Hi all,

I consider to switch from my Devialet 800 to Pre+Power of Burmester, and 808 MK5 is on my list.
I didn't found in manual if 808 MK5 has Pass through option to connect Cinema processor.
Does it ?

Thanks in advance.

I found the answer for my above question , yes it does, only balance input though.

Have another question, hope someone will see it soon.
since 808 MK5 has separate power supply , do i really need to look for decent power conditioner like Burmester 948, or 808 MK5 doesn't really need it since it has quality power supply ?

Thanks

Default power conditioner

yes, a high quality conditioner is a must. It will benefit your whole system. The power supply in 808 functions differently than a dedicated power conditioner. The power supply of 808 is to supply enough power and headroom for playback and also stabilize incoming voltage from wall plug. (from what I know, the power supply in all Burmesters also have filters to filter out some noise matching those model's specifications)

The power condition, on the other hand, depending on different models works with different philosophies to clean up power.

The 948 does the following things. (just what I know for sure)
- get rid of direct current
- supplying power that is smooth with perfect sine wave by phase correction
