Up for consideration is a near -mint Audient Black ACD converter for the portable BB4 rack enclosure or the 10-space BR-10 rack for the Audient Black Series. This rack system is slightly larger than the API 500-Series, and sports more features and also it is one of the only systems to include an ADC converter. New, these Audient Black ADC converters sell for $440, but here you can get one in near-mint condition and save $140!!!

"The ADC module provides extremely high-quality stereo A-D conversion and is built around the class-leading AKM 24-bit, 192kHz chip.
The A-D converter performed extremely well, and I preferred it in a straight A/B comparison with my now ageing Apogee PSX100. The top end was slightly smoother and more refined, and the stereo imaging seemed even more crystal-clear and solid — which is a sure sign of very low jitter."

Sound on Sound
Here are some of my sound files of the BB4 equipped with an Audient Black Preamp -- just to show you the sound of the Black Series preamp, using a Blackspade Acoustics UM17 tube mic, and recorded into a Sony PCM D1 flash recorder, with no EQ or Compression:

The beauty of the Audient Black system is you can get a clean sound OR a character piece out of the same unit. The larger module size allows for these extra features that you won't find on 500-series modules: HMX, Glow, Smooth, Overcomp, Tilt, etc. Then it is about the only system with an ADC, allowing for mobile recording on the go, and the 500--series adapter lets you take your favorite 500-series flavor with you as well. To top it off, the $440 street price of these Audient Black modules is about as low as you will find for a high-quality, professional module. The Audient Black series has recently been discontinued, so the time to stock up on these babies is now!!!
