BURMESTER 069
  • BURMESTER 069

    PriceFrom £42,000.00

    The Reference Line CD player 069 sets the ultimate technical standard for CD playback. Cutting edge technology combined with a proprietary belt-drive system form the technical basis for providing a musical experience of the highest order. Dieter Burmester invented the belt drive for CD players in 1990 and only a year later introduced the first CD player with a belt-driven CD platter to the world market. Like an analog turntable, the belt drive in a CD player provides complete decoupling of the pick-up system, in this case the laser, from any mechanical interference by the motor drive. As a result the data on the CD is read with ultimate precision, translating into the decoding of the smallest musical detail as well as complex acoustic structures. Add to this the latest generation of DA conversion and you know that you will miss nothing on a recording: Spatial resolution, musical timbre, airy highs and deep, controlled bass.

    • Manufacturer's Description

      Design

      The design of the Reference CD player is an expression of Burmester’s philosophy: understated elegance combined with cutting-edge technology and highest-quality manufacturing in a rock-solid housing. The massive construction of the Reference Line enclosures completely isolates sensitive electronics from mechanical or acoustical interference. In short, the 069 CD player is visually and sonically a world-class performer offering unlimited musical enjoyment. The only player topping this performance is the 069 with a dedicated external power supply. It sports extremely powerful toroidal-core transformers, which rigorously separate the currents supplied to the digital and analog sections.

      Handmade

      Like all Burmester components, the belt-drive system is carefully assembled in the Berlin factory. Highly trained technicians connect the platter assembly via belt to the Swiss-made precision motor. The whole unit consists of 708 carefully selected parts, which are assembled into a work of art that has to pass muster in a multifaceted testing and adjustment procedure before shipping.
