If you have ever used anything from Burl Audio, from the build quality, performance and functions, to that rich analog sound, you know they make cream of the crop professional gear. And that is why, it should come as no surprised that they, and their B80 BMB4 Mothership, have been “nominated for the 34th Annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Awards in the category of Outstanding Computer Audio Hardware”.
From the announcement:
Rich Williams, owner and designer of BURL Audio comments "We are honored to receive this nomination in that BURL Audio is an innovator of quality products and we are continually trying to push pro audio to the next level. We firmly believe that the BMB4 with Waves SoundGrid and BURL Audio's analog to digital and digital to analog technology will propel pro audio to new heights."
The Burl Audio B80 Mothership AD/DA Converter Mainframe brings the industrial strength we have grown accustomed to in high-end analog recording, to the digital domain. Discrete Class-A circuitry and premium conversion throughout, the Burl Mothership represents the finest AD/DA digital conversion system available. Simply put, the Burl Audio B80 Mothership has redefined digital recording. For anyone who has felt that digital recording has been lacking soul, warmth and musicality, the Burl Audio B80 Mothership is the answer. Building on the technology of the two-channel B2 BOMBERS, the Burl Audio B80 Mothership was forged from Burl Audios deep dedication to analog class-A circuitry. The result is not only heard, it is felt. The Burl Audio B80 Mothership stands out from every other interface on the market not because it is colored, but because it does not sterilize the source. Take everything the B80 Mothership has to offer, and now add the power of the Waves Soundgrid Network Audio platform (with it's customizable configuration, DSP processing, and sub 1ms latency - to name a few highlights), and you have some serious power at hand.
Front End Audio would like to congratulate everyone at Burl for the nomination they have received here. Their hardwork, dedication, and contributions to the pro audio industry, deserve recognition.
