Burmester 956 MK II (latest version II) :
The stereo power amplifier 956 MK2 extends Burmester’s power amp
portfolio consisting of the legendary 911 and 909, which have garnered
international renown. The 956 MK2 offers an unusually high damping
factor with an extremely short rise time to deliver large currents. Thus
it combines loads of power with great dynamics and excellent musical
timing. Its sound is marked by impressive spatial resolution and warmth.
Internal wiring to supply power to the output stages and transfer
signals to the speaker binding posts consists of 10 mm high-purity
copper wire. This ensures that the high currents of the power amp are
transferred without loss to the speakers. This amp coaxes airy sound
images and bone-rattling dynamics even from loudspeakers with lowest
impedances and complex loads.
The 956 MK2 sports heat sinks in the unmistakable Burmester
design that has by now become a classic. Visually as well as technically
this power amp incorporates the same design and construction principles
that mark its bigger siblings. Just like the 909 and 911, its
DC-coupled signal paths are free from distorting capacitors. This
guarantees detailed and convincing musicality at any volume and even at
difficult orchestral passages. The layout of the circuitry is balanced
throughout and together with the Class-A amplification stages provides
precise and honest reproduction of any kind of music.
This was very well priced ($20,000 instead of $35,000) one down amp from the 911 MK III. Great looking unit only 1" shorter than the 911 MK III.
Into 4 ohms it has 250 watts per channel stereo or 500 watts mono blocked compared to the 911 MKIII's 350/770. Sounds virtually indistinguishable to the legendary 911MK-III at a fraction of the price.
Serial # 561042 / 8+ out of 10 Condition.
Price each (second unit available / sold separately)
If you purchase two amplifers (sold separately) Weinhart Design will include custom mil spec Silver handmade Y cables for mono blocking.
Original box, missing top in-certs (see pictures).
No power included.
Two amps can be mono blocked for 500 wpc (more than a single stereo 911 MKIII for cost of a single 911 MK III or, only a little less that the 770 wpc for TWO, mono blocked, 911s).
For mono block operation offer/include my two custom "Y" all silver cables as (the Burmester system takes a balanced XLR feed and splits it into unbalanced inputs to push pull mono block their amps).
