BURL Audio BDA8 8-Channel D/A Daughter Card for B80 Mothership

8-channel digital-to-analog daughter card for the B80 Mothership with proprietary BOPA14 discrete, Class A op-amp

Product Description

The Burl Audio BDA8 is a state-of-the-art digital-to-analog converter daughter card for the B80 Mothership. Featuring eight channels of pristine audio conversion, Burl’s NextGen analog circuit and the BOPA14 discrete Class A op-amp, the BDA8 is the ultimate DAC.

Classic Analog Circuit Path

The BDA8 digital-to-analog converter daughter card is the result of over 25 years of research, development and experience. This world-class converter utilizes the exact same Class A discrete transistor circuit path as the best-selling B2 Bomber analog-to-digital converter. The BDA8 offers eight channels of Burl’s renowned audio quality in a compact daughter card format with DSUB connectivity for added flexibility.

BOPA14 Op-Amp

The BOPA14 with BURL NextGen Analog is the result of hundreds of hours of listening tests. It boasts stunning clarity and definition and raises the bar of excellence in pro audio analog electronics fidelity. The BOPA14 is an all discrete, Class A op-amp with a minimal number of transistors. If you thought the original BOPA4 sounded good, this analog design will blow your mind with tighter bass and higher definition throughout the audio spectrum.

Each daughter card is equipped with transformers in the input stage and op-amps in the output stage, combining the flexibility and pristine sound of digital audio with the character and attitude of an all Class A discrete signal path. Perfect for home studios, commercial recording studios and post-production houses and broadcast facilities, the Mothership can be customized to suit any session.

Huge upgrade from my avid Omni. More depth and wider stereo imaging. I can’t believe I ever mixed without it!

By Kiel B on July 7, 2020

I recently made the switch to a Burl Mothership conversion system. I was previously using a system that had individual ports for each input and output, which made hooking up my patch bay or simply moving something on it a nightmare. I was so happy to find out that the BDA8 connects completely through DB25 cables, it took less than an hour to integrate it into my existing setup. The first couple sessions I recorded and mixed through the new system were night and day compared to my old rig. Everything was clearer and louder without as much signal, giving me more headroom to add EQ and compression down the road. I finally know what all the hype is behind Burl conversion and officially hooked for life.

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.

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.
