We are proud to be one of only a handful of dealers in the UK to bring you Burmester's exquisite range of audio products. Burmester products are meticulously engineered and all hand made in Germany. The Burmester sound is simply beautiful with precise imaging across a huge sound-stage with a lovely warm rich sound.

The Burmester power amplifier 956 MK2 combines great power capacity with excellent music timing and dynamics. Its sound is marked by impressive spatial resolution and warmth.  

The 956 MK2 stereo power amplifier is an addition to the legendary amplifier family of the internationally multiple award-winning power amplifier 909. The 956 MK2 delivers an impressive 240 W of clean stable power, the unusually high damping factor with an extremely short rise time to deliver large currents which will drive all speakers with ease. Internal wiring to supply power to the output stages and transfer signals to the speaker binding posts consists of 10 mm high-purity copper wire. This ensures that the high currents of the power amp are transferred without loss to the speakers. This amp coaxes airy sound images and bone-rattling dynamics even from loudspeakers with low impedances and complex loads.


Of course, like all Burmester products for high-end home audio the 956 MK2 power amplifier is also hand-assembled in the Berlin factory and is subject to the same strict quality control procedures. Up to 300 computer-aided measurements are taken before and after a one-week burn-in period. The protocols of these tests are saved and may later be used, if necessary, to return a damaged unit to its original state. They also serve as reference for future upgrades to incorporate technological advances.


The 956 MK2 sports heat sinks in the unmistakable Burmester design that has by now become a classic. Visually as well as technically this power amp incorporates the same design and construction principles that mark its bigger siblings. Just like the 909 and 911, its DC-coupled signal paths are free from distorting capacitors. This guarantees detailed and convincing musicality at any volume and even at difficult orchestral passages. The layout of the circuitry is balanced throughout and together with the Class-A amplification stages provides precise and honest reproduction of any kind of music.
