Black Lion Audio Sparrow White AD Converter Description

The Sparrow mk2 ADC is available in three different versions.

The Sparrow mk2 WHITE

Okay, sometimes it's fun to show what your design team is capable of creating. The White version of the Sparrow mk2 (white faceplate) represents a portion of our research into delta sigma conversion and clocking architecture. What sets it apart from the rest of the pack? For one thing, instead of using one converter for stereo conversion, it employs TWO converters in a parallel-balanced circuit to drastically boost converter dynamic range. Add to this our unique approach to converter configuration, our 220/270SP master clock with wide Q third harmonic crystal oscillators, advanced PLL recovery, and a low noise analog path, and all of these elements together will yield the richest, clearest and fattest sounding A/D converter to ever have set foot in your recording studio. The Sparrow mk2 WHITE outperforms the FM192, making it among the best two-channel A/D converters available in the pro audio market today, period.
