80-Channel Configurabale AD/DA Interface

The B80 MOTHERSHIP has redefined digital recording. For anyone who has felt that digital recording has been lacking soul, warmth, and musicality, the B80 MOTHERSHIP is the answer. The MOTHERSHIP stands out from every other interface on the market not because it is coloured, but because it does not sterilize the source.

Pushing the boundaries once again, the B80 MOTHERSHIP AD/DA converter has up to 80 analog channel capability. Using a card-based system, and a heavy-duty 4U chassis, the B80 MOTHERSHIP employs 10 card slots with 4 and 8 channel AD/DA cards, all with class-A, discrete electronics without any integrated circuits or capacitors in the signal path. With a completely configurable AD/DA interface, a converter for any situation can be realized.

Powering a unit like the B80 MOTHERSHIP takes some juice - the BP300 was designed to drive the 80 channels of class-A analog circuitry. With a 300-watt continuous power capability, and +/- 24-volt rails, a multi-channel AD/DA converter is finally getting the power it deserves.
