The Sparrow mk2 BLACK

Designed to perform in the range of $2,000+ two-channel A/D converters, the Sparrow mk2 BLACK is described as more advanced than its predecessor, (the original BLA Sparrow ADC, now discontinued). The clocking circuitry features “low-jitter, wide Q third harmonic crystal oscillators with PLL recovery, ” the company says. The Sparrow mk2 BLACK (with the black faceplate) is said to be comparable to the conversion quality and sonic characteristics of the Digi 002R/003R Signature Series modification.

It is priced at $895.

 

The Sparrow mk2 RED

The Sparrow mk2 RED (red faceplate) is also a two-channel ADC but is more comparable to the FM192 modification. With a different design and components than the Black Sparrow, it is priced at $1295. It features a “low-noise, low-ripple converter circuit design and the same novel 220/270SP master clock, ” according to BL. It is designed to use for mastering, two-track classical or jazz recordings, final mixes, and other studio applications.

It is priced at $1295.

 

The Sparrow mk2 WHITE

The White version of the Sparrow mk2 (white faceplate) represents a portion of Black Lion’s research into delta sigma conversion and clocking architecture. What sets it apart from the rest of the pack is that it employs two converters in a parallel-balanced circuit to boost converter dynamic range. Black Lion adds to this “220/270SP master clock with wide Q third harmonic crystal oscillators, PLL recovery, and a low noise analog path.” The Sparrow mk2 WHITE is said to outperform the FM192.

It is priced at $1895.
