Up for sale is
a Burmester 956 MKI power amplifier in black. It works perfectly and if you
haven’t had a chance to hear a Burmester, now is the chance to own one for a
reasonable price! This is a beautifully built amplifier that sounds outstanding.
This unit has
corner damage – see photo. It does not hamper the sound or functionality at all
and just helps to reduce the price from what a flawless version of this
amplifier would cost.
there are only XLR inputs on the rear, plan accordingly!

956 is characterized by a high spatial resolution, warm and melodious sound,
completed by an extremely low distortion factor. Make no mistake, this isn’t a
classic Rowland or tube sound, but it also doesn’t error on the cool side like
some of the upper echelon solid state amplifiers sometimes do. The word I would
use to best describe is musical.
