Lynx Studio Technology introduces the Aurora(n) line of A/D and D/A converters, claiming ‘a major leap forward in the performance level, flexibility, channel count and features available in the converter/interface market’.

Lynx Studio Technology Aurora(n)The initial 14 models in the range  will include up to 32 channels with connectivity options to include Thunderbolt, USB, Dante and Pro Tools HD in a single rack space.

Designed to accommodate today’s needs as well as future requirements for the audio professional, the Aurora(n) features an I/O platform that can be configured using different modules. The first three of these will include a preamp, an analogue summing and a digital (AES3+Adat) module. As with current Lynx products, new features and capabilities will be added periodically via firmware updates. All units include a unique onboard micro SD player recorder capable of up to 32 channels of direct recording and playback designed for confidence and field playback and recording. In addition two audiophile grade headphone outs and a new1-input/3-output Word clock I/O sporting Lynx’s exclusive second generation SynchroLock-2 sample clock technology are on every unit.

‘We set out to create a new line of converters that improve performance, utility and flexibility of the current Aurora line,’ says co-owner and Chief Hardware Engineer, Bob Bauman. ‘It’s taken us a while to top these converters on the performance end, but we’ve used technology borrowed from our Hilo and combined that with the latest FPGA technology to achieve these improvements in transparency, imaging and detail. The result is a converter that not only sounds better, but also offers several unique features we know audio pros will love.’

‘People always worry when investing in audio gear, especially digital gear, that it will become obsolete tomorrow,’ adds Lynx co-founder and Chief Software Engineer David A Hoatson. ‘We’ve taken strides with Hilo and Aurora to keep current with new firmware updates and new L Slot cards. The Aurora(n) will have all this, plus the ability to later add channels and I/O options like analogue summing, digital I/O, preamps and more.’
