BURL adds daughter to mothership with ‘ NextGen Analog’

Posted on: Wednesday 7th of November 2018

The BDA4 transformer coupled, 4-channel digital-to-analogue converter Daughter Card for the B80 and B16 MOTHERSHIP is the result of over 25 years of R&D experience in pro audio digital and analogue design. Following on the success of the B2 BOMBER DAC and the BDA8 for the MOTHERSHIP, the BDA4 utilises the newly developed BOPA14 with BURL Audio’s ‘NextGen Analog’. The BOPA14 is followed by the BX5 output transformer used in the B32 VANCOUVER MIX BUS. BURL say the new BOPA14 is the result of: “hundreds of hours of listening tests”. The BOPA14 is an all discrete, class-A op-amp with a minimal number of transistors.

New BURL Audio products and some existing BURL Audio products will implement these BURL ‘NextGen Analog’ designs. The BOPA11 will replace the BOPA1 found in the B2 BOMBER DAC and the B26 ORCA CONTROL ROOM MONITOR. The BOPA14 will replace both the BOPA2 found in the B32 VANCOUVER MIX BUS and the BOPA4 found in the BDA8. The BAD8 already employs the BURL NextGen Analog technology, though it does not use op-amps.

Products that will continue with the classic BURL analogue sections will be the B2 BOMBER ADC, the BAD4, B1 and B1D mic pres. The new designs are said to “feature tighter bass and higher definition throughout the audio spectrum. Instruments and mixes have a more 3D sound, with wider stereo image and even more depth.”
