The Classic Line 036 stereo power amplifier combines many amenities of Burmester’s 911 and 956 power amps in a consolidated design. Likewise, it is constructed fully balanced and completely DC-coupled.
The signal path is free of any distorting capacitors. The intelligent protective circuit monitors the 036 during operation for overheating, DC-offset and overdrive.
The transistors of the output stages are placed on the oversized heat sinks that form the sides of the housing. The driver stages, however, are located on a separate internal heat sink. This keeps the wide temperature fluctuations of the heat sinks from shifting the working points of the amplification section.
The power amp 036 has identical amplification stages as the 3-channel power amp 037, the 6-channel power amp 039 or the integrated amplifiers 032 or 082. Therefore, they are dedicated for combination. The resulting “Total Coherence Amplification” (TCA) allows for example a 7-channel system by the combination of 5-channel 039 and 036.
