The Top Line 089 belt-drive CD player combines a number of new features with the familiar Reference Line technology. Burmester’s combination of belt drive, a sample rate conversion (SRC) function of 96kHz/24bit or 192kHz/24bit and corresponding conversion has been the global benchmark for many years.

On account of its two digital ports and its optional volume control, the 089 can also be used as a preamplifier. The digital ports of the 089 make it possible to connect other external digital devices via the improved internal DAC converter and to achieve a superb level of sound quality (up to 192kHz/24 bit).
