Product Highlights
  • PCIe Card
  • 16 Channels of AES/EBU I/O
  • 24-Bit/192kHz
  • Multi-Channel Support
  • Mac OS X
  • Windows XP/Vista/7

The AES16e from Lynx Studio Technology is a PCI Express card that provides up to sixteen channels of AES/EBU input and output to and from a computer. The card helps integrate digital consoles, multi-channel A/D and D/A converters and hard disk recorders with computer-based workstations.

The AES16e supports the single-wire, 192kHz standard and is compatible with existing dual-wire AES/EBU devices. Up to four cards can be installed into a single computer and with the included digital software mixer, the AES16 can turn a computer into a powerful digital router or patchbay with extensive flexibility and minimal cabling.

Offering a solution for jitter problems in AES signals, the card incorporates SynchroLock technology that provides extreme jitter tolerance at all inputs. By coupling statistical analysis with low-noise clock generation techniques, SynchroLock is able to extract a very clean clock from AES signals affected by long cable lengths and other noise sources.

Note! Requires two CBL-AES1604 cables (not included) for full sixteen channel operation

      Comments about Lynx Studio Technology AES16e - PCI Express AES/EBU Interface:

      some of these aes16e include the required cables; this does not.

      I needed two 1604 cables which cost quite a lot. they each have db 26----> 8xAES with one coaxial for WC. one port has WC in the other port has WC out.

      you get a total of 16ch in/out plus wordclock i/o. very high bandwidth superior to firewire.

      I am interfacing with AD converter that has 16 out via db25----->8x AES/EBU so I had to get a custom AES cable so I could use 4 AES into each port bottom line, try to find one that says cables included! singlewide card is nice an compact compared to another brand i was looking at.
