The smaller stereo power amplifier 036 offers many of the same sonic features of Burmester s bigger and more imposing power amps, only in an elegantly compact size. Its high damping factor and high-performance power supply are expressions of Burmester s design philosophy. Fast signal processing and the ability to deliver high currents were foremost design criteria for this amp. They are responsible for its remarkably detailed and homogeneous sound. Agility in the upper registers and a deep bass with loads of power reserves characterize this newest member of the Burmester power amp family.
Though it is Burmester s smallest amp, the 036 still sports the classic silver-anodized aluminum cooling fins. While its overall visual appearance may be more modest its sound and power reserves leave no doubt that the 036 is a genuine Burmester amp that can deliver spectacular sound.
As the smallest member of the Burmester power amp family, the 036 is also assembled by hand in the Berlin factory with the same attention to detail and the use of carefully selected parts as its larger siblings. The solid aluminum lid hides the fact that this amp, too, is build with highest-quality parts and its clean and tidy circuit layout bespeak the care and thoroughness of the design and manufacturing process.
Bridgeable into mono operation by external mono adapters or internally at the factory when
ordering a pair of 036 mono amps
Bi-amping with the use of external bi-amping adapters
Balanced circuitry throughout like all Burmester components
Input stages in proprietary X-Amp technology (Class A)
Low overall negative feedback
Signal path completely DC-coupled, no distorting capacitors
High current delivery capabilities due to an oversized power supply
High damping factor enables effortless control of any speaker over the entire frequency
range, even at high frequencies
Stable at any load over the entire frequency range
Massive binding posts for connection of speaker cables (use only spade plugs!)
Remote on/off switching in connection with Burmester pre-amps and D/A converters with
variable output (remote control current: 10V DC)
A protection circuit outside of the signal path monitors the 036 during operation for overheating, DC offset and overdrive.
Balanced inputs (stereo/mono)
Unbalanced inputs by using the supplied adapters (only in stereo mode)
10V DC input for remote on/off switching by Burmester pre-amps and Burmester D/A converters with variable output
