The 039 is a 6-channel power amplifier.. It can keep supplying high current in a seemingly effortless manner, and can thus easily power loudspeakers with low impedance values and very complex loads. Although 039 is a 6-channel device, it can be bridged for mono operation via an external Y bridge cable, which turns it into a 3-channel amplifier.A special feature of the 037 and 039 are their extremely high damping factors. This high damping factor coupled with the ability to quickly deliver large amounts of current enable the amp to effortlessly drive virtually any loudspeaker over its wide frequency response. The 037 and 039 are capable of delivering high currents continuously and thus easily controlling speakers with low impedance values and complex loads. The frequency response is practically load-independent. Very good spatial resolution, natural musical warmth and negligible distortion characterize the sound of the 037 and 039.
The 037 and 039 are widely acclaimed for their naturally warm musicality and detailed imaging. The 037 and 039 are unsurpassed in their ability to extract the smallest sonic detail from the world’s best speakers even at extreme volumes and this makes them ideal amplifiers
for Home Theatre applications.
Like all Burmester components the 037 and 039 are completely hand crafted in Berlin. The extremely tight tolerances of parts and electronic components we use can otherwise be found only in aerospace and military applications. Every amp has to go through a one week burn-in under load. This procedure plus an intelligent protection circuit outside of the signal path give the amp ist high reliability even under extreme conditions.
