For Top Line
The 088 preamplifier is simple and intuitively operated for a relaxed listening experience. Following the long-established Burmester tradition, it perfectly melds high-quality sound with attractive visual experience.
Detailed impressions of the 088.
The design of the 088 preamplifier is directly derived from elements of the Top Line and thereby recognizable as an iconic Burmester product.
Two large rotary dials for input selection and volume control dominate the classic chrome front panel of the 088 preamplifier. Different operating modes may be selected using chromed toggle switches on the front panel. The engraved Burmester signature and the model moniker above the power switch, which can be used to switch the 088 on, off or into standby mode, round out the visuals. The rear panel offers the full range of possible connections.
The exquisite chrome front panel, typical for Burmester’s Top Line components, is manufactured in a complex process by carefully chosen suppliers. It immediately indicates the overall built quality relying on highest-quality parts. Even the small screws for bolting the front panel to the housing are individually chrome-plated and checked for perfect quality.
