Burmester 077 Reference Preamplifier

The legendary 777 Preamplifier, invented and built by Burmester in 1977, is regarded as the foundation of success for Burmester Audiosysteme. On the occasion of the company’s 30th anniversary in 2007, Burmester once again introduced an exceptional pre amp. At present, the 077 is the most versatile pre amp in their lineup and joins smoothly into the league of the internationally awarded Burmester pre amps.

Burmester's prime design goal was to match the sonic excellence of the 808 MK5, which is regarded worldwide as the audiophile gold standard, and to do this without compromise in such a complex and versatile piece of equipment as the 077.
The unit’s logical controlling concept guarantees easy-going listening pleasure, and the clear design lines speak for themselves. Above all, its inner values are especially convincing.


The self-balancing phono-stage is only one of its cutting-edge innovations. It allows the 077 to equalize channel disparities and to project a perfect virtual sound stage into the room. Due to its module slot for one of four optional modules, the 077 is prepared for all eventualities. The integrated surround thruput allows the perfect integration into home theatre systems. Further unbeatable arguments of our anniversary product are the X-Amp 2 amplification stages and the advanced control via BurLink. The 077 is available with integrated or external Reference Line power supply.
