The Lynx Aurora 16 - Dante AD/DA converter provide world-class analog to digital and digital to analog conversion along with factory installed Dante connectivity in a compact one-rack space format. With sample rates up to 192 kHz, Aurora offers wide, open, uncompressed and unequalized audio for studios, mastering facilities, remote recording, broadcast and production. Lynx’s exclusive SynchroLock word clock offers extreme jitter reduction, providing clean digital audio signals for Aurora and other digital devices in the studio.
Aurora also avoids some of the limitations that other pro level converters have. Aurora does not have a noisy fan, does not lose channel count at higher sample rates and does not require costly analog and digital modules to achieve the unit’s full channel count.
Aurora can be used with any audio content. Equalization and limiting functions, which can color or alter the sound, have not been added. Lynx’s design provides accurate conversion, clear clean audio, wide imaging – the sound you put into Aurora is the sound that you get out of Aurora.
The Aurora 16 was nominated for a TEC award in 2005. Aurora with LT-HD has been nominated for a 2007 TEC award.

The LT-DANTE LSlot interface for Aurora and Hilo converters. The LT-DANTE is a two-port expansion card that supports the Dante audio networking standard adopted by a multitude of audio manufacturers for use in live, studio, broadcast and commercial installation applications.
The LT-DANTE LSlot card can be installed into any existing Hilo or Aurora with an easy and free firmware update. In addition, Lynx is making Dante-equipped Aurora and Hilo models available at the same time. These models are:
The LT-DANTE enables connectivity for the Aurora and the Hilo to Dante audio networks. Dante is a multi-channel audio networking solution developed by Audinate. The world’s leading professional audio manufacturers have adopted Dante, making it the standard for digital audio networking for recording, live, broadcast and commercial installations.
Dante audio networking utilizes standard IP networks to transmit high-quality, uncompressed audio with near-zero latency. It is the most economical, versatile, and easy-to-use audio networking solution and is scalable from simple installations to large-capacity networks running thousands of audio channels. The Hilo and Aurora are an obvious choice among integrators as their uncolored audio conversion provides the uncompressed high quality audio that Dante transmits over the network.
Dante allows users to replace multiple analog or multi-core cables with a single affordable Ethernet cable for transmitting high-quality multi-channel audio safely and reliably. Standard Gigabit routers can distribute signals throughout a facility. With Dante software, the network can be easily expanded and reconfigured with just a few mouse clicks. Hundreds of Dante-enabled audio products are currently available. The Lynx Aurora and Hilo converters have a proven track record in thousands of professional studios and audio production facilities around the world. Lynx has long been the leader in offering options in connectivity, computer platform choice and proactive customer support. The LT-DANTE card adds to this legacy.
