Burkhardtsmaier products contain surprisingly few components. Each element is specially developed for a very specific purpose. The products do not look like pieces of equipment, they look like sound sculptures. Their highly-polished surfaces absorb and reflect their environment, ensuring that Burkhardtsmaier products can be integrated into any room or space without dominating it.
The fact that the extraordinary is commonplace plays a key role in the world of Burkhardtsmaier sound: “Absolute perfection is not possible, but you can hear perfection,” says Berthold Burkhardtsmaier. “Our goal is always to think things through to their ultimate conclusion and never give up if there is still the slightest room for improvement.” Burkhardtsmaier closes the gap between music production and pure reproduction at home. With a sound quality that is unique in its veracity, enveloping music-lovers in an acoustic embrace and stirring their very souls.

Our Burkhardtsmaier audio systems make it possible to achieve the kind of emotional connection that is experienced by artist and audience during a live concert. Our components are unique in their ability to capture the “Essence of Sound”. Nothing is lost – and nothing is added. Pure and unadulterated, for the perfect listening experience.
Berthold Burkhardtsmaier’s passion for a pure, authentic listening experience has been with him almost since the cradle. He fell in love with music at a young age and while other boys wanted to be train drivers or astronauts, he had his heart set on being a pianist, violinist or conductor. He trained in classical music and learned to play the piano and violin before going on to study electroacoustics at the Technical University of Munich. He can now look back on an intensive 35 years in the world of sound. In the 1980s he designed the sound system for the disco in the German pavilion at the Olympic Games in Seoul.
Burkhardtsmaier audio manufacturers was set up by father and son Berthold and Philipp Burkhardtsmaier. Berthold is the visionary, Philipp the realist. Together they are committed to the production and reproduction of the “Essence of Sound”.
“Perfect sound reproduction is essential in order to experience truly great emotions when listening to music. It is only then that the soul can be moved.”
