175 turntable

Joining the vinyl revolution.

After 35 years of experience in the processing of finest audio signals, Burmester now crowns its series of successful phono preamplifiers with a turntable. 

Carbon-aluminum tube tonearm.

Its bearing is a hybrid of steel and ceramic that guarantees clean sampling of the vinyl treasures.

AC synchronous motors.

The multiple belt system ensures no irregular tensions on the central bearing. The two-fold design of this arrangement shortens the ramp up time and improves synchronization.

Platter

The turntable of the 175 record player has a sandwich construction consisting of two layers of aluminum and a further layer of brass in between. This design principle ensures optimal damping and less resultant resonances. The bitumen coating on the back side of the plate increases the damping properties even further. The platter bearing is designed to be maintenance free for life and therefore always ready for use. The sub-platter with a cone allows easy mounting of the platter and is centered automatically for perfect concentricity.

Drive

The 175 turntable is driven by four motors located in the outer square around the sub-platter. This squaring of the circle and the use of multiple belts ensures that no irregular tension arises on the central bearing. The two-fold design of this arrangement shortens the ramp-up time and improves synchronization. This simulta- neously results in an improved sound and a fast starting time for the drive.
