CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA: boutique audio company Black Lion Audio is proud to present its PG-2R 120V Regulating Power Grid as a studio-grade regulator/power conditioner with surge protection — duly designed to maintain a steady voltage of 120V within a tight ± 2V tolerance to ensure that no voltage fluctuations from the power source get through to treasured studio hardware connected to its back- panel-positioned banks of 12 switched, filtered, and surge-protected outlets, meaning that hardware will be consistently and safely running on the voltage it was intended to use, thereby enhancing reliability and prolonging lifespan as a direct result — as of April 18…

Everyone’s equipment deserves the best power possible; with that very thought in mind, Black Lion Audio took great care in ensuring that the PG-2R 120V Regulating Power Grid does just that — thanks to its PG-99 FILTERING Noise Filtering Technology that, in testing, has provided up to 99.7% noise filtering, as opposed to the typical average of 85% found in other power conditioners at the same price point. Put it this way: the PG-2R encourages eliminating high frequency noise that robs equipment of its peak performance by being built using premium Panasonic and Wima capacitors. Combine that superior power with an impressive power absorption rating of 2,775 joules and any connected equipment is not just getting quality power but also protected from far from ideal scenarios, such as acquiring a must-have piece of gear only to find it noisier than expected or missing high-frequency details — or, worse still, having that gear fried by an unwanted power surge!

No need to worry, though, since the PG-2R’s back-panel-positioned banks of 12 switched and filtered outlets are all surge-protected. All are divided into three groups, labelled as DIGITAL AUDIO OUTLETS, ANALOG AUDIO OUTLETS, and HIGH CURRENT OUTLETS — the latter two categories being time delayed to always ensure that any connected speakers and power amplifiers are last to turn on and first to turn off, thereby preventing the dreaded ‘pop’ that can occur if speakers receive power at the same time as any connected sound sources.

Saying that, the PG-2R’s feature-packed front panel includes two conveniently-positioned unfiltered UNSWITCHED OUTLETS alongside two USB chargers — USB CHARGER (that can charge most laptops) and USB CHARGER 5V 1A, as well as a handy XLR lamp connector — LAMP 12V, 3W — and associated DIMMER control knob. (Needless to say, there is also a rear-panel-positioned REAR LAMP XLR connector and associated DIMMER control, so seeing those back-panel-positioned outlets in far-from-ideally-lit lighting conditions need not prove problematic.)

Power conditioner confidence takes so much more than a few rack-mounted outlets — certainly as far as the truly discerning user is concerned. Clearly, however, here is where the PG-2R really delivers: thanks to the inclusion of a suite of alert and status capabilities — comprising INPUT VOLTAGE MONITOR, VOLTAGE REGULATION STAGE, and AMPERAGE MONITOR for real-time analysis, as well as LED (Light Emitting Diode) indicators for Ground OK, Wiring Fault, Clean Power On, Abnormal Voltage, Protection On, and Regulation On status, plus an audio alarm for unsafe voltage, such users can count on the PG-2R 120V Regulating Power Grid having their treasured studio hardware’s safety at the considered core of its heavy-duty design — even in worst-case power scenarios!

The PG-2R is available to purchase in territories that use 120V power through Black Lion Audio’s growing global network of dealers/distributors (https://www.blacklionaudio.com/dealers) with a MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) of $1,199.00 USD.
