Best car audio, Burmester? highly disapointed

Just wanted see if anyone else has listened to Burmester audio in Porsche cars. I recently bought a Porsche Panamera Turbo with Burmester audio. If your read car reviews, everyone talks about how the Burmester in Porsceh is one of the best audio systems available today. Really? I am an audiphile and know what is good an bad. the system is calibrated correctly for volume bass, etc, and has power, which I think should be given. But the midrange and mid-highs suck, very raspy an dull. >8-10K Hz things are better, but common... I am highly disappointed!

The system that I built for my SUV, Harmon-Kardon head unit, Alpine amp and Focal speakers, is in a completely different league compared to the Burmester. What a waste of money and the name.
Hey just think how great the home system will sound when you get home......
Too bad about the radio; but it's a hell of a 4 door. Enjoy to the max.

Mark Levinson is the best!!
Nice ride! Our Panny has the bose, which is really awful. Heard the Burmester in a Cayenne and it sounded much better. Hate to mess with aftermarket gear in a car this expensive.
Who listens to audio when you are in a Porsche?
You listen to the car :-)
It sounds like you've probably done a thorough job of going through the setup menus. But just to be sure, have you optimized all of the settings that may be relevant? That would include "listening position," "smooth," "surround," "live," "sound conditioner," "loudness," and "SDV" (speed dependent volume).

Based on reading their descriptions in the manual I would expect that you would want to set "listening position" to "front," and to disable most of the other functions. "Smooth" and "live" being possible exceptions.

I have the Bose system in my Cayman S, btw. In that vehicle and for my purposes (pretty much just listening to satellite radio) it is quite satisfactory.

My wifes 30K Acura TSX cost half as much as my E350 & has twice the stereo system. She's more pissed off about it than I am I think. Although I aint all that happy about it.
Makes me wonder how the Krell system is in the new Acura RLX. That car costs $60k. Thats a chunk-o-change for a Honda. But I'd sure like to listen to and drive one. Oh wait, I mean drive one & listen to it....
The Acura RLX with the Krell package is one of the best car audio setups I have heard from a manufaturer. Th upper roll off is the only complaint I have but it is not too bad.
BEst car speakers I ever had were MB Quart.

BEst electronics: Nakamichi

Together this 90's era combo was the bomb and a fantastic value. Nothing else I have heard close.

MB Quart is still around, but have not heard any in quite some time.
Thanks! for sharing all. There are many differences between th auto manufacturers, w/ surprises along the way! Keep posting.

I'm also interested in a good head unit (for both an old 911 and a VW Vanagon).  Sony has a unit for $1,500 that looks promising...

OTOH, I'd much rather pay $500

I am also a Focal fan.
