The 082 integrated amplifier is a direct descendant of Burmester s larger 032 integrated amplifier. It fits seamlessly into the long line of the internationally acclaimed and award-winning power amplifiers 909, 911, 956 and 036. Despite a slightly smaller power supply in comparison to the 032, the integrated amplifier 082 offers impressive capabilities and almost equals the outstanding sound of the bigger model. The powerful and warm yet detailed sound is the result of a special circuit layout based on balanced, DC-coupled amplification sections. The 082 integrated amplifier combines outstanding sound with easy to understand operation in a convincingly versatile device. The simple operating concept allows easy access to a multitude of different functions.
Display and control elements are located on the front panel milled from solid aluminum. Thanks to this expensive use of material sensitive amplification circuitry is hermetically shielded from any digital signal interferences. The system is continuously kept cool by the proven heat sinks with their characteristic cooling fins, which give all power and integrated amplifiers in the Burmester portfolio their distinctive looks.
Sophisticated computer technology is used to measure, select and pair critical components before assembling them by hand into hardware modules. These modules are then individually tested and carefully checked against a reference device. This extraordinarily tough testing process stands behind the high reliability of Burmester components.
Balanced preamplification stages
Completely DC-coupled without distorting capacitors in the signal path
High damping factor enables effortless control of any speaker over the full frequency range, even at high frequencies
Stable at any load over the entire frequency range
Massive binding posts for speaker cables (best performance with spade lugs!)
A built-in protective circuit outside of the signal path monitors the 082 during operation
with regard to overheating, DC offset and overloading.
Oversized power supply with 82.000 F filter capacity and a 450 VA toroidal transformer.
Additional local filtering at the output stages with low inductive bypass capacitors.
