Lynx Studio Technology Aurora 8 overview

  • 1Description

The Aurora 8TB from Lynx Studio is a professional 8-channel AD/DA converter that supports up to 24-bit / 192 kHz conversion. It is designed to accommodate a multitude of professional recording studio and live sound applications.

The Aurora 8TB provides 8 channels of analog I/O and 8 channels of digital AES/EBU I/O and can be mounted using a single rack space. It is equipped with three DB-25 connectors: one for analog inputs 1-8, one for analog outputs 1-8 and one for digital AES/EBU inputs 1-8 and outputs 1-8. It can be digitally connected via AES/EBU to your existing interface for adding additional I/O to your studio or live rig, and it can be connected to an analog patchbay via the analog DB-25 ports for routing to and from outboard analog equipment.

Additionally, the Aurora 8TB features BNC word clock input and output for slaving to an external digital clock source, or for using the Aurora 8TB as the master clock. It also has a 16 channel digital mixer for flexible routing, MIDI I/O plus an LSlot expansion bay that comes with the LT-TB Thunderbolt card installed from the factory. The LT-TB allows you to daisy-chain up to six Aurora converters on a single Thunderbolt port on Mac or PC. Additional interface cards for Pro Tools HD, USB 2.0, MADI and ADAT protocols are available.
