Rutherford Audio Inc. Seattle, Washington United States
In the beginning there was music. Especially for Dieter Burmester. Before he started engineering school he toured as guitarist with a professional rock band. And it was his love of music that made him abandon the development of electronic measuring devices for the medical profession and start his own business as designer of high-end audio equipment.
His company, Burmester Audiosysteme GmbH, founded in 1977, quickly rose to the top of the German high-end industry. Today, it is one of the most respected names among manufacturers of highest-quality stereo systems worldwide.
Its products range from the newest Phono Pre Amp, Pre-Amplifiers and Power Amplifiers, CD players, D/A Converters, Power Conditioners, Loudspeakers and accessories. On offer are several product lines which vary in price but not in their dedication to quality and the highest in musical performance.
