The integrated amplifier 032 descends from the internationally awarded family of the Burmester power amps 909, 911 MK3, 956 MK2 and 036. Like all Burmester amplifiers, the 032 is fully balanced and completely DC-coupled.
The characteristic Burmester heat sinks have been retained for the 032 as well. The chrome-plated control unit is embedded into the front of the heat sink. The midsection, milled out of a massive piece of brass, encloses the display circuit board and thus shields the sensitive amplifier electronic effectively from any interferences resulting from the display. The solid rotary knob synchronises the volume of both channels via incremental control, which is far superior to conventional potentiometers. This effort is crucial for the sound quality of the 032.
Thanks to its strong 650 VA power supply the 032 is able to deliver stable large currents. Therefore, the 032 is effortlessly capable of driving loudspeakers with low impedance and complex loads. For the integration in home theatre systems, the 032 offers a home theater through-put circuit which bypasses the preamp-section and routes signals directly to the power amp.
The amplification stages of the integrated amplifiers 032 or 082 are identical to the ones of the 3-channel power amp 037, the 5/6-channel power amp 039 or the stereo power amp 036. The resulting total coherence amplification (TCA) allows, for example, the combination of the Burmester multichannel amplifiers 037 and 039 to be perfectly combined with 032 integrated amplifier.
