The 032 Integrated Amplifier offers a wide variety of connectivity that far exceeds the normal range of integrated amplifiers. A PRE OUT output, for example, allows the connection of a separate power amplifier or the central volume control of different listening zones within a multi-room application. With its mighty 650 VA power supply the 032 Integrated Amplifier effortlessly delivers continuous high current in order to perfectly control even large speakers with low impedance and complex loads. Excellent special resolution and musicality are the hallmarks of the 032.
The heat sinks in typical Burmester design keep the 032 cool even under full power. The chromed control element is located on the front in between the attractive heat sinks the front. This mid-section milled from solid brass encompasses the display circuitry and protects it effectively against any unwanted spurious noise radiating on parts of the amplifier processing audio signals. The solid rotary knob switches both channels identically via an incremental encoder.
During assembly the transistors are carefully connected to the generously dimensioned heat sinks on both sides via a massive block of copper which takes care of optimal heat distribution and dissipation. The driver stages are installed on a separate internal heat sink. This prevents working point drift of the driver stages due to large thermal fluctuations in the heat sinks of the amplification stages. In the final assembly step the high-chrome control element is gently connected to the complex innards of the integrated amp.
