We are Black Lion Audio.
Established 2006 in Chicago, IL.

Who We Are

Chicago has a rich cultural heritage based on a strong work ethic and a no-nonsense approach towards life. We at Black Lion Audio feel that this is reflected in our dedication and approach to sound quality. We work extremely hard on every aspect of our designs, modifications, and customer service, and make every effort to be efficient and timely in doing so.

We started Black Lion Audio to help people involved in audio reproduction and reinforcement upgrade the sound quality of their equipment without spending a lot of money. Our focus began primarily with modifications, then broadened to include our own boutique equipment designed and built right here in Chicago. It is our vision to create an excellent product (both in design and performance) and deliver it to you at an exceptional price.

Why Order From Us?

Over the years, we’ve built a reputation for providing our customers with the sort of sound quality normally found in equipment that costs substantially more than what we charge. Our work has been used for projects on major record labels and countless independent ones. It’s been used on TV shows and commercials. It’s been used by major audio software companies to record sample libraries and provide customer demonstrations. We’ve done work for Grammy and Academy Award winning engineers, and for major studios in LA, NY and Nashville.

You can hear our work in major motion picture scores and soundtracks such as “Shutter Island,” on major television shows like ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars’, as well as on commercials for Fox and Chevrolet. BLA’s work is also utilized by prestigious organizations such as The Los Angeles Opera, major label acts like Maroon 5, Alison Krauss, Metallica, T-Pain, George Strait, MGMT, Beyonce, George Duke, Slayer, Erykah Badu, Rod Stewart, and The Donnas, as well as by independent artists like J Mascis, Sereena Maneesh, mewithoutYou, and many others.
