BURMESTER AUDIOSYSTEME

Berlin-based Burmester has a strong German heritage, sourcing more than 95% of its materials locally and relying purely on handmade manufacturing processes in Germany. As announced in February this year, Burmester will develop and release further electronic components within the next 12 months.

BURMESTER BC150 LOUDSPEAKERS

For the new BC150 loudspeakers, Burmester has translated and extended the innovation leaps from its BC350 loudspeakers and brought them into a more compact form. Decorative elements of the loudspeakers are interchangeable and can be adapted to special requests and special room designs in terms of their colours as well as their material. The design as well as the manufacturing of all elements installed in the BC150 is done by hand by Burmester employees.

BURMESTER 217 TURNTABLE

The new Burmester 217 turntable is inspired by the brand’s 175 turntable and has two belt-drive motors and a low-resonance unibody housing made of solid aluminium. The unit has a gimbal-mounted, straight tonearm that is naturally cranked by the geometry of the headshell. The exact length between bearing and needle tip is 239.1 mm – just over 9 inches.

The tonearm is made of a unidirectional fibre composite material in conjunction with aluminium components. The needle used is a Shibata design and the signal from the cartridge is passed on directly via a high-quality phono connection cable. Each Burmester 217 comes with a slipmat made of composite leather.

BURMESTER IN THE PANDEMIC

The company also recently launched an internal vaccination program for all its employees to provide a safe working environment as soon as doses became available.
