The Revolution is here.
Black Lion Audio has been revered as the “king of audio mods” for years, and have modded countless recording interfaces over the years. Now they look to deliver the ultimate portable audio interface. The Revolution 2×2 aims to revolutionize bus-powered, studio-grade interfaces with its quality engineering and design.
The Revolution 2×2 will sport the sound of large, high-end converters that cost thousands of dollars is now available in a product that can fit in your hand — and not break the bank. Revolution uses our new “Macro-MMC” Clocking technology, which is based on Black Lion’s numerous clocking products and modifications. Macro-MMC’s circuit implementation brings converters to new heights; well beyond what’s been seen in other recording interfaces. Black Lion also aims to assemble its finest A/D//D/A technology, giving you the record-making power you’ve never had before in an interface this small, portable, and affordable.
Top-tier Analog Design
RHi-fi digital design alone isn’t enough to cut it — it takes a serious analog circuit for the very best capture and playback. Revolution 2×2 is built with the most cutting edge, high-end ICs. High-end Vishay, Nichicon, and Wima capacitors are used throughout the entire circuit. All internal gain-staging has been optimized for the very lowest signal-to-noise ratio. All of the analog I/O has not only been built with the finest components but are fully decoupled and balanced — right to the very core of the converter! Most manufacturers do not follow this practice, and that allows extra noise contamination during both capture and playback.
Revolution also employs “PG-i” technology internally, based on Black Lion Audio’s experience in engineering their “best-of-class” power conditioners. All power rails are highly filtered in every active stage across Revolution 2×2 — something that isn’t even found in the most well-respected, high-end equipment. Power is decoupled across the entire circuit: the preamplifiers, the convertors, the internal power, and even the clock. This majorly helps reduce noise contamination from other equipment that is plugged into Revolution 2×2.
