MENTION Burmester Audiosysteme and most audiophiles conjure up images of shiny German hi-fi equipment with swoon-inducing price tags.
There was, of course, the Rondo line launched back in the 1990s that passed for “entry-level” … by Burmester standards. These days, it’s the Classic line that takes up that role, although the price spectrum of the products in this range is broad.
The latest addition to this line is the 101 integrated amplifier, conceived as the ideal partner to Burmester’s entry-level 102 CD player.
Details are sketchy for now … we’re told the 101 is a combination of “efficient Class D power sections and analogue power supply.” And that it adheres to Burmester’s trademark “warm and well-balanced” sound. A “Smooth” switch maintains this quality even when the amp is played soft.
The DC-coupled 101 is a balanced design and incorporates balanced outputs for use as a dedicated preamp … more details will follow when the amp is ready for release.
Till then, drool over all that shiny real estate.
