I thought the new CD player from Bryston was pricey but the new 061 Classic Line CD Player from Burmester which is being unveiled at the CEDIA expo blows it away. The top-of-the-line model has a dedicated top-loading CD Playback system, a Phillips CD 2 Pro direct drive with a modified servo board and advanced converter technology with switchable upsampling rates of 96 and 192 kHz, and top-of-the-line analog output stages. The top loader is made of milled aluminum with a 10-millimeter thick tray that softly moves on Teflon rails. The 061 CD Player's connection panel includes two digital RCA inputs and outputs, one Toslink optical digital input and output, a balanced XLR stereo output, and two unbalanced stereo RCA stereo outputs. The 061 Classic Line CD Player in silver housing with a chrome front panel has a suggested price of $11,995. Burmester has a variety of high-end uadio products and has also created the sound system for the Bugatti Veyron.
