Burmester 099 Preamplifier

The development of the new Classic Line preamp 099 was driven by the ever-increasing use of digital music sources. It offers users six inputs for the connection of digital signal sources such as satellite receivers, set top boxes, game consoles or computers.


With Burmester’s award-winning D/A conversion technology all these signal sources are augmented and perfectly integrated into a high-end system.

The sampling rate for digital conversion can be switched between 96kHz/24bit and 192kHz/24bit, depending on personal preferences.

The 099 can be used as a full-value preamplifier, using the volume function, or as pre-preamplifier for an existing preamp with fixed volume.

The Classic Line Preamp 099 belongs to a new generation of Burmester products, distinguished by a very low power consumption of less than 1 Watt in Standby mode.
