Burmester 102 Classic CD Player

The 102 CD-Player from Burmester’s Classic Line is the harmonious combination of an elegantly purist design and a high-quality standard of musicality. The 102 is a direct-drive CD-Player that can be easily integrated into a more compact audio system.

The 102 CD player from Burmester’s Classic Line combines a purist and elegant appearance with the traditional high standards in manufacturing quality and musicality. Its ideal playing partner within the Burmester portfolio is the 101 integrated Class-D amplifier, especially when combined with a pair of Burmester loudspeakers. The 102 is a direct-drive CD player with a front-loading CD drawer. Thus, it can easily be integrated into an audio system where space is tight. The sophisticated analog output stages receive their signals from a latest-generation conversion unit. It offers different upsampling rates, which may be selected according to personal preferences.


The direct drive Classic Line 102 CD Player contains a maximum-quality, high-end D/A converter that displays all of the essential characteristics of the converter found in the 061 CD Player. The digital inputs can be used for connecting external audio sources, such as a television set-top box or a blu-ray player, to the converter. All incoming digital signals are converted to the preferred sampling frequency (96kHz or 192kHz) by a sample rate converter.
Thanks to its modern converter technology and painstakingly optimised overall design, the 102 features a sound quality that advances the CD player to a whole new level. The extremely sophisticated analogue output stages obtain their signal from a converter section of the latest generation, with switchable upsampling rates (96 kHz und 192 kHz) to guarantee a highly defined and musical sound.
Just like the other CD players in the Burmester product range, the 102 contains balanced circuitry with a fully DC-coupled signal path, and no coupling capacitors getting in the way of the signal. The glossy display has several dimming levels and can also be switched off completely if desired. Thanks to its clear and intuitive structure, the user can familiarise himself with the CD player instantly. Furthermore, all functions of the 102 can be controlled through the BurLink interface, using a media control system such as Crestron™ or AMX™.
