- Lynx Aurora (n) 16 HD 16-channel 24-bit/192kHz A/D D/A Converter
As we continue to bring nothing but the best Pro Audio brands to NZ we are excited to announce we are now the official NZ distributor for Lynx Studio Technology! Lynx have been world leaders in conversion solutions for a long time and with the announcement on the Aurora (n) we are extremely proud to be able to offer Lynx products officially in NZ.
Aurora (n) Overview
The U.S. made Lynx Studio Technology Aurora(n) line represents a quantum leap in the performance, flexibility, channel count and features of available A/D and D/A converters — and in value. The new 1RU modular platform, a complete redesign of the original Aurora, is available in versions supporting from 8 to 32 inputs, and with USB, Pro Tools|HD and HDX, Thunderbolt and Dante connectivity options.
Lynx has designed its new 192 kHz/24-bit Aurora(n) converters to be future-proof. Digital audio gear can be a significant investment for any owner, but with Aurora(n) you aren’t locked into a fixed configuration. The combination of FPGA chip technology, modular design and Lynx’s new L-Slot expansion cards allow you to stay current with firmware updates and to reconfigure your system as your needs evolve, maximizing your return on investment.
But above all, there’s the performance. Borrowing Hilo Converter Technology (HTC) from the company’s mastering-quality, reference grade Hilo converter unit and combining it with FPGA circuitry, Lynx has achieved major improvements in transparency, imaging and detail. Every channel’s analog signal path is self-contained and shielded, and each channel pair has its own dedicated conversion device, significantly reducing crosstalk and distortion while increasing dynamic range and performance, with no coloration or artifacts. Lynx’s all-new SynchroLock-2 second-generation sample clock technology ensures absolute accuracy with minimal jitter.
To match the performance of these new converters, Lynx has also incorporated two audiophile-quality headphone outputs, each with independent level controls. Uniquely, all Aurora(n) units include an onboard Micro SD player/recorder that provides up to 32 channels of direct recording and playback. The front panel TFT LCD displays levels and functions, and supports future upgrades.
Lynx Aurora (n) 16-HD (Pro Tools)
Next-Gen Lynx Conversion Plus Thunderbolt
The Lynx Aurora (n) 16-HD with preinstalled LT-HD option provides you with pro-quality digital conversion and ultra-low-latency performance. The Aurora (n) 16-HD gives you up to 192kHz analog to digital and digital to analog conversion with front panel control of all routing and sample rate options. Word clock connectors provide you with additional sync options, and the preinstalled LT-HD card provides you with maximum bandwidth and minimal latency. Aurora (n) models give you up to 32-channel recording and playback to microSD for stand-alone operation or confidence recording, as well as two audiophile-grade headphone outs, while a TFT LCD display provides immediate status information. Leveraging high-end Lynx Hilo technology and utilizing cutting-edge FPGA processors, Aurora (n) delivers even greater transparency, with significantly lower noise and distortion than previous models. For excellent conversion quality,
Convenient front-panel control and the I/O options you need
In addition to an ergonomic front panel that provides easy access to all of its important controls and signal status, the Aurora (n) 16-HD offers professional I/O options to fit your studio or live-sound production rig. Based on handy DB-25 connections, the Aurora's analog I/O is electronically balanced and supports both +4dBU and -10dBV nominal levels, while its preinstalled LT-HD card provides you with maximum bandwidth and minimal latency.
Onboard mixer makes complex routing simple
The Aurora (n) 16-HD's 16-channel onboard digital mixer provides you with extensive routing and mixing options. Acting as a powerful patch-bay-style digital router, your Aurora (n) 16-HD can easily route signals between its analog and digital inputs on a channel-by-channel basis. That provides you with extremely flexible, and totally recallable, zero-latency monitoring capabilities.
