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!
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.

Yeah, it's a little weird. I think they are treating mono and stereo inputs equally in the 32 count: 24 + 8 = 32. Maybe it's a typo and actually 12 stereo inputs. My money is on the former, though I might be completely wrong.
Edit: I'd think each stereo input would be a hard left / hard right assigned pair. Maybe there will be a companion panner with L-C-R or continuous panning: Companner? That would knock it back to 32 mono inputs, with 24 that can be centered or panned.

I think you were right when you said typo. 12 stereo inputs + 8 mono is what I'm betting on.
Just checked the site and just noted "24 Stereo Inputs". Which if thats the case then yea that would make 48 + the 8 mono but then why would it be called the B"32" lol. Kinda was set on going SSL Alpha but with Portico Summing but maybe wait a month or so and go with Antelope + B32. Cant wait to hear the Burl man
I'm really stoked about this release, but I'm a little confused as well. Is the orca release and Vancouver for that matter each a stand alone unit or is it a part of the mothership system?
I know the original mothership was slated to have both summing and control room monitor.
So, is there any chance that the control room monitor includes a modular piece of the mothership that perhaps includes all the necessary d/a conversion for the unit? Or would you have to have external conversion?
Same would go for summing.????
I thought burl was goin to release a summing unit that would tie all d/a conversion in the mothership? Maybe this is related or maybe not?
I don't mean to create more confusion if it's just that im the only one confused.....maybe I missed something?
Also on the orca? Is the l/r buttons a solo or mute? Is there a sum to mono option?
