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

The 088 preamplifier perfectly melds high-quality sound with attractive visual appearance. Its operation is simple and intuitive and guarantees a relaxed listening experience. As a member of the Burmester preamplifier family it profits greatly from technological and engineering advances that mark, for example, the performance of the Reference Line preamp 077. Among them are the proven dual-mono design for optimal channel separation, resonance-damping carbon fiber suspension for best insulation from mechanical interferences and DC-coupled signal paths without distorting capacitors for precise bass reproduction.
