FROM THE Burmester web site:
"The main focus of the 089 belt-drive CD player is the perfect blend of sound, innovation and design. In near ideal fashion the top-loading player unites latest developments with proven technology and a timeless, stylish appearance. For many years now the belt-drive system, developed by Burmester, in combination with sample rate conversion and cutting-edge D/A conversion has set the standards worldwide in CD playback. Inspired by analog turntables the belt-drive system for CD players completely decouples the laser pickup from any vibration of the drive motor. The audible result of the high-precision data readout is an astonishing degree of musicality and spaciousness.
The Burmester-typical chrome front panel characterizes the visual appearance of the 089 CD player. Feeding a CD into the top loader with its smoothly sliding cover is by itself a high-end experience. The vibration-absorbing feet with carbon fiber damping for optimal mechanical decoupling are another link to the Reference Line. The belt-drive unit is encapsulated in a massive low-resonance chamber. All this contributes to the open, airy and detailed musicality Burmester components are renowned for.
Like all Burmester components the 089 CD player is hand-assembled by highly trained technicians in the Berlin factory. Almost all subassemblies are purchased from German suppliers because Burmester takes the quality label “Made in Germany” very seriously. Each unit has to pass a multifaceted testing and adjustment procedure before shipping to ensure that it is in perfect condition
The Top Line 089 Belt-Drive CD Player combines brand-new developments with distinguished technologies from our Reference Line products. The inter- play between the Burmester-invented belt-drive, SRC-function to 96kHz/24bit or 192kHz/24bit with the according conversion, is regarded internationally as benchmark technology. The belt-driven CD Player has the advantage of de- coupling the laser from the drive motor. As a result, the readout of the CD is si- gni cantly higher, because it is not af icted with electrical jitter. The beltdrive is located in a solid, low-resonance chamber.
Due to its two digital inputs and selectable volume control, the 089 has an additional preamplier-function. The digital inputs allow the connection of further external sources. These sources can also bene t from the internal, im- proved D/A-converter (up to 192kHz/24 bit). Music is reproduced at its utmost perfection. Like all Burmester components, the D/A converter is designed with balanced circuit technology. The subsequent lter stages and X-Amp2 output stages, are fully balanced without distorting capacitors in the signal path. For the use of the preampli er function, the 089 is also equipped with an analog input for the connection of analog sources.
Like the 088 Preampli er, the 089 CD Player uses X-Amp2 modules for the out- puts. These modules, formely only used in Burmester Reference Line products, are primarily responsible for the extraordinary sound that has been awarded with numerous reference titles in the past."
