Its uncluttered and pleasing appearance and its elegant simplicity have turned the 035 pre-amplifier into one of the favourite products of the Classic Line. The Burmester-designed X-Amp amplifier stages are part of the basic configuration of the 035. Most of them operate symmetrically in Class A and are entirely based on DC coupling. This allowed the sound qualities of the pre amplifiers in the Reference Line and the Top Line to find their way into the 035.
The 035 pre-amplifier combines trailblazing innovations with the design and the ergonomics of a pre-amplifier that will master all requirements of the future. The foremost development goal was to realize the musical features of the bigger brothers 011 and 808MK5, which are viewed worldwide as the standard for all pre amplifiers, in the 035 as well without any compromises. The X-Amp amplification stages are taken from the 011. They operate absolutely balanced in the Class A range and moreover are completely DC coupled.
The elaborate volume regulator is created by an R-2R network that has the same impedance at all volume levels and guarantees an extremely good synchronism down to the lowest volumes, such as cannot be achieved by potentiometers. Encapsulated reed relays with gold contacts realize this perfectly. Today‘s signal sources such as CD players require an extremely quick signal processing. A power supply must meet these requirements atall times and needs to be appropriately dimensioned. The special power supply of the Pre Amp 035 is also never overtaxed even with dynamic music passages so that the warm sound, rich in detail, is always retained.
The 035 enthuses right away after just a few beats: It brings together the warm, comforting sound of the 011 and 808MK5 with easiest control and an aesthetic appearance. Tonally it is unequalled.
The total architecture of the circuitry of the 035 accommodates the development to more complex systems with home theatre solutions. Thus a surround processor can simply be connected by a surround loop. All functions of the 035 can be controlled through the optional BurmesterLink system if necessary. The 035 also provides a tone control that can be switched off if necessary and a balance regulator is available as well. Much is also offered for the vinyl enthusiast: MM and MC modules are available.
