GATE TO SOUND
Welcome to the
World of Immersive
Gate to Sound by Burmester,
Mercedes-Maybach, Dolby Atmos & Rodriguez Jr.
Back in 1977 Burmester already produced handmade audio systems and components. Today we continue this tradition as the last independent high-end manufacturer of this kind.
Burmester audio systems and components are designed to meet the highest acoustic and visual expectations. We are only satisfied when the sound experience is perfect and the design is timeless.
Occasionally, a chain of serendipitous moments cause you to make key decisions that lead you in a particular direction in life. In Dieter Burmester’s case it all began with an imperfect tube amplifier.
In 2001, we happily accepted the challenge with and redefined the high-end audio segment in the automotive sector with Bugatti. The know-how from the established high-end home audio sector could be successfully transferred. The realization of this project laid the foundation for further partnerships. In 2006, our cooperation with Porsche began. The first sedan of the Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer debuted in 2009 with a Burmester high-end sound system. In the same year, the cooperation with another Stuttgart car manufacturer began: Mercedes-Benz. As a lover of the brand, this was also a special moment for Dieter Burmester, which Automotive Sound Systeme culminated in the introduction of the tenth generation of the S-Class in 2013 with the world‘s first high-end 3D sound system for luxury sedans. Special projects, such as the integration of a sound system in a luxury motorhome, equally challenge us and our passion. Together with our partners, we will continue to be committed to the claim of perfect sound – for standard-setting sound systems in the automotive segment.
Pure musical enjoyment for luxury automobiles
“I would never have thought that this soundDIETER BURMESTER
could be realised in cars.”
In the collaboration with Ferrari, Burmester is treading a new path of high-end automotive sound development which elevates the sound experience to an entirely new level of heightened sensory perception.
For Burmester and Mercedes-Benz, it was and is a constant drive to develop standard-setting sound systems for luxury automobiles to experience pleasurable and relaxing sound journeys.
Burmester and Porsche are characterized by a long partnership, which to this day demonstrates what the spirit of audiophile German engineering and design genius can achieve at the top.
The Bugatti project marked the start of Burmester high-end sound systems for cars and redefined the high-end automotive audio segment.
