Lynx Studio Technology Aurora 16 overview

  • 1Description

The Lynx Aurora 16 LT-USB AD/DA Convertor is an analog to digital/digital to analog convertor that provides digital input and output to computers via its USB 2.0 port. It features 16 channels of analog I/O at up to 24-bit and 96kHz.

The Aurora 16 LT-USB offers a variety of control for its parameters. Its front panel provides you access to settings for sample rate, sync source, routing, and metering. The included Aurora Remote Control, or ARC, software allows you to adjust the trim settings of individual inputs. It also gives you control over the input and output routing of the Aurora 16 LT-USB, acting as a built-in digital mixer for the unit.

Designed to provide you with accurate conversion, the Aurora 16 LT-USB has Lynx's proprietary SynchroLock word clock integrated into the unit. SynchroLock provides the Aurora with reduced jitter from the USB bus input, which results in more accurate audio signals being converted. The unit has no EQ or limiting functions in order to preserve the sound going into the device.

Provides up to 16 total channels of analog inputs and outputs at sampling rates up to 96kHz, and up to 8 channels at 176.4kHz or 192kHz
Included Aurora Remote Control (ARC) application allows control of Aurora parameters from software interface
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
Class compliant USB Audio 2.0 high speed card
Field upgradable over USB
Single rack space configuration
Analog input and output DB-25 connectors follow Tascam pin-out protocol
