BURL B16 Mothership DANTE Chassis

Burl Audio is extremely proud to announce the release of the B16 Mothership, a 2U, two slot adaptation of the revolutionary B80 Mothership (Burl Audio’s famous product). Simply stated, the B80 Mothership has revolutionized digital recording, and now the coveted BURL sound can be found in a smaller, easily transportable B16 Mothership. Using technology developed for the B80, the new B16 Mothership utilizes the exact same I/O cards as the B80 Mothership, building upon Burl Audio’s relentless dedication to analog class-A circuitry. The result can be both heard and felt. The Mothership stands out from every other interface available not only because it is colored, but because it does not neutralize the sound source. On the contrary, it wonderfully enhances the signal and brings out its true musical qualities. Using a card based system, and a rugged 2U chassis, the B16 Mothership features 2 card slots with an internal power supply and your choice of Motherboard for Digilink, MADI, Dante or SoundGrid onnections. Every ADC channel utilizes a proprietary BX1 transformer and every DAC channel features the latest Burl Audio discrete op-amp, the BOPA4. For anyone who has wanted a Mothership in a smaller version, rejoice! A typical setup is a 4 in, 8 out system, but it can also be setup as an 8 input tracking system, or a 16-output portable mix configuration. If necessary, you can also use either the BAES4 card with 4 channels of AES in and out per card, or the BCLK card, which distributes 8 word clock outputs per card.

 

 

BURL B16 Mothership DANTE Chassis Key Features:

  • 2U main chassis
  • BMB3 (DANTE) motherboard
  • 1 BNC Word Clock In
  • 2 BNC Word Clock Out
  • 3 card slots
  • All slots accept AD/DA, AES and BCLK
  • 4 channel input cards and 8 channel output analog cards

Digital interconnect is also completely configurable, and controlled by a swappable motherboard. Burl Audio offers four digital motherboards, the BMB1 (Digi-link) , BMB2 (MADI), BMB3 (Dante), and BMB4 (SoundGrid). The BMB1 comes standard with two DigiLink connectors for direct hookup to Pro Tools.  The BMB2 features two optical MADI ports for use with ASIO or CORE AUDIO PCIe MADI cards. The BMB3 features two Ethernet ports for use with DANTE enabled DAWs and any DANTE enabled device, such as a digital mixing console. The BMB4 card allows for connectivity to any SOUNDGRID device, as well as low latency for a complete digital audio networking solution. The B80 Mothership is the result of over 20 years of tireless research and development. The no compromise, no BS design strategy is immediately apparent in the build quality. There are also plans for film and broadcast grade cards where channel density and price per channel are of greater concern. The B80 MOTHERSHIP takes care of virtually any music, broadcast or film recording situation, revolutionizing pro audio as we know it. In this digital era, many yearn for the tone of records past, and analog tape is becoming a lost art. The B80 MOTHERSHIP clearly bridges this analog to digital gap.
