  Our Turntable

After 35 years of experience in the processing of finest audio signals, Burmester now crowns its series of successful phono preamplifiers with a turntable. The integrated signal processing from the Burmester 100 phono pre-amplifier processes the fine phono signals at the highest level. The Burmester 175 comes as plug-and-play-suite with an cardanic mounted 9-inch tone arm with carbon-aluminium tube. By taking this step, the manufacturer completes the portfolio for fans of analogue sound.

This is just a damn good turntable, more than you
might ever expect as a first shot across the vinyl bows from the brand.



Platter tone arm

The turntable of the 175 record player has a sandwich construction consisting of two layers of aluminium and a further layer of brass in between. This design principle ensures optimal damping and less resultant resonance. The bitumen coating located on the reverse of the platter increases the damping properties even further. The bearing is designed to be maintenance-free for life and therefore always ready for use. The sub-platter with a cone allows easy mounting of the platter and is centered automatically for perfect concentricity.

In addition to the platter, the cardanic mounted 9-inch tone arm with its carbon-aluminium tube intrinsically enhances the 175’s inherently exquisite sound quality. Its bearing in the form of a hybrid bearing of steel and ceramic guarantees the precise delivery of intricate vinyl detail. The anti-skating is gradually adjustable via control knob.

Mechanical System


The 175 turntable is driven by four motors located in the outer square around the sub-platter. This squaring of the circle and the use of multiple belts ensures that no irregular tension arises on the central bearing. The two-fold design of this arrangement shortens the ramp-up time and improves synchronisation. This simultaneously results in an improved sound and a fast starting time for the drive.

Alongside the mechanical system and the arrangement of the drive components, the control electronics and the motors are also crucial for a great audio experience. The AC synchronous motors used are driven by digital motor electronics. The electronics are completely immune to fluctuations in the mains voltage frequency. Due to the high level of efficiency of the electronics, driver stages and motors, the entire unit remains cool and free from heat-related impairments.
