Black Lion Audio have been revered as the “king of audio mods” for years, and have modded countless recording interfaces over the years. But since the very beginning, we’ve been asked when we would create our own interface. So, we planned, engineered, and worked — all in secret, for years. It took an impressive amount of design to revolutionize bus-powered, studio-grade interfaces.
Now we are responding with Revolution 2×2: the ultimate in portable recording interfaces.
Revolution isn’t another run-of-the-mill interface from big brother — it’s the interface the world has always asked for. Don’t just settle for “the cheap and portable” – get an interface that can do more than just start a demo, but actually finish a top-level record from start to finish.
The most revolutionary thing to note about Revolution 2×2 is it’s sound quality: 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 off of our 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.
We also assembled our 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.
Revolution also employs “PG-i” technology internally, based off of 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.
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 convertor! Most manufacturers do not follow this practice, and that allows extra noise contamination during both capture and playback.
