Recognizing the need of a high end analog to digital converter (ADC) in an affordable package, Black Lion has developed their flagship ADC, the Audio Sparrow Mk2 White . What sets the Mk2 White apart is the implementation of dual converters in a parallel balanced circuit, the 220/270SP master clock, analog circuitry staging, advanced PLL recovery, and the latest in power filtration technology. The 220/270SP master clock, which can also be found in Black Lion's top of the line FM192 modification, has been used by talent such as Mike Shiply, Tony Maserati, and Mutt Lange. The Audio Sparrow Mk2 White can accommodate signal levels from +11 to -10dBv, sampling rates from 44.1 - 192kHz, and has a host of quality inputs and outputs to keep the signal path flexible and clean. A modular design allows the circuitry to be replaced as new technologies are released in the future, making the Mk2 White even more appealing to those looking for long term value in their investment. The overall result of these features is an affordable yet extremely musical 2-channel ADC which yields the fattest and richest results available on the market for a fraction of the cost.

2 converters in parallel balanced circuit
The Mk2 White utilizes 2 converters for stereo conversion in a parallel-balanced circuit to increase the dynamic range. The results yield a rich, fat, yet clear sounding conversion which makes it one of the best sounding A/D converters available today.
Modular Design
The Mk2 White's design is completely modular, allowing circuitry to be updated as needed. This allows the Mk2 White to stay up to date with the latest technology, adding even more long-term value in this investment.
Musical Sonic Qualities
The Mk2 White's dual converter design, pinpoint imaging, and wide open sonic quality results in an ADC which is extremely musical and leaves other ADCs sounding lifeless.
User Selectable Signal Calibration and Sampling Rates
The Mk2 White can accommodate input signal levels from +11dBu down to -10dBV and sampling rates from 44.1-192kHz.
Flexible Set of Inputs and Outputs
AES Output, coax and optical SPDIF, XLR and 1/4" balanced inputs all contribute to a flexible set of inputs and outputs for almost any environment.
LED Metering
A set of LEDs give a visual representation of the audio signal behavior for each channel. LEDs are lit for clipping on each channel, word clock lock, and power.
Ultra Low Noise Signal Path
A proprietary set of low ripple converter circuitry, a high headroom analog stage, and an organic semiconductor capacitance in the power supply all contribute to a low noise signal path usually found in more expensive units.
Compact Design
The entire Mk2 White package fits in just a 1U - 1/2 rack space, making it easy to blend into your studio setup.
Precision Clocking Architecture
Capable of sampling rates from 44.1-192kHz, the Mk2 White's 220/270Sp master clock features low jitter, wide Q third harmonic crystal oscillators, and a clock multiplier which prevents performance degradation should the converter by synchronized to a lower word clock reference.
Sonic Qualities of Units Twice the Price
The technology and design used in the Mk2 White results in pinpoint imaging, wide open sonic quality, and a rich midrange found in systems at more than twice the price. The Mk2 will forever change your standards for excellence in ADCs for years to come.
