Lynx Studio Technology Aurora 16-VT – No Longer Available

Mastering AD/DA converter with variable trim
MFR# Aurora 16-VT

Product Description

Expanding its line of Aurora 192 kHz AD/DA converters, Lynx Studio Technology has announced the Aurora 16-VT Variable Trim model. Aurora 16-VT allows users to manually set the analog input and output levels within a range of +8.5 dBu to +24 dBu. 32 miniature trim pots are mounted on the primary circuit board to allow the adjustments.

Since 2004, Aurora has established its position as one of leading high end converters for recording studios around the world. Some studios, that wanted to gain the advantage of Aurora’s pristine audio quality and versatility, also required the ability to manually set the levels for optimum performance. The Aurora 16-VT provides this capability, while preserving Aurora’s other features, specifications and signature transparent sound.

One of the Beta testers for the Aurora 16-VT was producer/engineer Fabrice Dumont, a longtime Aurora owner. According to Fab, “After receiving the trimable version of the Aurora I can tell you that I think it's a winner product. I cannot tell a sonic difference between my regular Auroras and the variable trim one. They sound identical to me. Overall, this option makes replacing my old converters truly seamless. It actually feels like a true upgrade since any mix recalled with the Auroras now gain stages the same as my old converters, but sounds noticeably better.”

Bob Muller of Dangerous Music was another Beta Tester. “I think the VT is a great feature, and particularly essential to any facilities that are going to be using Auroras in a mastering setup. A lot of mix rooms are branching out into mastering and like to avail themselves of their mix rig I/O converters for both applications. I was able to calibrate the whole unit to -18dBFS = +4 dBU in under 10 minutes.”

Features:

  • Internal manual trim controls on all analog input and analog output channels
  • Analog input and output levels can be set between +8.5 dBu and +24 dBu
  • 24 bit / 192 kHz mastering quality A/D and D/A conversion
  • 192 kHz AES/EBU I/O supporting single and dual wire modes
  • Single rack space configuration
  • Extensive remote control capability via Lynx AES16, IrDA, FireWire and MIDI
  • On-board 32-channel digital mixer provides flexible I/O routing
  • Word clock I/O with Lynx SynchroLock™ sample clock technology
  • Connectivity via PCI, PCI Express with AES16 cards, ADAT, ProToolsHD, FireWire and MADI (mid 2009)

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
