Like a genuine piece of art can evoke the special feeling of beauty and emotions. This philosophy is applied in the creation of every Kharma product by offering a window to the artistic performance.
In the early eighties Charles van Oosterum founded the company O.L.S.. What appears to be the first brushstroke on an empty canvas that evolved over time to a Dutch masterpiece. During the ongoing strive to create the ultimate audio experience, the Kharma brand was established in the nineties.
“It all started that Friday afternoon in the early eighties”
The name Kharma is derived from the wisdom that all positive energy you put into the world, will eventually come back to you. It is like one of Newton’s laws of physics, every action has its equal and opposite reaction. With this in mind, we design, engineer and produce Kharma products every day.
A perfect sound representation in a luxurious design with far-reaching attention to detail and technology, build with craftsmanship out of unique materials is what can be expected of Kharma. Over the years Kharma has achieved an unique reputation and style, realized by a team of highly dedicated, committed specialists. Who all experience high-end audio as a passion instead of a job.
“When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece” – John Ruskin
With every piece of art the creator has a palette of colour and flavours to choose from, to be able to evoke a feeling of true beauty. During the creation of a high-end audio product this is not any different. Our Kharma palette consists of more than 30 years of experience, new technological insights and the best selected materials. With this generously filled palette, Kharma has created several products on the journey to realize the Holy Grail in high-end audio.

To achieve the most beauty in a piece of art, the boundary conditions must also be fulfilled perfectly. The placement in the room and framework must be right on the spot. Therefore Kharma does not only include extraordinary loudspeakers, but also offers the components to realize the complete picture.
The ongoing eager to create and design masterpieces does not stop at high-end audio products. If you are always working on creating the ultimate music representation in a beautiful package, you start wondering what would complement the collection of extraordinary finished loudspeakers, astonishing electronics and refined cables. The best listening sessions take place while seated, so why not create a luxurious piece of furniture that increases the synergy and ultimate listening experience of a Kharma system.
Kharma embodies the seeking to ultimate beauty, where it converges audiophile excellence with aesthetic beauty. As true beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, Kharma offers the opportunity to unlock all custom desires and go beyond imagination.
“Go where your dreams take you”
The level of customization is in the hands of each customer. The personalization can be as simple as selecting a different colour for the lacquer finish to upgrading the technical performance. All keeping the ultimate dream in mind.
“The results will excite the senses in every way”
Kharma will continue to broaden and explore their palette of experience, technology and materials to be able to create new pathways towards the Holy Grail in High-End audio. Treasuring the value of ‘karma’ in the creation of every Kharma product. The subtle vibrations that a Kharma system offers are capable of stirring up deep personal emotions, which have to be experienced to be believed. Do not take these words for granted.
