Quick Overview

When it comes to tracking and mixing, it's difficult to make up for the sonic influences of poor A/D/A conversion.

When it comes to tracking and mixing, it's difficult to make up for the sonic influences of poor A/D/A conversion. There's a debate in our industry: which is more important, a good A/D or a good D/A? We're of the opinion that both are equally important. A good D/A can make your source come alive, clarify instrument placement within a mix, and help alleviate the bloated, grainy, and wooly qualities inherent in poor conversion. Whether you're simply listening to program material, working on microphone placement, or mixing a project, a good D/A will help prevent listening fatigue and make your decision making process much easier.

 

Black Lion Audio proudly offers the Sparrow DAC. Designed around the 32-bit capable ESS9018 chip, the Sparrow DAC features wide dynamic range and detailed, musical conversion that’s as functional in the project studio as it is in the mastering facility. The Sparrow DAC features user selectable AES, coax SPDIF, and optical SPDIF for input connectivity. Output connections include both balanced XLR for pro studio, consumer level RCA for home stereo, and a high current headphone output. Two mute buttons allow for independent control of line or headphone signals. Front panel volume control governs the headphone output only, while the line level outputs remain fixed.

The Sparrow DAC features advanced clocking architecture and a stunning 128dB unweighted 20-20kHz dynamic range into 600 ohms. There are few D/A converters that can meet or exceed this kind of dynamic range, or provide you with similar clarity and musicality no matter how much you’re willing to spend! There’s a reason why engineers like Tom Lord-Alge, Tony Maserati, and Mike Shipley use Black Lion Audio converters!
