Burmester - 088 Preamplifier

It benefits from tried and tested developments that already gave the Reference Line 077 preamplifier its superb sound quality. The perfect fusion of sound and design seen in the 088 preamplifier appeals to the senses and is a source of endless delight and listening pleasure.
