The 101 Integrated Amplifier is the latest integrated amp in Burmester’s portfolio. It is a sterling example for the perfect combination of efficient Class D power amplification with an analog power supply. With its available power reserves this compact component provides the warm and well-balanced sound that says unmistakably Burmester. The switchable „Smooth“ function guarantees a smooth, yet detailed sound even at low playback levels. The addition of balanced preamp outputs open the door to using the 101 as pure preamplifier by adding separate power amplifiers at a later date.DesignThe elegant and simple chromed front panel is augmented by a row of glossy polished buttons for input selection. A striking design element is the solid turn knob for volume control. Sound-wise and stylistically the 101 integrated Amplifier is the ideal partner for the 102c CD player.HandmadeBurmester is famous for excellent amplifier technology. That was reason enough for the Burmester development team to accept the challenge of developing its own solution for Class D amplification. This proprietary Class D module is carefully assembled by hand in their Berlin factory and integrated with the other sub-assemblies.
