What Do you think of Burmester CD player


As we all know this brand is very pricey.
I would like to know comments from Audiogon members who have auditioned the Burmester CD player.

Comparing to other brands, how does it sound ?

I have only heard it briefly at shows. It falls into the detailed clean and highly extended category of audio which I happen to like. I will likely never be conflicted about buying one because of the price as you noted.
Burmester builds for me the absolute best cd players; their sound is very much familiar with the best analoque turntable system without defects; their sound is musical warmth with an incredible wealth of details expressed with an elegant fluid presentation; tonally balanced perfectly, fantastically dynamic with an an outstanding controlled overall energy level, perfect body and solidity with definition and air, resolute and transparent with a soundstage deep, wide and three dimensional like no other I've ever heard. I know almost all of their models. Owned the 001's Top line and then, after a long comparison with Zanden two stacks, Dcs Scarlatti 4 stacks, Spectral sdr-4000, Naim 555, Metronome Kalista with Audio Note Dac-5 Signature, I moved up to the 069's two box reference line. With 069's the music flows dramatically natural with no any coloration. Listen and be amazed.

it's the best integrated CDP ever made.

Best regards,
