Burl Audio Releases B80 Mothership – Multichannel AD/DA Converter

Burl Audio has released the B80 Mothership, a new multichannel AD/DA converter. Using a card based system, and a heavy duty 4U chassis, the B80 Mothership employs 10 card slots with 2, 4 and 8 channel AD/DA cards (80 channels max), all with the B2 quality signal path. Every ADC channel has a BX1 transformer and every DAC channel has the latest Burl Audio discrete op-amp, BOPA2, technology.

With a completely configurable AD/DA, a converter for any situation can be realized. If you just mix, load up the B80 with 8 BDA8 cards for 64 channels of mind blowing fidelity. If you track live, 6 BAD4 cards will give you 24 B2 quality inputs, and 4 BDA8 cards gives you 32 channels of outputs. Burl Audio’s intention with the B80 is to create one main chassis that takes care of virtually any music, broadcast or film recording situation.
