About Burmester

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.

Own a Burmester Audio System in Your Luxury Car? 

Perhaps you’ve come to know the name Burmester through its highly praised luxury automotive sound systems. A partnership with Bugatti marked the start of Burmester’s involvement in this industry. It was a match made in heaven, an exclusive audio brand with a legendary sports car. In 2009 the newly released Porsche Panamera (seen below) boasted a Burmester system. Now Burmester has grown to be the premium option on all current model Porsche cars. In 2014 Mercedes joined the family with the launch of the new S-Class. Their release of the worlds first 3D surround sound in the sedan revolutionized the space of car audio. Now Mercedes is adding Burmester as an option or standard in future models including the highly anticipated new AMG GT-S.
