Burmester: 051 ~ Review

Positive:
To be honest, I have never owned anything like this little amplifier before, and I had many.

Negative:
You need to pair it with truly high-end gears. Do not make a mistake to hook up with a $2000 value speaker.
It will not shine ever. You only will get the quality with top high-end speakers and sources, which makes it no sense to own it, without having money for the rest of the system. I hate those xlr cables, because I needed to replace my cables to get the best out of it. :-)

Detailed description:

I hate to describe my gears, but if I need to, I would say, I have never heard that much information from my favourite musics before. Like my speakers were placed behind curtains. With this amp, I was able to hear everything iwas printed on my recordings. I paired with my Monitor Audio GX300 speakers, and the source was a Cambridge Audio 851 dac-cdplayer. Cables were Acoustic Zens.
It is a true high-end contender.
Just pure music, nothing else. I wish to have the money to try they higher models.
