Like its bigger brothers from the Reference and Top Lines the 061 CD player is a top loader. The housing has been manufactured from solid rolled aluminum and the guiding rails for the sliding cover offer creamy-smooth operation of the heavy cover. Thus, even feeding the CD into the top chamber is a high-end experience.
Like all Burmester components, the 061 CD player is assembled in a sophisticated manufacturing process in the Berlin factory. The end of this process is always marked by multilayered measuring and listening tests before a unit is given the go-ahead for shipping. Each unit has to pass a set of almost 300 computer-aided measurements before and after a 7-day burn-in phase. The unit advance to the final quality control only if there are no variations between the two sets. It consists of a listening test and a run through all functions.
