For Top Line
The Phono Preamplifier 100 combines the best features for the perfect analogue sound. It was designed to provide record lovers the best possible sound quality and the digital preservation of their analogue collections.
With his latest phono preamplifier 100 Dieter Burmester picks up where he left off with his highly regarded and successful phono stage 838 from the Eighties. The 100 is pure catnip for analog fans. By harking back to a component that had been state-of-the-art for so long and bringing it with all available innovations into the 21. Century, Burmester not only gave LP lovers a new playback reference but also the technology to digitize their LP collection on the highest musical level. With a lot of top-notch engineering and design plus highest-quality parts the phono preamp 100 combines innovative technology and world-class analog playback in a practical tool for the digital music era.
Detailed impressions of the 100 Phono Preamplifier.
The design of the Phono Preamplifier 100 is directly derived from elements of the Top Line and thereby recognizable as an iconic Burmester product.
The classic chrome front panel immediately shows the versatility of this phono preamp. The array of toggle switches actuates a multitude of functions for playback, control and adjustment. The prominent VU meter is not a nostalgic design gesture but a necessary instrument to show the amplitude of the left and right channel as well as their mono sum. At the same time it displays any imbalances between left and right channel at a quick glance.
Whether in a basic configuration or fully equipped, each 100 phono preamplifier is assembled by hand in the Berlin factory by highly qualified technicians. A final multi-stepped quality and listening test checks not only each switch and every functionality but also makes sure that the sound is up to reference standard.
