The Aurora 16-VTTB from Lynx Studio is a professional 16 channel AD/DA converter that supports up to 24-bit / 192 kHz conversion. It also features analog input and output trim control and comes with the LT-TB Thunderbolt interface card pre-installed. It is designed to accommodate a multitude of professional recording studio and live sound applications.

The Aurora 16-VTTB provides 16 channels of analog I/O and 16 channels of digital AES/EBU I/O and can be mounted using a single rack space. It is equipped with six DB-25 connectors: two for analog inputs 1-16, two for analog outputs 1-16 and two for digital AES/EBU inputs 1-16 and outputs 1-16. 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. Also, the unit's analog input and output levels can be set between +8.5 dBu and +24 dBu for further flexibilty.

Additionally, the Aurora 16-VTTB features BNC word clock input and output for slaving to an external digital clock source, or for using the Aurora 16-VTTB as the master clock. It also has a 32 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.

Features:

•Analog input and output levels can be set between +8.5 dBu and +24 dBu

•LT-TB Thunderbolt card installed allows for daisy-chaining and direct connection to Mac or PC

•Simultaneous 16 channel analog I/O and 16 channel AES/EBU I/O
