Dale Welcomes Black Lion Audio, Just In Time for Savings!

Black Lion Audio LogoBlack Lion Audio was created in Chicago to help people involved in audio reproduction and reinforcement upgrade the sound quality of their equipment without spending a lot of money. The focus began primarily with modifications, then broadened to include their own boutique equipment designed and built right in Chicago. Their vision is to create an excellent product (both in design and performance) and deliver it to you at an exceptional price. And Black Lion Audio has arrived just in time to offer some end-of-year instant rebates on their top selling products!

Micro Clock Mk2The Micro Clock mk2 (Reg $599, now $499) is a completely revolutionary design in external clocking. It features ultra-low jitter, third order crystal oscillators with a high current parallel drive circuit designed to increase the amount of desirable harmonics within the clock’s spectral band. In addition to this, proprietary noise reduction circuitry dramatically eliminates the unwanted switching harmonics normally found in digital signals. These are musically unrelated signals that create distortion and phase cancellations within the converted audio signal. Because of these technological advances, the Micro Clock mk2 is one of the best performing external word clocks within the pro audio market today.

Auteur TwinWhat makes the Auteur Twin (Reg $599, now $499) so special? For one, its design offers a unique approach. Being admirers of the fully balanced, transformerless circuits found in highly acclaimed recording consoles, Black Lion chose to use a similar topology. They began with a high speed input stage that picks up lots of detail and nuance, and then followed it with a high current output stage. A 600 ohm, M-6 silicon steel output transformer gives the audio a thick quality that’s reminiscent of a prized vintage preamp.

Neumann's All New TLM 107 Condenser Microphone

Neumann LogoComing in January 2014! Classic proportions combined with attractive styling and fresh ideas – the TLM 107($1699.95 for either Nickel or Black) perfectly embodies the Neumann philosophy: Innovation based on tradition. Far from evoking vintage or retro nostalgia, the standard-setting TLM 107 represents an impressive, modern studio microphone. Its extensive performance spectrum and high-precision reproduction, very close to the original, make the TLM 107 universally applicable, opening up the widest freedom in mixing and post-production.

TLM 107The newly developed sound transducer, which was designed especially for this microphone, is impressive due to its outstanding impulse fidelity. The consistency of the five polar patterns, omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8, with the intermediate patterns wide-angle cardioid and hypercardioid, is also unusual for a large-diaphragm capsule. The TLM 107 provides optimal sound not only for the cardioid setting; it also ensures maximum precision over the entire frequency range for all of the other directional characteristics. The sound always remains balanced, with an almost linear reproduction up to 8 kHz, and a slight boost in the highest frequencies that lends presence and freshness to the voice.

TLM 107For the first time, all of the microphone switch functions are controlled intuitively via a navigation switch. A visual highlight is the illuminated pattern display in the chrome ring, while the Pad and Low Cut status is displayed by LEDs to the left and right of the switch. In order not to distract singers, the switch and display are located on the back of the microphone. After ten seconds, the displays turn off automatically.

Special Offer from Kush Audio on Clariphonic

Kush LogoKush Audio is offering a special price reduction on their Clariphonic parallel equalizer until December 31 - normally $1599, it is now $1299! Drums, vocals, acoustic guitars, entire mixes... almost any sound can be made more present, more detailed, and more alive with this remarkably creative, forward-thinking EQ.

ClariphonicWith two high-shelves running in parallel on each channel, and your choice of 6 unusual and carefully selected corner frequencies covering everything from the mids to the supersonics, there is no limit to the types of sweet high end the Clariphonic can produce. The internal parallel signal paths produce a form of additive-only high frequency equalization that is at once holographic, transparent, and virtually phaseless. You get effortless, natural high end for days.
