Revolution 2×2



USB 2 Channel Portable Recording Interface – Modded Out Of The Box!
Revolution 2×2 is built with the most cutting edge, high-end ICs. High-end Vishay, Nichicon, and Wima capacitors are used throughout the entire circuit. All internal gain-staging has been optimized for the lowest noise floor. All of the analog I/O has not only been built with the finest components, but are fully decoupled and balanced — right to the very core of the convertor! Most manufacturers do not follow this practice, and that allows extra noise contamination during both capture and playback.

Revolution 2×2 – USB 2-Channel Portable Recording Interface – Modded Out Of The Box!

Black Lion Audio have been revered as the “king of audio mods” for years, and have modded countless recording interfaces over the years. But since the very beginning, we’ve been asked when we would create our own interface. So, we planned, engineered, and worked — all in secret, for years. It took an impressive amount of design to revolutionize bus-powered, studio-grade interfaces.

Now we are responding with Revolution 2×2: the ultimate in portable recording interfaces. Revolution isn’t another run-of-the-mill interface from big brother — it’s the interface the world has always asked for. Don’t just settle for the cheap and portable. Get an interface that can do more than just sketch out a demo… get one that can actually track a top-level record from start to finish.

Technical Specs

Mic Input 

Input Impedance = 3.5k Ω
Maximum input level @ gain min = +8.615 dBu
Maximum input level @ gain max = -47.182 dBu
Frequency Response:  frequency response 20 hz to 20 kHz @gain min (input level -1 dBFS) =  +/-0.035 dB
Frequency Response:  frequency response 20 hz to 20 kHz @gain max (input level -1 dBFS) =  +/-0.803 dB
THD + N @ 1 kHz @gain min (bandwidth 20 hz-20 kHz, un-weighted,  (input level -1 dBFS) = 0.00098%
SNR @ 1 kHz @gain min (bandwidth 20 hz-20 kHz, A-weighted, (input level 0 dBFS ) = 108.838 dB
Dynamic Range  @gain min(bandwidth 20 hz-20 kHz, A-weighted -level 0 dBFS) = 109.197dB
Crosstalk = -92.157 dB 

Line Input

Input Impedance = 10k Ω
Maximum Input (maximum input level @ gain min) = +19.82 7Bu
Maximum input level @ gain max = -35.91 Bu
Gain Range = 55.7
Frequency Response =  +/-0.036 dB
THD + N = 0.00094%

Crosstalk = -92.229 dB 

Line Outputs

Output Impedance = 47 Ω
Max Output Level = +12.224 dBu
Frequency Response =  +/-0.089 dBu
THD+N = 0.00165%
Dynamic Range = 101.457 dB 

Instrument Input
Input Impedance = 1 MΩ
Gain Range = 55.7
Frequency Response =  +/-0.024 dB
THD + N = 0.00481%
Dynamic Range = 105.338 dB
Crosstalk = -94.338 dB 

Headphone Outputs
Output Impedance = 10 Ω
Maximum Signal Output = 2.252 Vrms
Frequency Response =  +/-0.114 dB  

**Dynamic range is affected by our preference to tuning individual stages for tonality. We found that the best sounding parts in the output path weren’t necessarily the lowest noise components but they resulted in an optimal tone and signal purity that is instantly apparent to the listener. Electronic design is a game of compromise and we’re confident your ears will agree with our choices.

Audio Files

Test method: Source files were fed from each unit’s analog outputs 1/2 and recorded back in using the same unit’s analog inputs 1/2. This captures both the D/A and A/D characteristics of each interface. Careful attention was paid to level match files as close as possible. Three products were used on all songs below in this test method (Competitor A, Competitor B and Revolution 2×2).

“Gone Fishin'” by Mojo Mark C
“It’s A New Day Special” by The Jeffreys
“Love Me Baby” by Mary Lane
“Stain” by LoneWolf Featuring Chin Chilla Meek
“Through Heaven’s Eyes” by DEC3
