Burmester 061 + 011 + 911 or 001 + 911

I have a dilema. I currently have Burmester 061 CDP, 051 integrated amp that I use as a preamp and 911 MK3 Amp.

I am thinking about upgrading but I only have limited funds. I am faced with the following 2 options. Please give me some suggestions.
1. Sell 051 integrated amp and get 011 preamp or
2. Sell both 061 CD player and 051 integrated amp and buy 001 cd player that can be used as a digital preamp.

Which one of the above option is better with 911 MK3?
I listen to 60% jazz/vocal jazz, 20% classical and 20% "modern music" (pop, hip pop, electronics and etc)
I recommend option #2. That way if, in the future when the budget allows, you have a reference belt-drive Burmester CDP in which you can always add the 011 pre-amp. Or even better, add the new 088 pre-amp with a built-in DAC module (same as found in the 077) to really elevate the performance of the overall system.

I would think that the second option would likely sound better given that the CDP is superior but why not try both in home and see which one works better for you.
I have to agree with our other members, and choose option #2.
I recommend the following option:

1. Sell 051 integrated amp and the cd player 061
2. Buy 011 and 001

With the superb 911 MK3 you'll complete a great sound system (Burmester Top Line) that will be second to none...

Which loudspeakers you own?

With best regards,
Option #2!
I am currently using Usher Audio CP 777 BE, it's essentially the acclaimed BE 718 with an extra bass/mid range driver.

I am pretty much decided on 089 instead of 088+061 since I have been told that 089 and 088 has the same analog output circuitry. So using 089 as a digital pre-amp driving 911 should sound identical to 089+088+911... right?

Currently, I am deciding between B30 or 961 MK3..... another dilemma....
