The Burl BDA8 is an eight channel low-jitter Class A digital-to-analogue module to fit the Burl B80 Mothership chassis.
Keeping the signal paths of the Burl BDA8 to a minimum and using a capacitor-less Class A design has resulted in a D/A converter of supreme accuracy, combined with a rare character and musicality. Burl has a reputation for audio excellence and the Burl BDA8 is directly derived from the excellent two-channel B2 Bomber DAC rack unit.
High headroom and great frequency response are the result of the careful design and commitment-to-quality of the Burl BDA8 – no matter what the cost. The Burl sound has a character and body that distinguishes it from many of the more clean-sounding, transparent alternatives.
Low jitter rates are ensured on the BDA8 in the B80 Mothership, by including a highly accurate local crystal clock to regenerate incoming sync code, thus allowing your digital signals to convert at precisely the right time – no vagueness, fuzziness or odd sonic artefacts.
The B80 Mothership will accept up to ten of these little Burl BDA8 workhorses, slipping into the slots – giving you up to 80 channels of DAC with no fuss.
Using the Burl BDA8 lets you hear what you really should sound like – accept no substitute.
