Brinkmann Integrated Amplifier Vollverstarker

Vollverstarker translates in English as "integrated amplifier". To be absolutely correct, we should probably rename our Vollverstarker to "stereo power amplifier with high input sensitivity and a passive line stage". But that is probably the only thing we could still improve on this device. As for the rest, everybody seems to agree that the Vollverstarker has looks to die for and sound that is even better. In the typical Brinkmann manner, the Vollverstarker is reduced to the max, finished perfectly in the smallest of details and optimized for sound without compromise. You'll have to look elsewhere if you're looking for coupling capacitors, ceramic resistors or an on/off switch. Instead you will find servo direct coupling, protection circuits, thick-film and SMD resistors with no or low ceramic content as well as a clever energy and music saving standby function. (Not to mention a headphone output with a dedicated amplifier, a buffered tape output, or a remote volume control.) Thanks to its spiked feet, the Vollverstarker sounds great on every surface – which makes the optional granite plate truly only an option
