After more than 35 years of experience in the processing of finest audio signals, Burmester now crowns its series of successful phono preamplifiers with a turntable. Recognizable as a typical Burmester even from the very first glance, the 175 turntable makes use of characteristic design elements of the Reference Line. The integrated signal processing derived from the Burmester 100 phono pre-amplifier processes the fine phono signals at the highest level.


The 175 turntable is driven by four motors located in the outer square around the sub-platter. This squaring of the circle and the use of multiple belts ensures that no irregular tension arises on the central bearing. The two-fold design of this arrangement shortens the ramp-up time and improves synchronization. This simultaneously results in an improved sound and a fast-starting time for the drive.


Alongside the mechanical system and the arrangement of the drive components, the control electronics, and the motors are also crucial for a great audio experience. The AC synchronous motors used are driven by digital motor electronics that perform their task with a high-precision oscillator and perfect sine and cosine voltages. The electronics are completely immune to fluctuations in the mains voltage frequency. Due to the high level of efficiency of the electronics, driver stages, and motors, the entire unit remains cool and free from heat-related impairments.


The Highlights:

• Digital motor electronics with a high level of efficiency

• Chassis from a massive aluminum block

• Multi-layer carbon arm tube

• Length of pick-up arm: 9 inches

• Exclusive Burmester MC pickup

• Needle: Shibata cut

• Magnetic damper in floor plate for isolation
