The new Burmeister Diva sound system is made of HI-MACS solid surface material. The organically rounded, almost 1.5 m tall speaker sculptures are thermoformed, seamless and as a result, look like they are diecast. With no front and no back, they also do not have any visible cable connections. Diva is produced as an individual bespoke piece. Thanks to the great versatility of HI-MACS, 40 different colours are possible.
HI-MACS is perfectly suited to the special Burmeister technology. The solid surface material permits very little to no vibrations of the housing. As a result, this top-class speaker system generates consistently neutral, unadulterated sound even at high or low volumes.
Thanks to its cube-like, tapered body, the sound is distributed in a sphere-shaped 360° angle. A stereo pair creates a three-dimensional sound space. The core is formed of a carefully selected three-way speaker system and a specially developed diplexer with high-quality components. An innovative bass reflex system offers true deep-tone playback up to 25 Hz. Thus, Diva offers an amazing acoustic and visual experience.
BAS Burmeister Audio Systems develop high-quality hi-fi speaker systems, as well as systems for professional event technology. The aim of owner Jens Burmeister to design Diva was to create a work of art that could be integrated in any installation aesthetically and timelessly. Ultimately the production of the extroverted shape became a challenge. The complex requirements for the housing material could not be sufficiently met by either wood or metal.
Master joiner Andreas Kuhlmann who helped on the project should be given all credit for introducing HI-MACS. The solid surface material offered Jens Burmeister finish and design options with the right high-quality appearance as well as the acoustic properties that he sought. With the solid surface material, Burmeister Audio Systems was able to realise the ambitious concept now bearing the name Diva.
