The Burl Audio B2 Bomber ADC is a two-channel analog to digital converter designed to recreate the warmth and feel of analog tape recordings. Equipped with an all Class A, discrete transistors, the B2 Bomber ADC delivers the ultimate analog tone when recording, mixing or mastering.
Your sound is only as strong as the weakest link in your signal chain. Vintage mics, tube preamps, and analog outboard gear are great for adding color and character to performances, but running your signal through a cheap ADC will leave it sounding weak and sterile. If you want true analog tone, you need an ADC designed to compliment the rest of your signal chain.
The B2 Bomber ADC utilizes a revolutionary hybrid circuit to achieve the tone and depth of classic analog recordings. Equipped with the proprietary BX1 transformer, and a discrete Class A, zero feedback, zero capacitor signal path, the B2 Bomber ADC delivers unparalleled tonal balance.
The Burl B2 Bomber ADC offers flexible routing for connecting to an array of digital audio devices. In addition to standard XLR audio and BNC word clock inputs, the Bomber features connections for SPDIF, Toslink and two AES outputs.
The Bomber ADC features a clean, sleek, intuitive interface that looks great in any studio. Quickly dial in the perfect amount of saturation with the audiophile-quality six-position attenuator. Keep an eye on your signal using the high-definition meter with simultaneous RMS and peak indication. Push the Bomber into the red for pure analog distortion, or back off for a more transparent sound. No matter how you use it, the B2 Bomber ADC will be the most significant piece of gear in your studio.

f you wanna start releasing top notch music then you must start with top notch gear. For all you ITB guys. Keep on mixing that way!! Better for me!! As for BURL the sound is amazing. You have a customer for life!!
The recording process has changed a lot over the years. In the past, engineers used tube mics and analog preamps to record instruments directly to analog tape. The combination of unique tones from those three pieces of gear added a very pleasing texture to the music created.
While it’s still extremely common to see analog preamps and tube mics in a modern studio setting, tape machines are a somewhat rarer bird. While you'll still find them in many studios, the industry-wide shift to working in the box has made bypassing tape a somewhat more feasible practice. Because of this, many engineers feel that modern music is missing something. Continue reading →
In the world of modern audio, all roads lead to digital. Some of those audio paths are smooth and quiet as fresh asphalt, while others are made of grooved concrete that offer up road noise. No matter the route, BURL Audio'sB80 Mothership is capable of transforming your audio unlike any other converter.
At BURL Audio, the transition from analog to digital, or vice versa, is about far more than the accuracy of binary digits. It’s about what they like to call "soul power." When you hear a playback that sounds larger than life - that’s soul power. When you hear a playback and can’t believe it’s your performance – that’s soul power. When you hear a playback that just sounds like a record, even before it’s processed – that’s soul power. BURL Audio's B80 Mothership gives you that power and will be the vehicle for your journey to audio riches. Continue reading →

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
Better than expected! Truly impeccable service. Your team was professional, knowledgeable, provided speedy delivery above and beyond standard. Vintage King Audio is definitely my go to for all of my audio and information needs.
