The Lynx Aurora 16 LT-HD 115 Volt AD/DA Converter is an analog to digital/digital to analog converter that operates on 115 volts and is compatible with Pro Tools HD recording systems. It features one primary and one expansion DigiLink port which allows for connection to a Pro Tools HD or Accel Core, HDX or Native card via a DigiLink cable. The Aurora 16 LT-HD emulates HD input and output, or I/O delay, and requires no manual delay adjustments for sample accuracy.

A single Aurora LT-HD unit provides up to 32-channels of both analog and digital I/O per HD card and supports the full channel count in up to 24-bit, 192kHz sampling. It has two modes of operation, 32-channel and 16-channel. In 32-channel operation, the unit allows access to its 16 analog and 16 digital I/O channels simultaneously. The default mode of the Aurora 16 LT-HD is its 16-channel mode, which allows you to connect a second Aurora 16 LT-HD to the same HD card for a higher analog track count. For a track count higher than 32-channels, additional Pro Tools HD cards are required.

Designed to provide accurate conversion, the Aurora LT-HD features no EQ or limiting functions in order to preserve the sound going into the device.

Up to 32 channels of analog and digital input and output per HD Core or Accel Core, HDX or Native card are possible with one Aurora 16
Offers audio signal latency identical to that of the Avid HD input and output for accurate delay compensation within Pro Tools; no manual delay adjustments required
Allows input and output functions for parameter control to be controlled and monitored within Pro Tools
Interfaces with HD system using standard DigiLink cables
Allows daisy-chaining of multiple Aurora converters and other DigiLink devices via Expansion port
Lynx proprietary SynchroLock technology can be used to reduce jitter when Aurora is a clock slave or to provide stable, low jitter clock to downstream devices
RoHS compliant
Designed and manufactured in the USA by Lynx Studio Technology, Inc
Single rack space configuration
Analog input and output DB-25 connectors follow Tascam pin-out protocol
