Burmester® Innovations Exclusive to Porsche

Burmester Audio Technologies

Burmester® Air Motion Transformer

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

Signal Enhancer®

Signal Enhancer® has the ability to prepare data-reduced or compressed sources such as MP3 files. Using this innovative feature, your audio will be protected against undesired echo, loss in dynamics, bandwidth limits, and encoding artifacts. This process helps deliver a noticeable boost to your listening experience.

Auro 3D Format

Another unique characteristic designed specifically for the automotive environment is the Auro 3D format. A pair of tweeters positioned in the A-pillar produce treble scaling inside the cabin. Input signal is detected automatically and then converted into authentic 3D surround sound. This sound pattern recreates the same sound heard in the music hall of Belgian Galaxy Studios, widely considered the global standard for perfected music playback.
