Black Lion Audio Micro Clock MK2 – No Longer Available

Compact, high-quality, low-jitter external word clock
MFR# MICROCLOCKMK2

Product Description

The Black Lion Micro Clock mk2 is a radical departure in design from its predecessor.  It features ultra-low jitter third order crystal oscillators with a revolutionary patent-pending high current parallel drive circuit designed to increase the amount of desirable harmonics within the clock's spectral band.  In addition to this, its 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 cancellation within the converted audio signal.

Specifications

  • Output: 3 galvanic-isolated BNC with fixed 75 ohm terminations @ 6 volts peak to peak
  • Power: 9-12 volts DC
  • Sampling rates: six selectable rates, 44.1 kHz-192 kHz
  • Jitter: maximum 1 pico second of intrinsic jitter, less than 10 picoseconds of accumulated jitter measured using a delta sigma averaging method.

The Micro Clock mk2 is simple and probably even boring looking by most standards.  It's housed in a rugged yet basic 3x4" chassis that provides optimum RF shielding. It has no lights, no frequency display, and none of the usual visual candy that your friends might envy, but that's because those items create unwanted noise that affect the signal.

The power supply is 12 volts DC using a wall wart that's capable of accepting both 120 and 240 volts AC.  It features six selectable output frequencies from 44.1 kHz on up to 192 kHz.  Output level is approximately 4 volts peak to peak.  Jitter at the crystal oscillator is approximately 1 picosecond RMS, and it's just under 10 picoseconds RMS at the output. Both of these figures are obtained using a Delta Sigma averaging method.  The Micro Clock mk2 is compatible with all modern digital devices that have 75 ohm BNC word clock input.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
