Burmester® Innovations Exclusive to Porsche


Burmester® Air Motion Transformer

This innovative technology features aluminum damping inside the membrane areas for enhanced mass/surface ratios. The final product is a clean, clear, and precise high-frequency sound featuring authentic reproductions of both musical instruments and voices.

Signal Enhancer®

Signal Enhancer® allows the system to prepare data-reduced or compressed files such as MP3. Through the use of this groundbreaking feature, audio is preserved from undesired echo, loss in dynamics, encoding artifacts, or bandwidth restrictions. You’ll immediately notice an enhancement in your overall listening experience.

Auro 3D Format

Tuned specifically for the automotive environment, the Audi 3D format features a pair of tweeters located within the A-pillars to produce table scaling inside the interior. Automatically, input signals are detected and then transferred into authentic 3D surround sound. This unique pattern imitates the same sound in the Belgian music hall of Galaxy Studios, commonly known as the global standard for perfected music playback.
