077 Preamplifier

The corner stone of the worldwide success of Burmester Audiosysteme was set in 1977 with the launch of the legendary 777 preamplifier. To celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2007 the company introduced another extraordinary preamplifier, the 077. Its self-adjusting phono stage can automatically compensate for any channel imbalances of pickup systems. The result is a more precise and extended soundstage. Additional attractions of this anniversary model are its X-Amp2 amplification stages and its control via the innovative BurLink technology. Its exquisite sound and versatile functionality are an homage to the world-renowned high-end icon 808. Operating the 077 is intuitive and does not distract from a relaxed listening experience. Its visual appearance bespeaks the typical Burmester design language.


Description

Since 1977 Burmester Audiosysteme has been manufacturing high-end audio components of unsurpassed quality. From the very beginning, the objective has been to create a perfect blend of highest-quality sound, technological innovation, and timeless design. Highly trained technicians assemble all Burmester components by hand in its Berlin factory. Because “Made in Germany” is a label that is taken very seriously by Burmester. Burmester’s research and development department constantly strive to not only keep up with the latest advances but to set its own trends and standards. From the first design sketch via a number of prototypes to the final product shipped from the Berlin factory: each component that bears the Burmester name has been developed in its entirety in-house. As an audio pioneer, Burmester has created a number of legendary components that have become icons of the high-end audio universe.

Burmester considers himself as a guardian and mediator of our musical heritage. The innovative technologies and the highest-quality parts used in the audio components ultimately serve only one purpose, namely, to give full access to the music. By listening to recordings of Elvis Presley, Herbert von Karajan or the Beatles you can bring the full spirit of music into your living room that no concert stage in the world can offer you anymore.
