Black Lion Audio Red Sparrow DAC - 2-Channel Converter
The Black Lion Audio Red Sparrow DAC is a 2-channel digital to analogue converter that offers similar performance to the Black Lion Audio FM192 converter’s D/A, although it features wider dynamic range than the FM192.
Designed around the 32-bit capable ESS9018 chip, the Black Lion Audio Red 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.
