As announced at the 2017 NAMM Show, Lynx—a long-standing name in high-quality AD/DA conversion in the pro audio community—is putting out a new iteration of its flagship Aurora converters. The Aurora(N) series now incorporates Hilo Converter Technology along with the latest in FGPA processors to achieve marked improvements in transparency, as well as a significant reduction of noise and distortion in the I/O stages. And, if eight- or sixteen-channel configurations aren’t enough for you, you’ll be pleased to see 24- and 32-channel units in this series, as well.
The fourteen Lynx offerings now available exist in various configurations to facilitate wide-ranging methods of connection. However, with LSlot expansion to facilitate Thunderbolt™, Dante, USB, Pro Tools|HD connectivity, and more, these converters are said to be future proof, able to maneuver through whatever firmware upgrades the times may bring. These are mastering-grade converters, providing uncompressed, un-equalized signal useful for many scenarios, from remote-recording trucks to live performances to the mixing stage to mastering rooms.
More additions abound, including audiophile-grade headphone jacks with independent volume control, a 480 x 128 TFT LCD screen, a 1-in/3-out word clock I/O, and up to 32 channels of real-time recording/playback via onboard microSD card. In the future, these units will interface with upcoming offerings from Lynx, including preamps, analog summing mixers, and more. In the present, these units will offer pro audio engineers a fidelity and range of configurable options to keep you occupied for much time to come.
