the engineers themselves, so we encourage you to get to this event and fire away with all the questions you have about this profound system.

The system will have a total cost of $325,000 which will include the following:
