The Burl Audio B16 Mothership is a 2-slot, 2U empty converter chassis. Incorporating technology developed for the company's flagship B80, the B16 Mothership delivers the same legendary sonics in a smaller, more portable chassis. The B16 also accepts any combination of optional I/O cards, and a DigiLink motherboard card is included that provides ample power for the high-headroom, low-noise converters. Burl Audio converters are renowned for their tape-machine-like response to signal level, letting you control your signal's tone through gain staging. Burl digital converters give you a world-class analog front end with amazingly deep and detailed conversion, and the B16 Mothership makes it possible!

A world of options
The B16 Mothership's rugged 2U chassis gives you two card slots, an internal power supply, and a selection of motherboards for DigiLink, MADI, Dante, or SoundGrid connectivity (this is the DigiLink version). Each ADC channel employs a proprietary BX1 transformer; every DAC channel is fitted with Burl Audio's state-of-the-art, discrete op-amp, the BOPA4. If you've been eyeing the B80, but require Mothership conversion in a more compact format, the B16 Mothership is for you. You can set it up as a four-in, eight-out system; or you may need an eight-input system for tracking - or even a portable, 16-output mixing rig. Other options are the BAES4 card with four channels of AES I/O per card and the BCLK card, with eight word clock outputs per card.
Outstanding audio performance
Burl Audio's series of A/D and D/A converters sound strikingly close to an analog tape machine's front end, with the ability to shape your tone based on how hot your signals hit the converters. They sound more like a world-class analog front end than anything on the market, as well as providing digital conversation that's as precise, rich, and detailed as possible. Each A/D converter channel is transformer balanced, and the hotter the signal level the more saturated the signal becomes. You'll find you can shape your sounds the way you used to do with analog equipment, with the benefit of an ultra-precise converter to capture the tone. Take it from AudioBuy - once you hear the analog goodness of Burl's converters, you'll want to run everything through them!
