BURL B22 ORCA Control Room Monitor card for B16/B80

Posted on: Thursday 19th of December 2019

BURL Audio have introduced “the ultimate in control room monitoring for the B16 and B80 Mothership”: the B22 ORCA Control Room Monitor daughter card. The B22 ORCA utilizes the same analogue, all-discrete circuit path philosophy as other BURL Audio products with an emphasis on sonic transparency and 3D stereo imaging.

Featuring the BURL NextGen BOPA14 op-amps, the B22 delivers “tight bass and high definition throughout the audio spectrum”. The B22 ORCA employs 4 DAC channels. The first two are mix/mastering grade DAC channels with switchable BX5 output transformers. These channels can be used to feed a separate headphone amp or a mix/mastering chain. You can also use these channels to send out tracks for analog processing. The second two DAC channels feed the main monitor section which features two stereo speaker outputs and one stereo headphone output.

Couple the new B22 ORCA Control Room Monitor daughter card with a B16 Mothership and a B4 MIC/LINE input card and you have an amazing audiophile desktop recording rig. Or, combine the B22 ORCA with a B16 and a BAD4M and you have the ultimate 4 in x 4 out mastering solution.

• 4-channel DAC MOTHERSHIP daughter card
• Direct coupled, discrete, class-A analog signal path
• BURL NextGen BOPA14 op-amps
