What they say:



For Top Line

The 216 power amplifier can drive speakers with the lowest impedance values and complex loads easily, to achieve a transparent and spacious sound with superior dynamics.


Power Amplifier

The 216 stereo power amplifier seamlessly joins the legendary family of Burmester power amplifiers that have won many international awards. It combines powerful performance with great dynamics and excellent timing and shines sonically with an impressive spatial stage and musical warmth. The 216 helps even speakers with the lowest impedance values and complex loads achieve a spacious sound image with superior dynamics.


“We have
thought in
exactly the right



With attention to detail.

Recognisable as a typical Burmester even from the very first glance, the 216 power amplifier makes use of characteristic design elements of the Top Line.




As with 218, the 216’s design is derived from Burmester’s flagship 159 Mono Power Amplifier. The 159 passes on its clear lines and the pleasing aesthetics appearance to the more compact models. Especially the screwless processing of the lid and the renunciation of additional decorative elements underline this look.



In the development and manufacturing process, only the best quality components are selected to meet our exacting tolerances. In addition, several days of test runs as well as further intensive quality controls culminating in detailed final listening tests under real conditions are added. Every single assembly receives a 100% inspection according to Burmester quality standards before installation. This elaborate manufacturing process ensures that in the end the customer receives a product that is exceptional in every respect.
