Big news out of Burl.
MSRP is $2499 for the B26 Orca; $2299 for the B32; $999 for the BCLK. Here’s what Burl had to say about their trio of new releases:
“The B26 Orca is the ultimate in control room monitoring. The B26 utilizes the same discrete analog, class-A circuit path philosophy as prior BURL AUDIO products, with the emphasis on the ultimate in sonic transparency and 3D stereo imaging. The B26 features: direct coupled, discrete, class-A signal path, 3 stereo mix inputs, 2 stereo tape return inputs, RCA stereo input, 2 stereo speaker outputs, audiophile 0.1% matched resistor, stepped attenuator for control room level, independent studio/phones send and level, external meter output, control room and studio headphone outputs.
The B32 Vancouver is a 32-channel mix bus based on BURL AUDIO’s renowned discrete analog, class-A circuitry, employs both the transparency of the B26 ORCA, plus the switchable tonality with the new BURL AUDIO BX5 output transformer. In addition to the BX5, the B32 VANCOUVER introduces a new concept to the summing amplifier, GAIN BOOST. Adding gain boost with the BX5 will give your mixes that glue that you have been seeking ever since retiring your 2-track analog recorder.
BCLK is a word clock distribution card for the Burl Audio B80 Mothership featuring 9 Word Clock Outputs (8 BNC, 1 AES), two independently programmable banks, extremely stable, low jitter clock and up to 92 Word Clock outputs in 1 Mothership!”
