PHASE 3 is an astounding extension to the traditional product lines from Burmester. The new PHASE 3 joins the ultimate demands of sound quality and musical culture with modern lifestyle aesthetics in a perfect blend. The design-oriented concept incarnates both the timelessness of the Bauhaus style steel tube furniture and the industrial charm of modern lofts. PHASE 3 consists of the digital all-in-one receiver, the 161 and two B15 loudspeakers.
Below the all-in-one receiver, 161, is a seperate compartment that can house connected devices like a cable box, satellite receiver an Apple TV or any other connected device. PHASE 3 stands for uncompromising high-end sound, intuitive ease of operation via iPad and the renowned Burmester app. The Burmester app provides fast access to thousands of musical pieces along with multiple streaming services including Tidal and combines all these benefits with the design of a modern living sound system.
The Phase 3 can play via CD, USB, Streaming, Music Server, FM Tuber, Apple AirPlay, Internetradio and it even has Tidal and Highresaudio integration.
The B15 loudspeaker has been perfectly tuned to the design and the high-end sound ambitions of the Phase 3 systems.
The 161 CD Drive cannot just play back CDs, but also rip them in high-end quality that stores their content onto the integrated hard disks. To ensure safety of your valuable music files, the unit contains two mirrored hard drives to back up your data, with a capacity of 2 TB.
