Burmester Top Line - 217 Turntable

Machines that produce music and emotions, and fun

The 217 is Burmester’s first turntable introduced to its renowned Top Line series. The 217 prioritizes optimal playback quality above all – and utilizes highly intuitive operability. During the research and development process of the 217, Burmester was able to draw on more than 35 years of processing experience with the highest-quality phono signal and make excellent use of its know-how to offer a broader product portfolio in the vinyl playback field.

Highlights of the 217

The 217 is equipped with two belt drive motors, which enable near-perfect operation due to their high efficiency. In combination with the significant, massive, low-resonance unibody housing made of solid aluminum, this enables exceptionally precise and highly musical reproduction of vinyl records.

Burmester’s 217 turntable builds on its big brother, the 175, in numerous aspects. The unit has a gimbal-mounted, straight tonearm that is naturally cranked by the geometry of the headshell. At the same time, the exact length between bearing and needle tip is 239.1 mm – just over 9 inches.

The tonearm is made of unidirectional fiber composite material in conjunction with aluminum components. The needle used is a Shibata design and the signal from the cartridge is passed on directly via a high-quality phono connection cable.

Each 217 comes with a turntable mat made of composite leather, along with a pre-assembled tonearm including the MC system.
