The 061 CD player has been designed as a top loader with direct drive. The drive unit is based on the CD 2 Pro technology, which is considered state-of-the-art with respect to sound and longevity. In combination with top-quality analog output stages this player guarantees a detailed and musical sound reproduction. The D/A converter of the 061 can be accessed via digital inputs to improve the sound of external digital sources. With its MMI slot the 061 is ready for future upgrades, for example adding optional digital inputs.
Like its bigger brothers from the Reference and Top Lines the 061 CD player is a top loader. The housing has been manufactured from solid rolled aluminum and the guiding rails for the sliding cover offer creamy-smooth operation of the heavy cover. Thus, even feeding the CD into the top chamber is a high-end experience.
Like all Burmester components, the 061 CD player is assembled in a sophisticated manufacturing process in the Berlin factory. The end of this process is always marked by multilayered measuring and listening tests before a unit is given the go-ahead for shipping. Each unit has to pass a set of almost 300 computer-aided measurements before and after a 7-day burn-in phase. The unit advance to the final quality control only if there are no variations between the two sets. It consists of a listening test and a run through all functions.
