New modular multichannel converters soar at Hyde Street Studios
Santa Cruz, CA, February 27, 2011—Burl Audio is proud to announce that the first project through its much-anticipated B80 Mothership was a recent Jimi Hendrix mix done at Hyde Street's Studio A in San Francisco, CA. Spearheaded by the Hendrix family, John McDermott, and Eddie Kramer, a reissue of a yet-to-be-disclosed famous Hendrix recording was transferred from original 1" 8-track tape into 8 channels of Mothership BAD4 A/D converters, and then mixed out through 16 channels of the Mothership's BDA8 DAC. Complimenting the Mothership was Hyde Street’s custom-modified, Class-A discrete Neve 8048.
Stay tuned for this electrifying release as it is not only a monumental performance, but also greatly exemplifies the vast "musical" improvement of the B80 Mothership over existing AD/DA designs. Jimi Hendrix's music has been a huge influence on the people of Burl Audio, so this is quite an honor.
