Struss R550 Integrated Amplifier


The Struss R550 is a new generation amplifier, offering an extremely dynamic and detailed sound, while still natural and without the distortions associated with transistor devices. The chief constructor's dream was to obtain the "live music" effect at home. The dream came true after years of work on the Struss R550 the effect of live music with the particular associated system has been reached. Many owners of the Struss R550 amplifier confirm the above opinion. Also Russell Kauffman (Morel Europe) gave the R550 very good feedback, stating that today it is the best and the most powerful amplifier in the world (dual mono). The opinion was formed after many hours of testing of the R550 width the best Morel speakers "Fat Lady".

The Struss R550 amplifier does not possess its own features. Instead, it reinforces exactly what it is given and gives out everything that the speakers can cope with. The technical solutions used are owned by the company and are registered with the numerous patents. The amplified channel constitutes a fully balanced system supplied with two electrolytic compensators with a total capacity of 176 000 uF and two toroidal transformers with a capacity of 2.0 kW (2.8 kW peak), each magnetically and electrostatically shielded. It is the tradition of this company not no include any bipolar transistor in the entire amplified system.

The surreal design is not a matter of chance. The beauty of its compact design is combined with the graphics of one of the most successful post-war Polish artists, the author of many prominent surrealistic works of the contemporary art.

The launch of the new R550 Struss amplifier by the Struss Amplifiers Company proves that the most powerful amplifier in the world (2 monoblocks) can be designed and produced in Poland.

Burmester 101 Integrated Amplifier

The 101 Integrated Amplifier is the latest integrated amplifier in the Burmester product range and a supreme example for the perfect combination of efficient class D power sections and an analogue power supply. With its power reserves thus made available the 101 easily achieves in a compact design the warm and well-balanced sound which is known to be a trademark of the Burmester tone. The switchable "Smooth“ function produces a rounded and detailed sound image even with low volume levels.

Within the Burmester sound world the 101 integrated amplifier commends itself as a perfect game partner for the 102 CD player, notably when combined with the loudspeakers from the Burmester portfolio. The additional balanced outputs also allow to use it as a dedicated preamp or upgrade it with external power amps at a later time.

As you would expect it from Burmester, the 101 also features a balanced circuit layout and is DC-coupled, meaning it dispenses entirely with distorting coupling capacitors in the signal path.

Power output  120 watt
