The rich history of Kharma
Kharma is well known for its rich history and innovations in high-end audio. The journey started in the early eighties, but before that the passion was already sparked. When Charles van Oosterum was just a boy of fourteen year old, he went looking for old radios at antique garage sales to be able to take them apart at home. Charles would take the speakers out and give them a new cabinet to see what happened to the sound. This transformation of sound grasped Charles deeply and after this the incredible journey in high-end audio started. Exploring every option that could possibly enrich the sound and perfect the experience. Many prototypes and products have followed, where the continuous eager for improvements appeared to be endless. For Charles, Kharma is the definition of a lifelong journey in high-end audio beyond imagination.
