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 very lowest signal-to-noise ratio. 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 start a demo, but actually finish a top-level record from start to finish.

Technical Specs

Mic Input 
Input Impedance = 3KΩ (balanced)
Gain Range = 55dB
Frequency Response = 20Hz – 20KHz +/- 0.25dB
THD + N = .00098% (@12dB Gain)
Dynamic Range =  116dB (A-Weighted)
Crosstalk = < 100dB

Line Input 
Input Impedance = 14KΩ (balanced)
Maximum Input = 20dBu
Gain Range = 55dB
Frequency Response = 20Hz – 20KHz +/- 0.25dB
THD + N = .0022% (Min Gain)
Dynamic Range = 126dB (A-Weighted)

Line Outputs
Output Impedance = 95Ω (balanced)
Max Output Level = 12dBu
Frequency Response = 20Hz – 20KHz +/- 0.25dB
THD+N = .002% (@ +10dBu)
Dynamic Range = 106dB**

Instrument Input 
Input Impedance = 1MΩ (unbalanced)
Gain Range = 55dB
Frequency Response = 20Hz – 20KHz +/- 0.25dB
THD + N = .00114% (@ 0dBu)
Dynamic Range = 103dB (A-Weighted)
Crosstalk = < 100dB

Headphone Outputs
Output Impedance = 2.5Ω
Maximum Signal Output = 9.3dBu
Frequency Response = 20Hz – 20KHz +/- 0.5dB

**Dynamic range is affected by our preference to tuning invidual 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

    Great interface, great mic pres and AMAZING headphone amp!
    I made a video review if someone is interested 🙂

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is my very first black lion product. I knew about them from their mods and how people raved on about the quality. I truthfully did a blind buy just off of reputation alone, and let me tell you, it was money well spent! The converters should not be this good, and whatever voodoo is in this preamp came from a witch doctor lol. Seriously I recorded my first song and my mind exploded with the warmth and clarity that I’ve only heard on gear that costs the price of a car. Do yourself a favor, get it! Like now!
