New & Current Vintage King Card Holders
The Lynx Studio Technology Aurora (n) line represents a quantum leap in the performance, flexibility, channel count and features of available A/D and D/A converters — and in value. The 1RU modular platform, a complete redesign of the original Aurora, is available here with 16 channel line I/O and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
Lynx Studio Technology created the LT-TB3 Thunderbolt 3 LSlot interface for Aurora(n). The LT-TB3 is a two-port Thunderbolt 3 expansion card that supports daisy-chaining Aurora(n) and Hilo converters for up to six total certified Thunderbolt devices plus a display on both Apple and Windows computers.
Signal coloration is additive and can kill an otherwise pristine mix. That’s why a colored mix begins to collapse while the transparent mix has space, definition and a level of detail that is simply unattainable with converters that add color and distortion. Lynx’s hallmark sonic transparency is why Lynx converters are being used in the most mission-critical audio applications and in the world’s finest recording facilities. Lynx converters have been specified for their uncanny ability to convert signals without adding any artifacts or color.
For audio engineers and producers demanding the most pristine recordings and mixes Lynx is the converter of choice at facilities like Dolby’s new mega complex of audio research, Skywalker Sound, NPR, and the Smithsonian Institute. Lynx converters pass the most stringent tests and shoot outs to become the sought after converters for these discerning professionals. Precision matters more than ever and there is no place for even the slightest coloration or degradation of the signal.
Some manufacturers use multiple converters on a single chip. While that is one way to fit many converter channels in a single rack space while lowering costs, it comes at a steep cost in performance. At Lynx, the analog signal path for each channel has been designed as a self-contained and shielded circuit. Each channel pair has its own dedicated conversion device. This has many sonic advantages by significantly reducing crosstalk and distortion while increasing dynamic range and performance.
Design and technology borrowed from the development of the Hilo is used to significantly improve specifications and transparency over previous models while attaining stunning Hilo-like performance.

I agree with the many positive comments here already. The build quality, sound and support are excellent. These units are configurable: AD/DA, mic preamps and also the digital interface which means you buy what you need. It's also important to restate the support from Lynx is excellent.
The Aurora-N sounds great and works perfectly.
Got this a few weeks ago and wanted to wait til I put in at least 100 hours on it before I left a review. After years of hearing great things and researching the brand, I decided to take the plunge. It's better than I'd hoped for. I've had a few of both UA and Apogee units over the years, but this is hands down my favorite yet. Sounds great, super intuitive interface, very thorough manual and a ton of great videos on their channel also. I'm running it with a Shadow Hills Equinox and it's the perfect marriage.
On top of the product itself, their support is concierge level. Very personal, attentive, and proactive. I had the rare fortune of getting a unit with a TB card issue and Paul took an hour or so to trouble shoot with me, then quickly overnighted me a new card and picked up the shipping. And I was back in business within an hour of receiving it. All around, huge fan and new brand loyalist to Lynx.
Seamless transition into my setup, works and sounds great... only giving 4 stars because I have not had it long enough to know if it will have any long term hang ups...
The Lynx converters just sound like the source. What more could you ask. I had the original Aurora 8 and the Aurora(n) is definitely a step up in clarity and even response across the sound spectrum. Integrates well with Windows 10, fast and easy to set up.
