Burmester 102 CD Player

The 102 CD player from Burmester’s Classic Line combines a purist and elegant appearance with the traditional high standards in manufacturing quality and musicality. Its ideal playing partner within the Burmester portfolio is the 101 integrated Class-D amplifier, especially when combined with a pair of Burmester loudspeakers.


The 102 is a direct-drive CD player with a front-loading CD drawer. Thus, it can easily be integrated into an audio system where space is tight.

User-friendliness was the guiding light in developing the control layout. Consequently, chrome buttons on the front panel can quickly and easily activate all important functions.

The sophisticated analog output stages receive their signals from a latest-generation conversion unit. It offers different upsampling rates, which may be selected according to personal preferences.

All incoming digital stereo signals are converted by a sample rate converter to the sampling frequency (96 kHz or 192 kHz) selected by the user.
