Black Lion PG 2 400pxBlack Lion Audio PG 2Black Lion Audio announces availability of PG-2, a full-featured peak performance power conditioner with a 120V Power Grid of 14 outlets. Thanks to proprietary PG-99 Filtering Technology, the PG02 provides an average of 99.7% noise filtering alongside a suite of status and alert capabilities all housed in an attractive yet robust 2U rack-mountable chassis.

Anyone actively involved in professional music-making — onstage or otherwise — knows that it takes more than a few rack-mounted power outlets to inspire true confidence in a power conditioner. Clearly, acquiring a must-have piece of gear only to find it noisier than expected or missing high-frequency detail — or, worse still, having it fried by an unwanted power surge — are all far from ideal scenarios! Such sorry setbacks need not happen, however; Black Lion Audio is here to help, having long since been trusted to modify the best gear and make it even better, which is what it took to create the PG-2 — taking industry-standard designs, and improving them to the point of peak performance.

Power conditioning comes naturally to Black Lion Audio. After creating its original PG-1 POWER GRID 1 as a confidence-inspiring, rack-mountable power conditioner — also available as the PG-1 TYPE F variant with a 230V Power Grid of 10 Europlug-compatible outlets — premiering PG-99 Filtering Technology to improve upon the typical average of 85% found in other power conditioners at the same price point, PG-2 takes things to a higher level as a full-featured peak performance power conditioner.

By being built using premium Panasonic and Wimi capacitors, chosen for their superior execution in eliminating high frequency noise that robs equipment of its peak performance, PG-2 provides an average of 99.7% of noise filtering, thanks to PG-99 Filtering Technology. But better still, combining that superior filtration with an impressive power absorption rating of 2,775 joules means that any connected gear — must-have or otherwise — is not only on the receiving end of quality power but protected from any unsafe scenarios, should they unfortunately happen. Having said that, then, PG-2 features a bank of 12 switched, filtered, and surge-protected outlets on its back panel arranged as three groups — DIGITAL AUDIO OUTLETS (x4), ANALOG AUDIO OUTLETS (x4), and HIGH CURRENT OUTLETS (x4). Fortunately for that connected gear, the time-delayed ANALOG AUDIO OUTLETS and HIGH CURRENT OUTLETS always ensure that speakers and power amplifiers are the last to turn on and the first to turn off, thereby preventing the dreaded ‘pop’ that can occur if speakers receive power at the same time as sound sources.

An attractive front panel provides two filtered UNSWITCHED OUTLETS for convenience alongside a (5V 1A) USB CHARGER connection and an all-important suite of status and alert capabilities, courtesy of VOLTAGE MONITOR and AMPERAGE MONITOR metering for real-time analysis, as well as Ground OK, Wiring Fault, Clean Power On, Abnormal Voltage, and Protection On LED (Light Emitting Diode) status. An audio alarm also helps highlight Abnormal Voltage, upping the ante when it comes to providing protection for gear connected to the PG-2 peak performance power conditioner, while front- and back panel-positioned XLR lamp connectors clearly assist in helping shed light on the situation. Ultimately, users can rest easy knowing that the safety of their gear is at the considered core of Black Lion Audio’s latest design.

PG-2 is available to purchase through Black Lion Audio’s growing global network of dealers/distributors with a MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) of $399.00 USD and an SSP (Suggested Selling Price) of €399.00 EUR (excluding VAT).
