Top-of-the-line D-to-A circuitry

Burl Audio's B2 Bomber DAC starts off strong with a phenomenal pair of digital-to-analog converters. Time after time, the unique proprietary design of these converters has passed the most important test of all - real studio engineers in high-profile studios around the world swear by them. What's more, the ultra-low-jitter clocking featured in the B2 Bomber DAC provides such tight timing, you won't think twice about choosing it as your main clock source.

Killer analog audio quality

Unfortunately, many "professional-quality" digital-to-analog converters fall flat when it comes to their analog signal paths, greatly limiting their effectiveness. But the conversion process itself is only part of what the B2 Bomber DAC brings to your studio. The creative engineers at Burl Audio put the same kind of innovation into the B2 Bomber DAC's analog signal path as they put into its converters. To eliminate noise, the B2 Bomber DAC features a completely capacitor-free signal path, and its discrete Class A op-amps feature passive filtering, ensuring maximum signal fidelity. When you listen to your high-end studio monitors through a B2 Bomber DAC, you'll know exactly what the term "night and day difference" really means.

Drop-dead simple operation

There's no reason a D-to-A converter should take an engineering degree to operate, but for some reason, many popular DACs are a real pain to deal with. Not the B2 Bomber DAC! Burl Audio designed the B2 Bomber DAC to be super-easy to use. Its front-panel layout consists of a mere four knobs, making it as easy as possible to quickly select the settings you need. Instantly switch between between three separate inputs or switch your clock source and sample rate. There's also a brightly lit, easy-to-read 30-segment LED meter on the front of the B2 Bomber DAC, so you can easily keep an eye on your levels.

Master of the masters

My search for top notch conversion is over. My basement studio includes 2 - Avid HD 16×16's modded by Black Lion Audio for my Creation Audio upgraded, Soundcraft 600 Series console. I also have a BLA Sparrow White ADC. All of my converters are mastering grade. Now to the Burl. It blows them all away. Not that my other converters are bad. They're great! I'm keeping mine though I may sell my old Apogee. The Burl B2 has a beautifully thick 3 dimensional sound to it that nothing else can quite approach. It just sounds more real to my ears. Everything benefits. If you record acoustic guitars nothing does it better. It's the most lifelike, even at 96k you can here the difference and as you layer tracks, it's easier to pick out the sounds. If you are spending a small fortune on great mics and preamps give Burl a try. You can't go wrong and I wouldn't be surprised if Burl Audio is the only converters you will ever buy again. PS. If you are in the market to upgrade your outdated studio hardware, look no further than the Burl Mothership.

Big beautiful Burl

I first got into Burl the way I'm guessing most do, with the B2 ADC. I was so impressed by the sonic jump over the Aurora 8 (which I've had for 10 years now) that I wanted to give the B2 DAC a try. Once again I was immediately impressed. After a month or so I had grown accustomed to the sound and was happily working until I needed to send multiple outs for some OTB summing. So I fired up the Aurora and I remembered why I love the Burl so much. It's not that I think the Aurora is bad, mine's not going anywhere, it's just with the Burl you get so much more. The bottom end is the biggest difference, it's unconstrained and beautifully alive, seems to go much much deeper and feel more tangible. The mids and top are not only more open and detailed but also seem smoother, or perhaps a better way to put it is the high-mid frequencies aren't grating on the ears in that subtle way one doesn't notice until you move from the Burl back to the Aurora. That's not to say it's glossing over problems, more it's like an open space where you can clearly see what you need to fix where the Aurora is like looking at it through a window. Like any great piece of gear it's not a magic box, just a great tool that gets out of the way and lets you work (and sounds good while doing so).
