Review: Burl Audio B1D 500 series preamp
Positives:Big thick sound. great DI. Build quality is very heavy and solid.
Negatives:no meters or lights for switches
These are the Burl Audio versions with the iron output transformer. I believe the D stands for dark but dont quote me on that. I have plenty other high end pres and I am not overly concerned with the differences between them. The differences are always much more subtle than people make them out to be. With that being said, these Burl pres are noticeably different than my other pres. They definitely are darker with more low end. Bass guitars, kick drum def. go there. Guitars and snares will go there when I want a little more low meat than the api’s. Burl is an awesome company with great products and customer service.
