Lynx Studio Technology Aurora (n) 16 USB

New and improved 16-channel Aurora converter with 24-bit/192 kHz conversion, USB connectivity, LSlotTM expansion slot, and 2 audiophile-grade headhpone outputs
MFR# Aurora(n) 16 USB

Product Description

The U.S. made 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 new 1RU modular platform, a complete redesign of the original Aurora, is available in versions supporting from 8 to 32 inputs, and with USB, Pro Tools|HD and HDX, Thunderbolt and Dante connectivity options.

Lynx has designed its new 192 kHz/24-bit Aurora(n) converters to be future-proof. Digital audio gear can be a significant investment for any owner, but with Aurora(n) you aren’t locked into a fixed configuration. The combination of FPGA chip technology, modular design and Lynx’s new L-Slot expansion cards allow you to stay current with firmware updates and to reconfigure your system as your needs evolve, maximizing your return on investment.

But above all, there’s the performance. Borrowing Hilo Converter Technology (HTC) from the company’s mastering-quality, reference grade Hilo converter unit and combining it with FPGA circuitry, Lynx has achieved major improvements in transparency, imaging and detail. Every channel’s analog signal path is self-contained and shielded, and each channel pair has its own dedicated conversion device, significantly reducing crosstalk and distortion while increasing dynamic range and performance, with no coloration or artifacts. Lynx’s all-new SynchroLock-2 second-generation sample clock technology ensures absolute accuracy with minimal jitter.

Lynx has launched the Aurora(n) line with a choice of three modules — digital (AES3+DAT), mic preamp and analog summing — with additional options planned. The future-proof design allows you to start with eight, 16 or 24 channels and later add I/O in groups of eight. And if you decide to change your recording platform (Lynx supports OSX and Windows) or add networking, you can always swap out the LSlot card for a different connectivity choice.

To match the performance of these new converters, Lynx has also incorporated two audiophile-quality headphone outputs, each with independent level controls. Uniquely, all Aurora(n) units include an onboard Micro SD player/recorder that provides up to 32 channels of direct recording and playback. The front panel TFT LCD displays levels and functions, and supports future upgrades.

Features:

  • Complete redesign integrates Hilo Converter Technology (HCT) for analog I/O to achieve significant improvements in transparency and reductions of both noise and distortion
  • LSlotTM expansion slot for Thunderbolt, Dante, USB, ProTools|HD connectivity and more
  • Configurable I/O - pre-amp, summing & AES3+ADAT modules to be released in 2017
  • Two audiophile-grade headphone outputs
  • 1 in/3 out Word clock I/O with Lynx exclusive second generation SynchroLock-2 sample clock technology
  • Up to 32-channels of real-time recording and playback via on-board MicroSD card
  • Universal power supply
  • Designed and built in the USA

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.

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.
Michael D.
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.
