Black Lion Audio Micro Clock MK3

The Black Lion Audio Micro Clock MkIII is the culmination of almost 10 years of research involving jitter-reducing, harmonic-enhancing design techniques not found in any other master word clocks on the market.

The Black Lion Audio Micro Clock MkIII is a significant redesign of its predecessor, the Micro Clock MkII. Core technological improvements include lower-jitter crystal oscillators, higher-quality galvanic transformer isolation in the signal path, dedicated output drivers with better isolation, higher-precision signal division, and much heavier noise filtration throughout the circuit. All of this results in a more robust, lower-jitter clock signal than the Micro Clock MkII, with even more desirable harmonics in the clock's spectral band that impart an undeniable musical quality to the conversion process. The feature set has expanded to include an LED frequency display, six BNC outputs capable of up to 384kHz, and AES, optical, and S/PDIF outputs capable of up to 192kHz.

It will significantly improve the sound quality of any digital audio gear capable of syncing to an external word clock, whether it be standalone ADCs or DACs, digital FX units, audio interfaces, or digital mixing consoles. It may be the most significant single upgrade anyone can make to an entire digital audio system. Get ready to hear what you've been missing!
