BURL Audio BDA4M-1111 4-Channel D/A Daughter Card for B80 Mothership

Mastering-grade 4-channel DAC card for B80 with switchable BX5 output transformer, NextGen BOPA11 proprietary op-amp, and front panel attenuation
MFR# B80-BDA4M-1111

Product Description

The BURL Audio BDA4M-1114 is a mastering-grade DAC with stepped attenuators and switchable output transformers. Specifically designed for mixing and mastering, the BDA4M uses the latest BURL NextGen analog for superior fidelity and clarity.

The BDA4M, switchable transformer coupled, 4-channel digital-to-analog converter Daughter Card for the B80 MOTHERSHIP is the result of over 25 years of R&D experience in pro audio digital and analog design. Following on the success of the B2 BOMBER DAC and the BDA8 for the MOTHERSHIP, the BDA4M utilizes the BOPA11 op amp. They are followed by the renowned BX5 output transformer used in the B32 VANCOUVER MIX BUS. The BOPA11 is ideal for monitoring, with maximum clarity, detail, and minimal distortion.

The BURL BX5 output transformer is the same large, BURLY beast used in BURL Audio’s renowned B32 VANCOUVER MIX BUS. Anyone who has tried B32 for the first time and engages the BX5 usually says “WHOA! That’s amazing!”. Forget about technical jargon, the BX5 transformer simply makes things sound bigger, phatter, deeper…better.

For years, engineers have taken their fully digital projects and run them through a 2-track analog tape machine to make them sound “less digital”. The BDA4M with the BX5 output transformer routed to a BAD8 or BAD4 with the BX1 input transformer does something very similar, but better, in that there is no tape hiss and there is higher dynamic range and more headroom.

On the digital side, the BDA4M employs a couple of new features; a switchable DAC filter and AVID delay matching. Switching the DAC filter allows you to change the tone from the classic BURL sound to a more aggressive tone with a more forward mid-range. The AVID delay matching allows you to perfectly match the output delay of an AVID IO which is crucial for hardware inserts.

If you already own a B80 MOTHERSHIP or if you are buying a new one, the BDA4M is awesome by itself or as a compliment to the super clear BDA8. Adding even just one BDA4M to your MOTHERSHIP will be a big step up. The BDA4M is truly BURLY.

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!

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.

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.
